Powerful mageknight that serves the prince.
Biskmatar (ビスクマータ, Bisukumāta?) is a special job in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. It is a powerful mageknight held by Llednar Twem, whose purpose is to serve as personal bodyguard for Prince Mewt. Unlike other special jobs such as Judgemaster and Hermetic, its growth rate is unique and not based on another basic job.

Though not playable by normal means, the Biskmatar has a unique growth rate. Despite low speed and only average HP, it possesses high Magic Resistance, and above-average Attack, Defense, and Magic Power, representing a middle ground between fighter and mage.

The Japanese name Bisukumāta may be a compound of "bisque" (referring to bisque porcelain dolls) and automata (the plural of "automaton") referring to an automated doll, which fits the description of Llednar. It may also be based on a serbo-croation root "kismet" meaning "destiny." Biskmatar would then mean 'he without a destiny'.
