— Lyle and Colin, bullying Mewt, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
Colin (コリン, Korin?) is a character from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. A resident of St. Ivalice, Colin attends the same school where Marche Radiuju enrolled after moving into town, where he is the PE Head — a student, usually a boy, who cleans up the place after PE.
Colin is in cohorts with two other kids, Guinness and Lyle. The three kids are school bullies who enjoy taunting and bullying Mewt Randell and other kids at school. During the snowball "fight", the bullies ganged up upon Mewt, throwing snowballs and constantly berating him. Colin made the situation worse by throwing a rock at Mewt, causing the timid boy to bleed. Mr. Leslaie saw this and stopped the "fight" immediately, sending them off to his office.
It is unknown what happened to them when St. Ivalice was transformed by the Gran Grimoire, until Marche and Clan Nutsy accepted the quest Prof in Trouble to save the nu mou Professor Auggie in Lutia Pass. Here, they found out that the three bullies have been turned into Zombies and attacking passers-by. Marche and the clan defeated them with ease.
When St. Ivalice was reverted to its initial state, so did the three bullies, although Marche and Mewt have gathered much courage to go against them. After the game, Lyle, Guinness, and himself will also be Vampires in the mission Mortal Snow, where the clan will recruit Ritz Malheur.

Like the other school children, Colin's PE Head Job class has its own unique stat growth rate programmed into the game, though it cannot be accessed by the player without a cheat device. However, because it is only used in a tutorial, its stats are quite low and has no abilities.
