Mystic, also known as Oracle (known as Augur in the Japanese artistic materials), is a job from Final Fantasy Tactics. A magic-based job, they inflict status effects with their abilities, specifically negative ones. At the beginning of the spell's animation, a shikigami appears before inflicting a status. Out of all the magic-based jobs, they have the best offensive equipment. It costs 5,970 JP to master this job.

Appearance-wise, Mystic is a very Sino-styled class. Its name in the Japanese version, Onmyōshi, means Yin-Yang User, or Taoist in the Chinese language. All of its action abilities are originally written in Kanji (Han character) without exception.

Leveling this job to level 3 unlocks the Orator, while leveling it to level 4 along with White Mage, Black Mage, and Time Mage unlocks Arithmetician.

A practitioner of Onmyōdō is called an Onmyōji or Onmyōshi in the traditional Japanese esoteric cosmology, a mixture of natural science and occultism. It is based on the Chinese philosophies of Wu Xing and Yin and yang, introduced into Japan at the beginning of the 6th century. Onmyōshi were thought to be able to manipulate shikigami, beings from Japanese folklore. It was thought to be some sort of kami, represented by a small ghost or spirit.
