The Oracle (予言士, Yogenshi?, lit. Prognosticator; Predictor), or Mystic (陰陽士, Onmyōshi?, lit. Yin Yang User), is a job class that has appeared in only a few Final Fantasy games. They use spells that either give someone status effects or deal HP or MP damage. Oracles' abilities vary drastically between games, and as such, it is hard to say what the standard Oracle does.
The only notable Oracle in the series has been Banon from Final Fantasy VI, but he acts more like a White Mage. His Japanese job class title is "Shinto Priest" (神官, Shinkan?), with "Oracle" being a localization for the Game Boy Advance release of Final Fantasy VI. This title fits more with his healing ability, Pray.
The Oracle appears as a job and is found in the sea chasm in the Advance and mobile ports.
Banon's job was removed from the North American Super Nintendo version. Within the Final Fantasy III Nintendo Player's Guide, his job is given as Top Returner. The English Game Boy Advance version retained the job titles and Banon is a Oracle.
The Mystic (also known as Oracle), is a job appearing after having a level 2 White Mage (level 3 in the War of the Lions version).
The Mystic appears as a character card.
Oracle and Mystic appear with Wind-, Water-, and Earth-elemental cards.
Oracle from Final Fantasy V appears on a Triple Triad card.

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.A practitioner of
