Orator (話術士, Wajutsushi?), also known as Mediator in the original version or Talker in the Japanese version, is a job from Final Fantasy Tactics. A magical-based job, the Orators use speech as their main form of attack, along with guns. It is through the Orator the player can recruit monsters into their party, but they can also be used to recruit human characters. It costs 3,900 JP to master this job. Despite the Orators' illustration, they cannot equip any rods, staves, nor poles in-game.
A warrior who participates in battle using Speechcraft. Words, rather than swords, are the orator's weapons.
