Masters techs to slow and damage opponents.
Soldier (ソルジャー, Sorujā?) is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance that is exclusive to humes. The Soldier is the basic melee unit of the humes, with great HP and Attack growth, but low Magic and Speed. Soldiers can use their Battle Techs to heal themselves, or alter the stats of their opponents. Soldiers are only useful in the beginning of the game, as they quickly become outclassed by the more advanced jobs. Marche and a fellow hume clan member start out as Soldiers at the start of the game.
