The Sword Saint (全剣技, Zen Ken Gi?), also known as Holy Swordsman, is a hard-to-obtain job that appears in multiple games in the series.
Sword Saints are seasoned warriors who have trained themselves to become extremely strong physical attackers, with high Strength and Defense, and the ability to wield Greatswords. In Final Fantasy Tactics, Sword Saints can use every Swordskill in the game, allowing them to perform powerful magical attacks.

Cidolfus Orlandeau is by default a Sword Saint, and it's implied Balbanes Beoulve was one as well. Sword Saint is arguably the best class in the game. If equipped with swords or Knight Swords, he can use every Swordskill in the game -- that is, the powerful spells cast by Holy Knights, Dark Knights, and Divine Knights. Aside from dealing heavy area-of-effect damage, these skills inflict status such as Silence, restore HP and MP to the caster, or break the victim's equipment.
