Orlandu

Sword Saint (剣聖, Kensei?), also known as Holy Swordsman, is a special job from Final Fantasy Tactics. Orlandeau's default job, it focuses on swords and nearly all sword techniques excluding Spellblade and Blade of Ruin abilities. This job is a powerhouse, and needs little support. Sword Saint is arguably the best job due to the slaughter it can unleash, and its effectiveness is further boosted as Orlandeau comes equipped with the Excalibur.

Sword Saint has the strongest stat gains in the game—physically exceptional and magickally competent, as well with high HP—it has versatile equipment options, able to equip not only helmets and armor but hats, clothes, and robes. Though only swords and knight swords will allow Orlandeau access to the job's abilities, he can also equip daggers, ninja blades, and katana, indicating his mastery of swordplay. It costs 5,250 JP to master this job.

Trivia Edit

  • Northswain's Strike's additional instant death effect is a reference to the Chinese deity of Northern Dipper. He is said to associate with death whose role is close to that of the Grim Reaper.
  • In the original Final Fantasy Tactics for the PlayStation, "Stasis Sword" is mistranslated as "Steady Sword" during special quotes.

Etymology Edit

In Japan where they valued swordsmanship (Kenjutsu), a person of truly exceptional skill in swordsmanship was often honored with the title of Sword Saint (Kensei). This implied not only a high degree of skill in swordsmanship, but also one of a high degree in moral perfection as well. Many were the founders of popular schools of swordsmanship. Notable Sword Saint were Itō Ittōsai, Chiba Shusaku Narimasa, Tsukahara Bokuden, and Higaonna Kanryō.
