Strong with weapons and enhancement magic.
—In-game Description

Templar (神殿騎士, Shindenkishi?) is a job from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. It is available to bangaa. Templars are semi-magical bangaa that wield powerful spears and knightswords in combat. While the Attack growth is decent, Speed growth would have the player considering leveling up as a White Monk instead of a Templar. Using a Black Robe and the Dragoon's abilities can lead to massive elemental damage.

They can equip every type of armor in the game, i.e. Armor, Clothing, Robes, etc. However, this does not include "female" armor such as Minerva Plate and Rubber Suit.

Templars are nicely balanced between Attack, Defense and Magic Power, although they only truly excel in defense, and are tied with Paladins, Sages, and nu mou Illusionists as the slowest job in the game.

Knights Templar were among the most wealthy and powerful of the Western Christian military orders and among the most prominent actors of the Christian finance. The organisation existed for nearly two centuries during the Middle Ages. Templar knights, in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross, were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades. They held great power throughout Europe before being forcibly dissolved through violence by Phillip IV of France in an attempt to attack the papacy. Pope Clement V tried to protect them, but failed. Nowadays, the Order of the Knights Templar is subject to numerous myths and legends.
