Templar (神殿騎士, Shindenkishi?, lit. Temple Knight or テンプルナイト, Tenpuru Naito?, lit. Temple Knight) is a recurring job class in the Final Fantasy series. The job originates from the Ivalice series of games, but has also appeared in additional spin-off titles in the series.
Templars are knights who work close to their church, using a combination of physical weapons and magick. They tend to be stronger than other magic-using jobs, since they can equip heavy armor, but they also have weaker magick stats compared to other magic jobs.
In the War of the Lions port, Aliste Rosenheim is also a Templar.
The Templar is a class exclusive to bangaa. Templars use swords and spears to attack and can also affect the statuses of foes and allies.
The bangaa-exclusive Templars make a return.
The Templar appears as a job and is obtained after defeating Braev Lee. It has an S-rank in swords and armor, as well as an A-rank in spears, shields, and helms but more ranged or magic-based equipment are low-ranked. Their abilities temporarily raise their stats.
Non-Final Fantasy guest appearancesEdit
The Templar appears on an ultimate card.
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.
- Knights Templars were famous for bearing shields marked with a large red cross and wore white mantels. In the Final Fantasy series, bangaa Templars cannot wield shields without the Shield Bearer Passive ability.
