Warriors who wield spears to pierce enemy armor.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age description

Uhlan is a License Board in the Zodiac versions of Final Fantasy XII, represented by the zodiac sign of Taurus.

The Uhlan has access to 131 licenses, which require 7,431 LP to unlock, as well as up to 9 additional licenses through summon licenses costing 530 LP, and 2 additional licenses costing 90 LP through Quickening licenses.

ProfileEdit

Uhlan are similar to the classical Dragoon job in their heavy armor and use of spears as their main weapon. However, they cannot use the Jump command. The Uhlan also bears some similarity to the Dark Knight job due to their access to black magick and the Souleater command.

In The Zodiac Age version, the player can use two license boards for each party member. One combination for Uhlan is to pair it with the Archer to benefit from Archer's Swiftness licenses and ranged weapons, while Archer benefits from their high Strength. Combining Uhlan with Bushi would benefit katana damage from Uhlan's high Strength and heavy armor. This combination allows the character to equip both Holy Lance (Holy-elemental spear) with White Robes (boosts Holy-elemental damage by 50%).

Pairing Shikari with Uhlan can also be good, as it gives Shikari some heavy armor and ability to hit flying enemies with spears and covers every element in the game.

EtymologyEdit

Uhlan were originally Polish light cavalry soldiers armed with lances, sabres, pistols, and rifles. Later they also served in the Prussian and Austrian armies. Similar troops also existed in other European armies, where they were instead known as "lancers" or "dragoons." The name of Uhlan instead of "dragoon", a traditional Final Fantasy job, was chosen because the game has no Jump command available to the player.

Traditionally in FF games it's a ryûkishi (dragoon/lancer) who carries a spear, but in this game there's no jumping, so that didn't really fit. I began to research what else might go with a spear, and discovered that there were soldiers called Uhlan in Poland who carried them, so that decided that.
