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 job, was chosen because the game has no Final Fantasy 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.
