Absorbs stats and abilities when attacking!
Much like their blood-guzzling namesakes, Vampires drain HP and abilities from their foes.
The Vampire job is similar in nature to the classic Blue Mage, in that users can gain and wield the abilities of enemies. They can inflict some status ailments, namely Charm, and draining the stats and BP of their enemies. Monster abilities that can be obtained are referred to as Genomes, and are obtained when the Vampire is targeted by the attack. Once a Genome is obtained, any other Vampire can use the ability.
Tiz and Ringabel wear a beige vest over a white, long-sleeve shirt, a white ascot, gray pants, white boots, and a black cape. Tiz wears his sleeves rolled up to his elbows, a watch on his left wrist, and his pants over his boots, while Ringabel wears his sleeves all the way down, no visible watch, and his pants tucked into his boots.
Agnès and Edea wear a hairband with bat ears, a white fluffy choker, a black overcoat, a pair of black boots, and an large assortment of belts wrapped around their torsos, arms and legs. Agnès wears black socks, while Edea wears white with gray stars. In the Japanese release they wear a black two-piece underneath the belts, but in NA/PAL release they are given a black leotard instead, completely covering their torsos.

Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence, generally in the form of blood, of living creatures. Although vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures, and may go back to "prehistoric times", the term vampire was not popularized until the early 18th century.
