Bartz as a Beastmaster.

The Beastmaster (魔獣使い, Majūtsukai?, lit. Monster Tamer), also known as Trainer, is a job class that appears in various titles in the series. Beastmasters are characterized by wearing clothing similar to one who works with animals. Beastmasters have been known to use weapons from daggers to axes to whips. Their stats are usually physical in nature and their abilities include the ability to catch monsters and release them on their opponents, and can also control the actions of opponents and lure them away.

The Beastmaster cannot control the five races.

Trainer is one of the few dresspheres in the game where each girl has unique abilities. Yuna has a dog, Rikku has a monkey, and Paine has a raptor.
