Elder (Bishop on the PS1) is Simon's unique job class. As a story-related job used in cutscenes, it serves no purpose in battle as there is no abilities associated with the job. Curiously, the developers did take time to give it a job description.

Bishop is exclusive to the bangaa race and is their only magic-based job. Bishops learn a variety of offensive and defensive magic, and can be seen as a variant of the Red Mage job. Bishops are the only job class that can cast the spell Holy. They also have access to Magic Counter and Half MP.

To unlock Bishops, a character will need to master two White Monk action abilities. Bishops use Prayer on the battlefield, and equip staves, robes, light armor and hats.

The Bishop is an asterisk obtained after defeating Nikolai Nikolanikov.

The Bishop is a spellcasting job, using Holy Magic to aid allies. Their innate ability Good Measure, makes casting a spell twice on the same target stronger. Bishops are good healers, but their magic is percentage-based, or removes only a single status effect at a time. They also have no offensive spells of their own, outside of healing the undead back to the grave.
