Parivir (用心棒, Yōjinbō?, lit. Bodyguard) is a job class in the Final Fantasy series. Their skillsets, known as Flair, allows them to use numerous elemental and status effect inflicting sword techniques.


Final Fantasy XII[]

During the Rank I mark "Marauder in the Mines" (Nidhogg) the non-player character named Aekom mentions that the beast is too strong for Bhujerba's Parivir. The word is italicized, implying that it is a Bhujerban word within the context of the game. The Parivir job is otherwise not shown.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift[]

Parivir is a job available to humes. Parivirs wield katanas and can inflict elemental damage and/or status effects with their sword techniques, at virtually no MP cost. Their defenses leave much to be desired, but they are considered top-notch front-line fighters.

Final Fantasy Tactics S[]

Parivirs appeared as hume SR units available for players to recruit. The Parivirs were frontline units that functioned as strong physical attackers and had access to the Rear Attack ability, which dealt three sword slashes to enemy units.

The original in-game lore described them as former ink painters that took up the life of a wandering swordsman.

Parivir is Sanskrit for "bodyguard". Its Japanese name is Yojimbo; Yōjimbō (用心棒) means "bodyguard" in Japanese. The job is called Ronin in the French version. Their itinerant status is probably the reason why the Parivir cannot equip the Genji Armor.
