Your mistakes were twofold, I'm afraid. You sprung your trap without looking to see if the game you hunted was the one you'd snare. And you sold me short, I'm no thief. I'm a Sky Pirate.
Sky Pirate is a special job in Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions. It is Balthier's default job that focuses on guns. It costs 6,600 JP to master. It is an enhanced combination of the Thief and Machinist jobs, with the Plunder abilities having a higher rate of stealing compared to Steal.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Air pirates, also known as sky pirates, are a type of stock character from science fiction and fantasy. Fictional air pirates typically operate as pirates in the air, or, in general, the atmosphere of a planet, dwarf planet or moon, and travel by aircraft, as opposed to the more traditional pirates on the high seas, who travel by ship.
