Templar (神殿騎士, Shindenkishi?, lit. Temple Knight or テンプルナイト, Tenpuru Naito?, lit. Temple Knight) is a recurring job class in the Final Fantasy series. The job originates from the Ivalice series of games, but has also appeared in additional spin-off titles in the series.
Templars are knights who work close to their church, using a combination of physical weapons and magick. They tend to be stronger than other magic-using jobs, since they can equip heavy armor, but they also have weaker magick stats compared to other magic jobs.

They can equip every type of armor, except "female" armor such as Minerva Plate and Rubber Suit.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Knights Templar were among the most wealthy and powerful of the Western Christian military orders and among the most prominent actors of the Christian finance. The organisation existed for nearly two centuries during the Middle Ages. Templar knights, in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross, were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades. They held great power throughout Europe before being forcibly dissolved through violence by Phillip IV of France in an attempt to attack the papacy. Pope Clement V tried to protect them, but failed. Nowadays, the Order of the Knights Templar is subject to numerous myths and legends.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Knights Templars were famous for bearing shields marked with a large red cross and wore white mantels. In the Final Fantasy series, bangaa Templars cannot wield shields without the Shield Bearer Passive ability.
