"Dexterous and nimble, thieves excel at stealing from unwary and evading blows."
The Thief is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A3. This job allows the user to Steal various loot from an enemy, as well as Gil and Accessories, using various abilities learned from knives. It is available to Humes and Moogles. Thieves are very fast and have high evasion, but still have passable attack and magick stats (making it an ideal side class choice for any character who needs a speed boost). While no longer able to steal equipment (save for Accessories), thieves have the ability to steal loot that would otherwise be hard to come by in the normal course of the game. Enemies afflicted by sleep, stop, or petrify are easier to steal from (although unlike the first game, each subsequent theft on the same unit is less likely to succeed, even if these status effects are in place). A Scholar's Study ability can show exactly what can be stolen from a specific unit, making it useful to have if a player is looking for specific loot/items.
