Magic of Vagrant Story

The magic system in Vagrant Story understandably varies greatly from the Final Fantasy system. Instead of color-based spell categories, they have actual names. Warlock spells equal Black Magic, Shaman spells equal White Magic, Sorcerer spells include both White and Green Magic, and Enchanter spells have been categorized in many different ways in different Final Fantasies.
The links are to corresponding spells in actual Final Fantasies.
