Machinist

Machinist is one of those jobs that where the English variation comes from two different Japanese-language jobs. The first and more common of these is 機工士 [kikoushi] or 'machine factory worker', the second is マシーナリー [machinery] in Japanese. Both jobs concentrate on dealing out damage through their weapons (commonly guns), but their main focus is often in debuffing or deploying machines.
Examples of Machinists are Edgar Roni Figaro from FF6, Mustadio Bunansa from FFT and Stephanivien of FF14.
