The Luminary Vocation can in most ways be considered as an 'upgrade' to theMinstrel, often replacing Minstrels in the party entirely once unlocked. Possessing the highest Charm of any Vocation in the game, they very often cause monsters to become enthralled.
The Luminary's Coup de Grace raises tension and draws every enemy's attention, rendering them incapable of taking action for one turn.
