- "To tain in symbology is to train your body and mind to achieve harmony."
- —Granny from Marze, Expel.
A Symbologist, also known as a Runologist or Heraldic Wizard/Witch is one who has mastered the use of Symbology (Known as Runology on the planet Elicoor II) and is specially proficient with it. It is natural that no Symbologist masters all of the areas of symbology, and thus, through training, each symbologist finds his\her area of expertise, which are usually divided into the elements of offensive symbols or healing symbols. Some symbologists are also able to use both healing and offensive symbols, but it is rare to see one that masters both fields at the same time.
Thoughout the Star Ocean games, many symbologists are part of the parties that journey on heroic quests to save the Universe.
One who has mastered the special technology of symbology.
One who serves the Sacred Kingdom of Aquaria by utilizing a technique known as runology. Since only a very small number of people are initiated into the art of runology, the ability to use these techniques alone marks a person as an important individual. Although some runologists do not serve Aquaria, these few exceptions to the rule are almost all people who have absconded from the kingdom themselves, students of teachers who have done so, or retirees.
