Asterisk (アスタリスク, Asutarisuku) is a magical, semiprecious stone that appears in Bravely Default: Where the Fairy Flies and Bravely Second: End Layer. These stones govern the power of jobs and can grant the bearer with a particular job it possesses.

They are initially held by an Asterisk Holder and the player can acquire the stone upon their defeat. These characters are usually associated with an organization that aims to make a change in the world, and typically present themselves as enemies to the warriors of light. There are some who act independently, however, and serve more as challenges than villains.

The asterisk also has the power to summon a blue light (brownish in Bravely Second) stage, seen when fighting an Asterisk Holder.

There are 23 asterisks available in Bravely Default and 30 in Bravely Second.

[edit] Story

The asterisks were made by Sage Yulyana and was the keystone to his plot against the Crystal Orthodoxy.

Before, someone seeking a job would have to commune with the corresponding crystal. In addition to controlling access, the Orthodoxy profited from the requisite alms given to the temples which soon after flowed into the head temple's coffers. But the sage exposed this fraud and set a panic within high officials and Grand Patriarch. The sage then demonstrated the acquisition of job without the aid of the crystals and soon after presented the asterisk and its use to grant vocations. People who desire a job would secure permission from the Orthodoxy and pay a corresponding fee. Since the high officials only cared about the profits, they approved this new system and appointed the sage with its implementation.

Bringing with him the knowledge of asterisk craft, the sage abandoned his seat as archbishop, fled into the Yulyana Region and forever robbing the Orthodoxy over its control over jobs. The sage began to distribute the asterisks in secret to all who desired them, free of charge.

[edit] Lester DeRosso and Asterisks

Lord DeRosso suggests that, "Asterisks are sort of secret manual, housing within them the requisite knowledge and experience. In short, they are traditional training, distilled."
