Final Fantasy/Vitality

The statistic Vitality is a measure of how much damage a hero can take before being slain. It is necessary to have a high Vitality score for any warrior who intends on engaging foes in hand-to-hand combat. Fighters, Knights, Black Belts, and Masters tend to be extremely tough, and the White Mage and White Wizard are also fairly resistant to enemy assaults. The Black Mage and Black Wizard have low Vitality scores and are thus more likely to be killed quickly in a melee.
