- Main article: Onmyo Monk
The Onmyo Monk is a humanoid class in Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness.
The Onmyo Monk is by and far a situational class, using Geo Panels and Symbols to turn the tide in battle. The Item Sea is where they are truly at home, with unique abilities that they can use to affect passage, such as modifying the Bonus Gauge or randomizing the Geo Panel/Effect make-up.
Stat-wise, the Onmyo Monk acts as a mixture of a Star Skull and a Priest, with moderate INT, SP, and RES, as well as a natural development of star-elemental spells. Later tiers of the Onmyo Monk also develop a rather high (for the class type) ATK and HIT. However, the Monk's dabbling into both Magic types prevents him from properly specializing in either, and as such, has a lower damage/healing potential than either of the core classes he is emulating. It is best to describe the Onmyo Monk as a "back-up Mage."
Weapon Mastery, like most casters, is based around the Staff and the Book, though the Onmyo Monk's moderate ATK and HIT, as well as developmental Mastery in Swords/Spears/Bows make it completely possible for him to wield any weapon other than a Gun or Fist. The Monks Evilities all center around the residual damage caused by Geo Chains. These range from Protecting himself from Chain Damage, to increasing overall Chain/Geo Effect damage by 100%.
“Uses special skills to control battles. Good at suppressing the land's power.”
—Job Description, Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness
“Practitioners of Onmyo Magic, a technique developed in the far east regions of another Netherworld. Onmyo Magic uses curses, fortune telling, and feng shui. They can control the land, and their spells have a wider range of properties than traditional magic. They aren't appreciated as much because they lack pure power, but are highly regarded in some circles.”
