In Engage, unlocking Jean is not much complex as you get access to him pretty early in the game. Once you complete Chapter 5 of the main storyline, open the world map to see a new notification of Paralogue Quests popping on it. After selecting the Budding Talent Quest, head to the Tea-Field Village and spot him. Once you find Jean, reach out and interact with him to recruit him to your team.

One thing to keep in mind is that before you try to unlock Jean, make sure that you already have Alear on your team. Otherwise, Jean will refuse to join you. Also, if you’re in high-difficulty settings, you have to make sure Jean does not die before joining your group.

Class Evolution

The healing powers of Jean can prove lifesaving in combat, helping you to change the outcomes of critical battles. 

Jean has a pretty decent default class. However, if you want to add some spice to the character, you can always use the Second Seal to change his class and test out his performance on the Battlefield
