Worker (ワーカー Wākā) is a job similar to an adventurer. However, they receive and complete requests on their own without going through the Adventurer's Guild. In a way, their job is mainly aligned with illegal business practices.
Although most of the workers selected this job to just earn more money than normal adventurers, a few of them became workers to help the people, or to satisfy their own passion for dangerous explorations. This is through using illegal means such as without being strictly bound by the rules of the Adventurer's Guild or a respective country.
On the other hand, workers do not receive informational or administrative support from the Adventurer's Guild. Therefore, they must not only investigate the difficulty of a quest, but also analyze the risk and reward involved by themselves. This independence from a recognized body, makes the risk quite high, so much so that it bolsters the career of a worker, proving their strength and discernment.

Known Worker Groups
- Workers were different from adventurers; they formed parties based on the power of money and useful relationships.
- They are called "dropouts" among the adventurers. If adventurers are unable to obey the rules, then their only alternative is to become a worker.
- Unlike workers, the adventurers are forbidden from using healing magic on common people unless a certain fee is paid to the Adventurer's Guild.
- The existence of workers can be described as working only for the money. As a result, they are willing to ignore regulations and often make a mess of things for that reason alone. However, there are also other known cases, where they have brought benefits to the people's welfare, such as the creation of cheaper medicines.
