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 people, or to satisfy their own passion for dangerous explorations. This is through using illegal means such as without being strictly bound by the law of the Adventurer's Guild or a respective country.
On the other hand, workers do not receive information support from the Adventurer's Guild. Therefore, they must investigate the difficulty and expect something good in return for doing the quest by themselves. This makes the risk quite high, so much so the career of a worker proves 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.
