bix apparently was inspired by the attire of the Scholar class in the Final Fantasy 3 remake. I do not suspect there is a great deal of learning going on in this environment, however.
Additionally, neither of us is advocating that anybody play the Final Fantasy 3 remake. And if you do, absolutely do not look at any gamefaqs guide for it for any reason, as they would have you spend months of your life building up levels for no reason to beat a game that is not all that hard or interesting to complete. I only lost a few hours doing faq-like bidding, and worrying what the faq thought about what I already did, and I still feel like an idiot.
