I plan on having a Rune Master (Dark/Light) and Bishop (Light/Light).

So I mean, Lord sounds the most logical...

Because you have Carlie (and light Carlie, the strongest heal light), I strongly recommend Paladin. You already have healing covered easily, and Paladin gets a decent single-target heal as well. You also get to equip the Sacred Shield which reduces magic attack damage. And... you get a nice FST, and best of all, Saint Saber. There are some powerful dark enemies that you can murder with this ability late in the game. You have no need for two characters with MTHL, so Paladin is definitely the way to go.

A quick correction:

a shield's bonus properties don't exist.

and it's boost in AGI/Evade isn't noticible either.

------------------

the ONLY shield that has any value is the Oath Shield (Lord ONLY), which prevents status effects (SEs).

Hmm, I thought it was just the evade bonus that didn't work. Regardless, two multi-heals is overkill. I can remember plenty of situations where I wish I had Saint Saber. Especially on Duran/Angela's path.

Doesn't Bishop learn Saint Saber?

Bishop does get Saint Saber.

Meaning Duran really has no place in this party at all.
Out of personal preference, I do not use glitches to sequence break game, or skip required items.

Heck, Dark Duran hardly has any place in this party. Go with Paladin for the FST, even though you'll probably never get to use it.
It's rare and unexpected, but strangely beautiful, like a unicorn using his horn to gore a priest.

Neither of Duran's light classes will contribute anything at all useful in terms of skills, so the only choice to make is Lord for status immunity and slightly higher attack (better final weapon) vs. Paladin for the full screen tech. Personally, I'd go with Paladin.

If it's not too late to reconsider, though, you would probably be better off with the Swordmaster than either of them. You end up with saber overlap, but at least you get Leaf Saber to recharge the Rune Master, as well as a full screen tech and higher attack power. You might also be better off with Carlie as the Necromancer instead of Bishop, so you have at least some stat magic support, and Leaf Saber can compensate for the high MP costs.

Be aware, though, that this party has very little synergy - Duran and Angela don't work that well together, and Carlie is a poor choice of support for the two of them.
In theory, theory and practice are identical

I chose my team because it seemed the most relevant in terms of the story.

Duran seems the "main" story, and Angela and him share the common foe. The whole backstory of Carlie seems to resonate with that, especially since her whole lineage.

I know there are great arguments for the other members, but IMO they take a backseat to the others.

I think I'm going to go with Lord.

Thanks guys :)

Oh man did I screw that up. I've been really pulling VeghEsthers lately. Sorry, Alma. <_<
