The Movie Characters



  • Lightning (ライトニング Raitoningu): A 21 year-old former sergeant of the Guardian Corps, Lightning sought the Pulse fal'Cie, Anima, in order to ask it to save her sister Serah, whom the fal'Cie had turned into a l'Cie. However, much to her dismay, Lightning was turned into a l'Cie herself. Her l'Cie mark is in the center of her chest. Lightning has long pink hair and is 171 cm tall (5'7"). Born as Claire Farron (Éclair Farron (エクレール・ファロン Ekurēru Faron) in the original Japanese language version) she began using her code name after the death of her parents in an attempt to emotionally reinforce herself so that she could protect Serah, but that only caused tensions to rise between them. Lightning is very independent and determined, but she is also shown to have a compassionate side. Lightning wields a gunblade called the Blaze Edge which is a combination of a gun and a sword, one collapsing into the other. She can also manipulate gravity with a device on her thumb (though due to Sazh's interference, this device becomes damaged). In battle, Lightning is very agile and uses acrobatic moves. As a l'Cie, she can summon the Eidolon Odin to fight by her side in battle, who can assume a horse-like form that she can ride on. While riding, Lightning dual wields Odin's detachable sword. Her strongest unique special attack is called Scene Drive in the Japanese version and Army of One in the North American version. Lightning is voiced by Maaya Sakamoto in the Japanese version and by Ali Hillis in the English version.
  • Snow Villiers (スノウ・ヴィリアース Sunō Viriāsu): Before becoming a l'Cie, Snow is the 21 year-old leader of Team Nora, a resistance group fighting against the government of Cocoon. He stands at a tall 200 cm (6'5"), and has light blonde hair under a black bandanna. He was nicknamed "Mr. 33 cm" by the development team of Final Fantasy XIII in reference to his shoe size. He uses his fists to take down opponents, focusing on brute force compared to the fast and agile Lightning. Snow bears the mark of the l'Cie on his lower left arm, through which he has the power to summon the twin Shiva Sister (シバシスター Shiba Sisutā) Eidolons, Nix (二クス Nikusu) and Stiria (スティリア Sutiria), who can combine into a motorcycle form for Snow to ride while toting a large gun. Unlike most grapplers, Snow changes his runes on his coat rather than buying new gloves. Snow is voiced by Daisuke Ono in the Japanese version and by Troy Baker in the English version.
  • Oerba Dia Vanille (ヲルバ=ダイア・ヴァニラ Oruba-Daia Vanira): A 19 year-old mysterious but upbeat young girl with orange-brown hair worn in pigtails. Her name stands for "Vanille of the Dia clan, from the village of Oerba," with "Vanille" being French for vanilla. Originally residing from Oerba Village located on Gran Pulse, Vanille is a Cocoon exile at the start of the game and is subsequently rescued by Team Nora. She has a childlike innocence; and is shown to be very compassionate, but at times she can also be very stubborn, and has a tendency to cry whenever she regrets a mistake. Vanille also serves as the game's narrator. Her weapon is a form of foldable fishing rod with multiple lines that can be reeled and used to attack enemies. She has been a l'Cie for a long time, one of two l'Cie given the Focus to transform into Ragnarok to destroy Cocoon, and her l'Cie mark is located on her upper left thigh. In battle, Vanille excels at using magic based attacks from a distance. Her Eidolon is Hecatoncheir, a multiple-limbed, earth-elemental summon who can transform into a bipedal mech armed with machine guns that she can pilot. Vanille is voiced by Yukari Fukui in the Japanese version and by Georgia van Cuylenburg in the English version, in which she has an Australian accent.
  • Sazh Katzroy (サッズ・カッツロイ Sazzu Kattsuroi): A 40 year-old former airship pilot of the Military, Sazh wields dual pistols (which can be combined to form a collapsible rifle), and his strong point is striking enemies from a distance. His l'Cie mark is on his chest. He has a six-year-old son named Dajh with whom he is very close. When Dajh inadvertently became a l'Cie and was taken by Sanctum, saving him became Sazh's main motivation. Sazh has a pet baby chocobo that lives inside his afro. Sazh is described as having good judgment and moral discernment. He has a gentle personality and is easily moved to tears, and joins the party early in the game. His Eidolon is Brynhildr, a female fire-elemental knight who can transform into a race car. Tetsuya Nomura based Sazh's appearance on Lionel Richie. Sazh is voiced by Masashi Ebara in the Japanese version and Reno Wilson in the English version.
  • Hope Estheim (ホープ・エストハイム Hōpu Esutohaimu): A 14 year-old boy with silvery-blonde hair and orange, yellow, and green clothing. He uses collapsible boomerangs in battle. During the Purge, his mother, Nora, offers to help Snow and Team Nora fight off PSICOM. She falls to her death during the battle, and though Snow honors her final request to protect her son, Hope nonetheless despises Snow in a grief-induced rage for his connection to his mother's death. His l'Cie mark is on the back of his left wrist and his Eidolon is the holy-elemental summon Alexander, which transforms into a fortress in Gestalt Mode, and is able to blast enemies from afar with multiple cannons. Hope is voiced by Yuki Kaji in the Japanese version and by Vincent Martella in the English version.
  • Oerba Yun Fang (ヲルバ=ユン・ファング Oruba-Yun Fangu): A raven-haired 21 year-old woman who comes from Oerba Village, donning clothing resembling the traditional Indian sari adorned with tribal accessories, and bearing the mark of a l'Cie on her right shoulder. Her name stands for "Fang of the Yun clan, from the village of Oerba." Though she is a l'Cie from Pulse, she originally works for the Cocoon Sanctum under Cid. It later turns out she is one of the two l'Cie given the focus to summon Ragnarok. She wields a spear that can transform into a sansetsukon in battle, and her Eidolon is Bahamut, who can take flight in his Gestalt-mode. As revealed by Tetsuya Nomura in an interview, during the early stages of development she was originally scripted to be a male character. Fang is voiced by Mabuki Andou in the Japanese version and by Rachel Robinson in the English version, in which, like Vanille, she also has an Australian accent.
  • Jihl Nabaat (ジル・ナバート Jiru Nabāto): An intelligent but cruel Lietenant Colonel of PSICOM with knee-length boots, blonde hair and glasses. Nabaat is first seen in the trailers interrogating the captive Vanille and Sazh. She sees the l'Cie as subhuman and is bent on exterminating them. As the subordinate of Galenth Dysley, Nabaat is the final obstacle between the main party and Dysley; however, she is killed when he decides she has outlived her usefulness. Nabaat is voiced by Mie Sonozaki in the Japanese version and by Paula Tiso in the English version.
  • Yaag Rosch (ヤーグ・ロッシュ Yāgu Rosshu): An intimidating-looking man with a scar on his forehead and silver hair that is tied back in a ponytail. Rosch is a PSICOM Director who questions his orders from the Sanctum and knew the fal'Cie were guiding Cocoon, though he feels he must follow his orders for the sake of the people of Cocoon. He is mortally wounded after fighting the main party in the Proudclad; after begging them to save Cocoon, Rosch sacrifices himself to ensure the main party is not pursued by monsters. Rosch is voiced by Hiroki Tōchi in the Japanese version and by Jon Curry in the English version.
  • Cid Raines (シド・レインズ Shido Reinzu): An Air Force Brigadier from the Sanctum who commands the warship Lindblum. Like Rosch, Cid doubts the government in its current state and believes that Cocoon should be run by its people instead of the fal'Cie. However, he himself had been turned into a l'Cie with the Focus of helping the party to overcome various trials and ensure they accomplish their Focus. As he wanted to save Cocoon from destruction like them, he decided to abandon his Focus and fight the team, becoming a Cie'th-like being in the process. Upon his defeat, Cid is retrieved by Dysley and is manipulated into Primarch to create chaos in Eden, retaining his strong human will as he asks Rygdea to put him out of his misery. Cid is voiced by Yuichi Nakamura in the Japanese version and by Erik Davies in English version. Cid continues the final fantasy tradition of having his name used for a character in each of the games of the popular series.
  • Galenth Dysley (ガレンス・ダイスリー Garensu Daisurī): The main antagonist of the game, Lightning and the group's archnemesis, and Primarch of the Sanctum. Though he acts like a man for the people, he is a cruel figure who desires nothing for than to end his existence. His true form is the Cocoon fal'Cie Barthandelus (バルトアンデルス Barutoanderusu, Baldanders in the original Japanese version), intending to use Ragnarok to destroy Orphan and Cocoon so the Maker would return to this world. Mortally wounded by Lightning's group, making sure that they are strong enough to defeat Orphan and to end his own existence, Dysley's dying body ends up being assimilated into Orphan, causing it to become its shell. Dysley is voiced by Masaru Shinozuka in the Japanese version and by S. Scott Bullock in the English version.
  • Orphan (オーファン Ōfan): A wheel-like, sun-elemental fal'Cie in a state of unbirth who serves as the power source of Cocoon, holding the small planetoid in its preternatural orbit above Pulse. Orphan's defeat is the Focus of Lightning's group. Orphan desires nothing more than its own destruction above all else, in hope that the Maker will return to the world with Cocoon's demise. But, as they are unable to go against their Focus in any way, fal'Cie create l'Cie to ensure Orphan's birth so it can be killed, causing Cocoon's destruction. Though Orphan is killed, the fal'Cie scheme does not succeed. Orphan's shell is voiced by Masaru Shinozuka in the Japanese version and by Julia Fletcher and S. Scott Bullock in the English version, while its true form is voiced by Hiro Shimono in the Japanese version and by Michael Sinterniklaas in the English version.
  • Serah Farron (セラ・ファロン Sera Faron): Though mentioned by her given name in earlier news, Yoshinori Kitase confirmed her appearance and full name during Gamescom 2009. Serah is 18 years old and is Lightning's younger sister. She is also engaged to Snow - a relationship to which Lightning strongly objects. Serah is the first Pulse l'Cie in Cocoon by the fal'Cie Anima, and her mark is located on her left arm. She was given the Focus to lure most potential l'Cie to the ruins where Anima resides. She turns to crystal after unknowingly fulfilling the Focus through Lightning and Snow as they attempt to find a means to save her in the fal'Cie's place. After the defeat of Orphan, Serah returns to normal and is reunited with her sister and Snow. Serah is voiced by Minako Kotobuki in the Japanese version and by Laura Bailey in English version.
  • Rygdea (リグディ Rigudi): A captain working under Cid Raines' command, who kills him at his command. He later heads to Orphan's Cradle along with the Cavalry to bring an end to Orphan. However, Dysley turns him into a Cie'th before he can reach Orphan. Rygdea is voiced by Yasuyuki Kase in the Japanese version and by Josh Robert Thompson in English version.
  • Dajh Katzroy (ドッジ・カッツロイ Dojji Kattsuroi): Sazh's 6-year old son, whose mother died when he was three years old. The baby Chocobo that rides around in Sazh's afro actually belongs to Dajh, who bought it at a gift shop during their travels. When Dajh unexpectedly becomes a l'Cie, he is taken from Sazh by Jihl Nabaat as a martyr for Cocoon to use his power of sensing "Pulse" to track down other l'Cie. He is turned into a crystal after completing his Focus. Like Serah, Dajh returns to normal after the defeat of Orphan, and is reunited with his father. Dajh is voiced by Shōtarō Uzawa in the Japanese version and by Connor Villard in English version.
  • NORA (ノラ Nora): The resistance group lead by Snow. In the Japanese version, NORA is in reference to the word "noraneko", meaning stray cat. In the English version, it is an acronym that stands for "No Obligations, Rules, or Authority." In the Jump Festa 2009 and the official global trailer, the four known members of NORA are featured in the first Final Fantasy XIII demo. The members of NORA are seen participating in the hijack of the captives' train and the resulting battles, though Maqui does not participate in the fighting. Gadot, Lebreau, and Maqui were designed by Nao Ikeda, who based their clothing on the athletic clothing styles of basketball, beach volleyball, and snowboarding, respectively. The four known members of NORA are featured in the first Final Fantasy XIII demo.
    • Gadot (ガドー Gadō): A man with an orange mohawk and Snow's childhood friend; he uses a machine gun in battle and is quick to engage. Gadot is voiced by Biichi Satō in the Japanese version and by Zack Hanks in the English version.
    • Lebreau (レブロ Reburo): A black haired woman whose demeanor is made out to be that of invincibility. She also runs a bar as a means of garnering monetary resources for NORA. She is also said to be Snow's childhood friend. Lebreau is voiced by Yū Asakawa in the Japanese version and by Anndi McAfee in the English version.
    • Maqui (マーキー Mākī): An adolescent boy who is not so brazen as Snow or Gadot, but who has a knack for machinery and can therefore provide more secretive funds to NORAs operations. He and Serah were friends before Maqui joined NORA. He seems to idolize Snow to the point of emulating his attire. Maqui is voiced by Makoto Naruse in the Japanese version and by Daniel Samonas in the English version.
    • Yuj (ユージュ Yūju): A young man with blue hair who is described as up to date with fashion and style. He is also commissioned to protect the Pulse exiles. Yuj is voiced by Wataru Hatano in the Japanese version and by Jeff Fischer in the English version.
