Head of Royal Family Guards, and one of the three strongest fighters in Lucis. While he is harsh to Noctis and the others, he is a true man of honor who takes his vows to king and country very seriously.
Cor Leonis is a companion of Noctis and a guest character in Final Fantasy XV. As one of the three best fighters in the kingdom of Lucis, he is known as the "Immortal Shogun." He is not friends with Noctis, but rather with his father, and he will be a guest character in the party on occasion.
Cor is a middle-aged man with short brown hair, light blue eyes, and a grim face. He wears a black collared jacket that has skull-motif buttons, and a shirt with skull-prints. He wears black trousers and red-soled black boots.
He is a stubborn and stern, no-nonsense military man sworn to King Regis and his country. He is strict with Noctis and his friends, and though he does not always see things eye to eye with them, he is duty-bound to watch over them.
Creation and developmentEdit
The age of 42 was picked for Cor, because in Japanese culture, 42 is seen as unlucky and it is thought that men of that age will befall great misfortune.
Touchi was first cast as the chauffeur of the Lucis family before he was recast as Cor Leonis.
Cor leonis is a Latin phrase that means "Heart of the Lion", or "Lion's heart". It is also a possible reference to the Corleone, a fictitious Sicilian Mafia family from the novel The Godfather.
Its Latin meaning may be an allusion to the recurring name in the series.
- Cor is 42 years old. In Japanese culture, yakudoshi is the belief that specific years one lives are their unluckiest, particularly when one is an adult. The age of 42 is considered one of these unlucky years, especially for males; the numerals, when pronounced separately—shi ni (four two)— come to sound in homophone like the phrase, "unto death."
