Wanting to outgrow the painful memories of her parents' death, she abandoned her childhood name 'Claire' to take up her current moniker.

Faced with a Focus that demands the destruction of Cocoon, Lightning now refuses the destiny thrust upon her by the fal'Cie, and swears to follow her own will through to the end.

To prevent his beloved Serah from becoming a Cie'th, he swears to help her fulfill her Focus. However, before they discover what that Focus is, Serah falls into a crystal slumber.

Second entry

Updated after taming Bahamut


Without a family to take care of him, Snow was raised in a Sanctum facility. Now he leads the rebellious group of youths known as NORA.

Believing Serah's last words to be his Focus, Snow pours all of his energy into saving Cocoon.

Nothing will prevent him from protecting his world and seeing Serah return from her crystallized state.

Sazh Katzroy comforting a child.

First entry

Added during Chapter Three, in Lake Bresha


Sazh is a trained civilian airship pilot.

After joining Lightning in her battle against the lowerworld entity, Sazh shares her fate in becoming a l'Cie.

A trained civilian airship pilot, Sazh has been raising his son alone since the untimely passing of his wife almost three years ago. His son, Dajh, became a Sanctum l'Cie during the Euride Gorge incident. Without a clear Focus, the little boy will eventually turn into a monstrous Cie'th.

Guessing that Dajh's task could be to destroy beings from Pulse, Sazh boards the Purge train as part of a plan to take care of the fal'Cie himself. His self-appointed mission ends with him becoming a Pulse l'Cie—an existence that puts him into conflict with his son's status as a Sanctum servant.

Third entry

Updated after Sazh and Vanille escape captivity on the Palamecia


A trained civilian airship pilot, Sazh has been raising his son alone since the untimely passing of his wife almost three years ago.

He mends his relationship with his father, and sets off on a journey to discover a way to escape his destiny as a l'Cie.

Oerba Dia VanilleEdit

OerbaDiaVanille Nautilus

Oerba Dia Vanille.

First entry

Added during Chapter Three, in Lake Bresha, under the name 'Vanille

Second entry

Updated at the start of Chapter Nine, under the name 'Vanille


Pretending to be branded at the same time as the rest of her companions, Vanille actually became a l'Cie on Gran Pulse long ago.

Hundreds of years in the past, she and Fang completed their Focus and turned to crystal. Upon waking, they seemed to have lost all memory of those events, and had no knowledge of their present task.

While trying to prevent Vanille from becoming a Cie'th, Fang caused the incident at Euride Gorge—the event that turned Dajh into a Sanctum l'Cie.

Parted from her friend, Vanille wandered Cocoon alone until the day of the Purge.

Third entry

Updated after Vanille tells Sazh about herself on the Palamecia


Vanille is a l'Cie who was born on Gran Pulse.

Several hundred years ago, both she and Fang entered crystal stasis. While they slumbered, the entire structure housing them and the fal'Cie was transported to Cocoon.

After they awake and she learns that Fang is missing memories, Vanille lies and says she has forgotten her Focus as well. She wants to escape from a fate that could lead to more suffering for everyone, but her twisting of the truth has the opposite effect: it leads Fang into rash actions that have devastating consequences for both Dajh and Serah.

Fourth entry

Updated after taming Alexander


Vanille is a l'Cie who was born on Gran Pulse.

Given a Focus to destroy Cocoon, she became Ragnarok and scarred the floating world's shell. Though the battle was lost, both Vanille and Fang were 'rewarded' with a centuries-long crystal stasis.

Second entry

Centuries ago, she and Vanille were given a Focus to destroy Cocoon. Fang became Ragnarok and cracked Cocoon's shell, but they were both turned to crystal before their task was complete. The Vestige in which they slumbered was lifted by a fal'Cie onto the very world they tried to shatter. Waking years later, Fang's brand—as well as the memory of her Focus—is now obscured and indistinct.

Serah Farron.

First entry

Added during Chapter Three, in Lake Bresha


Serah is Lightning's younger sister. Despite losing both of her parents, she lives happily enough with her older sibling. Serah's only real concern is Lightning's disapproval of her boyfriend, Snow.

However, that all changes when she encounters the fal'Cie Anima and is branded as a Pulse l'Cie.

Without ever uncovering her task, she urges the others to save Cocoon before suddenly turning to crystal. Though he cannot know for sure, Snow believes her final words to be the Focus they must complete.

Second entry

Updated after the first battle against Barthandelus


Serah is Lightning's younger sister and Snow's fiancée.

Also a Pulse l'Cie, she has gained eternal life and slumbers in crystal stasis. Snow believes their Focus is to save the world as Serah wished, but Barthandelus explains that her task was simply to gather the tools for Cocoon's destruction.

During the incident at the Euride Gorge energy plant, Dajh is made into a Sanctum l'Cie with the ability to sense power of Pulse origin. Although he discovers the fal'Cie in Bodhum, his true Focus—capturing Pulse l'Cie—is learned when he is reunited with his father and turns to crystal.

First entry

Added during Chapter Three, in Lake Bresha


Galenth Dysley is the Primarch—the human representative of the Sanctum. Acting as a bridge between the fal'Cie Eden and a citizen-elected council, he facilitates the government of Cocoon.

Until now, he has been seen as a conservative leader, never forcing the direction of the council, and always having the best interests of the people at heart. But with the discovery of the Pulse fal'Cie in Bodhum, his leadership becomes ruthless and oppressive, with the Purge policy being instigated over the span of a single night.

Second entry

Updated after the first battle against Barthandelus


Acting in the guise of a human Primarch, Galenth Dysley has concealed his true identity as the fal'Cie Barthandelus.

He reveals to Lightning and her companions that their Focus is for one of them to take on the form of Ragnarok and shatter Cocoon.

Cid Gunblade

Cid Raines.

First entry

Added at the start of Chapter Five


Cid Raines is the commander of the Wide-area Response Brigade, a military unit otherwise known as the 'Cavalry.'

Second entry

Updated after defeating Raines


Raines had been planning to overthrow fal'Cie rule, but was made into a l'Cie by Barthandelus before those plans could be put into action.

Since then, he has been a part of the fal'Cie's scheme to guide Lightning and the others through their battles with the Sanctum, and along the path to Cocoon's destruction.

However, Raines regains the will he once had as a human, and attempts to foil Barthandelus's plans by killing the l'Cie. Despite his eventual defeat, the Cavalry commander transforms into crystal.

Updated after the first battle against Barthandelus


Jihl Nabaat is a talented PSICOM officer who graduated at the head of her class.

As the supervisor in charge of Dajh's testing, she grew close to his father, Sazh. However, her kindness was simply a ruse to gain access to the boy's l'Cie ability to sense Pulse entities.

She captures Sazh and Vanille in Nautilus, using them as bait in her scheme to draw the other Pulse l'Cie out of hiding. Jihl's plans backfire when her carefully laid ambush is unable to contain the l'Cie, and Barthandelus disposes of her as he would any other tool.

First entry

Added during Chapter Three, in Lake Bresha


The chocobo chick travels in Sazh's hair. Though it has only been with Sazh for a short while, a strong bond has formed between them.

The chick has no name, as voicing the true identity of the animal might trigger ripples of destiny across Cocoon and cause a hurricane in Eden. Either that, or Sazh just hasn't thought of one yet.

Second entry

Updated in the Sunleth Waterscape


Sazh purchased this chocobo chick at a stall in Euride Gorge for his son, Dajh. However, while his attention was on the transaction, Dajh ran into the energy plant and headlong into the incident that changed him into a Sanctum l'Cie.
