XIII-2 XIII

XIII-2 Yaschas Massif1

Fenrir seen in the sky.

Great Fenrir is the fal'Cie of the skies above. By the will of the mighty god Pulse, Fenrir ceaselessly wanders the heavenly vault, searching for the great door lost at the equinox of existence. This is the destiny of the fal'Cie Fenrir.
—Orb of Clotho Fragment

Fenrir (フェンリル, Fenriru?) is a fal'Cie that appears in Yaschas Massif 10 AF in Final Fantasy XIII-2. It is a large, cloudy, skyborne entity that eclipses the sun and casts the mountains in darkness. Its appearance in 10 AF is a paradox and Serah Farron, Mog, and Noel Kreiss are tasked with fixing this anomaly, as Fenrir's appearance was calculated to only occur in c. 200 AF.

DatalogEdit

Fenrir is an immense fal'Cie the size of a small moon. When this being appears, it begins to follow the sun's movement across the sky, resulting in an extended solar eclipse.

FragmentEdit

The Book of Haerii

This is the prophecy as told by Clotho, messenger of the otherworld.

Great Fenrir is the fal'Cie of the skies above. By the will of the mighty god Pulse, Fenrir ceaselessly wanders the heavenly vault, searching for the great door lost at the equinox of existence. This is the destiny of the fal'Cie Fenrir.

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
FFXIII-2 Eclipse

Serah and Noel looking at Eclipse in the sky of Yaschas Massif -10 AF-.

Fenrir has taken its place in front of the sun by the time Noel and Serah arrive in the Yaschas Massif at 10 AF. Fenrir's presence in the area has increased the amount of monsters inhabiting the pass, and searchlights have been constructed to protect the Academy staff examining the area.

Fenrir's presence in the Yaschas Massif is due to a paradox. According to ancient Gran Pulsian annals, it should appear 190 years later. The appearance of the fal'Cie casts shadow only at the Yaschas Massif and is attributed to a spacetime anomaly. Once Serah and Noel change history and visit Yaschas Massif in 01X AF, Fenrir has disappeared. It can be assumed that it won't appear again until 200 AF.

It is eventually revealed through the datalogs that it is searching the skies for Etro's gate per the fal'Cie god Pulse's order.

Spoilers end here.

EtymologyEdit

In Norse mythology, Fenrir is a monstrous wolf. Fenrir is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda and Heimskringla, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In both the Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, Fenrir is the father of the wolves Sköll and Hati Hróðvitnisson, is a son of Loki, and is foretold to kill the god Odin during the events of Ragnarök, but will in turn be killed by Odin's son Víðarr.

In Norse mythology, Fenrir's two children, Skoll and Hati, are supposed to devour the sun and the moon respectively. In some renditions, however, it is Fenrir himself that devours the sun and the moon.

TriviaEdit

  • The covered up sun looks reminiscent of the crystallized Cocoon.
  • Fenrir is the largest known fal'Cie in the trilogy.
