The metropolis is ruled by the Order, an organization devout to their god, Bhunivelze. The residents spend their days absorbing the teachings of this sacred deity. Metal is a common material found in the various structures of this gothically tinged city. Traveling bags and other ornaments are scattered around, depicting a charming yet surreal atmosphere. As the day draws to an end, the city's serenity is no more. Monsters and other creatures of the night prowl the area, leaving Lightning to fend for her life.
- —Official description
Luxerion, the Divine City of Light (光都ルクセリオ, Kouto Rukuserio?) is one of the main locations in Nova Chrysalia in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. A religious organization known as the Order of Salvation is in charge of keeping the peace. The Order worships the deity Bhunivelze, and spreads his teachings to the populace praying for the doomed world's salvation. Snow's chapter in Final Fantasy XIII: Reminiscence -tracer of memories- reveals Luxerion was the first city built on Nova Chrysalia by the fal'Cie Pandaemonium, which later came to reside in Yusnaan.
After the formation of Nova Chrysalia, Hope Estheim, Snow Villiers, and Noel Kreiss made a pact to find a way to save the decaying world and established Luxerion before Snow became the patron of Yusnaan. When Hope disappeared 331 years after Nova Chrysalia's formation, it left a power vacuum the Order of Salvation exploited. Noel, burdened by guilt, took residence in the rundown area of Luxerion, the Warren, and came to be known as the vigilante "Shadow Hunter". (more...)
Render of the Hero's Blade from Final Fantasy XII. A piece of Dummied Content, the Hero's Blade is a one-handed sword with an attack power of 15. It has a unique menu image and makes a unique sound when it strikes enemies.
Though the sword is not obtainable as equipment, it does appear in the game's introductory scene when King Raminas grants the sword to Prince Rasler, and Rasler's official CG render holds the blade in its scabbard. Ashe's promotional poster also depicts her holding the Hero's Blade. It is possible the sword had some sort of plot significance that was cut, or that Ashe would take up Rasler's sword as her own in her fight against the Empire. Given the sword's low attack power, it would likely have been acquired early in the game, possibly as Ashe's initial equip when she joined the party.
