- —Official description
Ignis Stupeo Scientia is a companion of Noctis and a playable character in Final Fantasy XV. He is a close childhood friend of Noctis, Gladiolus and Prompto, acting as a strategist for the royal family. In the original trailers, he was frequently seen driving Noctis's car.
Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Ignis follows a similar fashion style to Noctis, wearing black leather jackets. He wears glasses and has short, light brown hair swept up at the front of his hairline and green eyes.
Ignis has a composed, serious, and cool personality, something to contrast Gladiolus and Prompto. Ignis has been friends with Noctis since early childhood. He received a special education for gifted children to work as a staff officer for Noctis and acts as the understanding consultant for him.
In the 1st Production Department Premier trailer, he advises Noctis to flee the city to avoid unnecessary casualties because he is not strong enough to defeat the attacks. Noctis later asks Ignis if he has come up with a plan to exact tenfold vengeance on their enemies, to which Ignis responds that he is going to find a way to return it a hundredfold.
He wields a katana or nodachi in battle, using attacks that strike multiple times or damage multiple targets, including a Iaidō-style attack. He is also good with assist-style attacks and can toss knives at enemies.
Ignis's name is composed of three Latin words: ignis, "fire", stupeo, "to be stunned or amazed", and scientia, "knowledge". Unlike Noctis's name, Ignis's name is not a syntactically coherent Latin phrase.
