|Japanese voice actor||Mamoru Miyano|
|Final Fantasy XV Character|
- “A childhood friend of Noctis who grew up receiving gifted education befitting a staff officer. He understands Noctis well and is his confidant.”
- —Official description
He is Noctis's close childhood friend alongside Gladiolus and Prompto, acting as a strategist for the royal family. He is the group's driver, taking the wheel of the party's car unless the player wants to drive manually as Noctis.
Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Ignis wears a purple and black patterned dress shirt with his black suit and black shiny shoes. 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 attackers. 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.
Ignis accompanies Noctis and his friends on a road trip to Altissia where they are to meet a woman named Luna. Ignis drives the car through the Duscae region when they spot a giant Adamantoise as well as an astral shard on the side of the road.
Ignis wields a katana or nodachi in battle, using attacks that strike multiple times or damage multiple targets, including a Iaidō-style attack. He is good with assist-style attacks and can toss knives at enemies.
Creation and DevelopmentEdit
Ignis, like the other party members, has gone through a design overhaul. The original footage of him had him wearing a white dress shirt under a jacket, jeans and a dogtag pendant. This outfit was changed to a purple and black animal print dress shirt worn with a suit, and he no longer wears a pendant. He's also donned a pair of uniquely styled blue gloves.
Ignis's name is composed of three Latin words.Ignis means "fire" in Latin.. Stupeo means "to be stunned or amazed" in Latin. Scientia means "knowledge" in Latin. Unlike Noctis's name, Ignis's name is not a syntactically coherent Latin phrase.
