—Description from Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Knight of Etro (女神の騎士, Megami no Kishi?, lit. Knight of the Goddess) is a recurring job class in the Final Fantasy series. It first appears in Final Fantasy XIII-2 and is worn by Lightning, who receives it from the goddess Etro in Valhalla.

ProfileEdit

Knight of Etro resembles the silver armor of a knight; a spike appears at the center of the chestplate and has a gold bird mounted on it where her l'Cie brand used to be. Spikes also appear on Knight of Etro's elbows and knees. A sash of white feathers covers the wearer's left hip. The white feathers symbolize the presence of goddess Etro and divinity.

In terms of gameplay, Knight of Etro is a versatile job.

In Mobius Final Fantasy, Wol's version of Knight of Etro gives him black leggings.

FFXIII-2 Lightning Artwork

Concept artwork of Knight of Etro.

Lightning wears Knight of Etro in the prologue and in the DLC scenario "Lightning's Story: Requiem of the Goddess." In the latter, it grants Lightning access to six Paradigm roles: Paladin, a version of Commando; Shaman, a version of Ravager that focuses on wind-attributed physical attacks; Mage, a version of Ravager that focuses on lightning-attributed spells; Knight, a version of Sentinel; Conjurer, a version of Synergist; and Sorcerer, a version of Saboteur.

If Lightning defeats Chaos Bahamut at the end of "Lightning's Story: Requiem of the Goddess" with a score of five stars, so long is her level is 9 or lower, she will be unlocked in the Paradigm Pack. As a "tamed" ally, Lightning wears Knight of Etro and uses the "Legion of One" Feral Link. Enemies Lightning defeats occasionally burst into white feathers when they transform into crystals.

Lightning is the only "monster" to possess the Uncapped Damage passive ability; this allows her to deal more than 99,999 damage. Additionally, Lightning has access to Immovable MAX, an ability that greatly increases her resistance to interruption. Lightning excels at attacking and boasts a high spell-casting speed; this compensates for her low Strength and Magic stats. The passive abilities Armor Breaker and Mind Piercer allow Lightning to deal great damage to enemies in any situation.
