Appearance and PersonalityEdit
He has fought many l'Cie in the past and lives only to fulfill the purpose given to him by the Crystal, and any other purpose or intentions disappeared a hundred years ago.
After Class Zero defeats Qator Bashtar in the battle for Togoreth Fortress, Qator is forced to fall back, leading to Nimbus being deployed as a final resort. Suzaku's forces are ordered to fall back as Zhuyu is deployed to face Nimbus. Being the first l'Cie battle in over five centuries, the aftermath of Zhuyu and Nimbus's clash had obliterated the Fortress and all but erased it from the map.
Nimbus appears again when Class Zero infiltrates a weapons plant in the Milites capital. First, he unexpectedly appears to strangle the party leader, as a warning should they stand in his way. Following the defeat of Brionac, however, Class Zero confronts and must battle Nimbus, but he easily overpowers them. However, they are intervened by the announcement of a ceasefire, signalling the arrival of representatives from Concordia and Rubrum. Nimbus gives up and retreats.

Nimbus uses optic weapons like light rays as his weapon. From the sky, he can fire torrents of light into the ground, and penetrate targets with condensed beams of light.
Nimbus is fought during the last mission of Chapter 3. At Level 142, it is impossible to win this fight. Even should you whittle his health to 1%, it will stay there until he tires of the fight. Although the battle will end normally if all party members are KO'ed, it is also possible to avoid Nimbus's attacks for three minutes until the battle ends. This strategy is required to obtain an S rank for the mission.
Nimbus appears in the Final Fantasy Trading Card Game.
"Nimbus" is a Latin word meaning "cloud". It is also a name for the cloud's type from which it rains. This could be a reference to his power, as he is often seen projecting penetrating rays to decimate his opponents in the battlefield.
- Nimbus shares his Japanese voice actor with Tseng from the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII and Seymour Guado, Jassu, Zanar, and the Hypello race from Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2.
