A fierce woman with a feral beauty. Though quarrelsome and aggressive, Fang will do anything to protect the ones she loves, and would gladly lay down her own life to protect her childhood friend Vanille.
Fang is a Pulse l'Cie, whose combat role is Physical Attack.
Fang fills the role of a typical Dragoon with her high physical stats and top-ranked Speed. This being the case, it may very well be a toss-up between her and longtime Dragoon stalwart Kain for a spot on the player's fighting party, as there is yet to be a dungeon requiring the use of multiple Dragoons. Gender does not seem to play into statistical balance as one may be inclined to think; where a maxed-out Kain has just over 4,800 HP, Fang may break 5,000 when maxed, a rare feat.
Her default Soul Break is Adrenaline which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment temporarily raises the user's Attack. The spear Glaive (XIII) allows Fang to use Pulsar Burst which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment deals five ranged physical attacks to random targets, each hit dealing 102% damage potency of a conventional attack totaling to 510% damage potency, and inflicting Blind with 21% accuracy for 60 seconds.
She can equip accessories.
Fang appears as a vision obtainable through summoning. Her job is l'Cie. Her trust mastery reward is Equip Spear. She possesses the special abilities Jump, HP +10%, Flamestrike, Froststrike, Counter-Strike, Beast-Killer, ATK +20%, High Jump, Area Blast, Lady Luck and Spear Master. She possesses the magic, Dispel. She can exclusively use the Calamity Spear and the special abilities Attacker and Defender. Her limit burst is Highwind.
- No. 283: "A woman who appears in the tales of a world where the gods toy with humanity's fate. Although Fang was one of the dreaded l'Cie so feared by the people of Cocoon, she was somehow cooperating with their military forces. It was heard that she approached them in hopes of finding her missing childhood friend. Fang was a candid and sisterly warrior, who also enjoyed challenging formidable opponents to the death. However, she also had a tender heart; most tender of all if ever she witnessed her friends falling prey to their own fears."
- No. 284: "A woman who appears in the tales of a world where the gods toy with humanity's fate. Fang was born and raised in Gran Pulse, a cursed place despised by the people of Cocoon. Nevertheless, she decided to work with a section of Cocoon's military forces in hopes of finding her missing childhood friend, Vanille. Her candor and amiability allowed her to befriend the l'Cie of Cocoon, though nothing could surpass the sisterly bond she shared with Vanille. It also seemed, unfortunately, that Fang was missing some of her memories."
- No. 285: "A woman who appears in the tales of a world where the gods toy with humanity's fate. Fang was a fearless, even audacious lance wielder—some might say a daredevil. Her tale tells that she became a l'Cie to protect her home world of Gran Pulse from an attack by the floating continent of Cocoon; however, her recollection of the incident remained sketchy. What could never be in doubt, however, was her enduring affection for her friend Vanille; a love unequaled, having spent half a lifetime with her."
