Ring-of-the-Lucii-FFXV

The Ring of the Lucii.

He who holds the Ring communes with the Lucii and commands great power.
—Lunafreya Nox Fleuret

The Ring of the Lucii (光耀の指輪, Kōyō no Yubiwa?, lit. Ring of Radiant Light) is a key item in the Final Fantasy XV Universe that appears in Final Fantasy XV and the feature film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. It symbolizes the power of the kings of Lucis, and it is handed down from generation to generation. The ring contains the collective power and wisdom of each Lucian monarch and grants its immense power only to those it deems worthy.

StoryEdit

OriginsEdit

According to legend, the Ring of the Lucii is bestowed upon the kings of Lucis by the gods of Eos. It allows its wearer to channel the power of Insomnia's Crystal.[1]

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XVEdit

XV During the fall of Insomnia, Imperial General Glauca severs the Ring of the Lucii from King Regis Lucis Caelum CXIII's hand. Ravus Nox Fleuret picks up the ring and attempts to obtain its power for himself. He is deemed unworthy and drops the ring as his left arm is severely burned. Taking the ring with him, Regis flees down a secret passageway with Nyx Ulric and Lunafreya Nox Fleuret. Once clear of Niflheim's forces, Regis gives the Ring of the Lucii to Lunafreya and asks her to give it to his son, Noctis.

Nyx Communion

Nyx communes with the Lucian kings of old after putting on the Ring of the Lucii.

In Section D of Insomnia, Nyx is attacked by one of his fellow Glaives, Luche Lazarus. The man seeks to take the Ring of the Lucii from him, and he is tricked into putting it on by Lunafreya. Deemed unworthy of the Old Wall's power, Luche is burned alive and killed. At that moment, Nyx's superior, Titus Drautos, reveals himself to be Glauca and attempts to reclaim the ring. Nyx puts it on and finds himself in another dimension, where he speaks to the deceased Lucian kings and faces their judgment. When the kings see Nyx fights for the future, they grant him their power in exchange for his life. Nyx then uses the Ring of the Lucii to engage Glauca in a climactic battle.

The Ring of the Lucii returns to Lunafreya's care after Nyx dies.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

After the clash between Titan and Leviathan levels Altissia, Noctis finds himself in a dreamlike dimension with his betrothed, Lunafreya. Transformed into his childhood self, Noctis grieves over his inability to save the Oracle. She comforts him and gives him the Ring of the Lucii before fading into the Astral Realm. Noctis awakens back in Altissia with the ring in his hand.

In Gralea, the capital of Niflheim, Noctis is forced to adorn the Ring of the Lucii when his powers cease to work. A decade later, Noctis uses the ring to commune with his ancestors before giving his life to end the Starscourge. After dying, Noctis finds himself standing before Ardyn Izunia in the afterlife, and he uses the ring to finally destroy the immortal man's spirit. His long battle finally over, Noctis vanishes in a burst of light as the Ring of the Lucii disintegrates.

Spoilers end here.

AbilitiesEdit

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XVEdit

When worn, the Ring of the Lucii sends those who are not of royal blood to another dimension. There, they converse with the Lucian kings of old and face their judgment. If the ring rejects its wearer, he is burned alive. However, if it accepts him, the wearer gains great magical power, as well as the ability to activate the Old Wall, enormous statues of the deceased Lucian kings strewn about Insomnia.

Final Fantasy XVEdit

The Ring of the Lucii offers players access to Ring Magic, a more infinite range of abilities than the grenades that can be concocted through Elemancy. One spell the Ring of the Lucii grants Noctis is Death; this enables him to drain the life-force of enemies and cause them to disintegrate. By wearing the Ring of the Lucii, Noctis can also use Holy and a new spell, Alterna.

Creation and developmentEdit

In early promotional material for Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Noctis is seen wearing a ring on his right hand. Repurposed for Final Fantasy XV, the ring was important to the game's story.[2]
