6★ A woman who appears in the tales of a world where the gods toy with humanity's fate. Lightning chose to fight against the gods' servants. the fal'Cie, to save her sister Serah. Unfortunately, this resulted in Lightning herself being cursed as a "l'Cie." The l'Cie were believed to be the enemies of peace; thus Lightning and her fellow l'Cie came to be persecuted by various enemies. Although not always in agreement, the l'Cie formed strong bonds with one another, seeking to fulfill their Focus in defiance of the gods.

Fusion[edit | edit source]

5★ I don't take orders from fal'Cie.
How I live is up to me.
6★ It's not a question of can or can't.
There are some things in life you just do.

Awakening[edit | edit source]

6★ Destroying the world isn't salvation.
I'll keep fighting until the end.
This power will give me the strength.

Summon[edit | edit source]

5★ Keep your eyes in front.
I'll watch the rear.
6★ Fighting without hope is no way to live.
It's just a way to die.
Now, show me the hope you've found.

Trust Mastery[edit | edit source]

When it looks like there's no hope left, we look harder until we find some.
Always have, always will.
