    Noctis "Noct" Lucis Caelum 

"Fools set the rules in this world. Just look around. It's undeniable."

Voiced by: Tatsuhisa Suzuki

The main character, prince of Lucis who is charged with defending his kingdom and its crystal. He draws on the power of the crystal to wield an arsenal of supernatural weapons and teleport. Has a strong friendship with his True Companions.

    Stella Nox Fleuret 

"Don't worry about me. Live your own life."

Daughter of the Fleuret family from Tenebrae, she is an unwilling enemy of Noctis who possesses similar powers.

  • Anti-Villain
  • Captain Ersatz: Suspiciously resembles Aerith. The scene in the third trailer which has her looking up in the sky while the camera focuses down on her is almost an exact replica from the intro of Final Fantasy VII. And Noctis was already considered a Cloud expy.
    • Other fans consider her this to Celes. Blonde, wields a sword, and is magical. Plus Nomura has compared their situations.
    • With the white dress and blonde hair draped on her shoulders, she looks quite a bit like Namine.
  • Childhood Friends: The E3 2013 trailer implies that she and Noctis were this, even depicted Holding Hands.
  • Foil: If there's any indication, she will be this to Noctis, both literally and figuratively. It makes perfect sense why: they both are competing against each other for the crystal that Noctis' family holds. They are also shown frequently together, suggesting an important battle will occur between them. Finally, her last name "Fleuret" is the Latin root word for "foil," and she uses a rapier.
  • I See Dead People: Like Noctis she can see the lights of the dead leaving for Etro's Gate because of a Near Death Experience that is implied that she and Noctis shared.
  • Gaussian Girl: Noctis meets her at a party this way complete with a slow motion close up of her face as she turns around.
  • Keigo: Completely contrasting with the way Noct and his friends talk, Stella is very formal and polite, calling the former "Noctis-sama".
  • Lady of War: Judging from her weapon and status compared to Noctis, Stella would appear to be one.
  • Light Is Not Good: When Stella wields her rapier, a gold crest appears behind her. Note that she is one of the game's antagonists.
  • Meaningful Name: "Stella Nox" means night star, while "Fleuret" refers to her Weapon of Choice.
  • Ojou: Apparently comes from a very wealthy family, and was 'properly' brought up. This family competes against Noctis' for the Crystal.
  • Royal Rapier: Seems to be her Weapon of Choice. Her last name is also a reference to it.
  • Ship Tease: She is featured frequently with Noctis, who seems quite shy of her directness, and many fans have picked up on the allusions to Romeo and Juliet. Their meeting is said to be one predestined by the divine.
  • Stellar Name
  • Visual Pun/Don't Explain the Joke: The rapier she uses in battle.
  • Woman in White: Her white cocktail dress when Noctis meets her at the party. Flashbacks from trailers imply she wore one as a child too. She also wears a white cardigan in her normal outfit.

    Ignis Stupeo Scientia 
Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano

An old friend and staff member of Noctis grew up with the best education.

    Gladiolus "Gladio" Amicitia 
Voiced by: Kenta Miyake

Noctis's closest friend and bodyguard.

    Prompto Argentum 
Voiced by: Tetsuya Kakihara

An old school-friend of Noctis's and a frequent bad influence. He is an expert with firearms (despite them being banned) and has a playful personality.

  • Big Damn Heroes: From the 2013 gameplay; quite understated, but an example nonetheless, since Noct didn't realise he was behind him.
    Prompto: "Leave it to me!" [shoots mook in the face]
  • Bishōnen
  • Casanova Wannabe: Said to be quite the skirt-chaser.
  • Impossibly Cool Clothes: Including a leather Waistcoat of Style and Fingerless Gloves.
  • The Lancer: Seems to have the personality - cheeky, sarcastic, a bit of a wild card.
  • The Gunslinger: Prompto is the only one of Noctis's party who can manually use firearms and make use of traditional TPS mechanics.
    • Shotguns Are Just Better: In his initial appearance. Presumably, he can still wield them, but he's since been shown with a handgun for the most part.
  • Meaningful Name: Roughly translates to "quick silver", befitting a gunman.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: While the other men have yet to display any touchy-feely business, promotional material shows Prompto putting his arm round a surprised Noctis and leaping onto Gladio's back in celebration.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: Implied to be this for Noctis, at least as far as other people are concerned.
  • Youthful Freckles: Fitting since he behaves the least maturely out of the group.

    Cor Leonis 

Voiced by: Hiroki Tochi

Lord Commander of the Caelum family's Royal Guards.

    Regis Lucis Caelum 

Noctis's father and the 113th king of Lucis.

    Idola Eldercapt 

An antagonist who is emperor of the militarised state of Niflheim.

  • The Emperor: Of the power-hungry military dictator variety.
  • Evil Old Folks
  • Man in White: He was literally only known as this until his name was revealed, due to his dress code.
  • Violence Is the Only Option: The peace treaty with Lucis over the last crystal ends with Idola pulling a handgun on Regis and triggering a full invasion of the city-state.

A young mechanic who maintains the party's vehicles.
