Imperial Province of Tenebrae
Princess/Lady Lunafreya "Luna" Nox Fleuret
Voiced by: Rina Kitagawa (Japanese, XV, Brotherhood), Amy Shiels (English, XV); Shiori Kutsuna (Japanese, Kingsglaive), Lena Headey (English, Kingsglaive); Liliana Chomsky as a child (English)
Appears in: Final Fantasy XV | Episode Ignis | Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV
Heiress to the Royal House of Fleuret—the former ruling family of Tenebrae (now a semi-autonomous province within the Empire)—and one of Noctis's childhood friends. She became Oracle upon the death of her mother, Queen Sylva. As per the terms of the peace treaty between Lucis and Niflheim, a marriage is arranged between her and Noct, with her traveling to Insomnia to witness the treaty-signing.
Luna is a heavily re-imagined version of Stella Nox Fleuret, the original Anti-Villain female lead of Final Fantasy Versus XIII. The re-imagining came about during the game's rebranding and subsequent shifting of the story focus, which led to the role of female lead being significantly altered.
- 100% Adoration Rating: A perk of being an Oracle is that nearly everyone loves her.
- Achilles' Heel: Without her trident, Luna is powerless and cannot use magic.
- Action Survivor: She survives the devastating attack on Insomnia and goes to seek out Noctis.
- Ancestral Weapon: The Trident of the Oracle is a very powerful Ancient Artifact passed down the Fleuret family from one Oracle to the next, in fact without their trident the Oracles are all but powerless. It is the only one of the Royal Arms that Noctis obtains not to belong to a Lucian King or Queen.
- Anime Hair: A subversion. Her hairstyle is doable in real-life (it was actually designed by a professional hair stylist hired by Square), but is extremely intricate and complex. It's actually very similar to Shiva's, which implies that more likely than not Gentiana does her hair.
- Arranged Marriage: As part of the peace treaty between Lucis and Niflheim, she is to marry Noct. But it turns out that it was a ruse by Niflheim to steal Lucis's Power Crystal.
- Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: She becomes one with the spirit realm after her death and is eventually joined by Noctis in the post-credits stinger.
- Advertised Extra: She's billed as the game's main heroine, and side materials such as Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV and the Brotherhood anime set her up to be a prominent figure, but she only appears for roughly half an hour of the 30+ hour game, and even then very little of it is spent interacting with the main heroes and/or alive. Especially egregious in the Royal Edition, where she appears on the cover of the game, but her added screentime amounts to a brief cutscene of her spirit appearing to provide a Deus ex Machina to help the heroes get past a magic barrier, with little in the way of new insight on the character.
- Badass Boast:(To Leviathan) "I vow—the King will prove himself worthy!"
"This I solemnly vow, upon my honor as Oracle: I will not rest until the Darkness has been banished from our world, and the Light restored!"
- Barrier Maiden: As an Oracle, her powers are the only thing preventing the world from being plunged into eternal darkness. Appropriately after she is killed by Ardyn, the world slowly descends into the The Night That Never Ends.
- Beneath the Mask: For a single cutscene, Luna lets her composure slip to Ravus that she is terrified her failing health will soon render her unable to fulfill her duty and make her a burden.
- Big Damn Heroes: In the Royal Edition, she appears in spirit form to call upon the Astrals to destroy a swarm of incoming demons and break down the wall blocking the group's path to Ardyn.
- Came Back Wrong: In the Dawn of the Future novel, Lunafreya is revived by Bahamut. Normally, this would be all well and good...except she's been given the same abilities as Ardyn.
- Cast from Lifespan: Forging a covenant with the Six is a debilitating process to the Oracle to the point of putting Luna on death's door.
- Childhood Friends: Noctis once visited her homeland of Tenebrae when he was being treated for his injuries after being attacked by a Marilith, there she and Noctis grew close until the Empire's invasion separated them.
- Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Her likeness in Kingsglaive is based on Russian model Sonya Maltceva, though different voice actresses play her.
- Cosmic Keystone: As the Oracle she is the only person capable of healing people of the Starscourge affliction. It's for this reason that Ardyn kills her, removing the only person capable of holding the Starscourge from blighting all of Eos and plunging the world into The Night That Never Ends.
- Determinator: She will see to it that Noctis ascends and receives the power that is rightfully his, and absolutely nothing will stop her. Not General Glauca, not a broken-down airship, not even Leviathan, and certainly not Ardyn gutting her.
- Deuteragonist: Word of God established that Luna is the "keystone" that connects the entire Final Fantasy XV Universe; she is the only character that has a leading role in all installments. The main story depicts not only Noct's journey, but hers as well.Fifteen years ago... Their journey began.
- The Exile: After the invasion of Insomnia, Luna went into self-imposed exile to hide from Niflheim.
- Fallen Princess: Her family was stripped of its title but she retains some authority within her country, not as its former princess, but as the Oracle.
- The Farmer and the Viper: She tries to comfort Ardyn, apparently believing that he is not evil of his own free will. He backhands her in response.
- Fearless Fool: She's a strong-willed person who, by her own words, does not fear death, though in Kingsglaive Nyx rolls his eyes at her no less than three times during the mission to retrieve her from a Niflheim warship, as he ends up having to prevent her from doing anything reckless.
- Forced to Watch: The death of Regis at Glauca's hands in Kingsglaive. All she can do is stare as the king of Lucis gets Impaled with Extreme Prejudice.
- Gaussian Girl: She's presented this way in the TGS 2014 trailer after the boys bring her up, complete with hazy motes of light around her.
- Gender-Restricted Ability: The position of Oracle is passed only down to the women of the Fleuret family, unlike the power of the Caelums, which has been passed down through Kings and Queens. That said, the males still apparently do receive bits and pieces of an Oracle's power, like Ravus's Super Strength—just not the entire package, like the healing or the ability to call upon and communicate with Astrals.
- Gold and White Are Divine: Her primary color scheme is white, shes fair skinned, blond haired and as benevolent as they get. Radiates a heavenly gold aura when using her powers as an oracle, has a very divine appearance with angelic beauty and communes with the gods to help Noctis save the world even though using her powers is causing her body to fail.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Luna has blonde hair and has an affable nature.
- Heroes Love Dogs: Luna has two dogs, the black furred Umbra and the white furred Pryna.
- Heroic BSoD: As Luna's body increasingly weakens, she briefly abandons her duty as Oracle and asks Ravus to take the Ring to Noctis in her place.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Luna uses the remaining power she has to help Noctis fight Leviathan and heal him when she could have saved herself from the wound she received from being stabbed by Ardyn.
- High Priest: Or "Priestess" in her case. The Oracle is a major religious authority and because of this, the Empire cannot fully assimilate Tenebrae without risking civil unrest from the rest of the world.
- I Choose to Stay: She had an opportunity to escape Tenebrae as it was being conquered, but ran back to be with her brother.
- Insecure Love Interest: Luna fears that she "has nothing to offer" Noctis other than her role as Oracle. This is insecurity rather than reality - she has the compassion of a saint, a will of pure steel, and the courage to stand up to an enraged Jerkass God who tries to kill her and Noctis. She is also definitely in the running for most beautiful woman in all of Eos.
- In-Series Nickname: A lot of the people who know her personally, including Noct and his friends, call her "Luna" instead of her full name of Lunafreya. Meta-wise, she's also usually referred to as "Luna" by the development staff.
- Keigo: Completely contrasting with the way Noct and his friends talk, what we've heard of Luna is (like Stella) very formal and polite. She even addresses Noct as "Noctis-sama", even though they've known each other since childhood!
- Last of His Kind: She's the last of the Oracles.
- Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Downplayed.The light feminine to Gentiana's dark feminine. Luna is an all loving heroine, wears white, is kind, has angelic beauty and glows with a heavenly aura. Gentiana wears dark colors, is mysterious and somewhat aloof, and her beauty looks like something you'd expect from a Lady of Black Magic to contrast with Luna's White Magician Girl look.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Personality-wise Masculine Girl to Noctiss Feminine Boy. When comparing the personalities of Noctis and Lunafreya, Tabata referred to Noctis as the weaker of the two, with Luna being the stronger one. She has traits of being the alpha in their relationship since she's proactive, being more likely to create or control a situation by causing something to happen, is resolved to see her duties through no matter what, in spite of the numerous tragedies she has endured all from a young age, largely by herself and comes across as more fit and ready to lead a country in addition to being strong willed and independent. In contrast Noctis is shy, indecisive in stressful situations, faint of heart with his duties, needs the support of others in order to cope with tragic events, needs to grow more before being ready to lead a nation, and responds to critical events rather than creating them.
- Meaningful Name: "Lunafreya" is a Portmanteau of the Latin word for moon and the Norse goddess of the same name, "Nox" means night, while "Fleuret" refers to her predecessor's Weapon of Choice.
- In the Japanese version, frena is the plural of the Latin frenum ("bridle").
- The Mentor: Being the older of the two, Luna was the one who told Noctis about their roles as The Chosen Ones. The "Omen" trailer intercuts dialogue of them reassuring each other with a scene of a crazed older Noctis killing her. Though in the game, it turns out that Ardyn is the one to kill her.
- Mentor Occupational Hazard: Years after telling Noctis about their roles as The Chosen Ones, she is tragically killed by Ardyn.
- Minor Major Character: While she plays an important role in the universe's lore and plot, her actual screentime clocks in at roughly half an hour of screentime and whatever relevance she has to the story is communicated almost entirely via exposition and third-hand accounts.
- Missing Mom: Her mother, Queen Sylva, died during Niflheim's invasion of Tenebrae in Kingsglaive.
- Mystical Waif: Even as a child she spoke quite eloquently and seriously about the Oracle and King's duties.
- Nerves of Steel: She is definitely not a woman easily shaken.
- Throughout most of Kingsglaive, she is nearly killed many times by monsters, enemy soldiers, and other random debris and explosions from being in the middle of a massive war, and still manages to put up a stoic and professional demeanor.
- After concluding her meeting with Camelia in Altissia, several Imperial magitek troopers rush in and surround her, holding her at gunpoint. From the moment they enter she doesn't look at them or even acknowledge their presence — she simply sits in thought for a moment, then stands and walks out of the room with her eyes forward, pushing the barrels of their guns out of her way.
- In the main game, she stares down Leviathan and pulls a What the Hell, Hero? on it when it initially resists the idea of the covenant. Even as Leviathan sprays her and lashes out at her to make her fall and damage the platform she's on, she gets back up and doesn't lose her resolve. During the confrontation she summons the power of the Kings of Lucis to aid Noctis in combating Leviathan, summons Titan to defend him when he runs out of steam, and then shields Noct with her own body as the two Astrals fight, and she does all this while bleeding out from Ardyn stabbing her in the gut.
- Never Be Hurt Again: Whatever skills or reputation she's gained over the years, the mooks holding her at gunpoint aren't quite as eager to attack her as the one in her flashback. It is also possible that this is due to her brother—who presumably still cares for her—working for the Empire.
- Nice Girl: Said to care for everyone. Best exemplified in Episode 2 of Brotherhood; once she learns that Prompto rescued and took care of one of her puppies, she has Gentiana look him up and personally writes a letter to thank him. Unfortunately, she mistakes Prompto for one of Noctis's friends (she had lent the puppy to him) — fortunately, that mistake is what drives Prompto to change and actually befriend Noctis.
- Not Afraid to Die: Says this several times in Kingsglaive; what she fears most is being unable to do anything despite having power.
- Not Too Dead to Save the Day: An additional cutscene in the Royal Edition has her spirit and Gentiana assisting the party by using all the summons at once to destroy the shield of Insomnia and the monsters nearby.
- Odd Friendship: Due to her status as the Oracle, and her disposition, absolutely everyone adores her, leading to a few instances of this:
- She's a childhood friend of Noctis, who as a kid was often moody and quiet. Nowadays, he's a warrior-prince-slacker who loves fishing and video games. His bros often snark that she's too good for him.
- Her closest friend is Gentiana, a divine being. It's hilarious at how nonplussed Noctis is when he mentions that fact since he's casually known her as a child himself, while the others can only stand in amazement.
- Ojou: Like Stella before her, Luna comes from a very prestigious family (of Royal Blood, in fact), and is usually shown as quite fancy and has known Noct for a long time. Her classiness doesn't seem to help her much during the invasion of Insomnia, alas.
- Passive-Aggressive Kombat: In response to Leviathan's callousness, Luna basically says that a merciless god is not worth worshiping.
- Prongs of Poseidon: The Trident of the Oracle, which was gifted to the first Oracle by Bahamut, if Cosmogony is to be believed.
- Proper Lady: As befitting one born into royalty.
- Secretly Dying: She says her flesh was starting to fail her and in a private scene with Ravus he warns her that if she keeps performing her duties as Oracle, she will die however it appears she successfully kept this a secret from the public as well as from Regis and Noctis.
- She's Got Legs: The side of her dress tears all the way up to her hip as she faces off against Leviathan, showing that she has nice legs◊.
- Shut Up, Hannibal!: It's right there in her quote; in response to Leviathan's rant against mankind, Luna rips into Leviathan something good, telling the Astral that she should be the one submitting to the King, not the other way around.
- Silk Hiding Steel: She's a prim and proper lady, but she's courageous and unafraid to use her wiles and head into the fray directly to do what she must.
- Stellar Name: Not quite literally Stella anymore, but "Luna" is still Latin for the moon.
- Stuffed into the Fridge: Lunafreya is built up as a very important character but doesn't end up have much of a role in the story except to get killed, because her death is the major contribution she makes to the plot. It serves as Ardyn's Moral Event Horizon, sends Noctis into a depression, causes the Starscourge to run rampant without her to heal it, and marks the point the game's story and tone shift severely.
- Summon Magic: Titan heeds Luna's call to create dams of earth to protect Noctis and the city when combating Leviathan.
- Super Strength: It's said that Oracles are by far physically stronger than ordinary humans. While Luna's not a straight-up fighter like Aranea, she does display a few traits of this, such as essentially tanking Leviathan's attacks with little damage, and even managing to heal Noctis after Ardyn gutted her, though this ultimately ends up killing her.
- Talented Princess, Regular Guy: Prompto and Gladio lampshade that Noctis and Luna could have become this trope, if he had stopped working out and let himself go, making jovial comments like She could have done better or What does she see in him?
- Together in Death: Reunites with Noctis in the afterlife.
- Too Good for This Sinful Earth: She's easily the purest soul in the game, wanting nothing more than to help people, even the likes of Ardyn. So of course he's the one who ends up killing her just because he could, and because it helps him in his plan to turn the entire world into an absolute nightmare.
- Took a Level in Badass: In Kingsglaive, she doesn't have her trident and thus had no magic. While she pulled her weight as best as she could, she still had to rely primarily on Nyx. In the main game, not only is she capable of enough magic to blast back a goddess trying to eat her, but she also gives Noctis the power up he needs to take on Leviathan, despite suffering from a fatal wound.
- Tragic Hero: Luna knows that she and Noctis must die for the light to return. She fights anyway.
- Unflinching Walk: After the MT's enter her room in Altissia in order to intimidate her, Luna brushes aside their gun barrels and does this to head to the altar to complete the Covenant anyway.
- White Magic: Luna's magic is divine in origin, granted only to a single woman of her bloodline at one time; upon the Oracle's death her successor will go through a ceremony to become the new Oracle and gain their powers. These powers are typically used for healing and cleansing the Starscourge and communing with the Gods, although she does have magic defined for combat as seen with her scuffle with Leviathan.
- The Woman Wearing the Queenly Mask: While talking with Camelia, Luna is quiet and subdued because she knows how destructive Leviathan might be. She shows nothing of this to the soldiers who come to threaten her minutes later, or to Altissa's panicked populace.Gentiana: (reassuring Luna) It was not the Oracle who assuaged [Regis and Noctis's] fears. But the girl... she holds the true power.
- Woman in White: To help contrast her Color Motif from Noctis's, she is generally dressed in white.
- You Are Worth Hell: Luna puts herself through a lot of hardship, thinking only of her duty to support Noctis and does everything she can to help him even at the cost of her own life.
- You Can't Fight Fate: Although her death is desperate and painful, Luna is able to take some comfort in the fact that in the long run, the darkness will be defeated.
- You See, I'm Dying: Lunas body was failing and wasnt going to last much longer. Ravus was aware of this and expressed his concern for her.
Voiced by: Sayaka Kinoshita (Japanese), Renee Faia (English)
Appears in: Final Fantasy XV | Comrades | Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV
The High Messenger of the Gods, and Luna's counterpart and attendant.
- Art Shift: In the original Versus XIII concept, Gentiana had a slightly different design - her outfit was slightly more leaned towards an Eastern aesthetic (her current dress is a mix of Japanese and Middle European), her leggings didn't have enormous heels and only instead bared her toes and heels, she carried around a giant sword and she wore red-framed glasses, though she still kept her eyes closed.
- Ascended Extra: In the original concept for Versus XIII, Gentiana's role was that of a mediator between Tenebrae and Niflheim, as well as being Stella's bodyguard and attendant. In XV, she got something of a godly promotion.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Don't be fooled by her seemingly delicate appearance and demeanor. She turns out to be a goddess in human form who manages to effortlessly defeat two of the most powerful and dangerous characters in the plot: the immortal Big Bad Ardyn (though his defeat is temporary) and the resident Physical God Ifrit.
- The Comically Serious: She uses her mysterious power to appear and disappear at will to photobomb Prompto every so often.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Calling her encounters with Ardyn and Ifrit "fights" would be generous at best...to them.
- Eyes Always Shut: She rarely opens her eyes, to help illustrate she's not quite human. She only opens them when she has something very important to say.
- Funny Background Event: She occasionally pops up in Prompto's photos without the guys even noticing it.
- Hime Cut: As befitting of a noble retainer.
- An Ice Person: She's the human form of Shiva, the astral of ice
- Kiss of Death: Plants it on Ifrit.
- Lady-in-Waiting: To Luna.
- Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Downplayed.The dark feminine to Luna's light feminine. Luna is an all loving heroine, wears white, is kind, has angelic beauty and glows with a heavenly aura. Gentiana wears dark colors, is mysterious and somewhat aloof, and her beauty looks like something you'd expect from a Lady of Black Magic to contrast with Luna's White Magician Girl look. Fittingly, Gentiana's dominion over ice magic (and role as the human form of a death goddess) actually does make her effectively the truest Black Mage of the setting.
- Me's a Crowd: As Shiva, she can make many duplicates of herself.
- Meaningful Name: Her name is a reference to the species of flower.
- Ms. Fanservice: She would normally avert this trope, given that she wears a very conservative outfit that covers her entire body (save for her cleavage). With that said, her true form as Shiva (one of the biggest fanservice providers in the series) on the other hand features the most revealing outfit for Shiva to date.
- Nice Girl: While a bit cryptic, she's very kind and sweet. She even has a slightly mischievous side to her, as she seems to love photobombing Prompto's snapshots.
- Off Hand Backhand: Gentiana does this to Ardyn in the form of an Indirect Kiss flash freezing him.
- Offscreen Teleportation: She does this, spooking the party, at one point, there is even an achievement for getting a photograph of her when the party never knew she was there.
- One-Hit KO: Quite fond of these. As noted above, she tends to decimate her foes before a fight can even start.
- Running Gag: Prompto's (and by extension the entire group's) increasingly flabbergasted banter on how she keeps showing up in their photos without them noticing before. It gets to a point where Prompto actually readies himself for it, and still gets surprised.
- Shipper on Deck: She's pleased to see the Oracle and the future King to have already grown as such close friends on the very day they meet. She's also very happy for Luna when she receives her wedding dress.
- Shut Up, Hannibal!: On his way to Niflheim's capital, Noctis gets taunted yet again by Ardyn, only for Gentiana to step in and put a finger on the latter's lip as a sign to shut it. Said touch freezes Ardyn instantly, and Noctis later shatters the body.
- Team Chef: She randomly shows up in Comrades to cook for your party. And out of all the godly, divine things one can expect, she makes you a... traditional Japanese lunchbox!
- What the Hell Is That Accent?: She has a very gentle and lovely voice, but her accent is notably out of place in Eos, where the common accents are either usually Northern-American or Received Pronunciation, with the occasional Cockney and Deep South. She's a Messenger of the Gods, and as the Astrals speak a very alien language perhaps this makes sense.
- When She Smiles: She's usually very serious, but when she does smile she's quite lovely. Happens now and again in Prompto's photos.
- Yamato Nadeshiko: Invokes the image of the proper Japanese lady, especially in terms of her overall appearance, outfit, wisdom, and quiet dedication to Lunafreya.
Queen Sylva Via Fleuret
Voiced by: Wendee Lee (English)
Appears in: Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV
Queen of Tenebrae and the previous Oracle, and the mother of Lunafreya and Ravus.
- Meaningful Name: Sylva is derived from the Latin name Sylvia ("from the forest"), and Via is Latin for "method" or "manner".
- Missing Mom: She was killed in the Niflheim invasion of Fenestala Manor, the ancestral home of the Oracle.
- Strong Family Resemblance: It's pretty clear where Luna and Ravus got their looks from.
- Taking the Bullet: She takes a Magitek trooper's flamethrower head-on to protect Ravus.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: She appears onscreen for all of one minute and speaks all of one word before she is murdered by Glauca.
Aera Mirus Fleuret
Voiced by: Saori Seto (Japanese), Julie Nathanson (English)
Appears in: Episode Ardyn | Episode Ardyn: Prologue
The first Oracle of Eos, and Lunafreya's ancestor 2000 years removed. She was Ardyn's fiancée and was tasked with announcing the chosen first King by the will of the Astrals.
- Adventurer Archaeologist: Despite being the Oracle, she very much preferred archaeology and exploring. She was endlessly curious about ancient civilizations that came before them.
- Ambiguous Situation: How much she knew about Ardyn's true fate - and whether she truly betrayed him - are left intentionally vague. Her actions in the animated prologue present her as confused by Somnus declaring himself king and dying to protect Ardyn; meanwhile in Episode Ardyn, an illusion of her revealed info Ardyn was never privy to (informing Somnus of the Gods' decision to make Ardyn king) and apologizing for her mistake. Compounding the issue further: at the end of the DLC, Bahamut words things in a way that makes her out to be manipulative and evil, but the version of her used to torment Ardyn when he resists fate speaks in unison with Bahamut, implying that Bahamut is deceiving Ardyn into believing she was plotting against him all along and using her image to twist the knife. Regardless of which is true, Ardyn has crossed so far over the Despair Event Horizon he doesn't care anymore.
- Beneath the Mask: To the people, she always came off as stoic and composed. In front of Ardyn however, she showed off her more adventurous and Adorkable side. She never minced words with him and loved exploring and archaeology.
- Childhood Friends: She's known Ardyn and Somnus since they were little, but it was always Ardyn she loved.
- Gold and White Are Divine: Like Lunafreya and Sylva, her primary color motif is gold and white.
- Heroic Sacrifice: She jumped in front of Ardyn to save him from Somnus's killing blow, dying in his arms. Unfortunately, it was a Senseless Sacrifice as Somnus still ultimately got what he wanted.
- Identical Grandson: Her descendant Lunafreya is the spitting image of her. It's this resemblance that gives Ardyn the idea to have Luna and Noct (Somnus's descendant) betrothed—so that he could make Noct experience the same pain he did. Given the revelation at the end of Episode Ardyn, it's also why he hits her in anger when she offers him solace.
- Keigo: Publicly. In private, she is far more blunt.
- The Lost Lenore: Her death at Somnus's hands is a major driving force behind Ardyn's revenge.
- Meaningful Name: Aera is the Japanese transliteration of Eir, the Norse goddess of healing; appropriate, given her role as Oracle, while mirus is Latin for "wonderful".
- The Narrator: Of Episode Ardyn and its prologue.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: By her own admission, her revealing to Somnus of Ardyn being the chosen king led to Somnus's betrayal, her death and Ardyn's descent into villainy. Of course this was in a hallucination Ardyn had, and the ambiguity of the situation leaves it unclear if it was true or that Somnus and Aera both knew that Ardyn was fated to become a sacrifice.
Hammerhead Service Station
Voiced by: Nobuyuki Katsube (Japanese), Jack Angel (English)
Appears in: Final Fantasy XV | Comrades | A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV
The owner of the Hammerhead service station that maintains Noctis's car, the Regalia, and an old comrade-in-arms of King Regis and Cor.
- Alliterative Name: Pronunciation-wise.
- Berserk Button: Do not ask him where he got the name "Hammerhead" from.
- Brutal Honesty: He has no problem speaking exactly whats on his mind unfiltered to people and within seconds of meeting him, bluntly expressed his low opinion of Noctis to his face, even though he had only just met him. It helps that he was friends with Noctis's father, Regis, when they were young, close enough to call him the nickname "Reggie" instead of using formalities.
- Deep South: In the English version, Cid sports an American Southern accent.
- Intergenerational Friendship: Was close friends with Regis, who was 27 years his junior.
- The Gunslinger: When Cid fought alongside Regis, he favored firearms as his weapon of choice.
- Legacy Character: Cid is now a grandfather.
- Meaningful Name: His name is basically Spanish and Greek for "Master of Wisdom".
- Mythology Gag:
- Retired Badass: He fought in the wars against Niflheim in his youth, alongside Regis, Cor and Clarus in fact.
- Southern-Fried Genius: He's a blacksmith and a mechanic, who sports a Southern accent.
- The Nicknamer: Calls Regis "Reggie".
- Ultimate Blacksmith: After retiring and leaving the garage to Cindy, he takes up upgrading Noctis's mechanical weapons and machines to stave off boredom; it's through this that you get the Ultima Blade.
- We Used to Be Friends: Cid considers Regis a friend now, but there was a time when Cid and Regis had a disagreement and became estranged from one another. While they did patch things up later, Cid never saw Regis again in person, which he regrets upon hearing of Regis' death. While the reason why they argued is unknown, Cid hints that it was due to Regis not confiding with his friends about his problems.
Voiced by: Yu Shimamura (Japanese), Erin Matthews (English)
Appears in: Final Fantasy XV | Comrades
Cid's granddaughter, she assists him with his business and has the most contact with the group when they first meet.
- Action Survivor: Talcott implies that she's at least this in the World of Ruin, if not a full-fledged fighter in her own right, but that she often asks for help from other Hunters on her bigger assignments.
- Badass Adorable: She is the Head Mechanic of Hammerhead, being very skilled at fixing cars - and later, implied to have some Action Survivor chops - and looks quite cute as well.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her work uniform exposes her stomach, being a bikini and a small, partially zipped jacket.
- The Cutie: Despite her sexy appearance, she is an adorable sweetie.
- Deep South: As with her grandfather, she sports an American Southern accent in the English version.
- Dub Name Change: While her name is Cidney in the Japanese version (to better keep in line with her being this game's Cid), English-speaking versions changed it to Cindy for what was initially thought to be "reasons". In reality, it's due to the fact that there's an actual Cid in the game, and the localization staff apparently thought "Cidney" was just this side of too punny for a major member of the supporting cast.
- Dude Magnet: As mentioned below, the guys have the hots for her.
- Goggles Do Nothing: Inverted; she's a mechanic.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She has blond hair and is a quite friendly mechanic.
- Legacy Character: Cid has been an old man, a bishonen, a hunk, and finally a girl! Well, okay, there's also her granddad, who's the actual Cid, but close enough.
- Married to the Job: Post Time Skip, she remains a mechanic, and according to Talcott turned down all of Prompto's attempts at flirting. That being said...
- Maybe Ever After: In the Royal Edition, Noctis can ask Prompto if things ever worked out between him and Cindy, and Prompto only replies "I won't kiss and tell".
- Meaningful Name: Her surname is Latin for "golden".
- Ms. Fanservice: Cutscenes grace her with some very gracious camera angles, which Gladiolus and Prompto clearly appreciate.
- Nice Girl: Especially in comparison to her grumpier granddad.
- Nom de Mom: Her surname, Aurum, was her mother's maiden name.
- Oblivious to Love: "Oblivious To Flirting" more like. She keeps misinterpreting the guys' (blatant) attempts to hit on her for something... innocent, much to their chagrin.
- Older Than She Looks: A downplayed example, but it's interesting that at 26, she's, in fact, older than guys like Ignis and the grizzled Gladiolus.
- Raised by Grandparents: Both her parents were killed by Daemons when she was a child, leaving Cid to raise her.
- Sexy Whatever Outfit: Her coveralls don't cover her at all.
- Southern-Fried Genius: She's a mechanic with a Southern accent, just like her grandfather.
- Stripperiffic: Her work uniform includes a bikini with matching thong, a cut-off jacket, an oversized belt draped over short shorts, thigh-high stockings and stripper boots.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Cindy wears short shorts in her usual uniform.
- Wrench Wench: Complete with messy hair and motor-grease stains.
- Zettai Ryouiki: She wears thigh-high stockings in her work uniform.
First Secretary Camelia Claustra
Voiced by: Jun Karasawa (Japanese), Judith Flanagan (English)
Appears in: Final Fantasy XV | Episode Ignis
First Secretary of the Accordo Protectorate, Camelia gave Luna sanctuary while she was being pursued by Niflheim, working alongside her and Noctis to arrange the rite to summon Leviathan.
- Implied Death Threat: She gives a subtle hint at one to Noctis during negotiations and, depending on your answer, she will either be impressed with you and compare you to your father or mock you for your perceived inexperience at diplomacy.
- Iron Lady: She's not afraid to take a hard stance in her negotiations with Noctis, even telling Noctis that if her people come to harm, then the King and the Oracle will pay for it.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being cold and reminding Noctis she could simply hand Luna over to Niflheim, she shows concern for Luna while they're in in private. Likewise, after the events at Altissia, she credits Noctis and Luna for saving her city and people over the radio.
- No Historical Figures Were Harmed: She bears a startling resemblance to Margaret Thatcher, Hillary Clinton, and Angela Merkel. Given that all three are considered Iron Lady leaders of their own nations (Thatcher was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Clinton was the Secretary of State and first female to run for President of the United States on a major party ticket, and Angela Merkel is, as of 2017, the current Chancellor of Germany and de facto leader of the European Union), this resemblance allows for Claustra to be more easily believed as a strong, powerful leader for the player.
- The Needs of the Many: A core concern of her negotiations with Noctis. While she's willing to allow the rite to happen for the sake of the The Prophecy, her duty is to Altissia first and allowing the rite would mean drawing Niflheim's ire towards them. The player can gain her trust by recognizing this and showing empathy for her position.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Even though Noctis is essentially a ruler-in-exile and doesn't have any political leverage against her, Claustra is still happily willing to hear him out and help he and Luna summon Leviathan.

- Action Survivor: They not only survive Ardyn's train attack, but also Shiva's blizzard at that! Post-time-skip, they have become practically legendary hunters alongside Aranea and Cor.
- Badass Driver: More like badass train driver. They're the only ones capable of running the train after Aranea evacuated all the civilians.
- Nice Guy: Much like their boss, they're both very friendly and helpful.
- Not What I Signed Up For: Biggs says as much when explaining why he and Wedge left the Imperial Army after everything in Altissia goes to hell.
- The Quiet One/Terse Talker: Wedge tends to give one or two-word answers in contrast to Biggs, who's far more talkative.
- Those Two Guys: It wouldn't be a Final Fantasy game without Biggs and Wedge, eternal Heterosexual Life-Partners.
- Undying Loyalty: Towards Aranea.

An NPC that Noctis and his friends meet early on in their adventure. He's a hunter who travels throughout Lucis, giving Noctis missions to hunt down dog tags of fallen hunters.
- Aerith and Bob: In a game full of fantastical names like "Noctis" and "Gladiolus", and where even NP Cs tend to have rather "out there" names, a guy who's just called "Dave" of all things stands out for being incredibly mundane.
- Big Good: He's the one who rallies the Hunters together to Lestallum to help keep the citizens and refugees safe from Ardyn and the daemons. He can be heard on the radio during chapter 13 offering asylum to anyone escaping Niflheim, Tenebrae, and Accordio.
- Due to the Dead: The reason he hunts down tracks down dog tags is because they tend to be the only remains of deceased hunters and he gives them to their families so they can pay their respects.
- Family Business: The previous leader of the Hunters was his mother.
- Hunter of Monsters: He leads the Hunters, an organization of bounty hunters who track and kill monsters and daemons.
- You Are Not Ready: Done to himself. Like his mother, he became the leader of the Hunters. However, he suffered from self doubt and, at the advice of his estranged aunt, decided he wasn't ready to lead the Hunters yet.

An NPC in Galdin Quay. He's a journalist with ambitions to become a jewel artisan. He sends Noctis to various locations in Lucis to find rare stones to make accessories out of.
- Brooklyn Rage: Subverted. He has a very heavy city accent, but he doesn't act angry or violent at any point.
- The Casanova: He's seen hitting on Coctura, the chef of Galdin Quay, at one point.
- Killed Offscreen: Implied. Players can find his clothes lying around his usual spot in chapter 14, which would mean he was turned into a daemon at some point.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's decidedly shady when first met, basically blackmailing Noctis and his friends into finding him rare stones. But he has honorable intentions, as he wants to make accessories that'll help protect people from daemons at night. He's also genuinely remorseful that the attack on Insomnia meant that he could keep his promise to arrange a boat to Altissa for the group.
- Shame If Something Happened: When Noctis first meets him, he makes a not-so-thinly veiled threat that he would expose Noctis to the press if he didn't find the stones he wanted.

A world-famous, yet absentminded researcher who happens to be looking into why the nights are growing longer. She appears in various locations and sends Noctis on quests to find frogs and other research subjects.
- Absent-Minded Professor: She's rather motivated about her work, to the point where it leaves her a little oblivious to her surroundings. Case in point, she never actually realizes that she is sending the heir to the Lucian throne out on her research projects, and when Noctis brings up that he has "royal stuff" that would get in the way of his being a scientist, she thinks he means he is an actor in the royal theater.
- Black and Nerdy: A black professor who's obsessed with researching frogs and animal life.
- Ignored Expert: She was one of the few people to notice the nights getting longer and tried to look into it while the rest of the world wasn't concerned until the sun was rising three hours late. Furthermore, her belief that changes in animal behavior was the key to discovering the reason for the days getting shorter had merit since it's later revealed that daemons are people and animals infected with parasites that drink sunlight.

The owner and editor of Meteor Publishing in Lestallum. He sends Noctis and his friends on quests to take pictures of places throughout Lucis.
- Big Fun: He's more than happy to give the protagonists honest pay for their work, and gives them fair warning if one of his requests is particularly dangerous. Likewise, when he figures out Noct is the prince of Lucis, he decides to act as a Secret Keeper.
- Fat Bastard: Averted. Despite the group originally finding him somewhat sketchy, he turns out to be an honest and reasonable person. He always warns the group about the increasing difficulty of his requests and offers them more money for their trouble. And although he deduces that it's Noctis he's working with, he never tries to betray him for his own profit.
- Geek Physiques: He's a sweaty, obese man with a neckbeard.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: He bears an uncanny resemblance to Jorge Garcia, who plays Hurley on LOST.
- Non-Idle Rich: He's the highest paying NPC in the game, but despite his wealth, he still does plenty of the leg work for his magazine himself.
- Secret Keeper: When he figures out Noct's true identity, he decides not to sell him out for personal gain.

After killing Deadeye, the gang can rent chocobos from Wiz, do some quests for him, and even raise an absolutely adorable black chocobo click.
- Badass Beard: He's got an impressive beard, but is otherwise a teddy-bear of a man.
- Cool Old Guy: An older fella who makes a living raising chocobos. Can one get any cooler than that?
- Drinking Buddies: With Gladio. He'll sometimes join him for some beers while spending the night at his post.

- Nice Guy: It really shows in how much love and care he gives his birds.
- Team Chef: Not to the same (obsessive!) extent as Ignis, but Wiz does experiment with a few new recipes throughout the game.

An original character created for "Adventurer from Another World", a collaboration with Final Fantasy XIV. Y'jhimei is a miqo'te from Hydaelyn, a world that is under constant threat from summoned god-like entities known as primals. With someone on Eos attempting to summon Garuda, one of the most violent and bloodthirsty primals in existence, Y'jhimei has requested the aid of Noctis and his friends to prevent a potentially cataclysm.
- Cat Girl: Miqo'te are possessed of long cat-like ears and fluffy tails. As a member of the Seekers of the Sun subrace, Y'jhimei also has slitted pupils like a cat.
- Genki Girl: She is very perky.
- Guest-Star Party Member: Sort of. She follows the bros around for a bit, and even heals them in battle, but she herself doesn't actively participate in combat, possess any offensive abilities, or even occupy the guest slot.
- Fiery Redhead: Has deep red hair and spunk to spare.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Why exactly is she and the Ixal beastmen on Eos? She accidentally brought them and herself over with an Allagan teleporter. Oops!
- Original Generation: Y'jhimei is an original character created specifically for the FFXIV crossover event.
- Spell Book: As an Arcanist, Y'jhimei uses a magic tome as her weapon of choice.
- Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Her cat-girl appearance only momentarily gives the bros pause, but they write it off fairly quickly. If anything, her fatass Chocobo was far more curious to Noct and Ignis.
- White Mage: In FFXIV, the Arcanist is a DPS class that gains access to the healing spell Physick early on and can later become the healer job Scholar. This is reflected in Y'jhimei's fighting style, which is focused on healing her allies in combat.
- Wrong Context Magic: Since shes from another world, her magic runs on a completely different set of rules from how it works in Eos. The fact that she can cast magic at all is eyebrow-raising to the party, and Prompto is blown away when she mentions that shes only a novice.
