The Complete List of Final Fantasy XV Characters

Final Fantasy XV broke with several franchise traditions, featuring a party of four characters but only one main playable lead, and a massive open world that closely resembles our own.

It was also told in a unique fashion, with other multimedia tie-ins like Kingsglaive, Brotherhood, and even its own demo elaborating on its plot. After a very long development the result is a complicated but compelling tapestry.

Main Characters

For the vast majority of the game, players control Noctis. Each companion is playable in their individual DLC Episodes, however, and they can be unlocked for direct control during battle in the main game by unlocking their respective skills from the Ascension menu (under “Techniques”).

Noctis Lucis Caelum
Prompto Argentum

Gladiolus Amicita

Ignis Scientia


The mysterious Ardyn is pulling the strings of the Niflheim Empire, and the party will have to contend with its considerable forces along their journey.

Ardyn Izunia
Caligo Ulldor

Ravus Nox Flueret
Loqi Tummelt

Emperor Iedolas Aldercapt

Supporting Characters

Despite being quite a small game, Final Fantasy I still featured some memorable cast members. Matoya always sticks out, but it was also the first time we got to see Bahamut. Lest we also forget about Lukahn’s prophecy.
