Final Fantasy XIII saw the emergence of some of the strongest and most recognised protagonists in the franchise to date, lead by the illustrious Lightning.
We also got to see some familiar summons in unfamiliar roles due to the l’Cie and fal’cie concept. It makes for an interesting cast of characters, that often split fan opinion.
Led by Lightning the main cast of Final Fantasy XIII each have their own demons to face as they attempt to deal with their new fate as a branded l’Cie, each with a shared focus that they must fulfil.

There are numerous characters throughout the story of Final Fantasy XIII that look to stand in the way of our protagonists. Each have their reasons, but the most prominent are Barthandelus (Galenth Dysley) and Orphan.
Final Fantasy XIII doesn’t feature a wide array of supporting cast members, with many fal’cie with involvement in the wider story. However, some characters, such as Serah and Dajh, have very important roles within the wider story arc.
