Final Fantasy XIII - What's Your Opinion On Characters?
Serah reconciles with Lightning, who accepts her relationship After Serah accepts Noel's offer to be brought to Lightning, the two. I'm not so sure about that, while a lesbian relationship might have been .. I disagree that there is no evidence for a Noel/Serah relationship. I feel that Serah is only defined by being Lightning's sister and Snow's fiancee. but so far, it's only her relationship to these two that describes her at all . Noel just wants a world where everyone lives, but Serah wants that.
After Dajh's soul is lost and his body falls into a coma, Sazh becomes tormented by his seeming failure to protect his son. In the May edition of Official PlayStation MagazineYoshinori Kitase said that Sazh was intended to be an Eddie Murphy -style comic-relief character as well as a sympathetic character. Due to the character having the largest amount of dialogue in the game, an experienced voice actor was chosen for him.
He was also named "Baz".
The two wake from crystal stasis within the Pulse Vestige containing the fal'Cie Anima thirteen days prior to the start of Final Fantasy XIII, which in turn kicks off the chain of events that lead to Cocoon's descent into chaos.
She eventually meets Snow and becomes his partner as part of Cid's plan to overthrow the Sanctum, later befriending Lightning. After rescuing Sazh and Vanille on board the Palamecia, she and Vanille reunite. Later, after being told about their focus and resolving to fulfill it even if she has to fight her friends, Fang has to fight and tame the Eidolon Bahamut. On Gran Pulse, despite Vanille's protests, Fang reveals that she was responsible for scarring Cocoon's shell centuries earlier and bringing deadly recriminations on the population of Gran Pulse.Our Final Memory - Serah & Noel
Fang was originally scripted to be a male character during the early stages of Final Fantasy XIII's development, but early in the writing stage, was rewritten as a female character. Lightning gives Noel the task of finding Serah and bringing to her to Valhalla.
Traveling to Serah's time, Noel sets out with her to find Lightning, repair the timeline and change his future at any cost, even erasing himself from existence. Eventually, Noel gains respect for Snow. Though he and Serah finally defeat Caius in Valhalla, Noel is forced into a situation that ends with Caius's death.
By the events of Lightning Returns, forced to protect the people as the "Shadow Hunter" after the Order of Salvation take over Luxerion, Noel becomes obsessed with a fabricated prophecy that if he kills Bhunivelze's savior, he will bring about a new world where he can live in peace with Yeul. They briefly ally to rout an extremist sect of the Children of Etro, who have been killing women who resemble Lightning. Lightning provokes Noel into fully expressing his rage and engaging him in battle.
After the battle, Noel destroys the oracle drive playing the fabricated prophecy, finally freeing himself from his guilt. After Bhunivelze's defeat, Noel offers his life to give Yeul a chance to live in the new world, and Caius allows the final incarnation of Yeul to go with him.
When designing his clothes, Naora took into account he was a hunter, while his swords were based on a Final Fantasy III illustration by Yoshitaka Amano. Eventually, they meet up with the party before they enter Orphan's cradle.
This plan involved using the l'Cie-forged beast Ragnarok to destroy Cocoon with the countless deaths from the crash to cause Etro's Gate to manifest in the physical world.
He even goes so far as to use anti-Pulse propaganda to instil fear in the citizens of Cocoon. The first attempt, the War of Transgression, fails through the intervention of Etro. When confronted by the team in Orphan's Cradle, Dysley plays on their emotions with illusions of Serah and Dajh before being mortally wounded by the party as Barthandelus. His body is then assimilated into Orphan and he ceases to be an independent entity.
Dysley is voiced by S. Both Orphan and the Cocoon fal'Cie had been planning its demise in order to reunite with their creator in the aftermath of the resulting mass genocide of every human in Cocoon.
It then proceeds to torture Fang and Vanille to invoke Ragnarok. However, Lightning and the others gain a new focus for a peaceful world and force Orphan into its true form before the party defeats it in the game's final battle. Orphan's shell is voiced by Julia Fletcher and S. He serves as the director of the government's military branches and pilots his personal fighter, the Proudclad. In fact, I think their final scene together really reveals a lot about them. I will also say that I think Caius has no romantic interest in Noel whatsoever.
He simply sees Noel as an intriguing and complex person who is able to stand up to him as a rival and offer a perspective of truth that Caius himself does not want to admit to himself.
Caius respects Noel for this. I feel he cares for Noel rather deeply, though he refuses to show it, and despite the queeny costume, I don't think Caius shows any tendency toward being romantically interested in another dude. In fact, after all he's been through I think romantic feelings are the last thing on his agenda and the last thing he is likely to feel.
In the discussions I saw elsewhere, people were saying that Noel and Caius's mutual obsession with Yeul is evidence that Noel is in fact in love with Yeul.
I'd argue against that, because once again, I feel body language and Noel's attitude towards Yeul reveal a more "big brother" type of attitude towards her. She is, after all, four years younger than him and while it's not a huge enough age gap to say it's impossible for him to have feelings for her, I just don't see any real signals of that in the game. He does love Yeul deeply, but it does not seem in a romantic way.
During the ending scene, despite Caius trying to destroy Yeul and all of history to save her from the Eyes of Etro, Noel will not kill Caius. Caius wants to eliminate Yeul and everyone else from existence and Noel keeps Caius alive still.
Why the devil would he allow that risk to continue unless he has very deep feelings that he has some hope of being reciprocated someday, somehow? I think he has more feelings invested in Caius than he does in Yeul. In fact, he even tells Caius that the reason Yeul kept reincarnating is that she wanted to be with Caius. He is aware that Yeul has a very deep attachment to Caius, and it almost seems cathartic for him to say so.
He's attached, and cares for him deeply. He's trying to get Caius to realize that both him and Yeul care for him deeply, though for some reason he is afraid to bring up his own feelings in the matter fear of rejection and further abandonment? Like I said, when Lightning punches him, I was excited.

Your Naruto characterization of him sums it up, except he had none of the redeeming qualities of Naruto yes, I actually liked the series. He was mostly absent in XII-2 thank goodness, but like Lightning, he seems to be a much better-written character in 3. The bottomless optimism and "We can do it guys! A man who has carried so much of a burden for so long that he has been crushed under it and now is just going through the motions of life.
Although, to grieve over someone for years the way he has is a bit much I think I liked her look.
I liked her attitude. She was missing from 2 mostly, and I have yet to run into her in 3, but I know I will. Looking forward to it.
