Final Fantasy XV's Main Cast Detailed

Square Enix has done the unthinkable and released more relevant news on Final Fantasy XV. Most of these details are short character biographies for Notcis and his band of "heroes", but Square also re-confirmed some of the staff who have been working on the title.

Noctis Lucis Caelum: A childhood affliction endowed Noctis, heir apparent to the throne of Lucis, with the mystical power to see a heavenly light, through which he could sense others' deaths. Noctis rejects rigid royal conventions and acts as somewhat of a renegade, much to the dismay of those who tend to him. Yet while "Noct" may act brash at times, he does so in defense of those loyal to him.

Gladiolus Amicitia: As lord of the noble House Amicitia, Gladiolus continues a line sworn to protect the crown. "Gladio" shares a friendship with Noctis that transcends birth and title, and his loyalty to his liege is born not of duty, but of brotherhood.

Ignis Scientia: Ever the unwavering voice of reason, Ignis was weaned on shrewd logic and a classical education from boyhood so that he might one day counsel the would-be king, Noctis. He applies the deep mutual understanding and trust they have built over time to help smooth over Noctis's brusqueness with others.

Prompto Argentum: The puckish playboy Prompto befriended Noctis in his school days. He wears a chip on his shoulder as an outsider to the royal circle, but remains eager to do all he can for the cause.

Cor Leonis: A living legend of Lucian lore, Lord Commander Cor Leonis's devotion to the art of war is surpassed only by that to his king. Little love is lost between the ill-starred stalwart and Noctis's retinue, yet honor binds him to keep watch over the group all the same.

Square Enix also took time to re-confirm several of the staff members who are hard a work on the long-waited title. Shinji Hashimoto still remains as the producer for Final Fantasy XV, Tetsuya Nomura is the director and character designer, the co-director is Hajime Tabata, Takeshi Nozue as the lead art director, and the famous Yoko Shimmomura is the game's composer.
