Lightning (ライトニング [lightning] in Japanese) is the protagonist of Final Fantasy XIII and a major player in FFXIII-2, as well as a playable character in Duodecim. She has a younger sister called Serah Farron, and the two's parents died when they were young. Because of this, she's very protective of her sister. The two lived in Bodhum before the events of the game, and Lightning had a job protecting the city from monsters. She became a l'Cie in 13, and is thrown into the Void Beyond at the end of it, which is presumably the time she ended up in Duodecim. Sometime after her fall into the Void, she woke up in Valhalla and became Etro's Knight. She's 21 years old at the start of FF13, and is 171 cm tall.

Her seiyuu in the Japanese version is Maaya Sakamoto, and is voiced by Ali Hillis in the English version.
