Éclair Farron (Ekurēru Faron) |Lightning|
Final Fantasy XIII
Lightning has long pink-brown hair and is 177 cm tall (5'10"). She is athletic and strong and she weilds a weapon called Blaze Edge which is a combination of a gun and a sword. She has very defined facial features and has greenish blue eyes.
She isn't very feminine in her attitude. She's kind of thoughtful at some times and she has a slightly quick temper. She is a bit impatiant at times. She is a very skilled swordsman and ninja which makes her a valuable ally or a dangerous enemy. She knows how to take in her surroundings before she acts on things and she has no problems letting people know what's on her mind. Through all of this she is quite a deep thinker.
Lightning grew up until age 12 with her parents and her younger sister, Serah, in a Square Enix City called Cocoon, a technologically advanced city-state ruled by a militarist theocracy. She was originally named Éclair Farron but after the untimely death of her parents as an attempt to emotionally reinforce herself as well as to protect herself and her sister. After the death of her parents, she tried to start a new life for herself and to forget the past. She did this by joining the army of Cocoon. She was a soldier in the military for a a few years before she found that she didn't agree with the way the corrupt government was running Cocoon. She left the Army even though she still wears her uniform and the insignia which desplays her rank. she’s a key player in an organization seeking to overthrow Cocoon’s oppressive government.
Recently, she started having bizarre dreams that she couldn't make sense of all focussed on beings who would come to her and show her visions of opression much like the Cocoon government was pressing apon her own people. She saw flashes of a face that she couldn't put a name to and of destructive power that the owner of the face was capable of. She would be asked for help over and over again but she always woke up before she could give them an answer. She knew that someone was trying to contact her for help so she went out into a woodland area outside of Cocoon and she attempted to contact the beings from her dreams through meditation (which isn't her favorite thing to do in the world but she can do it). And the next thing she knew, she was pulled into an entirely new war against a sorcerer named Cateraun who threatens the peace of all of the worlds including her own. She agreed to help under the condition that after the war was over she could return home at the same time she left. Now she fights along with strangers to defeat Cateraun.
Lightning defends herself with a gun/sword hybrid that lets her attack at any reasonable range named Blaze Edge. She has a number of other gadgets on hand that prove useful in a fight, too, including a gravity-manipulation device that lets her leap great distances, hang in mid-air, and otherwise ignore the ordinary constraints of a world where up is up and down is down.
Sorabrawl invited me to this forum and asked me to join this RP. So here I am. I'm working on a character No. II. Let me know if you need something changed.
