A former sergeant of the Cocoon military, Lightning sought the fal'Cie of Pulse
in order to ask it to save her sister Serah, whom the fal'Cie had turned into a
l'Cie. However, much to her dismay, Lightning was turned into a l'Cie herself.
Her l'Cie mark is in the center of her chest. Lightning has long strawberry
blonde hair and is 177 cm tall (5'9").
