Further details on Final Fantasy XV’s Luna and Regis By Erren Van Duine on September 21, 2015 at 7:59 PM

During this year’s Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix revealed further details in a new press release concerning two of Final Fantasy XV’s major characters outside the playable cast – Lunafreya and King Regis.

Regis

In the Kingdom of Lucis, King Regis has maintained a protective barrier around the crown city by channeling the magical energy of the crystal, but the strain has taken a toll on his body. Aged and weakened, with the imperial might of Niflheim at his doorstep and his wall on the verge of collapse, the king finds himself, his beloved son, and his kingdom defenseless.

Luna

Meanwhile, in Tenebrae, Luna’s sacred status as Oracle has elicited a degree of autonomy for the former kingdom, but she must still stand firm in the face of the imperial occupation. By her side stands the mysterious, black-haired Gentiana.

Additionally, director Hajime Tabata expanded on the pair during the 90-minute Active Time Report – filling in with gaps of lore brought over from Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

Lucis is blessed by the crystal and because of that, the royal family of Lucis has special powers. The current King is Regis, the father of Noctis. You may remember that Regis summoned weapons in the former trailers. Weapon summoning is one of the blessings of the crystal. Regis himself has fought in wars in the past alongside Cor and Cid.

Eventually, the Niflheim Empire expanded its territory – now with Lucis the only remaining crown city that is protected by a magic shield. Other territories that once belonged to Lucis are now occupied by Niflheim. The story of FFXV starts from here.

The origin of the magic shield is powered by the crystal. To protect the city from the invasion, the shield is maintained by consuming the magic power of the King; hence – which is why Regis has aged and weakened rapidly.

So why was there a change to Regis’ design? Half of the reason is because the king uses his energy to maintain the magic shield. The other half will be revealed in March.

Noctis’ mother passed away when he was still an infant. Regis never married again, and he raised his son by himself. As the king he has a lot of official business to do, and the time they were able to spend together may not have been enough. To Regis, Noctis is his only son and the only heir to the throne.

As for Luna, there are people in FFXV’s world that are called Oracles. These Oracles converse with gods and cleanse the world – to keep the stability. An Oracle’s special abilities are passed down through bloodline. The Oracle is supported by people in Niflheim, Lucis and other countries. Luna is the youngest Oracle ever and adored the world over.

The Kingdom of Tenebrae, Luna’s homeland, is under the control of Niflheim. Regardless, it has autonomy because of the Oracle. Niflheim invaded Tenebrae in the past and held Luna in captivity. On that basis, the youngest Oracle was born. More details will become apparent in the final game.

Her motion of brushing aside the gun depicts the dignity of the Oracle, her mental strength as the Oracle, and her strength of never surrendering to the threat of weapons.

Luna also spent time with Noctis when they were children. It was a very short time but the promises they made and the memories they shared have been cherished by both. This bond is a basic element similar to the bond between Noctis and his friends and the bond between father and the son.

The next Active Time Report is scheduled toward the end of the year and will focus on the Niflheim Empire.

    Such an interesting reading!!

  • “The other half will be revealed in March.” Ohhhhhh

  • “To Regis, Noctis is his only son and the only heir to the throne”. This part caught my attention because the way I read it sounds like Noctis is not his true son or that Noctis has a bastard brother.

  • That was immediately what i thought as well. I bet the Caelum family have a lot of skeletons in their closet!!

    Loving this game right now

  • Limbs4wings

    Finally we get a glimpse of a more elaborate plot…I also like how Luna rhymes with Yuna…both oracles of some kind.

  • Tristafeyr .

    Funny, both names also have the same meaning: moon.

  • Jesus Christ

    I been saying Sailor moon forever.

  • Noctis Caelum

    I was a bit surprised as I read that.
    “These Oracles converse with gods and cleanse the world – to keep the stability.”
    It sounds to me like Luna and Aerith have the same destiny.

    She was someone of an old almost forgotten populace, who “talked” to the planet/souls and rescued the humanity.
    But…does that mean Luna will also die? ;_;
    Perhaps I just interpret that too much. 😀

  • DON’T SAY IT.

  • Except Luna appears she wont be a doormat like Yuna.

  • Lulcielid

    Plz dont happen ;_;

  • James Stine

    I don’t see the connection… Aerith was able to converse with the Planet because she was a Cetra, there existed loads of them as their own race over a thousand years prior, and the only reason Aerith dies is because Sephiroth (in control of Jenova) kills her to stop her from summoning Holy to counteract Meteor.

    There’s no connection between Luna and Aerith here.

  • James Stine

    Noctis is definitely Regis’ son, as for having a bastard brother, I really doubt it. Also, don’t harp over how a sentence is structured, these aren’t direct translations.

  • Justice V

    Also since Noctis can summon the swords. which is an ability passed down the royal family, it’s kind of obvious that he is in fact his son. Whether he has a brother or not, that could be up for debate hehe.

  • SOMEONEWHOSDISSAPOINTED

    With each ATR i grew more pissed and dissapointed at Tabata for changing the FFVXIII’s story, which i never came to understand why. I mean, the Gameplay and graphics set for FFXV are inhumanly beautiful, ofc, but if a story (and imo a great, original, tragic and dark one) had already been established, with millions of fans starving for the game to come out, then why the fckin fck are you gonna change the story?!?!

    First he said he was ”expanding” the story and giving it more stakes than Versus’s, and im okay with lessening the darkness of Versus a lil bit, to keep a balance. But giving the middle finger to almost everything Nomura created, except for the main characters because he wouldnt dare to, but after that, EVERYTHING ELSE HAS BEEN FCKIN TEARED APART.

    Im okay with Regis’s story for the shield, but Luna being the Oracle, how damn unoriginal, thats a copy of Yuna or Aerith, Stella was way more original, and also Tabata said that he wont be ”focusing on human drama like Versus was going to”, sooo fck an original Final Fantasy title, right sht-eater Tabata?

    I just cant get why delay the game even more to change the great story into a super gay and copy-pasted one? Whyy?? I feel so impotent cause i cant do anything to that azzhole, fck that shit and fck that man, damnn

  • daveguitar

    Get a life

  • Momiji

    I feel you man, but if Nomura were at the helm we wouldn’t see this game until 2020. The man is a perfectionist which is why he takes so damn long to do something but the product is usually worthwhile.
