Cocoon - a utopia in the sky.

Its inhabitants believed their world a paradise.

Under the Sanctum's rule, Cocoon had long known peace and prosperity.

Nurtured by their benevolent protectors, the fal'Cie, humankind came to believe that these tranquil days would continue forever.

But the discovery of a single hostile fal'Cie changed everything.

The moment that fal'Cie from Pulse - the feared and detested lowerworld - awoke from its slumber, peace on Cocoon came to an end.

Fal'Cie brand humans, transforming them into magic-wielding servants.

They become l'Cie - the fal'Cie's chosen.

Those branded with the mark of the l'Cie must either do their master's bidding or face a fate far worse than death.

A prayer for redemption...

A wish to protect the world...

A promise to challenge destiny...

After thirteen days, the intertwining fates of a chosen few will lead them to battle. A battle for the future.
