Lightning is the main character of Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2. She wields a gunblade that transforms between an automatic weapon and a sword. She also has the ability to control some aspects of gravity using devices developed by the military. She's used "Lightning" as a pseudonym for her real name (Claire Farron) since the death of her parents.

Her sister, Serah Farron, plays a large part in the central plot. Lightning was opposed to Serah's engagement to Snow Villiers, whom she blames for what happened to Serah.

As a l'Cie, Lightning has a tattoo (near her chest, covered by her clothes). Her l'Cie summon is Odin.

Lightning's main roles are Commando, Ravager and Medic. Her weapons of choice are Gunblades.
