Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Yusnaan - An Introduction

Claire Farnworth

Yusnaan, a city of revelry, home to every kind of virtue and vice imaginable and a world away from Luxerion. Great banquets and grand shows take place every night in the exclusive Augur’s Quarter. Fireworks light up the sky and even those who cannot witness the shows can still take part in the splendour. The Patron protects this city though he has retreated in recent times from the public eye. He is the only LCie left in the world and a man of great power.

North Yusnaan

A single monorail station connects Luxerion to Yusnaan. In the north of the city is a great industrial area, home to warehouses and storage containers. Many monsters have made it their homes and people are warned to keep away.

The Glutton’s Quarter is filled with restaurants and places to eat. The prestigious Banquet of the Lord attracts many food experts and holds some very rare cuisine and drink.

The Slaughterhouse lies to the west where warriors do battle and show their might in a huge coliseum. Fights take place every night and there are rare and unusual prizes up for grabs. An assortment of shops and people make the northern reaches of the city their home.

South Yusnaan

In the southern portion of the city is the Reveler’s Quarter which is filled with a wide variety of shops and people needing help. At the heart of the place is a giant Cactuar statue, said to be a memorial to the Fal’Cie Cactuar who gave the Patron his L’Cie powers.

Further south is the Augur’s Quarter, an exclusive area only wealthy people, and those with connections, can enter. Restaurants, outfitters and the nightly show can all be found here.

Finally, the Patron’s Palace overlooks the south of the city. Dark and foreboding now, it used to be used for nightly banquets and feasting. The Patron has retreated into its depths now and no one knows whether he has finally succumbed to his L’Cie brand. Chaos floods the Palace, dragging victims into its depths while also spewing forth terrible monsters.
