The story's protagonist, and member of the Kingsglaive, the king's elite guard under his personal command.

He has honed his fighting skills, and possesses an affinity for the magic that those of royal blood wield.
Lunafrena Nox Fleuret (Lunafreya in the English version)
An Oracle who communes directly with the gods, and is charged with the world's purification. She treasures the short time she spent with Noctis in her childhood. Although she was supposed to head to Altissia for her wedding with Noctis, she heads to Insomnia, where the peace treaty is being signed.
Regis Lucis Caelum
The reigning king of Lucis, and Noctis' father. He is wise, kind-hearted, and loved by his people. After Noctis leaves, he works to bring to fruition the end of hostilities between Lucis and Niflheim, its long-time enemy.
A general in addition to being a Kingsglaive. He is judged by others as a severe person, and he assesses himself even more harshly. He is Nyx's tutor in the art of combat.
A good friend to Nyx, and both of them grew up in the same town. He is a bright and cheerful person, but also shows a side of himself that is persistent when it comes to carrying out his responsibilities.
A self-styled leader of the Kingsglaive, who has earned the confidence of his teammates.
A wielder of great magic, one of few left in the world. She was born in the Kingdom of Lucis, but was raised an orphan. She thinks of the Kingsglaive as her family.
