The Final Fantasy XVI Ultimania recently launched in Japan, with many fans now sharing various tidbits of lore found throughout its contents. One of the most interesting early pieces of identified character-related history, posted by @aitaikimochi, regards how Dion’s and Terence’s romantic relationship started.
The two were friends since they were both seven years old and began dating at age 18 when Dion protected Terence from a dangerous attack in the midst of battle. Afterward, Terence took care of Dion in his injured state and confessed his feelings towards the Dominant of Bahamut.
As for their ages in-game, both Dion and Terence are 28 years old in the latter half of the title.
Immense thanks to @aitaikimochi for sharing this information.
Final Fantasy XVI is a more action-heavy entry than its predecessors, with a Devil May Cry V designer even taking the helm. Throughout the title, players will control the protagonist, Clive, as he confronts various Dominants, humans who have been cursed with the power to become Eikons.
Clive is the “First Shield of Rosaria,” sworn to protect his younger brother Joshua, who’s the Dominant of Phoenix. However, following a certain tragedy, Clive swears revenge on the Dark Eikon Ifrit.
The producer, Naoki Yoshida, describes this game as akin to his experience with the first Final Fantasy, as “playing the lead in an epic motion picture.” The reasoning for this title’s action-oriented approach and more classical fantasy setting was to “appeal to as wide a range of gamers as possible.”
Final Fantasy XVI is available on PlayStation 5.
