Story summary from the previous title, FINAL FANTASY XIII

 

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.

Mankind was blessed by its protectors, the benevolent fal’Cie, and believed that tranquil days would continue forever.

 

Their tranquillity was shattered with the discovery of one hostile fal’Cie.

 

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 curse humans, turning them into magic-wielding servants.

 

They become l’Cie – chosen of the fal’Cie.

 

Those branded with the mark of a l’Cie carry the burden of either fulfilling their Focus or facing a fate harsher than death itself.

 

A prayer for redemption.

 

A wish to protect the world.

A promise to challenge destiny.

 

After thirteen days of fates intertwined, the battle begins.
