Faris. Her design is awesome and her character is simple yet likable. Helps that FFV is also one of my favorites.

Faris pretty much disappeared from the story and dialogue after Syldra died, which gives her a low score in my book.

Lightning.

Faris, easily. No matter what criticisms I could come up with for Faris, its all mitigated by an enormous sense of fun that comes from her.

Lightning is just irritating. She lacks the emotion, depth or even the pure sense of fun that makes characters good.

Too easy.

Faris. Her dialogue expresses the genuine personality of a pirate, and further supports her cogent background as being surrounded by cabin boys and pirates much of her life. For development, it's this same background serving as a plausible reason for her inability to adjust to royalty (or as a figure in a royal setting).

The other half of her development involves her close companion Syldra, which she's shown to care deeply for throughout the story. Syldra best serves to show Faris' compassionate end, a direct contrast to the rugged risktaking pirates around her inspiring just that.

She's all about that life! Swashbuckling, bar-hopping lady she is.


This is... beautiful.

I love Faris plenty (crossing dressing pirate = win), but I still love Lightning more.

I guess I should consider that Lightning has more character development than Faris, so I guess it's not really fair to compare in the first place, but...

Faris was actually pretty interesting with her being a princess with a pirate upbringing, struggles to hide her gender among her friends and allies, and abandonment issues with her father. I personally love how flawed Lightning is and how she changes over the course of FFXIII (I dunno why Toriyama implies she's perfect; that's boring as mud and Lightning ain't boring to me).

That said, they're both strong and fearless women. Hope Stella and that mystery black haired woman prove to be similar ^^

Faris is one of my absolute favorites in FF and will remain there. Lightning doesn't even break my top 50... this is a no brainier!

Completely blanked out on who Faris was and thought of this: http://tinypic.com/r/2jdjpy8/5

I'll still vote Faris.
