Art of Lenne.jpg

Game Series Final Fantasy series
First Appearance Final Fantasy X-2

Lenne appears only in X-2. A famous singer-summoner from Zanarkand during the age of the Machina War, and Shuyin's lover. She was forced to the front lines to fight along with the other summoners in the city. Both she and Shuyin expected that the hopelessly overpowered Zanarkand would fall and that she would die in battle. Thus, Shuyin would attempt using Bevelle's machina weapon, Vegnagun, to defeat Bevelle and save her life. However, she was unwilling to allow him to take the lives of many others for her sake and asked him to stop just as he was about to make of use the behemoth machina. He consented to her request, but the two were not shown the same mercy by their oppressors, and were promptly gunned down by Bevelle soldiers. Upon her death, her spirit was somehow crystallized into the Songstress Dressphere, which contains her memories. Over the course of the game, Lenne attempts to communicate with Yuna, whose Songtress outfit is identical to Lenne's attire. Yuna begins to feel Lenne's presence and feelings more and more until they explode on stage, showing Lenne's final moments alive. Because Yuna unknowingly served as Lenne's host, Shuyin only saw Lenne rather than Yuna herself whenever she donned her Songtress outfit. Using that fact, YRP attempt to reason with Shuyin by telling him Lenne's unsaid feelings. However, since Lenne's presence in Yuna had weakened, Shuyin became enraged and believed that Yuna and her friends had been deceiving him. After Shuyin is defeated, Lenne separates herself from Yuna and finally fades with Shuyin while thanking Yuna for helping her.
