So up until a few years ago, Stella Nox Fleuret was going to be the heroine of FFXV. Recently she was replaced by Lunafreya, for reasons that are still probably incredibly stupid and prone to inspire fanboy outrage. Like the very thing I'm writing right now, weirdly enough.
Lunafreya sucks. She does nothing. She has no powers. She has no agency. Freaking Nyx had to do all the fighting for her, and she was not worth the concern. I just saw the FFXV movie last night, she was worthless. Her only job was to hold a ring and to run away to be banged by Noctis. That's your female character now? She's as worthless as people say Rinoa is (even though Rinoa has Angel Wing and can wreck shit if needed).
I don't know what Stella's intended role was or why it had to go. But there's a screenshot of her using a rapier and magic. So she's already a better character. Lunafreya is junk. 0/10.
Also Kingsglave kinda sucked, but that's another matter.
