Promotional artwork of Lightning's Pulse Brand, from Final Fantasy XIII. The "brand" of the l'Cie is visible somewhere on the person's body. The appearance of the brand is dependent on the Fal'Cie's alignment that chose the l'Cie, and both Cocoon and Pulse fal'Cie have a different brand they use. The brand of the Pulse fal'Cie is an overlapping sequence of black arrows. Over time, the arrows multiply and a closed eye is revealed. When the eye opens fully, the l'Cie's time has run out, and they will turn into a Cie'th.
