Lightning is a rare type of character not functioning as any of the jobs in Final Fantasy XIV. She wields her iconic gunblade, the Blazefire Saber, and maintains her Commando fighting style and animations from Final Fantasy XIII.
Lightning appears as a legendary (5-stars) card. It used to be the most powerful card with its total number of 36 (9 A 7 A) before Square Enix quickly decreases it to 27 (9 1 7 A) during an emergency server maintenance they had shortly after the Gold Saucer update.

Behind the scenes
Though in appearance she looks like a Midlander Hyur, Lightning's character model is actually a special one, being her original model.
Ascian Igeyorhm reused Lightning's hairstyle, and still is the only NPC to use this hairstyle.
