Lola worrying about her boyfriend.

Lola lives in Maranda and has a boyfriend who is an Imperial soldier who arrived in Mobliz after being badly wounded for attempting to escape the Imperial Army. Her boyfriend constantly sends her letters, but after being wounded he can no longer write. The Returners can send letters to Lola in his stead, giving them the opportunity to earn a Tintinnabulum.

Cyan encourages Lola.

After the cataclysm, Lola's boyfriend passed away. Cyan Garamonde began writing letters in his stead, but he stops after Celes Chere's party finds him on Mt. Zozo. If the party returns to Lola with Cyan, he will replace the most recent letter with another that says that he has been writing in her boyfriend's stead, explaining that her boyfriend passed away. When Lola expresses her wish to meet whoever wrote the letters, Cyan will speak up only if he is not alone in the party.

The story of Lola, her boyfriend, and Cyan, matches the one of Roxane, Cyrano and Christian in the French author Edmond Rostand's play, Cyrano de Bergerac. Roxane is in love with Christian, but Cyrano keeps writing letters to her after Christian's death, making as if he was still alive.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Lola is a feminine given name, a short form of the Spanish name Dolores, meaning "sorrows".
