History[]

Before Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origins[]

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Unlike the rest of her party who are Lufenians chosen for the Stranger project, Neon is a human from Cornelia. She was given a dark crystal by Astos as part of his and Jack's plans to defeat the Lufenians, a plan which she and Jack would forget during the endless cycle of time loops.

Neon realized that the being called "Chaos" did not actually exist, that he was just a fantasy created by the people to blame everything wrong in the world on. She wished to become Chaos herself, hoping that heroes would come down and kill her, and thus bring hope to the world by destroying the peoples' greatest enemy.

Jack, Jed, and Ash battle Chaos Advent and defeats him, revealing Neon. Neon shows her crystal to the party and joins them.

Characteristics[]

Appearance[]

Neon has short gray hair and lavender eyes. She wears a short black sailor style mini dress reminiscent of Japanese school uniforms with a gray bow. Her arms and legs are bandaged and she wears white sneakers.

Personality[]

As Jack's party first encounter Neon, she has lost hope in the world and the idea of chaos as a physical construct, allowing herself to succumb to the darkness and become a monster. As the party continues on, Neon reveals a more lighthearted and joking side to her. She exhibits mannerisms of a younger person as one of her attack quotes are "smashy smashy", and the fact that she refers to a Coeurl as a "kitty".

Neon likes cats and dislikes snakes.

Etymology[]

Neon is a colorless, odorless, inert monatomic gas that was discovered in 1898 as one of the three residual rare inert elements remaining in dry air, after nitrogen, oxygen, argon, and carbon dioxide were removed. It gives a reddish-orange glow when used in lamps. The name is derived from the Greek word, νέον, neuter singular form of νέος (neos), meaning "new".
