Story[edit | edit source]
Lost Chapter: On the Road[edit | edit source]
Prompto rides a chocobo. He dismounts briefly before noticing he has become lost. As he searches for the chocobo he is discovered by Ace and Bartz who volunteer to help him. Lightning and Cloud walk by, Lightning noting that if Prompto was alone and confused, he had probably just been brought to the world of respite. Prompto is astonishned, seeing himself as "just a normal guy". Cloud assures that he was chosen by the gods nevertheless, and invites Prompto to join them, suspecting he will recognize someone from his world at camp. Ace would liked for Prompto's chocobo to have joined him in the world of respite; Bartz reassures Prompto that chocobos are tough and that it would be fine by itself. The three walk back to the camp while talking about chocobos.
When Prompto catches up with the main group, he meets Noctis who introduces him to some of the other warriors, including Zidane, Kain, and Auron. Prompto is reserved about fighting for the gods who summoned them to this world, but Noctis explains he couldn't leave even if he wanted to. Prompto wonders why Noctis is fighting in this world, and Noctis says it is because the other warriors are counting on him. Prompto agrees to join Noctis and support him.
The warriors enter the ruins of a city where Prompto watches Jecht defeat an enemy. He reaches for his camera only to remember it did not accompany him into the world of respite. Tifa wonders if it is safe for Prompto to snap battle photographs, while Irvine and Jecht chime in about recording devices from their home worlds. Cyan and Maria, who do not know what cameras are, try to contribute to the conversation. Cyan mistakes photographs for portraits; both he and Maria also ask Prompto why he doesn't just savor the moment in his heart. When Prompto shares that photographs are for saving memories and sharing them with others, Maria responds with excitement; Cyan remembers his wife Elaine and son Owain, wishing he had photographs to remember them by. Prompto offers to take pictures for everyone, but Jecht reminds him that he doesn't have his camera.
Prompto watches in awe as Terra and Shantotto destroy a few mindflayers with magic. Magic is not commonly used in Eos, and Prompto never imagined he might be carried to a different world. Penelo and Hope express solidarity with him; both were normal people pulled into major events in their worlds. Shantotto reassures Prompto that his plain upbringing is something that others stretch to attain; Hope agrees, realizing in hindsight how precious the days before the Purge had been. Prompto struggles believing he is as special as the other warriors, but takes their encouragement to heart.
After another battle alongside Palom, Prompto explains that he drew off the enemy's attention so that Palom could get the finishing blow on them. Laguna, Wakka, Vaan and Vivi catch the end of the conversation, with Laguna jesting at Prompto for becoming Palom's "henchman". After Palom banters with Wakka, Prompto compliments Palom for his penchant for mischief, seeing that it made him close to the other warriors. Prompto was shy when he was Palom's age, and didn't have friends until Noctis. He is insecure about being liked, but Palom assures him that as he is not the closed-off child he used to be, it is only ever a matter of time until other people grow to like him.
Limited Time Event: Commodore of the Skies[edit | edit source]
Aranea Highwind joins the warriors after Spiritus summons her to the world. Prompto is excited to see her and introduces her to the Onion Knight, explaining how Aranea became their ally despite the war between Prompto's country (Lucis) and Aranea's country (Niflheim). Prompto is happy to have arrived in the world of respite before her, because he now has the opportunity to be her guide; she thinks he has "grown a spine" in the new world.
Lightning, Ashe, and Galuf struggle to fight off a magitek armor unit. Aranea, Prompto and the Onion Knight rush to attack it, Aranea drawing its attention, leaving Prompto to strike a finishing blow on the enemy's vulnerable point. After the battle, Prompto regrets missing the chance to return the favor, saving Aranea instead of her saving him. She chides Prompto and tells him that it works both ways; just because Aranea was better-suited to protect everyone with the last enemy doesn't mean that Prompto won't have the chance to step in and save Aranea in the future.
Act 2, Chapter 7: Respite's Authenticity[edit | edit source]
Meeting Ignis[edit | edit source]
Prompto is chatting with Noctis, Fang, and Lyse when Noctis' cell phone inexplicably starts to ring. To their surprise Ignis Scientia has arrived in the world of respite and is reaching out to him. Prompto and Noctis soon reconnect with Ignis in person. Lyse, accompanied by Garnet and Ace, asks for an introduction to their new comrade. Noctis begins to do so but is interrupted by Ignis, who presents himself as Noctis' "tactician". Prompto, bemused, tells him that the phrase is stiff even by Ignis' standards. After a warm round of introductions, Prompto notes with surprise that Ignis seems to be making fast friends with the other warriors. Soon afterwards Mog arrives at their position to tell them that there is brilliance to be found nearby. Fortunately planesgorgers are nowhere to be found; Mog hopes that there will be little in the way to inconvenience them in their search. When Ace cynically asks Mog if he is in some way mistaken or confused, Prompto assures him that everything will be just fine.
As they continue traveling the area, Ignis moves ahead of his friends and begins to converse with Steiner, Edgar, Lenna and Penelo. As Prompto and Noctis watch from afar, Prompto privately expresses a strange discomfort at Ignis' unusual sociability. They both suspect that Ignis - who was brought to the world of respite later, and thus possibly with his full set of memories - knows things that they do not, and that these differences are driving the anomalies in his behavior. As they confer, Noel and Prishe approach them. Noel and Prishe chide Prompto and Noctis for being shy and they push them to more actively engage with their friend. Noctis ultimately decides that he needs to address his concerns head-on. With his assent, Noel brushes past them and calls Ignis over on their behalf.
The three talk privately on the matter; Noctis and Prompto express their concerns about the differences between their memories and Ignis' ones. Among other things, they note that neither of them had met Materia directly, whereas Ignis had, underscoring a change in Materia's approach to her warriors. Ignis deflects their questions and tells them that he doesn't want to complicate situations by conveying vague or incomplete information. Prompto is not satisfied with the answer but Ignis quickly changes the topic. They discuss whether Gladiolus had been brought to the world; how Noctis and Prompto had been doing; and how Prompto has been engaging with his passion for photography. Regrettably, Prompto tells him that he lost his camera in transit. Ignis reassures him that they will keep an eye out for it, underscoring the importance of keeping records of their journey together. When Prompto tells Ignis that his journey in the world of respite had hitherto been enjoyable, Ignis falls silent. The reaction confuses Prompto, who asks why Ignis seemed so underwhelmed.
Confronting Sephiroth[edit | edit source]
Sephiroth kills Materia and seizes her throne. He issues the memories and appearances of the warriors upon countless dark manikins of Zack Fair. Sephiroth then dispatches them to infiltrate the ranks of the warriors in order to confuse and demoralize them. Some time after this happens, Prompto receives an urgent call from Ignis to regroup at his location. When he arrives, he discovers that Ignis has encountered Prompto's and Noctis' clones.
