Story[edit | edit source]

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

Tempering Grounds are thought to date back to the kingdom of Lucis's early stages. Their ruins were discovered thirty years ago. In their deepest recesses awaits the Blademaster, Gilgamesh, who once served as the Shield of the Founder King. Many attempts were made to explore the ruins, but every expedition ended in failure and the deaths of everyone involved except for one man: Cor Leonis.

Gladiolus Amicitia, the sworn shield for Prince Noctis, the 113th successor to the Lucian throne, wishes to undertake the trial of Gilgamesh. Cor supports Gladiolus through the ruins but the former must take on the trials alone. They find past Lucian warriors whose bodies are reanimated by Gilgamesh, whom they refer to as their general. Gladiolus faces off against Gilgamesh and emerges victorious.

Gilgamesh recognizes Gladiolus as being worthy of being the Shield of the True King after seeing Gladiolus's only fear is that he should be too weak to protect Noctis. Gilgamesh reveals he had lost his arm to Cor, and yields Cor's katana, the Genji Blade, to Gladiolus.

Spoilers end here.
