The Will of Light (光の意志, Hikari no Ishi?) is a significant entity in the Final Fantasy Exvius Universe. A being that represents and governs over the creation of life, the Will of Light stands in opposition to the Will of Oblivion, which symbolizes destruction, with the two forces maintaining a balance between life and death. Although it is seen as having maternal traits and treated as female, the Will of Light seemingly does not present any discernible gender.
The Will of Light makes her debut in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius season three, and is responsible for starting the season's adventure. She is also involved with the origins of Fina and Dark Fina. The Will of Light also appears in War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius where it is revealed she is the overseer of the Warriors of the Crystals.
The Will of Light created life in the many worlds of the Farplane while her counterpart, the Will of Oblivion, terminated existence. To further preserve the balance of life and death, the duo created two beings that would help keep one another in check: Fina and Dark Fina.
In season two, Dark Fina disappeared after exerting herself due to traveling through time to ultimately defeat Vlad, causing an imbalance between the two forces. When Rinora, a boy from the city of Berga, was lost in a forest during his birthday, he stumbled upon the ruins where the Will of Oblivion was slumbering. The unstable force of nothingness bonded with Rinora, transforming the boy into the Bringer of the Hollow, a vessel for the now destructive entity set on spreading unchecked destruction.
Bruce, Rinora's father and a gun-wielding Summoner, battled the possessed Rinora who killed his mother and Bruce's wife, Ella, in the skirmish. Bruce summoned his signature Esper, Doomtrain, who blasted Rinora from a cliff. Although Rinora survived, he lost his memories. The Will of Light appeared and told Bruce of the nature of the broken balance, requesting Bruce to travel the Farplane to close the Hollow's wormholes. The imbalance drove the Will of Oblivion out of control with its Hollow rampaging through the different worlds. Bruce asked if closing the Hollow's wormholes would save Rinora, to which the Will of Light said that a bond made with the Will of Oblivion is not easily broken and that closing the wormholes would at best restore Rinora's memories. Bruce reluctantly accepted the Will of Light's request as he did not want to kill an amnesiac Rinora, for he was effectively an innocent victim. The Will of Light taught Bruce the means to close wormholes, and he departed on the Farplane Express with Rinora as its conductor, creating a ruse for the boy.
As an additional response to the threat, the Will of Light recruited Fina whose own power was weakening and bestowed her with Blue Mage powers, and sent her on a journey across the Farplane. The Will of Light had contacted Bruce who told him to join forces with Fina, to which he complied. The Will of Light later communicated with Fina and Bruce during their stop in Wohlstok, after they closed one of the wormholes, as Roca, a mysterious baby with great magical power, manifestsed. The Will of Light tasksed them with taking Roca to her as she would be a key in stopping the Hollow.
The Will of Light appeared much later in the Fortified City of Berga, Bruce and Rinora's homeworld, when the party defeated the Hollow Keepers and restored Rinora to normalcy after the Will of Oblivion again possessed him. This came the cost of Bruce's life and Roca reaching full maturity after she closed the wormholes. The Will told them to travel to the Evernight Kingdom of Andigo for Roca to reach her.
The party found themselves in a world that had its "tomorrow" taken away by the Hollow. As the Will of Light guided the party, she revealed Fina and Dark Fina's true nature as the Wills' creations and how Roca was the reincarnation of Dark Fina, whose powers needed to be restored to restore balance. Following an encounter with the true Hollow Keepers, the envoys of the Hollow created a rift between Poppy and the rest of the party, as Keeper Moneta used the power of the Hollow to make her cheerfulness disappear and exposing her into a sorrowful side. At the same time the party was periodically bombarded by attacks, making everyone believe Poppy was compromised by the Hollow. After Moneta was defeated, Poppy returned to her true cheerful self and the Will of Light explained to Fina that Poppy lost her zest after getting attacked by Moneta.
In truth, the attacks were caused by Keeper Garote who had hidden in the shadow of the party and sought to use them as a guide to the Will of Light where he dealt a critical blow to the Will. The party was left flabbergasted as Roca could not awaken the power to stop the Hollow, allowing the Will of Oblivion to spread without control in the Farplane and causing cataclysmic destruction.
The Will of Light survived, though greatly weakened, and told the party to go to Equirelle, the world of light, where they were to meet Paus, a spirit that could bestow them with the Blessing of Light, a power that could allow them to face the Will of Oblivion directly.
The Will of Light appearsed in the crossover event. Seeing a breed of Malboro causing destruction, the Will of Light requested aid. Her pleas were answered in the form of visions of Rain, Fina, Mont Leonis, and Machérie Hourne. The Will of Light explained the situation at hand and the four decided to help to stop the rampaging Malboros. Since there were two of them, the Cyan and Magenta Malboros, the group split in pairs to tackle both at once. The party succeeded, but the two Malboros thought defeated regained their strength and fled. One Malboro devoured the other, the mutation birthing the Malboro Matriarch. The two parties rejoined and fought the menace together.
Once the Malboro was defeated, the Will of Light thanked them and revealed the Malboros consumed a strange substance that changed them and confirmed that with the Malboros' defeat, the threat had been stopped and the miasma should disappear. The visions disappeared, looking forward to the next time they could fight together. The Will of Light wondered about the events and whether this was the end before departing. A mysterious Blue Flower grew from withing the Malboro's corpse.
The Will of Light appears as an adult-sized floating rainbow-colored crystal, full of vibrant radiance. Her character model is taken from the 5★ base rarity units crystals. In War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, it uses the model for UR rarity unit crystal. This stands opposed to the Will of Oblivion, whose model is partially based on the 1★ base rarity unit crystal.
The Will of Light is a motherly entity, nurturing and protecting life as it is her duty to spread creation across the universe. A wise being, she's concerned with maintaining balance, and is deeply aware that either force going unchecked, life or death, would have catastrophic results for the universe. She maintains a distant, yet concerned approach with Fina and Roca, preferring to watch over both.
The Will of Light, however, is not entirely benevolent, as it was the grief of being resurrected after the demise of the Will of Oblivion that turned her on a dark path to assume his identity and later rampage on the Farplane as the Will of Equilibrium all on a desire for vengeance and a twisted perception of "balance" by inflicting damage on humanity for the loss of her counterpart. She was nonetheless able to come to grasps with her wrongdoings and decide to keep herself distanced from human matters, deciding to trust humanity.
