Vanille
"All of Cocoon was against us. With us dead, they were sure everything would go back—back to the way it was before."
~ —Vanille


Oerba Dia Vanille is a playable character, the narrator and the deuteragonist in Final Fantasy XIII. Her full name stands for "Vanille of the Dia clan, from the village of Oerba."

She is a mysterious young girl who, despite facing many hardships, remains a caring and upbeat person. She carries a dark past, along with a burden her friends are initially unaware of.

In the English dub, she and Fang share a similar Australian accent.

Appearance and Personality

"My name is Oerba Dia Vanille. I'm a l'Cie from Gran Pulse. And to everyone on Cocoon... evil."
~ —Vanille to Sazh


Despite her chronological age, Vanille has the physical appearance of a nineteen year-old. Her bright red hair is tied in curled pigtails. She has green eyes, and pierced ears adorned with silver hoop earrings. She wears a light pink halter top, an orange and yellow skirt, and beige boots. She wears a fur pelt around her waist, which she uses to attach carry her weapon; according to Dengeki PS3 magazine, it is made from a bear she defeated herself. She wears numerous bracelets, and three beaded necklaces, along with an assortment of beads attached to various parts of her clothing. Her outfit is inspired by the traditional clothes of the Namibian Himba women. Vanille's l'Cie brand is located on her upper left thigh, but mostly remains hidden beneath her skirt.

At a first glance, Vanille seems to have a childlike innocence but she hides a maturity befitting her age. Vanille is a considerate, compassionate, understanding, and at times, headstrong and stubborn person. Vanille is also empathetic, easily driven to tears, and deeply caring towards other people, Fang in particular, whom Vanille looks up to like a sister. In Final Fantasy XIII Episode Zero -Promise-, Fang describes Vanille as naive, curious about everything, careless at times, a crybaby and a scaredy-cat. Fang says that she also laughs a lot and is kind to everyone. Vanille remains positive in situations others deem hopeless. She tries to cheer up her friends when they're down, and see the bright side of things.

Even though she has good intentions for her actions, she uses her bubbly personality to hide her true feelings of fear and uncertainty, but mainly the guilt she feels for inadvertently causing countless innocent people to suffer when in reality she tries to protect them. Over the course of the game, Vanille faces her past mistakes, learns to stop running away from her problems, and fight for her friends and what she believes in.
