The tenth game of the Final Fantasy
series, Square's 2001 bestselling console role playing game Final Fantasy X
revolves around a summoner and her guardians aiming to defeat a creature known as "Sin" in the fictional universe of Spira. It is told through the eyes of Tidus, a dream of the Fayth. The characters were designed by Tetsuya Nomura. The game's sequel, Final Fantasy X-2
, takes place two years after the events in Final Fantasy X
and uses almost the same cast of characters.
There are seven main playable characters in Final Fantasy X
: Tidus, a skilled blitzball star, who is being summoned by Yu Yevon; Yuna, a reserved and soft spoken summoner; Kimahri Ronso, a member of the Ronso tribe; Wakka, the captain of the blitzball team in Besaid; Lulu, a black mage; Auron, a powerful warrior and an unsent; and Rikku, an Al Bhed and Yuna's cousin. Final Fantasy X-2
features Yuna, Rikku, and Paine as playable characters. Unlike other games in the series, there are no optional or secret playable characters.
Several non-playable characters (or "NPCs") important to the story are the parents of the main protagonists, such as Jecht (Tidus' father), Braska (Yuna's father) and Cid (Rikku's father). The primary antagonists of Final Fantasy X
are Seymour Guado and the other maesters of the Yevon religion, while the malevolent creature known as "Sin" serves as the primary source of conflict. Final Fantasy X-2
features a new series of antagonists that alternate depending on how the player progresses the story. In addition, there is a vast supporting cast of named characters. Most of these characters feature voice talents complementing the principal roles.
