The Goddess Etro is a goddess in the Fabula Nova Crystallis: Final Fantasy XIII series.




Final Fantasy XIII

Etro is mentioned in the game's AutoClips entries, where she "sings a lament for the dead."

Final Fantasy Versus XIII

According to Stella Nox Fleuret, a legend of Tenebrae says the Goddess Etro greets the souls of the deceased, and opens the door to the afterlife. When that door opens, the released souls burst out in a streak of light that ascends to heaven. It is said that when those near death are able to see that light, however, very few people are able to see that light, and those who can see it are given power from the Kingdom of the Dead.

Stella states in a conversation with Noctis Lucis Caelum that she can see the light, and Noctis in turn can as well. Noctis guesses that both of them are dying, though little else is currently known about the goddess.

According to a piece of concept art released during the end of 2008, fal'Cie, godlike entities which also appear in Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII, will be featured in the game. Etro is speculated by many fans to be one of them.


  • Her design in Final Fantasy Versus XIII is similar to the entity Necron from Final Fantasy IX. This is supported by the fact that "Necron" is related to the the Greek νεκρός (nekrós) which means "dead".
