Attachment Early in development, Lightning was meant to be a flirtatious character with more sex appeal. To make Lightning a more serious heroine in the vein of previous heroes, Cloud Strife and Squall Leonhart, Fang's character - which was originally a man - was rewritten as a woman, and some of Lightning's traits were transferred to her. Not only this, but her original silver hair color was given to Hope Estheim in favor of pink.
According to the Final Fantasy XIII Ultimania Omega, at one point in time, Vanille was considered to be the official main character. The idea was scrapped as the development team had already released a trailer and art featuring Lightning taking the role.
