The Hope Estheim (Final Fantasy XIII) fanlisting has been online since March 20, 2017 ♥
It is entitled Guardian, which is inspired from the role he takes on as he matures into a fine young man ♪ Hope starts off as a naive and rebellious teenager who falls into despair when he witnesses the death of his mother during the Purge. Fighting alongside Lightning brings him back on the right path, and he eventually becomes a symbol of hope for the people. He dedicates his life towards researching ways to save humanity, and I like to think of Hope as the guardian of the future ☆
Version 1 A New World features our hero as he
dreamily gazes off into the distance ☆ While I adored the little Hope from the first game, it wasn't until he aged into a handsome and intelligent young man in Final Fantasy XIII-2 that I fell completely in love with him ♥ Therefore the layout had to feature older!Hope X3 I wanted a design that would live up to his image as a symbol of hope so I made it serene and peaceful.
