It's been a long time since I've posted anything here, but not to worry, this group is NOT dead! Caius's relative lack of popularity makes it difficult to find pieces on deviantArt to include in the group gallery, while lack of time means that most of us who would love to draw more Caius can't do it. Meanwhile, since the release of Lightning Returns, there's been next to no new information to provide about him.

Anyway, just letting everyone know. Thanks for reading! :D

Very well. Do you best, hunter of souls. Cleave the evil from me, and save me... if you can.


For the page design that went overboard on the fangirling, please blame GenesisArclite.

Random thought: why does Cantata Mortis/God in Fire seem to fit the nature of Lightning and Caius's rivalry/emnity?
bretanne Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2014
I think it has to do with the whole theme in Dissidia with light and darkness, cosmos and chaos eternally warring and seeking balance with each other. Caius is similar to Garland due to his connection with chaos and *SPOILERS* Garland essentially being Chaos himself, while there are many similarities between Lightning and Warrior of Light, both being the right hand of a goddess. It's no surprise Lightning's rival in 012 cycle is Garland and that she has issues with Warrior of Light. It's a nice lead up to XIII-2 for what it's worth.

But yeah, the parallels are there, Lightning being a warrior of light and Caius being a warrior of chaos/darkness.

Every time I sing that song (one of my favorites from Dissidia), I pretty much picture Lightning's battle with Caius. I think it suits them.

There's not much to spoil for me about any game in the series anymore. Dissidia gave me what I needed to do some more in depth research.
