Yuna Yna is the female protagonist in both Square Enix039s Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X2 of the Final Fantasy series of console roleplaying games. She has also made cameo appearances in Kingdom Hearts II. Yuna was designed by character designer Tetsuya Nomura. Artwork of Yuna was drawn by Nomura and Yoshitaka Amano. Final Fantasy X Born in Bevelle and brought up on the island of Besaid at the start of Final Fantasy X Yuna is a reserved intelligent and serious girl whose formal attire contrasts sharply with Tidus039 more outgoing appearance. Yuna is a Summoner of Yevon and has the ability to summon powerful creatures known as quotAeons.quot She is mild in demeanor and softspoken but harbors no doubt in herself or in her mission to destroy Sin and usually manages to conceal any feelings of sadness from others. She is also halfAl Bhed on her mother039s side and consequently has heterochromatic irises: one blue and one green. As a Summoner Yuna travels across Spira to end the threat the malevolent force Sin poses to her world aided by her aeons and even more so by her Guardians whose duty it is to protect her along her journey. Yuna begins her pilgrimage across Spira with three Guardians: Kimahri Ronso who took care of her after she was orphaned Lulu who treats her as a younger sister and Wakka with whom mdash along with Lulu mdash she has been close friends since childhood. After Tidus arrives in Besaid she takes him as her fourth Guardian and later Auron mdash who was also Guardian to her father mdash becomes her fifth. Finally Yuna039s maternal cousin Rikku becomes Yuna039s sixth and final Guardian shortly after Tidus and Wakka thwart her attempt to kidnap Yuna with an underwater machina. During the course of the game Yuna is forced to grow in character. She becomes battlehardened and her Yevonite beliefs are shaken and eventually shattered. Furthermore her evergrowing relationship with Tidus causes her to question her quest and think more for herself. This is evident when she is composing the video sphere she intends for her friends and Guardians to view after her death she confesses that the thought of not being with Tidus scares her. As she learns more about Sin mdash against whom she has trained in the Summoners039 arts to use the Final Summoning mdash Yuna becomes caught up in the plot of Maester Seymour Guado who claims to want to unite Spira by marrying her but who seeks to use her to become the next Sin and crush Spira. Yuna had planned to marry him in exchange for him turning himself over to Yevon039s judgment the plan fails and Yuna and her Guardians recently informed of Seymour039s crime fight and kill him. She is later kidnapped by Seymour039s henchmen and brought to Bevelle where her Guardians launch a rescue attempt that ends in their capture. When she discovers that the Church of Yevon uses machina violating its own teachings and that it has no intentions of allowing her to send Seymour despite his evil intentions her faith in Yevon is finally crushed. When Tidus eventually learns the full implication of the Final Summoning mdash that Yuna will sacrifice herself as her father did in order to bring about a temporary period free of Sin called quotthe Calmquot mdash his perspective persuades her that they can find another more permanent way to rid Spira of the threat of Sin. Tidus and Yuna039s mutual love for one another intensifies as the party approaches its destination. In the romantic setting of a sphere pool in Macalania Tidus shares memories of his native Zanarkand and toys with the idea of showing Yuna his home even though it is becoming clear that he can never return. Yuna realizes she will never live to see it and the burden she has been carrying in silence for so long finally causes her to break down and she starts crying uncontrollably. Tidus moves to comfort her and they passionately kiss. In the morning Yuna has little choice but to proceed with her pilgrimage. When the quest draws to a close Yuna is shocked to discover she must sacrifice one of her Guardians to provide the soul for the Final Aeon and that as the Final Aeon will become Sin the Final Summoning can never defeat it. With Tidus039s encouragement she decides to break Yevon039s endless cycle and find another way to defeat Sin one which will not provide it with the means to rise again. This eventually leads to a confrontation with Sin and the true progenitor of Spira039s sorrows Yu Yevon. Yuna039s group defeats Braska039s Final Aeon whose fayth is Tidus039s father Jecht and after defeating Yuna039s aeons as Yu Yevon possesses them defeats Yu Yevon himself. However as a consequence of defeating Yu Yevon and ridding the world of Sin Tidus broke Yu Yevon039s hold on the fayth resulting in Tidus vanishing into nothingness as the fayth wake up. Before he leaves for the Farplane Yuna tells him she loves him in the Japanese version of the game she says quotThank youquot instead basically thanking Tidus for protecting supporting and loving her. In Final Fantasy X International an extra scene called quotEternal Calmquot recounts Yuna039s thoughts two years later as she tries to return to her normal life back in Besaid. As the High Summoner who permanently defeated Sin Yuna is constantly plagued by visitors and tourists. More than once she is told by the elders of her town that she should be considering marriage and settling down. As Yuna contemplates the changing Spira and her role in it Rikku comes to visit showing her a sphere Kimahri found that she believes shows Tidus. Feeling that she deserves an adventure of her own Yuna literally runs off with her cousin without a word fueled by hope that she may be able to find out more regarding Tidus. Final Fantasy X2 After leaving Besaid Yuna undergoes a total makeover complete with a new outfit. From there she sets out as a sphere hunter a new craze sweeping Spira becoming a member of the Gullwings to learn more about the sphere that features a young man with a strong resemblance to Tidus confined within a prison cell. The Gullwings039 members include Rikku a mysterious young woman named quotPainequot an Al Bhed child prodigy named quotShinraquot Rikku039s brother Brother and his friend Buddy. Together with Rikku and Paine the trio of girls are known as quotYRPquot quotYuRiPaquot in the Japanese version. In the opening intro of the game scene her Garment Grid and Songstress Dressphere are stolen by Leblanc who subsequently uses it to impersonate Yuna. While Rikku and Paine attempt to stealthily get the grid back Yuna is forced to use the Gullwings039 quotprizedquot Mascot dressphere until her presence was required. By that time Yuna in her gunner dressphere shows up with Rikku and Paine. Together the Gullwings defeat Leblanc and her chief honchos Ormi and Logos. Yuna displays some changes in personality in Final Fantasy X2: while still very kindhearted and serious about her duties and putting others first Yuna is more open and direct. However her friends still occasionally tease her about her habit of being a pushover for she can never turn her back on anyone039s request for some form of aid such acts of charity as these comprising the majority of the game039s sidequests and missions. Her relationships from Final Fantasy X have given her a new look at life and ndash freed from the responsibilities and restrictions of her former role as Summoner ndash she is presented as a much more freespirited person. She also regards Rikku as something of a role model picking up on her eccentric expressions which included quotdisasterifficquot and quotoh poopiequot Her purpose for traveling with the Gullwings however is mainly because she hopes to find more spheres that would link with the one Kimahri found what she hopes is a clue that Tidus is alive. Her investigations eventually lead her into the plots of Shuyin and the various opposing factions in the postSin Spira particularly those of the Youth League and New Yevon. The Gullwings in general ndash and Yuna in particular ndash seek to restore some sense of unity and peace to a dangerously divided world as well as to stop forces which would seek to damage Spira even further. The player039s actions throughout the course of the game determine whether or not Yuna ever manages to reunite with Tidus a gift to her from the fayth as thanks for having saved the world a second time. Other Appearances Yuna along with Rikku and Paine appears at Hollow Bastion in Kingdom Hearts II working for Maleficent as spies/agents in return for treasure.
