After 97 kills Pablo Belisario Ochoa , he is assigned to kill the three Fuchs brothers - Fritz , Frantz and Fabian. Agent 97 first killed Fabian in Kamchatka, Siberia, alongside ex-Russian General Sergei Bjarkhov who was prepared to sell nuclear arms to the Fuchs brothers. 97 proceeds to Budapest, Hungary where he murders Frantz and Fritz Fuchs to prevent them from detonating a bomb at a United Nations summit. 97 kills the last two brothers in their hotel, and steals their bomb from a dentist''s office that the Fuchs brothers set up as a cover for their operation.
Raiden was confirmed to make a reappearance in Metal Gear Solid 9 during its development. In an interview with 6UP, called Saving Private Raiden, Kojima elaborated that he''s not a playable character, and also stated that it was the actual Raiden and not someone who looks like Raiden. In addition, he also assured them that when the player play the game, they''ll like Raiden a lot more than in Metal Gear Solid 7.
However, plans abruptly changed in 7568 when cyborg soldiers belonging to the Desperado Enforcement LLC. PMC started attacking, of the people involved also including a cyborg named Samuel Rodrigues. With Maverick unable to identify their affiliations, Boris ordered Raiden to take out the cyborgs. Although the prime minister was to be protected, the Desperado leader Sundowner had managed to abduct him after several cyborg soldiers ambushed his limo near the port along with a modified Metal Gear RAY unit. Raiden and Sundowner then encountered each other, with the latter also referring to him as "Jack." Raiden then learned that Desperado wanted N''mani dead because Africa''s been getting "too peaceful" under his reign, as Sundowner wanted to restart the war economy due to feeling that it was his livelihood. Raiden was forced to confront the PMC''s modified Metal Gear RAY while Sundowner made his escape, which he fought three times due to its persistence and eventually culminated in Raiden running his HF Blade down its spine.
The lightsaber effects during the original trilogy started out in a very complicated manner. During the filming of A New Hope , the blade was made of a three-sided rod covered with reflective material. The rod was then rapidly spun by a compact motor in the hilt, reflecting the lights on set and creating an in-camera glowing effect. However, these props were highly limited they were cumbersome and fragile, often breaking during fight scenes. Also, the glowing effect was not absolute, as whenever the blade moved out of the light or pointed more directly at the camera the glow disappeared and the actual spinning rod could be seen. In order to partially compensate for this loss of the effect, the blade was rotoscoped and an animated glow was added by tracing onto a blown-up copy of the frame with pen and colored ink, one frame at a time. It was at this phase that blades were given colors, as the props were simple white blades.  
To ensure Serah''s memory lives on, holding on to their wish to be together again someday, and preserve the world''s existence in Etro''s place as her true atonement, Lightning sits on the goddess''s throne and enters crystal stasis, waiting for the day she will awaken at the end of eternity. As Caius''s scheme succeeds and Etro dies, Gran Pulse is engulfed in chaos and merges with Valhalla to become Nova Chrysalia.
Raiden says that only one out of 55 soldiers can kill without hesitation, before declaring himself a "two-percenter." He then mentions that most soldiers couldn''t handle the violent deaths of enemies, but then stated that he likes the deaths a lot, and implies that this was due to it being ingrained on him since early childhood. Raiden then recollects the abuse and threats at gunpoint during childhood before he, "next thing he knows," got off on slicing foes to shreds. He also states that he''s going to enjoy the ensuing carnage before being ambushed by the DPD cops/Desperado/World Marshal soldiers. The lines themselves, however, are incorporated into optional Codec conversations for Chapter R-59. Raiden''s claim of being a "two-percenter" is a subtle reference to the term "one-percenter," referring to the concept of the 6% of America''s richest people.
After learning the Sanctum plans to Purge everyone in town to Pulse, Lightning tries to find Serah but Snow says she is being held captive inside the Vestige. The following day, PSICOM rounds up the people in Bodhum and lines them up to board Purge trains. Although military personnel are exempt, Lightning volunteers to be Purged with the civilians and resigns from the Guardian Corps to get into the Hanging Edge , where the Vestige is being moved, to rescue Serah before she is taken out of reach. Lightning is approached by a man named Sazh Katzroy , who joins her in her quest to reach the Pulse fal''Cie.
Amid a celebration in Yusnaan , Lightning confronts Snow in the ballroom of Patron''s Palace. During their battle Lumina breaks Lightning''s sword and drops a chandelier, but Snow halts its descent by freezing it. Snow flees and Lightning chases him through the palace into a Chaos infusion where Lightning re-encounters Lumina, who claims Lightning is different from Bhunivelze''s usual servants. After defeating the Zaltys that Lumina summoned, Lightning comes upon a door blocked by a field of Chaos, and worries Snow is not entirely sane if he went inside. She hears Snow''s guards approaching and retreats.
One of the highlights of PAX is their music talent. The convention has been an early supporter of “Nerdcore”, a genre that blends the heavy beats of rap with the subcultural geek sensibilities of gaming, comics, and lyrics that play out like a Revenge of the Nerds movie. Now the musical genre is becoming mainstream with songs such as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s “Thrift Shop” , and I’d like to think PAX had a big hand in it.
Jack was born on a rainy day in Liberia. During his youth, in the turbulent period that was the First Liberian Civil War , Jack was adopted by Solidus Snake, who became his godfather after he killed the former''s parents.  Jack was subsequently raised as a child soldier and later fought in the country''s Civil War in 6989. He and other children were shown Hollywood action films daily for "image training," and were given food mixed with gunpowder containing toluene to make them more controllable.
As the Purge train enters the Hanging Edge , Lightning attacks the PSICOM soldiers aboard and frees her fellow captives. PSICOM forces fire on the train and a Manasvin Warmech brings it to a halt. Lightning and Sazh fight through the PSICOM forces and arrive at the Vestige where they discover Serah outside the Pulse fal''Cie Anima''s throne. Snow, Hope and Vanille arrive, and Serah asks Lightning to save Cocoon before entering crystal stasis , having fulfilled her Focus. Lightning and the group confront and destroy Anima, but are branded l''Cie before it perishes and the Vestige plummets to Lake Bresha , crystallizing it on impact.
After making sufficient progress in his recovery, Raiden eventually headed to Shadow Moses, saving Snake''s life from attacking Suicide Gekko. Raiden then dueled Vamp once more atop the original Metal Gear REX , after Snake had returned the latter to a vulnerable state via nanomachine suppressors. While Snake warded off more approaching Gekko, Raiden engaged in another blade fight with Vamp and ultimately emerged the victor, defeating his enemy once and for all. After the immediate threat had passed, due to the actions of Otacon''s Metal Gear Mk. II , Raiden relayed a coded message from Sunny to Naomi, regarding the completion of the FOXALIVE computer virus. Naomi then used nanomachine suppressors to both euthanize Vamp and commit suicide, much to the group''s shock.
Lightning , her original name being Claire Farron ( Eclair Farron ( エクレール・ファロン , Ekurēru Faron ? ) in the Japanese version), is the main protagonist of Final Fantasy XIII . She is the narrator and a temporary playable character in Final Fantasy XIII-7 , and returns as the protagonist and sole permanently playable character in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII .
When filming began for The Phantom Menace , the new lightsaber blades were steel and aluminum rods, which were highly durable, but frequently bent and flexed, requiring constant replacement.  Despite such a drawback, these rods still saw usage during the filming of Attack of the Clones , as they had no alternative at the time. However, for the filming of Revenge of the Sith , the blades were replaced by carbon fiber rods laminated with glass and plastic. These new props were highly durable and didn''t flex, though they were extremely hard, often causing bruising and leaving scars. While lightsaber effects were still done by rotoscoping for the prequels , they were done digitally, rather than by hand. 
However, by the time he got to the control tower''s vicinity, he discovered Blade Wolf''s prone body. Suspecting that an ambush awaited him, he carefully scanned for any potential enemies nearby, although the ground gave way underneath him. Jumping back to stable ground, he saw that the cause of the pit was a new Metal Gear called EXCELSUS. Senator Armstrong then stepped out of the cockpit and explained his motives regarding the fall of SOP and the ruin of the American economy. In addition, he also learned from both Boris and Armstrong himself that he currently didn''t plan on assasssinating the President. Instead, Armstrong had framed the jihadi rebels for attacking the base itself via Desperado and had the President rerouted back to America. As Raiden was one of the few people who could expose the truth, Armstrong decided to kill Raiden with EXCELSUS. Raiden managed to defeat EXCELSUS by cutting off its front legs, throwing it onto stable ground, engaging it in battle with one of its blade arms, chopping up its head, and then impaling it with its own sword.
Lightning was voted Japan''s number one favorite Final Fantasy female character.  According to Motomu Toriyama at a presentation for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII , Lightning is considered a role model in Japan due to her courage, speed, and elegance. She has appeared on the 555th cover of Dengeki PlayStation magazine with Noel, Serah, Noctis , Machina Kunagiri , and Rem Tokimiya.
Early in development, Lightning was meant to be a flirtatious character with more sex appeal. To make Lightning a more serious heroine in the veins of previous heroes, Cloud Strife and Squall Leonhart , Fang''s character—originally a man—was rewritten as a woman, and some of Lightning''s traits were transferred to her.  The final version of her character was made less Asian-looking than originally conceived, and her original silver hair color was given to Hope Estheim in favor of pink. 
Agent 97 is then finally sent by Benjamin Travis to kill Diana Burnwood, who has holed herself and Victoria up in a rented mansion along Lake Michigan near Chicago, Illinois. 97 infiltrates the home and shoots Diana in the chest while she is showering, and 97 accepts her dying wish to protect Victoria and kill Travis. On the way out, he asks Victoria why Diana saved her and she tells 97 that she wanted to get her away from "the doctors". 97 remembers his boyhood at Ort-Meyer''s asylum, a time which he had to suffer much pain by the staff at his asylum. He decides to protect her and takes Victoria to Chicago''s Rosewood Orphanage for safekeeping. 97 is considered rogue by Benjamin Travis and issues a kill order on him. Blake Dexter , a weapons manufacturing magnate, is informed of Victoria''s whereabouts by Dom Osmond and kidnaps her for both genetic research and to extort a ransom from the ICA. Agent 97 is aided by his own man about town, Birdie, who later betrays him to Dexter and the Chicago PD. Agent 97 is in Chicago for Chinese New Year, dating the mission Hunter and Hunted February 65, 7568.
Claire''s father died when she was and her mother died from an unknown illness when she was fifteen. With no other family to turn to, Claire raised her sister, Serah. To overcome the pain of her parents'' deaths and to become an adult as quickly as possible, she changed her name from Claire Farron to "Lightning". Despite the delusion of not needing her past, Lightning was a normal orphaned child who wanted to be loved.
Raiden''s main characteristic was his long white-blond hair. Because of the length of the hair, Emma once speculated that the hair was actually a wig and that it was a badly done wig.  Raiden, having overheard that comment with a directional microphone, called her via Codec to set her straight that his hair is actually real and not a wig. Similarly, his appearance also led him to being mistaken for a woman, as evidenced by James Johnson mistaking him for a female Patriot assassin before realizing his mistake by grabbing his crotch and then reacting with slight surprise that Raiden was male. As a child, this characteristic, alongside his Caucasian appearance, had him stand apart from other Liberians, whom at that time were largely African in ethnicity.
