Lore[edit | edit source]
"The Holy Flame will lead us to the Kingdom of Truth."
The doctrine of the Temple of Light teaches that the Holy Flame is the symbol of light and truth. As guardian of Holy Flame, Ignis has long relied on his abundant knowledge and unshakable fait to lead the faithful along the path of light. It is for this reason that he is widely known as the "Guide." However, before attaining this status, Ignis was an ordinary Temple scholar.
Obsessed with the pursuit of truth, Ignis spent all his time studying in the Temple's Tower of Contemplation. He read countless ancient texts, among which he discovered Holy Flame manipulation spells that had been long forgotten. Unfortunately the Holy Flame burned out a century ago, making his discovery worthless. Everyone in the Temple lamented this fact. However, Ignis was delighted. His study of the Holy Flame had brought him one step closer to the Kingdom of Truth that he had dreamed of for so long.
Although it could not be put into practice, Ignis' discovery sent shockwaves through the forces of darkness that lurked just out of sight. No one could have anticipated that Ignis' next discovery had the potential to break the balance between light and dark. Commanded by the Lord of Darkness, a demon army mounted an attack on the Temple, during which the scorching flames of hell engulfed the entire Tower of Contemplation. The terrified scholars fled, but the resolute Ignis refused to leave. To protect the precious texts, he willingly endured the agonizing burns inflicted by the raging inferno.
"If this is to be my fate, then bury me in the Kingdom of Truth along with this precious knowledge!" This sincere prayer invoked the power of a holy light. Ignis was shocked to see that the red flames of hell had been turned to a holy white by this power. It was the Holy Flame that Ignis had yearned to see for so many years. Although extinguished long ago, it had been reignited within him.
Ignis recited a Holy Flame manipulation spell almost instinctively, and the Holy Flame formed a wall of fire, just as he had willed it to. "The invaders will be destroyed. The Holy Flame will tear the flesh from their bodies and incinerate their bones!" Brought to the brink of defeat, the Temple guard managed to regroup under Ignis' protection and emerged victorious. After the battle, Ignis returned to the Tower of Contemplation and continued his journey along the road to truth.
"Before truth, the knowledge I possess is but a drop in the ocean."
