A series of web novellas entitled “Final Fantasy XIII: Episode Zero: Promise” by Jun Eishima depicted the thirteen days leading up to the beginning of Final Fantasy XIII. In the first part of the series, "Encounter", Lightning opposed the engagement of her younger sister Serah to the leader of the rebel group NORA, Snow Villiers. Lightning had not realized that Serah has become a l'Cie on her 21st birthday until it was too late. She then resigned as Sergeant of the Guardian Corps in order to go with Sazh Katzroy to save her sister.
