The character Vanille was featured in Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2. Her outfit has taken inspiration from the traditional clothes of the Namibian Himba women. There was a clearly a lot of effort put into Vanille’s physical appearance but
what makes her an attractive character is she’s very layered.
In Final Fantasy XIII, Vanille is portrayed as having an almost childlike innocence, she’s a caring empathetic character but she also has a with a degree of stubbornness about her too. She tends to have a happy-go-lucky persona, and she’s always trying to raise the positivity of the group.
What makes Vanille an endearing character is beneath the mask of innocence is clearly very capable in a fight. According to the Dengeki PlayStation 3 magazine, the fur pelt that she proudly wears around her waist is that of a bear that she defeated single-handedly, showing there's more to her than meets the eye.
