-Water's natural opposite and they believe that brawns are the way to win a war. Aggressive, ruthless, and with balls of steel, the Fire Nation are always in the front lines of battle. Because of their nature, these L'Cie are known as the Brutes of the empire. Also, they develop a predator/prey sense which poses a significant threat. Once the Fire Nation picks a target, that target will be hunted down and slaughtered. Very few has survived an encounter with the violent Fire Nation and that fact still continues. Their slogan: "Rage and fury are the road to dominance." Their Fire Fal'Cie is Brynhildr and their role is the Commando.
-Fire's natural opposite and unlike its counterpart, the Water Nation uses their brains instead of brawns. Known as the Jackals, they are very smart, strategic, and clever on the battlefield. Aside from providing support to the Fire Nation, these L'Cie use deception, traps, and intimidation to lure and eliminate stronger enemies. The best part is that your threat will never know what hit them. No matter how critical the situation is for the Water Nation, they will eventually find a way to seize victory. Their slogan: "Knowledge is the key to victory." Their Water Fal'Cie is Leviathan and their role is the Ravager.
-Air's natural opposite and with a "rocky" sense of nature, the Earth Nation are the guardians of the empire. They have a virtually impenetrable defense which frustrates desperate enemies to quit. They earned the title of Hunters for their acts of bravery and sacrifice. With a sensible heart, these L'Cie not only look out for themselves, they will rescue the other L'Cie from certain devastation. Aside from being indestructible shields, they can also become deadly weapons in their own way. Their nature also bore their slogan: "A good defense is a good offense." Their Earth Fal'Cie is Alexander and their role is the Sentinel.
-Earth's natural opposite and these L'Cie have all the characteristics of the eagle, the best sky predator in the world. The Air Nation would rain down pain and certain devastation on any type of enemy. These aerial aces also earned the title of Drones because they always assert their dominance in the air. Like Earth, they become guardians in their own way. In natural conditions, the Air Nation was born to soar and to never be shot down. Enemies who encounter the Air Nation are often confused and put at a disadvantage. They also have their slogan: "Never wound what you can't see." Their Air Fal'Cie is Bahamut and their role is the Saboteur.
-One of the two new nations of the Pulse/Sanctum L'Cie. This nation combines traits of both Fire and Water. Known as the Skirmishers, these L'Cie are not only dangerous but clever as well. However, they are almost as aggressive and as smart as their parent nations but the balance does make them unpredictable. Therefore, their enemies often have difficulty reading their next move. So their slogan is: "If one fails, try something new." Their Ice Fal'Cie is Shiva and their role is the Medic.
-The second nation that enters the elemental kingdom of the Pulse/Sanctum L'Cie. Like Ice, this nation was born from both Earth and Air. Bearing the title of the Engineer, these L'Cie can still be difficult to penetrate. Almost as defensive like their parent nations, the balance, however, also makes them unpredictable. In addition, they are a decent "Jack of all trades" to ensure that no L'Cie gets left behind. Furthermore, they attack and defend at the same time. This bores their slogan: "There is no 'I' in team." Their Thunder Fal'Cie is Odin and their role is the Synergist. Sometimes, some people refer these L'Cie as Lightning.
-The third element to enter the elemental kingdom which is now accepted by the lore. They bear the title of the Prophets because they have vast knowledge of the philosophy of peace and balance. Light L'Cie offer protection to known concorders and other defenseless neutralites. They are also responsible for ensuring that every concorder and neutralite works together and settles their differences. With any hope, the Light nation will help birth New Liberty which is the collection of clan who believe in L'Cie values and beliefs. Therefore, their slogan reads: "A house divided against itself cannot stand". Their role is the Illuminator and their Fal'Cie is Carbuncle.
-The fourth element to enter the elemental kingdom which is now accepted by the lore. Dark Nation L'Cie are very crafty and resourceful. Known as the Elites, they infiltrate other clans and neutralites to gain knowledge of their plans and to sabotage them from the inside. The Dark nation is also responsible for maintaining an undercover presence which means that they cannot be seen in contact with the L'Cie empire unless it is safe. Code names will be issued to prevent spies from learning their names. Therefore, their slogan reads: "Sometimes, the best hiding place is in plain sight". The role is the Nebulator and their Fal'Cie is Barthandelus.
