The backstories are mostly flashbacks to the time of Noctis’ youth. Episode 2 shows Prompto as a chubby kid who was asked to be friends with Noctis after saving the dog of a noble named Lunafreya. But because Prompto was chubby and had no self-confidence, he thought he didn’t deserve to be Noctis? friend. So he started jogging and went on a diet until he finally got slim during high school.

Gladiolus, on the other hand, was assigned to train and protect the young prince. The two grew closer when Gladiolus found out that Noctis protected Gladiolus? younger sister, Iris, when she went out of the palace to chase a cat. Noctis took the blame for her actions and was even grounded for it. Gladiolus only found out after Iris told him the truth, perhaps out of the guilt she felt for Noctis. Because of this, Gladiolus felt indebted to Noctis and never looked at him as a bratty child anymore.

This animated series sheds light on how the four characters got together and how they all ended up as good friends. They goof around at times but in the end, they all got each other’s back – ?whether it?s the empire chasing them, hunting down giant beasts, or even just camping out and preparing for dinner. They are all ready to stick together for anything. Episode 5 is still yet to be released. But seeing how the series is going now, it’ll be worth the wait even with the delayed release of the Final Fantasy XV game itself.
