|Game||Tales of Destiny 2|
Fortuna is first mentioned when Kyle Dunamis and Reala travel ten years in the future and Kyle notices her name engraved on a statue in Aigrette. Reala explains that Fortuna is a living deity of the era, worshiped by the people. Her following is known as the "Sacred Order of Fortuna" and is highly prevalent in this era. The group first meets Fortuna in Kalviola, where she prepares to grant them their wish of returning to their own time. During the conversation, Fortuna speaks directly to Reala and comments how she has chosen to take a different path from Elrane. Fortuna then urges Reala, though her path differs from Elrane, to never forget their goals. The group quickly realizes that Reala and Elrane are creations of Fortuna, each born to save humanity in different ways. Although the group and Fortuna's ideologies clash, she agrees to send them in the past ten years.
Later, in the distorted timeline, the group finds that Elrane has gained power and now leads the Sacred Order of Fortuna. In this dystopia, people are confined to dome-like cities, unaware of the events happening on the outside. Although Elrane, in the name of Fortuna, finds this ignorant bliss ideal, the group rejects the flawed system. After Elrane's death, Fortuna appears before the group, asking Reala how she intends to save the world. Reala, in turn, rejects the purpose of her creation, claiming that people are capable of discovering happiness for themselves. However, Fortuna argues that humans are incapable of achieving happiness through their own efforts, prompting the group into battle.
During the battle, Fortuna's dialogue stresses her role in the human experience—that she was born from the desires of people, and that her mission is to guide humans to happiness. She beckons why the group wishes to kill her if they are human themselves, capable of experiencing the ignorant bliss she offers. Fortuna notes the cycle of stories—that when one ends, another begins. She claims that a new existence offers a life better than the group's own, as well as that their existing "story" has no purpose, making it a failed experiment. Kyle counters Fortuna's argument by emphasizing humans' role in struggling to create a history, rather than it being created for them. When the group manages to defeat Fortuna, she disappears, though her voice later speaks to Kyle in a haunting echo that taunts him to vie for the power of the goddess.
Appearance and Personality
Fortuna bears a heavenly appearance, dressing in a flowing teal robe with white accents and a feathered collar. She has blond hair that is swept back and divided into two long strands, as well as golden eyes, red lips, and a symbolic pattern etched onto her forehead. Fortuna's ethereal look is accompanied by a dark personality, however. Her blind goal for universal happiness is paved with a destructive path that means the end of life as humans now know it. Despite this, Fortuna fails to understand how her views can be considered immoral by the protagonists, and she beckons them time and time again not to resist the utopia she envisions.
