The artifact represents one of a series of collectible character figures from the Final Fantasy video game franchise. Retailers sold the figures in "blind boxes," so customers did not know which character they would receive. The first volume of characters included Cloud Strife and Sephiroth from Final Fabtasy VII, Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy VIII, Vivi Ornitier from Final Fantasy IX, and Yuna and Lulu from Final Fantasy X. The series also included Zack Fair from Final Fantasy VII as a secret addition. Each character included both a colored and a metallic version, for a total of 14 possible characters.
