|“||Goddess of Ice. The Glacian's place among the Six lies opposite that of the Infernian, Ifrit. Roused suddenly from hibernation in Ghorovas Rift, the Frostbearer brought the chill wind of death to bear on half the imperial army before suffering her own corporeal demise.||„|

Shrouded in mystery, she arrived in Tenebrae on the occasion of Lunafreya's birth and has remained by her side ever since, watching over her and guiding her as she grew. Gentiana prefers to not interfere with the everyday occurrences of the mortal world, seeking only to guide the King and the Oracle along their respective paths.||„|
|~ Gentiana's Dossier.|
Shiva, also known as the Glacian, is an Astral in Final Fantasy XV. Out of the Six she is the most friendly and compassionate toward mankind and acts as a Messenger of the gods to mortals. Prince Noctis forges a pact with her in Chapter 12.
Shiva was not always fond of mortals; she used to dislike humans for the fleeting nature of their lives, and how they cling to hopes and dreams. Witnessing compassion and benevolence in others warmed her heart.
