Luxerion, the first major area in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII includes a total of 13 Canvas of Prayers quests, you can complete if you wish to improve Lightning’s stats, and earn additional rewards such as adornments and Gil.
Most Canvas of Prayers quests in Luxerion dont require specific items, but to complete you need various materials that can be obtained by killing the beasts within the city; thus, you should focus on them the moment you start the video game.
The Luxerion Canvas of Prayers Quests are unlocked gradually, and can be activated by talking to Chocolina near the North Station, or to the one in Luxerion’s South Station.
The following Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII guide reveals the complete list of Canvas of Prayers quests available in Luxerion, providing additional details on how to start them, and where you should look for the ingredients required for every Canvas of Prayers side-quest in the city.
Quest 1: Revenge Is Sweet
Ooh, I hate those things, I really do! That loathsome Niblet took my boyfriend from me. If I could actually use a weapon, why, I swear Id pay it ten-fold! Perhaps a kindly soul will hear my prayer and kill the Niblet for me

Quest Item: Niblet Hairball X 6
Available: Day 1
Reward: 80 Gil, Maximum HP + 10, Strength + 1, Cute Heart

These monsters can be found everywhere in Luxerion, and you will also have to kill several during the main-quest named A Different Snow. Gather 6 hairballs and use them to complete the quest.
Quest 2: Inventive Seamstress
I wonder if youve heard of the liquid glass that can be harvested from Meonektons. I think it would make a perfect coating for cloth it would give the material a beautiful glossy sheen and make dirt and stains just fall away. Id love to try it out. But how am I going to get a sample?
Client: Seamstress Nell
Quest Item: Liquid Glass X 3
Available: Day 1
Reward: 200 Gil, Maximum HP + 10, Strength + 1, Magic + 1, Noonblue Butterfly

Quest 3: Gift Of Gratitude
Oh God, please help me! A Rotten monster has torn a great big hole in my stuffed moogle, and now I need a strip of tattered leather to repair it. Can someone please help? You see, I made it as a gift. I am greatly indebted to a certain person, and this toy was meant to pay back some of their kindness.
Client: Toy Maker
Quest Item: Tattered Leather X 8
Available: Day 1
Reward: 120 Gil, Maximum HP + 10, Magic + 1, Rangda Crest, Leyak Crest
Guide: Similar to the Niblet Hairball, the Tattered Leather is dropped by common beasts known as Gremlins.
The Gremlins are white; they look like owls and have grey wings. These beasts will attack you at night everywhere around the city.
Quest 4: A Song For God
Oh, damn this lute! Theres no way I can compose a decent hymn on this thing. Im so close to finding the perfect melody, but this cursed instrument thwarts me at every turn! Of course, if I had a big pile of demon spicules, things would be completely different. Then I could pick the perfect bone to carve out a new bridge for the lute. Gaunt bones are the best, but how am I to find any?
Client: Pious Lutist
Quest Item: Demon Spicules X 3
Available: Day 3
Reward: 180 Gil, Maximum HP + 10, Strength + 1, Snowy Spirit Wings, Masquerade Mask

Quest 5: Slay The Machine
You know the ensorcelled machine, right? Well, I think Ive found a buyer for one of its components. If you can bring the beast down and salvage the part, I can cut you in on the profits. All you have to do is fight the Gertrude and bring me its motor coil. Whaddya say? We have a deal?
Client: Warren Merchant
Quest Item: Motor Coil X 5
Available: Day 3
Reward: 150 Gil, Maximum HP+10, Strength +1, Celebritys Charm
Guide: The robot known as Gertrude is also a common enemy in Luxerion.
Most of them spawn in Mangled Hill, NE from Old Town. Try looking for them after 12 AM, to get the Motor Coil.
Quest 6: Trapped
Argh! Someone please help me! All these Niblets and Gremlins came pouring out of the Chaos and started chasing me all over the place. I wedged myself into this narrow cleft for safety, but theyre right outside the entrance and it doesnt look theyre planning on moving! Im going to starve to death in here if someone doesnt do something, and soon!
Quest Item: Niblet Hairball X 60, Tattered Leather X 80

Reward: 1800 Gil, Maximum HP + 40, Strength + 2, Magic + 5, Tinkling Bell, Crystal Feather, Ether
Guide: Since the Trapped quest requires a large number of Niblet Hairballs, you should postpone it until you get to Yusnaan.
Quest 7: Grave of a Bounty Hunter
My brother said he was going to get out of the bounty hunting trade, but what does he do but go and get himself killed by a Zomok! Him and practically everyone else in his band of reckless adventurers. Theres no bringing him back now. But at least, I wish I could kill that monster. Then Id pluck a tuft of stormdragon down from its belly and place it on my brothers tombstone.
Quest Item: Stormdragon Down X 1
Available: Starting Day 5
Reward: 800 Gil, Maximum HP + 20, Strength + 2, Magic + 1, Blue Feather Pin, Gadot’s Black Emblem

Quest 8: Revenge Has Teeth
Damn! I want revenge on the monster that slew my pal, but this sword couldnt cut through toilet paper, let alone monster hide. I asked the forge to sharpen the blade, but they tell me they need chipped fangs from Gorgonopsids, and lots of them. What am I gonna do?
Client: Sellsword Ramdall
Quest Item: Chipped Fang X 10
Available: Starting Day 5
Reward: 500 Gil, Maximum HP+20, Strength +2, Guardian Corps Badge
Guide: In Luxerion, the best place to hunt Gorgonopsids and harvest Chipped Fangs for the Revenge Has Teeth Canvas of Prayers quest is Pilgrims Causeway, the alley that connects the Old Town and the Holy District.
Quest 9: Mythical Badge
In the past, the Order issued twelve badges of merit to private citizens who made large donations to the church. What I am most interested in is the mythical 13th badge issued by the high priestess herself. Could it really exist? Has it been issued to another contributor by mistake, perhaps?
Client: Wealthy Benefactor
Quest Item: Proof of Legendary Title X 1
Available: Starting Day 3
Reward: 2000 Gil, Maximum HP + 10, Strength + 1, Magic + 1, Orange Bow Tie Adornment, Crest of Pulse Adornment
Guide: To complete Mythical Badge quest in Luxerion you need to find the Proof of Legendary Title. Starting Day 3, a series of shrines will appear within the city.
One of them on top of the stairs that lead to the entrance of the South Train Station, the second one in the plaza in front of the North Station, and the third one in the Residences area.
If you take a closer look you should see several clerics near every statue; however, to get the Proof of Legendary Title you have to find a specific cleric who gathers donations. He patrols from the South Station to the Residences, and then to the North Station.
He also has a dialogue box above his head and he wears a golden mask and a grey coat. You dont have to talk to all clerics, but instead you need to find the one collecting money.
When you do, talk to him several times, and always pay what he asks, until he gives you the Proof of Legendary Title.
Quest 10: Enchanted Brush
We have commissioned a group of devout artists to restore one of the Orders most treasured murals. But to undertake the task, they must have fine enchanted brushes. Alas, this requires demon spicules from Gaunts and stormdragon down from the belly of a Zomok not items that are easily procured!
Client: Priest Madya

Available: After you complete Quest 4: A Song for God and Quest 7: Grave of a Bounty Hunter
Reward: 1400 Gil, Maximum HP + 30, Strength + 2, Magic + 4, Lady’s Brooch Adornment, Strawberry Ice Cream Adornment
Guide: The north-western area known as Sinners Corner is where you will find Gaunts and Zomoks.
If you completed the two quests required to unlock Enchanted Brush you already know how to defeat a Zomok and a Gaunt.
Get the 10 Demon Spicules and 8 Stormdragon Downs from them.
Quest 11: Puppeteers Lament
Woe is me! Or more to the point, woe is my favorite marionette, for I have run out of the special lubricating oil I need to keep his joints moving smoothly. Normal oil simply will not do. No, no, he must have the best. The best, I say! Which means quality machine oil of the kind used on Dreadnoughts.
Client: Puppeteer Urma

Available: Starting Day 5
Reward: 700 Gil, Maximum HP + 20, Strength + 2, Magic + 1, Blue Propeller Adornment, Shooting Star Adornment

These are rare creatures and you should try to take them down the moment you see them spawn.
After you get the Quality Machine Oil, continue to kill 5 more because you will need 5 additional units of oil for the next quest.
Quest 12: Heretics Beasts
Those Etro fanatics have used dark sorcery to summon Dreadnoughts and Meonektons and are trying to use them to menace their foes. Although the heretics do not have full control of the monsters, they are still a terrible threat. Can you send them back to Chaos whence they were summoned?
Client: Grand Inquisitor
Quest Item: Quality Machine Oil X 5, Liquid Glass X 10
Available: After you complete Quest 8: Revenge Has Teeth and Quest 11: Puppeteers Lament
Reward: 1300 Gil, Maximum HP + 30, Strength + 4, Magic + 2, Warning Beacon Adornment, Gentleman’s Beard Adornment

After you kill 5, travel to The Warren and look for Meonektons; however these beasts also appear in other regions.
Quest 13: Night Patrol
So Ive been hearing talk about a lady warrior whos handy with a blade. Im not such a slouch myself maybe shes up for a little challenge? In this day and age, theres no sense fighting each other, not when there are so many monsters to hunt. What I suggest is that we have a competition to see who can bag the most Gorgonopsids and Gertrudes.
Client: Captain Deliah
Quest Item: Chipped Fang X 10, Motor Oil X 15
Available: After you complete Quest 5: Slay the Machine and Quest 8: Revenge Has Teeth
