Ignis Stupeo Scientia (14 May 1986) is a Lucian politician currently serving as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom for two consecutive terms; First in 20 March 2015, then again on 19 August 2018 during the Imperial Crisis.

Scientia was born in Blackhall, Lucis. His father was a close friend of the Lucis Royal Family that the young Ignis often played with Prince Noctis. The two would have a very close bond to this day. Later, he finished his college studies in the University of St. Georgius under the degree of the Bachelor of Science Major in Political Science. Fascinated with politics, he was engaged with the activities of the National Progressive Party. During the Second Lucis Civil War, Scientia was forced to flee to Gallia-Bruhl together with the Royal Family. While in exile, he joined the NPP and was made a Member of Parliament for Mulberry at the age of 22. He returned to the UK in 2011, a year after the Civil War began. Scientia was popular in the party and was known for proposing various laws such as strengthening Labour unions, empowering women's rights, a law abolishing racial discrimination, and among others. However, his proposals were often frowned upon by the ruling Conservative Party but was welcomed by the Labour Party.

In 2014, he was elected as the Leader of the NPP during the 2014 National Progressive Party leadership election at the age of 28, making him the youngest person to lead a political party in Lucian History. During his preparations for the 2015 general elections, the popularity of the NPP soared. Scientia, while not being the most charismatic political leader swayed the Lucian workforce, which consituted 60% of the eligible voters with his various trips across the Lucis Isles. When election came, the Conservative Party won 257 seats while the NPP won 198 seats, overtaking the Labour party at 157 seats. After some negotiations, the Labour party chose to enter into a minority coalition with the NPP with Scientia as Prime Minister, thus Scientia was sworn in 20 March 2015, ending the exchange of rule between the Conservative and Labour Parties.

In one of his first enactments as Prime Minister, Ignis introduced reforms and repealed various policies introduced by his predecessors. Scientia raised taxes and increased spending on education, healthcare, and on social security. He abolished the private ownership of various companies, particularly those that were considered a regular necessity such as water and electricity and returned public ownership of these utilities. He abolished the internal markets had plagued the Lucis' National Health Care Service. In one of the most remarkable achievements, he managed to carry out one of his dream proposals of strengthening labour unions and rights of workers. He also introduced the national minimum wage. His ministry ended the remaining remnants of racial segregation and discrimination with the Lucian National Law of 2016 that placed a heavy burden and capital punishment on discrimination. Child poverty was reduced further. Social reforms included changes to the LBC charter and other media outlets to insulate it from political meddling. The Freedom of Information Act of 2016 was passed at about the same time. The UK's economy boomed with Ignis further encouraging bigger trade agreements with the Commonwealth realms.

In terms of Constitutional reform, his policies extended to the process of devolution; Niflheim, Accordo, and Tristain were given greater autonomy and powers. His reforms and changes were bought about to these devolved countries. This reform significantly changed the United Kingdom into a more federal state similar to that of Rubrum and the Erebonian Empire. Overall, Ignis sought the reintroduction of the policies that were created by former PM Kureo Mado. Ignis' reforms bought about the growth of the UK as a leading trade centre in Europa. Relations between the UK and the Atlantic Federation improved drastically.

During the Imperial Crisis, Ignis was one of the main figureheads of the Allied nations and asserted the UK's role as keeping the security in place in Europa.
