“Don't be afraid. It's not death─it's a homecoming.”
A former SOLDIER: 1st class of legendary renown, he is said to have died in the line of duty in Nibelheim five years ago. This is proven untrue when he appears at the Shinra Building and absconds with a research specimen known as "Jenova." He now toys with Cloud at every opportunity, seeking to change the course of destiny and rule the planet.
