Character Description: Cloud Strife

Cloud was a young man who wanted to be in SOLDIER. But though injected with Mako, he lacked the ideal attributes to be in ShinRa and thus became ShinRa MP. But all that changed when his former idol, Sephiroth, lost his mind, resulting with Cloud becoming a test subject for the next few years in the "Sephiroth Copy" project to create a new soldier to replace Sephiroth. Though it was really meant to confirm another of Hojo's theories, the Reunion. However, Cloud was labeled a "reject".

The combination of both Jenova's cells and Cloud's own inner demons caused him to believe that he was SOLDIER. He's mainly quiet, stubborn, and doesn't seem to worry about what's going on around him. As a favor to Tifa, his childhood sweetheart who knew the truth to some extent, Cloud joined AVALANCHE in their anti-ShinRa campaign. Both his standing with the eco-terrorist group and his meeting with Tifa resulted in Cloud learning the truth and facing Sephiroth yet again.

During the two-year period after Meteor, Cloud worked for Tifa in a self-employed company called 'Strife Delivery Service', located in the new 7th Heaven built at Edge which also functions as an orphanage for children affected by the Geostigma. He also left the Buster Sword in the ground on the cliff that Zack died on; the cliff that is right outside Midgar. Cloud's new sword is called First Tsurugi, and it can disassemble into six smaller swords which he stores in the two side-compartments of his new bike, Fenrir. Cloud soon began to close himself from the rest of the world and his close friends, who fought alongside him two years ago. His reason was a combination of his guilt and Geostigma infection on his left arm (hidden under the black cloak). He now resides in Aeris's Church in the Midgar ruins.

However, Cloud, with help from Aeris's spirit and their friends, overcame both of these threats to his being when he fought the Remnants of Sephiroth, and Sephiroth himself in a final battle.

Note: The cell phone Cloud uses in the movie is the Panasonic P900iV which is only available in Japan and the color is officially called Cloud Black in honor of the character.

Character Description: Cloud Strife

Once a mercenary of SOLDIER two years ago, now Cloud works for a self-employed company called 'Strife Delivery Service', located in 7th Heaven, Sector 7, which also functions as an orphanage for children affected by the Geostigma. Working alongside Tifa, his childhood sweetheart, Cloud remains hidden in his own world, and removes his presence away from his close friends, who fought alongside him two years ago. His reason is the infection of Geostigma on his left arm (hidden under the black cloak). He now resides in Aeris' Church in Sector 5.

He's mainly quiet, stubborn, and doesn't seem to worry about what's going on around him. He also decided to gave up fighting after believing he had become weak and couldn't protect anyone anymore. However, when a mysterious man mentions the name 'Sephiroth', he brings his mind back into reality and decides to find out the presence of his 'so-called' brothers, Kadaj and Company.

His new Buster Swords (and I mean 'many Buster Swords') have a unique fusing function, allowing more strength in the attack when swung... funny how weight is considered unimportant. Cloud also learned the 'Double Sword' Technique, letting him use 2 Buster Swords in both hands, which is useful when 2 enemies are attacking him at the same time. When not using the other swords, they are stored in his 'Fenrir' Motorbike seen at the beginning with him, which also can be used as a shield against bullets.


Character Description: Cloud Strife

This Mercenary-for-hire-turned-Delivery-Boy is now trying to save the planet from a deadly new illness called Geostigma that torments the survivors of Meteor. He no longer wields the huge, kickass Buster Sword, as after they escaped from Hojo's messed-up experiments performed on them in Shinra Mansion, he left the Buster Sword in the ground on the cliff that Zack died on; the cliff that is right outside Midgar. Cloud's new sword is called First Tsurugi, and it can disassemble into six smaller swords which he stores in the two side-compartments of his new bike, Fenrir.

Cloud now has to save the planet from three new enemies that, like Sephiroth, have silver hair. The names of these three, from oldest to youngest, are Loz, Yazoo, and Kadaj. These three are "brothers" searching for their "mother" Jenova. Anyone see a pattern here? Silver-haired hotties looking for their "mother" whose name is Jenova? Not just a coincidence if you ask me. Will Cloud be able to stop them from destroying the rest of humanity before the Geostigma does? Or will these three bad guys kick his butt?
