And we conclude the day with the true One Winged Angel himself, Sephiroth. Thanks again hito for translating this Dengeki PS3 character profile!! Enjoy!
The strongest SOLDIER created by the Shinra Company. Distinguishing himself in the military from a young age, he was heralded a hero. There were once a few he could’ve called his friends, but on an investigative mission to Nibelheim he encountered a life form bearing the same name as his mother, within its mako reactor. And there he learned the secret of his birth. Learning that he had been created, he seeks to carry on the will of his mother Jenova, and is gripped by a desire for vengeance against the planet.
Sephiroth has been defeated by Cloud twice: once in Nibelheim, and again in the Great Northern Cave. However, he did not diffuse within the Lifestream and continued to live on, and scattered his own genes across the world. This seems to be the origin of Geostigma. And reappearing once again after Kadaj’s Reunion, he faces Cloud for a third showdown…
