Verdot

The director of the Turks, Tseng and Cissnei’s boss. He has a strict personality and a professional attitude to his work. A long-time employee of Shinra from the time when they were still a small weapons
manufacturer, and President Shinra has deep trust in him. Although in this game he is only referred to as ‘Director’–he doesn’t appear himself nor is his actual name used–he is a key character in “BC”. He commands the efforts against AVALANCHE, but after learning that his daughter Elfe is with AVALANCHE, he leaves Shinra and, as her father, does whatever he can to save her.


Aerith’s Ribbon

The pink ribbon given to Aerith in Scene 04-09 as a ‘one day anniversary gift’. In “FFVII” and “BC” she wears the White Materia, a memento of her mother, with this ribbon. And in “AC”, those who fought with Aerith in the Jenova War and Barret’s daughter Marlene had a pink ribbon somewhere on their bodies so they wouldn’t forget her.


Hero

While it does carry the general meaning of ‘hero’, many times in this world it refers to Sephiroth specifically. In particular with the tremendous media exposure during the Wutai War, this raised Sephiroth’s profile as a hero.


Kalm

A town on the outskirts of Midgar and, possibly as a counter-measure against monsters, the perimeter of the town is surrounded by a tall wall. In this game only its name appears, but the town has seen many
calamities, and in “BC” the town is destroyed due to a misfiring by the Shinra Army, and the survivors are taken to the Shinra Manor and made into test samples by Shinra, who intended to cover up the
incident. In “DC” the residents are massacred by the Deepground SOLDIER attack, and the children are abducted to be used for creating the mako needed to call forth Omega.

    WTF? Why don’t you guys translate the “park date” scene. This is bias Cloti BS at its best. What? TOO AFRAID to admit that Cloud and Aerith went on a date. Does that ruin your love Cloti since Cloud and Tifa have been on absolutely 0?…

    nah Im just kidding, it’s me Quexinos :monster:

    Good job with this Hito. I appreciate the hard work ^_^ I also love that Zack and Aerith pic on the cover, it’s sooo cute ^_^

    Actually I’m confused, how can Crisis Core start in 2000 but BC start in 0001?

      Crisis Core starts in [ μ ] – εуλ 2000, Before Crisis starts in [ ν ] – εуλ 0001.

      To phrase it in common English, Crisis Core starts at the end of the “Mu Era”, and Before Crisis starts at the beginning of the “Nu Era”.

      They never explain the reason for the new era name, but my guess would be that the Shinra Company enacted a year zero when they defeated Wutai.

      That seems needlessly convoluted on the creators’ part. I wonder why they would do that, especially since people are going to be confused as to when exactly CC takes place before FF7. I mean, the hardcore researchers will know but the average gamer won’t.

    Icicle Inn/Lodge is on an island?

    What?

      Well it’s on the northern continent, but I wouldn’t really call that an island. O_o

      Ryushikaze 26 November, 2009, 09:03

      In the same way that Greenland is an Island. It’s not big enough to be a continent unto itself just yet.

    • punkiemonkie
      punkiemonkie 26 November, 2009, 09:54

      Makes sense, but it still seems odd. I don’t remember it ever being referred to as an island in the game, but it is a heck of a lot smaller than the big continents.

    Hahahaha!

    Loads of pink arguments, rendered utterly moot by the guidebook.
    TTLY a different ribbon!

      Oh, there was a Bruhaha that Aerith wasn’t wearing pink because of the promise, and that the ribbon she wears in FF7 was not the same ribbon she got from Zack in CC, and it was all related to the LTD, but it’s gloriously moot now.

      Oh, haha. Amazing what people will do to deny the canon material. 😉

    It seriously makes my day whenever these get posted, thank you so much for your work!

    rofl I love the blurb about the “portable terminals” and the radio towers that somehow still work. that is some GREAT service! I mean, being able to get messages while in a cave/basement, after your phone has been soaking in mako for 4 years? I think I want a portable terminal.

    Awesome job Hito. These updates have been just pouring in. It’s lots of little information that’s been filling in the gaps, and giving a really detailed image of everything in the games. Thanks a ton!!!

      ROTFL. Well..he learned it from Zack apparently.

      Hell, if all it takes is going to a park and talking to someone to count it as a date, what the hell does that make the whole Lifestream sequence between Cloud and Tifa? :mon:

    Thankyou very much for all your hard work, Hito. It’s good to have you back.

    But I want to point two things:

    1) IIRC Yuffie’s father is named Godo, not Goto.

    2) In the Black Materia section, the text looks like is not formatted very well.

    This has been such an awesome series, hito. Thanks again for all of this, and great job.

    I really like the entries on Corneo’s mansion and Zack’s flirting.

    I want to point out that you accidentally wrote ‘feature’ instead of ‘feather’ in the ‘Zack’s Mental Image’ section.

    Thanks and keep up the great work, Hito.
