Sephiroth Advent Children Complete Character Bio from Dengeki PS3

by April 11, 2009 17 comments

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…

Compilation of FFVII for Sephiroth

Before Crisis -FFVII-
First appears as a legendary SOLDIER in chapter 3, “Swords Crossed in the Evening Light.” There is displays his formidable strength. And in chapter 12, “Awakening Tearing Peace Asunder,” we see his rampage in Nibelheim.

Crisis Core -FFVII-
“CC” shows Sephiroth while he was in SOLDIER, still unaware of the circumstances of his birth. It shows a more human side to him, such as using his title of hero for his own indulgence, and the conflicted seen when having to pursue Angeal and Genesis, former colleagues and friends.

    “In the end he is defeated by Cloud, but he consciousness travels the Lifestream, waiting for a chance for another Reunion.”

    I like how it refers to Kadaj, Yazoo, and Loz as his “Alter egos” as if their comic book villains or something. XD

      If you think there is a report/review of the movie there, make a topic about it in the news section.

    “…such as using his title of hero for his own indulgence…” ~ I never figured that from Crisis Core; unless once again, the English translation of the Japanese is poor. *sigh* Honestly, I didn’t see Sephiroth using his position to get over anyone else ever. 😐 I did see him as a gossip, and moody as hell, but not a snob… Interesting.

      Well him using his position to get all the free shampoo to use on his hair is certainly using his title as hero for his own indulgence.

      Ohoho, I still find that funny. The mighty Sephiroth, having earthly desires such as wanting his hair to be soft und smelling like peaches. :wacky:

      Besides the champoo, he also used his position to refuse missions.

      Actually the right to veto missions is the right of every First Class SOLDIER. From what I’ve read anyway.

      Yeah, well, they never mentioned the throngs of whores he demanded to his room every night. And altar boys.

      Or…maybe I’ve been reading the wrong fanfiction again.

      I also didn’t get the impression of “gossip” from him.

    Those are unofficial rights though and I don’t think they’d let anyone do that.
    As Zack said, they’re spoiling him too much…xD

    Seeing Sephiroth smile truly (in Crisis Core) makes me feel happy and warm. Poor guy 🙁
