Rufus Shinra and the Turks Character Bios from Dengeki PS3

by April 15, 2009 0 comments

Hitoshura’s next profile translation from April’s Dengeki PS3 is for Rufus Shinra and The Turks, who play a prominent role in FFVII Advent Children Complete. With this profile, have the creators dropped a revealing hint to Dengeki’s editors regarding Rufus’s new intentions in ACC and DC? Well… we’ll leave that for you to decide.


Rufus Shinra

The son of President Shinra who created the Shinra Company in a single generation. An elitist and prideful young man, he is truly skilled and able. He is also very ambitious, and when he was younger he seemed to have done everything he could to overthrow his father, the head of the company. He also shows a ruthless side; for instance, when his father was killed by Sephiroth, he seemed not to care at all and was glad to take up the mantle of president.

In the battle for the life of the planet, while they were both pursuing Sephiroth, he stands opposed to Cloud’s team. In the end he appears to have died in an attack by the Diamond WEAPON, but it seems the luck of the devil was on his side, and he managed to make it out alive.

After the Meteor crisis, even though he is infected with Geostigma, he gathers the surviving members of the Turks and from behind the scenes works towards the revival of the world. He is honest in this motive. However, he is also not a man who would stop there. In the unseen corners of his heart, perhaps he sees a clear vision of the world restored, and under the control of the Shinra Company…

The Turks

The Shinra Company’s general affairs and investigative department, commonly known as the Turks. There are 4 primary members: Tseng, the calm and collected chief; Reno, who makes use of his speed during battle; Rude, a quiet and powerful man with his trademark sunglasses and skinhead; and Elena, the newest recruit and sole female member. Each are an expert in combat, and carried out any mission given to them without fail. In particular, Reno and Rude have often worked as a team since their early days, and together they show a brilliant display of teamwork. Previously, they had stood in the way of Cloud’s team, on the command of Rufus Shinra.

In the Meteor crisis the Shinra Company, for all intents and purposes, is destroyed, but even after that they follow Rufus. However, when investigating the Northern Cave, Elena and Tseng are taken prisoner by Kadaj’s gang. Meanwhile Reno and Rude, working together once again, fight alongside Cloud and the others. During the battle in Edge they corner Yazoo and Loz, but they leave the final battle in the hands of Cloud’s team.

Appears as one of the VIPs of Shinra. He is unsatisfied with his position as vice-president, and aims to overthrow his father. As a result he brings dangers upon the Shirna Company, and under the pretext of being on a ‘long-term business trip’, he is put under a lenient confinement.

Before Crisis -FFVII-
As the main characters are new members of the Turks, the other members such as Tseng, Reno and Rude appear as their superiors. And in chapter 22, “A Threat Reaching Even to the Heavens,” Elena appears when she is still a student. Furthermore, the present head of the Turks is a character called Verdot, who is also Tseng’s mentor.


Crisis Core -FFVII-
Reno and Rude also appear in “CC,” battling monsters in Sector 8. They apparently also met the SOLDIER Zack. And Tseng, during the investigations into the events revolving around Genesis, was assigned on missions with Zack and the other characters.

      Ditto that. Rufus truely being on the side of good just doesn’t work for him. He’s so much better trying to be the one pulling the strings so that he can be in control. XD
