by May 29, 2009 25 comments

What? You thought this project was forgotten? With the rush of news regarding Advent Children Complete, we had to shift gears, but during the wait for the western release of ACC, we figured we would continue where we left off. Hitoshura has translated the remaining character profiles for the main characters of FFVII from the FFVII Ultimania Omega Early Material Files. Enjoy reading their potential scenarios and back stories.


yuffie-red

Yuffie

Job: Ninja (assassin) Age: 25 Weapon: knives, boomerangs, origami (throwing objects)

A kunoichi. Who’s a little foul-mouthed.

“Argh! Just quit running ’round, sit your ass down and think about it!”

A young girl. As agile as a mouse. A bounty hunter. There are wanted posters strewn around, but each time you see one her appearance, age, and bounty is different. An Ex-SOLDIER?

-=Episode=-

::Introduction:: Right from the opening, wanted posters for Yuffie are scattered around towns. Every time you see one, her appearance and age are different.

::Getting her to join:: Face her in battle. Or, she attacks Cloud while he’s sleeping in an inn. You can get Yuffie to join you any time after passing Elm (*note: the early name for Kalm). Yuffie’s appearance (and level) is determined at the point she first joins you. This is based on the last poster you saw. When you want to get your preferred Yuffie on your team, just look at the poster you want last.

::Motive:: Yuffie wants money (reason mentioned below) so she became a bounty hunter. She was drawn by the large bounties for Cloud and Sephiroth.

Cloud: “Why are you after me?”

Yuffie: “As if! I just want the money.”

Cloud: “If I bring you in now, I can get your bounty. So two bounty hunters are after each other, huh.”

Barret: “I don’t know why you want money so bad, but if you help us out you might find yourself a bigger bounty.”

Yuffie: “You don’t mean… Sephiroth?”

Barret: “Now that’s a bounty hunter, keepin’ in the know.”

Yuffie: “I’m a ninja, Yuffie from the Kisaragi family.”

Barret: “A ninja? Now I get it.”

●Events in Wutai
{Characters in Wutai}

Izayoi…… High priestess of the Wutaia faith. An old woman. Not just Izayoi, but all of the most important positions in the Wutaia faith are traditionally dominated by women. Their god is also, of course, a woman. Due to the young age of the hierarch Sasame, at present Izayoi is effectively the leader of Wutai. Wishes to preserve the tradition lifestyle, not reliant on technology. Yuffie’s father left Yuffie in Izayoi’s care, and she raised the girl.

Sasame…… Officially Sasame-no-Himemiko. The 89th hierarch of Wutaia. 15 years old. Because she grew up pampered, she is slightly spoilt. She isn’t happy about Izayoi treating her like a child, and her showing favour to Yuffie.

Sera…… An representative sent from Shinra. Actually a wicked woman plotting Wutai’s destruction.

Godo Kisaragi…… Yuffie’s father. He is the head of the Kisaragi family, who have served the hierarch for generations and undertake their dirty work. Presently, he is on an investigative mission in another area on the order of Izayoi.

Kasumi Kisaragi…… Yuffie’s mother. Died from an illness when Yuffie was a child.

Wutai is a temple town which developed around the Wutaia temple. Right behind the town is a large crag, and there are several massive statues resembling Guan Yin, dozens of metres high. Commonly known as the “Ten Faced Mountain.”

When you enter the Wutai town, Yuffie suddenly disappears.

Barret: “Huh? Our money, our money’s gone! Yuffie, that sneaky little…!”

They walk around town looking for Yuffie.

Townspeople: “Lady Sasame is our hierarch now. But she’s still a little girl, so it’s her mother Izayoi who actually does all the work.”

Yuffie is taking the money to a temple in the center of the town.

For several years, Shinra’s reach began to extend to Wutai. After finding out there is an abundance of mako energy in the ground below Wutai, Shinra planned to build a new mako reactor there. However, due to opposition from the conservative Izayoi and the townspeople, the project breaks down. And so Shinra hatched a plan to impose high custom charges on goods entering Wutai, and indirectly make the people of Wutai suffer. The remote town of Wutai cannot oppose Shinra through military force. So in order to save the people of Wutai, Yuffie made money and brought it back here.

Cloud: “… Why did you take the money?”

Yuffie: “I was raised at this temple since I was little. I’ve never once learnt ninjutsu from my father. I’m not accepted as a member of the Kisaragi family. But that’s not what everyone in Wutai thinks. They say it’s a cursed family, involved with dirty work. I don’t belong on either side. So if I didn’t do this, I’m scared I might lose sight of who I am…”

However, the present ruler Sasame says that Yuffie’s money is tainted money gotten through murder, and won’t even accept it. Far from it, she says that they should cooperate with Shinra, thanks to the clever persuasion of Sera, a woman sent by Shinra several months ago.

Sera: “Lady Sasame, these people are terrorists who have attacked the Shinra Company. And furthermore Yuffie is a traitor who once worked for Shinra’s SOLDIER. Lady Izayoi knew of this, but shielded Yuffie. Surely she must love this girl more than she does you…”

Yuffie and the team fall into a trap because of Sera’s scheme. With Izayoi’s assistance they get out of trouble, find evidence of the plot, and go into the temple. Yuffie faces off with Sera and defeats her. However, Sera had already launched her final plan. She aimed to blow up the Ten Faced Mountain towering over the town to destroy the town, and build a mako reactor over its ruins. As the team head for the mountain to stop the explosion, Sasame asks them a question.

Sasame: “Why are you doing this? You’re not even from this town.”

Barret: “… I know a town like this, one that was wiped out because of Shinra’s tricks. I know a stupid man who was taken in by their promises, and lost his home, his family, his future. The world only needs one idiot like that… that’s all.”

* Her position as a ‘ninja’ being fleshed out with various episodes, and the characters events in Wutai and such are quite different from the final game.

    Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally
    overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Kudos!
