Shelke’s special ability [Synaptic Net Drive]. Because of this Shelke obtained Lucrecia’s memories and incorporated them into herself.

[Shalua] Cannot afford to die before she manages to recover/extricate Shelke. To Shalua who had lost her parents at a young age, her sister, Shelke, was her only kin and more important to her than her own life. [BC] Her eye and arm appears to be in a safe condition during BC.

A DG member who has taken the name “The Immaculate”, and has an abundance of overpowering strength and charisma. He was able to free the DG after they were locked away during the Meteor Crisis, and calling his subordinates the “Reapers”, he had them commit mass murder all over the world. Is his goal to merge with Omega, who takes the life of the Planet and flies into space…?

A force feared by the administrators/higher ups, he was restrained at the pedestal designated/inscribed as the ‘Throne’. However, he eventually started the revolt together with Shelke and the rest, and became DG’s greatest leader. Weiss, who appeared before Vincent at Midgar’s Underground Number 0 Mako Reactor. The thing overlapping that figure . . . seems to be the shadow of that mad scientist!

First Person Pronoun: [Ware]
Voice Actor: DC – Tessho Genda

A massive Tsviet named “Azul the Cerulean.” He has an unnatural tenacity with his great strength and in a search for a truly great battle he wanted to join SOLDIER. Carrying a large cannon around like a pistol, it seems that his specialty is acting like a walking tank, but his true power lies in releasing his Limiter and transforming into a beast form.

He enjoys his “Death Matches” and disregards the seriousness of any fight; fighting to him is a natural thing. The origin of his name comes from the appearance of his blue hair that flares around in battle much like the mane of a lion. for battle he killed the other candidates and later challenged the newly recruited Turk to fight him.

A Tsviet with blood-red hair who calls herself “Rosso the Crimson.” She became a DG through experiments to elevate a human body to its limits, thus bringing it closer to immortality. She has incredible battle skill, but is somewhat emotionally unstable, gaining great pleasure from cutting people up and creating a bloodbath.

With the massacre of mankind being her supreme desire, she takes pleasure in killing both friends and foe alike, thus earning her the name of ‘The Worst Crimson.’ Born in DG and isolated from the outside world, Rosso’s capability as a battle machine was all that had been ever asked of her. She was also yet another of ShinRa’s victims.

Gender: Male
Height: 175cm
Age: 23
First Person Pronoun: [Boku]
Voice Actor: DC – Ryotaro Okiayu

A Tsviet who swallows up everything using his body filled with the power of darkness, “Nero the Sable”. He was born when stagnant Lifestream was planted in an embryo. As the power in his hands endangered all around him, they were chained up a long time ago by DG’s overseers and even now, having gained freedom, he keeps them like that. He is Weiss’s brother, born from the same mother.

Nero’s darkness was born from the condensation of stagnant Lifestream which Grimoire researched. Weiss, the brother whom Nero blindly loves. White Weiss and Black Nero exist as two sides of one and the same body.
