"SOLDIER 2nd Class Zack, on the job!"
—Zack Fair

Childhood and Early Life

Zack, born in the town of Gongaga, had childhood dreams of joining SOLDIER to become a 1st Class like the legendary Sephiroth. At the age of thirteen, Zack left Gongaga, without even telling his parents, and joined the Shinra Electric Power military forces.

Entering SOLDIER

By October of 0000, he had reached SOLDIER 2nd Class under the tutelage of SOLDIER 1st Class Angeal Hewley. Angeal's words of wisdom and strong sense of honor had a profound effect on Zack, who wanted to be just like his mentor. During his time in SOLDIER, Zack befriended 2nd Class SOLDIERKunsel, who guided him in the ways of Shinra. Zack works under DirectorLazard Deusericus

 in the 49th Floor of Shinra HQ, along with many other SOLDIER members.

War With Genesis

"Angeal would never betray us! Never!"
—Zack Fair to Sephiroth


"Hey, would you say I became a hero?"
—Zack to Cloud


At the end of September (0007), while Zack and Cloud head back towards Midgar, a massive army of Shinra Troops awaits them. Despite Cissnei and Tseng's attempts to save Zack first, the Shinra army attacks. A Shinra sniper attempts to assassinate Cloud, but Zack notices this and tells Cloud to get away, causing the sniper to miss his mark, starting the battle. Zack fights hard against overwhelming odds. However, the enemy is just too many, and despite all of Zack's SOLDIER training (presumably, defeating not all, but most of the army, considering there is apparently only a handful of soldiers left in contrast to the vast amount of enemies facing him earlier), he is defeated. In the original Final Fantasy VII, in the flashback, there are only two Shinra soldiers and one commander, who shoot Zack by surprise. Riddled with bullets, and his Digital Mind wave destroyed, Zack is barely alive when Cloud awakens and comes to him. Zack hands the Buster Sword to him, like Angeal handed the Buster Sword to Zack four years earlier. He tells Cloud to carry on his dreams, and be his "living legacy". As Cloud wanders off towards Midgar, Zack looks at the sky as the sun begins emerge and shine, remembering how scared Aerith was of such a beautiful thing. He then sees Angeal descending from the sky, two white wings outstretched, finally a free spirit. Zack says that he 
wants Angeal's wings too and takes Angeal's outstretched hand, proceeding thus into the Lifestream. As Cloud continues on his journey, Zack tells him to say hi to Aerith for him, and then asks the question "Hey, would you say I became a hero?" echoing his once called "unattainable" dream of becoming a hero.  
                  Cloud Strife

Cloud Strife is a main protagonist in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII, appearing as the main protagonist in both Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. He also appears in the spin-off games Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus and Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- as a supporting character.



An arrogant and proud swordsman at first, believing himself to be a member of an elite warrior unit called SOLDIER, Cloud discovers that the memories of who he was were not his own and, with the help of his friends, learns that there is more to being a hero than possessing physical strength and fame.

Angeal Hewley




Angeal Hewley
"Embrace your dreams. If you want to be a hero you need to have dreams... and honor."
—Angeal Hewley

Angeal Hewley (アンジール・ヒューレー Anjīru Hyūrē) is a 1st Class SOLDIER, approximately 25 years old. He is the son of Gillian Hewley, created by Dr. Hollander for Project G.. He plays the role of Zack Fair's mentor in Crisis core, and passes down the Buster Sword to him. His true character is stoic and serious, but he has a playful side, giving Zack the nickname "Zack the Puppy". Angeal gets along well with the 1st Classes, Sephiroth and Genesis. He bears two white wings on the right side of his back, which seems to cause him some uneasiness as he considers them the traits of a monster. He has a small fanclub in Crisis Core, called the Keepers of Honor. He is voiced by Kazuhiko Inoue in Japanese, and Josh Gilman in English.


"Zack, I am perfect. A"


Angeal Penance.
Angeal turns back to Zack, and explains to him that he is nothing more than a perfect monster, and for him, it is possible to pass his traits and abilities to other people. Interrupting, Hollander adds that Angeal developed a two way conduit, which means that he has completely received Jenova's ability to absorb other creatures' traits and implant his own into monsters.



Zack listens to Angeal's last words.
Angeal spoke to Zack, and asked him if he remembered their promise, that they would fight against anything that causes suffering on the world. He replies that he does, but Angeal does not cause suffering. Angeal tells him that he caused his own suffering, summoning several differentAngeal
Clones drop from above. Though Dr. Hollander shouts to him to stop, warning him he cannot assimilate the creatures all at once, Angeal forcefully pushes Hollander away as he uses the monsters to turn himself into a chimera composite called Angeal Penance. Zack stands confused as the monster stretches out his trident and scratches Zack on the face. Zack realizes he has no choice but to fight. He goes through one of the toughest battles of his life, mentally and physically. But somehow he makes it through, and defeats Angeal.


Defeated, Angeal lies dying and speaks to Zack his last words. He tells him he did well, and that he is counting on him to do the rest. He gives his Buster Sword to Zack, and tells him that it is for him to keep. His life ends with the words: "Protect your honor, always." 

Genesis Rhapsodos

Genesis from Crisis Core.
"My soul, corrupted by vengeance, hath endured torment to find the end of the journey, in my own salvation and your eternal slumber."
—Genesis Rhapsodos

Genesis Rhapsodos (ジェネシス ・ラプソードス, Jeneshisu Rapusōdosu), also known as G, is a character in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- and Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-


In the Japanese versions of Dirge of Cerberus and Crisis Core, Genesis is voiced by Camui Gackt


Appearance and Personality

Genesis' original concept artwork.
Gackt, the Japanese musician/singer, whose appearance Genesis' was built after.

Genesis's physical appearance is based on Gackt, who is one of the most famous Japanese Pop/Rock idols. Gackt also wrote and performed Dirge of Cerberus's theme song, "Redemption" and actually wears the Genesis costume in the music video, though his hairstyle has changed.

Beyond this, Genesis's design bears similarities to Sephiroth, including the long coat, black clothing underneath, black boots, shoulder guards, and a large sword. Genesis is right-handed and bears a large wing on his left side, in contrast to Sephiroth, who is left-handed and has a wing on his right side. While Sephiroth's uniform and design are predominantly black and white, Genesis's is red and black. Gackt had a small amount of input on the costume design, mostly to ensure it would allow for easy movement, but also to help settle on the color scheme, which had previously been intended to be either white or black.

Crisis Core's beginning portrays Genesis as a deserter, arrogant and childish. At first, he seems to be a simple character, but as the story progresses, the conflict within Genesis becomes increasingly visible. Genesis was adopted, causing him to feel betrayed by both his true and false parents, one of the reasons for his departure from SOLDIER. His main source of turmoil comes from the secrets of his birth he discovers after the injury he sustains during training, that leads him to resent Shinra and all those associated with it. He takes pride in the handsome figure he cuts, his magnificent fighting style and the enthusiastic popularity it garners him, however he does not like mingling directly with people, and only opens himself up to his companions Sephiroth and Angeal.

Genesis is obsessed with LOVELESS, a famous poem that has been adapted into numerous plays. According to the "Study Group," Genesis read LOVELESS at a young age and it became his favorite work, and he has spent his entire life since trying to decipher its meaning. In the later portions of Crisis Core Genesis seems to take the words of LOVELESS literally - believing to have discovered its meaning, he considers himself, Zack, Sephiroth and his friend Angeal characters in the poem, and believes that by fulfilling its words he can obtain the "gift of the goddess" spoken of in the poem, which will cure his degradation. 


"There was one SOLDIER named Sephiroth, who was better than the rest. But when he found out about the terrible experiments that made him he began to hate Shinra. And then, over time, he began to hate everything."
—Marlene Wallace

Sephiroth is the primary antagonist of Crisis Core, and one of the major villains of its extended universe. A prototype Soldier and the strongest alive, Sephiroth is initially revered for his strength and hailed as a hero, until he learns and misinterprets his origins. Believing himself as the last of the Ancients, Sephiroth enacts a vendetta against mankind, with the ultimate goal of becoming a god and controlling the Planet. Sephiroth's goals later on include defeating Cloud Strife, who has consistently foiled his plans. To this end, Sephiroth is frequently depicted as Cloud's arch-nemesis.
