For the A to Z Challenge, I am highlighting characters from my favorite gaming franchise: Final Fantasy. And as today's letter is C, I wouldn't dare talk about any other character than Final Fantasy VII's Cloud Strife.
A dreamer from Podunk (well, Nibelheim), Cloud wanted to grow up to be big and strong and join SOLDIER, the elite task force created by Shinra Inc. (*ahem* also the same people who mistook an alien for an Ancient, as mentioned Friday). Cloud only made it to, like, gunny sgt. or something before all Hell broke loose and Arcade Sushi's 4th greatest video game villain of all time (Sephiroth) started killing everyone (more on him later).
But Cloud overcame, actually injured Sephiroth to the point where he had to hole up in the planet, and managed to have a slight dip into Multiple Personality Disorder due to mako poisoning (the planet's magic and the reason his eyes are so blue) and most likely PTSD (more on all of that when we get to Z).
|Look at the pout.|
Honorable Mention for C:
Tomorrow, we talk about Final Fantasy IX's "Dagger".
