|AAH Cloud Strife. Our main character in this wonderful game. He has everything you need in a main character. A head, 2 arms, 2 legs, and a big freakin sword. OH, and dare we forget the spiky hair. he's perfect.
Cloud is just your everyday, garden variety, friendly neighborhood spiderman.......NO wait. he is just your everyday, garden variety, friendly neighborhood mercenary with heavy mental troubles and a penchant for the dramatic. (falling on his knees gripping his head in pain......SURE it hurts Cloud.) He leads a life without full memory of his past, and he doesnt really make a concious effort to figure his past out anyways. So he just kinda goes through his adlt life as a mercenary. A soldier for hire if you will. Life is easy.
That is life WAS easy. Then Cloud was hired by a political resistance group known as AVALANCH to help take out a Mako Factory. Then his entire life was changed as he was pulled into something much bigger then he ever dreamed of.
