The Shinra Company is rapidly increasing its influence through
its monopoly on mako energy and military might. With the
burgeoning city of Midgar as its base and symbol of prosperity,
Shinra is on the verge of establishing absolute dominance over the world.
SOLDIER is a group of skilled combat operatives within Shinra.
The elite within the group - those strong enough to be deemed
SOLDIER 1st Class - are respected and idolized by the citizenry.
Zack is a young SOLDIER 2nd Class who aspires to become a 1st. He
spends his days carrying out assignments under the guidance of
his 1st Class mentor, Angeal.
During an operation in Wutai, a large number of SOLDIER members, led
1st Class operative Genesis, go missing. The severity of the
situation prompts Shinra executives to deploy even more SOLDIER
operatives in the hopes of bringing an end to the war in Wutai - and
conducting an investigation into the mass desertion. The ones
assigned to the mission are Zack, Angeal, and the 1st Class hero
who is known the world over as Sephiroth…
