Originally a gun-slinging member of the Turks, back in the days when Shinra Electric Power Company was known as Shinra Manufacturing. The mad scientist Hojo transformed his body into the aberration it is today. His long slumber in a coffin below Shinra Manor came to an end three years ago, when he was awakened by Cloud and joined him on his quest.
The former head of Shinra's Urban Development Department. He is currently serving as the commissioner of the World Regenesis Organization (WRO), a group devoted to helping the planet recover from the Meteorfall tragedy and standing against those who would threaten the world again.
A young ninja from the distant land of Wutai. Three years ago, she became entangled with Cloud and his companions during her search for materia. She is away from her homeland and has been (somewhat) forced into joining the WRO. She is in charge of espionage and intelligence gathering.
Although her appearance is that of a 10-year-old girl, Shelke is actually a member of the Tsviets, an elite Deepground unit. Her specialties include the ability to dive into virtual networks and wield two EM sabres in combat. She is working closely with Azul in the search for Vincent's whereabouts.
Also a member of the Tsviets. His appearance has earned him the title of "Azul the Cerulean." His greatest love is battle, and his awe-inspiring power allows him to wield a tank's cannon as if it were a toy.
A member of the Tsviets whose body is stained crimson. She moves with the elegance and speed of a panther, and can shoot airwaves from her hands. She is ferocious and unstable. Her dream is to see the world devoid of all human life.
