Its been 25 years since Kadaj tried to take over the world. ShinRa's power has been restored. The members of SOLDIER are stronger then ever, with more numbers then ever. Cloud and Tifa have been murdered by the hands of a geneticly-altered assasin that makes Sephiroth look like a kitten. Barret, Cid, Red XIII, and Cait Sith have been set to been executed. Now ShinRa has completed a machine that infuses the knowledge of the planet into your very brain allowing you to manipulate one element of your choosing. Yuffie is still trying to find the Fire Dragon of Wutai, last she heard he had joined ShinRa. Things that begining to look bleak. We should act soon, for ShinRa is gaining strength as we speak. Choose your side, and fight for what you believe in. As for me. I will do as I have always done. So if you don't side with me, be prepared to stare down the barrel of death.
