Cloud. I have a favor to ask of you. Run Away, you have to leave, you have to live.
Sephiroth is a non-playable character and the main antagonist of the game, Sephiroth is also illustrated as Cloud's archenemy. Before losing his sanity over the false information of his heritage, Sephiroth was a former SOLDIER and was deemed the most renowned combatant of the Shinra Electric Power Company - he became the face of the Shinra Military and SOLDIER.
Sephiroth was the offspring of Professor Hojo and Lucrecia Crescent who were both working under the Science and Research division of the Shinra Electric Power Company. The two researchers were working under the supervision of Professor Gast who was the lead and top scientist of both the Jenova and SOLDIER Projects, but at that time, the company was solely working on the Jenova Project where they studied an extra-terrestrial lifeform whom they believed to be the last race of the Cetra, a race of ancient people who had the ability to connect the planet and harness the power of nature. At some point, during the project, Hojo injected cell samples from Jenova to his pregnant wife Lucrecia and the unborn baby which resulted in the cells of Jenova merging with the fetal Sephiroth. As soon as Sephiroth was born, Shinra's scientists and researchers took him away and Lucrecia never got the chance to see or even hold the newborn.
Growing up, Sephiroth did not show any signs of being a Cetra since he could not "speak to the planet" since the cells of Jenova isn't Cetra and he isn't a descendant of Cetra, but instead, Shinra found other ways of using him and enlisted him to a program in becoming a super-soldier. During the training, the militia of Shinra and those who were handling the program hid information to Sephiroth regarding his heritage and past, but instead, they injected lies that his mother's name is "Jenova" and told nothing about his father. He never knew his relation to Professor Hojo and he simply went on to continue the various experiments that were done to him.
At some point, Sephiroth was ready and he joined SOLDIER where he quickly rose to the rank of becoming SOLDIER First Class during the Wutai War. He showed excellence in the battlefield and was highly respected by his comrades and was seen as a "hero". He then became a tool to Shinra as he was used and deployed in Shinra's plan of dominance, later on, he became the face of the Shinra Militia and SOLDIER where countless young men including Cloud was attracted, looked up to Sephiroth, and dreamed of becoming a "hero" just like him.
