Name:Sephiroth Saevam
Birthdate:Apr 6
RP Account for Sephiroth from the original Final Fantasy 7. Crisis Core or Before Crisis are not taken into consideration for this version if you'd like to know my reasons for this let me know and I will happily state it. However this is for this Sephiroth's bio not for my explanations.

Name] Sephiroth Saevam (made up. Sephiroth has no official surname)
[Age] 18
[Hair]Waist length, silver, ends in a flame shape. Two bangs in front of his face, fortunately never get in front of his eyes (unless it rains... even super hair falls flat in water), stand upright framing the sides of his face.
[Eyes]Mako green
[Height] 6'1
[Weapon] Masamune, Sephiroth can also use magic and swordless fighting but prefers not to.
[Other] Even now Sephiroth is dependent although to a lesser degree than when he was younger, of the mako injections.. it is this that keeps him in SOLDIER even on the days he would rather not be... this he hates with a vengance... but as long as it is necessary.. he will remain where he is.
Sephiroth is seen as heartless and aloof, and if anyone asked him this is how he would describe himself. Yet, there is much more than first meets the eye to this strange man forced to be a SOLDIER. He has few morals, indeed most would say he has none, as if something is required in order to complete a goal he will do it, even if it means destroying something he cared about. When not pursuing a goal he can be almost relaxed, although he never quite relaxes completely, preferring to be at least a little on guard just in case.

He refuses to trust any one person completely, placing all his trust in himself and Masamune, these being the two things, which have never let him down in his life.

He does have a sense of honour, he refuses to use guns, seeing them as the cowards way of winning, relying more on luck than skill. He will not attack the unarmed unless there is a good reason for it. He will protect the innocence unless the situation calls for otherwise, although this last does not really affect very much as a rule, as he sees innocence as something that is easily lost and can never be regained. What does he call innocence? An unawareness of the violence of men, a belief that there is nothing dark in this life… consequently he believes he lost his innocence from a very young age.

Although being quite at ease when leading a troop of men into battle, or training other Soldiers up to be fighters, he is uncomfortable around large groups in a social situation, preferring to stand alone in the corner, or against a wall, letting his features settle into one of complete uncaring, seeming almost like a pale marble statue. Those who are unfortunate enough to come too close for the Generals liking are rewarded with a glare from those icy eyes that appear as though they could see straight into your soul. Any closer and he will reveal himself to be very much alive with a voice that is low and soft. “Can I help you?” He usually finds this to do the trick, they will move away and leave him to his much wished for peace.

He can relax though and his favourite way of doing so is with Masamune, training his mind and muscles. When he is doing this it would not be considered wise to approach him, since although the monsters he fights against are in his mind, when he is in full training mode anything that moves too close will not be spared. Naturally, when training with a partner he does not give his all, but alone... alone is another story.

There are some who would say Sephiroth had no sense of humour, in reality they would be wrong. It is merely.. different to most peoples idea of humour, there are things he finds amusing, people standing up to him, provided they are not without respect he finds highly amusing, and will usually play along, although they would have to look close into his eyes to see the sparkle that reveals he is merely playing. Sephiroth prefers not to laugh, it reveals he can be human. In his words: “I would rather they feared me and lived... than liked me... and paid for it with their lives.” There are some warning signs consequently when he does laugh. His shoulders tremble physically, trying to restrain it, he will either turn away, or if he does give in, he will shake his head, lifting his hand up, in a gesture of submission, revealing he does indeed give up… although also, as a way of warning, it will stop shortly, in effect, ordering himself to stop.

Obeying wise Sephiroth does not enjoy doing so. He went from rank to rank swiftly, very deliberately, only to find out much to his disgust that even as a General he still has to obey orders. He Will obey, but only when he can find no other way of doing something, if he can find an alternative route that is just as effective, he is likely to do that instead.

Sephiroth has grown up with the idea that love and caring and friendship are weak, can be dangerous on the battlefield. This has not taught him that he can not have those things, but that he should allow no one to know about it. The one or two friends Sephiroth makes should be prepared that he will not be likely to show much of his more relaxed side outside of a one to one level. Love he refuses to admit to, even if he finds himself caring for someone, he is unlikely to say the words, finding other reasons for the way he feels, right down to full grown lust if need be.

Yet Sephiroth Does have a lighter side, he knows how to be gentle, when the occasion requires it, he has been seen although rarely, actually making jokes and responding in kind to people. His touch can be as firm and hard as Masamune’s or as light as a feather, he can be extremely persuasive on occasion, as his voice can seem to be almost hypnotic when he wants something badly enough.

He is not above or below using anything he can to get what he wants, if threats and violence do not work he will switch tactics, leaving his would be opponent in a state of complete confusion. Although all too soon he is back to the person most see him as. Cold, calcluating, uncaring.

[History] Born in Nibelheim to one Professor Hojo and one Lucrecia, Sephiroth was given mako injections and Jenova cells from within the womb, he was moved to Shin-ra Headquarters not long after, never to know who his parents truly were. He was informed his Mother was Jenova and that she had died during childbirth.

He was taught to kill as a child, praised and rewarded when signs of violence showed, punished when signs of weakness or a desire to love or be loved showed.

Throughout his life he was constantly informed that one day he would be in SOLDIER, and would rise to the top. He would learn to be the strongest and the best, for he was no mere boy, but "special". Sometimes he wished he wasn't, most of the time he accepted this as his right, his reward for putting up with the daily tortures of life. As he grew up he did indeed join SOLDIER rising to the ranks of General quickly, winning the war for Shin-ra in Wutai.

Within Soldier he met and eventually befriended a young man named Zack... Zack was.. special in a way simply because he refused to believe that what Sephiroth showed to the world was all there was to the young man... As time went on, Sephiroth and Zack became... what could be classed as friends as far as that word went with Sephiroth, and certainly as partners.. both on and off the battlefield.
