Cloud Strife is the main protagonist in both Final Fantasy VII and
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. He also appears in the spin-off
games Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus and Crisis Core -Final
Fantasy VII-. In addition, he makes an appearance in Final Fantasy
Tactics as a playable character earned through completing a series of
side quests. Cloud is somewhat cocky and selfish, agreeing to help
AVALANCHE but only for the right price. However, during the events of
the game he gradually develops into a better person, and shows genuine
concern for the fate of the planet, a sharp contrast to his persona at
the start of the game where he claimed he didn't care. Once his true
memories are restored, Cloud largely remains the same in personality,
although he is guilty over the events that he allowed to occur as a
result of his false memories.In Advent Children and many related
appearances, Cloud is a much more somber and dark character. Tormented
by his past, including the deaths of Zack and Aerith, Cloud distances
himself from his friends and lives alone. He also contracts the fatal,
incurable plague Geostigma, adding to his feelings of helplessness.
However, during the film Cloud faces his past both metaphorically, and
literally, with the rebirth of Sephiroth and his visions of Aerith.
These events allow him to forgive himself and move on.
