Final Fantasy Wiki

Final Fantasy VII timeline comprises a timeline of events in the Final Fantasy VII series, with official and approximate dates given depending on sources.

  • Dates in the world of Final Fantasy VII are stylized as either "[ μ ] – εγλ" or "[ ν ] – εγλ", in the calendar format of the world. The changeover occurs from [ μ ] – εγλ 2000 to [ ν ] – εγλ 0001. Dates after [ μ ] – εγλ 2000 begin with [ ν ] – εγλ 0001. The change presumably occurs in the wake of the official announcement of the Wutai War ending in February of [ ν ] – εγλ 0001.
    • This calendar format appears on wall calendars in Final Fantasy VII Remake walls and cutscenes for Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- Reunion.
    • While the calendar does bear a resemblance to, and shares the month names of, the Gregorian calendar, the lengths of the months are not identical, with some events in the series stated to have happened on a February 30.[1][2]
    • The font originally used when the calendar format was introduced in the Making Movie video on the Final Fantasy VII: Perfect Guide bonus disc was stylized so that "εγλ" resembled the English word "Era", with the prefixes "μ" and "ν" designating two distinct calendar eras. These may refer to the Japanese word for "null" (, mu?) and the English word "new", rendering the two calendar eras as the "null era" and the "new era." In Remake, Rufus Shinra carries coins engraved with the phrase "a new era."
    • The calendar format "[ μ ] – εγλ" is pronounced "M-E-G-L" in English, based on the first letter of the Greek letters mu, epsilon, gamma, and lambda. The Japanese pronunciation, "mū egiru," instead retains the Greek letter "mu" and then treats the Latin equivalent "EGL" as an acronym.[note 1]
  • The following years are the main dates of each entry of the series:
  • Only events with a known or approximately-given date are listed. A citation will be given for the source of the date, and for any release the event appears in, including in flashback form or described events.
  • In cases where two events have a contradictory date, the latest release is used, and annotations will note discrepancies.


Before Final Fantasy VII[]

Circa 2,000 years before Final Fantasy VII[]

FFVIIR Cetra hologram 01
FFVIIR Cetra hologram 02

Cetra civilization as imagined by a Shinra Building hologram in Final Fantasy VII Remake.

  • An alien creature crashes into the north pole (present day Icicle Area). The impact creates the North Crater, and the planet's effort to gather energy to repair the damage causes the region to become barren and ice over.[1][4][5]
  • The Cetra at Knowlespole (present day Icicle Inn) hear the cries of the planet during a planet-reading, and discover the wound caused by the alien. When the Cetra leave the land, as advised by the planet, the alien spreads a virus, causing the Cetra's numbers to dwindle.[4]
  • The planet creates Weapons to combat the threat caused by the alien, while the Cetra combate the alien. The Cetra confine the alien, and as such, Weapons become dormant.[4]

[ μ ] – εγλ 1959[]

  • September:
    • 23: Shinra Manufacturing (later Shinra Inc.) discovers mako energy.[2][1][5]
  • In the nine years that follow, in addition to its applications in weapons manufacturing, the advent of mako energy leads to dramatic advancements in machinery and construction techniques, making the construction of Midgar possible.[5]

[ μ ] – εγλ 1960[]

Mt nibel reactor

The Nibel Reactor in Final Fantasy VII.

  • Shinra chooses Nibelheim as its main research base, and starts constructing the Shinra Manor.[15]

[ μ ] - εγλ 1967[]

[ μ ] - εγλ 1968[]

Circa [ μ ] - εγλ 1969[]

  • Shinra launches the "Midgar Project". Built from the success of the Nibel Reactor, it aims at "establishing a safe and prosperous way of life through mako energy (while furthering Shinra's expansion)". Because of the reactors' harmful environmental effects, Shinra plans to separate the lower and upper levels of Midgar via a plate to isolate the effects to the environment, contain dangerous monsters beneath the plate, and foster competition by establishing different standards of living.[5]
  • Year 0 of Midgar construction. After a mako hotspot is discovered (in the location Midgar was eventually built), Shinra begins work by building a wall around Midgar's perimeter to ensure safe and efficient construction with a large labor force undisturbed by wild beasts (although monsters had not yet turned excessively violent from environmental degradation). Construction workers travel to the nascent city from Kalm and other places. Mako Reactor 0 is built to supply energy for the project.[5]

Circa [ μ ] - εγλ 1971[]

  • Year 2 of Midgar construction: Mako Reactor 0 begins operating in the center of Midgar, later the site of the central pillar. With the establishment of the energy supply and weapons to maintain order, the construction of Midgar begins in earnest. Operating the mako reactor leads to vegetation dying out, and surrounding areas turn to wasteland.[5]

[ μ ] - εγλ 1972[]

Circa [ μ ] - εγλ 1972-73[]

  • Years 3-4 of Midgar construction: The Midgar perimeter and Mako Reactor 1 are completed. Sped up by the operation of Mako Reactor 0, construction concentrates on ensuring safety and generation of energy. More and more ground is leveled, leaving behind rocks and parts of the foundation difficult to remove, to allow for the construction of Mako Reactors 2 through 8, along with plate-supporting pillars and the plate itself. This leads to an influx of construction workers and the establishment of lodgings and small commercial and recreation facilities, which would go onto form the basis of Midgar's slums. Housing is constructed between the walls due to fears that proximity to reactors would lead to harmful effects on the human body.[5]

Circa [ μ ] - εγλ 1974-75[]


Midgar under construction in Crisis Core.

  • Years 5-6 of Midgar construction: The Midgar train system and Sector 1 plate are completed. With the plate in the first sectors finished, traveling between the surface and upper part of the city becomes more important, and a switchyard is erected to facilitate this in a location that would eventually be known as the Sector 7 undercity. The train system facilitates more efficient movement of goods and people, accelerating constructions of additional portions of the plate. The plate construction leads to more people moving to the city and the number of lodgings increases, with the Sector 5 undercity taking shape around the same time. The outskirts are appropriated as a storage location for waste materials.[5]

[ μ ] - εγλ 1975[]

Circa [ μ ] - εγλ 1976[]

  • Mako Reactor 8 commences operations, and migration to the top of the plate is in full swing, supported by bountiful supply of energy being generated by the mako reactors. The waste zone extends to other slums and expands further into each sector.[5]
  • Plate Number 6 collapses, due to weight in excess of its load-bearing capacity. There were few casualties as immigration to Sector 6 had yet to start, though the area beneath the plate became impassable due to debris. Shinra does not allocate funds to restore the area.[5]

[ μ ] - εγλ 1976[]

  • June:
    • 24: Construction of Midgar is complete, and Shinra relocates headquarters to the Shinra Building in the center of the city.[1][2][5]
  • The population of the city increases rapidly as a result of large-scale efforts to attract immigration, particularly to high-income potential taxpayers. The number of immigrants far exceeds the maximum capacity for those who can live on the plate, and Shinra opens former construction workers' housing quarters for the use of low-income citizens. The switchyard in Sector 7 is abandoned around this time.[5]
  • In the nine years that follow, Midgar sees stability as impact to the environment is still negligible. However, the poorer living environments, coupled with the significant income gap in comparison to those living topside, leads many to deride the undercity areas as "slums" (although Shinra still uses the term "undercity").[5]

Circa [ μ ] – εγλ 1977[]


Jenova within casting for study in Final Fantasy VII.

  • Professor Gast Faremis, Supervisor Director at the Shinra Science Division, discovers the mummified alien at the North Crater, mistaking the remains for a female Cetra, and gives it the name "Jenova".[22][1][2][note 4]

[ μ ] – εγλ 1977[]

[ μ ] – εγλ 1977-1984[]

  • Project: 0 experiments proceed, with Lucrecia Crescent, Hojo, and Hollander participating as scientists, but result in failure and the deaths of the test subjects.[23]
  • 1979

Circa [ μ ] – εγλ 1977-1982[]

  • Vincent, in his 20s, works as a member of the Turks in Nibelheim. He visits Shinra Manor on dispatch to guard researchers, and meets Lucrecia Crescent. He grows close to Lucrecia and proposes to her, but is rejected.[12][note 5]
  • Genesis Rhapsodos and Angeal Hewley are born.[28][note 6] Both are products of Dr. Hollander's Project G, named for Gillian Hewley, a woman implanted with Jenova cells. Genesis had her genes mapped onto him during birth, while Angeal was bred inside Gillian's body.[30]
  • Sephiroth is born.[22][31][1][32][note 7] A product of Professor Hojo's Project S,[3] Sephiroth was born to Lucrecia, with Hojo as the father implanting Jenova's cells onto Sephiroth.[34][35] In Project S, the remains of numerous failed experiments were used to create Sephiroth as the perfect monster.[3]
  • Upon birth of Genesis, the secret underground Deepground division, located beneath the Shinra Building, begins to experiment independently.[2]
  • Professor Gast Faremis resigns from Shinra and goes missing. Professor Hojo takes over his research.[2][22]

[ μ ] – εγλ 1977[]

  • Vincent, at 27, is shot by Hojo, and experimented on until entering a death-like state. Lucrecia implants the Chaos factor into him, restoring him to life, and goes on the run. Viewing the modifications to his body as punishment, he slumbers in a coffin in the Shinra Manor basement.[22][12][note 8]

[ μ ] – εγλ 1982[]

  • Following the discovery of mako in the Rhadore Archipelago, Shinra launches the Rhadore War to seize control of the islands. Less than a thousand native Rhadorans survive the Shinra assault. Shinra disengages following the initial onslaught, while a remnant of the Rhadoran Army hides out.[36]

[ μ ] – εγλ 1984[note 9][]

[ μ ] – εγλ 1985[]

  • February:
  • The Wutai War begins, due to Wutai refusing to permit the construction of a mako reactor on its land.[5][note 11]
  • The Wutai War leads to increased mako energy construction in Midgar in the seven years that follow as Shinra operates the reactors at higher output than originally planned, leading to rapidly deteriorating environment, destabilized foundations, and more aggressive monsters invading the the city. Because Midgar's economy is predicated on maintained a gap between rich and poor, Shinra takes no substantive measures to rectify the situation, providing bare minimum essential services of security to the undercity but making no effort to reinforce the perimeter or exterminate monsters. A weapon production plant is also constructed beneath the city.[5]

  • With the Wutai War dragging on, Shinra pushes the mass production of materia and SOLDIER operators to end the war once and for all. This causes management of the undercity to fall by the wayside as resources are devoted to the war effort. People in the undercity create neighborhood watches to protect their environment.[5]
  • After the Rhadore War has been on pause for a decade, Shinra dispatches Glenn Lodbrok, Lucia Lin, and Matt Winsord to the Rhadore Archipelago to search for a suitable site to construct a mako reactor. A battle is fought with the Rhadoran resistance, which ends with the complete genocide of the Rhadoran people at the hands of Sephiroth. Shinra engineers start constructing a mako reactor on the island of Sijad, but they accidentally ignite a mako torrent that destroys the island.[36]

[ μ ] – εγλ 1993[]

  • Shinra, having found Aerith, sends Tseng to retrieve Aerith from the Gainsborough house. Aerith tries unsuccessfully to conceal her identity as a Cetra.[48][49] Tseng offers to leave Aerith alone permanently if she tells them the location of the promised land, and Elmyra makes a deal that she will watch over Aerith and tell them as soon as Aerith knows its location, on condition that Shinra does not come near.[50][note 13]

    • Although mako reactors were meant to return to pre-war production levels, both Shinra and the general population became accustomed to their increased energy supply, and reactors as well as their environmental damage increase. Shinra uses excess energy to begin restoring the topside parts of the city, but no improvements are made in the slums. This causes anti-Shinra sentiment to become more widespread, but only up to a point; public anti-Shinra demonstrations are few and far between due to the mutual dependence between the undercity and plate, and action is mostly taken by terrorist groups such as Avalanche. Weapon production plants are demolished and their remains are abandoned.[5]
    • 30: Events of "Those That Lurk in the Night", "In the White Light of Day, the Assassin Smiles", and "Swords Clashing in the Evening Shadows".[55] Avalanche intensify their terrorist efforts.[1][2] Avalanche had planned to blow up Mako Reactor 8 and assassinate President Shinra, but their efforts were thwarted by Sephiroth and the Turks.

The party arrive in North Corel, the remains of Corel Village, where Barret is ashamed to confront his past.[80] At the Gold Saucer, the group meet Cait Sith, who joins the party to spy on them. Shortly after they are thrown out by the Gold Saucer's Dio due to a massacre carried out by a man with a gun-arm, which Barret is mistaken for, and tossed to Corel Prison below.[96][95] There, they find the real culprit is Dyne, whom Barret reluctantly defeats. Dyne entrusts Barret with Marlene. Dio gives the group a buggy as an apology.[97][19]
    • Events of "In the Land of the Study of Planet Life" and "Unnatural Hometown". The party stop at Cosmo Canyon on their way and meet Geisel Bugenhagen, who tells them more about the planet and the lifestream. Red XIII learns there the truth about his father Seto, and resolves to carry on with them.[6][13] The group pass through Nibelheim, where Cloud and Tifa are stunned to find their home still standing as if it had never burned down, and the group find a number of Sephiroth-clones. Jenova, still appearing as Sephiroth, tries to urge Cloud to join the Reunion, and departs telling Cloud to pass through Mt. Nibel and proceed north.[98][91][note 29]
    • Events of "A Sleeping Village Dreaming of Outer Space". The group arrive at Rocket Town and meet Cid Highwind, but arrive the same time as Shinra, who request to borrow the Tiny Bronco for their own pursuit of Sephiroth. Cid refuses both until Palmer attempts to steal the rocket, and with Shera's help, Cloud's party secure it for Cid. Cid chooses to join their quest against Shinra, harboring hatred for them.[21][78]
    • Events of "Secret Date". Hearing rumors about the Temple of the Ancients, the group travel to Gold Saucer to obtain the key to it, where they do so successfully but have it stolen and returned to Shinra by Cait Sith, who forces them to keep him by threatening Marlene.[99][note 30]
    • Events of "Within the Temple of the Ancients". At the temple, Jenova sneaks behind Tseng and cuts him down, with Cloud's group finding the fallen Tseng at the entrance to the temple. Inside, Cait Sith sacrifices his body to obtain the Black Materia, returning with a second body. Jenova manipulates Cloud to give Jenova the Black Materia and knock out Aerith. Sephiroth is trying to summon Meteor with it.[100][91][95][note 30]
    • Events of "Parting with Aeris". Cloud's group resolves to find Aerith, worried for her safety. Aerith travels to the City of the Ancients and prays for Holy to stop Meteor. Though her prayers are successful, Jenova kills Aerith, and changes a part of its body into Jenova∙LIFE to fight the party. They prevail against it and then mourn Aerith.[101][39][91]

  • Events of "The Destruction of Mako Reactor 1", "Fateful Encounters", and "Home Sweet Slum". Barret's Avalanche cell, sending himself, Biggs, Wedge, Jessie, and employing Cloud as a mercenary, blow up Mako Reactor 1. The group return to the hideout, Cloud meeting Sephiroth and Aerith on the way. After returning to the hideout, Tifa helps Cloud get settled in at the Sector 7 slums in his apartment, Stargazer Heights.[105][106][107][5][note 33]
  • Events of "Home Sweet Slum" and "Mad Dash". Tifa helps Cloud find work, goes her separate ways from Barret's cell, and Barret refuses to re-hire Cloud. Later that night, Jessie hires Cloud to steal from her house and a Shinra warehouse in upper Sector 7 to get Jessie a new blasting agent.[107][109]
  • Events of "Mad Dash", "Dogged Pursuit", "Light the Way", and "A Trap Is Sprung". After returning to the slums, whispers attack Seventh Heaven and injure Jessie, forcing Barret to hire Cloud and bring Tifa along to bomb Mako Reactor 5. The group eventually make it there, only to find Shinra has sprung a trap for them, broadcasting the event live and their public execution, which they escape from. Cloud falls to the Sector 5 slums.[109][110][111][112]
  • Events of "Budding Bodyguard", "The Town That Never Sleeps", "Rough Waters", "Haunted", "Fight for Survival", "A Broken World", "Wutai's Finest", and "Covert Ops".

Corneo reveals Shinra will destroy the Sector 7 pillar, and drops them in the sewer system, where they make their way to Sector 7 only to find it already under attack.[113][114][115][116]
    • In Sector 7, Aerith helps evacuate the slums before being kidnapped, and Cloud, Tifa, and Barret barely escape before the sector is destroyed.

Impresario-ffvi-iosThis section is empty or needs to be expanded. You can help the Final Fantasy Wiki by expanding it.



  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Sephiroth cites the dates [ μ ] – εγλ 7/7/1977 (Jenova verified as an Ancient) and [ μ ] – εγλ 9/13/1977 (Jenova Project approved, Mako reactor 1 authorized for use) while reading aloud in the basement of Shinra Manor in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- Reunion. These dates were not stated in the original version.[3]
  2. Bugenhagen says "This year, I'll be 130" around the time of Final Fantasy VII, which occurs in [ ν ] – εγλ 0007,[6] setting his birth around 1877.
  3. Vincent is described as being 27 in his "outer appearance" at the time of Final Fantasy VII,[11] because he does not age with the experiments performed on him. In Dirge of Cerberus his chronological age is listed as 60 and 57 in the Original Continuity. -Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII- Official Complete Guide, p.010
  4. Gast's discovery of Jenova is listed as "around 30 years before Final Fantasy VII" in all sources.[1][2][22]
  5. Vincent's events in Nibelheim are listed as "roughly 25-30 years" before Final Fantasy VII.[12]
  6. The Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Ultimania simply lists the age of Genesis and Angeal as "around 25",[28] while the timeline separately lists their birth as approximately 20 years before Crisis Core.[29]
  7. Sephiroth's birth is listed under 25-30 years before Final Fantasy VII in the Final Fantasy VII Ultimania Omega,[22] and around 20 years before the start of Crisis Core in the Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Ultimania.[2] His age is listed as "Around 25" in the Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive Volume 2.[31] The Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Ultimania lists his age as "around 25",[33] but separately lists his birth as approximately 20 years before the start of Crisis Core.[29]
  8. Vincent's being shot by Hojo and subsequent experimentation is listed as "roughly 25-30 years" before Final Fantasy VII.[12] However, Lucrecia going on the run and Hojo's experimentation on him is listed as "23 years before Final Fantasy VII.[22]
  9. Vincent's being shot by Hojo and subsequent experimentation is listed as "roughly 25-30 years" before Final Fantasy VII.[12] However, Lucrecia going on the run and Hojo's experimentation on him is listed as "23 years before Final Fantasy VII.[22]
  10. Final Fantasy VII 10th Anniversary Ultimania Revised Edition alternately lists Zack's year of birth as 1985[38], however all the events in his personal timeline that give his age at the time give ages that would line up with his year of birth being 1984. From this, it is likely that Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Ultimania is correct while Final Fantasy VII 10th Anniversary Ultimania Revised Edition contains a typographical error.
  11. The start date for the Wutai War was originally listed as year 1992 in both the Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Ultimania and the Final Fantasy VII 10th Anniversary Ultimania.[1][2] However, the Final Fantasy VII Remake Material Ultimania listed the start date as 1985.[5]
  12. Mr. Holzoff and his wife say he left the town and lived out in the village 20 years before Final Fantasy VII.[4][45]
  13. Tseng visits Aerith sometime after Aerith's eighth birthday, which would have occurred in February 1993, was cancelled.[51]
  14. The exact date of Genesis' injury and Lazard's team-up with Hollander are unknown, though Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Ultimania lists the event before the mass-desertion that occurs in October.[2]
  15. Though an exact date for the formation of Avalanche in Final Fantasy VII 10th Anniversary Ultimania or Final Fantasy VII Remake Material Ultimania, its formation is listed directly after the Wutai War ends,[1][5] and both the 10th Anniversary Ultimania and Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Ultimania lists February 30 as the date the organization "intensifies its terrorist efforts",[1][2] (with Final Fantasy VII Ultimania Omega listing this directly after the war concludes without giving an exact date[22]), suggesting the organization was formed in February.
  16. Tifa's birthday is given as May 3rd, and Zangan's final training is said to happen three days beforehand. As the lengths of the months in the Final Fantasy VII calendar are not known precisely, it is not known what day of April falls before May 1st.
  17. The novel Final Fantasy VII Remake Trace of Two Pasts only gives the date of Nibelheim's neighborhood watch making participation mandatory on September 18. However, its proximity to learning that Shinra was sending an investigation team on the twenty-second[69] suggests it was September 18 of 0002. The description of the humanoid monsters suggests the villagers saw makonoids.
  18. In Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII-, the Turk sent to the Nibelheim mountains is the Player Turk. In Trace of Two Pasts, Tifa simply simply describes a "woman from Shinra" who was "wearing a black suit" from whom she never got a name,[70] suggesting the Turk was one of the female Player Turk options.
  19. 19.0 19.1 The events of the Nibelheim Incident are depicted in "The Tragedy of Five Years Ago" in Final Fantasy VII, "The Scar that Sunders the Calm" of Before Crisis, Chapter 8 of Crisis Core, and in Last Order -Final Fantasy VII-.
  20. Dr. Oranye told Tifa that she had awoken a month after the incident,[76] although an exact day is not given.
  21. An exact date is not given, but Tifa describes the event as occurring on a Wednesday in the week following her sixteenth birthday.
  22. Tifa was directed to the Sector 7 slums on her eighteenth birthday, and met Marle there the following Wednesday.[81]
  23. In Episde 19: "The Choices We Made in the Beginning and the End" of Before Crisis, any of the possible Player Turks—of which Cissnei is an option—finds Zack and Cloud escaping Midgar.[55] However, Chapter 9 of Crisis Core confirms that the Turk sent in question was Cissnei.[82]
  24. The second half of "At the Hideout in the Slums" and all of "To the No. 5 Reactor" occur the day after "No. 1 Reactor Bombing", and thus can be assumed to take place December 10.
  25. An exact date is not given for the events of "The Woman at the Church" or "To Corneo Hall". It is unclear if it occurred the day after "To the No. 5 Reactor" or on the same day.
  26. An exact date is not given for the events of "Prevent the Fall of the Plate" or "To Corneo Hall". Given that Red XIII's date of joining the party is listed as "[ ν ] – εγλ 0007/12",[13] it can be assumed these events still took place in December.
  27. An exact date is not given for the events of "Prevent the Fall of the Plate" or "To Corneo Hall". Given that Yuffie's date of joining the party is listed as "[ ν ] – εγλ 0007/12",[46] and the earliest she can be acquired is around this time, it can be assumed these events still took place in December.
  28. An exact date is not given for the events of "The Stowaway Stragey" or "Dangerous Voyage". Given that Cait Sith's date of joining the party is listed as "[ ν ] – εγλ 0007/12",[95] and these events occur before, it can be assumed they still occurred in December.
  29. An exact date is not given for the events of "In the Land of the Study of Planet Life" or "Unnatural Hometown". Given that Cid's date of joining the party is listed as "[ ν ] – εγλ 0007/12",[21] and the earliest she can be acquired is around this time, it can be assumed these events still took place in December.
  30. 30.0 30.1 The events up to "Parting with Aeris" do not have exact dates. However, Aerith learning about the Meteor and leaving after the Temple of the Ancients, as well as her death, are listed as taking place in year "[ ν ] – εγλ 0007" in her timeline.[39]
  31. 31.0 31.1 An exact date for the events of "Mako Cannon Rampage" is not given. However, the events took place at least a week before the defeat Sephiroth's defeat in the events of "The Planet's Judgment", which took place January 21.[1] This is because, directly after the events of "Mako Cannon Rampage" (which begun the day of "What Aeris Left Behind", as Diamond Weapon attacked immediately after), both Cloud and Red XIII remarked that Meteor would land and destroy the world within seven days.[34]
  32. Cloud recovering Denzel 0008 on Cloud's timeline in the Final Fantasy VII 10th Anniversary Ultimania Revised Edition, in the event just before 0009.[41] In the same book in Tifa's timeline (with her age 22), it is listed under 0009.[43]
  33. The Final Fantasy VII Remake Material Ultimania simply lists the Mako Reactor 1 bombing events as occuring in the "present day", below 0007.[5] No official source confirms if the event took place December 9 as in the original Final Fantasy VII. In the Japanese script, during "Home Sweet Slum", Marle asks if Cloud is the man who arrived "the day before yesterday" (while in English she only says "Well now. You must be Cloud."[108]), when the original continuity had Cloud's arrival in Sector 7 Undercity Station on November 3, suggesting either that Cloud's arrival date changed or the date of the bombing changed.
