Final Fantasy Wiki Character

"Hear this! Today we write the first page of a new history - OUR history! Each of you must play his part! Put down this rebellion! For Archadia, we fight!" - Vayne Curados Solidor, aboard the Sky Fortress Bahamut, FF XII

"I've thought of a wonderful present for you - shall I give you despair? Tell me what you cherish most, give me the pleasure of taking it away." - Sephiroth, fighting Cloud, AC: FF VII

"Why should the world exist without me? That wouldn't be fair. If I die, we all die!" - Kuja, FF IX

"Right and wrong are not what separate us and our enemies. It's our different standpoints, our perspectives that separate us. Both sides blame one another. There's no good or bad side. Just two sides holding different views." - Squall Leonhart to Irvine Kinneass, Deling City, FF VIII

"Too slow and to their sorrow do those who misplace their trust in Gods learn thier fate!" - Judge Magister Bergan to the Party, Mount Bur-Omisace, FF XII

"Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain, or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories! Your fate is in your hands!" - Auron, before the battle with Yunalesca, FF X

"I was given the wardrobe of a nobleman, and so I played the part, a puppet ever dancing for the amusement of patrons unseen. This wretched world does not reward endeavour. It is the patron and his troupe who are receipt, maggots grown fat on endeavour's corpse. Most men but play the part they're given. Most live and die not knowing they play a part at all. But I am past all that now. I am their unwitting puppet no longer! No more! I will extract from them the price of their gluttonous feast! I will burn the Kingdom down, and from its ashes build for you a new one! A kingdom worthy of you! I will show you a world where your light will outshine the sun! A world that will know no darkness!" - Delita Heiral, to Ovelia, FFT: TWotL

Hello and welcome, komrades, to the Final Fantasy Wiki User Page of The Man In The Black Cape, coming to you live from the Principality of Wales in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. As I've been on the wiki for nearly a year now, I decided that it would be prudent to make some changes to my userpage. Those who glance upwards at my edit count will realise that I am a fairly inactive, indeed, lazy, User, though I maintain that I am a very busy man, and limited though my contributions may be, it is their exceptional quality that sets me above the average fanboy that lazes around and makes a few shitty edits every year that are either incorrect, are plagued by atrocious grammar, spelling and punctuation, and generally border on vandalism. And if you believe these petty excuses, then I am certain that you deserve all the treachery and duplicity that the Universe is sure to dump at your feet. In truth, I joined the wiki for the community, and to me its just as much a resource for when I get stuck on a game or am interested in a bit of the lore, or a sounding board for wacky theories and epileptic trees and a source of debate and conversation, as much as it is an actual project and investment of my time. If you do need me, unlikely as that may be, I can generally be found joining in either a) the stoic, funereal silence, or b)the cluttered, noisy arguing and fighting, of the Wiki IRC, under the name of TheBlackShadow.

I was first introduced to Final Fantasy by my Chinese friend (weird guy - owns every FF game from III to XII, but has since been infected by the WOW virus. Also calls Aerith "Aeris" for some reason) who convinced me to buy FF XII when I saw it in my game magazine (with a healthy 10/10 score). The rest, as they say, is history.

Very few (actually, none) games had previously managed to catch my imagination the way FF XII did, so I decided to play some of the older FFs. This is where my firend's WOW obsession came in handy. Since February 2006 I have completed FF X (which in terms of gameplay I felt was more "traditional" than XII, but, over time I came to love that one too), and FF VII: Crisis Core, for my new PSP, which led me on to FF VII. And I must say this. It may have been made in an era when, even with the best visuals, saying that the characters looked as though they'd been made out of Lego was a compliment, and the very idea of having voice actors was laughable, and was plagued by occasionally horrific translation, but it is still an awesome game. The fact that I played Crisis Core first spoiled a few bits for me [flashback to yelling at Cloud about Zack during the Nibelheim flashback] but in some ways I felt it made the experience better, filling in gaps where other players might have gone "huh?". It also raised a few consistency errors, but I digress. Since then, I have also completed Final Fantasy IX, and while I felt that the gameplay and storyline were sound, it felt a bit too cutesy for my taste, and some of the characters lacked vision. In addition, I have also played Final Fantasy VIII, IV, and V. Concerning VIII, while I have made great efforts to TRY to like it, it always seems to resist me - the Junction System was initially impenetrable, and even after I got the hang of it I still felt I was doing something wrong, and for some reason I never seemed to do very well in battle. Overall, while the graphics, storyline and SOME of the characters were very good, I was let down by the combat system and gameplay, and I gave up after the first disc. IV and V (Anthology versions on the PS1), which I am playing now, are, of course, fairly retro and simplistic, and while I feel that they simply cannot compete with the more modern games, they are enjoyable nonetheless.
