An' Cloud... Sorry, I wasn't any help.Wedge
Wedge is a minor character in Final Fantasy VII, whose role is expanded in Final Fantasy VII Remake. He is a member of Avalanche under Barret Wallace, and is best friends with Biggs and Jessie, serving supporting roles, focusing in the technological areas of Avalanche's efforts to oppose the Shinra Electric Power Company.
Wedge is self-described as "roly-poly," enjoying food. He has black hair held back with a red bandana, and wears a beige shirt, blue shorts, brown boots and shoulder pads, with a bandolier across his chest and grenades on the belt of his trousers.
Wedge is easygoing and thoughtful. He expresses concern for Cloud's emotional well-being, offering to help if Cloud ever needs somebody to talk to. He loves Tifa's cooking, attributing his weight to its deliciousness. Wedge is also an older brother; if spoken to just before jumping off the train on the way to the Sector 5 Reactor, he remarks that he looks like his younger brother in the disguise he is wearing.
Wedge jumps off the train with the rest of AVALANCHE, and take part in the attacks on Midgar's Sector 1 and Sector 5 Reactors. The mission is a success, and AVALANCHE retreat to the Sector 7 slums, where their hideout, 7th Heaven is located.
After resting up, AVALANCHE head for the train, but problems arise concerning Cloud's fake ID at the checkpoint, and Wedge shows up to warn the party that the train carriages are going to shut down to catch the intruders onboard. He, Biggs and Jessie stay behind, in disguise, while Cloud, Barret and Tifa escape into the underground railway system.
When Shinra attacks Sector 7 to drop the plate upon the Midgar Slums, Wedge fights to defend the town. He is badly wounded along with Biggs and Jessie. Wedge suffers a fatal fall from the support beam, his final words expressing surprise and happiness that Cloud remembered his name.
Behind the scenesEdit
Wedge has a younger brother. During the second bombing mission Wedge wears a disguise in the train, and says he looks just like his little brother. In dummied content from the Honey Bee Inn, a person who is implied to be Wedge's brother, called Kwedge, mentions his elder brother. An NPC in the Wonder Square of the Gold Saucer also uses the same model as disguised Wedge.
When Wedge falls from the pillar and is watched over by Aeris, if the player progresses to the next map where Biggs is, and returns to the previous map, only a little of Wedge is visible, twitching his feet. Due to the gate being blocked by the merchant, it is impossible for the player to talk to him.
During Chapter 8 in the Train Graveyard in Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-, Vincent can talk with a girl from the World Regenesis Organization who says that when her mother died, her brother joined a Shinra resistance group, but was killed when the plate fell onto Sector 7. This could be either Biggs or Wedge.
Wedge appears with a fire-elemental card.
Biggs and Wedge are a recurring running gag in the Final Fantasy series. They almost always appear as a duo, and are named after Star Wars characters, Biggs Darklighter and Wedge Antilles, Luke Skywalker's Red Squadron wingmen in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
