Set seven years prior to the events of Final Fantasy VII, the Shinra Company is rapidly increasing its influence through a monopoly on mako energy and its military might. With the burgeoning city of Midgar as its base, Shinra is on the verge of establishing absolute dominance over the world.
SOLDIER is a group of skilled combat operatives within Shinra. The elite within the group - those strong enough to be deemed SOLDIER 1st Class - are respected and idolised by the citizenry.
Zack is a young SOLDIER 2nd Class who aspires to become 1st Class. He spends his days carrying out assignments under the guidance of his mentor, Angeal. During an operation in Wutai a large number of SOLDIERs, led by 1st Class operative Genesis, go missing. The severity of the situation prompts Shinra executives to deploy even more SOLDIER operatives in the hope of bringing an end to the war with Wutai. The ones assigned to the mission are Zack, Angeal and the 1st Class hero known the world over as Sephiroth.
What truths lie behind Genesis' disappearance? What secrets bind the three SOLDIER 1st Class operatives? For Zack, a cruel and fateful struggle awaits.
