Several years before Cloud Strife rode atop a train to commit unspeakable acts of terrorism, he was a wimpy little Shinra military grunt, and aspired to be strong enough to join SOLDIER, an elite military group. While he never actually made it into SOLDIER, his good friend Zack Fair did, SOLDIER First Class, in fact. Crisis Core –Final Fantasy VII- is Zack’s story, spanning the seven years leading up to Final Fantasy VII. The impact Zack has on Cloud is profound, and it’s great to see what actually happens to the man in this tragic story.
