On a distant planet known as Gaia, an energy-manufacturing mega-corp known as Shin-Ra is super busy harvesting the life force of the planet for the big bucks. The Lifestream and products created with it have the ability to grant the wisdom of the ancients to the user, simultaneously bridging the gap between the planet and her people while also slowly killing the planet in general. Though blissfully aware of their impact, Shin-Ra continues to ruin everyone's lives and slowly, the metropolis of Midgar is little more than an expanse of slums and factories.
Besides pillaging and destroying Gaia from the inside-out, Shinra is also heavily invested in Mako energy's military applications, namely the Jenova project. President Shinra, realizing Gaia had a finite supply of Lifestream, became obsessed with the Cetra, a race of people who lived on Gaia long before humans. Cetra legend dictates the existence of 'The Promised Land' where Lifestream was nearly limitless, meaning bigger bucks! To reach The Promised Land, Shinra would need a Cetra, which they found in the Jenova excavation. Except Jenova was an alien well-versed in genocide. Oops.
Mistakenly believing Jenova was Cetra, President Shinra proceeds to combine Jenova cells, Mako energy, and a human host to create an elite military unit known as SOLDIER. This project results in the birth of Sephiroth, who later finds out genocidal tendencies are indeed hereditary.
Now as Cloud, a mercenary and self-proclaimed ex-member of SOLDIER, a seemingly simple mission may very well result in a series of events that change the planet for good.
