    I like the intro. biographies and I think you should totally do one on Sephiroth. Sephiroth, I feel and I think a large part of the community feels, is what defined Final Fantasy 7 as the iconic game it is. He oozed awesome coolness, and when I was a smaller kid than I am today, me and my friends all wanted to be Sephiroth. I think that his character is a play on what happens if a single individual becomes too powerful. His story represents the old adage “power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” because he was once a great man who had potential to do a lot of good for the world. However, left on his own devices, he slowly descended into madness and became a genocidal maniac. In my mind, Sephiroth was ultimately a lonely soul because he was the only character in the game infused with divinity, and so had no true friends. When he finally found out why he was so lonely, that he was created from Jenova tissues, he finally went crazy because he was so angry it was not his fault that he had no friends. Oh, and his mane of white hair, ridiculously long sword and billowing black cloak probably did not help in the acquaintance-meeting process.
