Cloud Strife Character Information

Final Fantasy VII - Cloud Strife Icon

Cloud Strife was born in the mountain village of Nibelheim, where he was different from other children in the village. He could never fit in and convinced himself that he was superior to the other village children, so didn’t care for their company. However, he often tried to get closer to his next-door neighbor, Tifa Lockhart.

At the age of fourteen, Cloud set out to join SOLDIER, hoping to prove himself. He hoped to be like his hero, Sephiroth. Seven years later, Cloud and Tifa met again in the slums of Midgar. After learning Tifa had joined AVALANCHE, an anti-Shinra rebel group, Cloud joined as well. Now a mercenary, he is tasked by the rebel group to destroy the Number One Mako Reactor.

Cloud Strife is voiced by Kenyu Horiuchi (JP), Nozomu Sasaki (JP) and Steve Burton (EN)

Cloud Strife Roles

In the previous Final Fantasy titles, the red mage was a “jack of all trades” who was able to do a bit of everything while not exceling in anything. Cloud is a similar “jack-of-all-trades.” However, he excels in both the physical and magical attributes, so can instead be classified as “hero”.
