FF Weekly: FFVII Special Part 5

FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE will be released on April 10th, 2020! Leading up to that, we’ll cover various key terms and concepts associated with FINAL FANTASY VII to prep for the big day. In this entry, we’ll continue the discussion of the Shinra Electric Power Company with an in-depth look at one part of their military force: SOLDIER.

Stronger than both the standard peacekeeping troops and the Turks, SOLDIERs are Shinra's elite fighters. They are bathed in mako to enhance performance in battle beyond human limits—a process that imbues their eyes with a distinctive glow. It is this characteristic luminescence that makes all members—past or present—easy to identify.

The glow in Sephiroth’s eyes is all the more piercing and realistic in FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE!

SOLDIERs are divided into three classes, with First being the strongest and Third the weakest. Second and Third Class SOLDIERs are relatively common, but First Class troopers are exceedingly rare and include the legendary Sephiroth himself.

In FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE, it seems there will be a new character named Roche who, according to the official FFVII REMAKE site, is a renegade Third Class SOLDIER. What part will he play in the story of Cloud, Avalanche, and the other characters of FFVII REMAKE?
