[The feed clicks on to an auburn haired man, his hair slicked back from the water, rubbing his forehead. Clearly, he's got a bit of a headache and his mako blue eyes take in his surroundings. He remembers being in a flooded cave, sealed away, but he was protected as well. So why was he soaking wet? He removes his hand from his forehead, revealing the Vatheon tattoo as he finally looks to the oddly shaped device.]

Just where have I been taken to~?

[ History ] :
Loveless, Act I


[ Personality ] :
Genesis is passionate and fiery individual. Him emotions run deep and they are not tempered. Sometimes. He loves to have a flare, to be dramatic and to be heard. In this vein, he’s also quite vain and ensures he also looks good when going out. He loves looking good. He keeps a calm façade most of the time but should he become angry, there is a fire in him that would not be quelled until he calmed himself down. Part of that anger is that he is prone to jealousy, whether it be from a friend or someone who was better than him (proven or not).

Genesis is also a master with words and very charismatic. Should he want to, he can and will manipulate those around him. However, he's hardly ever found a reason to do this since he likes to be above such trickery (though it doesn't hurt every now and then to have a little fun~). Of course, within the game Genesis had fallen down to using such tactics due to his degradation of both mind and body. But since he was healed by the Goddess and given a second chance, he has since fallen back on way before everything had gone downhill. However, that doesn't mean he won't use such tactics when the need calls for it. His enhanced body also gives him quite the daring attitude. He was risky as a normal human but now nearly indestructible? Why, the possibilities were endless for him. Given his wealthy family, he has spent time learning about everything around him and, more importantly, who. He is quite the social butterfly and will use this knowledge to him advantage should he need it.

Despite all this mingling that he actually doesn't favor doing, he never opens himself up unless one is a close friend of his. He doesn't like being in the dark, but he doesn't like making himself vulnerable if he can help it, hence the need to be charismatic without pushing too hard. Genesis can be enigma to those around him and due to being a SOLDIER, there was a respect that he automatically had, he also doesn't mind flaunting this and because certain other people don't dare question him, it's easy to see how he can become "close" the other people but never let them become close to him.

There is also an idiosyncrasy to Genesis that is quite simply unique him in that when he sets his mind to something, he can and will become obsessed. However, considering we have only seen this with his obsession with the play LOVELESS, it remains to be seen exactly how obsessed he becomes with other things. Not only that but when his mind had degraded, LOVELESS was the only thing he really latched onto. He was known for quoting it a lot but it wasn't until his desperation and his insanity reached their peak that he really started reciting it on a near constant basis. Luckily, now that his sanity and life has been restored, he won't be quoting it nearly that often.


[ Strengths/Weaknesses ] :
As with any First Class SOLDIER, Genesis is very proficient with a sword. To be specific, his weapon of choice is a long crimson-bladed sword called Rapier with a decorative filigree handle. And just like any SOLDIER in general, he has been enhanced with Mako. His strength and agility are greatly enhanced due to the Mako. However, it’s his skill with the blade that is most notable. It is seen throughout the game Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core that he can and does channel his magic through his sword. Whenever he activated the Fire Materia within, runes appear along the length of the blade and glow, giving it a fiery glow and strengthening it in response. His skills themselves are a match to even Sephiroth, though it remains to be seen that he has yet to actually beat the man. He is also noted for being skilled the art of magic when it comes to Materia as it has yet to be seen that other SOLDIERs actually even use Materia all that often. Genesis, however, uses it along with his swordplay very, very well. He also has an odd ability to walk on water, as it's seen at the end of Dirge of Cerberus, though it's unexplained how or why he can do this along with turning the water black.

His weakness is his temper. If he's angry enough, he tends to lose rationality and his temper takes over. Not only that but he always felt the need to prove himself and it only became worse when he found out he was, basically, defective. Despite having gotten over the inferiority complex, he will still prove himself should he need to. And, just like any other SOLDIER, he is still ultimately human. He's enhanced, yes, but he can and will tire eventually, he can be wounded and he is mortal.


[ Other Important Facts ] :
None


[ Sample ] :
He had been Deepground much longer than he thought. The stones crunches beneath his feet as he walked toward a darkened cavern, venturing in deep within its depths.

Gaia had been saved, Sephiroth was truly no more and the world was beginning to recover. True, it had been but a year since his own defeat at the hands of one Zack Fair before he was taken in by his "Brothers". But it was long enough to know what had happened. He could almost feel the Planet's anger at what had happened, but Genesis did nothing for now.

He could do nothing. Despite Her anger, the Planet was safe. She was safe and would certainly thrive soon enough. To be Her protector was his new goal, his new meaning, his new dream, his new honor... but Genesis Rhapsodos was not needed just yet. Nor was the world prepared for his return.

The water within the cavern lapped gently against the shore, Genesis walking toward it quietly, but surely. It simply wasn't his time to walk upon Gaia's ground. Not yet anyway, perhaps it never had been. After all, his steps graced the water and then walked upon it, as though it were the ground. It was most likely Minerva's doing, but Genesis didn't mind. She gave him Life. Taught him that because he fought so hard to live, even going as far as to destroy others to get to it, that he would need strength to overcome his grief and pain that would accompany him for the rest of his life. To get what he wanted, he was left with nothing. Nothing but himself.

Was it worth the price? A tough question. One that even Genesis couldn't answer. And so, he walked on water, to the depths of the cavern until the darkness obscured him. And there, Genesis Rhapsodos would sleep until one day he was needed. And perhaps, one day, answer that question.

Genesis wears a Wizard Bracelet. It contains eight Materia slots. There are also two slot in Rapier.

In Rapier, he carries a fully mastered Fire materia linked to a mastered Elemental Support Materia.

In the Wizard Bracelet, he carries mastered:
Restore Materia
Lightning Materia
Time Materia
Ice Materia
Earth Materia
Shield Materia
Heal Materia
Mega All Materia

This isn't to say he only has these materia, he can and will carry others if he needs to switch any out.
