From Final Fantasy 7.
Known as the "calamity from the skies
", it crashed to earth
approximately 2000 years before the game
starts, creating the North Crater
. The ancients
then gathered there to help the planet focus its energy
on healing itself. Once done with that task, the planet warned the ancients
to flee, but it was too late. A spectral figure
in disguise, approached the ancients, infecting them with a virus
that turned them into monsters
. Jenova then continued the plan to infect ancients worldwide.
The planet created the Weapons
to combat Jenova, but a few surviving ancients locked Jenova away. The weapons were then left to roam the planet.
Approximately 37 years before the beginning of the game, Shin-Ra
scientist Dr. Gast
discovered Jenova and brought it to Nibelheim
. He mistakenly identified it as an ancient. In Nibelheim, the project tried to breed Jenova with a human, to create more ancients. Hojo
, two people working on the project, were married, and Lucretsia
, while Hojo
infused her embryo
with the cells from Jenova.
After giving birth to her part Jenova son, Sephiroth
(who would later become the cheif villain
of the game), Lucretsia's body collapsed from the strength of the Jenova cells.
