Section 2: Final Fantasy VII

This is not created to give a complete overview of VII, but as a guideline of sort so that readers unfamiliar with that game will not be totally lost.

2. A: General Knowledge

Life Stream: A 'river' of green ethereal energy (Spirit Energy) housed within the planet. The Lifestream provides life to the planet and all those that dwell upon it. The Life Stream is made up of the souls who died in the past and the memories they held contributes the growth of the Life Stream.

Mako: The spirit energy condensed in liquid form via Mako Reactors, Mako is used in many ways, most notably to provide energy to Midgar and Gaia as a whole. However, Mako extraction and usage is considered very harmful to the environment.

Materia: The result of further condensation of Mako, these sphere-like objects provides a link between its wielder and the Life Stream, allowing the physical manifestation of the memories within the Materia, creating what is known as 'magic'. Materias are artificially manufactured within Mako Reactors, but they can also be formed naturally. (See Magic Section for Details)

Mako Poisoning: Contact with Mako is considered potentially dangerous for normal humans, thus the need for Jenova cells during the creation of SOLDIER. In most cases, the victim suffers the inability to perceive their own identity, but instead is lost within the memories of the dead inside Mako energy. An example of this would be Cloud's Mako Poisoning to the point where he adopted another's personality for his own.

Due to Kyuubi's inhabitation of Naruto, he is immune from the effects of Mako Poisoning, and does not require the further introduction of Jenova cells.

2. B: Jenova Era

2000 years before the main game, an extraterrestrial life form known as the 'calamity from the skies' arrived in Gaia.

Cetra: Also known as the Ancients, The Cetra are a people who possess the ability to communicate with the land and guide its energy. However, the Cetras were drove to near extinction upon Jenova's arrival, though they ultimately defeated the creature at Northern Cave. Also, Cetras believe in a place called the 'Promised Land', where the souls of the Ancients will travel to upon their death.

Note: Evidence have shown the Promise Land to be the Life Stream

Jenova: The alien life known as the 'Calamity from the Sky'/'Heaven's Dark Harbinger', Jenova is said to have been the cause of the destructions of many a planets before it reached Gaia. Upon its arrival, the Cetras made war upon Jenova, and managed to seal it away. Northern Crater: The wound in the planet caused by the arrival of Jenova, it is also the place where Jenova was sealed.

2. C: Modern Era

AVALANCHE: A rebel and eco-terrorist group that vehemently oppose Shin-Ra, AVALANCHE sees Shin-Ra as evil due to their extraction of Mako – the life of the planet itself. Cloud was involved with AVALANCHE during the course of Final Fantasy VII. Furthermore, it is interesting to note that prior to the main game, AVALANCHE had almost wiped out the entire human race by summoning a creature called "Zironidae", and they have attempted to done so to remove all threat to Gaia.

Jenova Project: The excavation and experimentation of the life form known as Jenova in order to produce an individual with powers of a Cetra – namely, Sephiroth. The Jenova Project also served as grounds for the creation of SOLDIERS as well.

Midgar: A city founded by Shin-Ra, also serves as Shin-Ra's headquarters.

Nibelheim: Hometown of Cloud and Tifa, the research site of the Jenova Project.

Nibelheim Incident: During an investigation of the town's Mako Reactor, Sephiroth manage to access the Research Site of Jenova project. After learning his origins, the SOLDIER commander went insane, burned down the town and slaughtered its residents.

Shin-Ra Electric Company: Once a small Weapon Development Company, Shin-Ra grew in power and size after their discovery and subsequent monopolization of Mako Energy. Eventually, the dependency people had on Mako and Materias allowed Shin-Ra to become a de facto World Government of sorts.

SOLDIER: Shin-Ra's enforcers created during the international War, SOLDIER are special warriors who were injected with Mako and Jenova cells. With the two alien factors, SOLDIER possesses attributes far exceeding normal humans. As a side note, the Jenova cell injection is to prevent a case of Mako poisoning from happening.

See also Mako Poisoning.

Turk: The other branch of Shin-Ra military, Turk specializes in covert operations such as assassination and sabotage, as well as scouting potential SOLDIER candidates. Occasionally, they also serve as bodyguards to the higher ups of Shin-Ra.

Wutai: A country occupying an island off the western most continent of Gaia. Wutai's leader Godo led the country in a struggle for dominance against Shin-Ra but lost. Afterwards, Wutai was stripped of its military powers and all Materias, and was turned into a place of tourism by Shin-Ra.


Section 3: Concepts

3. A: Magic and Summoning

Conception of Magic:As stated previously, Magic is the physical manifestation of the memories of the dead within Materias. It is important to realize that Materia in itself does not enable the user to cast spell, but instead it acts as a conduit between the Life Stream and the user. By taking up a portion of the user's Mana, a Materia can cause a resonance within the Life Stream, thereby creating the so-called 'Magic'.

The greater the quantity of Mana used, the greater the resonance, and the more powerful the spell.

Concept of Summons: Summons are similar to Magic in that they both are the manifestations of memories, but unlike Magic, Summons are able to take on physical forms and linger in the material world for a far longer duration. While the exact nature of Summons is unknown, it has been hypothesized that Summons are the result of extremely powerful memories being drawn forth. These memories are of such intensity that they could actually exist outside the Life Stream for a longer period.

Limitations of Magic and Summons: Magic is restricted to those without Materias, mostly because without a Materia to aid them, humans cannot achieve the same harmony with the planet as they could with a Materia, thereby unable to cause the necessary resonance needed to activate a spell.

However, Naruto is capable of casting without the aid of a Materia, because under Hojo's Mako experimentations, Naruto has accumulated a far greater quantity of Mako in his body than that of a normal SOLDIER, giving him certain qualities of a Materia. As such, Naruto is capable of establish contact with the Life Stream regardless of distance, and Materia.

3. B: Channeling of Mana

Mana Control: One of the most important reasons for which Naruto could not use High-Level spells is due to Mana control. Materia, while acting as a conduit, also acts as a controller, allowing only a certain amount of Mana to flow through at one time. Such a control is especially important in the usage of spells like Flare. If Naruto attempts to use Ultima spell without Materia, the amount of Mana that he draws upon would completely destroy his body's internal working. So in order to cast High-Level magic, Naruto still require the use of Materia.

Furthermore, due to the amount of Mana needed for such spells, even the best Chakra control would have little avail.

Condensation of Mana: Theoretically, with proper Mana control, it is possible to condense any spell, thereby increasing its power. Although this will reduce the range of the spell, its strength is increased exponentially.

For example, while normally an Ultima spell is capable of annihilating an area with a radius of several hundred meters, if that range is condensed to about four meters, the spell would boost enough power destroy subatomic particles, thereby creating a literal vacuum in space.


And that's all, folks. If you have any comments or questions, feel free to speak them in the review section. If I missed anything, tell me. Thanks.
