Two years after the Planet's jeopardy by Sephiroth, Cloud lives separate and alone
from most of the world, acting as a delivery man for his own Postal Company: Strife
Delivery Service. Strife Delivery Service works with Tifa's 7th Heaven in caring for
orphaned children inflicted with Geostigma Syndrome, a disease caused by Jenova's
cells in the Lifestream that can result in severe pain or death.
When the Planet is threatened again, Cloud finds himself carrying around the mistakes
of his past, believing in his incapability of protecting anyone. Cloud's emotional
wounds allow him to be faint of heart, oppressed by the memories lost. Seeking
forgiveness, he fights for the chance of redemption.
With the life of the Planet at stake, Cloud fights on, battling his sins, to save
others. Cloud also struggles with his physical condition, being inflicted with
Geostigma as well, which brings about painful memories of his past.
Cloud's style has been changed from Final Fantasy VII. Instead of his signature
SOLDIER uniform, Cloud now wears an all-black outfit, carrying around a new sword
(using about 6 smaller swords in one), rather than the Buster Sword. The Buster now
marks the spot of Zack's grave.
