What we’ve done is set in stone. The past is forever, but the future, even if it has been written, can be changed. So focus on the future, not the past.”

  • Tifa’s Destiny – To add to the uncertainties, Tifa’s voice-over in a conversation with Cloud questions what is reality and what is fiction.
Wait. What are you implying? That I died? That I’m some kind of an imposter?”
