Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII

Minor Character


Voice Actor: N/A
Age: N/A

Essai and Sebastian have stories that are interwined. They are both close friends of SOLDIER 1st Class Zack Fair, even though they themselves are only SOLDIER 2nd Class.

When Zack is asked to investigate the AVALANCHE base in Icicle Inn, Essai and Sebastian go along to provide support. They end up getting captured though, and are scheduled to be turned into Ravens - Fuhito's elite personal guard. Fortunately, the Turks manage to rescue them before this can take place though.

Second Time Unlucky

Unhappy with the results of their first venture, President Shinra orders that they return to finish off the job. However, this time AVALANCHE were informed of their attack - most likely by Rufus Shinra - and this leads to their capture yet again.

They are again scheduled to be turned into Ravens and this time they aren't rescued in time. As Zack arrives, they have already genetically mutated too far and cannot be saved. They are then defeated in combat by the Turks as a result and they die in Zack's arms.

Essai and Sebastian have a brief cameo in Crisis Core during one of Zack's Digital Mind Wave sequences. Following the death of Angeal, Zack has a DMW sequence with Tseng in which he visits two graves in the snow. These are the graves that Zack made following the incident in Icicle Inn.

The two graves have the swords of both Essai and Sebastian protruding from them as a sign of respect.
