Following on from the biggest game in the franchise, Final Fantasy VIII saw a band of military cadets attempting to stop an evil sorceress from compressing time.
We also got to see some interesting parallels between the generations of characters through playable segments that saw us controlling Laguna, Kiros and Ward in the past.
We currently have 28 Final Fantasy VIII characters in our database, out of a total of 53 characters.
Final Fantasy VIII has six main characters, the majority of which are SeeDs. These are all playable throughout the game, but Squall and Rinoa are the most important out of the six featured.
Ultimecia is the mastermind behind the events in Final Fantasy VIII and she is largely unaffiliated with the other villains that appear throughout the game. They all have their own grand ambitions which are largely separate.
Final Fantasy VIII has a vast quantity of minor characters, who predominantly come from Balamb Garden, the home of many of the main characters. Quite a few are found scattered around the world though, and they have interesting ties with each other.
