    Compilation of Final Fantasy Timeline

    ~ Materia Usage ~

    To create a distinction between the different kinds of entries in the timeline, I have marked them with several types of coloured Materia. The different Materia have the following meanings:

    - Magic Materia -
    Events with a clearly stated date, whether exact or approximate.

    - Independent Materia -
    Events that are known to take place, but do not have a clearly stated date or clear relation to dated events. I have tried to place these within the chronology as well as I can.

    - Support Materia -
    Events whose dates I have tried to estimate myself after known approximate dates. These are used for those events during the time of FFVII that have no specific dates assigned to them. I have tried to take conditions such as daylight, known periods of rest, time zones (to some extent) and similar in consideration.

    - Summon Materia -
    Events officially related to a game outside of the Compilation of FFVII (unlike Ehrgeiz, Kingdom Hearts or Dissidia).

    - Command Materia -
    Entries that are pure speculations from my part.

    ~ The Calendar of FFVII ~

    Years in Final Fantasy VII follows a certain era system,
    where one era appears to last for 2000 years.
    They are written as follows: "[ ν ] - εγλ 0007"
    (the year FFVII begins).
    The Greek letter in square brackets indicates the current era
    (in this case, "nu").
    After 2000 years one era passes into another and the Greek letter
    for the current era changes into a new one and the year resets to 0001.

    There are twelve months in every year and seven days in every week.
    The months and days go by their common English names.
    However, the month of February has 30 days (at least this is the
    case with the year [ ν ] - εγλ 0001), and there is no mention
    of any month having 31 days (there is even an important festival that
    takes place on October 30 instead of October 31).

    Still, the years do not follow a perfectly regular 360 day cycle as the two
    instances of dates with known weekdays, given in Crisis Core and Advent
    Children Complete respectively, do not match each other in such a system.

    The meaning of the three Greek letters εγλ
    (epsilon, gamma and lambda), which appear together
    regardless of the era, has not yet been revealed.

    ~ Further Theories ~

    - εγλ -

    Whereas the meaning of the letters εγλ is
    unknown, a guess would be that it might be an abbreviation.
    If so, the letters could stand for something like:

    ε - epochi (era)
    γ - Gaia (the name of the Planet)
    λ - lego (tell)

    Which could be made to mean something
    such as:
    "[era sign] - that which tells of this era of Gaia"

    - [ Α ]-[ Ω ] -

    The two known eras to be mentioned in the
    Compilation of FFVII are called [ μ ] and [ ν ],
    the twelth and thirteenth of the twenty-four
    letters of the Greek alphabet. It could therefore
    be assumed, since the letters indicating the two
    known eras follow each other in alphabetical
    order, that the current calendar system has
    been in use for quite some time. In that case,
    there would already have been eleven eras before the first known era of
    FFVII ([ μ ]), during which humanity prospered after the disappearance
    of the Cetra due to Jenova.
    As each era appears to last for 2000 years, this would mean that 24007
    years would have passed since the beginning of [ α ] (alfa) era at
    the time of FFVII. This is why I decided to add, clearly marked with
    either question marks and/or the speculative (Command) Materia,
    the eras [ α ], [ λ ] and [ ϖ ] to the timeline.

    Another interesting thing is that if the era calendar is indeed based on
    the common twenty-four letters of the Greek alphabet, it will one day
    end with [ ϖ ] (omega) era. If this would be meant to signify the
    end of the world or the beginning of a whole new era, we can only guess.
    Either way, this would occur about 23493 years after the last event of FFVII
    (Nanaki and his children's visit to the overgrown ruins of Midgar).

    Omega era... Such an ominous name. Maybe that is when Omega truly
    should awaken and carry all life on the Planet to the sea of stars...

    As the ropeway tram is temporarily broken, the
    party has to stay the night at the Ghost Hotel.
    Aerith asks Cloud out on a date, as payment for
    his bodyguard services back in the Slums, and on
    their way back they see Cait Sith sneaking off
    with the Keystone. They chase him through Gold
    Saucer and eventually corner him, though he
    manages to hand over the Keystone to the Turks.
    He then reveals that he is a Shinra spy, but
    forces them to let him continue travelling
    with them by using Marlene as a hostage.

    Upon entering it, they find the badly wounded Tseng.
    He gives them the Keystone and they enter the Temple.

    - Reeve uses Cait Sith no. 2 to help Tseng. Three of the renegade
    Turks appear and carry Tseng to a boat. Tseng eventually ends
    up in a hospital in Junon, though the fact that he is alive
    remains unknown to Elena, Reno and Rude until Meteorfall.

    - Cloud and the others make their way through the Temple until they
    reach the Black Materia chamber. There they meet Sephiroth,
    who explains his plan to injure the Planet using Meteor and
    take control of the Lifestream. After Sephiroth is gone,
    they find out that the Temple itself is the Materia and Cait
    Sith no. 1 sacrifices himself to retrieve it.

    - After the Black Materia has returned to its original form,
    Cloud and Aerith pick it up. Sephiroth appears and makes
    Cloud hand over the Black Materia to him. Cloud then

Afterwards, Cloud carries Aerith outside and lets her body sink into the lake.

    Following her death

    - Aerith's spririt travels the Lifestream without

    help Cloud and the others.

    December 28

    - The next day, the party follows Sephiroth's trail north.

    where they meet Holzoff. They spend the night in his
    cabin before climbing the mountain.

    December 30

    - The party climbs Gaea's Cliff and reaches the
    Northern Crater after nightfall. At the same
    time, Rufus, Scarlet, Heidegger and Hojo arrive
    in the Highwind. Cloud and the others descend
    into the Crater and press on towards the center.
    On the way they encounter Sephiroth and more of
    Jenova's main body transforms and battles the party,
    they defeat it and retrieve the Black Materia. While
    some of the party stay behind to guard the Black
    Materia, the rest continue on in search of the real
    Sephiroth. Cloud and others are soon trapped inside
    an illusion of the Nibelheim Incident created by Sephiroth.
    Cloud breaks down and comes under Sephiroth's control.
    Meanwhile, Sephiroth tricks the one who stayed behind
    holding the Black Materia to come after Cloud. As Rufus
    and his subordinates, who have made their way into the
    middle of the Crater, are preparing to leave, Cloud and
    the others suddenly appear among them. The party
    members led there by Sephiroth give Cloud the Black
    Materia and Cloud takes off with it. Hojo confirms that
    Cloud is a Sephiroth Clone. As Cloud hands over the
    Black Materia to Sephiroth's real body, the rest of the
    party, Rufus and his subordinates fly away on the Highwind
    as WEAPON awaken. During the commotion, Tifa is knocked

    Shinra from getting hold of the Huge Materia.

    - Cid, Barret and the others go to the Corel Mako
    Reactor to stop the Shinra forces to collect
    the Huge Materia. In the ensuing struggle,

    transport the Materia goes out of control.
    Cid saves the day, the party retrieves the
    Huge Materia and North Corel is spared from
    destruction. They then spend the night at

    January 10

    - The party travels to Fort Condor and helps the villagers
    protecting the condor nest fight off the Shinra forces.
    The condor egg then hatches, though the old condor dies.
    In return for their help, the grateful villagers give
    them the Huge Materia from the reactor. The party then
    decides to wait before going after the Huge Materia in

Afterwards, they learn that another Huge Materia is to be transported from the Junon airport and hurry there, though they are too late. The party then retrieves the Huge Materia from the sunken submarine and heads to Rocket Town for the last of the Huge Materia. When the party arrives in Rocket Town, they find that Shinra is preparing to launch the old rocket. They fight their way inside of it, encountering Rude along the way, but find
    themselves trapped as Palmer activates the
    Auto-Pilot and launches the rocket. The party
    then heads to the rocket's escape pod, collecting
    the remaining Huge Materia along the way. On their
    way to the escape pod, Oxygen Tank Number 8 explodes
    and Cid is trapped under the debris. Shera appears
    and helps free him and they then use the escape pod
    to take off from the rocket before it hits Meteor.

    Sometime during the Meteor Crisis

    - The party stumbles upon the crystal cave where
    Lucrecia is sealed and Vincent meets her again.

    January 13

    - Having found the Key to Ancients and once
    again back in the City of the Ancients they
    learn that Aerith's prayer has reached the
    Planet, but realize that Sephiroth is in the
    way of Holy. As they leave, Cait Sith informs
    them that the Mako Cannon from Junon has been
    transported to Midgar and that Diamond
    Weapon has emerged from the sea close to
    the city.

    - The party travels towards Midgar on the Highwind and engages Diamond WEAPON along the way. After fighting it for a while, Cait Sith tells them that something is coming and they retreat. Shortly afterwards (in the evening, though the sun has already set in Midgar), Sister Ray is fired and Diamond WEAPON is destroyed, though the WEAPON's last volley hits Midgar and destroys the Presidential Office. Rufus manages to escape through the hidden escape route, but is presumed dead. The barrier erected by Sephiroth around the Northern Crater is shattered by Sister Ray's blast. As Cloud and the others prepare to face Sephiroth, it is discovered that Hojo is manipulating
    Sister Ray and is threatening to blow up Midgar and
    they head back to stop him. The party parachutes
    into Midgar and infiltrates the Plate Underground
    and head towards the cannon. On the way they encounter
    Heidegger and Scarlet, who are caught up in the
    explosion of Proud Clod after their battle against
    the party. Vincent then faces Hojo, who has
    experimented on himself with Jenova cells,
    at Sister Ray's control platform. He transforms
    into Chaos and defeats the mad scientist.
    Before returning to the Highwind, the party
    helps evacuate the citizens of Midgar.

    - Tseng returns and is reunited with Reno,
    Rude and Elena (who hugs him). The Turks
    begin searching for the missing President
    and Reno and Rude eventually find him in
    the secret escape route room at the bottom
    of the Shinra Building. The Turks, avoiding
    Tifa and Yuffie, have Rufus transported to
    a local hospital by a rescue team. Rufus is
    later brought to a house in Kalm by the Turks.
    The Turks continue to help with the evacuation
    of Midgar, eventually with the aid of Verdot
    and the renegade Turks.

    - Meanwhile, Vincent discovers that Hojo still might
    be alive and rushes to the control platform.
    Before he is able to reaffirm the scientist's death,
    an explosion occurs. As Vincent is forced to escape
    from the platform, he notices that Hojo's body is gone.

    - Hojo fragments the last parts of his mind across the
    World Wide Network and forms his plan to awaken Omega.

    - Ruvie dies of Geostigma in the morning in
    her home in Sector 5 on the Midgar Plate.
    Denzel then meets Gaskin, who helps bury Ruvie.
    After following the train tracks circling down
    the Central Complex, Denzel ends up becoming a
    part of the Sector Seven Scavengers group.

    - After having spoken to Rufus in Kalm
    in the morning, the Turks are given the
    mission to collect information and gather
    friends in Midgar.

    - The party visits Aerith's lake in the Forgotten City
    before going their separate ways. It is decided that all
    their Materia belongs to Yuffie, but that Cloud will keep
    custody of all but some of the curative ones.

    - The four Turks travel back to Midgar by foot and
    assess the situation. While they are gone, Rufus
    is abducted by Mutten Kylegate, a lieutenant of
    the Shinra Army, and imprisoned in his mansion
    in Kalm. He remains in captivity for approximately
    two weeks. When the Turks return later that day,
    Rufus is nowhere to be found. The Turks begin to
    investigate his whereabouts.

    January 28

    - After having waited for seven more days for his
    mother to contact him, Evan leavs Midgar at
    night for the slums.

    The days following The Chosen Day

    - Cloud, Tifa and Barret visit Corel, Nibelheim
    and then travel to Kalm to pick up Marlene from
    Elmyra, who is living there with some relatives.
    They then go to Midgar and begin helping the
    people there.

    - Cid returns to Rocket Town and begins to construct
    a new airship with Shera, who has Geostigma,
    and the other mechanics. They also start
    searching for oil to use as an alternate
    power source.

    - After returning home to Cosmo Canyon and visiting Seto,
    Nanaki decides to go on a journey to see the world.
    As he is about to leave the Canyon, a strange dark
    fear awakens inside him. This feeling will continue
    to haunt him for a long time.

    - Yuffie arrives back in Wutai early one morning and finds that the Lifestream has damaged many buildings and that several people have been wounded. Using the curative Materia she brought with her, she sets up a temporary hospital and begins treating the injured. Exhausted, she takes a break for the night. She is awakened by the sound of Godo shutting her up inside of the temporary hospital. Geostigma has appeared among the people of Wutai and Yuffie is blamed for having brought it from Midgar. Yuffie's childhood friend Yuri, whose mother has been struck with Geostigma, helps Yuffie escape in the morning and they go looking for a Materia that might cure the disease in the Materia caves to the south of the village. After fighting a monster in the Materia Caves, Yuffie and Yuri encounter a strange black liquid with an evil presence. Though they flee from it, Yuri is struck with Geostigma. While trying to get Yuri back to Wutai, Yuffie encounters Nanaki, who helps her carry the sick boy. They return to Wutai two days after they set out to look for Materia and find that a quarantine shelter has been set up for the Geostigma victims. Yuffie spends the next two weeks taking care of the ill.
    During this time, she makes Nanaki go
    look for information regarding the
    mysterious new disease.

    - As Nanaki is travelling towards Midgar to ask
    Cloud and Tifa for information regarding Geostigma,
    he witnesses the death of a Nibel Bear mother and
    ends up becoming the adoptive parent of her two cubs.
    He names them Pazu and Rin and stays in the forest to
    raise them.

    - During the roughly two weeks Rufus is imprisoned,
    Kylegate uses the information given to him to
    begin building the city of Edge according to
    Rufus's plans. At Kylegate's command, remnants
    of the Shinra Army occupy the Shinra Building
    and volunteers gather supplies and tools from the
    Shinra warehouses located in the different sectors.
    The Turks take note of this and take steps such as
    changing the passkeys to the warehouses.
    With Verdot's help, they realize that Kylegate
    might be keeping Rufus prisoner and go to investigate
    his mansion in Kalm. Just before they arrive, Kylegate
    has a falling out with one of his underlings and is
    killed and his mansion is set on fire. Rufus is cornered
    by Kilmister, one of Hojo's former staff, who drugs him
    and then transports him, along with several Geostigma
    victims, to a coastal cave somewhere near Kalm.
    The Turks hear of Rufus's abduction from Kylegate's
    mansion and continue to look for him. In the cave,
    Kilmister begins his research on Geostigma.

    - Weiss and the other Tsviets in Deepground
    begin their rebellion against the Restrictors.

    - Vincent wanders the lands and keeps little contact with his friends.

    - Reeve founds the World Regenesis Organization.

    - Cloud, Tifa and Barret decide to open a bar in Edge. At Marlene's suggestion, the bar is named 7th Heaven. The new 7th Heaven opens some months after the first one was destroyed. A week later, Barret leaves on a journey to settle his past, entrusting Marlene to Cloud and Tifa.

    - Inspired by Tifa's reopening of the 7th Heaven, Johnny decides to open a bar of his own on the outskirts of Edge. He names it Johnny's Heaven and keeps it open six days a week.

    - After leaving Marlene with Cloud and Tifa in 7th Heaven, Barret travels the world for half
    a year. During his journey, he decides that he wants
    a new prosthetic right arm and visits the artisan
    Sakaki in Junon who helped him with his old one.
    While waiting for the work to be completed, he
    helps Sakaki's nephew pick up vegetables from a
    nearby village. While visiting the village,
    Barret witnesses a young girl die of Geostigma
    and, while talking to the girl's father,
    realizes how much transportation like an
    airship could help everyone. He then goes
    to Rocket Town and meets Cid and Shera,
    who are working on their new, oil-driven
    airship. After talking to them, Barret
    decides to search for oil-fields.

    - Several months after the opening of 7th Heaven in Edge,
    Cloud trades a lifetime voucher for eating and drinking
    for free at the bar for Fenrir. He then takes up the
    Strife Delivery Service as his full-time job.

    - Yuffie spends a year alternating between taking
    care of the Geostigma victims in Wutai for two
    weeks and searching for a cure for two weeks.
    During this time, Yuri's mother dies. Yuffie
    and Yuri also see the connection between feelings
    of despair and fear of dying and Geostigma, so
    Yuffie tries to keep her patients' hopes up by
    teaching them martial arts. After almost another
    year, while on her way to Corel, Yuffie
    encounters the Shera and meets Cid and Nanaki again.
    She and Nanaki then head to the Materia caves in
    the north.

    - Nanaki spends nearly two years taking care of
    Pazu and Rin in the forests near Nibelheim.
    During this time, Nanaki realizes that the
    dark feeling he has been experiencing is the
    fear of losing those dear to him. His time
    together with the bears ends shortly after
    Nanaki sees Elena come into the forest with
    some hunters, looking for _Nibel Bear tails_.
    After an incident with the hunters, in which
    Pazu and Rin accidentally wound Nanaki, the
    two bears go to the hunters' camp at night
    to drive them away. They are killed by the
    hunters and Nanaki, unable to control himself,
    attacks them in their huts. Vincent, who
    followed the Turks, appears and shoots Nanaki
    to prevent him from killing any of the hunters.
    Vincent transforms, scaring away the hunters,
    and then takes care of the wounded Nanaki.
    When Nanaki wakes up, he and Vincent talk
    before parting ways again. Nanaki then travels
    to Rocket Town, where Cid is almost finished
    with his new airship. He stays and goes on the
    first test flight, during which he meets Yuffie
    again. He ends up helping her search the Materia
    caves in the snowy north. After they split up,
    he continues his journey _throughout_ the world.
    Nanaki eventually meets Vincent again in the
    Forgotten City and they talk. Vincent helps
    Nanaki overcome the dark fear he has carried
    for so long and they promise to meet once
    every year in Midgar so that Vincent, being
    immortal, can listen to Nanaki's stories.

    - About half a year after Rufus is brought to
    Kilmister's secret hideout, a flood occurs
    in the cave while Kilmister is away to negotiate
    with the Turks. As Rufus tries to save himself
    and the Geostigma victims being held there,
    he is given Geostigma by Sephiroth's spirit.
    When Kilmister comes back and lets them out
    of the flooded cave, the doctor shoots one of
    the two remaining Geostigma victims, a woman
    called Pamela. Before the other one, a man
    called Judd, manages to strangle Kilmister,
    the Turks arrive.
    Rufus and the Turks, along with Kilmister, Judd and many other Geostigma victims, thereafter take up residence in a former Shinra mountain resort (later known as Healen Lodge). Kilmister continues his research on Geostigma and Rufus and the Turks work on rebuilding the Shinra Company. During this time, Rufus orders the Meteor Monument to be built in the middle of Edge's central square. Eventually, Elena has to go looking for Nibel Bear tails in order to make the medicine used to supress the pain of Geostigma.

    The Lifestream
    Not long before AC

    About two years after Meteorfall, Rufus and Kilmister have a talk regarding the latter's research. He reveals to Rufus that he has found a connection between Sephiroth and Geostigma, though he has been unable to find a cure and does not think that one can be found. He then asks Rufus to look for the remains of Jenova and talks about his plans for an experiment, which were once rejected by Hojo, that he believes could surpass even Sephiroth. The next day, Kilmister is found shot to death. The culprit is Judd who, though he does not say so directly, was given a gun by Rufus. Rufus then orders the Turks to locate and secure the remains of Jenova, so that it will not fall into the wrong hands.

    - Cloud contracts Geostigma and leaves 7th Heaven to live in the church.

    - Children in Wutai go missing mysteriously, Yuffie investigates.

    - Barret finds a large oil-field.

    13 days before the first day of AC

    - The Turks descend into the Northern Crater and find Jenova's head.
    As Tseng and Elena retrieve it, Kadaj, Loz and Yazoo appear and
    attack them. Though Reno and Rude are able to fly away with the
    box containing Jenova's head, Elena and Tseng are captured by
    Sephiroth's trio. Tseng and Elena are later brought to the
    Forgotten City, where Vincent finds them and does his best to
    help them.

    The first day of AC, 11:22

    - Reno calls the Strife Delivery Service office in
    7th Heaven and Tifa answers. Tifa then calls
    Cloud and tells him that Reno has a job for
    him and that he is waiting in Healen.

    Ca. 12:00

    - Shortly after listening to Tifa's message,
    Cloud is attacked by the trio. After the

    he is asked to come to Kalm to talk.

    DC begins on an unknown date at 18:36

    - While Vincent is in Kalm, waiting to meet Reeve, Deepground Soldiers attack during the ongoing Revival Festival. Vincent heads out into the town and does his best to protect the people.

    - Meanwhile, Shelke confirms Vincent's presence in Kalm.

    - Vincent meets Shelke and Azul. After Shelke suddenly collapses, they both withdraw. Vincent then meets Reeve, who turns out to be a Cait Sith in disguise, and then helps the WRO drive away the Deepground forces. After calm is restored, he meets Reeve, who tells
    him that Edge is under attack.
    They head there in a WRO Shadowfox.

    - Meanwhile, the WRO forces in Edge are
    annihilated by the Deepground Soldiers
    led by Rosso and Nero.

    - While Reeve and Vincent are talking on
    their way to Edge, they are interrupted
    by Weiss's transmission. Afterwards,
    they are attacked by a large pack of
    Guard Hounds and the Shadowfox crashes
    during the course of the battle.
    Vincent continues towards Edge on foot.

    - Shortly after arriving at Edge, Vincent meets
    Shalua, who sets off on her own. Vincent then
    proceeds through the deserted city and eventually
    faces Rosso. After a short fight, Vincent
    transforms into Chaos and Rosso is blown away.
    After transforming back, Vincent collapses
    and is brought to the WRO Headquarters by

    - Vincent wakes up in the WRO headquarters
    and is greeted by Shalua, who talks to
    him about Chaos and Lucrecia's research.
    Reeve then comes to meet them. Soon afterwards,
    Deepground attacks the WRO Headquarters.
    During the battle, Shalua confronts her younger
    sister Shelke, though Shelke claims to care
    nothing for her past life. Vincent then fights
    Shelke and knocks her unconscious. He also faces
    and defeats Azul, whose body remains in the
    WRO Headquarters. Vincent then decides to go to
    Nibelheim and Reeve sends out Cait Sith to
    further investigate Deepground.

    - While riding a helicopter on his way to Nibelheim, Vincent's journey is interrupted by Deepground forces. After the helicopter is destroyed, Vincent has to continue to Junon on foot in order to catch a ship to Costa Del Sol. In Junon he encounters more Deepground Soldiers, led by Rosso, but manages to get on a ship. On its way across the ocean, the ship is attacked and begins to sink. Curious about Vincent's power, Nero unleashes a Black Widow from within his darkness that battles Vincent. As the black widow is destroyed, the ship sinks into the ocean together with Vincent. Cait Sith no. 3 appears in a submarine and brings him the rest of the way to Costa Del Sol, where Vincent takes a helicopter to Nibelheim.

    - Meanwhile, Cait Sith infiltrates Deepground
    and witnesses Omega. Nero appears and cuts
    his investigation short

    - After making his way through the sewers
    running from the Nibelheim Mako Reactor
    to the basement of Shinra Manor, Vincent
    finds a recording left behind by Lucrecia
    where she explains about Omega. Vincent
    then searches the Manor for the remains
    of the Omega Reports, but is confronted
    by Rosso. After fighting a Black Widow
    she has set up, Vincent is surprised by
    Rosso who tears the Protomateria from his
    chest. As Rosso is about to kill him,
    Yuffie appears, saves Vincent and carries
    him away.

    - Vincent wakes up in a WRO Shadowfox and is
    greeted by Yuffie. Reeve then contacts
    them and they discuss the situation.

    separated for ten years. At the same
    time, Azul wakes up and Deepground

    crashes. Vincent then proceeds alone to
    the Headquarters and fights his way inside.
    There he encounters Azul, who has transformed
    into his beast form, and meets Shalua and
    Shelke again. Azul reveals to Shelke that
    she is no longer necessary and that her
    elimination has been ordered. As he is
    about to attack all three of them,
    Shalua sacrifices herself to allow
    Vincent to bring Shelke to safety.
    After Deepground has left, Shalua is
    discovered to still show signs of life,
    though it is uncertain if she can ever
    recover or even wake up. Vincent and Reeve
    talk about the Omega Report that Vincent
    recovered from Shinra Manor and Shelke
    reveals that fragments of Lucrecia's
    memory data have been uploaded into her
    mind. Cid then arrrives with the WRO

    The Lifestream

    - Upon reaching Midgar, the WRO forces launch a simultaneous assault on land, led by Cloud, Tifa and Barret, and from the air. Vincent drops into Midgar from the Shera and lands in the Sector 7 Slums Train Graveyard. Guided by Shelke, he makes his way to the Central Complex. There he encounters Rosso and they fight, a battle which ends in Rosso's defeat and she decides to end her own life. Vincent then proceeds down through the secret entrance in the Shinra Building to Deepground.

    - Meanwhile, Nero infiltrates the Shera and destroys the engine room. Shelke confronts him, but is caught inside his darkness.

    - As Vincent continues downwards to Deepground he encounters Azul. At the end of their battle, Vincent transforms into Chaos and kills him. Vincent then reaches the gates to Deepground and goes inside. As Vincent traverses the ruined town surrounding Mako Reactor 0 he is caught in Nero's darkness, but it cannot hold him for long. Just outside the reactor entrance, Vincent meets Nero. After a short fight, Nero once more engulfs Vincent in his darkness. Inside, Vincent finds Shelke and
    rescues her. Back outside, they once
    more face Nero, who prepares another
    attack. However, Yuffie appears and
    scares him away. After leaving Shelke
    to recuperate in a Mako tube, Vincent
    and Yuffie continue on into the reactor.

    - Vincent and Yuffie finally reach the core of
    Mako Reactor 0, where they find Weiss on his
    throne. Nero appears and, when Vincent and
    Yuffie turn to attack Weiss as he is fusing
    with Omega, engulfs them in his darkness.
    Vincent brings Yuffie out of the darkness
    and then fights Nero. After the battle,
    the awakened Weiss kills Nero. He then
    turns to Vincent and reveals that he is
    actually Hojo, who has possessed Weiss.
    Hojo elaborates on his plan and then fights
    Vincent, defeating him easily. Struggling
    with Chaos's power, Vincent is encouraged
    by Lucrecia, through Shelke, and stabilizes.
    He then defeats Hojo. Nero, though bodiless,
    reappears and awakens the true Weiss. Weiss
    then merges with Omega, abandoning Hojo.

    - As Omega forms above Midgar, Vincent transforms into Chaos. Without the Protomateria, he is unable to control himself. In Deepground, Shelke performs a SND into Omega, where she is given the Protomateria by Lucrecia, she then returns it to Chaos's chest. After regaining control, Chaos descends into Deepground and brings Shelke back to the surface.

    - With the help of the others, who destroy the Midgar Mako Reactors, Chaos is able to enter Omega. There he faces and defeats Weiss, who has merged with it. Even though Omega is crumbling, it attempts to fly away, but is stopped by Chaos. After Chaos and Omega return to the Planet, Vincent is nowhere to be found.

    Sometime soon after DoC
    (while the moon is still full)

    - Genesis awakens from his sleep beneath Midgar and carries away the apparently lifeless Weiss, stating that "It is not yet time for slumber.".
