[SNOW: Icicle Inn] Main outdoors area of town on the bottom left side of the northern continent

After punching Elena, before you go snowboarding

Talk to the soldiers

This village is now under martial law!

(Do what you're told)

Don't be angry. I'm just doing my job.

(Kick his butt)

Stop it, there're kids around!

Listen, I probably shouldn't tell you, but I hear something big's going down up North.

The President's gonna be there. So, would you please just lay low for a while?

After punching Elena, before Meteor is summoned

Talk to the guy on the roof

When I first moved here, I saw a man with a Black Cape heading North.

It seemed strange seeing a Black Cape against the snowy white.

Talk to the guy in the back

Sorry I just took off a while ago... It looked like there was going to be trouble.

Anyhow, you'll need a snowboard to get down that hill. Want me to teach you how to ride one?

Yeah, maybe you should

Before you go snowboarding

Talk to the kid sliding down the slope

Depending on ???

Sledding's fun!

Who is that man?

Talk to the kid on the left

It's almost finished!

Talk to the kid on the right

Next time, I'm gonna make an even bigger one.

After snowboarding, before Meteor is summoned

Talk to the kid sliding down the slope

I'm gonna try snowboarding after this!

While Tifa or Cid is the leader

Try to go snowboarding

I told you, you can't!

There's a steep hill past here. You shouldn't go any further.

After Meteor is summoned, before the Sister Ray is fired

Talk to the guy in the back

There's a barrier at the North end of the crater! You shouldn't go any further.

Talk to the kid on the left

What's a barrier? You mean that light on the top of the mountain?

Talk to the kid on the right

I heard that there's a barrier on top of the mountain.

After the Sister Ray is fired

Talk to the guy in the back

A bright light shattered the barrier at the crater! What in the world's goin' on!?

Talk to the kid on the left

A sad voice is getting louder every second!

The mountain must be crying. Is it hurt?

Talk to the kid on the right

Once the barrier's gone, I can hear cries from beyond the mountain...


[SNW_W: Weapon Store] Inside first house on the left

Talk to people across the counter

Grandpa, wake up! We have a customer!!

...smack...mff... Oh...welcome, glad you came.

Talk to them again

You'll have a hard time selecting from all the good things we have!

[SNMIN1: Icicle Inn] Inside house in the middle of town

Before punching Elena

Talk to the boy


Before getting the snowboard

Talk to the mother

My boy got hurt right about the time we moved here...

I never should've bought him a snowboard.

After getting the snowboard, before Meteor is summoned

Talk to the boy

Tell me when you get good at it.

Talk to the mother

Teach me too, ok!?

After Meteor is summoned

Talk to the boy

I wanted to get a lot better at snowboarding...

Talk to the mother

I don't think I could live in this town. It gets so cold here!

I have to move again... I don't know where to start.

Talk to the other person

The reason for the drop in temperature must be because of that dome of light at the Northern limits...

You all should get away from here and go to a place like Mideel Island in the south.

[SNMIN2: Icicle Inn] Inside house on the right side

Check items inside the room

Received "Hero Drink"!

Received "Vaccine"!

Before Meteor is summoned

Talk to the guy outside

Before you go snowboarding

It's nearly impossible to reach the Northern limits without a map.

If you're thinkin' 'bout going to the Northern limits, you'd better take that map on the wall.

If you got the map already

What nerve! You already tore down the map.

After you go snowboarding

I'm thinkin' 'bout doing that hill on my skis.

Talk to the woman sitting

Depending on where the maid is?

My husband left 20 years ago and still hasn't come back.

He should at least be at the foot of the Gaea Cliffs. It's marked with a check on the map...

Depending on where the maid is?

I just get s-o comfortable.

Talk to the maid

Depending on where she is?

The master is an experienced climber, you know.

I've heard that he knows every corner of that Great Glacier!

Depending on where she is?

Grandma, don't sleep so close to the fire!

After Meteor is summoned

Talk to the guy

It's the first time that the temperature has dipped this low, this fast...

There's also that mysterious light at the Northern limits too. Does it mean that we've reached the end of the world?

Talk to the woman sitting

Cough...cough... I've been living in this town for 60 years. And STILL I caught a cold...

I heard there's a doctor on a Southern island somewhere. I sure wish he'd come here...cough...cough...

Talk to the maid

Grandma's been sick for a while and doesn't have much energy lately...


[SNINN_1: Icicle Inn] First floor of inn

Talk to the innkeeper

It's colder than usual today...

It's 200 gil , you wanna spend the night?


If you have enough money

Enjoy your stay!

If you don't have enough

You don't have enough money.


Please come again.

Before punching Elena

Talk to the guys at the table

You heard about the gnarly hill in this town? They tell me it's off limits!

What luck! We came all this way...crap!

Talk to person?

We came from Costa del Sol to snowboard, but we're just about to leave!

Talk to the guy near the furnace

Phew, what is it? Don't get too close, or it'll burn ya.

[SNINN_2: Icicle Inn] Second floor of inn

Check item hidden behind window

Received "X-Potion"!

[SNINN_B1: Icicle Inn Bar] Basement of inn

Talk to the bartender

I've heard there's a snow woman, at the Great Glacier, that hates hot springs...

But I think it's just a myth to scare off visitors.

Before punching Elena

Check the bathroom


Check the bathroom again

You're a real freakazoid, aren't you?

After punching Elena, before you go snowboarding

Check the bathroom


After you go snowboarding

Check the bathroom

I'm still in here! All right!?

Before Meteor is summoned

Talk to the girl at the bar? need to trigger something first

If you trigger the event

Welcome! You look like a STRONG one...

If you want, I could lend you an ear...?


Not interested

What's with you!? You make me sick!


What's with you!? You make me sick!

Talk to her again?

If she didn't say you make her sick

I got bored listening to his stories.


Oh yeah?

Talk to the guy at the bar

If you agreed to lend the girl an ear

Am I boring you?


If you go further North, I heard there's a Huge Crater.

Something huge must've fallen from the sky a long time ago!

Talk to the guy on the left with red hair

I heard some guy went to the Great Glacier in the North.

What an idiot. Is he thinkin' 'bout going to that hot spring?

Talk to the guy in the middle

He's probably gonna get lost in the glacier and freeze to death.

No matter how well equipped he is, out there in that cold on the glacier, I give him two days at the most.

Talk to the guy on the right

You thinkin' of going North?

That's my plan

Well...if you're going past this town you'll need a map.

Maybe there's one left at Mr. Holzoff's house. He used to be a mountain climber.


Yeah, we really don't have anything here, but make yourself at home.

Talk to the guys at the table on the left

Do you know what a Cetra is?

What was the Cetra......? Oh yeah, it's the same as the Ancients, right?

Yeah, a Cetra lived in this town a long time ago.

Her name was Ifalna, and she knew about a lot of things...

Whadaya mean?

I heard she was abducted by the Shinra and was taken somewhere.

Shinra and the Ancients... I smell somethin' fishy...

After Meteor is summoned

Talk to the guy at the table on the left

With all the strange things happening in the world, I kinda understand why people want to leave...

Talk to the other guy at the table on the left

Maybe we'd better leave town soon too.

Let's go to that island in the South! What was it called......hmm?

Yeah, yeah, I heard that there's a town called Mideel on a southern island.

Professor Gast

[SNMAYOR: Gast's House] Inside second house on the left

Check item in the basement

Received "Turbo Ether"!

Check the second machine

Play the Video?


The Original Crisis

Camera's ready!

Then, Ifalna, please tell us about the Cetra.

2000 years ago, our ancestors, the Cetra, heard the cries of the Planet.

The first ones to discover the Planet's wound were the Cetra at the Knowlespole.

Tell us Ifalna... Where is the land called 'Knowlespole'?

Knowlespole refers to this area. The Cetra then began a Planet-reading.

Ifalna, what exactly does Planet-reading entail?

...I can't explain it very well, but it's like having a conversation with the Planet...

It said something fell from the sky making a large wound.

Thousands of Cetra pulled together, trying to heal the Planet...

But, due to the severity of the wound, it was only able to heal itself, over many years.

Do the Ancients, rather, the Cetra, have special powers to heal the Planet?

No, it's not that kind of power. The life force of all living things on this Planet becomes the energy.

The Cetra tried desperately to cultivate the land so as not to diminish the needed energy...

Hmm, even here so close to the North Cave, the snow never melts.

Is that because the planet's energy is gathered here to heal its injury?

Yes, the energy that was needed to heal the Planet withered away the land...then the Planet...

The Planet tried to persuade the Cetra to leave the Knowlespole, but...

Ifalna... Let's take a break.

I'm all right... When the Cetra...were preparing to part with the land they loved...

That's when it appeared!

It looked like...our...our dead mothers ...and our dead brothers. Showing us spectres of their past.

Who is the person that appeared at the North Cave? I have't any idea.

That's when the one who injured the Planet... or the 'crisis from the sky', as we call him, came.

He first approached as a friend, deceived them, and finally...... gave them the virus.

The Cetra were attacked by the virus and went mad... transforming into monsters.

Then, just as he had at the Knowlespole.

He approached other Cetra clans...... infecting them with... the virus...

You don't look well... Let's call it a day.

What is "Weapon?"

Ifalna, can you comment on the thing called 'Weapon'?

Yes, Professor.

The one the Professor mistook for a Cetra... was named Jenova. That is the 'crisis from the sky'.

The Planet knew it had to destroy the 'crisis from the sky'...

You see, as long as Jenova exists, the Planet will never be able to fully heal itself.

Back then, Weapon was a weapon the Planet produced of it's own will?

Yes, but... There is no record of Weapon ever being used.

A small number of the surviving Cetra defeated Jenova, and confined it.

The Planet produced Weapon... But it was no longer necessary to use it.

So, Weapon no longer exists on this Planet?

Weapon cannot vanish. remains asleep somewhere on the Planet.

Even though Jenova is confined, it could come back to life at some time...

The Planet has not fully healed itself yet. It is still, watching Jenova.

Where is Weapon?

I don't know...... I can't hear the voice of the Planet well...

Times...have changed. The probably watching this situation closely.

...Thank you, Ifalna, that will be all for today...


Daughter's Record: 10th Day after birth

What are you doing, Profes...... I mean, honey?

Oh, I'm thinking of taping it on video. But, the video's not working right...

What are you going to tape? Is there still something I haven't mentioned?

No, that's not it. I'm going to record my beautiful daughter.

And when she's sleeping, her face ...looks like an angel.

First, we have to figure out her name. We can take the video later!

I've already decided! If it's a girl, then it'll be Aeris. That's that!

You are SO selfish! But Aeris is a good name!

Hee's a good name, considering it came out of that forgetful head of yours!

Right!? Oh, the video tape......

Daughter's Record: 20th Day after birth

Video again? You just got through taping!

......... Please don't say it that way.

It's our lovely daughter, both yours...and mine!

Don't you want to capture her childhood on videotape?

If you keep doting on her like that, she won't grow up to be strong...

Aeris is different from the other children. I wonder what dangers await her...?

Never say that! I will protect you and Aeris no matter what!!

You and Aeris are my only treasures. I'll never let you go!!

I feel so much better now, darling.

If I hadn't met you, I......

Who could that--I was just about to...


How dare they intrude on our 'private time' together!

I'll send them away.

Yes, at once!!

Who the devil?

It, it's them!!

Heh, heh, heh...... I've been searching for you, Ifalna... or should I say, Cetra!

Long time no see, Professor Gast!

Hojo... How did you know?

Believe me, I had to turn over a stone or two to find you.

Two years I waited... That's how much I wanted this new sample......Ha, ha, ha.

...New sample? You don't mean Aeris!?

Hmm, Aeris? What a nice name......Ha, ha, ha.

That's it! I'm severing all ties with the Shinra.

Hojo, please leave.


Please, Aeris has nothing to do with it! All you want is me, right?

I'll need all of you for my experiment.

You understand don't you, Professor Gast? We can change the future of the Planet!

Don't worry, Ifalna. I'll take care of this!

Please don't put up a fight. I don't want any harm to come to my precious sample.

Mmm? What a funny looking camera. Guard! Destroy it!

Be careful with her!! Ha, ha, ha ......

Wh...what are you doing, Professor!?

Ifalna! Take Aeris and run!!

Eyaaaaaah... Darling......!!

Oh, and uh... don't forget the child!

Hmm, a video? The Ancients...Weapon!?

Heh, heh, heh...a mountain of treasure! Thank you Professor...Ha, ha, ha
