Bio

With the number thirteen tattooed on his fire-red fur, this leonine creature is reduced to a research specimen in the hands of scientists of the Shinra corporation. This does not, however, dilute his beastly strength — or his intellect. Released during a mission to save Aeris, "Red XIII" attacks his captor, then surprises and befriends his rescuers by speaking in the human tongue, politely and with cool calculations about their escape plan.

Hailing from Cosmo Canyon, the headdressed "beast" is part of a tribe that protects their land from marauders. Though blind in one eye, Red XIII can take down enemies with his claws and fangs, or tackle them with his whole body altogether. Even the elders, conscious of their lengthy life cycles, consider him loyal for a forty-eight-year-old "adolescent."
