Many Years Ago:
· The Cetra, a nomadic magical race which may or may not have originated on the Planet, settle after a long and arduous journey. Some Cetra (later known as Ancients) choose to continue their journey, whilst others settle down and eventually become humans. A few true Cetra still survive, however.
2000 Years Ago:
· Jenova, a malevolent creature, crash-lands on the planet and causes a huge rift, the Northern Crater. Jenova infects the Cetra with a virus, turning them into monsters. Most of the remaining Cetra are slaughtered as the humans hide out in their new settlements, avoiding the terror. The Planet creates five Weapons to battle Jenova, but they are never used. A small number of surviving Cetra succeed in containing her in the Northern Crater. The Planet begins to heal itself using its life energy. (It never fully recovers.)
Long Afterwards:
· The Shinra Corporation emerges as the leading energy company in the world. They use Mako energy, which is drawn from the bowels of the earth. Mako is also known as Lifestream, a spirit force which is shared by the planet and everyone living on it. Condensed Mako, known as Materia, draws a high market for its magical properties. Eventually Shinra diversifies into military, political, urban development, scientific, astronomical, and communications departments.
· The Turks are formed as an offshoot of Shinra; they carry out less desirable missions like kidnapping and assassinations. They are led by a man named Tseng, and his second- and third-in-commands are Reno and Rude.
Around 40 Years Ago:
· The peaceful tribe living in Cosmo Canyon is attacked by the violent Gi tribe. Seto, a wolf-like creature, protects the Canyon by going through a secret passage, and succeeds in holding off the Gi tribe, but in the end is pierced by their petrifying arrows and turns to stone. The Canyon tribe, including Seto's son, Nanaki, believes Seto turned tail and fled. Only Seto's father-in-law, Bugenhagen, knows the truth.
29-30 Years Ago:
· Professor Gast, Shinra's leading scientist, heads a team including a young man named Hojo, a woman named Lucrecia, and a Turk named Vincent, into the Nibelheim Mountains. Gast excavates the body of Jenova, whom he believes to be an Ancient, and sets up his research lab in the Shinra Mansion in the nearby town. Vincent falls for Lucrecia, but he also sees that she is in love with Hojo, and resigns himself to that fate.
28 Years Ago:
· Lucrecia's son is born and given the name Sephiroth. He is not told his true origins, however, instead being told that his mother, named Jenova, died giving birth to him.
· When Vincent discovers that Sephiroth is a result of Hojo having injected Lucrecia's yet-unborn baby with Jenova's DNA, Vincent loses it and confronts Hojo. Hojo incapacitates Vincent and conducts an operation on him, turning him into an unstable, mutated form capable of mutating further when angered. In disgrace, Vincent enters a coffin in the Shinra Mansion and falls into a deep sleep.
22-25 Years Ago:
· Dr. Gast also flees Hojo and runs to Icicle Inn, where he discovers a Cetra named Ifalna. He videotapes his conversations with her, and eventually falls in love with her. They have a child they call Aeris. However, Hojo storms the place and attempts to take Ifalna and Aeris. Dr. Gast is killed trying to protect them, and they are captured by Hojo. Ifalna somehow manages to take Aeris and escape Hojo's grasp. She makes it to the Midgar Sector 7 Train Station, half-dead. She is discovered by a woman named Elmyra, who promises to take care of Aeris. Ifalna gives Aeris the White Materia, a legendary stone which has the power to call the Holy spell if the need should arise. However, since the procedure for doing so is complicated, Aeris thinks the Materia doesn't do anything at all.
On or Around 15 Years Ago:
· Shinra's military wing proceeds to declare war on Wutai, an Oriental village. They are eventually victorious, and its leader Godo humbled. Eventually Wutai loses its martial status and becomes a tourist attraction.
· Cid Highwind, creator of the Tiny Bronco biplane, is given the go-ahead by Shinra to launch a space rocket from his home town. Having looked forward to this time for ages, his excitement is mounting when his assistant, Shera, discovers a malfunction in an energy tank. She refuses to leave the soon-to-be-burning-hot chamber, and Cid forces himself to shut the rocket down before it can ignite. He refuses to forgive Shera for destroying his dream, and Shera lives with him in penance from then on, acting as a servant.
15-7 Years Ago:
· Hojo furthers his experiment with cells from the body of Jenova, which he has excavated. He experiments with infusing soldiers with Jenova cells; the resultant person has abilities far beyond normal, easily seen by the glow in the person's eye. Thus is formed SOLDIER, Shinra's elite force.
· Sephiroth is introduced into SOLDIER and quickly rises in the ranks. He is monitored continuously and shows promise far beyond anyone else's in SOLDIER.
· Lucrecia hides herself out of fear that the cells inside her will turn her into a menace.
· Aeris begins to show a strange talent; for instance, she is able to sense the death of Elmyra's husband out at war with Wutai before Elmyra actually gets word of it. Eventually she gathers the interest of the Turks, as commanded by Hojo, who try many times to capture Aeris, but she eludes them. Aeris takes up a job as a flower girl in the Midgar slums.
· Cloud Strife and Tifa Lockheart grow up next to each other in the city of Nibelheim; they are not particular friends, however much Cloud would like it to be otherwise. After the death of Tifa's mother, she determinedly takes a trip into the Nibel Mountains. Cloud follows her, but a bridge they both stand on breaks, and Cloud is blamed for the injuries suffered by Tifa. They later have a conversation by a well where Cloud tells Tifa of his desire to go to Midgar and join SOLDIER, and promises to come back for Tifa if he should make it big in Midgar.
· Hojo continues his experiments even further in Nibelheim, attempting to actually douse human beings in condensed Mako. Eventually the humans become completely unrecognizable, but they are monitored closely in sealed containers. The suspended-animation device containing Jenova is moved there as well.
