Background/History: Aeris Gainsborough is the last of the Cetra, a race of magic-using humans who lived millenia ago. Also known as Ancients, they all but died out, leaving a single family line. When just a child, Aeris was captured by Shinra along with her mother, Ilfana. The pair of them barely escaped Shinra's lab, but the effort cost Ilfana her life. The pair made their way to the slums of Midgar, and with her dying breath Ilfana begged a woman to take care of her daughter.

The woman, Elmyra, raised Aeris of her own. As Aeris grew, they both became aware of Aeris' unusual powers. At times, she would hear what she said were "the voices of the planet," telling her things of far away places. On one occaision, Aeris told Elmyra how her husband had just died in the war, long before the news would have normally reached her.

Aeris was frequently hounded by Shinra, who wanted her back for their experiments. Rather than take her by force and risk injuring her, Shinra was content to wait. So Aeris grew up under constant threat. One day, she found a young man named Cloud Strife, who had barely survived falling from the upper levels of the city. She healed him, and hired him as a bodyguard to protect her from Shinra. Thus Aeris began her travels with Cloud and the members of AVALANCHE.

Personality/Motivation: Aeris is a stubborn girl, through and through. Although far from spoilt, she is determined to get her way, and not afraid of annoying people. She is still at heart a nice and pleasant girl, mature beyond her years. As a Cetra, she feels responsible to protect the planet, and will take any risk to save it when a great threat emerges. She grows to like Cloud, and feels some envy for the close relationship he shares with his friend Tifa.

She is still hunted by the Shinra corporation, who prefer to wait and bide their time with her. Her nature and powers have also garnered the attention of Sephiroth, who believes her to be a threat to his plans.

Powers/Tactics: As a Cetra, Aeris is unnaturally in tune with the spirit of the planet. At times, she can hear the voices of the planet, telling her of far away places or of threats world-wide. At times, she can even sense threats to the planet as a whole. When desperate, she can call on the power of the planet to heal herself and her allies.

Aeris is also trained in the use of materia. Once equipped with some of the party's materia, she can tap their power to cast spells, boost her abilities or provide any number of odd powers. Note that although Aeris will have the same materia abilities as her allies, her spells will always be more powerful due to her magical nature.

Appearance: Aeris is a slim, beautiful young woman of twenty-one. She has long brown hair, tied into a high ponytail with a pink ribbon, and clear green eyes. She wears a simple pink dress with a red vest and thick boots - pragmatism overriding style in the slums. She carries a heavy staff for self-defense, but is wary to use it.
