The events of Final Fantasy VII and consequently Final Fantasy VII Remaker revolve around the multinational Shinra which exploits the energy of the Planet, the Mako, for its own interests, draining it slowly and inexorably.
For this reason, a large underground organization, the Avalanche , has arisen at Cosmo Canyon , which has set itself the goal of putting an end to the machinations of the Midgar industrial company before its actions can destroy the world. Who is the head of the Avalanche, the main anti Shinra group? Originally the leadership of the Avalanche was assumed by two characters seen in the prequel Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII , which is Eife and Fuhito , who took the reins of the group shortly after its foundation following the Wutai War .
In the events narrated in the seventh chapter to guide the Avalanche in Midgar is none other than Barret Wallace , one of the main protagonists of Final Fantasy VII controlled by the player from the early stages of the game. To stop the Shinra, Barret targets the Mako Reactors scattered on the edge of the gigantic metropolis: the beginning of Final Fantasy VII narrates the attack on the Reactor of Sector 1 , where Barrett and some of his companions ( Jesse , Biggs and Wedge ) they infiltrate to blow up the reactor, the first of eight surrounding Midgar. Accompanying them on a mission is Cloud Strife, a mercenary hired by Barret specifically for the delicate mission. This is just the beginning of an incredible story made of intrigues, revelations, twists and emotions.
