For the past couple of months, Squall and Laguna, the
two main characters of Square's upcoming blockbuster Final Fantasy VIII,
were the only two characters with artwork and character descriptions.
RPGamer has now discovered artwork and descriptions of three more major
characters in the game: Rinoa, Seifer, and Zell.
Rinoa Heartilly, previous translated as "Lenore," is
described as a pleasant, joyful woman, and plays a large role in the
story. Her character is also expected to evolve as far more than the
love interest in the game (she is most likely the woman Squall is holding
in the logo).
Seifer is a new character that hasn't been heard of
until now. Seifer is a trained fighter and soldier, and has some sort of
rivalry with Squall. Now confirmed, Seifer is the man with the white
cape in the FF8 demo packaged with the recently released Brave Fencer
Musashiden, in Japan.
Finally, Zell, also translated recently as "Zeru," is a
spiky-haired teen with some sort of marking on his face. He is a fighter
who is seeking entrance into the military school Garden, the school
Squall is enrolled in. Take a look at RPGamer later this week for far
more demo coverage.
