Vincent is a mystical man, stern
and upright while at the same time dark and mysterious. His primary weapon is a
triple-barrel revolver called "Cereberus". His past connection
with Shinra, Inc. is what made him join Cloud
and the others. He may seem frail at first glance, but hidden inside his
body lurks a fearsome power.
After sleeping for years in a coffin, Vincent is found in the basement of Shinra
mansion by Cloud and the gang, who had managed to retrieve the key to his room
from a safe. Vincent was surprised by Cloud's knowledge of Sephiroth,
recognizing Sephiroth as Lucrecia's son, and demanded an explanation. Cloud
explains the past events and the atrocities Sephiroth has committed, but this
only served to make Vincent feel even more guilty for his failure and he shuts
himself back in the coffin.
After some further coaxing from Cloud, he emerges from the coffin again
and tells who he was and about Lucrecia, before sealing himself again. But when
Cloud leaves the room and begins to head back upstairs, Vincent catches up to
him and joins Cloud after learning that his group may eventually meet up with
Hojo with whom he had a vendetta.
