A corrupt company, by the name of ShinRa is draining the energy out of the (nameless) planet and conducting expiriments on living things. Enviromental and social callamities, such as the pollution of the air and seas, overpopulation, high drug rate and treating women like objects. A mercenary and a rough and tough organization by the name of Avalanche must put an end to ShinRa, but a couple of ShinRa victims might be causing a bigger threat. One of the ShinRa victims is an alien that crash-landed on the planet and killed an ancient race. The other ShinRa victim is a man in a trench coat that wants to rule the world and summon the doomsday meteorite. Written by Jenova Synthesis <mayu_roxx@hotmail.com>
