This is to capture Sephiroth's immense pain and loneliness, staring at Jenova's head band. Sephiroth was a hero and a good man before the events leading him to discover that he is a designed creature and not fully human. He rejected Genesis because of his desire to be a good mentor (pre ff7). Sephiroth cared for all his brothers in Soldier, Cloud, and Jenova. He never learned his true mother is Lucrecia and its vaguely suggested in earlier games that Vincent slept with Lucrecia, and she was never slept with Hojo. Hojo thought that implanting Jenova cells into Lucrecia impregnated her, however, the impregnation came from Vincent soon before, and thus making Sephiroth having 2 fathers Hojo, Vincent and 2 mothers Lucrecia and Jenova.
Sephiroth reached out to Cloud for help, when he was going crazy with grief and Cloud turned him away. Sephiroth at this point had no one. Zack, Genesis, Angeal have all died; the only people Sephiroth knew on speaking terms. Thus the tormented Sephiroth we know today.

Fate - monstrous
And empty
Fate - monstrous
And empty
Fierce anger, anger and sorrow
Fierce anger, anger and sorrow
Wild, terrible fate
Do not remain, remain in memory
Do not remain, remain in memory
Sephiroth, Sephiroth
Come here, give me death once more
- mixed translated versions of "One Winged Angel"

Sephiroth is a Hebrew name meaning how the divine show themselves, and the 10 Sephirot make up the tree of life.


You have some freaking talent! I love how you drew him, and the details made me squeal.

Awesome details for my favorite character of this game!

But I gotta ask . . . what reason you had for drawing a 2nd wing for him? I always associate him as the One Winged Angel.

One is real and the other took inspiration from his other shape safer sephiroth
