Eventually, Fujin and Raijin abandon him and he is defeated shortly afterward. Seifer escapes, kidnapping Rinoa and bringing her to Adel. At the end of the game, Seifer is seen fishing and having fun with Fujin and Raijin.
Nomura had originally intended Seifer not only as Squall's rival, but also as part of the love triangle between him, Squall, and Rinoa. Although this concept was shelved in the final script, Seifer remains Squall's rival and his appearance was designed to contrast with Squall's. They have equivalent but mirrored scars on their faces and their jackets are of opposing color and length.
Both characters use gunblades; Squall's gunblade is larger and requires two hands, while Seifer's gunblade is lighter and can be wielded with one hand.

As a child, Quistis stayed at an orphanage with most of the main characters. She then lived with foster parentswith whom she never developed any intimacy, before moving to Balamb Garden  at age ten. For her part, Quistis never shows any indication of being aware of their existence. Quistis initially joins Squall to prepare him for his upcoming field exam. She later takes Squall into her confidence and tells him personally about her demotion.
This furthers the player's perception of Squall's awkwardness and anti-social tendencies. When Irvine refreshes the main characters' memories about the orphanage, they remember that Squall's asocial behavior began when Ellone, an older sister figure to Squall, left the orphanage unexpectedly. As a result of these revelations, Quistis recognizes that her feelings for Squall are more sisterly than romantic. Quistis was originally supposed to fill this part, but Nomura decided a long skirt worn over pants would look better.
The role was eventually passed to Selphie. Nomura was surprised when the writers cast her as a teacher, despite being around the same age as the rest of the group.
Selphie Tilmitt[ edit ] "Selphie" redirects here. For the Indonesian designer, see Selphie Bong. She is active and energetic, although slightly clumsy. She wields nunchaku in battle,  and her Limit Break Slot allows the player to cast a random spell numerous times as well as certain magic used exclusively in her limit break.
She asks Squall to show her around because she recently transferred. During the Dollet exam, Selphie joins Squall's team after Seifer abandons them. When Galbadia launches missiles at Trabia Garden, she reacts with outrage and helps destroy the missile base.
Selphie was the second character that Nomura drew, after Squall, intentionally giving her an impractical hairstyle. When he first designed Selphie, Nomura drew her in overalls; however, he realized that none of the characters would be wearing a skirt.
In the end, he gave Selphie a mini-skirt and let Quistis have pants. Seventeen years old,  Zell is a martial artist who fits the role of unarmed character, just like Tifa Lockhart did in the previous game, Final Fantasy VII. Zell attacks with punches and kicks, his weapons being gloves,  and his Limit Break, Duel, requires the player to input button combinations on the controller to deal damage. Zell lived at the same orphanage as many of the other protagonists; this is where Seifer first began to bully him.
He was later adopted by the Dincht family in the town of Balamb. He is voiced by Noriaki Sugiyama in Japanese. He is one of the Garden's elite sharpshooters,  always carrying his rifle. Moments before the assassination attempt, he explains to Squall that he always chokes under pressure. In spite of his nerves and under intense pressure, he fires an accurate shot, but Edea uses magic to stop the bullet.
However, the others could not remember this because of their use of Guardian Forces GFmagical beings who cause severe long-term memory loss as a side effect.
He gave Irvine a handsome appearance, but a casual personality, hoping that this would make him less attractive than Squall. Keeping with this idea, Nomura gave him goggles; however, this idea was abandoned in favor of an American cowboy-like appearance to set him apart from other goggle-wearing characters in the Final Fantasy series.
His weapons' name is given as "katal" in the English localization of the game.
