Here's a little something to help you dicide!! :p

Squall Leonhart
Age: 17
Sex: Male
Height: 177 cm (5'8")
Blood type: AB
Birthdate: August 23rd
Weapon: Gunblade

The main character of ff 8, Squall is a short-spoken and emotionless
young man. A student of Balamb Garden, he's an introvert with little
concern for his comrades; few can actually claim to understand him. A
cold and mysterious guy.

Limit Break: Renzokuken
Squall launches into an array of slashes, and sometimes finishes off
his 'Renzokuken' with a spectacular blow, which varies accordingly to
the type of Gunblade he's carrying.

Finishing Blows:

Rough Divide: Squall charges at a single enemy and performs an
upward slice.
Available to: All Gunblades.

Fated Circle: Squall releases an energy wave while in mid-air with
his Gunblade, which targets all enemies.
Available to: Shear Trigger Gunblade upwards.

Blasting Zone: Squall's Gunblade forms a gigantic beam pillar that
smashes all opponents.
Available to: Flame Saber Gunblade upwards.

Lion Heart: Squall slashes a single target 18 times, doing heavy
damage with each cut. The Lion Heart move was termed
'End of Heart' in the Japanese version.
Available to: Lionheart Gunblade.

Rinoa Heartilly
Age: 17
Sex: Female
Height: 163 cm (5'4")
Blood type: Unknown
Birthdate: March 3rd
Weapon: Blaster Edge

Final Fantasy 8's female lead, Rinoa, is both angelic and bubbly. She
loves to speak her mind, and has the habit of acting on impulse. Rinoa
and Squall met during one of SeeD's inauguration parties.

Limit Breaks: Combine / Angel Wing (Varly)
Rinoa summons Angelo, her pet dog. She's capable of dealing out
several unique attacks. Angelo learns new tricks when Rinoa reads 'Pet
Pals'. The respective skill then appears in Rinoa's 'Specials' window.

Angelo's Tricks:

Angelo Rush: Random counter-attack, Angelo charges at a single foe.
(Learnt Trick)

(Learnt in Pet Pals Vol. 2)

Seifer Almasy
Age: 18
Sex: Male
Height: 188 cm (6'2")
Blood type: O
Birthdate: December 22nd
Weapon: Gunblade

Seifer is gifted with natural fighting abilities, but his eagerness for
victory and impatience makes him one of Balamb Garden's problematic
students. He is aware of Squall's capability, and views him fiercely as
a rival.

Limit Break: Fire Cross (Shimatsusuken)
Seifer casts a spell on the enemy, then gathers energy upon his Gun
-blade before unleashing multiple energy arcs which home in on their
targets, leaving spectacular green trails behind them.

Weapon: Gloves

Young and brash Zell aspires to be just like his grandfather, a famous
military figure. His ambitions made him enter Balamb Garden at the age
of 13. Zell doesn't give in without a fight, however his actions make
him appear somewhat immature and rash.

Limit Break: Duel
Zell displays his hand-to-hand prowess with a dazzling combo of skills.

via collecting issues of 'Combat King'. He may also learn some of his
special moves when he reaches higher levels.

Quistis Trepe
Age: 18

Birthdate: October 4th
Weapon: Chain Whip

Orphaned at the age of 5, Quistis joined Garden at 10 and officially
became a member of SeeD when she reached 15. She's a good mentor
towards Squall. Quistis is one who's not used to setbacks, and demands
only the best from herself.

Limit Break: Blue Magic (Enemy Skills)
Quistis draws from her massive collection of enemy skills to unleash
upon her opponents. Unlike the rest, Quistis learns new skills via

Irvine Kinneas
Age: 17
Sex: Male
Height: 185 cm (6'0")
Blood type: A
Birthdate: November 24th
Weapon: Shot Gun

Irvine is full of confidence of himself and his shooting skills are
matched by none. He hails from Galbadia Garden, and calls himself
'Garden's Elite Sharpshooter'. Easy-going and humourous, Irvine's
also a big flirt.

Limit Break: Shot
Irvine selects from his collection of special ammo and unleashes it
upon his opponents. Hit R1 repeatedly to fire his gun. Bullets are
purchased from stores, obtained from enemies or received via 'Ammo
Refinement' and 'Card Mod.' menu abilities. Each type of ammunition
has its own unique element.

Ammunition:

Normal Ammo: Standard damage to single target.
(1 Screw = 8 Normal Ammo)

Shotgun Ammo: Standard damage to all targets.
Fast Ammo: Low damage to all targets. Extremely quick firing rate.
(1 Normal Ammo or Shotgun Ammo = 1 or 2 Fast Ammo
respectively)

Fire Ammo: Moderate to high fire-typed damage to all targets.
(1 Fuel, 1 Bomb Fragment or 1 Red Fang = 10, 20 or 40
Fire Ammo respectively)

Dark Ammo: Standard status-changing damage to single target.
(1 Poison Powder or 1 Venom Fang = 10 or 20 Dark Ammo
respectively)

Demolition Ammo: Heavy damage to single target. Slow firing rate.
(1 Missile, 1 Running Fire or 1 Cactus Thorn = 20,
40 or 40 Demolition Ammo respectively)

AP Ammo: Heavy damage to single target. Average firing rate.
(1 Sharp Spike or 1 Chef's Knife = 10 or 20 AP Ammo
respectively)

= 5, 10 or 20 Pulse Ammo respectively)

Selphie Tilmitt
Age: 17
Sex: Female
Height: 157 cm (5'2")
Blood type: B
Birthdate: July 16th
Weapon: Nunchaku

My favorite (cause she reminds me of Sofia :p ), a student of Trabia Garden, Selphie is known to be responsible yet
naive in her thinking. She's playful and child-like, but overall
Selphie's comfortable to be with.

Limit Break: Slot
Selphie casts a random spell from her slot machine. When this window
appears, the 1st option, 'Do Over' lets you scroll through the spells
randomly; the 2nd, 'Cast' makes Selphie cast it, often with doubled
or tripled results. Remember that time runs while you're selecting
spells, so be quick.

Exclusive Spells:

Full-Cure: Completely restores all members' HPs.
Wall: Endows party members with Protect and Shell.
Rapture: Takes the target away from battle. Useless against bosses
and flying monsters.
The End: Eliminates practically any enemy (including bosses!). Useless
against undeads and the final boss. 'The End' appears very
rarely.

Your chances of using a rare spell increases when Selphie's HP is low,
and when she has a high Luck rating.

Laguna Loire
Age: 27
Sex: Male
Height: 181 cm (5'9")
Blood type: B
Birthdate: March 1st
Weapon: Machine Gun

A man with a strong sense of justice, Laguna believes in protecting
the weak. Formerly a soldier, he's now a journalist with Timber Maniacs,
having decided to trade in his sword for a pen. Optimistic and cheerful,
Laguna is very much a people's person.

Limit Break: Desperado
Laguna hurls a grenade at the enemy, leaps and latches onto a rope
while opening continuous fire with his Machine Gun, and ends his Limit
Break with the detonation of the grenade, throwing the enemy sky-high.
Causes damage to all targets.

Ward Zabac
Sex: Male
Age: 25
Height: 217 cm (7'0")
Blood type: A
Birthdate: February 25th
Weapon: Harpoon

Tough-talking and ominous, Ward sports a scar (which seems to be all
the rage nowadays in ff 8) and a big, mean harpoon. Not someone you'll
want to agitate. He's pretty at ease with his pals, Laguna and Kiros
though.

Limit Break: Massive Anchor
Ward hurls his harpoon into the air, leaps up to retrieve it, then
pierces the enemies with a downward thrust, causing a massive explosion.
Affects all enemies.

Kiros Seagill
Age: 23
Sex: Male
Height: 191 cm (6'3")
Blood type: O
Birthdate: July 6th
Weapon: Katals

Looking much more refined than his fellow counterpart Ward, Kiros
formerly served in the Galbadian army, with katals as his weapon. Both
Ward and him have a very good working relationship with Laguna.

Limit Break: Blood Pain
Kiros goes into a slashing frenzy with his katals, approximately
cutting the enemy 7 to 8 times. Critical hits appear at random. Single
target.

Cid Kramer
Age: Unknown
Sex: Male
Height: Unknown
Blood type: Unknown
Birthdate: Unknown

This lovable character once again makes an appearance :D , this time as
the headmaster of Balamb Garden! He's well-liked by students for his
kindly nature and friendly student policies. Cid tends to be a little
long-winded this time round, and contrary to previous Cids, he has
trouble dealing with mechanics initially.
