About Tifa Lockhart

Tifa and Cloud used to live next to each other in Nibelheim. When Tifa went to Mount Nibel to search for her mother, Cloud followed along to protect her. However, both fell from a bridge, leaving Tifa severely injuring. Her father blamed Cloud, thinking it was Cloud who encouraged Tifa to go up the mountain. Following the incident, Tifa and Cloud both lost touch and only found each other several years later.

While she’s a tough woman on the outside, Tifa is a shy and emphatic person on the inside. She is selfless in that she makes an effort to take care of other people, offering them sanctuary and serving as an emotional crutch for other members of AVALANCHE. She bears an intense hatred for Shinra because of its role in the destruction of her hometown. She uses her advanced martial arts skills in battle, which includes her knuckles as weapons.
