Red XIII is a mystery. With his feral appearance and striking red fur, Red XIII is clearly something other than human. Yet his mature bearing and perceptive nature mark him as a being of high intelligence.
Written by Super Moogle
Much to the surprise of Cloud and his friends, he can speak in human words as well, with all the eloquence of a well-educated scholar. Though he is young by the standards of his species, Red XIII often acts as the voice of reason, acting with an uncanny wisdom and a calm composure.
The party first encounters Red XIII in the bowels of Hojo's laboratory, a captive of the twisted mad scientist for use in his depraved experiments. Before Hojo's sick plans can come to fruition, the group rescues both Red and the equally imprisoned Aeris. He aids their escape, eventually following them to Cosmo Canyon, a curious area populated by others of his species. There he agrees to join the party, offering his formidable services as a trained warrior.
