    If you’re new to Final Fantasy VII builds, you might be wondering why these two characters, Angeal and Genesis, have a wing, like Sephiroth. Today we will talk about it. Please note that there will be major spoilers for Crisis Core and the light ones for Final Fantasy VII, so read at your own risk.

    Are Angeal and Genesis like Sephiroth?

    Angeal, Genesis, and Sephiroth all have wings as a result of a mutation caused by a series of experiments involving Jenova cells. Angeal and Genesis are the fruits of Project G, that is, the Gillian Project, which was spearheaded by Professor Hollander. He injected them with Jenova’s cells, hoping that whoever receives his cells will inherit Jenova’s abilities. Gillian gave birth to Angeal and passed her cells to him. Genesis was injected with Gillian’s DNA.

    Genesis first showed signs of degradation because it was a secondhand recipient of Giliian cells. Angeal was the next affected. Sephiroth did not mutate because he was directly injected by Jenova’s cells as a fetus.

    Why does Sephiroth have wings in Final Fantasy VII?

    In the original game, Sephiroth does not actually have the iconic black wing that he is known to have today. That was introduced in Kingdom Hearts, and the Final Fantasy VII team liked the idea so much that they gave Sephiroth the black wing in Advent Children. There has been no canonical tradition explanation for this.

    However, at the end of Final Fantasy VII, Sephiroth grows white wings (similar to Angeal’s) to show how much his body has mutated due to Jenova’s DNA. In fact, no one really knows where “Sephiroth” and “Jenova” begin and end in their Advent Children form.
