Tifa Lockhart is one of the main protagonists in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII. She appears as a playable character in Final Fantasy VII, and is the deuteragonist of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. In Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII- and Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- she plays a supportive role. Tifa is the only one of the cast who knew Cloud Strife when they were children and is his childhood friend. She is strongly opposed to the Shinra Electric Power Company, joining the resistance group AVALANCHE to fight them. Though she has a strong will and possesses great physical strength and martial arts skills, Tifa also has a motherly streak and is caring, though she is shy to express herself. She supports Cloud as his comrades and helps him fight his nemesis Sephiroth, bearing the same deep hatred for him as Cloud does due to the destruction of their hometown.
