Name:Genesis Rhapsodos
Birthdate:Feb 12
Genesis Rhapsodos also known as G, is a character in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- and Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-. He is a 1st Class SOLDIER born from the Jenova Project, and is initially believed by Sephiroth to be the namesake for "Project G" in the Jenova Project. Initially a loyal SOLDIER member who wishes to prove himself a hero like Sephiroth, Genesis begins to suffer from genetic degradation due to his imperfect infusion of Jenova's cells, and leads a rebellion against Shinra with the intent to find a cure. He serves as the main antagonist of Crisis Core.

Genesis's physical appearance is based on Gackt, who is one of the most famous Japanese pop/rock idols. Gackt also wrote and performed Dirge of Cerberus's theme song, "Redemption", and actually wears the Genesis costume in the music video, though with a different hairstyle.

Beyond this, Genesis's design bears similarities to Sephiroth, including the long coat, black clothing underneath, black boots, shoulder guards, and a large sword. Genesis is right-handed and bears a large wing on his left side, in contrast to Sephiroth, who is left-handed and has a wing on his right side. While Sephiroth's uniform and design are predominantly black and white, Genesis's is red and black. Gackt had a small amount of input on the costume design, mostly to ensure it would allow for easy movement, but also to help settle on the color scheme, which had previously been intended to be either white or black.

Crisis Core's beginning portrays Genesis as a deserter, arrogant and childish. At first, he seems to be a simple character, but as the story progresses, the conflict within Genesis becomes increasingly visible. Genesis was adopted, causing him to feel betrayed by both his true and false parents, one of the reasons for his departure from SOLDIER. His main source of turmoil comes from the secrets of his birth he discovers after the injury he sustains during training, that leads him to resent Shinra and all those associated with it. He takes pride in the handsome figure he cuts, his fighting style and the popularity they garner him, however, he does not like mingling directly with people, and only opens himself up to his companions, Sephiroth and Angeal.

Genesis is obsessed with LOVELESS, a famous poem that has been adapted into numerous plays. According to the Genesis fan club "Study Group," Genesis read LOVELESS at a young age and it became his favorite work, and he has spent his entire life since trying to decipher its meaning. In the later portions of Crisis Core Genesis seems to take the words of LOVELESS literally - believing to have discovered its meaning, he considers himself, Zack, Sephiroth, and his friend Angeal, to be characters in the poem, and believes that by fulfilling its words he can obtain the "Gift of the Goddess" spoken of in the poem, which will cure his degradation.

Genesis favours men over women and has a deep crush on Sephiroth. That's not saying that he wouldn't date a woman, he just prefers men. He's a friendly kind of guy once you get to know him.
