View Full Version : FF8: Family ties. (SPOILERS)

02-03-2003, 12:47 AM
Confused about the whole family situations in FF8? Who's who's parents and all? Well, here ya go... all laid out and easy to understand. Cuz I was bored.

Okay... Raine Leonhart adopts Ellone... Raine marries Laguna Loire... they screw and bear Squall... Raine dies, and Laguna sends the children to Edea's orphanage, where Squall keeps his mother's last name, and Ellone keeps her father's. So, Ellone isn't Squall's sister by blood, they're step-siblings
Now... Rinoa's side is a bit more simple... General Caraway marries Julia Heartilly. They screw and bear Rinoa. Julia dies in a car accident. Rinoa is raised by Caraway... When she grows up and becomes a rebel to Galbadia, she takes her mother's surname, because her dad's a General, just out of rebellion...

Now, the fact that they get together is all speshul cuz, Squall's father and Rinoa's mother were, well, interested in each other at one time. And then, Julia's hit song, Eyes On Me, is their lil love theme song. Just... nifty.

...so, I was really bored. *nod*

Yea, I guess that could pretty much sum it up, but (not family related) how about this: how does Ultimecia end up with Griever(sp?) as her final junction? I've been wondering about this ever since I read a fanfic about it.

Ah. Good question.

What Ultimecia does in the final battle is taps into Squalls mind to find the greatest beast to pit against him possible. In Squalls mind, that beast is Griever.
At least, that's the most reasonable theory ^^;

I always had a soft spot for their unrequited love being passed on to their children.

Now I wanna play it again dam you! >:P

its only implied that Squall is Raine's and Laguna's son. it pissed me off that they
never actually say it.

Laguna: ''Squall...i am your father..''
Squall: ''NOOO..."'

XD !! LOL.

I was so close to beating FF8 and then the unthinkable happned that game along with half my possessions were stolen....*shakes fist* grrrr...those bastards....anyways...I love FF8 and I do plan on re-buying it at some point. but yeah that would be funny L to the 3rd if Laguna just "came out" and told squall that he was his father!

Laguna: "Squall you know I'm your father right?"

Squall: "NO WAY!!! A MORON like you my father?!?!?"

Laguna: "B-but it's the truth!"

Squall: "I am not hearing this!"

<Squall covers his ears and hums to himself>

Laguna: "Squall, please listen"

Squall: Nah uh...bye!

<Squall Flees through Ragnarocks doors>

<Laguna Sighs and mutters to himself>

Laguna: "That boy will never listen to me"


I am just bored so bear with me
