Awww . . . this one's so cute <3 He looks kind of curious about her in this one, instead of indifferent :)

I just read Seph's family and history and I must say that Lucrecia certainly applies to the saying "love is blind" or "guilt drives a person into doing things they'd rather not do." Seriously, that husband/lover of hers has no redeeming features whatsoever and is not even aesthetically pleasing in the eye. No no no. Sephy certainly is lucky to have his mama's looks. I agree with his "sentiments" about his "father" being someone full of complexes and apparent hatred against the man. I would hate the man too.

I know this thread is old but as a original player of the game, I have always clung to the idea that Vincent was indeed Sephiroth's father. All of both of your points are valid and have been since 1997 when I was 15 playing the game the first time through. Know though if they did indeed make it obvious that Vincent was indeed Sephiroth's father, certain dynamics of the game would change and unfortunately so would the main story, AC, and Dirge of Cerberus as well.
kyoandyuya Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2016
Nah. It would only increase the drama. To be honest, if Vincent had been the father, it would not change the story that much. What it does however is to strengthen his repentance by not being able to save Lucrecia and his son.

Well said
kyoandyuya Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2016
Except that now, I'm a firm believer that Vinnie is his father instead. I can even back it up. Haha!
Blackcat413 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2016  Hobbyist
Really? I wanna hear. I want that to be true. Because I have a headcanon:

Vince IS Seph's dad, and he was born with red eyes like him. Hojo took him away from Lulu and, disgusted by his eyes, hated baby Seph began to do Mako experiments on him. Of course as the experiments continued he got the greenish blueish color of mako in his eyes, and Hojo valued him as one of his greatest experiments.

I know it has canon holes, but I love it all the same.
kyoandyuya Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2016
Basically this but I have to add a few things.…

Lucrecia was possibly pregnant when she left Vincent - perhaps a month old, just old enough that no one knows about it and would confuse even Lucrecia herself if she was unaware of said pregnancy before she was artificially inseminated or impregnated the old-fashioned way.

Vincent's near copy visage on Sephiroth can be also credited as a strong genetic make up on the former's part. What I mean is, there are some people who heavily resemble one of their parents, even to the extent of near carbon copy (My father shared that with my grandfather and my brother in turn heavily resembled my father. We even call him (my brother) a photocopy of our father who is a photocopy of our grandfather) so this idea is plausible. Sephiroth may instead take more after his secret daddy than the canon Lucrecia. Perhaps even the developers hinted that route. I rather believe it was the case.

Many liked to argue that this likeness is more on the fact that the developers tend to create their characters in the same image. I disagree with that and this is my take on why that is:

If merely due to image duplication can we credit the near copy between Sephiroth and Vincent, why choose Vincent of all people to share this likeness? Randomness? Coincidence? Perhaps. But we must remember that the director himself likes to leave things to our interpretation and the implied paternity between the two can certainly hype up and increase more drama, explain some plot hole over Vincent's reaction over Hojo's claim on Sephiroth AND makes Vincent's guilt trip less sour to our taste if he was repenting his failure to protect his lover and child. It certainly destroyed Lucrecia's image that she had been portrayed as badly as she had and thus most of Vincent's fans thinks she's not worth the effort. But a child is a different matter altogether. Perhaps Vincent was thinking that Sephiroth was his. It certainly explains why he was surprised when Hojo claimed paternity instead. Take note that the claiming of paternity over Hojo's part took place in-game which means that when Vincent went to sulk in his coffin for thirty years over a lost love, he must have thought that he also failed his child. It certainly makes more sense rather than the common conception that Vincent doesn't know the concept of the birds and the bees no matter how hilarious that thought is.
Blackcat413 Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2016  Hobbyist
That, pretty much. It definitely makes more sense to assume that Vincent is Sephiroth's father instead of Hojo, for pretty much all of those reasons. One of the main ones in my mind are their voices and their appearances. Coincidence? I think not. It's hard to believe that Hojo, with his high pitched five-nights-at-freddy's-animatronic voice and face only a mother could love, ever could produce a child like Sephiroth, even if genetics were kind. So yeah, you already said everything there needs to be said.
kyoandyuya Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2016
Wait. I realized something else too and its all thanks to my mother pointing out real-life situations of ugly-guy-hot-wife thing though even these cases are not as bad as Hojo and Lucrecia since the men are average in appearance, not downright ugly.

These cases are marriages between beautiful actresses here in Philippines and non-actor men who are merely wealthy or actors that are not that gorgeous but still passable enough compared to Hojo. Wanna know what I found out? Prepare to be shocked. XD

Some of the children from those marriages more often than not end up with a lesser beauty compared to the mothers. Yes, there are some that end up as beautiful but there would always be a member of that family not as "gifted" in terms of appearance. It proves that it depends on the dominant genetic traits to obtain the same level of beauty as the previous generation and we can see that Lucrecia and Jenova contributed very little traits to Seph because he heavily resembles Vincent and it's obvious that Seph is more gorgeous than both his "mothers" in a masculine way of course. How much more if the guy is bat ugly as Hojo. Do you think Seph would even approach the level of beauty currently revered by fans if that's the case? What do you think?
Blackcat413 Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2016  Hobbyist
The genetics thing makes a ton of sense actually. Putting Seph and Vince right next to each other certainly bears a strong resemblance, but some would blame that on just the way the characters are drawn. But putting Hojo and Seph together really points out the differences, which is something quite odd considering that Seph IS supposed to be the man's son. Even if Hojo was made ugly on purpose, it would be lazy to just make Seph hot without any real explanation. If the developers put time and care into it they would have noticed this, and they must have. Therefore the only real logical explanation is that Vince is Seph's dad like we thought. Boom. XD

Beautiful and inspiring pic. :aww:

Yeah, I honestly wish that the FF7 movie was about Sephiroth being "cured" by finding out the truth, rather than about Cloud being cured from something he didn't even have in the game... or at least have them both be cured of their Jenova cells, perhaps at the same time.:hmm:

Me too......

This picture is wonderful.  It was one of the inspirations for the fanfic I'm writing where Sephiroth does look for and meet his true mother :)  Thank you for being a muse!
zimtak111 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2014
Your fanfic sounds interesting. I remember when I beat FF7 for the second time, I thought it was strange that there was no alternate ending. Because the second time I beat it I had a more thorough playthrough. So I, and therefore Cloud and the team, learned the truth about who Sepheroth's mother was and why he turned out the way he did. Yet surprisingly, they never give you the option to try and talk to Sephiroth at the end about the truth, which almost seems cold hearted for the "heroes" to not do.
ash1rose Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
He has one of the most tragic stories I've ever seen.  But for the want of his true mother's name, things could've been so different.  He was lied to his entire life, and then his mind was taken over my an eldritch abomination that he thought was his mother.  I don't understand how people still see him as the true "villain" of that story when there are so many factors involved.  I'm over 120k words into this fanfic and hoping to be finished before summer's end, then to the edting :)

Lucrecia looks like she's about to start crying and Sephiroth just looks like he's in utter awe.

I love how apathetic Sephiroth looks. I'd say he'd just push her away the next moment.

I love it, I may not have played the game that Lucrecia was in but I've watched cut scenes on youtube. It is a really sad story I think; I would have loved if they met in real life. I can still imagine Sepiroth walking into the cavern she's in and everything is just thrown out in the open about their relations to one another.

Simply a beautiful picture, the emotions are plain and evident. To me it seems that Lucrecia has some regrets and Sepiroth is just...stunned in his own kind of way.

Again wonderfully done and just wonderful picture. I want to find more like these! Keep u the amazing draws!

Erix19 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Unlike most people (which means everyone and their mother), I feel nothing but sympathy for Lucrecia and all she had to go through. She's one of only a few characters who's the most human in how she deals with terrible times. I think the reason people hate her is because she's human weakness personified. People hate knowing they're weak. I like her because she's weak. Sorry, folks, but not everyone is strong like what you look for in a character. Losing her mentor, feeling responsible for his death, rejecting Vincent, seeing what Sephiroth would can anyone be strong enough to overcome that much? She and Cloud have every right be weak and sad. If you were in their shoes, what would you have differently.

Anyway, gorgeous piece with Sephiroth and Lucrecia. It's easy to see where he gets his good looks. Certainly didn't get them from the epitome of all that is ugly and evil.
