Tifa, one of the original Avalanche members, is also Cloud's childhood sweetheart. They grew up together in Nibelheim, and have both seen their share of chaos. Tifa is one of the strongest believers of avananche, and she believes in them so strongly that she will fight to the death to help them. Tifa's weapon is her fists. She carries an assortment of metal-knuckled gloves with which she uses to the harm of her enemies. Tifa now resides in the sector 7 slums in Midgar, where she owns a bar called "Tifa's heaven."
