Summary: Five years after the events of FF7, Advent Children not happening, Hojo comes back to life in a younger body. He emerges from the Lifestream near Junon Harbor and becomes sentimentally attached to the city. He still bears the markings given to him by Jenova from when he turned into the floating monster on the Sister Ray and passes them off as tattoos. As he starts to get settled in the underbelly of Junon, trying to be inconspicuous, he runs into an unexpected guest who he'd seen before, but didn't realize he'd affected so profoundly.
