Final Fantasy Memes That Are Too Hilarious For Words | TheGamer
Who was the girl (Ellone) that Squall and Quistis saw in the Garden .. at the end of disc one, Squall is aware of Rinoa's relationship with Seifer. Squall/Rinoa romance it's not the main focus of the game, unlike The main focus is the relationship between Squall and Laguna, past. I've always had a soft spot for their relationship. . Rinoa is criticised by Squall and Quistis a few times throughout the story for treating Timber's . Also there are some really great NPCs with interesting quotes in the game.
Yeah sure you might wanna keep going after the same guy for a few weeks or so, but anymore than that is just The relationship is completely subtle and vague UNTIL the Ragnarok which is late Disc 3 and totally random, and that's if you can really find them saying nice words or caring about one another.
I think they relied too heavily on it and Rinoa kept pressing him to talk which was the only reason he finally opens up later and has that insane of a personality change.
That topic doesn't really prove anything. Squall has issues with letting people close because of his childhood, this is made very clear within the first disk of the game.
Rinoa clearly points this out at an attempt to get Squall to realize that he DOES care for people, so he should let them in Squall, doesn't actually believe he cares for these people. He thinks that by being nothing but professional to them and avoiding any type of real socialization he won't care about them.
What you seem to be mistaking is that Squall doesn't start caring for Rinoa in space, he actually cares for her and all of his other teammates long before then. BUT, Squall himself didn't know that he cared. Squall realizes he may never hear her voice again, see her smile again, etc He realizes how much he's pushed her away and he wants her back in his life. This is why he carries her all the way to Esthar and then goes after her in space.
When Rinoa finally snaps out of it in space she realizes everything Squall has done for her and she was right in believing in him all along. This is when she wants a hug, and asks for one in a very playful manner.
Squall doesn't exactly react to that the way we'd expect. He still has issues and didn't magically get over them, so he partially tho not entirely reverts to his old ways. At this point in the game he is really torn between the person he will eventually become, and the person he has been for the past 14 ish years. He hasn't "broken any rules" so to speak.
When Squall decides to go break Rinoa out he is, for the first time in the game, putting someone ahead of his duty's. This is an often over looked, but very powerful sign in the transformation of Squalls personality. When Squall does break her out, he immediately embraces her, which only makes sense by this point in his personality development. Squall is a very complex character and his level of depth in character development is admittedly easily overlooked.
However, it IS there, and when you find it you realize just how well written it is. IX's romance is undoubtedly the most realistically done out of the four games, no question. Zidane actually acting like the average teenager only makes it even better. The story happens in literally a few weeks. I don't know, taking a comatose person and leaving without notice whatsoever seems like he'd be fired of that Commander title.
The whole SeeD thing didn't really amount to anything in the story other than giving Squall a background.
The main focus is the relationship between Squall and Laguna, past, present and future. When I've read his first sentence, I thought this Snow guy got it right.
Then I've read his second sentence and found out he gets it even least than most people!!! The main focus of the game, it's the importance of relationships.
Squall's Dead - a theory of what really happens in Final Fantasy VIII
Seifer is a loud and outspoken rebel, while Squall is a silent, strict rule follower. Both are nigh-equally skilled in using the gunblade, but Seifer's temper often leaves him losing to Squall. Seifer's friends, Raijin and Fujincall themselves a "posse", whereas Squall is a loner. Although he is belligerent and rude with delusions of grandeur, Seifer is troubled rather than bad.
He is twisted by the sorceress's power, and pursues a warped version of his dream, although the degree to which he is controlled or influenced by her power is left ambiguous.
He has been bullying other kids since he was young, and is considered a "problem child" by the Garden staff. He defies authority figures and considers that others should defer to taking orders from him. He acts impulsively and his rash decisions get him into trouble until he feels he can no longer back out. Seifer displays some positive traits, as he's the first to clap in congratulation for the new SeeDs despite not making SeeD himself. He also becomes angry upon hearing that only three rookie SeeDs were sent off on an unreasonable mission with a vague time limit, and rushes to help.
Skip section Seifer as a child in Edea's Orphanage. Seifer is an year-old orphan who was born during the Sorceress War and sent to Edea's Orphanage. From a young age he bullied the other orphans, especially Zell.

Of all the Garden students only Seifer and Squall chose a gunblade as their specialized weapon. Squall and Seifer sparring.
16 years later, Squall & Rinoa remains the best romance/love story in a game, right? | NeoGAF
Even though Seifer had great potential to become a SeeD, his behavior made him fail the exams, and he was labeled a "problem child". Seifer's "romantic dream" is to become a sorceress' knight and he has borrowed books from the Balamb Garden library related to the subject. When he was seventeen, Seifer dated Rinoa Heartillya girl working in a resistance group to free the occupied nation of Timber.
By the age of eighteen, Seifer is in instructor Quistis Trepe 's class, but has little respect for his young teacher, and openly defies her. He strikes at Squall's face, giving him a bloody scar. As Seifer lets his guard down, Squall retaliates, leaving a mirrored scar on Seifer's face.
Seifer begrudges having Squall and Zell in his team and declares that the Squad B rule is to follow his command. Unlike the others Seifer does not wear the the cadet uniform for the mission, and during the boat trip to Dollet acts indifferent and bored when Xu explains their objective, dissatisfied his squad was not given a more important task than securing the central square. Seifer and his squad arrive. Upon arriving to Dollet Seifer leads his squad to their post on the central square, and upon clearing it of enemy soldiers becomes frustrated with the following idleness.
They spy the Galbadians heading to the mountains toward a radio tower, and, acting on impulse, decides to abandon their assigned position, with Squall and Zell following behind. Seifer goes on ahead leaving Squall and Zell behind when Selphie Tilmitt catches up with the them, bearing a message to the squad leader. Seifer single-handedly clears the radio tower of soldiers before taking the elevator to the top, where the squad finds Biggs and Wedge activating the tower.
Selphie delivers the withdrawal order to Seifer, announcing they only have 30 minutes until the boats will leave. Seifer is furious they are ordered to withdraw when there are still enemy forces around, but is unwilling to be left behind. He again abandons his team to make his way back to the beach on his own, leaving Squall, Zell and Selphie to fight the X-ATM sent to pursue them.
Everyone makes it back to the beach to withdraw in time, and upon arriving in Balamb Harbor Seifer complains about his squad members' incompetence to Fujin and Raijin who had arrived to greet him. The exam results are announced, but because of Seifer's disobedience during the engagement he fails and grudgingly applauds Squall, Zell and Selphie, all of whom pass. Seifer takes the President Vinzer Deling hostage. While Seifer is sent to be disciplined for his actions Squall, Zell and Selphie are assigned their first SeeD mission: Rinoa, whom Seifer had introduced to SeeD to hire them, is a member of said faction.
Having heard of this mission, Seifer breaks out of the discipline room injuring many in the process, and embarks to assist the Forest Owls by holding the President of Galbadia hostage during a broadcast from the Timber TV Station. Backed into a corner and watched on by Squall, Zell, Selphie and Quistis—Seifer's former teacher who had been sent to retrieve him—Seifer is saved by Sorceress Edea. Appealing to Seifer's darker side, she convinces him to follow her.
Seifer is announced executed by the Galbadian government and Rinoa reveals her past with Seifer to Squall and his party. Seifer is believed dead until he shows up in Deling Citystanding at Edea's side having become her sorceress' knight. Squall, with their new ally, Galbadia Garden sniper Irvine Kinneashad been assigned to assassinate the sorceress during her welcoming parade.
