Marlos Hill:

The Lifestream. That's what we call the river of life that circles our planet. Giving life to the world and everything in it. The Shinra Electric Power Company Discovered a way to use the Lifestream as an energy source. Because of Shinra's energy, we were able to live very comfortable lives. But wasn't that because we were taking away from the planet's life? A lot of people thought so. Shinra used their power to stop anyone who got in their way. Shinra had a special group of warriors called SOLDIER, and all of the SOLDIERs had Jenova cells put inside them. Jenova was a calamity that fell from the sky a long, long time ago, and tried to destroy the planet.

Anyway, there was this one SOLDIER named Sephiroth, who was better than the rest. But when he found out about the terrible experiments that made him, he began to hate Shinra. And then, over time, he began to hate everything. Shinra, and the people against them. Sephiroth hated the planet so much that he wanted to make it go away, and the people who tried to stop him. There were a lot of battles, and for every battle there was more sadness. Someone I loved went back to the Lifestream, too. And then it came - the chosen day. In the end, the planet had to make the battle stop for good. The planet used the Lifestream as a weapon, and when it burst out of the earth, all the fighting, all the grief, and all the sadness, everything was washed away.

This is the story - Final Fantasy Seven: Black Materia.

Mega Ran:

You ready?
You ready?

An energy manufacturing mega-company known as Shinra Incorporated is harvesting the sheer life energy of the planet as a simple fossil fuel.
The life stream is processed and made into products ranging from electricity and heat to mako and materia.
The latter two materials can work miracles, granting the wisdom of the ancients to the user.
However, the Lifestream, like most other fuels, is finite in supply.
And the planet's life force is being malevolently drained by the constant exploitation of mako by Shinra.
Though aware of the harmful effects, they function without remorse.

However, the real battle lies, not with a corporation, but a force much more competent from the distant past.
A long-thought dead warrior bent on becoming a god by draining all the Lifestream from the planet has risen again
And will stop at nothing to achieve his goal.
And now a small rebel group emanating from the slums must quell the various dangers toward the innocent
And one mercenary for hire must look amidst the lies and deceptions
And find the man
He is
Within.
