Hojo
Shinra Corporation Scientist
Sephy Is God Homepage

Professor Hojo is a research scientist employed by Shin-Ra electric power company (the Shinra Company). He is essentially a mad scientist with a god complex, but is also the father of our hero Sephiroth. Prior to Sephiroth's birth, Professor Hojo used the body of Vincent Valentine in his experiments.

Hojo's actual importance starts off approximately thirty years prior to the start of the Cloud's adventures, in Nibelheim, where he was sent by Shinra to assist Professor Gast and Lucrecia with the Jenova Project.
