Heidegger's Backstory and Profile


The director of Public Security, this former commanding officer has been President Shinra's right-hand man since the early days of the company. The president trusts him implicitly, which has made Public Security the most powerful division within Shinra. Like the president, Heidegger is ruthless, and will not hesitate to sacrifice others to get what he wants.

Heidegger's Characteristics

Shinra's Chief of Public Security

As the head of the Public Security division of Shinra, he acts as the commanding officer of Shinra's standing army. He follows orders from his boss faithfully, but he draws a line at going beyond what is requested of him.

An unreliable character in the original game

In the original FF7, Heidegger has the Turks elite force under his command, but the more-capable Tseng actually pulls the strings. And when things don't work out his way due to his own ineptitude, he gets frustrated and takes it out on his subordinates.

In the official description of the character, it sounds as if he will be more capable than in his previous appearance, but we're waiting to see what kind of character he will be in the final game.

A character-defining laugh

In the original game, Heidegger was known for his idiosyncratic laugh of “Gya haa haa haa!”, to the disdain of Rufus Shinra. It's yet to be seen if he maintains his unique laugh in the Remake.

      Thank you for giving me hope! I didn't know it was coming out on xbox! But maybe at that point you might as well wait for a PS5 version and play with a PS5?

      I believe some European countries as well. Yes, bro. They are damn lucky.
