Professor Hojo's Backstory and Profile


Director of Shinra Electric Power Company’s Research and Development Division. He develops various biological weapons, without a care for ethics or morals.

In his previous collaborative research work he performed special surgery on soldiers, increasing their physical power and succeeded in giving birth to SOLDIERs.

Professor Hojo's Characteristics

Head of Shinra's Research Division

As the absolute ruler of Shinra's Research Division, he's willing to do anything for the sake of scientific progress, including turning innocent people into test subjects for deadly experiments. In every aspect, he's the archetypal mad scientist.

Unlike other villains like Sephiroth, who have troubled pasts and arguably excuses for their behavior, Hojo is simply pure evil, and is one of the most hated characters by fans of the game as a result.

A character who plays an important role in the story

As the pioneer of the Jenova Project, using cells from the ancient being Jenova and Mako Energy to grant incredible powers to humans, Professor Hojo was an integral character in the original game's story. As his actions led to the creation of Sephiroth, Professor Hojo can be said to kickstart the events of the game.

In Episode 1 of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which only covers the Midgar part of the original story, it's likely that the truth of Hojo's experiments won't be revealed just yet, but as his character has already been shown to make an appearance, we're excited to see what role he will play in the early part of the story.
