In the original game Genesis was a close friend of Angeal and Sephiroth and a fellow SOLDIER First Class. It is after he began to feel the effects of his degredation that Genesis found about the dark secrets of Jenova Project G which created him and defected from the Shinra Electric Power Company, taking many once loyal members of SOLDIER with him and turning them into monsterous copies of himself that he used to wage war. After discovering how to cure his degredation he had one final duel with Zack Fair and was defeated, his body being taken by the mysterious soldiers of Deepground where it rests for unknown purposes.

Genesis has two fanclubs in Midgard, Red Leather who admire his apperance and Study Group who admire his dedication to the research of the popular book of poetry LOVELESS.
