Red XIII is the nickname that this red cat goes by. His real name is Nanaki and he hails from the town of Cosmo Canyon where his father Seto previously defended the canyon. The team encounters Red XIII in the Shinra Building during the mission to rescue Aeris. One of his eyes is permanently closed due to a scar he received; it is not stated how he received the scar.
The red cat is with your party throughout the entire game which makes him a half-decent choice for your main party if you want to add him.
Red XIII is a fairly reliable character when he joins your party. His Limit Breaks are not as strong as some of the other party member choices, but his stats are fairly high with regards to physical attacks and magical attacks. He has the highest amount of Speed/Dexterity and better than average Strength, Magic and Spirit.
Red XIII can use the following weapons (Headdress):
Mythril Clip (Initial Weapon)
Hairpin (Long-Range Weapon)
Spring Gun Clip
