Birthplace: Cosmo Canyon
Blood Type: Unknown
Red XIII, whose real name is Nanaki, grew up under the care of his "grandfather," Bugenhaugen. When you find him, he is one of Shin-Ra's experimental subjects, and they think of him as nothing more than another animal. In reality, he is the last survivor of his species, and incredibly intelligent. His race in long-lived, and although Red is listed at 48, he in the equivalent of a 16-year old in human terms. His parents were the protectors of Cosmo Canyon, and it is Nanaki's destiny to take over this task.
Red XIII is a fairly powerful character. His Cosmo Memory limit break can do massive damage, and it looks neat too ... thermonuclear strike, anyone? Also Limited Moon, his best weapon, does a lot of damage if you pump Red's MP up with MP Plus Materia. You can do quite a bit of damage with him early in the game, since he can be at a relatively high level at the outset, depending on cloud's level when you find him. You get Red XIII while you are trying to break Aeris out of the Shin-Ra building.
