One good example on how our characters could relate to the world is Cloud Strife's backstory from Final Fantasy VII. When Cloud first introduces himself, he claims to be an elite soldier. But he's not. He did not fight as an equal alongside Sephiroth at Nibelheim. He did not challenge him in a climatic confrontration at the Mako reactor. In reality, he was a regular soldier who did see all of this take place, but only from the sidelines. Our characters are not Sephiroth or even Zack. We're Cloud. A regular guy that gets mixed up into things greater than himself. The unsung hero.
