Vincent hadn’t really known what to do with himself after Cloud left for Midgar. The first few weeks were especially difficult, as he’d wake up, make a little tea for breakfast, and sit there brooding as he gazed into the fire. Eventually he began hunting monsters for parts and selling them, upgrading his gun and buying better materia. He became a sort of mountain guardian, fending off monsters that ventured too close to Nibelheim. After all, it wasn’t like there was much else to do in the area.

Even so, he was never quite able to convince himself to leave.
