...is the main protagonist in the Squaresoft (already classic) video game Final Fantasy VII.

here's a small quantity of ripped off data:
Occupation:   Mercenary (ex-member of SOLDIER)
Age:          21
Weapon:       (extremely large) Sword
Height:       5'7"
Birthdate:    19 August
Birthplace:   Nibelheim
Blood type:   AB
He's the strongest character in the game; of course, there is a period where the other party members have to fend for themselves without him.

Cloud's story sets the themes for the whole game. He suffers through the internal strife of uncertainty in his identity, ability and yes, even his romantic life:

To make a very l o n g story short:

Through the whole story, Cloud has strange flashes, and lapses in memory that he can't account for. As the plot develops, we become unsure of Cloud's origin: some evidence leads us to believe that he was just another small town boy who went off to join Shin Ra's elite force of troops known as SOLDIER; other events lead us to believe he's actually a genetically engineered experiment!...
Heavy shit.

The game results in the group of heroes & heroines defeating Sephiroth (the main antagonist), in his plan to destroy the earth. (Which was actually a plan to return everyone the primal, consciousness-only existence -- much like Human Instrumentality in Neon Genesis Evangelion, or the Soulstream in Gargoyle's Quest. It's questionable whether this is an "evil" aim.)

Though there seems to be a clear-cut happy ending, with the badass stopped, and the world continuing on, but we are never really given any answers. The only person who may have been able to help Cloud dies halfway through the game.

He is left to wander his life, without knowing what he really is, or what events have really happened.

...sounds familiar.

Oh, yeah. He a looks a bit like this:
