(Red XIII was one of the main characters from the game. It was his grandchild I think in the movie. Wikipedia has some info)
Reno yawned and stretched as he sat up. Then he paused.
“I was on the floor?”
He blinked as memories of a strange town, a redhead with a transparent hand, and a slightly changed Rude ran through his mind. Then he flipped open his phone and dialed a familiar number.
“Do you remember anything strange?”
“You too huh?”
“Among other things.”
Reno nodded. “Yeah. But not just what happened.”
“Do you think we have them here?” Reno asked as he started to walk out of his living room.
“There are some Shinra records that are still accessible.”
“Let’s start there.” Reno said. “If vampires and demons are here…”
“We can’t let them exist.”
“Red XIII might view us kindly. We can ask him too. He has lived for a while after all.”
Reno walked out of his house and started walking to Rude’s house. “We’ll check with The Boss once we have some information.”
”Yeah. Contact him and his friends too. More the merrier.” Reno said. “See you when I get there.”
Xander blinked as he finally woke up fully.
His father stared at him wide-eyed with Xander’s former Halloween prop pressed firmly against his throat, and him in turn against the wall across the room from the bed.
Xander stared as memories of another life flashed through his mind. Then he cocked his head to one side with a slight grin. “You know, you really shouldn’t wake people up like that. But, I think we can forget it ever happened. As long as there’s peace in the house. Right?”
His father slowly nodded.
“At least until I have the money to move out some day. Then you can do whatever you want.”
“Can I go now?”
“Sure dad. I have to head over to Willow’s after I take a shower. Then we’ll go to school. Try to be sober enough to remember this conversation when I get home, will you?” Xander asked as he put his weapon to his shoulder and turned toward his dresser.
His father backed slowly out of the room and closed the door behind him.
Xander put the baton down and pressed his hands firmly against the dresser. “What the hell?” He asked as he stared wide-eyed at the wall.
Across town Larry blinked as he continued to stare at the costume. He’d woken up numerous times in the night after he got home. His memories of teaming up with Xander of all people, and of another life kept him up.
He shook his head. Might as well go to the school library. Everyone who apparently knew about the weird stuff he’d gotten shoved into the middle of was not only there last night, but they hung out there. Maybe he’d get some answers.
Then he paused. Maybe they needed an explosives expert.
