|Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII- character|
The Player Tsviet is the playable character in the Multiplayer Mode of Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-. The character's name is never given, and the gender is chosen by the player. S/he was kidnapped into the service of Deepground and then had his/her memory erased. Now s/he is being placed under intense training to become a member of the Tsviets. The Player Tsviet is haunted by visions of his/her sister and her violent death.
Even though s/he is the central character of the Multiplayer Mode, they never once get a chance to speak. Typically most of the action takes place during the Player Tsviet's first-person perspective, but they are seen several times during the story.
Years before the start of the main storyline of Dirge of Cerberus, Deepground is ruled by the cruel Restrictors rather than the Tsviets. Under the leadership of Weiss the Immaculate, the Tsviets begin to plot a revolt against the Restrictor. However, their powers are restricted by computer chips placed in their brains. For that reason, Shelke the Transparent uses her SND to break into the mind of the Player. Fake memories are implanted into his/her mind, making the Tsviet think that s/he had a younger sister who was killed by the Restrictor. Shelke also creates a holographic SOLDIER guide named Usher who leads the Player on his/her way to overthrowing the Restrictor.
At the start of the Multiplayer Mode, the Player Tsviet is placed under the guidance of Officer - East. S/he then descends into the cruel world of Deepground training, which consists of intense violent combat against other candidates and later the Tsviets themselves. After many missions, the Player is finally made a full member of the Tsviets, but is never given a color. The Restrictor then orders the Player to take part in a training exercise with Weiss. Despite being held back by restraints, Weiss is able to defeat the player and then Rosso the Crimson and Azul the Cerulean at once.
While the Tsviets are gathered together, they decide to all attack the Restrictor at once. Yet for all their power, the Restrictor is too strong and defeats them all. However, the Player Tsviet attacks the Restrictor, hoping to avenge his/her "sister". During the attack, the Player is badly wounded, but Weiss gets his chance to finally kill his oppressive master. With the Restrictor gone, the Tsviets are now free to rule Deepground as they wish. But things do not go as well for the Player.
Shelke reveals with glee that all the Player has been doing was an illusion, and there never was a sister. The Player Tsviet's mind begins to break because of the exposure to the SND process. The Tsviets leave the room, with the Player Tsviet lying on the ground, crushed emotionally and physically. His/her fate is unknown, but it is presumed the Player Tsviet was killed.
