Shumi Tribe A small tribe living in the northern region. Basically gentle in temperament, they maintain a relaxed lifestyle. Shumis have big, long arms that change as they grow. The results vary depending on their environment.
Sculptor: You don't know? Excluding the ones qualified to become Elders, all Shumis evolve at a certain stage of our lives. We become what is in our hearts. Often, those who fail to become honorable Elders turn into Moombas. The passionate ingenuity in their hearts gives rise to the red hair.
Elder: He told me that he felt sorry for the Moombas because they don't know any words. He said that words are useful and precious.
Laguna: "The only ones still left in town are old people, children, chocobos, dogs, and cats.
Squall: I was always waiting for "Sis" [Ellone] to come back.
Squall: Elle...Ellone. So, Ellone was "Sis". She was a bit older than us, and we all used to call her "Sis". Quistis, Zell, Selphie, Irvine, Seifer, Ellone and myself... Yeah...I'm not sure what the meaning behind all this is, but we were definitely together.
Squall: (I had a dream, too. It wasn't nice though...I dreamt I was a moron.)
Squall: You were a silly Galbadian soldier. I didn't like your attitude at all.
Kiros: Don't tell me we're lost again. / Laguna: Anyway...we're goin' home. Deling City, here we come!
Ward: So, Laguna... Julia should be making her appearance soon. You goin' for it tonight?
Laguna: I was bedridden for over 6 months. It seemed like every bone in my body was in pieces. / Raine: I nursed him back to health.
Laguna: A fierce debate ensued about who should govern this country after Adel was gone. I wasn't paying close attention while they made me up to be this hero of the revolution, and I ended up being president.
Laguna: ...Ellone was raised by Raine who lived next door. And I came to know her. Then there was another massive hunt for a successor in Esthar again. Elle was taken away[...]so I rescued her and sent her off to Winhill. Shortly after that, Raine died. And Ellone was sent straight to an orphanage...
Laguna: My job kept me busy. I was left here thinking about this and that and before I knew it, all this time had passed.
Laguna: Ellone followed me out to space. Little Elle was all grown up... Then she told me everything.
Laguna: Adel will need to pass on her powers before being defeated. Rinoa, will you be willing to accept them?
Doc Odine: There is only one way to defeat Ultimecia. You must kill her in the future. / ... / Ultimecia probably needs to go back further in time to achieve time compression. Only Ellone can take her back further into the past. / ... / You will keep moving through the time compression toward the future. Once you're out of the time compression, That will be Ultimecia's world. It's all up to you after zat.
