I played this game as a child who doesn't speak English yet and after replaying the game as an adult who speaks English. I just realized Squall is a mean person. No wonder Seifer slashed him. When Quistis was venting out her problems after she got demoted from teacher to seed, Squall insulted her. He is also consistently rude to Zell. He is nicer though compared to Lightning who punches her teammates.

Squall is a jerk from the start but Rinoa will eventually soften him up. So he have a great redemption arc. He eventually becomes likable.
