Can't remember the name of the game, PS1, RPG (jrpg?), multiple starting characters and stories.
The start of the game had a screen with about ~7-ish characters to pick from and you highlited the one you wanted, each character had his/her own storyline and started in different locations. As you went through the game you revisited some of the same locations with different characters, but the levels had different objectives.
I remember one of the chars having silly blue hair and his sttarting sequence involved a car crash (possibly a car crash?) followed by a boss battle.
It had a standard ff7-like turn based fighting system with a max party size of (I think) 4.
I have some more info if this isn't specific enough, but all of it is even more un-specific and hazy.
Thanks for reading
