Biggs and Wedge are non-player characters in Final Fantasy VIII. They are two incompetent Galbadian soldiers who are frequently encountered by Squall and his party. They serve as comic relief throughout the game.

ProfileEdit

AppearanceEdit

Biggs and Wedge use the generic G-soldier models; Biggs wearing the higher ranking red uniform, with Wedge wearing the basic blue uniform. They also wield the weapons associated with their rank. As the Galbadian soldiers' uniforms conceal the wearer's face neither's physical appearance can be ascertained.

PersonalityEdit

Biggs is the bossy overconfident leader of the duo and Wedge the obsequious sidekick who follows Biggs's orders despite their apparent recklessness. The pair ends up in numerous humorous encounters where Wedge is dragged down by his superior's incompetence and demoted alongside him. Biggs cannot stand being bothered during what he sees as his important mission and is quick to blame Wedge when things go wrong, and harbors a grudge against Squall's party, seeing them as the reason for his loss of status within the army. Wedge is timid and wants to please his superiors, especially Biggs, but struggles to make his voice heard or be taken seriously.

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
FF8ScreenshotBiggsWedge1

Biggs and Wedge on the Communication Tower.

Major Biggs and Lieutenant Wedge fix the Communication Tower in Dollet so that Galbadia can broadcast their propaganda campaign. Wedge tells Biggs a monster has been sighted atop the tower, but Biggs ignores him, complaining that it is left to him to fix the tower. Wedge leaves Biggs to take a look around. When Squall, Zell and Selphie arrive at the top of the tower, Biggs finishes the repairs and the tower activates.

When he spots Squall's party he orders Wedge to fight them, but when he realizes Wedge is nowhere to be seen, Biggs fights the party himself. Wedge returns and an angry Biggs docks his wages for the next month. The battle is interrupted when Elvoret knocks Biggs and Wedge away with its Storm Breath. After the party defeat Elvoret and exit the Communication Tower, Biggs programs an X-ATM092 to kill the party, before passing out.

After the Dollet siege, Biggs and Wedge are demoted to Lieutenant and Private respectively for their part in the Dollet affair. When Squall's party are taken into the D-District Prison, Biggs and Wedge are asked to take care of Zell, Selphie and Quistis for attacking a prison guard. As soon as they enter the cell, Biggs and Wedge recognize Zell and Selphie. Thinking the party are unarmed, they engage them, but since Zell has recovered the SeeDs' weapons, Biggs and Wedge are easily defeated. The party leave their cell, but Biggs raises the alarm alerting their escape.

In Lunatic Pandora Biggs contemplates leaving the army. Wedge agrees and they abandon their post.

Spoilers end here.
