'''Cid''' {{J|シド|Shido}} is a character that has appeared, or been mentioned, in almost all ''[[Final Fantasy (Series)|Final Fantasy]]''-related media; the main series, spinoffs, film and anime. Cid has become a ''Final Fantasy'' trademark, as with [[chocobo]]s and [[Moogle (Race)|moogles]]. He leads the list of recurring characters, which include [[Biggs and Wedge]] and [[Gilgamesh (Character)|Gilgamesh]]. However, each installment features a different Cid character, and his roles in the series range widely from a party member to a [[Non-Player Character|NPC]] to an [[List of Antagonists|antagonist]].

In ''Final Fantasy'' tradition, Cid characters often have a group of distinct traits fans have come to expect. They are often mechanically minded and frequently portrayed as engineers or inventors. Cids are often the source of the [[Airship (Term)|airships]] the player uses toward the game's end, as its captain or its creator.

The Cid characters are sometimes partially responsible for the main conflict within the game as a result of his inventions or research being abused. If this is the case, he will often seek redemption by assisting the party. Cid is usually older than the main cast, sometimes by several decades, and they are thus portrayed as fatherly figures, sometimes as the biological, adoptive, or surrogate father of one of the main characters.

Cid Pollendina is a playable character and the first playable Cid in the series. The head of [[Baron (Final Fantasy IV)|Baron]]'s corps of engineers, Cid is a friend and mentor of both [[Cecil Harvey|Cecil]] and [[Rosa Joanna Farrell|Rosa]]. He designs the airships used by Baron's elite [[Red Wings]] corps, but develops misgivings about the [[King of Baron]]'s methods. Cecil and [[Kain Highwind|Kain]]'s exile, and the use of the Red Wings to destroy [[Damcyan]], prove more than Cid can tolerate: he rebels against the King, is imprisoned for his treason, and is later freed by Cecil, joining his party.

Cids

There really isn't any deep meaning to it, we just wanted to make a character that would appear in various forms in all the games. I guess I've always had a soft spot for that kind of character. Cid is like Yoda from the Star Wars series—very intelligent and wise.

Hironobu Sakaguchi in EGM2 August 1997.

Cid (シド, Shido?) is a character that has appeared, or been mentioned, in almost all Final Fantasy-related media; the main series, spinoffs, film and anime. Cid has become a Final Fantasy trademark, as with chocobos and moogles. He leads the list of recurring characters, which include Biggs and Wedge and Gilgamesh. However, each installment features a different Cid character, and his roles in the series range widely from a party member to an NPC to an antagonist.

In Final Fantasy tradition, Cid characters often have a group of distinct traits fans have come to expect. They are often mechanically minded and frequently portrayed as engineers or inventors. Cids are often the source of the airships the player uses toward the game's end, as its captain or its creator.

The Cid characters are sometimes partially responsible for the main conflict within the game as a result of his inventions or research being abused. If this is the case, he will often seek redemption by assisting the party. Cid is usually older than the main cast, sometimes by several decades, and they are thus portrayed as fatherly figures, sometimes as the biological, adoptive, or surrogate father of one of the main characters.

AppearancesEdit

Final FantasyEdit

Cid Mentioned at Lufenia (FFI DoS)

Cid mentioned at Lufenia.

Cid does not appear in the original NES version. He is mentioned briefly in remakes, a retcon designed to extend the presence of Cid into every game of the core Final Fantasy series. Cid is described as the ancient Lufenian creator of the airship the Warriors of Light use.

Final Fantasy IIEdit

FF2 Cid

The original Cid. He began his career as one of Fynn's knights, but later acquired an airship and left Fynn's service to seek out his own fortune. Based out of Poft, Cid offers taxi service with his airship to Firion and the party. His airship is taken (with Princess Hilda aboard) by the Palamecian Empire's Dreadnought, but Firion and his friends rescue them, and the Dreadnought is destroyed. Later, Cid dies and gives his airship to Firion.

In the Dawn of Souls and later remakes, Cid shows up in the city of Machanon, a city in the afterlife.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

He is later freed by Cecil, joining his party.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-Edit

Cid is a temporary character who doesn't make it into the final party.

He reappears as a non-playable character in Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-, Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII-, in the CGI-movie Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, and is mentioned off-hand in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-.
