Commander of the Sanctum's elite Wide-area Response Brigade, also known as the Cavalry. A prominent member of the Sanctum, Cid comes to doubt his government's blind allegiance to the fal'Cie, and the fear of Pulse they foment. He enlists the aid of Fang and other Pulse l'Cie to plot the overthrow of the Sanctum.
Cid Raines appears as a boss and a playable character in Final Fantasy Record Keeper. He could be initially recruited during the Challenge Event Defying Destiny as the First Time Reward for completing the event's High Stakes stage on the Classic difficulty.
As a mage-fighter General Raines is not an impressive character. He boasts some of the worst overall defensive stats and has average HP and Attack. However, his strong Magic will give the Final Fantasy XIII squad one more viable blaster to deploy against aerial enemies. As his team's scion of darkness, one can only hope that the skillset grows to include more magic-oriented abilities in order that General Raines can unlock his full potential.
