The following article is based on a subject that has not been officially named in any official Square Enix material; the current title is merely a placeholder.

The old lady next door told me that when a lovebird dies, the one left behind... it just gives up on living so it can join its mate. It was just like that.

Tidus

Tidus's mother is the mother of Tidus and the wife of Jecht in Final Fantasy X. She appears briefly in flashbacks and is not named.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Tidus's mother has short dark blonde hair and blue eyes. Her facial features resemble her son's. She wears a cream-colored jacket over a blue striped v-neck shirt, a red belt, cropped jeans and blue ballet shoes with pink trim.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Tidus's mother felt such devotion to her husband that she would lose the will to live without him, and would ignore her son whenever Jecht was around. If Tidus sought for her attention during these times, she would try to hush him. The young Tidus's vicious words of Jecht upset his mother greatly, and she didn't seem to know how to deal with the conflict, simply telling Tidus that he must hope for the time Jecht returns so that he can voice his hatred at him in person.

Story[edit | edit source]

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

Tidus and his mother on the day that Jecht went missing.

Tidus's mother was deeply in love with her husband, so much that both Auron and her son believe she had simply given up living after Jecht disappeared while out on the sea on a training exercise. Tidus's mother was shocked to see her son's hatred toward his missing father, and tried to encourage Tidus to want to see Jecht again so that he could tell his father how much he hated him. She waited out on their houseboat in Zanarkand for him to return. When he did not, she became terribly sick and died a year later.

Tidus's mother on the Farplane.

When Tidus visits the Farplane, an image of her appears, created by the pyreflies from his memories. As Tidus initially states, his mother would not even look at him when Jecht was around, which was one of the main reasons Tidus resented his father so strongly. Tidus realizes on the Farplane that Jecht encouraged his wife to spend time with their son, and never purposefully monopolized her time at Tidus's expense.

Tidus later admits his surprise at seeing her on the Farplane, as nobody ever performed a sending for her. Yuna explains she must have accepted her death while she was still living. Tidus initially takes offense to this, although remembering something that a neighbor once told him makes him realize that Yuna is likely right.

Tidus's mother appears at the Farplane even if she was a dream of the fayth who never traveled to the real world like her husband and son.

Spoilers end here.
