What will Cid be?Follow

I was just thinking. I wonder what Cid's role will be in this FF. I'm hoping that he'll be like a ancient spirit who helps the player characters or a villain high up in the Garlean Empire.

Any thoughts? Speculation?

There's just too much machinery and technology in the game for Cid to be anything other than a pleasantly overweight, aging mechanic.

13 is chocked full of technology and their Cid is a stylish Taiwanese pop star/guy in an airship

It's been said XIV will be closest to 6 though, so I hope this Cid is rotund with a mustache and yellow parka

and god willing, we get to feed him fish

Cid going be the first person to make a char and call him/her Cid.

But for a npc, mostly be some kinda leader of a town/nation.

I assume they won't let you use the name Cid. They didn't let you use major names like that in FFXI did they?

Maybe he'll be a fellow for unlocking the Machinist advanced job, giving you access to Garlean Empire Chainsaw, Drill, Sound Blaster and other tools fitting for a prince of Figaro

Man, that's a very good point. They should be characters in Abyssea or something. There's been way too little of Biggs and Wedge lately. I'd even take their red-headed step bother Piette.

Cid, though? Cid has often been involved in machinery and, more specifically, airships. This time, he won't just be involved in them- he's going to BE the airship. Think Jay-Jay the Jetplane, only Cid-Cid the Sentinel. He finally gets his dream to fly... in style. ;)

Probably something to do with airships again. I just hope he's a good guy, I was ****** when I found out Cid was a baddie in FFXII.

The B&W Shop in Final Fantasy XIII references Biggs and Wedge. But you won't see them in character obviously but they are referenced at least, usually find them in every game somewhere along with Cid.

Cid will be a struggling heroine addict at some city's university. You can quest to find his one true love, that will pull him out of addiction, but in the end you find out that his love has Hep3 and everyone dies.

A wandering merchant that has a recurring role in the story by supplying information to the adventurer that their nation doesn't know. More or less just some random dude that appears and disappears at will.

He will be a professional hot dog eater, as he had a ginormous mouth in FFXI.

I'm pretty sure Cid will have something to do with "airships." He may also be researching into Aetheryte.

Cid will be an Eidolon consisting of every Cid from every Final Fantasy. The Eidolon can be obtained by trading 10,000 Adamantium ore to an NPC. Once you have enough TP, the eidolon can go into Gestalt mode and becomes a giant mechanical chocobo that shoots cactuar from it's mouth.

Seriously playing FFXIII, all I can think of is Transformers... summons in disguise... >.>

I'm going to make the prediction that they'll throw us a curveball in this one: for FFXIV, Cid will be female.

Truthfully I think he'll be somehow connected to the Garlean Empire, but jokingly he'll be a 6th race where you must all look like one of the previous Cids and you are numbered (ex. Cid1, Cid2, Cid3, etc.). This race is so special that it is the only one that can include numbers.

Cid will be an enemy airship who's job class is bada$$ and who's ultimate attack is called kia, which instantly turns your title to Killed in Action.

Can only be defeated if you run in circles counterclockwise at exactly 24 meters away with a 12% movement buff. 100% resistant to all elements, and has 255 eva, spr, and vit. Takes massive damage to level 1 lollafells who trip.

Cid's mention in FF1 was an afterthought (in the remakes) - he didn't actually appear in the original.

Honestly I was surprised that Cid wasn't Maat in FFXI. It seemed to me like a long-running and established character like Cid would have made more sense as your *final* test giver than taking an Egyptian goddess and turning her into a bent, dancing old man.

This was my thought also, but I'm guessing that they wanted to keep with the idea that Cid always has something to do with airships.
My guess is that this will continue.
He'll be a prince whos father will not allow him to fulfill his dream of piloting an airship.

Based on Final Fantasy XIII, I think Cid will finally be the good guy again. In Final fantasy XII and Final Fantasy XIII Cid was the bad guy, so this game will definitely open it up and he will be a good guy.

An Engineer as before.
