Cid Highwind

Cid is a very cold and irritable person on the outside, ever since his dreams of space travel were shattered. He would rather hide away and fix his rocket than converse with anyone, especially his assistant Shera. He is a very determined person, and does not rest until a job is done.

Cid is a hilarious character because he’s always cursing. Cid is a both a brilliant pilot and mechanic and his dream was always to travel into outer space and was given the chance of fulfilling his dream when Shinra set up a launch base in his Hometown. Cid’s dreams were ruined as the space program was cancelled as Shera had doubts that the oxygen tanks had problems and remained beneath the Shuttle.
