Cid Del Norte Marquez is a non-player character from Final Fantasy VI. He is the chief genetic engineer of the Gestahlian Empire who invented the Magitek process. Born in the fifth year of the nation of Vector, Cid is a member of the Marquez bloodline of patriotic scientists of the northern state of which became Vector in the war of fifty years before the game's beginning. His Japanese surname is alternately spelled as Del Norte Marguez or Marguz.
Cid wears a yellow coat with red decorations, though his artwork shows that underneath it he wears a black and white outfit that appears medieval, with black shoes with red decorations on them.
Though Cid is devoted to his research, he is not strongly loyal to the Empire. Cid has selfless motives, and though he is unwilling to fight, he attempts to solve problems through diplomacy, and believes that the espers should not be killed solely to further his research. Cid is also close to Celes, and acts as a father figure for her.
