Cid Haze is a character in Final Fantasy III. He is an eccentric looking old man with a large beard, and wide brimmed wizard's hat with goggles on it.
Cid is trapped in Kazus when the evil spirit Djinn places a curse on all of its inhabitants. Rendered incorporeal by the curse, Cid offers use of his airship to four itinerant youths on the promise they help lift the curse. Once Djinn and his curse have been vanquished, Cid helps the four children modify the airship to clear a path through the rock slide that has blocked his way back to his hometown, Canaan. Returning back home, Cid is horrified to discover his wife has taken ill.
Once more, the four youths agree to help him, and administer the needed Elixir to restore her to health. In gratitude for all the youths have done for him, Cid allows them access to his hidden storeroom and any useful equipment they find within. Cid remains in Canaan with Mrs. Cid whilst the party continues their adventure.
Later, Cid will use the Wheel of Time to turn the ship Enterprise into an airship. While doing so, he reveals the four orphans are from Earth, saying ten years prior to the game, he was flying an airship carrying passengers, when a darkness fell over the land, causing his airship to crash on the Floating Continent. He tells them that only he and four children survived. Even further in the story, Cid is one of the characters Doga and Unei summon to help break the Curse of the five wyrms.
