Cid of the Lufaine (ルフェインのシド, Rufein no Shido?) is a minor character in the Dawn of Souls, 20th Anniversary and iOS remakes of the original Final Fantasy. Though he does not appear in the game itself, he is mentioned by several townspeople in Lufenia as the ancient creator of the airship.
Dissidia Final Fantasy and Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy expand his role in the original game considerably. Cid's past ties him easily into the creation of Chaos and Cosmos, and he serves as an overseer to the cycles of war known to the warriors as the Great Will. His backstory and his connection to Chaos and Cosmos is told through Dissidia's Chaos and Cosmos Reports, and Dissidia 012's Report. He also serves as the narrator, voiced by Bunta Sugawara and Rodger Parsons.
He is voiced by Bunta Sugawara in the Japanese version, and by Rodger Parsons in the English version.
