Final Fantasy 7 - Cid Highwind

Cid Highwind

Name: Cid Highwind
Job: Pilot
Age: 32
Weapon: Spear
Height: 5'8"
Date of Birth: February 22nd
Birthplace: Unknown
Blood Type: B

Cid Highwind was a former employee for Shin-Ra in the company's Space Program. Cid was the main pilot for the first rocket built by Shin-Ra. On the day of launch, Shera, one of Shin-Ra's employees, was working on the lower level of the rocket as it was preparing to launch. Cid, realizing Shera's life was in danger, aborted the launch to save her life. However, the rocket was now useless, so a town was constructed surrounding the vessel, appropriately named Rocket Town.

“...They didn't even so much as look at space exploration. Money, moola, dinero! My dream was just a financial number for them!" - Cid Highwind

Shin-Ra disassembled the Space Program soon after. Cloud and his companions met Cid when they arrived at Rocket Town, coincidentally followed by Shin-Ra. Cid assumed Shin-Ra wanted to restart the Space Program, but instead wanted Cid's airship to search for Sephiroth. Cid, furious that they did not restart the Space Program, decided to join Cloud in his quest against Shin-Ra and to save the Planet from Sephiroth.

“Sit your ass down in that chair and drink your goddamn TEA!” - Cid

Cid is a good-hearted “Captain” who risked his long-awaited dream to save his assistant, Shera. His knowledge of science had brought him to Rocket Town in hopes of achieving the title of “first man in space,” and his faith in his work extends as somewhat of a religion he holds dear to him. Obscuring his once-in-a-lifetime goal, Shera is usually seen as the woman in which he ventilates his anger on, but in actuality, he deeply cares for her well-being; he eventually comes to a realization that Shera most-likely saved his own life as well - not to mention, he develops a sincere respect for her knowledge. He never allows himself to believe that Lady Luck had ever failed him in his dream of becoming a great pilot.

Official Biography (From the official guide book): Cid is a tough talking, warm-hearted old pilot who hasn't forgotten his dreams. There's no better pilot who ever flew either on air or by sea. He believes someday he'll fly to the ends of the universe. With his hand-made spear and knowledge of machinery, he throws himself into any attack regardless of the danger.
