Cid is a character who appears, or is at least mentioned, in all Final Fantasy installments since the first Final Fantasy. Although he is rarely the same age, and never the same individual in each of the main series, he is usually presented as an owner, creator, and/or pilot of airships and provides transportation to the main characters and their party members at various points of the game.
