Cid Highwind is a playable character in Final Fantasy VII. He is one of many Final Fantasy characters named Cid, and owns an airship, the Highwind.


Cid is a former mechanical scientist who has a dream of sending a rocket to space. Cid mistrusts the Shinra Electric Power Company, and when one of its executives attempt to steal his plane, he joins Cloud and his allies to fight Shinra. Cid is the most uncouth of the protagonists: he swears, is short-tempered, and smokes cigarettes. However, he has a good heart, and is voted as a temporary party leader when Cloud and Tifa's gone.

Cid wields spears in battle, and his Limit abilities make use of him jumping and landing on enemies with his spear to hit multiple enemies, or hit enemies multiple times, potentially dealing devastating damage.
