Cid was a l'Cie of Cocoon, with the Focus to protect Cocoon. He began as an Air Force Brigadier under the command of the Sanctum in a division called the Sanctum Guardian Corps, which is based on the warship he commands, the Lindblum. It appears that when Oerba Yun Fang took Snow Villiers into captivity, she brought him to Cid, who unlike most of the Sanctum Officers, greets Snow with a hand in friendship.
In the Fifth Ark, the party encounters Cid who reveals that he has become a l'Cie. However, Cid is unable to fulfill his focus and transforms into a Cie'th hybrid. He is then fought by the party in a boss battle, then he was crystallized and disintegrated. However, Galenth Dysley eventually revived him to make the catastrophe in Eden, the capital of Cocoon. Rygdea soon found that Cid became Galenth's puppet, and was behind the incident. After Cid tells him that he was now a slave of the fal'Cie, Rygdea shot his former superior.
