However, the player can gain earlier access to the Mosphoran Highwaste by riding a chocobo up to them. Gibbs will reveal his hatred of chocobos, and start to back off, claiming he used to work around chocobos when he was younger, and could never get their smell out without the help of expensive cologne. Eventually, he'll run away, and Deweg will follow, opening up access to the Highwaste. This is the only time players can see the two.

Biggs and Wedge XIV

Biggs and Wedge in A Realm Reborn.

Biggs and Wedge are engineers with the Garlond Ironworks, first encountered in A Realm Reborn when the player rescues them from Garlean hired mercenaries after the crash of their prototype airship the Tiny Bronco.

Biggs is a Sea Wolf Roegadyn while Wedge is a Lalafell.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

Biggs shows up as an enemy in the introduction battle at Orbonne Monastery, where he is quickly killed by Ramza and Gaffgarion.

Wedge can be encountered as a random-encounter battle ally, occurring only after the player has explored/gained control of much of the world map (story progress: 75%±3%). Whether or not this is a coincidence, is debated by fans, however; the name generator for random enemies encountered in free-walking gameplay does not contain the name Wedge, therefore, his name placement in the random-name generator for random-encounter allies is seemingly deliberate. Wedge's name does not appear in the name generator for hired soldiers.

The Japanese release features a number of sound novel minigames that can be played by acquiring certain Artefacts. One of these, Nanai's Histories, features appearances from Biggs as a bartender and Wedge as his assistant.

Chrono TriggerEdit

CT Biggs & Wedge

In Chrono Trigger, Biggs and Wedge are the name of two soldiers found in the Tent of Horrors in the Millennial Fair. They are joined by a third soldier named Piette, whose name is likely a reference to Admiral Firmus Piett from Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Biggs and Wedge along with Piette all have the same generic soldier sprite. Like in Final Fantasy VI, Biggs was called Vicks in the SNES and PlayStation versions, but this was corrected in the Nintendo DS version.
