Final Fantasy IV Edit

IV

Red Wings Opening DS

The Red Wings soldiers.

Biggs: "We are the Red Wings―the pride of Baron! Must we now be thieves, sent to plunder from the weak??"
Cecil: "Enough."
Wedge: "But, Lord Captain! The Mysidians offered no resistance! And still we cut them down."
—Biggs and Wedge speaking to Cecil.

It is revealed in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years that Biggs and Wedge were the two Red Wings soldiers who questioned Cecil Harvey about the King of Baron's orders to raid of Mysidia to obtain the Water Crystal, as the Mysidians offered no resistance and had done no harm.

TAY Biggs & Wedge

Biggs and Wedge assist Ceodore in the Adamant Isle.

You are the last... of the Red Wings, Ceodore... We, the Red Wings... are the greatest airship fleet in the skies...the pride of Baron! My orders... are the law... to you...
—Biggs's last words to Ceodore

Biggs and Wedge are still members of the Red Wings seventeen years later and lead Ceodore to the Adamant Isle so that he can become a knight.

Captain Biggs is hard on Ceodore and berates him, and even goes so far to smack Ceodore across the face for talking back to him. Wedge, by contrast, is already confident in the prince, and takes good care of him almost to the point of mollycoddling. This is done to encourage Ceodore to become a true member of the Red Wings.

Etymology Edit

Biggs and Wedge are a recurring running gag in the Final Fantasy series. They almost always appear as a duo, and are named after Star Wars characters, Biggs Darklighter and Wedge Antilles, Luke Skywalker's Red Squadron wingmen in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
