Biggs and Wedge XIV

Biggs and Wedge in the East Shroud.

Biggs and Wedge are characters from Final Fantasy XIV. They are engineers with the Garlond Ironworks whom the player rescues from mercenaries hired by Garleans after the crash of their prototype airship the Tiny Bronco.



Biggs is a Sea Wolf Roegadyn with blond hair, while Wedge is a Plainsfolk Lalafell with brown hair that fades to a more reddish shade at the "stalk". They wear matching engineer outfits, a mostly dark grey and white affair with blue sleeves bearing what is presumably the Garlond Ironworks crest, complete with goggles.


Wedge is somewhat shy and clumsy, often having to be pushed into conversation by the more outspoken Biggs. Wedge has a great affinity towards machines, often naming them and treating them as pets. Biggs attributes this behavior to an incident some years in the past, when Wedge was denied getting a dog.

Early LifeEdit

Biggs and Wedge were originally from provinces conquered by the Garlean Empire. As young men, they were both conscripted into the Garlean military, where they first met each other and became friends. They eventually decided to desert, making contact with Cid nan Garlond who brought them to Eorzea. "Biggs" and "Wedge" are not their real names, but aliases they began to use after their defection, in order to protect their families who still remain in Garlean territory.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm RebornEdit

Biggs and Wedge are first encountered when their airship, the Tiny Bronco, is attacked by the Empire, forcing the Adventurer to intervene to rescue them. They then become allies of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, relocating to the group's headquarters in the Waking Sands. When the Waking Sands is attacked by the Garlean Empire, they are among those captured.

However, they are later able to escape, prompting the Adventurer to rescue them from the Empire's troops once more. Once reunited with their mentor, Cid nan Garlond, they become instrumental in the plan to rescue the remainder of the Scions' leaders from Castrum Centri, both by assisting in the procurement of a suit of Magitek Armor, as well as participating in the actual infiltration of the fortress.

Upon the successful completion of Operation Archon and the defeat of Ultima Weapon, the duo can be found in the Waking Sands with the other members and allies of the Scions, where, if spoken to, they will reveal their plans for the future. Biggs desires to start his own Ironworks, while Wedge states his determination to win the heart of his crush, Tataru.

Some time later, when they hear of Cid's current investigation of the Crystal Tower, they put their own personal projects on hold in order to join NOAH and assist in the project.

Final Fantasy XIV: HeavenswardEdit

During the events of Heavensward, Biggs and Wedge have been commissioned alongside Cid to work on Ishgard's airship project. Thus, they are often seen with their mentor throughout the Main Scenario assisting the Adventurer when needed. They become instrumental in the defeat of Nidhogg when their pet project, a new type of personal-sized airship known as a Manacutter, is necessary to reach the dragon's lair.

They later accompany Cid, the Adventurer, and Alphinaud Leveilleur when they pursue Archbishop Thordan VII into the Sea of Clouds, and assist Cid in the plan to defeat the primal Bismarck. When the Archbishop reaches Azys Lla, the pair return to Ishgard, where they help Cid remodel the Enterprise to the Enterprise Excelsior. Once the preparations for the final battle are complete, they journey to Azys Lla with the Adventurer and their companions. Upon arriving on the floating island, Wedge discovers and reactivates a still-functioning Allagan Guidance Node, whom he names Gilly, which is able to lead the Adventurer through Azys Lla.

Following the defeat of Archbishop Thordan VII, Wedge petitions the adventurer's help in restoring Gilly, who had shut down. Venturing into The Fractal Continuum, the adventurer is able to retrieve the parts needed. Wedge is then able to transfer Gilly's programming into a smaller node, whom he presents to the adventurer as a minion.

The duo also assist in the investigation of the primal Alexander, cracking the coded transmissions that the Goblin Illuminati use for communication. They later join the Adventurer and Mide in the attack on Midas, one of Alexander's arms, in order to shut down the core that lies inside. When it comes time for the final assault against the Illuminati forces, they accompany the Adventurer into Alexander in order to confront their leader, Quickthinx Allthoughts. After the defeat of the Illuminati, and the sealing of Alexander, they bid farewell to the Adventurer until the next time they meet.

Final Fantasy XIV: StormbloodEdit

Biggs and Wedge are seen assisting Cid in the investigation of Omega, and express shock when Jessie reveals that she has hired Nero to be part of the Ironworks team. They later find and recruit the Adventurer to help them with the investigation. When the team finds a portal to the Interdimensional Rift, they enter it and find themselves being tested by Omega. Biggs and Wedge help the team get through the initial challenge, and then decide to return to Omega's control room at Carteneau Flats. Omega, however, had decided that the best way to motivate the Adventurer to unleash greater power would be through the death of their friends, and sent a monster in order to kill the duo. They manage to survive, but are badly wounded, and taken by Cid and Nero to the Conjurer's Guild in Gridania to be healed.

By the time Omega is ready to continue its tests, the duo have recovered enough to leave their beds. However, Cid insists that they continue to rest until they are fully healed before rejoining the team inside the Rift.

Biggs is voiced by Antony Byrne in English version of Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward.
