You got it, Lady A!
Biggs Callux (ビッグス・ケレクス, Biggusu Kerekusu?) and Wedge Kincaid (ウェッジ・キカーダ, Wejji Kikāda?) are characters from Final Fantasy XV, who serve as Aranea Highwind's subordinates. Biggs and Wedge are recurring character names in the Final Fantasy series.
Biggs and Wedge have known Aranea since they were all teenagers. When Noctis and his companions travel to Vesperpool in search of Mythril, they come across the duo. When Aranea joins Noctis's group, she leaves Biggs and Wedge in charge of their encampment. During conversations with Noctis's party, Aranea states that, while she doesn't exactly consider the duo to be friends, she trusts them completely.
They are not seen again until much later, when Noctis and his group arrive in Tenebrae, once again alongside Aranea. As Noctis's party needs someone to operate the train taking them to Niflheim's capital of Gralea, Aranea assigns Biggs and Wedge to the task. Along the way, they converse with Noctis's party via the trains intercom, until the train is attacked and disabled by daemons. They tell Noctis not to worry and escape without them. Afterwards, Noctis's group state their hope that the two of them made it out alive.
After darkness overtakes Eos, Biggs and Wedge at some point become stranded in Cleigne. They are rescued and taken to Meldacio Hunter HQ where they help bolster up the security at the Hunter HQ with imperial soldiers. After a ten-year slumber Noctis emerges from the Crystal. He is informed by Talcott that Biggs and Wedge survived the attack on the train and that, alongside Aranea, they have become leaders among those protecting the people from daemons. Each now leads a unit of their own army.
Creation and developmentEdit
She hasn't changed at all, I only had to change the spear because it lacked scenic impact [...] I drew a quick draft of Biggs and Wedge, but my prototypes weren't taken into consideration and ended up being two "mannequins" in a suit. She initially was supposed to always be accompanied by those two. Her original was that of a member of a squadron that had specific attack patterns based on jumps.
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.
- Verse 2 of Chapter 13 that follows Gladiolus and Ignis has some added radio communications. In the English version, one of them seems to refer to Biggs Callux: "Calling all frequencies—hey. Hey! Is anybody out there? …Anybody who hasn’t turned yet? Anybody? This is—no, forget it. What does it matter? Only a matter of time until I turn just like everyone else did. He was right, 'Ain’t long until the empire falls—and when she does, it'll hit like a ton of bricks.' Should’ve taken his advice and got out when I had the chance. Y'hear that, Callux? You were right. Go on—tell me, 'I told you so.' Sorry I won’t be able to pick up my tab."
