StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Biggs and Wedge are first encountered when Noctis and his companions travel to Vesperpool in search of Mythril. When Aranea joins Noctis's group, she leaves the two of them in charge of their encampment. During conversations with Noctis's party, Aranea will state 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.

Ten years later, when Noctis emerges from the Crystal, he is informed by Talcott that Biggs and Wedge survived the attack on the train. Alongside Aranea, they have become leaders among those protecting the people from daemons, and each now leads a unit of Hunters.

Spoilers end here.

Creation and developmentEdit

Biggs and Wedge were designed to be Aranea Highwind's subordinates. Aranea was designed by Roberto Ferrari who has commented on her and Biggs and Wedge's design thusly:[1]

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.

EtymologyEdit

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.

TriviaEdit

  • 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."
    • In the Japanese version of Chapter 13 Verse 2, the man referred to in the radio communications is called "Crux". The subtitle spells his name in kana as such: (クレクス, Kurekusu?), different than Biggs Callux in kana: (ケレクス, Kerekusu?).
