Story Edit

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

Cid (DS).

Cid is trapped in Kazus when the evil spirit Djinn places a curse on all of its inhabitants. Rendered incorporeal by the curse, Cid offers use of his airship to four itinerant youths on the promise they help lift the curse. Once Djinn and his curse have been vanquished, Cid helps the four children modify the airship to clear a path through the rock slide that has blocked his way back to his hometown, Canaan. Returning back home, Cid is horrified to discover his wife has taken ill.

Once more, the four youths agree to help him, and administer the needed Elixir to restore her to health. In gratitude for all the youths have done for him, Cid allows them access to his hidden storeroom and any useful equipment they find within. Cid remains in Canaan with Mrs. Cid whilst the party continues their adventure.

Later, Cid will use the Wheel of Time to turn the ship Enterprise into an airship. While doing so, he reveals the four orphans are from Earth, saying ten years prior to the game, he was flying an airship carrying passengers, when a darkness fell over the land, causing his airship to crash on the Floating Continent. He tells them that only he and four children survived. Even further in the story, Cid is one of the characters Doga and Unei summon to help break the Curse of the five wyrms.

Spoilers end here.

Theatrhythm Cid
An airship specialist normally living in Canaan, Cid becomes trapped in Kazus by the rockslide that followed the great earthquake and cursed by a fire demon named Djinn. When he is freed, the old man uses the Wheel of Time to transform the seafaring Enterprise into an airship and aids the party in their travels throughout their adventure.
—Online description

Cid Haze appears as an unlockable character, and is obtained by collecting Yellow Crytal Shards. His appearance is based on his Yoshitaka Amano art.

Cid's only saving grace as a useful party member comes from his use of the Level 3 Libra, which he learns early and is essential in tackling the Chaos Shrine. While other characters can learn Libra, most of them need to be unlocked first and their versions of Libra cost more CP to use. Players will almost have no choice but to have Cid in their party if they need to unlock more characters.

Outside of Libra, Cid has below average stats and abilities that other characters better utilise.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call Edit

TFFCC

A brilliant inventor who can use the Wheel of Time to create an airship. He used to wield his skill for King Argus, but no longer. Cid is always merry and he loves justice - though not as much as he loves his wife.
—CollectaCard

Cid Haze returns as playable character, and is now unlocked by collecting Orange Crystal Shards.

Cid retains the useful Level 3 Libra to tackle Quest Medleys, though his use as a party member is outclassed by Cidolfus Orlandeau, who also possesses the Level 3 Libra and is a much more powerful character. While Orlandeau is locked behind DLC and learns the ability at higher levels, players may opt to use him more than Cid Haze, whose stats and abilities are once more outclassed by better characters.
