An airship engineer from Dirnado, who grew from a kid toying with machines in her parents' workshop to the finest engineer in the Industrial City. Lid is determined to inherit the name Cid, an honor granted only to the greatest in her trade. Her only serious flaw seems to be her love of money.
—Official site description

Lid is one of the main characters of Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. An airship engineer from Industrial City Dilmagia, the capital of Dirnado, she aspires to be the next to inherit the Cid title, reserved only for the best of engineers.



Lid has amber eyes and red hair that's pulled back into a ponytail with goggles on top. She wears yellow overalls over a red top underneath and red cut-off pants with tools hanging from them. She also wears orange work gloves, armlets and red boots with yellow socks. She carries around a bag with yellow bag with a chocobo doll and a Phoenix Down hanging from it.


Lid had a learned aptitude for machinery from a young age, which she inherited from her brother who taught her the ropes. Her aptitude was such that she created a mechanized chocobo named Mechabo alongside her brother. After her brother left she became more attached to Mechabo. Determined to fix up her brother's abandoned shop and using the first Cid as an inspiration, she became the best airship engineer in Dilmagia.

Her love for gil may be perhaps her only flaw, although her greed is superficial at best as it belies a more noble agenda of using that money to build airships that can connect people all over the world, making travel and interactions much easier and in theory rend wars pointless, rather than simply hoard it for herself. As such she is deeply determined and motivated in pursuing her goals, no matter how difficult or long they may take, she keeps working hard to ensure her dream is a reality.

She deeply loves her brother Evan, having worked with him with the same goal and idolizes him both as an engineer and as a fraternal figure, and does her best to attempt to bring him back to his senses after noticing his stark change of personality.


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

Rain, Lasswell, and Fina arrive at Industrial City Dilmagia looking for an airship to acquire to easen their travels. They meet a young girl who introduces herself as Lid and denies them access to the vessels. After hearing the group talking about going to the Wind Shrine, she asks them to take her with them as the crystals she need to complete her airship are located there. Lid introduces her mechanical chocobo, Mechabo, to the group, who earns a remark from Lasswell that it is a toy. Mechabo is irritated by the comment and chases the man around the city. On their way they come to Dwarves' Forge where they are informed by a dwarf that the place has recently been infested with monsters and after defeating the Liquid Flame a dwarf tells them that his friends were taken away by a man in armor to work on something in the village of Ambel for which the party departs.

Artwork and Renders


  • Lid's attack animation for season two was changed to a dropkick. This is likely inspired on the fact she recurrently dropkicks Jake when he irritates her.
    • In fact, if CG Lid and CG Jake are in the same team, the player can see how Lid runs off the screen (CG Lid's victory animation) and how Jake starts with his flirting and receives Lid's dropkick (CG Jake's victory animation).
