A member of Class Fifth, Ryid's most notable attribute is his enormous size. He has a strong body as his mother was a Lorican. According to the Crimson Codex, Ryid is 25 years old and 220cm tall.
- “Ryid is resolved to use his body to protect every living soul he comes across. He keeps to himself for the most part, spending his days in tireless training. His mother was a native of Genbu, giving him his unusually large frame. His favorite weapon in combat is the pile bunker.”
- —Character Info
He trains hard every day to use his strength to protect others.
Ryid attends the Peristylium Suzaku in hopes of using his strength to protect others around him. During their first encounter with him, Cinque and Trey immediately comment on his massive size, which he does not mind.
Fulfilling certain sidequests will reveal that because of his half-Genbu ancestry, the Crystal no longer grants him the ability to use magic when he reaches a certain age. As a result, he is required to leave the Peristylium and given a post outside the war effort. When he expresses his desire to continue protecting people as best he can, Trey suggests that instead of fighting, he can help others by training candidates at the Peristylium and passing on his skills. Accepting this new outlook will result in him joining Class Zero as an ally.
Ryid appears in Final Fantasy Trading Card Game.
