Cid Makes His Return In Final Fantasy XV...As Cidney
Final Fantasy has always had a character named Cid.
Well, almost always, and he's typically in the main franchise installments. He ranges from a minor to a relatively major character (he was an awesome playable character in FFVII, for instance) and yes, he - or rather she - is back in Final Fantasy XV.
For the first time, the character of Cid will be portrayed by a female, as evidenced by this new Jump Festa 2015 trailer. Her name is actually Cidney and although she isn't integral to the game's story, she will likely assist you in fixing and upgrading the car you see so often in gameplay videos. She's a mechanic, which makes sense, as Cid was always technically and mechanically gifted.
The trailer shows off a few other cool elements as well. But here's the thing: Cid shouldn't be a girl. Iconic characters, no matter how minor, should remain iconic. For the same reason no Tomb Raider should ever sport a dude named Larry, no FF should have a mechanic named Cidney. Just leave these characters alone.
