Final Fantasy XIII - Introducing Cid Raines and Vanille's Summon Hecatoncheirs

It just wouldn't be Final Fantasy XIII without Cid!
Japan's Shonen Jump magazine has recently revealed Final Fantasy XIII's pretty, pouty-lipped Cid Raines. He is an officer of the Sanctum and wields a weapon similar to Lightning's, though he isn't entirely against the l'Cie and seems to have his own agenda. He also commands a fleet of airships and has an enormous one of his own.

The magazine also revealed Vanille's bizarre new earth summon, Hecatoncheir.

Cid was a bastion of manliness in a world of metrosexuals. Now he's just like the rest ;(

eeerm I think you forgot the Oglop/Frog Cid in FFIX and the nerdy headmaster Cid from FFVIII.

I think he looks badass and his sword is awesome. First time Cid's had a typical Japanese haircut tho lol.

The other guy looks like Aragon from LOTR.

In this scan it looks like Oerba Vanille wants something :P

^^ From that I prefer his in-game model to his CG render.

Cant wait to see how he will play in to the game.

Cid + Airships = Win.

i don't think it will be playable ...

otherwise we would have seen him with the rest of the cast way sooner

Jesus Christ, what have they done to Cid?

It seems like Japan has become downright OBSESSED with girly men.
