Why is there a Cid in every Final Fantasy game?

Hello, Final Fantasy Fans!

When you've already played a number of Final Fantasy games, you'll notice that there is always a "Cid" in the game. They are mostly engineers or someone who invents something to aid the main character and his/her party. Even the latest Final Fantasy XV has two "Cids" instead of one. One is the main Cid and the other is Cidney or Cindy.

Why do you think they all have Cid in their names? Are they like the Chocobos and Moogles of the Final Fantasy universe?

Cids are staple of Final Fantasy games. A Cid even appeared on Spirits Within!

The question though is are all the Cids the same person but in different dimensions. Or is he a multidimensional travelling immortal entity who traveled different realms.

Wow, I didn't notice a Cid in that movie. Maybe because I didn't use subtitles when I watched it before.

Maybe Cids are made to be like guardian angels to support the main characters. :D

If you think about it, Sheva appeared in almost every single game. Sometimes as a Boss, Sometimes as a Summon and 15 humanized her more than ever.

Yup. These summons are also recurring characters. They seem to appear on all of the games but in different forms. I hope we see a Cid as an enemy boss too! :D
