Cidolfus Demen Bunansa (also known as Dr. Cid) was an antagonist of Final Fantasy XII. A genius scientist under the employ of the Archadian Empire, he was the mastermind behind manufacted nethicite and the various technology that made the Empire great. However, Cid's inventions were mere experimentations made during the pursuit of a greater power source, and a greater end than mere world conquest - for he believed humans should have control over their own lives rather than dictated by 'Gods'.

In the Dissidian Wars, Dr. Cid was technically on Chaos' side but sought the means to free himself and others of the 'Gods' rule, using his fellow Chaos warriors as test subjects for his attempts. For his rebellion he was removed from the cycle by Chaos, which effectively granted him his desire to be free of Chaos' control


Dr Cid’s basic attire is based off of his original game appearance - wearing silver shoe-leggings with gold designs, a deep red and purple coat, also with gold ornaments, and white elbow-length gloves. In EX Mode, Dr. Cid gains a shadowy aura as if possessed.

His alternative costume 'Occurian's Man', portrays Dr. Cid in duller more ragged clothing reminiscent of after his possession by Venat and his defeat by the protagonists.

The 3rd costume 'Fatherly Man', makes Dr. Cid appear as he does in artwork displaying him with his son Balthier. Dr. Cid's Hair is longer and is wearing a thin white coat over a military uniform.

Dr Cid’s manikin Idle Scientist is Golden
