Final Fantasy VII - Cid Highwind

Cid Highwind is a former mechanical scientist with an unfulfilled dream of sending a rocket into space.

With the use of his handmade spear and knowledge of machines, he throws himself into any attack regardless of the danger. There’s no better pilot by the air or sea.
