Every Final Fantasy must have its Cid, and for Final Fantasy XIII it's Cid Raines.

While the above image was borrowed from the Final Fantasy Wiki, information about Cid Raines comes by way of a scan from a Final Fantasy XIII spread in Shonen Jump. According to Final Fantasy Union, this time around Cid is a brigadier in a military organization other than PSICOM.

I won't speculate about Cid's role in the game. It's just good to know he'll be in there.

I should note, for those tuning in, Cid is the only member of the cast aside from the main 6 heroes who was designed by Tetsuya Nomura. Everyone else in the game was designed by a secondary artist, Nao Ikeda.

So not only does this explain why he looks like the older brother of the hero from Versus XIII, but it pretty much confirms he's going to be either a playable character, the main villain, or both at some point in the game. After all, they wouldn't have Nomura draw all 6 heroes and then one incidental character.
