Airship captain and leader of the Al Bhed, who finally reunited his tribe after Sin destroyed their original Home. He is the father of Rikku and Brother, and also the maternal uncle of summoner Yuna, as Yuna's mother was his estranged sister when she married Braska. The Guado, under the orders of Yevon, lay siege to Home once they discover that Cid has been diverting summoners there. Cid is forced to destroy it with a barrage of missiles, and his people are once again nomads. Cid is a hotheaded, strong-willed man who is intent on stopping his niece's pilgrimage, with force if necessary. At least on this point, he and Tidus are on the same page. Cid agrees to fly the guardians to Bevelle to stop Yuna's marriage, and later aids them in an airborne battle against Sin.\\\
In the "Last Mission" of ''X-2'', Rikku mentions that her father continues to hatch zany schemes to fund the reconstruction of Home.

An eccentric character who is Rikku's older brother. If he has a real name, it's never mentioned. He deploys an AntiMagic cannon against the Guardians in Macalania, is seen piloting the party's airship in both games, and is surprisingly adept at playing Blitzball.\\\
He plays a larger role in ''X-2'': He and Buddy managed to unearth the ''Celcius'' from the arctic, and Brother became Captain of the the Gullwings. He became fluent in Yuna's language in order to woo her, and his horniness is used as a running gag. His leadership qualities are debatable.

An Al Bhed entrepreneur who owns a successful chain of Travel Agencies, as inns are referred to in this universe. Like most Al Bhed, he never misses an opportunity to pocket more gil, ostensibly to rebuild their Home. He is mentioned as being one of the last people to see Auron alive; that is, before Auron became an unsent.\\\
In ''X-2'', he enlists the Gullwings to figure out who (or what) reprogrammed his line of synchronized machina to attack passersby. This opens up several story opportunities: In one scenario, the anti-machina group led by a hippie named "The Prophet" was responsible. In another scenario, Rikku caused a chain-reaction by landing on a droid butt-first. In yet another, Calli the Chocobo fan pushed over a hovercraft in order to make room for chocobos on the Highroad. Rin is the hardest of the suspects to pin down, and he is impressed by your tenacity if you do: He wanted to conceal the fact that his machina went haywire, so he hired the Gullwings thinking they would bungle the case. This version of Rin is actually sinister and planning to mine energy from the Farplane, similar to Shinra plugging its factories into the Lifestream in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. This is the more-intriguing outcome, but you don't get an Episode Complete for nailing Rin ([[KarmaHoudini plus he escapes justice anyway]]), so it's not advisable if you're seeking OneHundredPercentCompletion.

An old scholar who has an astounding amount of knowledge of Spira and its history. He first appears at Mi'ihen Highroad walking near a statue of Lord Mi'ihen, and follows the guardians throughout the game. His lectures are pretty interesting even if the text boxes suggest that Tidus finds them agonizing to sit through.\\\
In ''X-2'', Maechen shows up again to provide more exposition and plot twists, as well as dropping hints that Tidus could be revived somehow. Through the recording in the Black Mage Dressphere, it's revealed that he met Yuna's doppelganger in Zanarkand long ago. In doing so, he reveals himself as an unsent; Maechan has been gathering knowledge for so long that he simply forgot he was dead. After one last heart-to-heart with Yuna, Maechen apparently sends himself--although Rikku believes he'll return one day with more stories to tell.

Or O'aka The XXIII, Merchant Extraordinaire. He is an IntrepidMerchant with a cockney accent who hounds Yuna's party, trying to interest them in weapons and items. He's actually fairly incompetent at what he does: The guardians have to loan him vast amounts of money just to get his business off the ground, but in return he'll sell you loot at rock-bottom prices. He has a brother named Wantz who reluctantly takes over the family business when O'aka is jailed for selling equipment to the enemies of Yevon (guess who).\\\
In ''X-2'', the Al Bhed repossess his travel agency in Macalania when O'aka dodges their debt collectors. The nearby temple fell into the lake when the Fayth deserted it, and O'aka lost his main attraction--and with it, his customers. The Gullwings can help him stow away about the ''Celsius'', where he panhandles for gil in order to become solvent again. Help him reach his goal, and O'aka returns in triumph...only to find the Al Bhed lying dead on the floor, having been killed by the fiends set loose by Vegnagun. Determined to honor the debt collectors (as he will never be able to repay them), O'aka adamantly remains in the snowy, inhospitable travel agency. O'aka later reconciles with Wantz and takes him on as his clerk. Conversely, the Gullwings can turn O'aka in to his loan sharks, whereupon O'aka is found WorkingOffTheDebt in the Bikanel Desert.

The third member of the surviving Chocobo Knights who is often left in their dust. He is a total failure at everything he puts his hand to--apart from taming chocobos. When asked for his opinion, Tidus can suggest he become a chocobo breeder instead; the player finds out later that he's been hired as the chocobo keeper on the ''S.S. Liki'' (which uses HamsterWheelPower). Elma is pissed at this, but Lucil is more understanding.\\\
Clasko joins his old comrades in the Youth League, but fares little better there. With the help of the Gullwings, he clears out the old Monster Arena from ''X'' and converts it into a makeshift chocobo ranch. The Kinderguardians are later hired to help protect it.

A Yevon nun with no trace of evil at all. She is first encountered on Mushroom Rock Road, where she tries to convince the Crusaders not to fight Sin with forbidden weapons.

Another summoner whom Yuna encounters on her journey, this time in Djose. He has two guardians, his younger brothers Maroda (the middle brother) and Pacce (the youngest brother). All three of them are swept up in the Al Bhed dragnet. He is far friendlier than Dona, but he shows his true colors when the party is found guilty of heresy by Yevon: He sics his Aeons on the party to prevent them from escaping the Vio Purifico. \\\
In ''X-2'', Isaaru is running a cheesy attraction out of the now-vacated ruins of Zanarkand; the Gullwings return to the now-iconic campfire to find gawking tourists all over the place, which greatly offends Yuna. One mission involves getting the monkeys in Zanarkand to breed like rabbits; since monkeys have a habit of looting gil from peoples' pockets, the tourists abandon it in droves, and Isaaru is forced to close down. Isaaru also seems to be having a spat with his brother Maroda, who has joined the Youth League. Depending on the player's choices, Isaaru may return to Bevelle to help rehabilitate Yevon once Zanarkand is inherited by the monkeys.

The spiritual leader of Spira and the Grand Maester of Yevon for the last 50 years. (Wakka is aghast when Tidus remarks, "Shouldn't he be retired now?") He is corrupt to the core, much like his religion: he venerates Yu Yevon, officiates the ShotgunWedding of Maester Seymour and Yuna, and expresses no alarm when he learns that the groom murdered his father. When Yuna insists that Seymour is an unsent, Mika taunts her by revealing his own undead nature; the Yevonites consider him too valuable to give up even in death. Much later in the game, the party pumps him for information regarding Yu Yevon. A coward to the end, Mika panics once he learns that no more Final Aeons can be created, and seemingly sends himself to the Farplane.\\\
Apparently not: In ''X-2'', he is encountered as a boss in the BonusDungeon Vio Infinito. He becomes the Concherer, a vile-looking fiend.

One of the four Maesters of Yevon, he is also the leader of the Ronso. On the surface, Kelk is just as complicit as the other Maesters; but Mika privately shares his mistrust of the venerable Ronso tribe, calling them thick-headed. After Yuna's trial, he shows up again at Mount Gagazet to block her path to Zanarkand. Yuna renounces Yevon on the spot, declaring that she is going to Zanarkand with or without their sanction. Moved by her words, Kelk gives her his blessing and promises not to allow anyone from Yevon to give pursuit. He is killed off-screen when Seymour slaughters the Ronso in order to reach the summit before Tidus.

The human representative of Yevon, in charge of both the Warrior Monks (part of the Yevon order) and the Crusaders (heretics who use machina to fight Sin). He is an old friend of Auron's from the days when they were both Warrior Monks: The former got shafted by Yevon, while the latter got a promotion which was rightfully Auron's. Kinoc and Seymour both arrive at Mushroom Rock and pretend to endorse the Crusaders' activities; in reality they want to see the Crusaders destroyed, as it will be a powerful recruiting tool for Yevon. Kinoc provides the security for Seymour's sham marriage later in the game. Unlike Seymour, however, Kinoc seems to earnestly believe that his deeds benefit Spira. This puts in him conflict with Seymour, who kills him and his security detail in Bevelle.\\\
As revealed in ''X-2'', Kinoc tried assembling a task force called the Crimson Squad in order to undermine the Crusaders, but they were slaughtered during basic training by Shuyin. That didn't work out so well, so he tried to cover up his blunder by having the survivors shot, but they got away. Kinoc later wheedled his way into a joint operation with the Crusaders. His restless spirit is found wandering the Vio Infinito, transforming into the GiantEnemyCrab Aranea.
