Nothing but a puppet...

Part of FFTumblr

Those who betray the gods end up controlled by them

During his failed attempt to overthrow fal'Cie rule, Cid Raines was cursed to become a pawn of Barthandelus. Concealing his l'Cie status as he continues to lead the Cavalry, Raines pursues his Focus of supporting and guiding Lightning and her companions along the path to Cocoon’s destruction.

After defying his Focus and falling in battle against the fugitive l'Cie, Raines turns to crystal. He is later revived by Barthandelus to serve as the new Primarch -- a puppet with the sole purpose of inciting conflict among the people of Cocoon.

His soul remained in the chaos for a time. Pain, regret and despair being the only things known to him. Until he awoke one day not knowing for what purpose or why he'd returned.

C!ic: …Bl you’re a cock egg.

People watching wasn’t a hobby he had planned to pick up, but lately it seemed to provide more amusement then failing to pick up women in bars. So here he was again, sitting on a bench nursing the gin in his flask as people passed him by. Out of uniform and hidden away under his heavy trench coat it was easy to go unnoticed; not that many knew who he was or what he had done.

It was a hell of a lot better that way.

Pursing his lips he let out a heavy sigh and took another deep gulp of Gin. Staring straight ahead he started to watch the more interesting members of the crowd. A few kids arguing over toys, couples making other’s miserable, and-

His voice caught in his throat when he saw him. A ghost. A strangely solid and live looking ghost. Before he could stop himself he was on his feet worming his way towards the familiar face. 


He turned when someone called his name, looking down a little to see the shorter man. A twinge of shock went through him and he stood a little motionless. Anxiety was bubbling up inside of him, but as foggy as his memory was he couldn’t quite place why. He knew he knew him, but he didn’t know from where and he wasn’t sure if the association was negative or not. Instinctively he took a step back, only muttering a small word under his breathe. “…what?”

I’m back. :l

thelatecidraines whispered,

"I want to apologize for the way I acted the other day."



"You don’t need to apologize, silly."


Vanille blinked, letting go. No matter who it was, old habits died hard. “I’ll go get you something then. I’m pretty sure they have extra clothes lying around here.” She replied, unfazed. “I’ll be back in a moment.” 

With that, Vanille took off, quickly looking for the place where they kept garbs. 


He waited for her to return, awkwardly fumbling around the cathedral and trying to avoid the glares of its constituents.”Bad memories,” he mumbled. It reminded him of the sanctum and other not so pleasant recollections.

thelatecidraines whispered,

"It's been a long time."




"Raines??? How are you alive!?"



Whoops. He didn’t mean to come off as insulting. Snow could get pretty abrasive from time to time but it wasn’t always his intention. “Hey now, take it easy. I didn’t mean it like that. I’m just saying that it wouldn’t hurt you to be a little more positive from time to time. Not everything’s doom and gloom ya know?” That might’ve made things worse.

"You’re not very good with your words, are you Villiers?" Being positive, he wasn’t even sure he remembered what that was like. He scoffed, turning his back to him and muttering under his breath. "And just what has being positive ever gotten anyone in this world?"
