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.

"Pretty dull," mumbles to himself as he wanders about. Having found Rygdea’s pack of cigarettes and lighter, then confiscating them without much pause. He lights one up, inhaling and justly choking on it.

"Smokin’s bad for ya, you know." She grinned as she snatched the cigarette from him, took a hit off it, then handed it back to him. "Whatcha’ up to there Cid? Besides slowly killing yourself from smoking."

"Thanks for the heads up." He rolled his eyes some and took the cigarette back. "Nothing really. I’ve found there’s not really anything of use for me to do around here." He shrugged, feeling a bit morose about it. He liked to keep busy, busy kept the crazy away. "Coming back from death is a lot more dull then I thought it would be."

thelatecidraines whispered,

“You're kidding, right? That's bullshit.”

hyperionfire:

"Listen here, Raines, that "princess" Mutton of yours went and shit on my coat. Either pay for the dry cleaning bill or I’m going to flay that goddamn sheep and make lamb chops out of it!"

"You touch Mutton and you’ll be lucky if I only kill you.”

“Something next to normal would be okay.”

"And here’s your chance." Crystalbarrow wasn’t exactly home, but it did feel like old Bodhum.

"Is it really alright though? For us just to pretend like nothing happened. It feels wrong."

bladelance-saboteur whispered,

“Let me know you again.”

"Know me how? We weren’t really so close in the first place. What exactly do you want to know?"
