Cid Kramer is the Headmaster of Balamb Garden, a minor protagonist in the Clouded Horizons series.
- "Once you've come to a decision, follow through with it and give it your all so you have no regrets."
- ―Cid Kramer, to Squall Leonhart
Cid Kramer's life story is one that is deeply entrenched in that of SeeD, and the Garden Network. From being married to a Sorceress, to, for all intents and purposes, fathering/mentoring a savior of the world, he is a keyholder of fate.
The younger times of his life were very quiet until he joined the armed forces protecting the Balamb island, which was in the height of the war between Esthar and Galbadia. His skill with the Revolver gunblade was recognized, one of the few on the island who had mastered it. While off duty, he explored a certain set of ruins that at the time, he was unaware would become a most important part of his life, and the world's future.
He met Edea during one of his travels through the ruins. After marrying her, he quickly took on her dreams of owning a orphanage, the same orphanage that would house Squall Leonhart, Seifer Almasy, and others who would be crucial to the Ultimecia conflict. And only a few years later, he took on her idea for a "Garden" of which would be used to defend the world from the constant Sorceress threat.
After Ultimecia's defeat, Cid has taken a quieter role in Garden affairs, choosing to allow Squall Leonhart handle Balamb Garden, while he handles the Network more directly.
- "Please, my friend. I would not shut you out in such times!"
- ―Cid Kramer to Trent Dougherty
Cid is fiercely protective of his wife, Edea Kramer, of those he considers his "children" and of the system he helped establish in the Garden Network. Beyond that, he is a knowledgeable caring individual who is easy to negotiate with. Some consider him the grandfather figure of the Garden Network.
- "I was once a soldier too, just like you."
- ―Cid Kramer, to Squall Leonhart
Cid's skills are heavily based in negotiation and administration. His mind works numbers and figures easily, and he is able to see the potential in people, allowing him to utilize them to their fullest, allowing them to live up to their full potential. While not being a pacifist, he rarely resorts to physical combat unless he is unable to see any other alternative.
Should he need to resort to it, however, he is still well-versed in the hymn of the Revolver-style gunblade.
- Skilled Swordsmanship Specialist: As a user of the Revolver-style gunblade, he is a fearsome opponent to face.
- Average Strength: His strength is similar to many Humes.
- Average Agility: Because of his age, he is much slower than many of his peers in SeeD.
- Average Spiritual Energy: Having little exposure to otherworldly being or arts, his spirtual energy is nothing exceptional.
- Basic Magic User: Unlike his wife, Cid's ability with magic is low.
