Background/History: Cecil Harvey is the main character of Final Fantasy 4, and it is his actions that shape the future of his home world.

Cecil was born and raised in the kingdom of Baron. He joined the armed forces, and quickly rose to the rank of captain of the Red Wings, Baron's airship force. At the kings request, he became a dark knight of Baron, taking up the powerful shadow arms of his post.

After stealing the powerful crystal of water from the peaceful town of Mysidia on the kings request, he questions the king's motives. Enraged by his apparent disloyalty, the king dismisses him from his post and send him and his close friend Kain Highwind on a simple diversionary mission - to deliver a package to the nearby town of Mist.

The package turns out to be a magical trap, which promptly burns down the town, killing most of the inhabitants. Cecil realizes the king's evil motives, and swears to oppose Baron and protect the world from its aggressions. He sets out to protect the other magical elemental crystals from his former nation.

Personality/Motivation: Cecil finds himself hunted down by his former squadron, now lead by the mysterious and powerful Golbez. Golbez seems to have a personal feud with Cecil, yet refuses to finish him off when Cecil is at his mercy. He is engaged to the beautiful Rosa Farrel, a white mage and fellow adventurer who he cares deeply for. Finally, despite his position as a dark knight, he truly believes in his personal honor and is lead by it to turn on his homeland.

Powers/Tactics: Cecil's sole powers come from his magical sword and Armor. He is outfitted with a powerful shadow sword, as well as strong shadow Armor and a similar shield. With these, he is practically invulnerable to most weapons and can dispatch his foes with ease.

Appearance: Cecil is a handsome young man of only twenty. He has a gentle face, framed by shoulder-length platinum-blond hair. His features are usually obscured however by the menacing and angular shadow Armor that are a badge of his nation and his loyalty.
