[Daily article] June 22: Tidus

Tidus is a role-playing video game character, introduced as the
protagonist of Final Fantasy X in 2001. He is a 17-year-old star
blitzball player who joins a pilgrimage to destroy a creature that
attacked Zanarkand, his hometown. He has appeared in other video games,
including the Final Fantasy X sequel Final Fantasy X-2, the Kingdom
Hearts series, and several Square Enix crossover games. The cheerful
Tidus was designed by Tetsuya Nomura. Scenario writer Kazushige Nojima
gave him frequent monologues describing the game’s setting. Tidus is
voiced in English by James Arnold Taylor and in Japanese primarily by
Masakazu Morita, who also performed the motion capture. Video game
critics judged Tidus an appealing protagonist, with excellent character
development. Although reviewers and fans were divided on Taylor’s voice
work, Tidus enjoyed popularity with fans, often ranking as one of the
best Final Fantasy characters in polls. He is a popular cosplay
character.

Wikiquote quote of the day:

  I find I am shedding hypocrisy in human relationships. What a rest
that will be! The most exhausting thing in life, I have discovered, is
being insincere. That is why so much of social life is exhausting; one
is wearing a mask. I have shed my mask.  
–Anne Morrow Lindbergh
