The protagonist of Final Fantasy X, Tidus was about to play a match of blitzball match in the Jecht Memorial Cup when Sin attacked, resulting in the destruction of Zanarkland. He wakes up in the Baaj Temple in the world of Spira, upon which he is informed by a girl named Rikku that Zanarkland was destroyed a thousand years ago. Confused and out of place, he meets Yuna, a fledgling summoner about to begin her pilgrimage to defeat Sin as many had done before her and believes his story due to meeting Jecht when she was younger. Hoping to find a way home, Tidus joins Yuna on her quest and becomes the keystone of a much greater scheme as the story progresses.
