Kain Highwind is one of the main playable characters of Final Fantasy IV, and Cecil Harvey's toughest rival and best friend. Kain has strong feelings for Rosa as well, and he does his best not to show them. He finds himself in the service of Golbez after Cecil is relieved of his command of Baron's Red Wings.
Kain was born in Baron, and was raised with Cecil by the King of Baron. The king wanted Kain to become a Dark Knight like Cecil was, but Kain wanted to follow in his father's footsteps of being a Dragoon and defending the castle. As the adventure opens, Kain tries to defend Cecil after Cecil was discharged from the command of the Red Wings.
