Satoshi, Shizuka and Gautham met Sidwell some time after they all left Instatainment. He agreed to support their evotar research, starting with the Old Hideout in Sapphire Ridge. Sidwell later provided them the Vermillion Wasteland as an unofficial testing ground for evotars.
Role in CrossCode
Sidwell is first seen in Lea's dreams of the Vermillion Wasteland unidentifed. He also appears in private conversations with Gautham on a computer monitor. Satoshi reveals Sidwell by name at the end of Chapter 9. He is certain that Sidwell is watching, hence why he turns on background noise when discussing a plan to save Lea and all the evotars.
