Why Clause? Clause is a well-rounded tank that can be obtained for free by clearing all Chapter 1 Stages on easy. He has low cost skills with low cooldowns that provide a short range AoE stun, a knockback, and a Physical Defense party buff.
Pros and Cons
+ Low Cost Skills + Short Casting Times + Reliable CC + Powerful Speed Debuff + Physical Amp + Party P.Def Buff
- CC has Limited Range - No Self-Healing (Like Jane/Phillop S3)
- If you take Cut Ground [Light] for his T4 perk, Clause can practically stun-lock the enemy by himself. At max skill book enhancement, it keeps the enemy stunned for 5 secs, and the [Light] perk reduces the cooldown to 7 secs.
- Although Shield Strike has a slight knock-back, it cannot interrupt skills.

Story from the game: This upright and righteous man protects Orvel as one of its knights. Many people consider him a dependable defender of Orvel, but due to his lack of interest in wealth and success, his actual rank within the order has never been very high. He grew up together with Kasel and Frey in the same orphanage, and he loves his land as the home of those precious to him. H recently volunteered to join the expedition to investigate the King's plains.
Story Scenario when Scarlet was released:
“It’s Clause, your highness”
“You may come in”
Clause stepped into the chamber cautiously and kneeled before the princess.
“I came here right away, as you’ve called to me, your highness.”
‘Yes… I am the princess who must look after my people, and protect the nation’
“Clause, I know you just came back from the expedition and I am sorry to summon you without any notice."
I had no choice since there are too many ears around.”
“My pleasure, your highness”
“So, tell me. The truth what you saw..”
After a period of time, they did not say anything for a while. And it was Scarlet who broke the ice first.
“It is different from what I heard.. So different indeed..”
“I am telling the truth, based on what I’ve experienced. Your Highness”
Clause was looking at Scarlet with his innocent and clear eyes. She couldn’t find anything but honesty in his eyes.
When she sees his innocence eyes, her weak mind becomes stronger. “You are the one of the people who I can trust in this castle. I do believe in you.” Said with a bitter smile.
“Haha.. How ironic… Terrible things were happening out there, but I am surrounded by a bunch of people those who only care about themselves covered with lies.. I can’t say anything even if my people resent me.”
Clause shook his head without hesitating.
“That’s not true, your highness. People are looking up to you, and they trust you. No one blames you about this, your highness.”
“… So, you mean they are blaming my father, the King Veroglans II?”
“Forgive me, your highness… I didn’t mean to..”
Clause bowed his head when she asked the question.
It seemed Scarlet was hesitating to say something, but she swallowed it. ‘Orvelia… And Father… How did this happen…’ She closed her eyes… And only sound she could hear was wind blowing over her.
I’ve been taught like that since I was a little girl. True knights never ignore injustice, and never kneel before unfairness. I must be honest to myself first so that I can bear pride as a true knight.
When she opened her eyes, there was no hesitation anymore.
“Demia. Are you out there?”
And a woman answered back with a low tone from outside of the chamber.
“Yes, your highness. I Demia, Orvelia Knight is waiting for your orders.”
“Clause, Demia, as soon as I step out from this chamber, gear up for the journey.”
Clause answered with a shivering voice.
“…Your Highness, allow me to say.. Going out by yourself..?”
Scarlet answered back without hesitation.
“Yes, I will meet them in person.”
