When Tir was called to serve the Empire, Cleo went with him along with Pahn, Gremio, and Ted. The job they were assigned led Tir to question the empire, and when Ted fell afoul of Court Magician Windy, Cleo, Tir, and Gremio were forced to flee Gregminster with the help of Viktor. Cleo remained with Tir until the end of the Toran Liberation War. After the war, Cleo retired from military duty and lives at the McDohl mansion.
Role in the GameEdit
She joins Tir automatically in Gregminster.
Cleo is a required member of the main battle party during the early part of the game. Her long range weapon, medium armor, and rune spell abilities make her a good back row character. She will also protect Tir in combat if Tir is at critical HP.
Cleo wields an Air Sword, which is a type of dart.
|Name||Air Sword||Air Moon Sword||Air Moonstar Sword|
Cleo has a good magic rune growth, making her ideal for magic runes. As Leknaat gives her a Fire Rune to protect Tir, it is a viable choice for the early portions of the game. However, as many options become more available, it's advisable to make good use of her high MP with the other elements or eventually update her Fire Rune to Rage Rune. She makes an excellent and fast healer with the Flowing Rune in the later stages of the story, when monsters and bosses frequently use special attacks that target the entire team.
