Atlus Introduces Chlotz from Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars

Posted by Samantha Sofka

Even God's gift still needs a best friend

In a recent press release, Atlus has revealed several new screens for Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars as well as an in-depth description of Chlotz, the main character's best friend and younger brother of Chloe (the redheaded super genius heroine).

Take a look at Atlus' complete description of Chlotz:

It's the first day of school, and despite being told that you're a possible savior of mankind, it's still nice to have a buddy in your corner who's always got your back. In Conception II, the blunt but well-meaning Chlotz takes on that role. He admittedly is a bit of a doofus and a perpetual third wheel to God's Gift when it comes to interacting with heroines, but he's also a technical wizard and is constantly training to be a better Disciple. Like Ruby, the lead researcher, often notes: "For being an idiot, he's pretty smart."

Chlotz also deals with constantly being compared to his sister, Chloe. Not only is she one of the strongest of the heroines that God's Gift can bring into battle, she's also the smartest. Chlotz's sister has numerous published works and is so smart she's actually been promoted to teacher at the Aterra Academy. But despite living in the shadows of her accomplishments, he has plenty of his own talents and their bond as brother and sister can never be broken.

A steadfast companion from the very beginning, Chlotz is always willing to sacrifice anything to help his friends, or slap some common sense into people. Even if he's horribly outmatched with no chance of winning, he's always there to step in if it means he can help save a life. The same can be said for when he's outmatched by some of the S-Rank girls. Even if he can't win over the affections of one on his own, he's always ready to hand out relationship insight to God's Gift. Most of it is usually good, too!

So in a nutshell, the stranger you meet on the way to your first day of school rapidly becomes your best friend, and despite his general doofusness, lack of tact, and clownism, he winds up being one of the strongest supporting characters in all of Conception II. ...Sound familiar?

Conception II is set to release in North America on 15th April ($39.99 for both PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS), and is being published as a digital only title sometime during Q2 in Europe.

Okay, what? Is creativity dead? He's literally a klutz! And his name is just pronounced like the german version of 'klutz' (which is Klotz). ATLUS, don't make me rethink my decision to get this... I really do want this game, but not if most of the game is just the same kind of stereotypes like... Chlotz.

LOL you poor Europeans! Maybe if people bought more than GTA and CoD there, Atlus would have a Europe Division!

@Kaze_Memaryu So a fairly obscure pun of one character's name is going to keep you from buying this game? It's probably intentional for his name to be like that. You should lighten up if that's how you feel it looks like a fun game :)

Also the word stereotype is incorrectly used there, the choice of his name being close to the german word for clumsy and his character actually being a klutz would be called "ironic".

This sounds like an action rpg. & the character they are talking about, reminds me of Atton Rand from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 The Sith Lords.

@MuchoMochi It's the combination of both that is annoying. I've seen many absolutely identical characters like him before, and at some point developers should come up with better things than that. When you've seen the 'easygoing buddy' stereotype often enough, it's becoming more and more implausible for such precisely identical characters to exist, and they eventually annoy you. It's just like the usual 'Idiot Hero' - they're everywhere, and they just exist for convenience. But it's not even THAT hard to add a personality trait for a bit of diversity.

Digital only sucks, but I'm still getting it to show my support for Atlus even bringing it to Europe in the first place.
