The Clavat is one of the four tribal groups from the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles series. They are usually the games' main characters.
Clavats are the closest of the tribes to resemble humans. Since most of them are farmers, they are seen wearing farmer type clothing. Their hair colors range from blond, brown, red, and black. They can interbreed with both Lilties and Selkies.
Many of Tipa's residents belong to this tribe of unity and friendship. They are gentle by nature and dislike conflict. When disputes arise, they do whatever they can to resolve them. It is said that an air of tranquility follows them wherever they go.Instruction manual
Clavats are peaceful farmers or ranchers, though due to the necessity of crystal caravans there are several who do fight. In battle, Clavats use a sword and shield, often using slash-based movements as a result of, or possibly resulting in, an inclination towards single edged blades similar to scimitars. Clavats have the most balanced skills out of the four races and play like a "newbie" character.
Clavats are jack-of-all-trades good in any situation. With their high Defense, they can take damage, and because they do not excel in a particular area, they can be either magic or melee users.
The Clavats appear in almost all cities (Leuda appears to be the only exception) and are almost the exclusive race in the Fields of Fum. Being the main inhabitants of Fields of Fum, and given the fact the fields supply most of the world's produce, this would make them an important race, albeit not one with much strength to conquer like the Lilties.
The main characters in Story Mode, Yuri and Chelinka, are Clavats. Other important characters who are Clavats includes Latov and Aleria, the parents of the main characters. Princess Tilika, the daughter of King Kolka, is half Clavat and half Selkie.
Their main weapon are swords. They have high Attack and Defense, have the highest HP of all the Tribes, and are a well balanced, easy to use race. When they begin, they will be able to chain up to three attacks, but as they level up, it will go to five. They are the only race that can use a "Downward Thrust" attack. This attack is also used to push down Iron Switches. Their Tribe Ability is the homing Charge Attack. They enter a stance charging energy in to their weapons to lunge at a targeted enemy. Using the touch screen, players can lunge at whoever they tap on the screen (specially useful in boss fights were the player needs to target specific parts of the monster's body to deal extra damage and to flee from trappable moves).
The main character, King Leo, is a Clavat. Other important characters who are Clavats included Leo's father, King Epitav. Chancellor Chime, Leo's mentor and sister figure, is half Clavat and half Selkie. The majority of people in the Kingdom and Adventures who can be recruited are Clavats, as other races must be purchased as downloadable content.
Clavats are one of the four playable tribes. In addition, another main NPC, Sherlotta, is a Clavat. They are a flexible class and are proficient in both magic and fighting skills. They can equip their standard swords, as well as axes now.
