Klarion is a Lord of Chaos.[3] He is one of the leaders of the Light.[4]

Personality

Klarion acts like both a spoiled brat and a cruel, vicious, and spiteful psychopath. As Chaos personified, Klarion naturally takes great pleasure in causing chaos and hurting other people. Appropriately, his mind is likewise somewhat chaotic,[5] prompting him to occasionally utter malapropisms, such as "holy carp"[3] and "see you later, armadillos".[6] Klarion is fully aware of this habit, but believes others understand what he meant.[7] He is utterly impulsive and demands immediate gratification for everything he does. His sense of loyalty towards subordinates seems mercurial, as he wantonly abandons his allies after being defeated. Aside from his cruelty, Klarion also acts like an immature and whiny child, who throws tantrums when he doesn't get what he wants, and screams angry threats that are made less intimidating by the childish way in which he does it.

Klarion only seems to care about his familiar Teekl, of whom he is very defensive (presumably because it is his only anchor in the Earthly plane). However, he is not above insulting Teekl during one of his tantrums.[3][6] Despite their disagreements, it would appear Klarion does have a genuine affection for Teekl, considering her more than just his anchor, as he cries when he sees Child's anchor, Flaw, snap her neck and kill her.[8] He soon took on another familiar, also called Teekl. Klarion treats her in much the same way as her predecessor.[9]

Physical appearance

Klarion takes the appearance of a scraggy nine-year-old[10] boy with long, thin limbs, a thin neck and an angular face. He has black hair in a mop-top style with V-shaped bangs and devil-horns rising over the ears to points slightly above the top of his head. Along with his pointed crown, these devil horns gives him a distinctive three-pointed silhouette. He has arched eyebrows and sideburns that taper to a point. He also has long, sharp, black fingernails.

Klarion can alter his features if angered or malicious, with his skin taking a blueish hue and his eyes shrinking to red glowing dots.

His clothes are formal, and predominantly black but include a white shirt with a tall, stiff collar (HRH collar). On top of this he wears a black skinny tie (low on the collar), black skinny trousers and pointed shoes, as well as a distinctive jacket. The jacket resembles a standard suit jacket around the chest and shoulders, although it has long sleeves with flared, pointed cuffs, and the jacket's skirt is similarly long (mid-thigh length) and shaped so that it comes to a point at the front. The jacket is fastened with two short button straps around the waist.

History

Early life

Klarion is an ageless Lord of Chaos who seeks any number of means to strengthen his powers.[3] He has existed since the dawn of the universe 16 billion years ago, where he emerged alongside the other Lords of Chaos and their counterparts, the Lords of Order. He had a poor relationship with his fellow Chaos Lord Child for a very long time.[11] He took a cat named Teekl as his familiar and anchor to the earthly plane.[3]

Klarion's first encounter with Vandal Savage.

Around 10,000 BCE, Klarion visited the village known as Atlantis, which was populated by a number of Homo sapiens and Homo meta. It was there that he began tormenting its inhabitants. Despite a sizable portion of the village being superpowered meta-humans, they were helpless to oppose the Chaos Lord's wrath, who subsequently massacred most of Atlantis's populace and set fire to the village's buildings. By the time of the return of the village's founder, Vandar Adg, Klarion was sitting atop a mount of Atlantean corpses surrounded by the burning ruins of the village, all the while laughing. Deeply horrified and angered at what the Witch Boy had done, Vandar leapt to attack him, only for Klarion to effortlessly kill Vandar with the snap of his fingers.

To his joyful surprise, Klarion watched as Vandar rose once again. For the next 300 days, Klarion sadistically tortured Vandar, each day killing him in a new and brutal manner only to see him rise up again. Vandar's persistence eventually intrigued Klarion enough to stop and listen to what the human had to say. It was during the conversation that Klarion informed of what he was and the greater conflict between the Lords of Chaos and Order. Realizing he was no match against the Witch Boy, Vandar proposed a bargain with Klarion to cease his attack against his kin and Atlantis. Perplexed at the request, Klarion asked why, only for Vandar to retort that if he gave him 1,000 years, he would show him. Satisfied, Klarion agreed and promptly disappeared.[1]

Klarion sinking Atlantis.

True to his word, Klarion returned to Atlantis exactly 1,000 years later, where at this point the once primitive village had grown into a sprawling, hyper-advance metropolis that served as the capital of a continent spanning kingdom. Vandar Adg, now going by the name Varl'jat, proposed a new bargain with the Chaos Lord, where he allowed him to destroy Atlantis by sinking it into the ocean. Klarion readily accepted the task and unleashed his magic, destroying Atlantis and killing tens of thousands of Atlanteans including Arion, Varl'jat's grandson and ruler of Atlantis. Greatly enjoying the chaos he unleashed, Klarion, and by extension the Lords of Chaos, were not satisfied with the destruction of just one city. As such, Klarion continued to wreak havoc, ultimately destroying the entire Atlantean civilization by causing the continent it sat on to sink into the ocean, much to Varl'jat's shock. Nevertheless, Klarion continued to partner with Varl'jat, hoping to be able to continue to cause chaos and destruction through him.[12]

Klarion summoning a Starro creature to Babylonia.

In 1,800 BCE,[13] Klarion visited Var'jat, then going by Marduk, in his Babylonian kingdom and offered him a solution to deal with his insubordinate generals. Despite Nabu's protests, Marduk accepted Klarion's offer, who proceeded to summon a Starro creature from deep space. However, instead of subduing the Babylonian army to Marduk's will, the creature put them under its own control. The ensuing battle caused the death of Nabu and his subsequent ascension to a Lord of Order as Doctor Fate.[8]

Centuries later, Klarion allied himself with the Light, becoming its seventh member,[4] mostly to cause chaos[14] and because it seemed like fun.[15]

When Aqualad, Robin and Kid Flash broke into Cadmus, Mark Desmond requested an audience with the Board of Directors, and briefed them on the incident, also informing them that the three heroes had been apprehended. L-3 ordered Desmond to clone them and L-1 told him to dispose of the originals. This course of action ultimately failed and the boys broke out and took Superboy with them. L-1 dismissed the severity of the ordeal and remarked that the loss of the clone could be played to the Light's advantage.[16]

When Sportsmaster reported the loss of the batch of Kobra-Venom due to the young heroes' interference in Santa Prisca, L-6 conjectured that maybe they could reverse engineer the only salvaged vial. He then pointed out that this was not the first time the young heroes had thwarted their operations, recalling the breaking and entering of Cadmus and the destruction of Mister Twister, with L-1 now deeming the young heroes to be their new enemies.[17]

Enlisting the talents of the faux magician Abra Kadabra, the pair attempted to locate and steal the Helmet of Fate from Kent Nelson to permanently neutralize Nabu.[18] While they managed to capture Nelson, he refused to divulge any information about where he had stored the Helmet despite Kadabra's torturing him.

August 19, 20:22 EDT

When the Team was sent by Red Tornado to locate Doctor Fate, Klarion and Kadabra gained access to the Tower of Fate by following them in. The pair forced Kent to allow them into the tower as well, but Kent managed to get them all lost inside a maze-like pocket dimension. Kent managed to escape Klarion with the help of Artemis and Kid Flash, which infuriated Klarion immensely.

When Wally and Kent went to retrieve the Helmet of Fate, Klarion and Teekl managed to follow, during which Klarion hit Kent with a magical blast, killing him. Wally then proceeded to put on the Helmet of Fate, allowing for Nabu to take control of his body, transforming them into a new Doctor Fate. Klarion and Fate did battle, but eventually Klarion was forced to retreat when Fate attacked and gravely injured Teekl.

Teekl as it turned out, was not only Klarion's familiar but also his only tie with the physical non-magical plane of reality, causing him to fade. Klarion retrieved Teekl and escaped.[3]

Klarion holds the Ambre Jeune Perdu.

Klarion and Teekl arrived on Roanoke Island to summon Wotan, Wizard, Blackbriar Thorn and Felix Faust with the help of a gem. In a pentagram, they spoke a spell that shifted the adults and children in separate dimensions.[6]

Zatanna and the Team were on to him, but they were outmatched. Klarion easily deflected Zatanna's "baby magic", and transformed his familiar to battle the others. After Zatanna put on the Helmet of Fate, the tide changed, though Klarion noticed Nabu had trouble keeping himself stable in the separated dimensions. Eventually, the Lord of Order prevailed: Fate bound Klarion, but it was of short duration. After the separation spell had been undone, Klarion escaped and took Teekl with him.[6]

Klarion was waiting for Sportsmaster at a warehouse, but wasn't pleased with what the mercenary brought in. He expected T.O. Morrow, not Professor Ivo. After Teekl informed him Morrow was in a coma, and Ivo started to get annoyed, Klarion decided it would do.[22]

After Sportsmaster delivered some of Ivo's equipment, Klarion, Ivo and Brain experimented on the echinoderm. They were interrupted by Artemis, but Klarion used his magic to allow them to escape.[22]

 
The Watchtower
December 31, 23:16 EST

Klarion controlled the Starro-tech-infected Justice League members from a special console on the observation deck. When Red Arrow, Red Tornado, and Black Canary arrived back at the Watchtower Klarion identified them as not being infected and quickly realized that the Team were neutralizing his "toys". Hal Jordan contained the three Leaguers, and they were tagged with Starro-tech again.

While Vandal Savage was boasting, Teekl notified its master that the three heroes were not under their control yet. Black Canary attacked him, but in response, he summoned Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, John Stewart, Hawkwoman and Martian Manhunter to fight them.

Much to his dismay, the Team robbed Klarion of all his "toys". He protested to Savage that they could still win, but Vandal did not want to risk destroying the satellite, or killing any Leaguers, fearing that Klarion would lose control. The Witch Boy objected, but after being told something by his cat, his admitted he would "bring the chaos".[23]

At some point,[24] the Light entrusted Klarion with awakening Tiamat, so as to use it as a weapon, and in turn he would be allowed to keep the Tablet of Destiny entrenched within the creature.[25]

Klarion ultimately overpowered his pursuer and restrained her in the Sacred Well Room of Marduk's Temple. Beta Squad, led by Nightwing, arrived on the scene, but Klarion's magic was too strong for them. He explained that he wanted to use his own magic to revive the alien weapon, but decided to siphon off Tula's instead.

Klarion revives Tiamat.

He threw the reconstructed statue into the pool, which caused a giant water snake to come out. Klarion went on to explain that Tiamat was not his primary objective, but rather the Tablet of Destiny, an artifact of Order, which was bound to Tiamat. Klarion blasted the water snake, knocking the tablet out of it and Teekl ran off with it. Klarion chased after it, leaving the heroes to fight the water-snake form of Tiamat.

In another room, Klarion found Aqualad in possession of the Tablet, and demanded it back. A fight ensued and Klarion inadvertently destroyed the Tablet, while trying to blast Aqualad. Though he was annoyed at the loss, he did not give it a second thought and made his getaway with Teekl.[25]

After the Light's summit with their erstwhile partners the Reach turned out to be a trap laid by Aqualad and the Team, Vandal Savage summoned Klarion from his ring. The witch boy transmogrified a sword that Miss Martian was levitating at Savage's throat into a fire dragon, and made it attack her. Klarion then activated a portal which whisked him, Teekl, and Vandal away from the underground cave.[30]

December 21, 10:13 CST

Klarion goes through with Project Rutabaga.

In a lone building out in the middle of nowhere, Klarion argued with Teekl about the peculiar name of "Project Rutabaga" until he conceded he had chosen it himself. He turned to a chained young meta-human girl and used magic to activate her dormant Meta-Gene. Klarion was disappointed with her manifested meta-abilities, but regardless marked the girl with a branding iron as per protocol. Then he merged the girl's body with a monster composed of other meta-humans. Upon realizing he had run out of meta-teen stock for this project, Klarion threw a tantrum.

Suddenly, the Outsiders broke into the warehouse and Klarion sicced the creature on them. Meanwhile, Zatanna stepped in too, cloaked with an invisibility spell, but Klarion could see through. Static and Beast Boy tried to keep Klarion busy, while Zatanna tried to restore the transfigured teens back to normal. Once he realized their strategy, Klarion merged Wonder Girl with the flesh monster. Zatanna successfully returned the monster back into the meta-human victims that once formed it and summoned the power of Fate to whisk Klarion out of there. Klarion cried foul helplessly.

 
Tower of Fate
December 21, 13:23 EST

Klarion finds himself trapped inside the Tower of Fate.

Klarion talked down to Zatanna, calling her a common stage magician and boasting that he was a Lord of Chaos. After he pondered how he could punish her, he realized he had been transported into the Tower of Fate. Panicked about the possibility of Doctor Fate finding them, Klarion teleported himself and Teekl away from the area.

However, he found themselves in another part of the Tower. Klarion tried transportation again, only to find themselves in yet another part of the Tower. He kept on trying to escape for hours on end to no avail.[7] Sixteen days later he finally managed to escape.[1]

Klarion attended a Light meeting via a conference call, in which Gretchen Goode briefed them on Dick Grayson, Jefferson Pierce and Motherbox being rescued from her house.

Hours later, the Light had another conference, minus Gretchen. Deathstroke explained how the Markovs escaped Helga Jace's control without blowing Tara's cover. Ultra-Humanite posited that by handing Halo over to Darkseid, the galactic balance of power would shift irrevocably, as she was the living key to the Anti-Life Equation. Savage was alarmed by this news and crushed his tablet in his bare hands.[33]

Along with the rest of the Light, minus the ousted Gretchen Goode, Klarion watched Tod Donner's report about the Justice League taking down a meta-human trafficking ring in outer space and rescuing 316 abductees. The Light decided to proceed with the next step of their plan.

While conferencing with the Light to discuss the meta-human operation in Markovia, Klarion sensed the wave of energy sent out by the arrival of Child and teleported away in a panic.

En route to the source of the wave, Klarion stopped over to torture some hummingbirds.

Klarion teleported to the Fine Jewelry store in Manhattan and found Marvin Fargo's magically dissected and displayed corpse beside Zatanna and her students. Klarion was determined to kill them all, and despite them targeting Teekl was able to subdue them, creating clones of himself to strangle them all. However, a ringing sound summoned him away, forcing him to reconstitute himself and teleports to Child's summoning circle in Roanoke Island.[1]

 
Roanoke Island
May 14, 00:03 EDT

Klarion believed Child had been sent to act as back-up, but was shocked when the other Lord of Chaos said she had been sent to destroy and replace him. Though Klarion listed his achievements, Child told him that acting a lapdog to Vandal Savage for millennia was unacceptable. As battle commenced, Klarion found himself easily outmatched. Child explained that she had the power of all the other Chaos Lords.

Klarion was unable to make any progress fighting Child, and even the intervention of Etrigan the Demon on his side did not tip the scales. Klarion thought to take on Child's familiar, Flaw, but the golem proved impervious to his attacks. Child lifted up a huge slab of earth and dropped it on Klarion. Klarion emerged unscathed, complaining that it was unfair to have to fight the empowered Child. Child promised to only use her own power, but Klarion disbelieved her and teleported away.[12]

Klarion went to the Tower of Fate, pleading for help. Child arrived moments later and ordered Flaw to kill Teekl. though Klarion transformed Teekl into her saber-toothed form, Flaw easily snapped her neck. Klarion had only a moment to mourn her before he lost his physical form and floated away.[8]

The bus finally halted in its journey as Klarion found the heroes he was looking for at the time he needed them.[36] Klarion made his presence known and, though he wasn't thrilled about it, agreed with Zatanna that he and Doctor Fate needed to work together.

As they traversed space, Klarion insisted he needed a new feline familiar before they did anything else. He listened in as Zatanna and Mary Bromfield discussed their lack of trust in him. They did not care about his constant interjections that he could hear them.[9]

 
Salem
May 14, 22:50 EDT

The bus arrived at the Old Salem Animal Shelter. After his companions brought out several cats from the shelter, all of which he rejected, Klarion selected a stray kitten who approached the bus. Klarion took on physical form once more and doted on his new familiar, before he and the magical heroes departed.

They went to the ruins of the Tower of Fate and summoned Child. While Klarion and Fate battled her in the open, Zatanna and her students operated secretly from under glamour. Child soon picked up on the deception and easily countered her opponents.

After a time, however, Child swooned and Klarion sensed that she no longer had the power of the other Chaos Lords. Despite this, Child remained formidable, and impaled Klarion through the torso with a large shard of earth. But Klarion was okay so long as Teekl was okay. Thirteen was able to shatter the weakened Flaw, banishing Child from the physical plane. Klarion removed the great shard from his chest, leaving a gaping hole which he rather liked. After a typically childish farewell, he teleported away.[9]

In the Tower of Fate, Zatanna, Nightwing, Tigress, Rocket and Aquaman summoned Klarion to try to get him to save Superboy from the Phantom Zone. Zatanna hoped Klarion would not dare enter the Tower from their portal and that he would honor his debt to her for bringing him back to the material world. Neither of those things held true, and Klarion created clones of himself to fight the team using versions of their own powers and skills. Zatanna invoked the Lords of Chaos to get him to honor his debt, but even then Klarion only spared their lives rather than help them, and teleported away.[39]

Klarion spent mid-September in the Phantom Zone, hunting the Kryptonians there for the Light and placing them in stasis on the Warworld.[40]

 
The Phantom Zone

With all of the Kryptonians captured, Klarion teleported the Warworld out of the Zone.[40]

Powers and abilities

Klarion using his power.

Klarion is a Lord of Chaos, and as such is a powerful magic user. According to Doctor Fate, he is chaos personified and cannot really be contained.[6] Much like Fate, he also faces the problem of needing an anchor in order to exist in the physical world, a role filled by his familiar, Teekl.[3]

Weaknesses

  • Teekl: Klarion's familiar anchors Klarion to the Earthly realm; much like Nabu's with a human host. If Teekl is harmed or killed in any way, Klarion will lose his anchor and will be shunted back to his home dimension.[3]
  • Teekl II: Same as Teekl, Klarion's new familiar anchors Klarion to the Earthly realm; much like Nabu's with a human host. If Teekl 2 is harmed or killed in any way, Klarion will lose his anchor and will be shunted back to his home dimension. Also, since Teekl 2 is still a baby kitten, she can't defend herself like the other Teekl yet. So, she has to stay close by Klarion for her safety and his.

Appearances

Background information

  • Klarion is voiced by Thom Adcox, who also voiced the gargoyle Lexington on the Disney show Gargoyles, which was created by the producer of Young Justice, Greg Weisman. Also, he worked alongside Jeff Bennett and Edward Asner who voiced the gargoyles Brooklyn and Hudson, respectively.
  • This is the second animated incarnation of Klarion. His first animated appearance was in the DC Animated Universe series The New Batman Adventures, in which he was also depicted as a spoiled child who acted out when he didn't get his way. However, in the former he was a normal human boy who had dabbled into witchcraft, as opposed to being a Lord of Chaos like in the current version. Moreover, his pet cat Teekl had the ability to turn itself into a humanoid-like form and often did its master's dirty work. Also, it had no apparent purpose of working as a mystical link between Klarion and the mortal plane.
  • In the show, Klarion is depicted as being far more powerful and villainous than his comic book counterpart.
  • There have been two distinct versions of Klarion in DC Comics:
    • The original Klarion was created by Jack Kirby, in which he is a child from "Witch-World". He is a completely psychotic brat-of-a-child who turned his own parents into mice, and fed them to Teekl. This version of Klarion and Teekl made their final appearances in the Young Justice comic series, particularly the "Sins of the Youth" crossover event, during which he added "Bum-Bum-Buuuum" to his name, for dramatic effect. The version used for the Young Justice animated series, obviously takes its primary inspiration from the Jack Kirby version.
    • In 2005, writer Grant Morrison created a new version of Klarion from "Limbo Town". This version while still rebellious and mischievous, is not a creature of pure evil, but instead is a relatively heroic character and far more sympathetic.
