Clant (クラント, Kuranto) is a minor antagonist in Gensosuikogaiden Volume 2. He is a former Matilda Knight who turned to banditry after the death of Gorudo.

Biography

During the Dunan Unification War, Clant was a Matilda Knight and the vice-commander of the White Knights, the right-hand man of Gorudo himself. He wielded a Rage Rune and was said to be as skilled a fighter as Camus, leader of the Red Knights.

Whereas Camus and Miklotov left the Knights to join the New State Army, Clant remained loyal to Gorudo. Only once Gorudo fell did Clant abandon Rockaxe, escaping to the Grassland with a handful of his men. There, he used his skill with the Rage Rune to portray himself as the Flame Champion and his men as the Fire Bringer, using the Grassland legends to aid in their banditry in the area.

Clant would eventually try and extort the village of Milit using this scheme. He was initially successful in convincing Mayor Clad to agree to his demands but was thwarted this time by Camus and Miklotov, among others and died in combat.
