Cliff is a character I created with Griever. Actually they are closely related, since Griever
was the sorcerer who taught Cliff how to use his elemental powers. Indeed, this young man is linked to water, he can summon it, use it as a real weapon (when it rains for example, Cliff becomes a terrible opponent, using the raindrops as needles...). As a hobby he likes to play the ocarina...

The young man finally became the protector of a High Priestess (the same who saved Xynmiz
Concerning his design, his clothes are a mix between an asian inspiration and something more arabic, obviously he had to wear blue and I may say he is maybe my only character with some typical manga features (if you consider his eyes and hairdo
