my tragic past
Claus (クラウス Kurausu) is another boy from Tazmily Village, and the older twin brother of Lucas. Claus looks very similar to Lucas other than his different hair color and different color clothes, though he is energetic and far more courageous than Lucas. He is last seen by the player lying motionless beyond Mt. Oriander, although the residents of Tazmily are never made aware of this. It is not clarified that Claus lives until the end of the eighth chapter, where it is revealed he is being exploited for his ability to use the elusive PK Love by Porky Minch.
The Masked Man is a mysterious masked man who debuts during the final scene of the fifth chapter of Mother 3. He is the only other person besides Lucas capable of removing the seven Needles. He attacks with lightning, a sword, an arm canon and some PSI powers; he also has the ability to destroy PSI Shields and use mechanical wings to fly away. He also has a move that is able to instantly kill off your entire team, pretty much concluding that only him and Lucas remain in the battle. This move is an intense bolt of lightning that Reflects off Lucas. So far, this move is not avoidable for the rest of your team, this may also add to the dramatic element of the story, keeping only Lucas and Claus fighting each other (Considering the fact that Lucas is unable to attack Claus due to the fact that he just can't do it.). He (Claus) works for Porky Minch, the Pig King, as what he refers to as his "cute little monster," and never says a word in the story. Surprisingly, he is the final boss, rather than King P.(Porky Minch) himself. Because of this, Porky has been the penultimate boss in both games he has appeared in.
The Masked Man is in reality, Claus, who was apparently discovered near Drago Plateau by the Pigmask Army. He was brought back to consciousness and turned into a cyborg, likely using the same process they used to create the Chimeras. During this time, King P used him as a loyal servant and gave to him near full command of the Pigmask Army. Still, during this time, Claus's sense of self and memories have been forgotten and pushed deep inside of him.
At the end of the final battle with the Masked Man, after realizing his true identity and revealing himself as Claus, fires an intense bolt of lightning at Lucas, but his attack is reflected back at him by Lucas' Franklin Badge, causing himself mortal damage and, ultimately, killing himself.
After the Dragon awakens. Claus was brought back to life.....
