Clotho Buer(クロト・ブエル) is a fictional character in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED.
Clotho is one of the three "Living CPU" assigned to operate one of the Earth Alliance's new Gundam mobile suits, GAT-X370 Raider. As with his comrades, his personal data has been erased from the military's records.
The talkative, quarrelsome Clotho is constantly arguing with his teammates, and he likes to shout out video game-inspired battle cries as he fights in his Raider Gundam. Between missions he spends his time perfecting his shooting skills on a portable game system. When in combat, Clotho seems rather psychotic, but mostly very proud. He is extremely upset when the Calamity jumps on his Raider in order to get back to their ship and shows extreme anger at the near misses the Calamity's weapons seem to throw his way. In his final moments, he seems to be suffering from withdrawal in his last attack on the Duel and Buster, showing a complete lack of restraint or self preservation.
Skills & Abilities
Clotho's skills at first seem average, with a reckless combat style, but gradually over the course of the war they gradually improve. He starts out utilizing the Raider's Mobile Armor mode heavily, firing on either Kira or Athrun when they have an advantage over his comrades.
The Battle of Orb
The Battle of Mendel Colony
The Battle of Jachin Due
After the death of two Extended, Shani Andras and Orga Sabnak, Clotho's mental stability begins to deteriorate and feels the pain/loss, while Raider's power was almost depleted. During the final battle of Jachin Due, he attacked Yzak in his Duel and injuring Dearka in his damaged Buster, Yzak was trying to counterattack with his beam rifle, but Clotho destroyed Duel's beam rifle. He kept on attacking Yzak. And Yzak using Buster's rifle, while he was trying to destroy Duel with his last shot, by charging his "Zorn" 100mm energy cannon. And they're finally shoot each other, Clotho's shot failed to hit the Duel and Yzak's own fire destroyed the Raider, killing Clotho in the process.
- Just like other "Boosted Man", Clotho's last name derived from a demon of Ars Goetia, President Buer.
- In the Japanese version, when Orga, Shani, and Clotho are recieving their second dosage of Gamma Glipheptin. Clotho expresses to the doctors "I am very grateful" for the dosage.
- Clotho apparently seems to annoy Shani, this can be seen when their battling in orb, Clotho is about to make another phrase to a video game but is stopped when Shani tells him to "Shut up...".
- While Clotho was killed by Yzak Joule in Original SEED (and HD Remaster), he's killed by Dearka Elsman right after Orga's death in Gundam SEED Special Edition .
