Clovis is revealed to be the one who saved Natani's soul after the siblings botched an assassination on the deadly sorcerer Issac. Since then, he has tried many times over six months to get the siblings to repay him by doing several actions.
He appears first as the main antagonist of The Dragon Masquerade, a Twokinds prequel involving Zen, Natani, Saria, Roselyn, and Lady Nora. Later, it is heavily implied to the point of certainty that he makes an appearance in the final page of Chapter 18 ("Epilogue"), where it is revealed that Clovis (or another Wolf-Fox keidran with the same lower facial features as Clovis) has made a deal with the Templar to fool the tiger keidran into thinking that the Templar are their willing allies and that wolves are their main enemies in the brewing war.
He informs the duo, by mental link, of their roles and job of securing the flawless mana crystal in the Dragon Façade mask during Dragon Masquerade. Before leaving Zen, he "motivates" him by saying he would expose Natani's true sex to the guild, should they fail. Clovis would watch Zen and Natani as they continued on the heist.
He would later discover that Natani has broken the agreement with him, and decided to save his brother in exchange for the mask. Furious, Clovis uses his magic to try and control Natani's body. Despite this, Natani is able to give the mask to Saria to complete his contract with Nora. Clovis berates Natani and tells him he will tell the guild of his sex, and make him suffer. Lady Nora, listening in by joining the mental link, decides to punish Clovis for his actions by turning him into a woman. Nora muses on Clovis's new appearance, with Clovis retorting that she won't get away with this, right before being kicked out of the mental link by her.
After his transformation and disconnection from the mental link, Clovis has stopped bothering the siblings and has retreated outside of most public life, fearing if his secret be revealed.
Clovis is seen conversing with Brahn about the attack on Edinmire they pulled, also getting angry that Brahn didn't tell him about the dragon and Grand Templar would be there. Clovis then gets his flawless crystal amulet as payment, not caring about the wolves he betrayed for it.
Clovis is a vain man, who enjoys holding control over other people. He holds an irrational hatred to women, due to his half fox heritage from his mother and the wolven view of foxes as lower class citizens. He is also shown to not care about people and views them as expendable, as he didn't hesitate or care that Zen was captured by Lady Nora.
- It is unknown if Nora's magic on him is just temporary like Mike's encounter, or perfect transformation like Euchre.
