Carl Clover

Carl is a young boy who, like Noel and Jin, was also a student at the Military Academy, but dropped out without warning while Noel and Jin graduated. Currently, he is after Ragna's bounty and the Azure Grimoire, leading him to become a vigilante. He travels with a maid-like puppet called Nirvana, whom he believes to be his sister Ada. He is unwilling to see that she is in fact Deus Ex Nirvana, a Nox Nyctores in the form of a marionette, often blamed for "Insanity" in the user when in fact it only amplifies its owner's preexisting desire to kill, similar to Jin's sword and Noel's pistol. 

After several people attempted to disassemble or remove Nirvana from him, Carl has become extremely paranoid and possessive over his "sister." In the end it is unknown whether Carl is insane or if Nirvana is truly Carl's sister, Ada. Interestingly enough, one of the "Teach me Dr. Litchi" episodes reveals that Carl's glasses are what gives him the ability to talk to Nirvana, as well as mailboxes and telephone booths.

In some ways, Carl strikes me as a "new take" on Harry Potter. Hehe. Carl has an interesting get-up, along with his freaky android sister. His fighting style is effectively cool and very original in the fighting game universe, as he can control his sister at will during a fight.

Although the way he fights is very unique, you could say that his "style" of gameplay was inspired by the likes of the Marvel VS Capcom series, as skilled players can actually make their assist characters appear "behind" their opponents, allowing for a beat down from both directions... always entertaining. ;) Anyhow, Carl is a cool character and balances out the Blazblue roster with style.
