Klio is the main protagonist and hero of the Klio series and is a playable character in Toshiko Crash-Up. His in-game rival is T.E.D..



An 18-year-old boy descended from a long line of past lives, Klio can control a force known as the Zone, which surrounds all living things. A Zone Master, Klio is able to utilize both the Light Zone and the Dark Zone, providing him with a large arsenal of impressive psychic abilities. His world is constantly thrust into darkness, and with the use of his Zone Powers and his trusty Zone Wand, Klio is able to ensure danger to anyone who wishes him harm.

  • Klio II: Final Hours



Klio's story opens at the ruins of the Sacred Altar, the gathering place for the Elemental Sprites. Klio stands at the gravesite of his adopted grandfather, Morrtis. Klio tearfully apologizes for not being able to save him. As he lays a Light Zone Lily on Morrtis's grave, he is surprised by a white flash of light. Oracle materializes in the altar and tells Klio that a mysterious dark force has been growing in power. Klio agrees to go stop it and he enters through a portal that spawns in the altar.


Name: T.E.D.

Reason: As Klio trudges through the rival arena, he comes across T.E.D.. T.E.D. thinks Klio is lost and asks if he can help. Klio says he can help by telling him who he is. T.E.D. tells him his name and says he that he is considered a Master of Ceremonies where he comes from. Klio infers that T.E.D. is claiming to be a deity. Klio insists that Oracle is the one true deity and starts the fight.

Connection: There doesn't seem to be much connection. T.E.D. is effectively a Toshiko "god", being the company mascot, and Klio, being a Zone Master, has god-like powers.


After defeating The Great Mighty Spiral, Klio returns back to the Sacred Altar. He kneels down at Morrtis's grave and tells him that he has finally managed to avenge his death. Oracle appears and tells him that the dark force has ended. However, she also says that his adventures are not over.
