|Role||Dart's mother, Zieg's wife|
Claire Feld is the wife of the former Red-Eye Dragoon Zieg Feld and the mother of his successor, Dart Feld. She died during the attack on Neet by the Black Monster 18 years prior to the start of the game while trying to defend the villagers. Her death and the supposed death of Zieg is what leads Dart on his quest for vengeance that takes him across the world and separates him from Shana.
Clues left by the developers are obviously meant to make players wonder if she is also the lost daughter of Haschel, but no official statement has been issued on the subject. Claire is also one of final bosses of the game, just before the battle, Dart and Haschel follow a young girl and listen the melody learned by Haschel to Claire then by Claire to Dart, then finally by Dart to Shana. Just before, the battle we understand that Haschel finally understand that he is Dart Grandfather because he say to Dart : She doesn't know you yet making a allusion to the young Claire. During the battle, Haschel finally understand that Claire was the Incarnation of the God of War and can be possesed by him, that's probably the reason why, she killed Lotta by accident and flee Rouge because she was scared by her power and because she also wanted to be a normal girl. We can supossed she travel to Fletz, where she finally became a Hero and have a Bridge in her honour, then she left for Mille Seseau where she met Zieg who think he is the last Dragoon, they fall in love, set up in Neet and have a baby : Dart. But the Moon became Blood-Red, and Louvia and Shana and their Parents refugee in Neet, then they send Shana to Celesse and go with Louvia in the Saint Louvia, and The Evil Monster attack Neet, Zieg reconigze his ex fiancee, Rose and he decided to put in security Claire and Dart, and returned in Neet for fighting Rose using the Red Eyed Dragoon Soul, Zieg probably transform in Dragoon before he reached Rose and activate Melbu's Magic and be possesed by Melbu then he left the village without fighting Rose, Claire decided to return in the Village to help Zieg with the power of God of War and the Black Art of Rouge but she only found Rose and she probably die by her hand. So in conclusion, Haschel is the father of Claire and Grandfather of Dart, and Rose is the murderer of Claire.
Connection with HaschelEdit
- See the main section Haschel as Dart's Grandfather
While in the city of Fletz, Dart notices that the bridge has his mother's name inscribed on it. Haschel then reveals that his daughter, who has been missing for 25 years, was also named Claire and that there might be a connection between the two. Also, when the party is in Furni, Shana sings a lullaby to the mayor's daughter. Haschel recognizes the tune as the song his daughter composed and sang for him when she was dreaming of eventually having a baby. When he asks Shana where she heard it, she replies that Dart taught it to her and that his mother had sang it to him.
Battle and death in Neet Edit
Though the specifics of what happened at Neet were never mentioned in full in the story, it is speculated that during the battle, when Zieg and Claire went back into the town, Zieg was forced to use his Dragoon spirit to be able to fight with The Black Monster. Upon doing so, Melbu Frahma's curse, which he had placed on Zieg 11,000 years ago at the end of the Dragon Campaign, took effect.
At this point two things could have happened. Zieg, whom had just been possessed by Melbu Frahma, cut her down on his way out of town, or she was left alone to face The Black Monster, and being unable to fight against the might of Rose in her Dragoon form, perished.
The specifics of what happened at Neet are never mentioned in full in the story. Because of events that occurred later, though, it is known that when Zieg and Claire went back into the town, Zieg was forced to use his Dragoon spirit to be able to fight with The Black Monster. Upon doing so, Melbu Frahma's curse, which he had placed on Zieg 11,000 years ago at the end of the Dragon Campaign, took effect. Now possessed by Melbu Frahma, Zieg left the town and the villagers behind and began plotting Melbu Frahma's return to power.
Without a Dragoon or magic to aid Zieg's wife Claire, the martial arts she had learned from her father Haschel were more likely the cause of her death than her salvation. She had a good reason to believe she could help, along with there being no good reason in post-Dragoon Endiness to back away from a fight. One can only imagine whether she even had time to comprehend the powers arrayed on that battlefield.
Afterwards, Zieg, under the control of Frahma, fled, leaving Dart, a five year old orphan, wandering through the ruins of Neet, its melting snow lit by flames as the ashes slowly fell, calling for his dead mother, Claire.
