This recently came to mind while thinking about backstories to characters I have created.
I started to wonder, what do I (or we) really know about Klonoa?
I mean, aside from the fact that he is the "Dream Traveler".
What do we know about him?
What family does he have?
Can't really count his grandfather since I'm pretty sure that's revealed in text somewhere that Grandpa isn't actually Klonoa's grandfather.
And if you consider that spoilers... why haven't you already beaten a 21 year old game? Not that hard to emulate!
Why was he specifically chosen to be the Dream Traveler? Or is it even something unique to him?
Are any number of the things he has done real?
Is Klonoa even a Dream Traveler?
Well, I can kind of answer that.
Since Klonoa appeared in Emperor Jilius' dream in Empire of Dreams.
I remember the last cutscene from Empire of Dreams where Jilius wakes up, realizing that he had been dreaming.
And thanks Klonoa for helping him.
So in short, yes, Klonoa really has the ability to visit the dreams of other people and help them.
Possibly sacrificing his own in the process.
But that's the only one I can really provide any answer towards.
I'm curious to see if there's anything else to learn about Klonoa.
Also I don't know if I can count Heroes as a reliable source in this, since Heroes seems to be a rewriting of Klonoa's past. Huh, unless Heroes takes place in the awake world and not the dream world.
