Described as something like "Peter Pan mixed with The Crucible", Klarion is a mischievous, troublesome imp from another reality. He's a natural explorer and troublemaker, liking nothing better than to push the rules of both society and reality. Klarion has a flare for the dramatic, announcing himself as "Klarion, the (bumbumBUM!) Witch-Boy!" and insisting others address him as such.
In many ways, Klarion is the direct opposite of Raven, viewing the world with loud, child-like enthusiasm instead of pessimism. He is not nearly as restrained with his powers and seems to forget they are unusual in this world. This makes him a hazard to all around him. When he does not get his way, Klarion often throws devastating magical tantrums.
His best friend in the whole world is Teekl, his familiar, with whom he shares a deep bond. Klarion will protect Teekl at all costs, viciously attacking anything that tries to harm her and turning on friend and enemy alike if she's in danger. It is very difficult for Klarion to function without Teekl, making her the greatest means of controlling the pint-sized warlock.
Appearance in the series-proper-- Under Development.

- Clothing-wise, Klarion's outfit is a modified version of David's school-boy jacket-and-shorts. This redesign primarily involves: the oversized white cuffs from Kirby's model; the colouring, hosiery, and doublet-flare on the jacket from Morrison's design; and the removal of the bow-tie from David's design.
- Voiced by Dennis' VA from the 2009 "Dennis & Gnasher" cartoon.
- This is the third animated incarnation of Klarion (if you discount Cartoon Monsoon). His first animated appearance was in the series New Batman Adventures, in which he was also depicted as a spoiled human boy who dabbled in witchcraft. His second animated appearance was in the series Young Justice, in which he was still a bratty sociopath but had been upgraded to a "Lord of Chaos" and was a much more deadly threat. Interestingly, this version is the only one that takes primary inspiration from the Grant Morrison version rather the original Kirby.
