Klarion Bleak is a rebellious Witch-boy youth who, chafing under the constant direction of adults who dictate what he could and could not do with his powers, escaped Limbo Town to explore the "Blue Rafters" world of Earth.
Young, selfish, impulsive and tempermental, Klarion travels the world with his familiar, Teekl, in search of adventure and a place to practice his magic without the "interference" of adults.
Klarion was born in an underground community known as Limbo Town. Located beneath New York City's subway system, the community is made up of Puritan witch descendants of the lost population of the Roanoke Colony.
A rebellious child, Klarion clashed with the controlling and pious religious leader of the town and left the community to explore the world above.
Becoming involved in several adventures; including meeting his ancestor; the Sheeda-King Melmoth, and stopping his plan to pillage Limbo Town, Klarion becomes the new religious leader of the community.
While assisting the Seven Soldiers in fighting the invading Sheeda armies during an attack, Klarion acquired the Croatoan; a powerful machine created by the New Gods, and took control of the Sheeda in their homeland as their new king.
Perhaps growing bored, Klarion has since returned to modern Earth and continues his wanderings for adventure.
