Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates character

Yuri is a Clavat boy from Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates who is Chelinka's twin brother. The two are very close. Naturally optimistic and undeterred by circumstances, he is filled with insatiable curiosity and fearlessness, and yet he is kind and guileless. Yuri would risk his life for the sake of others.


Appearance and Personality

At the beginning of the game, Yuri is a young boy of no more than eight years of age, with brown hair and simple clothing. He's cheerful and likes to play tricks on his sister, although he is never mean to her. He is brave and sees his father as his role model. After some of the events of the game, he seemingly ages a few years and becomes more responsible while developing a more serious view of life. Having to take care of his sister for years, unable to get her to speak, made him become more taciturn, but this does not stop him him from breaking into tears when Chelinka awakens and is finally able to stand up.

The many different pieces of equipment make Yuri's ingame appearance vary with each one of them.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Yuri is the "youngest" child of Latov and Aleria, born 28 seconds after Chelinka. Aleria was taken away from Chelinka and him by Cu Chaspel in return for the twins' safety, a deal that would eventually be broken. Ever since, Latov always told the twins that their mother had died while giving birth to them.

The story of Yuri and his twin sister begins one day in their home village, Villa. Yuri lives here with his father, sister, and close friends, the Lilty, Meeth, and the Yuke, Alhanalem (whom they call "Al"). After being taught to use a hatchet, the siblings head off to the Valley of Heroes. It is here that Yuri is taught the basics of fighting by Stiltzkin. After defeating the dungeon boss, a Scorpion, Yuri and Chelinka are confronted by the ghost of Princess Tilika. He tries to speak to her but Chelinka, frightened by the ghostly figure, grabs Yuri and runs.

One night in Villa, he follows his father, who is staring off at the Ignes Fatui floating over Lake Cyela. When joined by Chelinka, the family sits together staring at the lake as Latov explains to them the nature of the lights over the water and tells them about their mother and how she was a famed Oracle.

Yuri and his family head off to Rebena Te Ra the next day. While Latov goes off to do business, Yuri and Chelinka explore the city and meet the townspeople. When the town clock strikes three, the children return to the plaza to meet with their father. They find he is nowhere to be found until they see him walking into Old Town. After defeating an attacking Behemoth, the twins are again with the ghost of Tilika, who remains silent. They meet up again with Latov shortly after and leave Rebena Te Ra.

One night, Cu Chaspel stormed into the family household and demanded Chelinka be handed over to the temple. Latov would not allow his daughter to be taken and was slain by the Lunite. Devastated by the loss, Yuri and Chelinka used the power of the Crystal to defeat Cu Chaspel. After the horrifying night, Yuri mournfully dug a grave for his father. When he headed home to cook dinner for his sister, he found that she was unable to move and was in a state of total silence. Unsure of what the future would bring, Yuri began training endlessly so he could protect all that was left of his family. Several years later, Chelinka finally awoke and greeted her twin brother in an emotional reunion.

After reuniting with Alhanalem, the trio journeyed to Rebena Te Ra in order to warn King Kolka about the danger the Crystal Temple poses for the kingdom. After being refused the entrance by the guards, they proceed to Abyssus Forest with the purpose of vanquishing the recent monster threat that had arisen; the person who ended the threat would receive an audience with the king. After meeting Gnash and defeating the Giant Mandrake, they return to the city. Meeting the King Kolka, they discover that an impostor claiming to be Alhanalem himself had tricked the king and bent him to her will. The party travels to the ruins of Rela Cyel in order to retrieve an old gift the king made to Alhanalem as a proof of his identity. There, the party reunites with Meeth.

At the end of the game, after defeating Galdes, Yuri and Chelinka return home, with Chelinka returned to her mute self, when Yuri suddenly collapses one day. Over time, Yuri grows sick and is eventually confined to bed. Being near death, Chelinka uses all of her magic to save Yuri's life. Yuri is detached from his reality by her extreme use of magic, and wanders around multiple realities before the multiple Chelinkas and Yuris of the multiverse permanently seal off the branch of history that led to the events of the game. Yuri is then returned to his younger self and happily is reunited with his whole family, including Latov and Aleria.

Equipment and Stats

Yuri, as a clavat, has high attack and defense but lacks a strong magic and magic defense. He can equip all of the heavy equipment in the game, including heavy armour and swords, without having his class' stats negatively affected.


Yuri's unique abilities, as a clavat in Ring of Fates, include performing chained physical attacks and power attacks. At high levels, Yuri can chain up to five physical attacks that often stun the enemies and sometimes trip them. He is also able to learn a counter-attack, in which he immediately hits an enemy after successfully blocking an attack.
