Lolo (ロロ Roro) is a priestess in-training, and is a recurring character who first appears in Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil. She is a playable character in Klonoa Beach Volleyball, a competitor in Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament, support character in Klonoa Heroes, and has a minor appearance in Namco x Capcom. She makes her latest appearance in Klonoa: Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol.

Appearance

Lolo's appearance is the closest to a human in Lunatea, as her only animal features are her tail and large ears. She has long ginger (Orangeish-Brown or Brownish Orange) hair that reaches to her back and purple eyes. She is about the same age as Klonoa and is roughly equal to him in height.

Her clothing consists of a a pink hat, a pink short-sleeved dress that has a green winged brooch to symbolize that she is a priestess, black long-legged leggings or tights, gold bracelets that she wears on her wrists and brown shoes with pinkish-brown/brownish-pink soles and trim.

She also wears a green feather on her hat throughout most of Lunatea's Veil, but relinquishes the title at the end of the game in hopes of earning the title of Priestess on her own. In Popka's flashback of Klonoa Beach Volleyball, she is seen wearing a jacket and missing her hat. She is seen wearing her feather again in future appearances, suggesting she regained the title of priestess.

In Klonoa: Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol, her appearance has not changed much. However, Lolo now looks older. Despite this, however, she is still the same height as Klonoa.

Personality

During Lunatea's Veil, Lolo is shown to be easily excited and clumsy at times. However, she has a kind heart as seen when she saved Klonoa from drowning, helped Klonoa save a city from destruction, and sought to save her world.

She is fragile and insecure about herself and her abilities, due to the other priestesses (except The High Priestess) mocking and laughing at her constant failures (as revealed during the cut-scene at the end of the Maze of Memories level). She fell silent in sadness, after seeing this terrible memory and could only express guilt at her selfish nature to prove her capabilities though she overcame it with encouragement from Popka. This fragile side was seen again in Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol, as she burst into tears after she heard the cruel words of Nightmare Klonoa about nobody caring for her. However, she was relieved and happy to see that wasn't really the case after her friends expressed concern for her well-being, which she assured them.

Lolo is shown to be frightened easily by the ghosts in the haunted house of the Joilant Fun Park and becomes verbal about her fears.

She appears to have a shy side as well, which was shown when she got flustered and blushed full red after her possible crush on Klonoa was hinted after she stated that she liked him the way he was and covered it up with an excuse after he heard her words. During Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament, she wanted to impress him with her new abilities and was happy it worked. After he saved her from Garlen, she could only voice her gratitude to him for the rescue and took part in celebrating his victory. This is shown once more when Klonoa gave her powers praise in Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol and could only say how happy she was to see him again.

In time after her adventure with Klonoa, she has gathered more courage. It was noted by Popka on how similar she and Klonoa have become, as seen when she was very confident that she’ll regain the title of priestess on her own. In Dream Champ Tournament, she tells Klonoa about her new-found strength and performs well in Garlen's tournament, to Klonoa's surprise and amazement. She also did not hesitate to insult Guntz after he behaved very rudely towards her and Popka. This confident side was seen again after she took charge in Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol by sending Popka out to find help from the invasion and backing up her friends in defeating the invaders.

Biography

History

Lolo was a Priestess-in-training, who constantly failed to become priestess and was mocked by her fellow Priestess. She was supported by her teacher The High Priestess who always encouraged her to keep trying. A few years later, she met Popka while he was in a box in the snow. Lolo kindly gave him a scarf to keep him warm, as he pridefully told her that he could handle it but he soon became her best friend and loyal sidekick.

Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil

Lolo in Lunatea's Veil

Lolo and Popka were at the Sea of Tears when Klonoa arrived, having heard of the prophecy of his arrival Baguji the Wise foretold. She and Popka rescued Klonoa, they were present when he woke up. Lolo introduced herself and learned the dream traveler was named Klonoa. When seeing monsters were starting to appear in the area, Klonoa was told to get to the island where the statue Goddess Claire was at the middle of the Sea. Upon arriving on the island, Klonoa used his Wind Bullet to ring the Spirit Bell to which Lolo was happy about. Popka explained to Klonoa that priestesses with enough spiritual power could make the bell ring. Ringing the Spirit Bell would make a priestess-in-training, such as Lolo, a full-fledged priestess. Lolo celebrated with Popka (much to his discomfort), and then the trio made their way to Baguji's Island.

There, Lolo introduced Klonoa to the seer, Baguji, and he told Klonoa, Popka, and Lolo about the danger of the fifth kingdom that was going to rise, bringing the world to ruin. When Baguji asked Klonoa if he would help Lolo in her journey, Lolo looked at him for his answer before becoming excited when he agreed to help her save the world since he wanted to repay her as she was the one who saved him. Along with Klonoa and Popka, Lolo returned to the Kingdom of La-Lakoosha to see the High Priestess, telling her that she wished to save the world and that she rang the Spirit Bell at the Sea of Tears. The High Priestess granted Lolo the rank of a full-fledged Priestess, and appointed a mission to the heroes to gather the Elements of each of the four Kingdoms in Lunatea.

Lolo later faced a problem when Tat swiped the Element of Tranquility from her upon their arrival to Joilant. Tat then split herself into two forms of herself, one black and one white, confusing the heroes as they didn't know which Tat had the Element. The two Tats then darted to two parts of Joilant: The black Tat in Jungle Slider and the white Tat in Joilant Fun Park. It doesn't matter which one is followed as the first one won't have the Element. The heroes then go after the other Tat and retrieve the element.

However, when pursuing the black tat; they would chase her through the attraction of Jungle Slider and she would taunt Klonoa by stating girls don't like pesky boys like him. Lolo's possible crush on Klonoa is hinted at, as she would firmly state that it doesn't matter if he's pesky as she liked Klonoa just fine, but she becomes flustered and blushes full red after he noticed her words. She quickly changes the subject by reminding him they have to chase Tat, which he nervously agrees too.

During their adventure in Volk City, she and the others witnessed Leorina ringing the kingdom's Bell of Discord and summoning its Element, using a fake copy of Klonoa's ring, much to her shock. After they shut down the reactors to prevent the kingdom from being destroyed, Lolo wonders how Leorina was able to accomplish such a task. She would later learn from the High Priestess that Leorina was once a Priestess herself under the name "Leo", who abandoned her title in a haste-driven quest for power).

During their trek through the Maze of Memories in Mira-Mira, Lolo was shown to be in a hurry, not wanting to take a look at the mirrors that showed the memories of her past. However, Klonoa saw something in a large mirror, and it triggered one of Lolo's memories. It was revealed that Lolo was taunted by the other priestesses who thought she didn't have what it takes to save the world and called her a 'failure'. The memories faded, and Lolo broke down in tears. She admitted that she knew she didn't become a Priestess on her own, as it is revealed that it was really Klonoa who rang the bell. She admitted that she knew that it was Klonoa's power that got her the title of a full Priestess and she just wanted to prove to the ones who taunted her that she could become a Priestess. Klonoa tried to comfort her but she turned him away having fallen in sadness, Lolo only spoke up to apologize to Klonoa for dragging him into her selfish desires.

Afterwards, Lolo became depressed, still saddened that she wasn't qualified to save the world. When Klonoa was challenged by the guardian of the Bell of Indecision to defeat a monster named Polonte the Hatchling, Lolo hesitated, and Klonoa proceeded to fight the monster, knowing that he couldn't use the Wind Bullet without Lolo's help. As Klonoa fought the monster, Popka consoled Lolo for not helping him, calling her a fool for giving up and not continuing to try. He noted on Klonoa, a person not from their world whose trying his hardest to save it from destruction. Lolo recovered from her depression, and wondered if Klonoa would forgive her for not helping him earlier, to which Popka replied that helping him now wouldn't hurt. The young priestess then assisted Klonoa against Polonte, and the three heroes earned themselves the Element of Indecision by the Old Tree, who was impressed by their determination.

In the ending, she and Klonoa watched Leorina rebuilding the Kingdom of Sorrow. She remarked on this before she revealed that she gave up the title of a full Priestess and aimed to earn the title on her own as she smiled at her choice and Klonoa supported her. Klonoa prepared to leave the world of Lunatea, as Lolo was sad as she realized he'd have to go back to his own world and was calm and stated it was alright. However, her feelings were exposed as she broke down in tears and hugged him, refusing to let him go. Klonoa reassured Lolo that even when he leaves Lunatea, they will always be together. Lolo gently wiped her tears, and she and Popka watched happily as Klonoa disappeared from their world.

Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament

Sometime later, Lolo and Popka were on an errand in Lunatea before they found a letter that teleported them and they appeared as contestants for the Dream Champ Tournament. They saw that they weren't the only ones as others were chosen, before they spotted and called out to Klonoa who also joined.

The reunited friends caught up, before Garlen appeared and told they contestants to prepare. Klonoa asked Lolo if she wanted to join him but she tells him that she got stronger since their last meeting and will prove it to him as he gave an impressed comment. After the first round, it is revealed Lolo went up against Zweegle and won the match, though Popka stated he helped her in succeeding and Zweegle being anemic, to her embarrassment.

During a break, Lolo met Klonoa's old friend Chipple and they became friends as well before the next round started.

She and Popka advanced to the semi-finals while happy Klonoa made it too. She was sad to learn that Chipple had lost his match and had to leave.

She soon spoke with Guntz and stated it was nice to meet him but he acted rude towards her by insulting her. With this, Lolo angrily called him a jerk as he smugly walked away.

After losing her next match to Guntz, she was kidnapped by Garlen and was shown captured to Klonoa on a monitor, much to Klonoa's fury. Garlen told the angry hero that she was going to be made into a gear by him but offered Klonoa the chance to save her should he become champion.

Lolo watches as Suiryu then revealed himself to be an officer investigating Garlen who he took into custody after he was breaking down. Guntz made off with the prize money but not before giving Klonoa the tournament trophy causing him to become the champion of the Dream Champ Tournament. Lolo celebrated Klonoa's status as the best hero.

If she wins, Lolo takes Klonoa and Popka on a shopping trip with her prize money, but ends up breaking almost everything she touches. This prompts Klonoa to pitch in and carry the bags for her, to Lolo's embarrassment. Lolo promises to do better in shopping while Popka notes Klonoa doesn't feel like shopping anymore.

Lolo appears as a NPC, where she is still a Priestess-in-training. In an alternate universe, she was to train at the Sky Temple and Klonoa wanted to give her a present before he went on his journey as she made him promise to return safely before he gives the item to her, which he does. Later on, Lolo was about to head for the temple as Klonoa returned and she noticed his condition but he assured her he was fine. After he returned, Klonoa then gave her the present the Hikari Sakura, a flower said to give good luck. Lolo was surprised by the flower and becomes touched after Klonoa explained his reasons for getting it.

The friends returned to Lunatea along with the three heroes. Once there, she was reunited with Popka, and in the credits, the two were on their way back to the Sky Temple.

Klonoa: Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol

Lolo in Klonoa: Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol

As swarms of Nighty-Knights began invading Lunatea, Lolo along with Popka and the High Priestess witnessed this from the tower. As the High Priestess already gave up on hope on fighting them, Lolo encouraged her teacher to not lose faith. However, the High Priestess then told Lolo and Popka to ring the Bell of Tranquility and find someone to help them, but Lolo wanted to stay at her side, so she instructed Popka to go and find help. After he agreed, she rang the bell and sent him through the portal.

Later on, Popka finds Klonoa and they are sent to a black and white world, where they along with Huepow witnessed Lolo being imprisoned in a bubble by an evil version of Klonoa named Nightmare Klonoa, who taunted the crying girl that he (posing as the real Klonoa) won't come back for her as nobody cared for her. His cold words cause her to believe him, as a result Lolo falls into a sad depression and cries before Popka appears, surprising her.

Lolo tries to get Popka to leave, since she believed nobody cared for her but he tells her that he and Klonoa have come to free her. She tearfully tells him that Klonoa left and will never return for them however, Popka points out the real Klonoa who engages in battle with Nightmare Klonoa for her sake. Seeing this, Lolo realizes Klonoa is truly back and is overjoyed at his return. After Klonoa repels his doppelgänger, Lolo is soon freed by him, while happily telling her worried friends she's alright. She is asked what she remembers but she only recalls taking a nap before an invasion, Klonoa soon tells her that she is having a nightmare due to her anxiety and bad emotions eating at her. Hearing this, she briefly worries if they're not really with her but is told they will return with her after she wakes up. With these words, Lolo then begins to wake up as her friends cling to her and they return to Lunatea.

Once in reality, she wakes up to her smiling friends watching over her before she happily hugs Klonoa due to his return. She then realized the matter at hand, as she and her friends begin to repel the invading enemies. When Huepow revealed he was weakened from the travels, Lolo reveals as Priestess she could use her power to enhance Klonoa's wind ring and they push the enemy back. She and Klonoa rush inside in the tower to regroup. The High Priestess then arrives complimenting Klonoa but he gave Lolo the praise due to her actions, which caused her to get shy and state she was happy to have him back.

The happy moment is short-lived as they are confronted by Tenebrae Hue, who has gathered Noctis' energy and now has the power to control dreams and nightmares. After Klonoa refuses to surrender, Hue prepares his attack while Klonoa guards Lolo. They watch as Hue summons Chipple, Guntz, and Nightmare Klonoa, much to Klonoa and Lolo's shock, and commands them to destroy Klonoa and his friends.
