Let it be me, mighty Koda, that gives his life for peace. Let it be me that dies for balance. Let it be me that rejoins with nature knowing that I have fought and sacrificed for that which I believe. For such is the journey of a warrior. Such is the path of the Claw.
— Cliffwalker, Claw of the Gentle Tide Sanctuary
The Claw is the "co-leader" of the kodan. He is responsible for maintaining the order and security of the Sanctuary, with the help of the Guardians. Also, the Claw is the only one that is allowed to seek guidance from the Voice. This is because there is a connection between the Claw and the Voice, which in turn links both of them to the Sanctuary. The Claw takes his duties seriously, believing that, if he fails, the result would taint the Voice and the Sanctuary as well.
