Background[edit | edit source]
Clouse was a Elemental Master Wizard Sorcerer Mage and Magician of Magic Dark Arts/Dark Magic Dark Mage Dark Magician Dark Sorcerer Dark Wizard and the Second-In-Command and Right Hand Man of the Notorious Master Chen. He owned a large serpent that lurked in the underground tunnels of Chen's palace.
As a young student, Clouse trained under Chen, though was rivals with Garmadon, and was furious when Chen chose the latter over him to be his right hand man. However, Garmadon soon left Chen's side to fight with Wu against the serpentine, and Clouse helped Chen to divide the elemental masters. They sided with the serpentine, though were defeated and banished to a distant island. From that island, Chen's criminal empire spread, and the master eventually organized a Tournament of Elements as a cover to steal the powers of the elemental masters necessary to perform a spell that would turn him and his followers into Anacondrai. ("Spellbound")
At the start of the tournament, Clouse was sent by Chen to New Ninjago City on the ferry to retrieve the elemental masters from the pier and bring them to the secluded island for the tournament. Clouse welcomed the Ninja, believing a master of spinjitzu would be favorable in the tournament, yet quickly confiscated a pair of nunchucks that Jay attempted to smuggle aboard. As the last of them were boarding however, Garmadon arrived in an attempt of talk his son out of going. When Clouse declared that there was no room on the ferry for him to come along as well, the sensei kicked one of the thugs overboard. Clouse permitted him on board and they set sail.
During the voyage, Clouse patrolled the boat with Eyezor and a few other thugs, at one point breaking up a fight between Kai and Karlof. As the sun rose, he announced to the passengers that they were approaching Master Chen's island. While the elemental masters were busy gazing at it, Clouse contacted Chen to warn him of Garmadon. ("The Invitation")
As the ferry arrived at the island, Clouse escorted the contestants into Chen's palace where he presented the master himself. While the kabuki lead the contestants to their rooms, Clouse escorted Garmadon outside the palace under the reason that there was no room for him. During the first tournament, Clouse attempted to use dark magic to prevent Lloyd from obtaining one of the Jadeblades, but was stopped by Garmadon. That night, Clouse was present with Chen as his master used the staff of elements to take the elemental powers of Karlof, who had lost in the first round. Later, his serpent presented with a piece of cloth from the imposter cultists, revealing them to be the Ninja. ("Only One Can Remain")
The next day, Clouse stood beside his master during the first three tournaments, but was forbidden by Chen to use dark magic to prevent Kai from winning. Later while Chen was being entertained by the kabuki, Clouse questioned as to why the Ninja were allowed to remain free when they had spied on the ceremony the night prior. In response, Chen ordered Clouse to change the brackets so that Cole and Jay would face each other. During the fight, Clouse and Zugu went to the dungeons to check on the prisoners only to find Zane trying to escape. Clouse stunned the nindroid and ordered Zugu to imprison him in more secure chains. ("Versus")
Clouse stood by Chen during Skylor and Jacob's battle, then ventured to the prison level with Zugu to take the defeated Cole to work in the noodle factory. In the middle of the night, Clouse awoke the contestants to partake in the Thunderblade competition and explained how everyone will have the chance to effect the outcome. While the elemental masters were preparing for the event, Clouse returned to the factory just as Jacob was trying to escape and ordered Zugu to feed him to the pet serpent. During the Thunderblade challenge, Clouse attempted to perform sorcery to prevent Lloyd from winning, but was stopped by Garmadon. ("Ninja Roll")
The following day during a banquet to celebrate the halfway mark of the Tournament, Clouse informed Chen of the secret alliance the Ninja had made, and advised them to reveal the Staff of Elements. Later, on his way to his quarters, he encountered Zugu, who informed him that Cole and Zane had escaped. Clouse ordered them to release his serpent, then proceeded into his room, only to find kabuki paint on his spell book and the spell to transform them into anacondrai missing. He reported the incident to Chen, who ordered his minions to search the kabuki. They soon discovered Nya disguised as one and Clouse pursued her through the palace, though she managed to escape into the jungle. ("Spy for a Spy")
The next day, Clouse observed the manhut for Nya from inside the captured DB X along with Chen, as they had convinced the elemental fighters to hunt her down in order to advance to the final round. At Chen's cue, Clouse captured the elemental masters with Eyezor. When he came across Jay using the electro-mech, Clouse used his sorcery to create himself a mech, and quickly defeated the Master of Lightning. ("Spellbound")
Clouse later attended the ceremony where Chen took away the Elemental Masters' powers. While Chen gave Kai a tour around his museum, Clouse alerted him that Lloyd, Nya and Garmadon have entered the palace. As Lloyd and Garmadon defeated the cultists, Clouse confronted the two and blasted them with his magic. Garmadon told Lloyd to leave and engaged Clouse in a duel, however Clouse easily cut through Garmadon's sword with an Anacondrai blade, then captured Garmadon and took him to the dungeons. He later visited Garmadon and Nya, who were chained up in a cave, along with Chen, Skylor and Kai, whom Chen semmingly turned to his side. Chen and Clouse told them that Clouse's serpemt will soon wake up and eat them, before leaving to complete the spell that would turn Chen and his followers into Anacondrai. Clouse witnessed as Chen took Lloyd's power and they began to recite the spell, but Kai and Skylor intervened, with Kai claiming Chen's staff. Clouse attempted to drop venom from a statue on Lloyd, but Kai used Lloyd's own element to shield him and froze Clouse in a block of ice. After the battle, Clouse escaped through a doorway to the tunnels with his master, Chope, Kapau, Zugu, Eyezor and a captured Skylor ("The Forgotten Element")
Clouse, along with Chen returned to the serpent's cave, where Clouse mourned the loss of his pet. They then got the idea to use the powers Skylor absorbed to complete the spell, but Skylor escaped, forcing Chen and Clouse, along with their army to chase after her. Suddenly, they were attacked by Cole and Garmadon on the Roto-Jet. Clouse landed on the jet and began to sabotage it, before he was attacked by Garmadon and the two fell down to the jungle. Clouse and Garmadon began fighting and Clouse opened a portal to the Cursed Realm, planning to banish Garmadon. Clouse gloated in victory, but this gave Garmadon the oppurtunity to grab Clouse and push him into the portal, banishing him into the Cursed Realm. ("The Day of the Dragon")
Clouse would eventually be reunited with his master once again, after Garmadon sacrificed himself to banish all of the Anacondrai Cultists to the Cursed Realm.
After Lloyd was banished to the Cursed Realm by Morro, he ran past serveral cells, including Chen and Clouse's. Chen was shocked by Lloyd's presence and asked if it was really him, but Clouse, who was secretly trying to escape using his magic, told Chen that he was merely seeing things. He later successfully escaped from the Cursed Realm before it was destroyed by Nya. ("Curseworld, Part II")
Clouse eventually found his way into Stiix, where he came across the Teapot of Tyrahn. He entered an unknown location, where he rubbed the teapot and released the ancient djinn Nadakhan, who was able to grant him three wishes. Clouse wished for his spellbook, which appeared to him. Clouse began to read it, but it suddenly caught fire and burned to ash, due to being destroyed by the ninja earier. Clouse then wished to become human again, but the process caused him extreme pain, forcing him to wish for the pain to go away, causing Nadakhan to trap him inside the teapot. ("Infamous")
When Jay entered the Djinn Blade of Djinjago and freed his friends, Clouse brifely confronted him, just as he was about to escape, and grabbed him by the leg, attempting to pull him back. Jay however, kicked him, causing Clouse to fall back into the empty void, that was inside the blade. ("Operation Land Ho!")
After Jay made his final wish, the timeline was reset to before Nadalhan was released. Due to this, Clouse was released from the Djinn Blade, but was once again a ghost, with no memory of anything that happened. He tried to find the teapot again, but was spotted by the civillains and was chased away, preventing him from ever releasing Nadakhan. ("The Way Back")
