The Lord Ruler is going to get me sooner or later. At least this way I get to spit in his face as I go. Overthrowing the Final Empire? It’s got style.

—Clubs to Dockson[1]

Cladent[2] was a skaa Misting from the Final Empire on Scadrial.[3] He was a member of Kelsier's thieving crew and went by the nickname Clubs.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Clubs is described as having a gnarled face with an unhappy expression, similar to a piece of knotted wood. Although he appears to be much older than Breeze, he still seems to be physically fit. He usually displays a grim and pessimistic demeanor, regarding those around him with disapproval.[3] He walks with a limp due to a past injury that he got in battle, and has a large scar from it.[4]

Attributes and Abilities[edit]

With Kelsier and the other members of his crew

Clubs is a Smoker. Burning copper allows him to form an invisible "coppercloud" around him that blocks the bronze senses of Seekers and Mistborn, allowing people nearby to use Allomancy without being discovered. It also makes him immune to emotional Allomancy while burning copper.

History[edit]

Before joining Kelsier's crew Clubs was a soldier in the Lord Ruler’s army with some command. He was a Smoker. He was also a successful carpenter and employed several apprentices, some of whom were also Smokers.[5]At some point in the past he 'adopted' his nephew Spook after his parents discovered he was a Misting and abandoned him.[6] Kelsier's crew used Club's shop as a secret base of operations in Luthadel. Like most Smokers, he was tasked with maintaining a coppercloud around his shop to protect those inside from prying Seekers. After the Lord Ruler was defeated, Elend appointed Clubs as the general of his armies.[7]

He disliked Captain Demoux preaching the Church of the Survivor to his troops.[8] Clubs came to befriend Breeze. The two often spent time in the evenings conversing and drinking at Keep Venture.

Before the Battle of Luthadel, Sazed tried to teach him about the religion of Dadradah, which focuses on art and craftsmanship. Sazed remarked that the care that Clubs devoted to his carpentry showed his true passion to be art, not warfare. As a token of the Dadradah faith, he also gives Clubs a small wooden disk carved with the image of a brush.[9]

He died during the Battle of Luthadel, killed by a koloss while saving Breeze.[10] Later on, Sazed found the wooden disk that he gave Clubs tied to the man's corpse.[11]
