The Owl House Wiki
Advertisement

I don't want people to see me as a big, scary monster anymore.

King Clawthorne is the tritagonist of The Owl House. He is a young titan (initially believed to be a Demon) who is Eda's sidekick and later adoptive son,[4] and Luz's best friend. Initially, he sought to restore his supposed title and glory as the "King of Demons", before he switched to trying to discover his family and reunite with them. However, it is later discovered that he is actually the last of the titan race,[5] and the son of the Titan, whose remains form the Boiling Isles.[3] This revelation gives King a new outlook on life, and after reflecting on himself, he comes to accept his identity, but doesn't let it define him. King's new goal is to protect those he cares about, namely from Emperor Belos and the Collector, the latter of whom aspires to acquire King's friendship by any means necessary.

During the Day of Unity, King reluctantly releases the Collector in order to save the Isles' denizens from the Draining Spell, causing him to then give himself up to to ensure Luz and her friends safely retreat to the Human Realm. In the months that follow, King is forced to "befriend" and assist the Collector in his twisted reign of chaos over the Isles, which takes the form of an elaborate game based on the events of King's life. Although King tries to convince the Collector to see the error of his ways, the Collector later traps King, Eda, and Luz in a new series of games in retaliation for a perceived betrayal on King's part. Eventually, King and his friends manage to redeem the Collector, but Belos corrupts the Isles and takes control of the Titan soon after. A grueling battle against the tyrant ensues, and King and his friends manage to defeat Belos once and for all and put an end to his reign of terror.

With the Emperor defeated and the Collector reformed, King and his friends help rebuild the Isles to a better state, but keeps contact with the Collector through the years. Four years later, King lives happily with his friends and family as an accepted citizen of the Isles and has matured enough to power glyph magic once more like his father.

Appearance

Body

King is a young, bipedal titan with a small stature. He has slightly purplish dark gray fur, save for his stomach and the tip of his tail, which are mauve in color. He has short limbs, a round body and stomach, and a bushy, fox like tail. Each of his hands possess two triangular, bone-like claws with flat inner sides, acting as his fingers, as well as short, pointed thumbs. His feet are somewhat stumpy and have mauve metatarsal pads, with two more claws on the front of either foot acting as his toes.

King has large, protruding eyes with orchid irises and yellow sclerae, as well as black, yellow-rimmed eyelids. He has slightly longer and shaggier fur around his cheeks, neck and nape. His inner mouth is light purple, with a long, darker purple tongue, as well as two lower canine teeth, which are the only visible teeth inside his mouth. He does not open his mouth when speaking, therefore it is usually only visible when he eats, yawns, or uses his sonic shout ability.

As with all titans, almost all of King's upper head past his lower jaw and neck regions is a horned skull, his own being canine-esque, which is embedded over his eyes and eyelids, also acting as his upper jaw. His horns are tall and point backward, curving slightly inward, the left of which is broken off near the base in a notch shape. The muzzle of his skull has two large, outward-pointing canine teeth, and he has two molars on either side near the base of it. He has an upside-down triangle-shaped nasal cavity covered by a pointed upper nasal bone, giving the hole a pointed, heart-shaped appearance when viewed head on. The skull itself is entirely stationary, save for his brow ridges, which can change position with his expression like normal brows.

As of "Echoes of the Past", King's broken horn has been glued back on by Luz, appearing effectively identical to the other, except for its slightly darker shade and a thin line from where it has been joined together.

Following an airship crash in "King's Tide", King gains a crack on the left side of his skull, running from his horn to the top of his eye socket.

When swapped with Luz, King resembles almost all of Luz's appearance and characteristics, but with erect, slicked-back hair, violet eyes with yellow sclera, fangs, and no eyelashes.

After witnessing Luz's "death", King took a high-powered form in his rage. He grows slightly larger and assumes a quadrupedal stance, his horns become taller, his eyes turn a bright violet, and his inner mouth, which is now capable of opening much wider, turns blue, with the latter two glowing brightly. His fur becomes much longer and spikier, especially around his neck and chest.

In the epilogue of "Watching and Dreaming", King's limbs, tail, horns, and fangs have become slightly lengthened. His thumbs, previously not claws, have grown bone-like claws like his other two fingers, and his four back teeth have become pointy. His fur has become slightly longer and more ruffled in appearance, giving him fur tufts on his elbows and ankles. His tail is also bushier and the crack in his skull remains.

Clothing

Initially, King wears practically nothing, save for a dark red collar with a blank circular tag.

As of "Echoes of the Past", he has etched the symbol found on his island into his collar tag.

In "For the Future", King wears robes and a nightcap resembling the Collector's, as well as a small white rectangular bandage over the crack in his skull.

In the epilogue of "Watching and Dreaming", King wears a thin red necklace with a circular gold tag engraved with his initials, "KC". A blue, star-shaped sticker covers the crack on his skull.

Personality

S01E10 Escape of the Palisman - 3

King has a wild dream of becoming the King of Demons.

Initially, King is shown as loud, feisty, self-centered, expressive, lazy, comedic, and constantly laughing at anything that gives him enjoyment.

Befitting his name, King is used to acting like a monarch, treating people and objects as minions, ordering others around, and acting bigger than he is. He sometimes manages to assume leadership of some form, but loses it due to his negligence and ignorance. King hates being called cute and being treated like a baby, yet due to his small size, he has to rely on accessories made for infants, such as high chairs and baby carriers.

S01E05 Covention (239)

King has a huge appetite when it comes to food like cupcakes.

King has a tremendous love for food. When Luz offered to stay to become a witch, King first wanted Eda to accept, so she could make them snacks. Whenever he is against doing something, the mention of food can change his mind. He is also shown to be lazy, often lying around for naps instead of working and at times must be forced or blackmailed, much to his annoyance. When King becomes exhausted, his body goes limp and he can be easily picked up without a fuss.

Interestingly, in "Sense and Insensitivity", King tells Luz fame is the closest he'll ever come to accomplishing his dream, implying that he doesn't believe he'll ever reclaim his throne as the supposed “King of Demons”.

Echoes of the Past - 1042

King after realizing the truth about his past.

In "Echoes of the Past", King is shown to be insecure. After Lilith and Hooty express their doubts about King's past, he goes out of his way to prove it by bringing them to an island where he claims used to be his kingdom. After Eda reveals the truth about how she found him, he feels hurt and runs away confused and troubled. At the time, he doubts his friends will still like him if he isn't the "King of Demons".

King's Tide (2461)

With his selflessness and care for Luz's safety, King is willing to sacrifice himself into being captured by the Collector so she and her friends would get to the Human Realm.

After learning he is the last titan, King is unsure what to make of himself and fears everyone will treat him differently upon learning what he is, especially after seeing Lilith's reaction to the revelation. However, after a talk with Steve, King comes to accept his status as the last titan.

After freeing the Collector, King becomes more concerned for his friend's safety, as he forces Luz and her friends into the Human Realm rather than face the Collector. In the months that followed, King became more concerned for the safety of his companions, fearful Eda will be caught not in her own beast form. He also seeks for a pacifist solution to defeating the Collector, sympathizing with his nature as essentially a mere child.

Background

Early life

King in his Egg S2E3

King before he hatched.

King is a baby titan found on an unknown island in the Boiling Sea. According to Lilith, the castle he was found in is ancient. King's father hid his egg in the castle when the Collector-Titan war claimed the lives of the other titans, using a protective rune in multiple locations to ward the place from the Collectors. King recalls hearing his father's roar, meaning "son", and then an explosion, while he was still developing in the egg. An unknown amount of time later, likely many centuries or millennia, since King's father had died and formed the Boiling Isles and its population in the meantime, King hatched into the room at the top of the castle. Jean-Luc was there to protect him in the absence of his father. To survive, baby King would catch flies that had flown into the castle to eat.[2]

While Eda was on the run from the Emperor's Coven, she came across the island and went inside the castle to shelter herself from the boiling rains. Inside, she found King stacking rocks and petted him, initially believing he was some kind of dog. However, she was attacked by Jean-Luc, who perceived Eda as an intruder. Though Jean-Luc did manage to damage one of King's horns, Eda managed to fly herself and King to safety. Afterwards, Eda took King home with her and put a red collar on him. One day, she came in to find King stacking household objects like he did in his castle, and commented how he looked like "a king amongst his subjects". King repeated the word "king", and Eda explained what the word meant. King would adopt the word as his name and believe that he was a despotic tyrant in the past. Eda never told King how she found him and instead played along with his fantasies as the King of Demons. However, she did hold on to King's damaged horn fragment.[2]

Meeting Luz

She drops him and Luz off and they sneak inside and talk to three detained personal and hide from Warden Wrath in an empty cell. After the warden leaves, he and Luz sneak into the confiscation room where Luz retrieves his crown, a cardboard crown from a fast food restaurant. Soon the warden arrives, apprehends King and his companions, crushes King's crown, and asks Eda on a date. In response, Eda spits in the warden's face and the three escape. After Eda fights the warden in the courtyard, a hole is blasted in the cell block and he and Luz convince the prisoners to rise up. The prisoners attack the warden and they escape. Back at The Owl House, he and Eda say their goodbyes to Luz as Eda opens the portal to the Human Realm. However Luz decides to stay in the Demon Realm and learn magic.

As he trains the trash slug by feeding it treats, they realize Luz has been gone for a while, and Hooty tells them to go north. After Eda learns that Luz is at Hexside School of Magic and Demonics, King declares that he wins the bet. However the trash slug, who grew to the size of a cart, turns on him after he runs out of treats. King begs Eda for help and she helps him douse the trash slug in salt to shrink it.

She then hands it over, but not before cracking it. Eda arrives shortly after and they return to the Owl House mildly successful with Amity's glove being stained with blood from the key.

A few days later, King helps Luz and Eda create a new portal and tie Luz to a rope to pull her out if it starts to close. They wait and eventually the door starts to collapse and they pull Luz out. Luz, who promised her mother she would stay in the Human Realm when she got back, lies and says her mother is excited to meet them. However, they later learn the truth and plan to help her convince Camila otherwise.

Kikimora reveals her family will disown her if she misses a family reunion, but she cannot get time off. Luz offers to kidnap Kikimora and they use the incident to get to Raine. He and Hooty pilot a Belos float that sets off insulting fireworks and they distract the guards as Eda and Luz kidnap Raine and Kikimora.

Eda, King and Hooty comfort Luz, until Lilith suddenly arrives at the Owl House, having heard news of what happened. Hooty is so happy to see Lilith that he coughs up a letter he received for King when King first developed his sonic blasts. They read it and find a key with it.

The man introduces himself as Tarak and explains how he is a member of the Titan Trappers, a tribe dedicated to eradicating the titans and freeing the Grand Huntsman. As King bonds with his suspected family, Luz and Hooty realize the Titan Trappers are merely witches dressed as titans, and rush to save King after realizing he is an actual titan.

After the Blight siblings are freed, they go to Blight Industries where he breaks away from the group and speaks with Alador Blight, telling him about the Draining Spell. He and Alador go back to the factory to tell the others of the true purpose of the Day of Unity. However, Odalia already knows and a fight breaks out. Kikimora, who is at the factory picking up a last minute order of Abomatons, grabs Hunter and takes him with her. After Alador destroys the factory and its inventory, Odalia leaves and they head to Kikimora's airship.

When King sees the Collector, he ignores him until the Collector claims he cannot see him. King realizes that the symbol on his tag makes him invisible to the Collector, and subsequently removes it. The Collector recognizes King and says he wanted to play with him, but King's father would not let him. King asks the Collector to stop the Draining Spell and he agrees only if they play a game King mentioned called "Owl House."

Relationships

Luz Noceda

Really Small Problems - 021

Luz and King making puns together during their "comedy hour" in "Really Small Problems".

At the start of the series, King did not enjoy Luz's affection for him and, for the most part, tried to escape her various attempts at embracing him. However, he did enjoy Luz's meals that she provided for them both (which she started doing per his suggestion). King would sometimes treat Luz like a servant, but would know deep down that she would in no way serve him.

Eventually, King does warm up to Luz. In "The Intruder", he wishes that, as she is one of his few friends, she would pay attention to him and his interests (i.e. the types of demons that he was trying to teach her about) instead of focusing all her attention on magic. King has shown to be defensive for Luz, such as when he fears his "boo-boo buddy" is taken by the 'monster' in "The Intruder", he chases after it, demanding Luz back. In "Covention", he is quick to get angry at a student for cheering Amity's name and not Luz's.

Throughout the series, King and Luz are seen to be bonding well and always doing things together. However, their friendship isn't completely without its hurdles. For example, in "Sense and Insensitivity", Luz decides to write a story together with King and submit it into a writing contest. However, King doesn't really see eye to eye with her on the story content, and decides to change everything when she leaves momentarily; this hurts Luz and she quits the project. King eventually becomes famous due to his writing, but realizes he can't write a novel without rebelling against Luz's "gushy fantasy slop". When he sees Luz at his book signing event, he runs up to her and asks her for help, telling her just that. Feeling offended, Luz refuses, then turns around and leaves. Later, they are both trapped by Piniet inside a shrinking box, who forces them to write a book in a specific amount of time or they will be crushed into cubes. King refuses Luz's suggestion to use her story, saying it's too lovey-dovey. Luz finally snaps and tells King that his refusal to compromise is the reason why they are trapped in the situation. Upon hearing this, King finally realizes his mistake and apologizes to Luz for hurting her feelings, which she accepts. With teamwork and a bit of luck, the duo ultimately manage to get out of the situation unharmed.

To King, Luz is his best friend and surrogate sister, and probably the most comforting person he can be with. He expresses jealousy whenever Luz hangs out with other people, such as Gus, Willow and Amity, although the trait mellowed down considerably as time passed. There were times where King also seemed to be very possessive of Luz, even claiming at some point he was never letting her return to the Human Realm, although he eventually came to accept she would have to leave at some point.

King also has great trust in Luz, advising Eda to let her talk with the Collector after surviving his games, knowing that Luz might be the only person who can help the child see reason. When Luz was momentarily killed by Titan-Belos, King's grief and anger was so great, he gained a feral form never seen before, determined to avenge her, showing great relief when Luz came back and teaming up with her and Eda to stop the former emperor.

Eda Clawthorne

King and Eda S1 EP16 2

Eda and King in "Enchanting Grom Fright".

Eda is King's adoptive mother. Eight years prior to the start of the series, Eda found King on an unknown island while running from the Emperor's Coven. As Jean-Luc started attacking them, Eda picked up King and fled, and took him home later. She called him a king after seeing him build a series of small statues out of pillows and stuffed animals. It was then that King said his first word "king", and began to think of himself as a tyrannical overlord. Amused and surprised by his sentience, Eda simply played along and fed King the story that he was a Demon King, a story she did not expect him to take so closely to heart in the future. Eda kept this hidden for the mostly unknown reasons, although it was most likely because (like Luz) she knew it would hurt and confuse King if he were to find out the truth. Since then, the two have been good friends, and they have a friendly banter every now and then. King believes himself to be better than Eda by title and is not afraid to go up against her to prove himself, as seen in "I Was a Teenage Abomination". He hates admitting that he is wrong about anything to her, as it would give her bragging rights. Nevertheless, he seems to have taken to her like a child to his mother. Due to his small body, he is usually found being held like an infant by her, showing that they are at least close.

On occasion, King puts into question Eda's methods and ethics. He has on occasion voiced his concerns about Eda's treatment of Luz. In "I Was a Teenage Abomination" he calls Eda out on her teaching methods, claiming that she could very easily lose Luz if she doesn't shape up. In "Enchanting Grom Fright" he expresses genuine concern that Eda acted a bit too hard on Luz for proposing to become Grom Queen.

In "Eda's Requiem", King hints at a surprise for Eda, and he later reveals at the end of the Gland Prix that he is legally changing his name to King Clawthorne after her, causing Eda (and Luz) to burst into tears, as she had initially feared he was planning to leave her once he found his father.

Hooty

Follies at the Coven Day Parade - 496

King and Hooty working together to pilot a Belos effigy in "Follies at the Coven Day Parade".

Much like Eda and most others who have met Hooty, King is distant towards him, although with a much more cruel approach. He openly criticizes and insults Hooty whenever the opportunity presents itself, such as calling him desperate just for wanting to hang out. King finds Hooty's voice to be annoying and is disgusted at the thought of having to wash him whenever he rolls in the mud. Despite his bad attitude towards him, King relies on Hooty for shelter and understands that he maintains the house's utilities. Their relationship gets better in "Adventures in the Elements" after King's animated plush toys turn on him, thus forcing King into befriending Hooty for assistance.

In "Knock, Knock, Knockin' on Hooty's Door", Hooty tries to help King figure out what type of demon he is. Later, King becomes upset when Hooty can't give an accurate answer and simply tells him to accept him as he is; that the real answer is inside his heart. He becomes increasingly frustrated, becoming angry about his dad's absence, but does not direct his anger at Hooty. King then shouts in anger, inadvertently unlocking his voice power, which can create a force field. However, Hooty is too upset to notice that, and pulls away in tears, not hearing King calling after him.

Amity Blight

Eclipse Lake - 849

Amity becomes relieved after finally understanding Luz's messages with King's help in "Eclipse Lake".

In "Covention", King develops a grudge against Amity after she crushes his cupcake on purpose, demanding that Luz avenge both him and his treat. At the subsequent Witch's Duel, he attempts to coerce a fan of Amity to cheer for Luz instead, only to accidentally fall into the arena and expose Eda's deception.

In "Eclipse Lake", King appears to be more accepting towards Amity since she started dating Luz, and goes on a trip together with her and Eda in order to find the Titan's Blood. He later helps her understand the messages Luz had been sending her, although he does become jealous when Luz hugs her before him upon their return home, but later "regret" this when Luz hugs him.

Gus Porter

King and Gus S1 EP16

Gus consoling King in "Enchanting Grom Fright".

King does not have much interaction with Gus until "Really Small Problems", where it is shown that he is spiteful over the fact that Luz pays less attention to him because of Gus and Willow. Gus tries to baby King like a pet, much to his annoyance. While struggling to break free, a bottle given to King by a psychic earlier slips out from his pouch and drops to the ground. Some liquid from the bottle splashes onto Gus and Willow, making them smaller. Gus is upset at this, and becomes unhappy with King. However, after seeing King risking his life to save him, Willow and Luz, Gus forgives him and accepts the broken piece of bracelet that King gives him and Willow.

In "Enchanting Grom Fright", King and Gus' relationship improves when King appears as a co-emcee with him on Grom Night. Gus shows genuine concern towards King after he runs away in the middle of the event from stage fright, and gives advice to King afterwards to help him with speaking in front of crowds. He continues to show support for King after he faces his fear.

In "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", it is shown that King helped Gus record a video greeting message on his answering machine. Gus seems to be the closest to King from the rest of Luz's friends.

The Collector

For the Future - 067

The Collector celebrating his freedom with King.

King's first interactions with the Collector are through a psychic link formed when King interacts with the Titan Trappers' broken tablet.[6] In his dreams, he catches glimpses of the Collector and hears his voice. King's first awake interaction with the Collector occurs during the Day of Unity. King's sole intention when freeing the Collector is to stop the Draining Spell, but afterwards, King is obliged to play "Owl House" with him. To do so, King tells him about his adventures with Luz and Eda, while the Collector insists on playing out these stories using the Boiling Isles residents as puppets in their game of make-believe. King inspires trust in the Collector, and acts as his caretaker and playmate, only using his influence as much as he dares to prevent the Collector from hurting or killing people, to protect Eda from being turned into a puppet, and to free Lilith. While King fears the Collector and sees them as a threat that needs to be dealt with, King comes to view them as a lonely child and wants to get them to see the error of their ways rather than trap them again.

King's intuition about the Collector's true nature turns out to be correct after Luz encourages the child to vent his insecurities and sadness about being exploited for personal gain by practically everyone he has ever known. King feels bad about his predicament, and helps Luz and Eda show the Collector how the three of them bonded. When Luz is killed by Belos, a grief-stricken King protects the Collector from Belos's second attempt in destroying him, and briefly stops his attack when a remorseful Collector apologizes for everything. After Luz gets revived and they manage to stop Belos for good, King gifts the Collector his precious Francois when the kid decides to depart to the stars, giving him a hug and telling him that he hopes to see him again, finally considering the Collector a real friend.

Steve

King and Steve met after Steve quit the Emperor's Coven, they started to bond and form a friendship after Steve offered him a ride and did some stuff together. Steve even gave King advice on how people want and how they can change over time. He stops Lilith and Hooty from hurting him.

Powers and abilities

  • Titan magic: As a titan, King possesses immense magical potential. Despite King not having fully demonstrated this in the series, titans are powerful enough to cancel out magic as powerful as that of collectors. Like his father, he can generate magic. While he can't cast spells with spell circles as could a witch or biped demon, his magic instead manifests through glyphs.
    • Glyph creation: King is able to create his own glyphs. His magic is able to manifest through these glyphs, as did the Titan's.
      • Barrier projection: When Belos tries to attack the Collector, King creates a spherical barrier of his own glyphs to protect the both of them, even when he himself would not yet discover his glyphs and their abilities until years later.
    • Sonic shout: King has the ability to break the sound barrier with his own screams, which can generate expanding rings or arcs that can damage or destroy anything they come into contact with. He can harness this blast all around his body, and distances directly in front of him for at least several meters away. The force of this blast can easily shatter glass, cause small earthquakes, and even set things on fire.
      • Echolocation: Using this ability, King is shown to be able to echolocate, as demonstrated when he tried to find Eclipse Lake when he was at the Knee.
  • Heightened sense of smell: King is able to discern subtle scents, as shown in "Witches Before Wizards", where he sniffs out Luz's scent and follows it to track down her location.
  • Empowered form: Under intense emotions, King can enter a more bestial form that is slightly larger than his normal state, showing glowing purple eyes, larger and sharpened teeth, and heightened magical ability. King assumes this form after witnessing Luz's apparent death.

King is voiced by Alex Hirsch, who also voices Hooty. In his squeak of rage and his youth, he is voiced by Dana Terrace.

Debut

King debuted in the series premiere, "A Lying Witch and a Warden," and in Owl Pellets, he made a cameo in "Welcome to Hexside," but his official debut was in "Paint Scare!"

Trivia

  • As seen in "Coven Lovin Soap Opera", King is strong enough to throw the TV magic ball up with enough force to break through to the second floor.
  • King's skull is an irremovable part of his body. However, when raised the question by the series' line producer, Dana Terrace once made a hypothetical sketch of what he would look like if it were removed, considered by her to be "fairly canon".[7][8]
  • King's design bears strong resemblance to the Cubone Pokémon, specifically his posture, height, and the shape of his skull.
  • King exclaims, "WEH!" or, "WAH!" in nearly every episode. After "Knock, Knock, Knockin' on Hooty's Door", in necessary situations, he often used this to invoke his sonic scream.
  • In "Sense and Insensitivity", King says he considers his name as "more of a rank", yet in "Echoes of the Past", it is revealed that King is in fact the true name given to him by Eda.
  • In "Enchanting Grom Fright", it is revealed that King has stage fright.
  • King is, at times, a heavy sleeper, becoming ragdoll-like and "dangly" when in a deep sleep. According to Eda, he apparently falls asleep quickly when "weightless"; i. e. suspended via a baby sling.[9]
