Well, my sister insisted that I post a topic like this, so here it is.

We (or maybe just me) got hooked on NiGHTS through JoD...and the first time my sister saw the original NiD, she said that Claris gave her nightmares. (ironic?) I must agree, at some points it looks like she has no nose, but what do you think?

UPDATE: Here's a quote from my sister just now...

Yeah. Claris does give me nightmares, not only because in some ways, it looks like she has no nose but, it looks like she has down syndrome. Pretty creepy....


So...anyone agree? Disagree?

Down syndrome? O___o Whut? As for the nose thing, that's probably because she and Elliot were more anime/manga influenced.

Anyway, my first impressions of Claris before playing the game was that she seemed cute and friendly. After getting the game my impression was still the same... aside from her singing voice. I've said this before, but that voice is better for a pian than a teenager.

Exactly what I said.

Could SEGA have used the same voice for both? LOL just a thought :D

When I first saw her, I thought that she was pretty cool. She definitely looked the part. And I have to agree, NiD is more anime/manga based than JoD was. That's why the characters look a lot different in each game.

When I first saw her all I thought, "Oh so that's Claris... she's kinda pretty." Saying that due to seeing a picture of her paired with NiGHTS and having never seen her before.

Random: I'd like to point out that in her christmas attire she looks like Amy Rose influenced and in regular, she reminds me of Ulala from Space Channel 5. *Hinthint Orange clothes, pink hair hinthint*

More accurately, Amy Rose would have to be influenced by Claris' Christmas attire, since Amy was changed a lot from her old design. If there was any influence at all.

I'd say the only thing that ever really bugged me was the freakishly long arms those kids had stuck on them. They looked like apes. But no specific problem with Claris or Elliot. Maybe that she looks like a Gumby character, with that goofy smile of hers. :lol:

Ok, Claris is cool. I'm not a fan of JoD, but NiD I love! Claris is my fave out of the two.
Amy Rose, but not as obnoxious.

I like both Claris and Elliot equally. They're both cool and unique in their own ways.

And I have to agree, NiD is more anime/manga based than JoD was.

They shoulda kept it that way!!

Erm....no. XD

Good point! I did notice Amy Rose's change, and it did look a little familiar! Question answered!

Yes they should have. Lord knows they should have.

Erm....no. XD

I only asked because I was thinking she didn't understand graphical limitations. Not to say their appearances weren't planned like that or anything.

Claris was my favorite character from the beginning, but the outfit designs for both her and Elliot bugged me. It took me the longest time to make sense of them o_0 I thought they had a Back to the Future thing going on where all the kids wore their pockets inside out.

My first impression of Claris was "You pixely mass of unstable 3-D objects! You're a %$£! and nobody loves you!" Then I went to play as Elliot. But afterwards, I came back to Claris and thought, "You know, I was kind of mean. I think I'll try making it up to her." So, I played as Claris and all was well in the world of NiGHTS into Dreams. UNTIL I reached Mystic Forest, at which point I was beginning to stray back to my original train of thought...

I don't know, when I first saw Claris I imagined her having the personality of a CLAMP heroine (bubbly, brave, and cute). Don't really know where the idea came from though...
