Zlatko family

Cleo is a member of the Zlatko family, though she doesn't like to announce it as her family is well known through out the Renmant.


Alyson Zlatko

Cleo has a very strained relationship with her mother, as a famous Huntress, Alyson was almost always out of the house making Cameron to have to watch Cleo. Cleo didn't even know who her mother, all she knew was that Alyson was a famous Huntress, which sadly, put a lot of pressure on her because people expect her to follow in her mother's footsteps - which Cleo doesn't want to do.

Cameron Zlatko

Compared with her mother, Cleo has a much better relationship and bond with her uncle. Cleo has a more father-daughter bond with Cameron more son than an uncle-niece, especially since Cameron pretty much raised Cleo since she was born.

When Cleo turned thirteen, Cameron gave Cleo the last of the Zlatko family weapons, Phoenix Soul, and began to train her before she went off to Signal Academy.

Ebony Zlatko

Cleo has a strong mother-daughter bond with her aunt, Ebony. Cleo sees Ebony as her mother, not Alyson since she was never there for her. 

Love interest

Garnet Tyler

Garnet is Cleo's teammate and also her love interest. While any sort of feelings at the moment is only in friendship, Cleo is close with Garnet. Not only as a friend and team leader, but also as a tutor.


Lyla Lapis

Despite being the only girl on CBLT, Cleo doesn't even have a good relationship with Lyla. Due to Cleo's closed her personality, she hasn't really opened up to Lyla, since Cleo finds her a bit...too hyper for her liking. But she does see Lyla as a valued team member.
