Cleo Zlatko
This page is comprised of Cleo Zlatko's relationships with various other characters she interacts with.


Beacon Academy

Cleo is a first year student at Beacon Academy.


Cleo is the leader of Team CBLT. While she was the youngest member, her team quickly gained respect for her.

Signal Academy

Zlatko family

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


Alyson Zlatko

Cleo has a very strained relationship with her mother, as a famous Huntress, Alyson was always out of the house literally making Cameron raise Cleo. Cleo doesn'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 raised Cleo since she was born. When Cleo turned thirteen, Cameron gave Cleo the last of the Zlatko family weapons, Chrysós Drákos, and began to train her before she went off to Signal Academy.
