He did not want to get Carcino involved in the war with Grado, and, as the most powerful and influential member of the Council, managed to keep Carcino out of the fray. However, the councilman Pablo used his wealth to corrupt his fellow councilmen into agreeing with him, and soon they would overrule Klimt's decision and aid Grado's forces with Carcino's army. When Klimt refused and tried to stop them, Pablo attempted to assassinate him. Luckily, Eirika and her forces intervene, and the assassination attempt failed.
- As Klimt is unused, he has no personal bases or weapon ranks in game data, although he still has generic growths (which he shares with Dara and the unnamed Pegasus Messenger).
