"People like you don't think about it. And people like us? It's all we ever get to think about: where our kid brothers went."

Claudio Unkrich is a main character in YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG. You first formally meet him in Chapter 3 along with his sister, Chondra. He's determined to find his missing brother, Aaron, who disappeared in 1985. He frequently browses the ONISM forums to help other people with missing persons cases.

Personality[edit | edit source]

A practitioner of aikido, and a master of the hacky sack.

Claudio has a very passionate mindset. He excitedly goes on spiels about his favorite anime, Mahou Shoujo Haru No Shimai, whenever he gets the chance. Even in the case of his missing brother, Aaron, Claudio still remains hopeful that he will be found one day. He relates to Rory, knowing what it's like to lose a sibling. Because of the pain he feels about his brother, he goes on ONISM1999 to help investigate other missing persons cases, like Semi Pak.

Mahou Shoujo Haru No Shimai premiered in 1985, the same year Aaron went missing. It's possible that Claudio obsesses over it so much because it reminds him of Aaron.

Story[edit | edit source]

YIIK[edit | edit source]

In 1985, Claudio's young brother Aaron went missing. Claudio wasn't able to fully move on from his disappearance, believing he is still out there somewhere and that he can find him. He starts browsing the ONISM forums to help investigate the disappearances of other people, further fueling his obsession with finding Aaron.

Despite the tragic loss of his brother, his life still moved on. At the age of 19, Claudio opened up the first Record Stop (presumably at Flag Town) using the inherintence he got from his grandfather. Eventually he opened up more and more locations across New Jersey.

Alex, on the quest to find the Mystical Ultima LP Legend, stops by Flag Town's Record Stop, where Claudio was working. Claudio, recognizing the LP from a post on ONISM, ONISM Logo realizes Alex is an ONISM user and agrees to help him to go find it. Passing through a treacherous obstacle course, the group arrives at the home of family friend Mark.....


I.V[edit | edit source]

Not much is known about Claudio in I.V. He fights Daddy and Hot Ma'ma in the intro to the game.

Combat[edit | edit source]

Claudio only has two abilities: Beat Down, and Bushido.

Beat Down[edit | edit source]

PP: 2

There is a bug where holding down the button for an extended period of time will cause the sword to unsheathe anyways. You can abuse it to always guarantee a hit.

Bushido[edit | edit source]

Claudio using Bushido on legendary Samurai Turtle Edgar Degas.

PP: 4

Bushido, also known as Katana Strike, is a long string of inputs that must be done in a short timeframe. The inputs are not random, it's a consistent pattern. This means you don't have to wait for the arrow prompts, as long as you know the pattern you can input it very quickl.. You can intentionally fail at any point to select a move and stop the minigame.

The time you're given to complete the minigame is dependent on the weapon you choose. Each weapon has a hidden weight stat, the lower the weight, the more time you're given for Bushido. You're always given at least 10 seconds minimum.

1000 Slashes

This move can stun the enemy.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
