Klug is a male denizen of Primp Town. He is known to be stuck up and rude, and is commonly perceived as a geek, nerd, or a "goody two shoes". The book he is always seen carrying is actually from the town library, and he continues to keep it through repeated renewal much to the librarian's chagrin. He idolizes Lemres, and hopes that one day his own magic will be recognized as powerful as Lemres's. His strong admiration for Lemres causes him to be on bad blood with Feli, who believes she is fated to be with Lemres.

Klug has green eyes and wears a pair of round glasses in every game along with a graduation cap, a pink pocketwatch around his neck, and a light blue bowtie. His hair is dark brown and styled in a bowl-cut. In all games he carries the Record of Sealing in his hands.
Klug's outfit changes from game to game, though his outfits are all purple in color.
Klug is consistently described by the games as a somewhat obnoxious, bespectacled honors student who has a fascination with dark magic. He cares greatly about his ego and his public image as he wants to be seen as more mature and intelligent by his peers and given positive recognition by Lemres. He's prone to overestimating his own knowledge, as seen in Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary when he's unable to give Sig a definitive answer as to how his hand became red.
He's referred to as a "Mr. Goody Two-Shoes" by Raffina in Puyo Puyo Fever, and for good reason as he's the most studious in the Primp Magic School. Though he is snobbish, prideful, rude, and has a tendency to overestimate his own abilities. Klug is very studious and considers himself to be a genius, often saying that he is the "Great Future Dark Mage". He is, however, also easily flustered, not taking comebacks to his insults well, and is quick to kiss up to authorities like Ms. Accord or his idol, Lemres.
Despite his reputation as an honors student and a stickler for rules, he has demonstrated some behavior in the past to contradict that persona, including: not paying attention in class to research into the 3 unsealing items for the Record of Sealing, writing about his own plans into the class journal rather than the ongoings at the school, and continuously renewing the Record of Sealing from the Primp Town Library so he can keep it in his possession.
Besides that, he's also a bit of a coward and not quick to admit his mistakes due to his pride. Klug is also a hasty decision maker, doing anything that he believes will gain him more magical prowess, abilities, or approval from his friends or from Lemres.
His character file in Puyo Puyo Fever 2 mentions that he's good at card games, his favorite thing to do is to study magic, and he dislikes self-important people.
Klug's magic stems largely from Latin astronomical terms, though his spells change from game to game. His spells include Nebula, Ignis, Lacteus Orbis, Nebula Macula, Vis Attrahendi/Gravity Strike, Crinis, Prominence, Ursa Major, Labores Solis, Fossa/Crater, Tectonic, Stella Inerrans/Starlight, and Defectio Lunae/Lunar Eclipse. In the English version of Puyo Puyo Tetris, Klug speaks only English.
Aside from his magical abilities, he is intelligent and studious.
- Ms. Accord is Klug's teacher at the Primp Magic School. She seems to appreciate his ambition, but says that Klug's mischievousness and schemes are inconvenient and concerning.
- Klug is classmates with Amitie as seen in the first Fever! games; despite her kindness, Klug does not refuse to poke fun at her ditzy personality or her lack of skill with magic. Though, most of his biting remarks tend to go over Amitie's head, or she'll frequently misinterpret his insults to mean something else entirely.
- Akuma serves as Primp Town's librarian and as such, is annoyed with Klug for keeping the Record of Sealing in his possession through repeated renewal. Klug thinks he's simply a nag, but Akuma has shown that he is concerned about Klug's obsession with the book as well as his fascination with dark magic.
- Klug admiring Lemres naturally makes him a target for Feli. Feli naturally hates him for trying to be like Lemres and attempting to get close to Lemres, she sees his actions as a threat to her own affections for Lemres. Klug in response tends to be terrified of or aggressive towards Feli because of this.
- Klug admires Lemres, with his ultimate goal to be a powerful and famous wizard just like him. However this admiration for Lemres sometimes borders on obsession, to the point where Klug apparently dreams about Lemres, as revealed in flavor text for Puyo Puyo!! Quest. It's unknown if there is deeper meaning to Klug's interest with Lemres. Notably, Klug talking to Lemres is one of the rare cases where Klug isn't as rude as he normally is, likely because he sees Lemres as being above him and deserving of respect.
- While Lidelle and Klug's relationship isn't expanded upon greatly, it seems that they are at least on somewhat friendly terms. As he entrusts her to deliver a letter inviting Amitie to the Arca Ruins in Puyo Puyo Fever 2. Lidelle also cared enough about Klug's desire for Amitie to come meet him to challenge her to a Puyo battle immediately after.
- She is also the one who persuaded him to come back home in Puyo Puyo Chronicle, granted this was less because of her concerns and more because he didn't want to lose his status as an honors students.
- Klug was used as a test subject for Maguro's beauty beams in Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary. He was also investigating the magic of Maguro's kendama in Amitie and the Girl of Love.
- Klug is friendly rivals with Raffina and tends to be even more cutting with her due to their prideful personalities. He tends to look down upon Raffina's lack of magical powers and her brutish physical strength, much like how Raffina pokes fun at him for being full of hot air. She seems to think of him as an annoying and stuck up bookworm and he thinks of her as a brute with no brains.
- This rivalry seems to extend outside of the classroom, as he's mentioned sending chain mail to Raffina in Puyo Puyo Fever 2 in an attempt to rile her up.
- Klug is classmates, and most likely, friends with Sig. Though he does not understand the latter's spaced-out personality and fascination with bugs, and has a tendency to make fun of him as he does towards everyone. He also tends to be rather indignant about the nickname "Glasses" that Sig has bestowed upon him.
- He isn't above helping him on occasion though, as in Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary he does give Amitie and Sig his own theory about Sig's left hand, but isn't able to say anything concrete. He does bring up a possible connection between Sig and the Record of Sealing, but dismisses his own theory.
- However, he has shown his caring side for Sig such as at the end of Sig's Secret, being concerned about his well-being. As well as in Schezo's additional story in Puyo Puyo Tetris where he attempts to get Schezo to stop following Sig. Of course, the latter occurs in a dream and might not be wholly accurate to Klug's personality.
- The Demon in the Record of Sealing
- Strange Klug is Klug when possessed by the demon sealed within the Record of Sealing. While Klug claims to have unsealed the demon and gotten possessed by it on purpose for research purposes in Puyo Puyo Fever 2, he has no memory of being possessed during the following appearances of Strange Klug in Puyo Puyo!! Quest and audio dramas when it appears.
- While they never interact face to face, Klug seems to be aware of the demon's existence and the similarity of its power to Sig's in Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary. Klug also claims that he and the book are "as one" in Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary, though it is unknown if he is referring to the power that the book gives him or the demon within the book.
- In Schezo's additional story in Puyo Puyo Tetris, Klug mentions that his book came alive and started chattering when he crossed paths with Sig. In the Japanese, the book directly insults Klug and calls him a "wimpy four-eyes". Though as this sequence is a dream, it is unknown if the sealed demon can actually communicate directly to Klug under normal circumstances.
- In Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, Lemres concludes that the demon's power also repels Marle's influence from Klug, though Klug doesn't fully understand why or how his book would do something like that.
In Puyo Puyo Fever Klug is found in the Crystal Cave, in which he boasts to Amitie or Raffina about how he has located Ms. Accord's flying cane and just needs to go collect it, he offers to tell them, and presumably does so when he is defeated.
In Puyo Puyo Fever 2, Klug finds the three items listed in the Record of Sealing: the Lantern of Star, the Sun Bookmark, and the Stone of Moon, and uses them to unleash the book's full power, and transforming into Strange Klug after being possessed by the demon that is sealed within it. He is fought in his normal, unpossessed state by Amitie in the HaraHara course, Raffina in the HaraHara course, and Sig in the RunRun course.
In Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary, Klug is competing in the tournament along with the other characters in hopes of granting his own wish. He encounters Lidelle, Dongurigaeru, Amitie, Suketoudara, Yu & Rei, Sig, Feli, and Rulue during the tournament. Once he wins, he makes his wish: a wish that his success as a wizard is published as a 16-page spread in his favorite magazine, Monthly Kuromage. Ms. Accord and Popoi comment that his wish is awfully specific, and that it'll come true when he's successful. After he leaves, Popoi makes a snide remark that Klug probably should've wished for success in the first place.
In Puyo Puyo 7, a space warp floods Ringo's school with Puyos, as well as teleporting many characters from their world, including Klug. At the end of Act 2, Ringo, Amitie and Lemres run into Klug. Klug offers to explain how to close the space warp, but only after a puyo match. Beating him at a match of Puyo Puyo makes him explain how to close the space warp, though he is simply repeating what Arle had said to him.
Klug encounters Witch, and after defeating her, drinks a potion that has significant after effects on him, including mood swings. He is cured of this state at the end of his story by Ms. Accord.
Klug makes a minor appearance in Puyo Puyo Tetris during Act 4. He is being pursued by Feli, who is still influenced by the dimensions merging. After she's brought back to her senses, Klug immediately complains about her hostile behavior and the two bicker as usual, requiring Lemres to stay behind and keep an eye on them as the rest of the group continues on.
He appears again in Schezo's dream during Chapter 9, during this story he's being tormented by his book after Sig ran past him. After Schezo helps him to calm the voice inside the book, Klug mentions that Sig had been trying to get away from Schezo and asked why he was bothering him.
Klug is a subquest character in Puyo Puyo Chronicle. He is found in the town of Retty while investigating the mysterious anomalies going on throughout the land. He hopes to solve the anomaly occurring in Retty and gain prestige in that town and beyond. He explains his plans to the others and refuses to come along with them at first, but is eventually persuaded to come along once Lidelle brings up that she was hoping he'd come along so that they can all go back home together and return to school. Klug immediately worries about his status as an honors student being revoked if he's absent for too long, so he decides to tag along with the group and joins the party.
- Klug is one of 3 characters with a unique henshin animation in Puyo Puyo 7. However, this is merely due to using recycled art, rather than drawing new art to fit the animation in question. This makes the animation appear more like the earlier Puyo Puyo Fever animations, since there are no moving parts.
- His birthday is September 29th, the same day as Onion Pixy's.
- His name in German means clever.
- The name "Klug" is known to be used in real life, albeit as a surname.
- He appears to be a spiritual successor to Schezo Wegey from the original Puyo Puyo series as the two have similar bases in dark magic and awkward personalities.
- Alternate Voice notes:
- In Puyo Puyo Tetris, in both languages, he speaks in more calm manner.
- In Puyo Puyo Chronicle, he sounds grumpy, as if he is talking to certain characters.
- In Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, in both languages, his voice becomes childlike, reminiscent of his Mini Puyo Fever voice from Puyo Puyo 7, but with a softer tone. In Japanese, he shares this motif with his fellow magic school students Amitie, Sig, Raffina and Lidelle.
