Clow Reed (クローリード) is a fictional character created by CLAMP that appears in Cardcaptor Sakura, xxxHolic, and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. He is known as the greatest magician of all time as he draws his magic from his half-European, half-Chinese heritage. He is the creator of the Clow Cards and their guardians: Cerberus and Yue. Sakura and Touya are Reed's descendants, since their biological father is half of Reed's reincarnation, as is as Syaoran, who is a descendant of the original Clow Reed.
His first appearance was in episode 46 of the anime.
When Syaoran turned back time, Clow went to fill the void that was created by living in the Kingdom of Clow in order to guide and protect Syaoran and Sakura. When Syoaran and Sakura made the decision to be reborn, Clow gave his power and his life to pay Syaoran's price, while Yuko paid for Sakura.
It has been suggested that Clow had a romantic relationship with Yuuko, the Time Space witch from xxxHOLiC, though it has never been made explicit. When Yuko was dying, Clow just had the thought: "I want her to open her eyes one more time." The strength of this wish coupled with the strength of his power caused Yuuko's timeline to completely stop, allowing her to live. From then on, Clow deeply regretted the power of his magic.
