ND: Claude makes a meaningful statement about his name in Cindered Shadows, is it a pseudonym?

Kusakihara: Claude’s real name is as you might expect, a pseudonym… his real name is “Khalid”. I wanted to include it somewhere [in the game]. I haven’t had much opportunity, and have come this far (laughs). Actually there was a scene about halfway in where Nader calls him by the name “Khalid”, but it was cut as we couldn’t find a good fit for it.
