Clay Terran was an astronaut and a friend of Apollo Justice.
- Main article: The Cosmic Turnabout
In middle school, Terran was crying alone after learning his mother had died. He was approached by his classmate Apollo Justice, who knew the pain of having no mother. Justice encouraged Terran to stand tall and yell, "I'm Clay Terran and I'm fine!" Soon, the two became very close friends, and shared their dreams with each other, with Terran wanting to become an astronaut and Justice wanting to be a lawyer. Terran and Justice occasionally visited the GYAXA station, and met Solomon Starbuck, whom Terran began to look up to as a mentor.
Terran was carrying his fellow astronaut friend Solomon Starbuck when there were problems in the rocket launch they were in. After being exhausted and finally got into a safe place, he rested as he couldn't carry Starbuck anymore. The next thing shown is that someone stabbed him in the chest. It was revealed later that the Phantom was the one who masterminded this to get rid of evidence. It is later revealed that he helped Yuri Cosmos stage the HAT-2 launch and drugged Starbuck for his mentor's own safety.
Clay is described by Justice and Starbuck as a great friend, who always cheered them up in a time of need.
- His full Japanese name means "blue earth".
- His Westernized surname, Terran, is derived from "Terra", the Roman Goddess of the Earth; in English, "terran" is an adjective describing anything of the earth. Clay is an element from the earth.
