I watched Cardcaptor Sakura, xxxHolic and Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle a long time ago, but I still don't understand the relationship between them.

I don't understand this: http://tsubasa.wikia.com/wiki/Crossover_Universe, who is whose father, who is who in an alternate universe, etc.

Can anyone give a character tree with details?

    Temptd to vtc too broad... that's helluva complicated multiverse... – Vogel612 Nov 27 '14 at 23:23
  • this might be of some relevance, through reading up on Sakura slightly i read the one in Tsubasa is actually a clone Clow Reed created but i havn't look to deep into it (cause i want to keep hope that Sakura's "sweetheart" Yūko mentions that she's living with is Tomoyo) – Memor-X Nov 30 '14 at 22:02
  • @Vogel612 there are some images one can find showing all the character relationships like one for the Nasuverse, however weather one exists or not for CLAMP is another thing. if not then one could just focus on the characters who appear multiple times in different series, ie. Clow Reed and Yūko – Memor-X Nov 30 '14 at 22:05

I can offer some details on Xxxholic, as I'm more familiar with that one than others, though I've also read all of Cardcaptor Sakura and the majority of Tsubasa REservoir Chronicle.

Spoilers ahead if you haven't read CCS, TRC or Xxxholic

Clow, who is deceased at the time of TRC and Xxxholic, is an ancestor of Sakura's (with no indication of how far back that is). Clow is sort of reincarnated in two characters in CCS, one of whom is Eriol (little kid with glasses who looks like a chibi Clow). The "original" Sakura and Syaoran, from CCS, grew up and married and apparently felt their son (I haven't seen any conclusive name, but he's a boy) was in danger, so they split him into "clones" (could be a bad translation) and sent each into different universes. Two that I know of are named Syaoran, and both show up in TRC. Watanuki from Xxxholic is a third. I don't know of any more, but I haven't read the entire CLAMPiverse and they're still writing. I can't draw a family tree here but if it were tipped on its side:

(unknown generations)
     Sakura = Syaoran
            |                   |
       Watanuki          "Other Syaorans"     

It's highly unlikely Clow and Yuuko had a child together. I get the impression she's quite old (her clothing, pipe and furnishings suggest late 19th century at the latest) but she seems not nearly as old and certainly not as powerful as Clow. Yuuko and Clow made Mokona (both of them) foreseeing they'd be needed for communication between Yuuko and the TSC main characters.

I hope this helps a bit.
