Background and History Edit
Claire moved to Morganville to attend Texas Praire University. TPU, as it is known by the students, isn't a very good school as a whole, with most students dropping out after their first year, second year max. Having graduated high school very early due to her remarkable intelligence and affinity for all things science, Claire was forced to attend by her parents, who did not want her to attend a big university so young. Her dream has been to attend MIT -- which she still plans to do.
Physical Description EditClaire is described as being small and fragile, also young-looking, with an intelligent face and trademark smile. She has brown eyes as well as brown hair that is slightly curled and has red dyed tips.
In her freshman year at TPU, Claire was severely bullied by the mean girls of the school -- Monica Morrell and her cronies, Jennifer and Gina. After being pushed down the stairs in the dorms, Claire decides to seek alternative housing, leading her to the ad searching for a fourth roommate at the Glass House. After some controversy concerning her age and the dangers she could face in Morganville, Claire is allowed to stay by Michael, the 18 year old owner of the house and his two roommates, Shane and Eve.
In Feast of Fools, Myrnin dresses her as Harlequin of Commedia dell'arte.

Claire means "clear, illuminated" in French.
In the web series adaptation of the novels, "Morganville," she is portrayed by Lindsay Seidel.
In the short story All Hallows, Miranda stated, "One of us is going to be a vampire." Eve replied that one already is (meaning Michael). This was followed by the rather ominous line, "Except that Miranda never forgot a thing like that." This heavily implies that Claire will become a vampire because Amelie, Myrnin, and possibly even Oliver have expressed desires to have her turned. She has come extremely close twice, but was stopped on both occasions:
- When Myrnin brought her back in Last Breath, she had a choice of becoming a vampire or remaining human. She would have chosen to turn, but Myrnin told her she would have to give up her relationship with Shane, which made her choose to remain human.
- In Black Dawn, Amelie wanted to turn Claire, regardless of Claire's feelings, but was stopped by Jason's interruption.
