"Here, I'll give you a choice. You can pick how I kill you, fair? I myself am a sucker for explosions or beheadings. But if you just wanna be shot in the face, I have no problems with that either. Or you could always be a gentleman and let me pick. I love a chivalrous man."

Origin: Claire was born as a Meta-Human with physical and mental abilities far beyond normal humans, and constantly flaunted this. Growing up in the bad side of Grand Haven, she used her abilities to rob various criminals and would give the money back to her family and friends. Eventually coming to love the thrill of theft, she did it constantly. However, she was eventually caught and forced to work for a crimeboss named Lance Reigner. Being trained by other highly skilled mercenaries, she became his deadliest enforcer. Eventually she repaid her debt to Lance and became a freelance mercenary, coming to realize she loved her new job.

Currently: One of the anonymous enemies of the Faceless Army has hired Claire to kill Allan Creed. She chose this job not just for the good pay, but because Allan is the highest ranked assassin in the world at the moment, and killing him would greatly increase her own merit.


Claire is the cousin of Leroy Rooker, but claims that she never sends him a Christmas card.

Claire really likes explosions.

She loves rock and metal music, with her favorite song being Wasting My Hate by Metallica

Claire has tried turning over a new leaf various times, but always goes back to being a freelance mercenary.

The Deathwish suit is used by Claire to scare people, and throw them off guard, as they expect a male opponent.

Claire is an avid player of World of Warcraft.

She often makes references to movies she likes, especially loving to reference Gunnery Sergeant Hartman from Full Metal Jacket.

Claire's durability is insane, with her being able to survive two nuclear blasts at the exact same time without a scratch.

Tyko Lars taught her how to speak Latin.
