Clara lived in a village near the Hud with her husband and her two daughters, Diana and Madeline.
Around the Spring of 315 NE, while her husband and her daughter Diana were away, one of the Guard's operatives in the Lakelands was captured and tortured for information, ultimately giving up the name of their village. The King of the Lakelands, Orrec Cygnet, punished the rebellious villagers personally by raising the shores of the Hud, a nearby bay, and pulled the water to flood the village and wipe it from the face of his kingdom. Clara and her other daughter, Madeline, were killed in this incident, known as the Drowning of the Northlands.
In a photograph on her husband's office, Clara appears as a tall, well-boned, blonde woman, posing with a stern but open expression.
- Diana named her daughter in honor of her.
