Claire Olivia Grant
Tall and lean, with some muscle
A bit below average
Pale and freckles
Long and straight, usually in a braid or ponytail
Burn scarring on her hands and forearms from the fire.
Claire is bubbly and sweet, with a passion for running. She's determined and not a fan of being ordered around, and directly disobeys her parents to see her estranged brother. She isn't the best at picking up social cues, however, and often make others uncomfortable by not knowing what topics aren't ones they want to talk about.
To succeed and make her family proud
Cross-country and track, learning French, and pursuing the sciences.
Bad at paying attention, doesn't take much seriously, doesn't always know when to stop/what people are comfortable with.
Claire and her brother Victor used to be close, despite their considerable age difference. Her mother was fairly withdrawn and distant, and her father prone to yelling and occasionally violence. Victor bore the brunt of it, however, and would sneak Claire off to stay at a friend's house if it got too rough. Claire also had Victor's passion for the sciences, and aided him in a science experiment that resulted in a lab fire. Claire's hands were badly injured in it, and Victor was estranged and disowned. She sneaks around to meet with him so they can stay in touch.
