Lady Claire is the brave brother of Lord Arnaut, a French commander. Claire is tough and sneaky; she has been fighting the English all her life. Claire speaks French but she knows English well and is always ancious to be a part of the action. She is often used as a spy and looks just like a normal villager.
She rides with her brother Arnaut (the French leader) but leaves often to go on various adventures. During one of these escapes Claire hides with a young man from the future, Audre Marek (her future husband). Lady Claire is very observant and seems very innocent (Marek knows better).
