Events of Watch DogsEdit
Clara is a member of the DedSec group. Clara is hired as a hacker by Aiden to help track down the people responsible for Lena's death. At this time, she conceals her identity and talks to him through voice changing software, and uses her DedSec alias, BadBoy17.
She then continues to help him throughout the course of the game after meeting Aiden in person to give him the DedSec System Hacks sent to his smartphone.
It is later revealed by Defalt that she was hired to track down Aiden and Damien after the Merlaut job in order to place a hit on them. Aiden demanded to know who hired her, to which Clara denies any knowledge. This leads to Aiden shoving Clara away, even as she tries to apologize.
After getting Nicole and Jackson out of town, and after killing Dermot "Lucky" Quinn, Aiden learns from Damien that Clara had tried to trade herself in for Nicole. Aiden realizes that Quinn intends to have her eliminated, and heads to the cemetery, where Clara is visiting Lena's grave to place flowers there. Just then, hitmen from the Chicago South Club locate her at the graveyard. Alerted by T-Bone, Aiden races to her, but is too late to save her from being shot to death. After dispatching the hitmen, Aiden gives Clara a moment of silence before taking her phone. He listens to Clara's last voicemail to him. In it, she talks about first seeing Aiden and Jackson playing chess in the park, after Lena's funeral; and explains her reasons for helping him "heal" from Lena's death. The message ends with Clara saying that if they cannot talk when "this is all over", she can "at least disappear. That's something I'm good at."
- "Clara is seductive. She’s dangerous. She’s the trapdoor spider you never saw living right under you. She can weave her way through any system and she can expose every secret you hide."
- ―description from the official website
Clara is a Caucasian female with a slender build. She has long brown hair with white highlights, cut into a mohawk like style that stops about shoulder length. She wears silver flesh tunnels in both ears and has three facial piercings: both cheeks and a labret (lower lip). She also wears black eyeliner with a touch of eyeshadow. Clara also appears to have tattoos on her upper chest, neck and arms. She has a Triple Valknut Tattoo on her chest.
Clara wears a low-cut, black DedSec top and above, she wears a black, short-sleeve leather jacket. The cleavage area slightly reveals a black bra. She wears a long necklace and a number of wrist bangles and accessories. This also includes a ring on her index and middle finger of her right hand and another ring on her ring finger of her left hand. Clara's dark-themed appearance is continued by her use of black nail polish/varnish, with a white star and curve.
Clara wears a large spider-web belt, which is only half visible, and a light brown belt that is matched to a neatly fitting pair of grey jeans. She also wears black knee-length boots.
Personality and traitsEdit
According to the official website, Clara is a seductive and dangerous individual. A highly skilled computer hacker, she can bypass most systems and gain access to the most private of information.
During A Blank Spot There-Ish, she tells Aiden that she grew up poor, and her father was a treasure hunter and/or petty thief. She accompanied him treasure hunting as a little girl, and he allowed her to keep a small coin that he told her was the key to the Roman empire.
As a member of DedSec, Clara believes that information should be free.
Clara can easily read people through their actions. This is seen when Aiden apologized for being rough on her. She explained that she knew what he was doing to try and intimidate her with the stare, contact and strong stance he displayed to try and find "cracks" in her.
It's also obvious that Clara was haunted by the fact she placed the hit on Aiden, ordered by "Lucky" Quinn, that led to Lena's death. It is the guilt she felt that she decided to work with Aiden to "help [him] heal" as well as herself from the guilt of causing a child's death.
In the Mission Remember, Nicole asks Aiden if he knows who keeps leaving the dark flowers on Lena's grave. There is reason to believe it was Clara, leaving the flowers out of guilt and repentance. This is shown true that at the end of the game: when Clara supposedly dies, Aiden finds the same kind of flowers beside her.
During one of her numerous visits to the grave of Lena Pearce, Clara was ambushed by Chicago South Club hitmen sent by Dermot "Lucky" Quinn. Former in the mission, it is possible to find audio logs from Quinn stating that he was treating her as an enemy, because she was aware of the Club's activities and Quinn's involvement (after Rushmore's speech, if you hack Quinn's phone you will find out that he is tasking someone to kill her). Rushing as fast as he could, Aiden got there too late, as he watch Clara get shot to death by numerous hitmen, the flowers still in her hand.

At first Clara and Aiden do not trust each other and visible tension can be seen between the two in their early interactions. Though she cannot be trusted, Clara forms an alliance with Aiden, sharing common ground through being hackers.
Later on, the two grow to truly care about each other, with Aiden saying she is the closest he has to having a good friend. It can be implied by her dialogue and her behavior that she might have fallen in love with him.

As per her words "I'm a fan."
Idolised and relished the opportunity to be able to work alongside him during the short period of time they had together.
Dermot "Lucky" QuinnEdit
Main article: Dermot "Lucky" Quinn
Clara was hired by Quinn to track down Aiden and Damien. While Clara was the one who gave the Chicago South Club the names, it was Quinn who truly ordered the hit. It was due to this job that Clara felt compelled to help Aiden, not only to heal him, but to hopefully make up for what she unwittingly had done.
By hacking Quinn's emails while in his office Aiden discovers that not only did Clara not accept the payment for the hit on him but has also declined all job offers from Quinn's associates since then too. Quinn later asked one of his associates to have her killed, because she "has developed conscience".

- Clara often uses Quebecer swearwords such as "Calisse". She sometimes uses French words, reminiscent of her Canadian origins.
- In the introduction of the game, after the Merlaut cutscene, Maurice's caller is seen opening an e-mail from BadBoy17, which contains the profiles of Damien Brenks and Aiden Pearce. This is a hint of Clara's involvement into the Club's hit on Aiden and Damien.
- Also, when Aiden says that he is "going to kill everybody involved in Lena's death" (after Jury-Rigged), she suddenly stops talking. When Aiden asks her if she's still on the phone, her voice tone shows that she is somewhat disturbed.
- She is mentioned (as BadBoy 17) in a few audio logs from G1gg1L3s, a DedSec member which can be heard by reading QR Codes.
