Events of Watch Dogs[edit | edit source]
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.
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. 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 Damien intends to have her eliminated, and heads to the cemetary, where Clara is visiting Lena's grave to place flowers there. Just then, fixers 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 fixers, 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."
Appearance[edit | edit source]

|~ 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.
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, a light brown belt that is matched to a neatly fitting pair of grey jeans. She also wears black knee-length boots.
Personality and traits[edit | edit source]
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.
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.
Death[edit | edit source]
During one of her numerous visits to the grave of Lena Pearce, Clara was ambushed by hired fixers sent by Lucky Quinn. Rushing as fast as he could, Aiden got there too late, as he watch Clara get shot to death by numerous fixers, the flowers still in her hand.

Clara was hired by Lucky to track down Aiden and Damien, while Clara was the one who gave the Chicago South Club the names it was him who truly ordered the hit.
