Clare tends to come across as stuck up and innocent, but can also be sneaky. However, she is a kind-hearted person and cares for her friends and is willing to defend them if need be. During the Summer of 2013, she was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a type of cancer. Fortunately, Clare's chemotherapy treatment work and she was declared to be in remission by the end of the summer, just in time to be Degrassi's Student Council Vice President for her senior year, the 2013-2014 school year.
Clare is currently in her third relationship with best friend Eli Goldsworthy. She is best friends with Alli Bhandari, Adam Torres, before his death, and Jenna Middleton. She is also good friends with Connor Delaurier, K.C. Guthrie, Wesley Betenkamp, Jake Martin, Drew Torres and Katie Matlin. She is on good terms with Imogen Moreno and Mike Dallas, and is enemies with Luke Baker. She used to have conflicts with Mark Fitzgerald, and Holly J. Sinclair. She also had a major conflict with her former boss, Asher Shostak, who sexually harassed her. She is labeled as "The Perfectionist." She is portrayed by Aislinn Paul.
Clare made her first appearance in Eyes Without a Face (1), watching television in the same room with her sister Darcy, who is on the computer constantly updating her MyRoom page account. Clare always tries to see what Darcy is doing. Darcy proceeds to describe her as annoying. Clare is also seen as something of a "Goody Two Shoes."When Darcy invites Spinner into her room, Clare reminds her that their mother doesn't allow boys over when she is not home. However, Darcy ignores her and tells her to leave. Later, she is seen walking home with Darcy when the two encounter Adams. Darcy tells her to go inside, but Clare can tell something is not right and hurries inside to call 911 after Darcy mouths it to her. Clare is later seen comforting Darcy.
In Standing In The Dark (1), Clare is seen walking through the living room while Darcy is pretending to be sick to get out of going to the retreat.
In Standing In The Dark (2), Clare is seen in the hospital after Darcy's suicide attempt. She clearly looks distraught about what her sister has done, but doesn't make an effort to try and figure out what went wrong by asking Peter or Manny, whom she hasn't met. She merely stayed with her father, and remained quiet.
In Season 8 of Degrassi, Clare is a new freshman in the gifted class, along with Alli Bhandari, K.C. Guthrie, and Connor Delaurier. She graduated from a private Christian school and is now attending Degrassi, along with her older sister, Darcy. Clare wore her old uniform to school every day because she didn't care what other people thought of her, and only had a desire to learn at Degrassi, not to impress boys.
In Uptown Girl (2), in order to prove that she doesn't care what other people think, K.C. dares her to do a talent in front of the whole cafeteria. She sings a hymn, but she is mortified when people start booing and throwing food at her. K.C. later apologizes, saying it's normal to care what other people think, and begins to show a romantic interest in her.
In Fight the Power, Darcy leaves for Kenya to help build schools there. Clare is seen giving presents from Darcy to all of her friends. Clare gives one to Jane, and tells her she is her and Alli's hero for being the only girl on the football team. She also gives one to Peter saying Darcy still does care about him.
In Man With Two Hearts, Clare and Alli are studying at Mr. Simpson's house, when they discover a vibrator under Spike's bed. It ends up being taken to school. In class, Connor steps on Clare's bag, where the vibrator is. Mr. Armstrong believes it to be a cell phone until he opens the bag to find the purple penis-shaped vibrator. Alli tries to convince him it's a robot, but he asks "Do I look like I was born yesterday?" Alli then jokes, saying "Depends...How old are you?" Clare's mom is called up by The Shep and demands she tell her why she is using it. Clare says she is not and she just bought it with her own money. Mrs. Edwards does not want to talk to Clare about it. Later, her mother apologizes, and asks Clare if she has any questions, which she does. The next day, Clare and Alli discuss what happened, and Clare says it was unquestionably awkward. Holly J. insults Clare, saying "Starting with sex toys early, Little Edwards? What would Jesus say?" However, Clare comes back at her, replying "that masturbation is normal, and nobody should be embarrassed about it. And maybe if you tried it once in a while, you wouldn't be so mean." This causes several people outside, including Alli, to laugh, while an irritated Holly J. scoffs and walks away.
In Lost in Love, both K.C. and Connor ask Clare to the Sweetheart Dance. The two boys start fighting over Clare, only to have her deny them both. Later on, she regrets this decision and decides to go with K.C., making Connor feel rejected. Connor puts Clare in a tight spot by asking her to go with him in front of the whole school, and she awkwardly accepts. At the dance, Connor forces Clare on the dance floor, though it is obvious she does not want to be there. She tells Connor she will be back and leaves the dance room. On her way out, she bumps into K.C., who asks her to dance with him. She agrees and they dance comfortably for awhile. However, the moment is short lived when Connor barges in, whining that Clare was his date to the dance. He storms off in fury and Clare follows. Later on, Clare finds K.C. and tells him she's not ready for a relationship. K.C. accepts her answer.
In Causing a Commotion, Clare is surprised by Connor's strange behavior, but sticks by him anyway. She starts to protest against The Shep, who expelled Connor, although knowing he has been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. K.C. and Alli mistakenly film her talking to the Shep about letting Connor back into Degrassi; they decide to air The Shep calling Clare a bitch, and they show it to the school at The Shep's ceremony for Principal of the Year. The Shep is sent to sensitivity training for numerous reasons. Much to Clare's pleasure, Connor is let back into Degrassi. Because of their contradicting beliefs about Connor and Clare's fear of being judged, Alli and Clare both went their separate ways.In Heat of the Moment, when Alli starts a hate group about Holly J. on Facerange, Clare strongly disapproves and tries to convince her to just ignore Holly J. and her hostile remarks.
In Jane Says (2), Clare finally stops wearing her Catholic school uniform, and begins wearing Darcy's old clothes, which results in getting her attention from many boys. Alli gets jealous when boys pay more attention to Clare than her, but Alli ends up apologizing to her and does not mind when Clare decides to keep her new look.In Touch of Grey, Clare finds out K.C.'s secret: he lives in a group home because of something he did at his old school with his friends. Clare is still shown to care about about him, even if he doesn't think so.
In Heart of Glass, we only see Clare a few times - in the beginning, being doubtful of what Alli wants to do and trying to talk her out of it, and afterward, being supportive and helpful.
In Danger Zone, things between K.C. and Clare are still rocky. K.C. assumes that Clare would judge him, so fueled by his hurt feelings he initiates fights with Clare about his past. Connor is puzzled by the fighting, and when prompted by Alli to fix it, invites Clare and K.C. over without either of them being aware of the other attending. He attempts to repair their relationship by locking them in his basement/room, which doesn't go over well. K.C. flees the house. Clare is next seen at the Black and White dance talking to Connor about K.C. She feels hurt and questions why he is still acting like an idiot. Connor responds by telling her that K.C. likes her. Clare finally realizes how much K.C. cares for her, and gets Connor to lock him in a room with her again. K.C. initially thinks Connor planned it all out, but Clare explains that this time it was her idea. She then goes on to say that she understands why they are always fighting, she explains that they were afraid that if they stopped they would kiss. Except instead of saying the word "kiss", she actually tries to kiss him. K.C rejects the kiss, and Clare, thinking that she had it all wrong, attempts to leave the room, close to tears. K.C stops her just in time and tells her she was right. They finally share their first kiss, prompting the start of their relationship.
Season 9In Just Can't Get Enough, Clare arrives at Degrassi with Alli in order to finish her freshman year. But when new girl Jenna Middleton asks Clare to hang out after school, she tells her that she and Alli are doing a homework-T.V. night and feels obligated to invite her. Alli gets mad, but grudgingly lets Jenna hang out with them. Jenna tells Alli and Clare that she used to be a "boyfriend stealer" at her old school and tells Clare she thinks K.C. is "so cute." This makes both Clare and Alli uneasy, but Jenna promises she won't even look at him. She is later seen at the "Winter Beach Bash."
In You Be Illin', Alli doesn't tell Clare about the STD Johnny could possibly have given her because she doesn't want Clare to judge her. When Clare finds Jenna and Alli scheming against Johnny, Alli reluctantly tells her about what happened, and Clare is surprisingly willing to help them in their scheme of embarrassing him in front of the whole school. In the end, their plan goes unexpectedly well, with Johnny admitting that he still has feelings for Alli.
In Heart Like Mine (1), Clare starts to get jealous of Jenna's promiscuous behavior around K.C. The first signs are when K.C. hugs Jenna before Clare when he wins the game. Clare asks K.C. for a hug and a twirl too in a cute sarcastic puppy tone. K.C. sighs and she says at least a kiss. At the car wash Clare can't put her jealousy to a rest when she sees K.C. and Jenna fighting with the water. When Clare tells K.C. that he is playing with Jenna more than her, K.C. soaks her with the hose. Clare starts playing around until K.C goes back to playing around with Jenna.

She asks Clare why she took down her vampire fan-fiction as she thought it was really good, but Clare replies it may be good but she is still a pervert. Holly J. says it is just puberty, and if fantasizing about Declan keeps her from kissing him in the real world, then she should by all means keep writing.

After being comforted by Eli who tells Principal Simpson that it was Fitz who set off the stink bomb and Clare went along with it, Eli then tells Clare she needs a way to thank him for lying for her. She replies "What did you have in mind?" He lets his eyes wonder for a moment and says 'Well I don't know." Eli quickly leans in and kisses her very deeply while she just stands there. They looked at each other for a moment, then Eli says awkwardly "I have a French exam." Clare, still in shock from the kiss, replies "I think you just passed it."

She runs to Adam, informing him that Fitz has a knife, and that he should tell Mr. Simpson while she looks for Eli. When Mr. Simpson finds out he immediately puts the school on lockdown, and the police arrive shortly after. Clare finally finds Eli and warns him that Fitz has a knife, but Eli doesn't really care.

Clare asks if he has seen the picture that she sent him and he says yes and if she is implying something. She says in order for her to not miss him that much, they should do something sexy. He asks what she has in mind and she says video chat sex. Eli is shocked but agrees and says they should do it later when he isn't busy. Clare asks if 10 o'clock is fine and he says yes and Clare is happy.
Clare and Eli are online starting their video chat. She decides to dress in tight clothing. She wore a black corset, tight red blouse, and tight jeans. They begin to strip when Clare's mom knocks on Clare's door and says that the hospital called. Eli asks if anything is wrong and Clare says it's probably nothing and goes to talk to her mom. When she talks to her mom, she finds out that she has cancer. After the talk, Clare comes back into the room.Eli is shirtless then he pulls of his blanket to reveal his lower half. Shocked, Clare quickly tells him to cover up and that they should take a rain check. Eli says okay and Clare tells him that she has cancer. He quickly respond and says he is coming home. Clare tells him not to and if he does, she will be mad. Eli tells Clare he loves her and Clare says she knows and that she will be fine.
During her stay at the hospital, Clare's strength crumbles. She packs up her things and begins to leave the hospital. Before she leaves, Clare stops outside her room and goes to sit in a corner to call Eli. Clare leaves a message for Eli and tells him that she knows she told him not to come back home, but asks him to return anyway and that she's scared. Soon after this, Eli appears and says he left right after Clare told him she had cancer.
In All I Wanna Do, Clare and Eli are cuddling on Clare's hospital bed and trying to find something to watch on TV. They find a channel with a hospital scene, learning that it was West Drive they were watching, and Zoe Rivas' character asks if she is going to die. Clare turns off the TV and suggests they "play doctor." They begin kissing and some of Clare's hair begins falling out. Clare's nurse walks in and Eli leaves them alone, saying he will come back later. After speaking with another cancer patient, Paula , Clare begins to worry that Eli may leave her. Adam visits Clare and accidentally mentions that Eli sent him an email on how to talk to Clare. This upsets Clare and Eli comes into the room with a healthy smoothie for Clare and isn't sure what he did wrong. Clare starts to yell at Eli. While she is getting upset, Clare grabs her hair and more of her hair falls out. Clare tells Eli he should come back later, and Eli and Adam leave to catch up.
Clare shaves her head and Adam and Drew are the first to see her with no hair. Clare says she doesn't want Eli to see her like this. Adam and Drew suggest she gets a wig. Imogen and Adam later help Clare decide on a wig to keep. When the wigs Clare has tried on end up not working out, Imogen gives Clare a blonde wig that Clare loves. Clare prepares for a date with Eli and is about done when someone knocks on the door. Clare assumes it is Eli, however it was her nurse. The nurse was looking for Clare's mother to fill out an MRI questionnaire. Clare realizes the doctors want to see if the cancer has spread. Clare asks if she can fill the paper out later and the nurse lets her.At the end of the episode, Eli and Clare cuddle on the couch and Clare tells Eli if he wants out, to tell her now. Eli assures that he's all in and that he loves her.

Drew dresses up as a doctor and takes Clare to the Degrassi Camp. Clare volunteers to be a counsellor for the day and run a relay course with the kids. Halfway through the course, Clare gets sick and throws up. She rests on a bench where the two kids she ran with ask her why she got sick. She tells them she's sick. The boy, who has a cold, coughs on her without covering his mouth and this causes Clare to panic. She yells at him by saying that she could die from a cold, freaking the kids out. Clare asks Drew to drive her back to the hospital, knowing it isn't safe for her to be out in the world in her condition.
At the hospital, Eli finds out she's returned and starts yelling at her and says that hospital staff almost did a "code yellow", in which cops go look for a patient. Clare tells him that she doesn't know how much time she may have left, but intends to spend them in the best way possible. He tells her how worried he was, but Clare assures him that she's fine. They share a kiss and Clare's mother walks in. Tearful, she brings good news: The MRI scan confirmed that Clare's cancer hasn't spread. This means Clare has a higher chance of being cured. Clare declares she fully intends to fight her cancer and they share a group hug.
In Honey, Clare tells Alli on the phone that she'll be out of the hospital soon and has two more sessions of chemo left. She then asks Alli about how she's doing with Leo. Clare tells Alli to live life to the fullest with Leo and get back together with him.
In Young Forever, Clare is seen writing a message to Adam on his memorial page. She appears to be having trouble finding the right words to say because she erases the words she has already written. Eli walks in and she asks "How do you say goodbye to someone who changed your life?" Eli says that the funeral didn't do the trick. They continue to talk about how Adam was never gloomy and Eli hopes that people remember him that way. Clare suggests that Eli and she and Eli help them by making the best memorial video. She is later seen with Eli watching footage of Adam making fun of what Clare says and they are seen laughing. Her mother comes in and tells her CT scan came back clean. Eli jumps up excited and Clare asks “seriously?” Eli then asks her if she’s cured and she replies that she’s not yet but she’s in remission. Her mother says which means the cancer is gone for now. Eli asks, “So you can finally blow this popsicle stand. Her mother says that she being discharged tonight. Eli is over come with joy and says that people would love to see her because they need some good news. Her mother says that they need to get the place packed up. Eli chuckles and her mother kisses her on her for head. Clare is shown emotional and about to cry and Eli says, “It’s okay to be happy.” Then she hugs him. Eli comes in her hospital room and sees her not ready for the bonfire and asks her why she isn’t ready. She says that she shouldn’t go to the funeral with the excuse that she is still immuno-suppressed. Eli says that doctor said it was okay as long as there is no close contact. She said that there will be hugging and Eli says that he will do the hugging for her. She is seen teary eyed and Eli kneels down and asks her, “You want to honor Adam don’t you?” she responds by saying, “You know I do.” Eli asks her what’s with all the excuses. She starts to cry and says that Adam got her through the summer and it’s not fair that she, who has cancer, lived and he died unexpectedly feeling durvivors guilt. Eli says that she can’t blame herself for living and that Adam wouldn’t want anyone to be sad, angry, or guilty and Clare says, “You don’t know that.” With her voice all cracked. Eli asks her if she would and she says no. She is seen with Eli walking to the bonfire and they talk about that party that Adam through for Fiona and Clare says that’s when she and Eli finally sparked.

They all gather in a circle, Clare is wrapped in Eli’s arms, to watch the lantern fly into the night sky as a symbol of Adam’s memory.
Appearance & Style
Clare's look has met a drastic change every school year. In her freshman year, Clare wore a very formal uniform to school everyday. This consisted of a white shirt, dark navy blue sweater vest, and red clad skirt. She would always tie her hair in a ponytail, and wore glasses. This look showed off Clare's belief that she "didn't care" what others thought of her. She was very serious about her look, but did not judge others, like Alli or Connor for theirs. This was all until Alli gave her a makeover. From this point on she wore her sister's old clothes, earning her attention from many boys.
In her sophomore year, Clare changed her look completely. She cut her hair short and got laser eye surgery, so she no longer needed glasses. She began to wear bright colors, complete with her trademark denim jackets. This year, her look also required a change, as the uniforms arrived, putting Clare back into her formal habit. At one point, she changed her look altogether, wearing rocker clothing, highlights, and striped leggings in retaliation of her parents arguing, but quickly changed back.
In her junior year, Clare's hair grew a few inches. She almost always wore a black cotton jacket over her now red school shirt. After the uniforms were no longer in place, Clare did not completely return to her casual attire. She instead dressed more formally, wearing suit jackets and floral skirts, as she had begun to go after her career choices.
During the summer before her senior year, Clare decides to shave off her hair due to her chemotherapy and cancer. So, she starts to wear wigs that Imogen and Adam helped her pick out. By the looks of promos, she may go back to her season 10 casual look, and will grow her hair in a stylized fashion.
- (To Darcy): "Why are you so addicted to writing a dumb blog no one reads?" (first line)
- (To Darcy): "A person can be good and mixed up all at the same time."

- (To K.C.): "My life didn't revolve around you, K.C., there are things going on with me that you know nothing about, so spare me the pity."
- (To K.C.): "As soon as things get rough, you blame everyone but yourself."
- (To Jenna): "If I wanted K.C. back, I wouldn't need fake boobs to get him."
- (To Connor) "You don't bore me."
- Eli (about Clare's glasses): "I think they're dead."
Clare: "Uh, i-it's okay. I, uh, I don't need them anymore. Got laser surgery."

Eli: "I will! On account that I'm pretty familiar with the material, and all."
- Eli: "You'd think that Romeo would require a few minutes, before the poison kicked in."
Clare: "Y-you make a-a valid point. He does die pretty hastily. What if... Juliet were to wake up, and find him alive for a brief moment?"
Eli: "They could... share a final kiss."
- Eli: "Justice has been served."
Clare: "If Fitz finds out--"
Eli: "I'll handle it. Now, let's talk about something more important, like how you're gonna thank me for throwing Simpson off your scent."

- Clare: "The stars are out."
Eli: "What's your wish?"

- Eli: "Women are trouble."
Clare: "Even me?"
Eli: "Especially you."
- (To Eli): "Did three months mean NOTHING?! Did you flip a switch and erase me from your memory?! It took you a year! A YEAR to get over your ex! Did you ever love me at all?!"
- Clare: "I read your play."
Clare: "It's... it's beautiful."
Eli: "Yeah, I made some changes."
Clare: "You made Clara the hero."
Eli: "That's because she is the hero."

Eli: So, may I ask: Why did you run into a dark forest by yourself?"
Clare: Let's just say, a certain someone moved on before I had a chance to talk to him.
Eli: Stop. Y-you're overwhelming me with details.
Clare: Is it weird to be glad you were the one to find me?" (Eli chuckles and smiles)

Jake: You're lame.
- (To Jake): "Stop. I thought about kissing Eli... to get back at you."
- Eli: "So, what do you think? Even though the Grundy's didn't nominate my play, I tried to remain objective.

Eli: "Yeah, you should've seen my first draft."
- Eli: "Were you really worried that us hanging out would set me off?"
Clare: "It wasn't you I was worried about."
- (To Eli): "I'm all in."

Connor: "That was the point. You were acting so full of yourself."
Clare: "But my mentor saw it. Do you understand how embarrassing that was? I love working with Asher, and I don't want to lose my co-op just because you have Asperger's."
Connor: "Because I have Asperger's? Do you hear yourself?"
Clare: "Don't overreact. Just please... delete the tweets."
- (Approaching Asher): "You ruined everything. I looked up to you, I-I wanted to be just like you. And you took advantage of me like some dumb, naive little girl. You sexually harassed me!
