Personality

  • Alignment

    Claire puts the chaos in chaotic good
  • Motivation

    Orphans! Claire is incredibly motivated to improve and enhance the technology available to Eorzea, to protect her borders from future tragedies.
The children of the orphanage she grew up in are everyday reminders of why she pushes herself so hard to create technology that will improve and make the world a safer place.
  • Disposition

    Claire is a cheerful, happy go lucky young woman.
  • Outlook

    "It's okay... I brought Safety Goggles."
  • Positive personality traits

    Driven, Friendly, Upbeat, Loyal, Big-hearted.
  • Negative personality traits

    Head in the Clouds too often, leading to her being unfocused, unaware of the dangers her eccentric experiments might cause. Quick temper (though also quick to cool) Hates feeling restrained, and so can often be at odds with authority figures. Willful, stubborn.
  • Miscellaneous quirks

    Where to start? She talks to herself and her inventions a lot; can have entire conversations with herself when others are trying to speak to her. Sometimes talk about others like they aren't there, when they are. She honestly believes everyone would have survived the Calamity if they had just been wearing safety goggles... (she can't honestly believe that, can she?) Pulls on her pigtails when worried/nervous/anxious. Thinks explosions are frickin awesome. Named her Chocobo 'Kabooom'. Has a.... mildly unhealthy? crush on Kan E Senna, after she saw her speak in Gridania once. Sometimes forgets to bathe. Will hand dynamite to random strangers just because her hands are full.

Biography

Claire grew up in an orphanage outside Drybone, run by Charles Hargrave, a midlander male who never had children of his own. She used to terrorize the nuns, doing things such as placing toads in their underwear drawers, and had a very Tom Sawyer-esque relationship with them; she was often never around, for fear she was about to get punished. She loved and respected them in her own little way... her acting out honestly just being cries for attention as she was 'different' and often at odds with the other kids.
Where they had one goal; be adopted, Claire hated the idea of being told what to do, and so grew older and older in the dusty halls of the church while everyone around her eventually moved away. Out of respect for her 'father' she took on the last name Hargrave, though was never formally adopted by him. As she entered her mid-teens, she went from 'odd outsider' to 'beloved rascal' by the littler kids, who saw her as a big Sis. She loved this dynamic; the happiest times of her life, but upon turning 18 was told she would have to move out to make room for other orphans coming in.
She spent a year taking on jobs fixing stuff, and saving gil, and has now saved just enough to try and make a start in adulthood, renting space in The Guiding Light, where she hopes to set up her own workshop.
