Claire was born after the one nightstand her parents had. So the girl has never really known her father, she has seen him a few times, but they aren't close like she is with her mother, who has always been there for her. Her mother has always tried her best, and it was surprising to both of them when Claire was 5, and she had magic in her. At first, these weird things happened around her. This is the time when she learned things from her father, who was actually a half-blood wizard. This made the girl also be half-blood one.
After this, it was safe to say she went to that Tally program for young kids 5-11 to learn an about magic. Just her both parents seemed it to be the right thing since her father couldn't be there for her. He had his own another family to take care. She did love there, and she could even spend time with other kids, who had magic. She learned so much about it before she had attended to Tally real magical school at the age of eleven.
Attending to Tally has been an exciting time for her. She learned so much about magic and how to be a proper witch. She even made some new friends to herself there. She has nothing against the school. She stayed at this dormitories during school days since she couldn't afford the travel back at home always. Her mother wasn't rich at all, and her father didn't support them that much. He did give some money, but it wasn't always enough. She didn't mind staying at this dormitories, it has been interesting experiences. She seems to enjoy Potions and Herbology classes and she doesn't precisely dislike anything but she isn't very good at Ancient Runes but so far with help her friends she has managed to get through it.
