Claire Jessica Everly is a Senior Deputy for the Blaine County Sheriff's Office, Badge #380. She was formerly a Dispatch FTO for the Los Santos Police Dispatch as well as a Private Investigator for the Department of Justice.
Prior to moving to Los Santos Claire was a Sergeant & Detective for the Liberty City Police Department, working drug-smuggling & homicide cases, as well as a state trooper for the Liberty State Police where she also attained the rank of Sergeant and worked the Gangs Division. Claire moved to Los Santos to reconnect with her family and start fresh.
Claire is a Caucasian female, standing five foot seven with deep blue eyes and pale skin with a dusting of freckles across her face. Claire has stark white hair styled into an asymmetrical bob cut that is an easily-identifiable family trait. Caused by a genetic condition that causes the hair to lose melanin during childhood, Claire has had white hair nearly her entire life.
With a slender and muscular build, Claire has a stronger physique than her nerdy demeanor would suggest.
Claire wears prescription glasses, commonly with dark-rimmed frames. Without them she has trouble seeing a few feet in front of her. Her makeup is usually modest with dark red lipstick being a common choice.
Claire has a few tattoos, some of which may or may not be temporary. On her upper left arm she has a rose growing through a skull; on her right a sleeve with flames and an engine; and on her upper left chest she has a molecular symbol. Claire also has a few faint scars, including one on her left leg from where the Sanctuary Killer stabbed her repeatedly during her torture.
The most notable feature of Claire's personality is the generally upbeat and positive energy she brings to every interaction, even with hardened criminals. Claire is an empathetic person at heart and always looks for the best in people. Claire can commonly be heard saying "We're all human at the end of the day, just people who make different choices." This belief informs everything Claire does, from her day-to-day life to her work as a cop. Claire prefers to give people the benefit of the doubt, no matter their past.
Claire is a confident person, but can be socially awkward, occasionally sticking her foot in her mouth. She spent most of her teen years reading books or playing D&D with her few friends. Claire had a somewhat sheltered childhood and misses out on many pop culture references and innuendo. Being a bit of a nerd also leads Claire to overthink things at times, which can stress her out.
Claire is a loyal person, often to a fault, which can result in her being passive with those she cares about. This can lead to Claire being hurt by people close to her, especially those she looks up to.
She also has an aggressive side that she works diligently to keep suppressed, but can leak through during intense situations. Claire is also quite assertive and confident, especially in the line of duty. She also has a tendency to be quite sarcastic, sometimes rubbing people the wrong way. As a former Broker cop, Claire can also be loud and foul-mouthed at times.
Claire has a good sense of humor and is always willing to join in on a bit. She loves making people smile and laugh, thanks to her childhood spent cheering up her adoptive father, a detective. Claire has an awkward streak and can be a bit of a klutz as well, something she'll play up for the laughs.
|Claire was born in Liberty City to unfit parents, the same parents her elder sisters had been rescued from previously.
Emily and Jesse Everly adopted Claire as a baby and raised her as their own. Jesse, an LCPD detective, and Emily, a city teacher, proved caring and capable parents for young Claire.
Claire's childhood with her adoptive parents was a happy one, and they all but doted on her. Far from spoiled, her detective father raised her with a sense of self-responsibility. Claire made sure the chores were done on-time and was a well-behaved kid. Claire's parents took her out for regular outings to parks, with one of their favorites being Middle Park. She did well in school, academically speaking, but always struggled to make friends. Her hair and her nerdy demeanor often led her to being singled out. When Claire did make friends she often spent time with them alone, playing D&D or some other imaginative adventure game. Claire didn't watch many movies growing up and is generally out of the loop when it comes to many popular culture references. Eventually Claire's adoptive parents revealed to her she was adopted and that she had living sisters who were blood-related. The Everlys connected with the Angels, adoptive parents of her older sister Brittany, and the two sisters torn apart by circumstance were finally reunited.
When she was barely in high-school her parents were brutally slain while out on a date one night. Her father, a homicide detective, had been tracking a particularly cunning serial killer for many weeks. The leads were slim, but her father thought he was getting close. Claire's father had always let her take a peek at her case files, so she was as invested as he was. Sadly her father never got to finish his case as he and his wife were found murdered in Middle Park, once a place of joy to them, and all the evidence pointed to the very killer he'd been tracking.
Following her adoptive parents' shocking murder Claire devoted herself to the path of law enforcement. After graduating high-school she went to Vespucci University and received a a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice. After college she immediately applied to the LCPD and was accepted to the next academy. Claire was eager to live to the name of her father and maybe one day help run the Broker detective bureau like he did.
Claire graduated the LCPD academy and soon found herself thrust out onto the streets during an especially violent time in Liberty City. Gang warfare was rampant, and it seemed every criminal was packing an automatic weapon. Every traffic stop had the potential of turning into a gunfight, and Claire soon found herself becoming grimly familiar with shootouts. After some time on the streets Claire earned an unwanted reputation for being a good shot, something she shied away from. Gunning people down wasn't something she wanted to be proud of. Claire longed for a break from the high-octane action, to become a detective like her father was.
Eventually Claire got her wish, earning a promotion to Sergeant and an invitation to help run the Major Crimes Unit for the LCPD. Finally achieving the same rank and position as her father once help in the very same bureau and department was a hallmark of Claire's career as a law enforcement officer. Claire's purview was the Broker Detective Bureau, overseeing casework and investigations in her little section of the city. Broker was Claire's home, and she aimed to protect it the way she always wanted to. From busting meth-peddling bikers to tracking down deranged killers, Claire made the streets a little safer with every successful investigation. After months of busy work in Broker locking up criminals and ending sprees, Claire picked up the trail of a new killer. A sex worker's body had been viciously mutilated and carved upon, then dumped outside a church. This would start off one of the biggest investigations of Claire's career and one that would scar her irrevocably.
The Sanctuary Killer
|The Sanctuary Killer|
The Killer's Trail
More women were found slain, their skin used like a notebook for the killer's deranged religious manifesto. The imagery of words carved into flesh was burned into Claire's mind. Again, the bodies were left outside churches with white roses left in their hands. Claire chose the name "Sanctuary Killer" for her investigation. She couldn't remember where she got the idea for the name, but it seemed apropos given the choice of locations for his crimes.
The Sanctuary Killer himself soon became aware of Claire's investigation, even going so far as to watch her from a distance while she combed his scenes for evidence. His true ruthlessness became apparent after he brutally wounded and nearly killed an officer sent to investigate him when he was spotted watching one of these scenes from afar. After this, the case heated up quickly. Claire and the others knew he was out there watching them, bringing a heightened sense of urgency to their investigations. She had been right about the threat this man posed and was determined to bring him to justice.
Claire put in countless hours on the case, thankful she was paid overtime, spending far too much time in the office. After hours spent going over autopsy photos and case reports, including grim close-ups of mutilated bodies and bible verses carved into human flesh, Claire was filled with a cold determination to put the bastard that did these unspeakable acts behind bars. Or, if necessary, she imagined herself putting a gun to his head and pulling the trigger. Ending it that way, permanently. But Claire pushed those thoughts away and focused instead on finding justice the legal way.
The Sanctuary Killer's obsession with her escalated from merely watching her from afar to sending her depraved text messages from a blocked number. He sent her disturbing messages about "testing the purity" of "his flowers." He even stayed close to Claire, unbeknownst to her, following her around Liberty City in a yellow taxi, easily blending into the many driving around. Claire even began receiving anonymous deliveries of dozens of white roses, the obvious link to the case she was working on chilling her to the core. Claire's nerves were frayed thin as she hunted a man who also seemed to be hunting her. Her paranoia was in overdrive, and she was constantly looking over her shoulder. As if the case hadn't already become personal enough, it would soon become even more so when the killer started targeting her friends.
Now It's Personal
Miu and Destiny, Claire's best friends, soon found themselves victims of the Sanctuary Killer as well. Destiny, in a cruel irony, was kidnapped from outside South Slopes Police Department shortly after talking to Claire. Claire had confided in her friend that she'd had a "bad feeling" after noticing the same yellow taxi cruising slowly past SSPD a bit too many times. It wasn't enough to protect Destiny, however, as Claire discovered when she called her friend to hang out later that night. Destiny never answered. To make matters worse, Claire's other best friend Miu Soledad, was also kidnapped by the Sanctuary Killer. More than just her friend, Miu was also the Medical Examiner and was directly assisting Claire in the investigation. Her kidnapping sent shock-waves through the PD and medical staff, leading to an even larger police response.
Claire received cryptic updates on her friends as the Sanctuary Killer continued to taunt her from a distance. He texted Claire about his "flowers" being "tested" and "shown the light." One flower "wouldn't stop screaming" and had to be sent away. The killer told Claire that her friends weren't good enough for his tests, and that they had failed him. Claire was stressed to the breaking point by this enigmatic harassment, and pushed herself even harder in the hunt for this monster who had taken her friends.
One late shift, while out searching for any sign of her kidnapped friends and the depraved man that had taken them, Claire found herself the target. It was well past midnight, and Claire was investigating the site of a newly built office building in East Hook. While searching the lower floors of the unoccupied tower the power was cut, leaving the detective in pitch black. Claire, flashlight in hand, attempted to make her way out of the building, radioing in to dispatch that she was finishing the scene and coming back. Before she could leave, she was struck from behind and knocked out cold.
Claire awoke and found herself trapped in the basement of the depraved serial murderer she'd been hunting. The Sanctuary Killer, revealed to be a man named Joe Buffalo, had Claire exactly where he wanted her. He began telling Claire that she was his perfect woman, that they were meant to be together. He told Claire he would cleanse her of her sins, and began this by repeatedly waterboarding her. Gasping and barely breathing, Claire struggled to maintain her grip on consciousness.
After waterboarding her, he demanded her to submit to him. Claire stubbornly refused, spitting at him, and swearing she'd bring him down. Buffalo responded by punching her repeatedly in the gut, and then waterboarding her more. When even this torture proved insufficient to break her, the deranged man turned even more violent. He stabbed Claire in the left leg with a hunting knife, driving it deep into the muscle of her thigh.
The searing pain of the knife in her thigh all but blinded Claire and she struggled to remain in control, to fight the urge to give in to either the madman with the knife or the relief that unconsciousness would bring her. Claire's anger rose instead, a fury driving her forward, and she cursed at Joe Buffalo, telling him she'd fucking kill him if she got free. Angered by her foul language, Joe Buffalo quoted scripture at her and then struck her repeatedly before waterboarding her again. As Claire was tortured, her radio lay in the corner, discarded by the killer. A transmission crackled through, and Claire heard her fellow officers searching for her, calling out for her. She listened to that radio and focused on it, and not the words of the disturbed man standing over her, whispering that he loved her and had to cleanse her.
Claire's anger never subsided, and she continued to fight against the killer that held her captive. Buffalo twisted the knife in Claire's leg as punishment for her continued resistance, telling Claire that he didn't want to do this but that she must be cleansed. Joe Buffalo called her his perfect flower, his "White Rose", and that she must be cleansed in order for them to be together. He told her that she would be cleansed and pass the final test, unlike the others, unlike the ones who failed him. Claire, horrified, begged to be free, telling him she didn't want to die. Buffalo told her to submit to him and his cleansing and she would be free, and Claire's fury rose again, spitting in his face again.
She told Joe Buffalo that her friends and fellow officers would come to her rescue, and that he had no chance. She cursed more and screamed that she'd kill him herself if she got free, swearing that she'd end his rampage and that he should hope the other officers get to him first. He scoffed at her and said no one would save her, that her friends had failed her.
Joe Buffalo was disappointed in Claire's continued use of foul language and resistance, and told her this final cleansing would rid her of all her sin and then she would truly be his "White Rose" if she managed to survive. Referring to her only as "Rose" now, Buffalo produced a small bunch of flowers and held them out to Claire. He told Claire that she may be beyond his help and that this final test would prove if she was the one for him.
Buffalo shoved the flowers, a bundle of poisonous Lilies of the Valley, into Claire's mouth and forced her to swallow them. Gagging, Claire tried to puke them up immediately, but failed, and soon found her body wracked with severe abdominal pain as her body digested the flowers. She was in agony as the poison coursed through her system, her heart palpitating and struggling to maintain a rhythm. Weakened, sick, Claire lay on the basement floor delirious from the poison. Joe Buffalo stood over her as she writhed on the cold concrete, reciting various scriptures and praying fervently. Claire's only thoughts were of her friends and coworkers, even her dead lover Alex, as the poison continued to work and she slowly lost consciousness. She fought Joe's twisted mind games to the very end, and as she slipped into blackness the last thing she heard was the sound of a door splintering followed by the shouts of the Liberty City Police.
Joe Buffalo was taken into custody immediately, without incident, cuffed while continuously praying over Sgt. Everly's unconscious form. Medics rushed in after the madman was secured and hustled Claire out of the house, immediately supplying her with life-saving counteragents as she was transported to Schottler Medical Center. Doctors went to work treating Claire, helping her system purge the toxin with a blood transfusion from a fellow officer. Doctors worked overtime to restore a normal cardiac rhythm and ensure no significant damage was done to her heart. She regained consciousness quickly, ever the fighter, and began pushing to be released. The doctors were adamant that she stay 72 hours to monitor her cardiac rhythm as the poison often had lingering effects. Claire, far too stubborn to listen, managed to discharge herself against doctor's orders and went right back to SSPD to confront Joe Buffalo.
Barging into the interrogation room where Joe Buffalo had been kept the past several hours as other detectives grilled him, Claire had to be restrained as she flung herself at the man who had put her and so many others through so much trauma. Screaming that she would kill him herself if she got the chance and that he deserved to die, Claire had to be dragged from the room by her fellow officers. Claire's violent outburst shocked her friends, but they were shocked even more when Claire collapsed after her outburst. Claire had to be rushed to the hospital again, and this time was continually monitored until her heart had stabilized and her system was fully recovered from the poison.
Joe Buffalo was prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, Claire's detailed investigative work proving to be more than enough to help convict him when court came. The DA asked for life, and they got it, with Buffalo being locked up in the super-max section of the Alderney State Correctional Facility with no possibility of parole. Claire had won the battle with The Sanctuary Killer, but in the end was left with considerable scars that were both physical and mental.
Following the case Claire was left with a severe phobia of both yellow taxi cabs and flowers of any sort, but especially white ones. Her aggression also proved to be a nagging problem afterwards, with repeated combative outbursts that were very out of character for her. Claire attended therapy for some time afterward and eventually surmounted these problems after considerable time, even getting flowers tattooed on her as a way of coping with the trauma. But some part of Joe Buffalo would always linger with Claire, no matter what. She may not flinch at the sight of a yellow taxi cab or white rose anymore, but the memories still hadn't faded.
|The State Police Arc|
|Following the trauma of the Sanctuary Killer case, Claire transferred out of the LCPD to the Liberty State Police. It was hard for Claire to return to Broker following the case, and she felt a change of scenery would help reinvigorate her love for the job. Claire filled her time in the State Police with tons of patrol work, catching speeders and even going undercover to investigate the illegal racing scene. Claire honed her skill in pursuits while in the State Police and word of her driving ability spread around the state, leading to criminals becoming concerned ("Oh fuck, it's Claire") when she arrived to a scene. At one point during her career as a trooper Claire was stalked by a deranged terrorist named Greg who set bombs throughout the state, eventually blowing himself up in a cell while Claire watched.
As a sergeant Claire joined the Gangs division where she helped build a database of intel including associations, nicknames, drugs used, known hideouts, and more. Claire's friendly demeanor was instrumental in getting gangsters to let details slip. Claire liked connecting with people, no matter their background, and people opened up to her.
While in Gangs, Claire also worked extensively as an FTO. Claire found a passion in teaching those new to police-work how to handle themselves and what to do. She was a fairly relaxed teacher, balancing sternness with a friendly demeanor. She always made sure to compliment and uplift her cadets as she trained them, careful not to talk down to them or overwhelm them.
After some time in Liberty, Claire began to feel adrift and alone. She found herself yearning for the family she felt she had neglected when she stayed behind in Liberty City to hunt down her adoptive parents' killer. Years had gone by and Claire felt the distance between her and her sisters was too much, so she decided to retire to from the Liberty State Police and move to Los Santos.
Transfer to Los Santos
Following her long career in Liberty, Claire up-ended her life and traveled cross-country to reconnect with her family. After a brief stint as a PI for a now defunct agency, she soon found herself working as a Dispatcher for the Los Santos Police Dispatch. Her prior police experience served as an excellent stepping stone and she adjusted well to the new job. Claire enjoyed work as a dispatcher, but she constantly longed to get back out on the streets and patrol again. During her off-duty time, Claire worked as a PI for the DoJ and performed an undercover investigation of Lot Q that led to a big court case, for which Claire was later stabbed by members of the Lot. As a dispatcher she made many friends and re-united with an old one, John Spartan. Claire also met her future wife, Deputy Mina Price while working as a dispatcher and the two quickly fell for each other, with Claire later proposing at the site of their first date.
On March 6th, after five months in dispatch, Claire was finally called up for an interview of a lifetime. Sgt. Brittany Angel and Snr. Officer Domenic Toretti called her upstairs and grilled her for what seemed like forever. Angel and Toretti didn't go easy on here, grilling her on case law and police procedure questions while demanding she look at one or the other of them, berating her when she got it wrong. The interview was intended to be a high-pressure test, like putting a kettle on a burning hot stove. They wanted to see if Claire could handle it, and she did.
Claire came out the other side nervous and nauseated, but hopeful. Mostly. Claire's nerves and self-confidence issues got the best of her at times, and she was convinced she had flubbed the interview. On March 8th, two days later, Claire finally got the confirmation and was given a conditional job offer with the police department as a pre-academy cadet. Claire chose the BCSO in honor of her friends in the department and in search of a new type of police-work, since she has a history as a state trooper and city cop. Her call-sign, #557, she chose in honor of her sister, #457. Claire eagerly leapt to her work (and ran many laps) and soon filled every hour she could with patrols with FTOs.
Claire cruised through academy, an eager and excited student, absorbing all the knowledge she could. She was especially excited with learning the art of the PIT maneuever in this city. After three brutal days of studying, learning, and drilling, Claire graduated a police academy for the third time in her life. After academy she approached her cadet phase with the same bright-eyed eagerness, earning sign-offs and the respect of her FTOs. At one point in her cadet phase she overtook Trooper Kael Soze as primary in a 10-80, asking for permission a bit too late, and making him crash into a local. The 80 turned into a shootout and Claire performed admirably, keeping on the fleeing car and returning fire the whole time. After the chase Soze made a point to reprimand her for her mistake, but also compliment her driving.
The rest of her cadet phase passed smoothly, earning the last of her sign-offs and gaining her solo cert, the second cadet from her class to do so after Lenny Hawk. Angel let her know her final eval was scheduled for a week from then, and Claire's week as a solo cadet was filled with anticipation. Her final eval came and went and after only 9 days as a solo cadet Claire found herself promoted to full deputy and off on her journey as a cop in San Andreas.
PD Civil War
With the election of a new Sheriff on April 18th and a massive shake-up in BCSO Command, Claire's place there was suddenly in question. Kyle Pred Her sister 's boyfriend, who seemed to switch between hating her or dismissing her outright, was now the Sheriff. One bright spot was Wrangler's promotion to Captain, as the two always had a good working relationship. A member of Claire's academy class, Cletus Cornwood, was also promoted to Captain at the same time. With people transferring left and right, including her older sister Angel, Claire began to consider a switch to LSPD. One of the reasons she chose BCSO was the help set her apart from Angel and her legacy, but now her older sister was in the same department. Claire worried about still being in her older sister's shadow in the BCSO and struggled with the decision to switch for some time. Claire still had friends in the BCSO, some of whom have been considering swaps themselves, making her choice even harder. However, after consideration, Claire decided against swapping during her promotion, choosing Badge #380 in the BCSO.
The Pilbis Conspiracy
On April 24th, after being the first to arrive to the scene of a plane crash near Burger Shot, Claire found herself dragged into a massive conspiracy involving Burger Shot employees, Leslie Lingberg, and Pilbis Shonley, the man whom Claire believed was the real victim of this entire escapade.
The events began for Claire when a man named Ali Farmand hijacked an aircraft and began circling Burger Shot, and was suspected to also be behind bomb threats to the establishment. Responding to the on-going terrorist incident late, Claire found the downed plane and the bodies of both Ali and Pilbis in the canals nearby. Pilbis seemed to only be suffering from effects of inhaling water while the Ali individual was far more injured. An uninjured Mr. Lingberg was standing nearby without a real explanation for his presence, further complicating the scene. The question of who was flying the plane came up after more units arrived on scene and multiple theories were immediately put forth. Claire's first deduction was that Ali had been the pilot and that Pilbis, like he claimed when she pulled him from the water, was merely responding to the crash to offer aid. Unfortunately Mr. Lingberg and Officer Garry Berry continuously threw wrenchs into Claire's investigation of the mess with their own theories and, on Mr. Lingberg's part, what Claire suspected was outright disinformation.
After conducting numerous interviews Claire determined that someone matching Pilbis's description was seen at Burger Shot while the plane was in the air, essentially giving the man an alibi and clearing him from piloting the plane. No one Claire interviewed had seen someone matching Ali's description at Burger Shot while the plane was airborne, lending further credence to Claire's version. Unfortunately Leslie organized the Burger Shot employees to claim that Pilbis was a terrorist and often discussed his terrorist plans. With all the conflicting information, Garry Berry (who had taken over processing) decided to let both Pilbis and Ali off with warnings and let them go.  Cornwood ordered Claire and Garry to continue the investigation. Eventually Claire interrogated Pilbis after he was reported for sending photos of mushroom clouds to individuals involved in the incident. In the interrogation Pilbis and his lawyers urged Claire to charge the individuals at Burger Shot with lying to police and obstructing justice and presented her with a detailed alibi for his whereabouts, further confirming her theories. Due to the chaotic nature of the scene no charges were filed and the investigation is considered closed.
After finishing her cadet phase and being promoted to full deputy, Claire had many options before her as it came to her future in the department. Every day it seemed someone new was asking Claire what her goals were, what position she wanted, and more. Claire felt like she was being pulled in a million directions at once. A capable & experienced cop, Claire could conceivably set her sights on any type of police work she wanted, but her focus was always on Interceptors and investigative work. Interceptors, however, were something for Claire's future while investigative work was ready and waiting for her.
Claire worked with both the Major Crimes Division and Randy Wrangler when it came to investigations, but the two paths offered completely different futures in the department. Claire had misgivings about MCD due to her working relationship with members of the unit being strained, and her one good friend in the MCD Detective Daisy Dukakis all but told Claire she shouldn't join MCD because she "wasn't sure it was even gonna be a thing soon." The overall gist of Daisy's talk with Claire was that the future of MCD was in doubt in the eyes of its' own detectives. After a meeting with Lt. Thomas Metzger (the direct supervisor of the head of MCD), wherein Metzger expressed serious doubt in the ability and efficacy of the division, Claire had even stronger doubts about joining MCD.
Claire also struggled with the idea of working under Lauren Forcer in the MCD due to their tense encounters in the past and the belief Claire had that Forcer had something against her or just didn't "get" her. Claire felt that with Forcer's husband Johnny Divine as the head of MCD, any issues she had with Forcer would also be issues with Divine. With an already tense working relationship with an MCD Supervisor and a disastrous UM operation with Mina under her belt, Claire felt she had no real future working in MCD. With this in mind Claire focused her efforts on Wrangler's nascent short-term investigatory division that was focused on stings and raids.
Wrangler's division had no real name, but the work they were already doing was evidence enough for Claire. With only Wrangler as the real driving force behind the unit, Claire stepped up and volunteered to write the SOPs for it. Claire wanted to ensure that this idea would become a real investigative unit that would operate all the time, not just when Wrangler was around. By ensuring there were SOPs and pushing the division's creation herself, Claire hoped this would help make it a reality and give the PD a new tool in the fight against crime. Claire began work on the SOPs while continuing to try to prove the idea's worth on the job, generating numerous search warrants from simple traffic stops.
Despite her focus on Wrangler's style of stop-interrogate-raid, the draw of MCD continued to lure Claire in. With the Shift 2 MCD Supervisor, Lance Malton, encouraging her as well as offering advice & opportunities, Claire decided to keep the option open. After struggling to interact with Forcer, Claire turned to Malton for advice. Malton suggested that Claire just try talking to Forcer on a person-to-person basis, perhaps taking her out for drinks or maybe a pizza party. Unbeknownst to Claire, "pizza party" had sexual connotations, something she discovered after approaching Forcer and offering it. Despite the awkwardness of the encounter, Claire and Forcer managed to steer the topic back to work and Claire's interest in MCD. With a somewhat postive encounter with Forcer under her belt, Claire was much more optimistic about her future with the MCD. Knowing Wrangler's feelings on MCD, however, a choice still loomed in the future.
|Mina Price - Wife|
Mina is Claire's wife, and the two currently live together with 2 small dogs. Mina and Claire met through work, with their similar personalities and outlooks on life leading to easy chemistry between the two. Both their families have a background in law enforcement and the tragic loss associated with it. They also shared goals to keep the streets clean of the real, threatening criminals while keeping a upbeat demeanor with everyone else whenever possible. Not every situation needed an aggressive mentality and these two women understood that, operating by the adage of catching more flies with honey than vinegar.
They enjoy chill nights at home playing video games, with Claire being a recent convert to "shooty-shoots." Mina is a League player and has gotten Claire into the game also. Claire is fairly inexperienced with computers and computer games, being more of a handheld gamer when she was growing up. Because of this Mina bought Claire a Gameboy as well as a copy of Pokemon Blue, which Claire plays regularly after work.
Claire proposed to Mina at a secluded cove on the western coast of San Andreas, the site of their first date. Mina and Claire spent two years in Hawai'i during the transition, before returning to their jobs in Los Santos.
On May 2nd, Mina and Claire were legally married in a brief courthouse meeting after a murder trial by Claire's older sister Antigone. They are planning a nice ceremony for their friends & family whenever they find time in their hectic lives as police officers.
On May 12th, Mina and Claire participated in an exciting excursion at the airport thanks to Sergeant Matthew Espinoz, a pilot and flight instructor. Espinoz offered the couple a free skydive flight, to which Mina readily agreed. Claire, however, was deeply afraid of heights and didn't want any part of it. After much encouragement from ESPN and Mina, Claire finally relented. The two survived, and Claire actually enjoyed herself. So much so that they went back for a second jump, parachuting into the Blaine County Sheriff's Office to go 10-42 and end their nights.
On May 14th, Claire and Mina's son Sexton presented them with custom-made wedding bands he had personally ordered. The rings are gold pavé-set diamond wedding bands inscribed with each others' names.
On May 17th, while on an unmarked operation in the Southside, Claire and Mina were ambushed by a group of Vagos. They accosted and held up Mina, rolling up on her because they thought she was robbing houses. After Claire and Mina attempted to talk their way out of the awkward situation, the group of Vagos robbed them. After the robbery both Mina and Claire were abruptly shot by a member of the gang. Shaken and upset, the wives struggled to reconcile with what happened in their operation and collected themselves as best they could. The two were then called to a meeting at VPD by Sergeant Owen Svensen, who immediately ordered them to desk duty for their mistakes. Claire attempted to fall on her sword to save Mina, but Sgt. Svensen wasn't having it. Afterwards, Captain Lance Malton ordered them both to do bike patrol and therapy as punishment.
On June 2nd, while Claire was stuck in a civil court case with Raymond Romanov, Mina was ambushed and stabbed by serial killer Jimmy Limbs, a man the department had been investigating for his prior activites with human remains and overall creepy demeanor. Severly wounded, Mina lost a great deal of blood and spent the night in the ICU after receiving a transfusion. Claire remained by her side throughout the night, except for a brief foray to take the Challenger Interceptor Trials.
|Brittany Angel - Older Sister|
Brittany Angel is Claire's biological older sister, and also a cop by career. Brittany is a stern yet supportive sister who expects Claire to do her job well and set a good example, holding her to a high standard due to the shared blood. Claire likes to playfully refer to Brittany as "Bangel", an old childhood nickname that's a combination of her first initial and last name.
Claire was adopted as a baby and spent the majority of her childhood apart from Brittany, only coming back into contact with her estranged sisters as a young teen. When the Everlys were murdered Claire was taken in by the Angels and the sisters were finally reunited. Their differences in upbringing and age created friction and Brittany and Claire never really connected. Claire was always focused on the death of her adoptive parents and somehow finding their killer, which created more of a distance between the two sisters.
When Brittany and Claire were finally cops together in Liberty City they occasionally crossed paths despite working different beats. Claire's work hunting down drug runners led to a massive meth bust in Broker but also ended up pushing the problem into Brittany's district of Algonquin. This created tension between the two, as Brittany felt she was stuck being the older sister cleaning up her younger sister's "mess."
When Brittany moved away from Liberty City, Claire stayed behind, still focused on finding her adoptive parents' killers. This deepened the rift between the two sisters and they all but ceased communication with each other. Brittany had expected Claire to move west as well, to stay with what family they had, but Claire was still stuck in the past.
Since Claire moved to Los Santos and started working at becoming a deputy the relationship between the two has steadily improved. Brittany made sure to have no part in the decision for Claire to join PD, letting her sister stand on her own and ensure there was no conflict of interest. During her cadet phase Claire and Brittany rarely rode together, with one headache-filled day being the stand-out. When it came to Claire's final eval Brittany took full control, planning a day where the two would dress up as the other and confuse the city. With Pred tagging along, the mood of the eval threw Claire off and Brittany could tell. She paused the eval and handed her off to the man who trained her, Lieutenant Jack Ripley. Once she was confirmed to have passed her final, Brittany & Randy Wrangler planned a fake suspension and kidnapping prank for her promotion. After the whirlwind promotion, Brittany offered kind words to Claire and told her she was proud of her.
Angel and Claire have come far closer since the younger sister's promotion to full deputy, with the two now regularly having pleasant conversations instead of friction-filled encounters that usually led to arguing. Angel has even gone so far as to openly express her care and love for Claire, instead of hiding it behind walls. Angel even shows respect and admiration for Claire's performance as a deputy, hinting that she'd want her in the Personnel and Training Division once Angel determined she was ready. When the talk of a new division came up, Angel even encouraged her to write the SOPs for the division, a big deal for someone who is only a deputy. Claire never expected her relationship with her oft-distant older sister to ever grow to such a level and is especially happy to have functioning family around her again.
|Antigone Weston - Older Sister|
Antigone is Claire's older sister and Brittany Angel's identical twin. Antigone and Brittany were adopted and raised together, and the two never really had much of a relationship until Claire reunited with them in her early teens. Antigone was always the more forgiving of the two older sisters, not taking her distance as personally as Brittany. Claire likes to call Antigone by the shortened form of her name, "Anti," which has been known to confuse people.
Antigone is a judge in the Department of Justice. Antigone is the more understanding of Claire's older sisters, offering supporting words and sympathy when Angel teases or trolls Claire in her usual way. Despite her kind attitude and obvious fondness for Claire, her older sister isn't all she seems. Anti has a dark side and has threatened physical harm or even murder to anyone who hurts Claire.
Claire and Antigone don't have many chances to interact due to the elder sister's busy life as a judge, but Claire always goes out of her way to look for Anti whenever shes at the courthouse. When Claire and Mina needed to get married to open a joint savings account for their future home buying, they went to Anti first. Claire was eager to just get the certificate and plan the ceremony later, but it was a nice touch for Antigone to be the one to legally marry her and Mina.
|Sexton Hardcastle - Son|
Sexton is Claire and Mina's adopted son as well as an officer in the LSPD. Sexton was orphaned at a young age, and this commonality led to Claire adopting him, as Claire knew all too well what it was like to lose parents. Claire & Mina dote on Sexton as if he was their real son and not the same age as them. Sexton even had special wedding rings made for his parents, engraved with their names.
|Roy Armstrong - Son|
Roy is Claire and Mina's second adopted son, and also a member of the BCSO. Claire and Roy met when Claire was dispatch and Roy was EMS, with the two first forming a friendship through work. Claire was convinced Roy would make a great cop one day and pushed for him to join dispatch. Months later, once Roy had become a cadet, Claire had assumed an almost mother-like role towards him and decided to make it "official" and adopt him as her and Mina's second son.
|Demi Black - Daughter|
Demi is a new hire to the PD, although she has a very familiar voice, and it didn't take long for her to end up part of the family. This time around it was Mina who pushed for the adoption, eager to have a daughter after Claire adopted two sons. After a brief interview process to see if Demi was a good "fit" the adoption was "formalized" and she officially became a member of the Everly-Price family.
|Daisy Dukakis - Niece|
Daisy is the adopted daughter of Claire's biological older sister, Antigone West. Claire and Daisy have a close relationship and are as much friends as they are relatives. They rarely see each other much due to conflicting schedules. Daisy, among others, was one of the main people to push Claire to join BCSO.
Daisy and Claire rarely get to patrol together, but when they do they always have a good time together. Though originally drawn together by Antigone's adoption of Daisy, Claire and the red-headed deputy make good friends regardless. As patrol partners and bounce off each other well, with their complimenting attitudes causing Daisy to remark that they reminded her of Angel & Copper.  This spawned a cosplay session where Claire dressed up as Angel and Daisy dressed up as Copper.  This confused the vast majority of PD that day as well as numerous civilians.
|Kyle Pred - Sister's Boyfriend / Best Friend|
Pred is the long-term boyfriend of Claire's biological older sister Brittany, and is a former homicide detective from Baltimore who transferred to Los Santos to be with her. A notoriously crude and ill-mannered man, Pred has switched between openly hating Claire to being downright kind with her. The constant whiplash confused Claire and despite all her attempts to smooth things over with Pred and establish a détente, nothing worked. Pred always seemed dedicated to upsetting and disgusting Claire whenever he could, dropping crude comments about his sexual activities with her sister whenever the opportunity presented itself.
Pred's relationship with Claire never improved much over time, in fact the man seemed bent on not only hating her but also trying to break up her and her then-girlfriend Mina Price. Claire wasn't sure if Pred was trying to break them up to get with her, or with her then-girlfriend Mina. Pred even went so far as to try and enlist Claire's niece Daisy in his mission to break the two up.
Pred's demeanor towards Claire changed abruptly when he became Sheriff, becoming much more supportive and caring in his general attitude towards his girlfriend's little sister. Pred even began complimenting Claire and seeming to go out of his way to spend time with her and ride together. While he still occasionally insulted her and trolled her, the general demeanor change was very noticeable. About half a month into his tenure as Sheriff, Pred named Claire his "Enforcer" and often has her stand by his side at meetings. Pred even gave Claire his blessing when she volunteered to write the SOPs for a new investigative unit in the works. Over the summer of 2021 Pred and Claire's relationship slowly turned into that of two close friends, with the two often being seen chasing each other around PD like a couple of schoolyard goofballs. They'd often patrol together, with Claire serving as a mediating influence to Pred's more hare-brained schemes. In early August, after Pred accidentally started a war with the Vagos, Claire was blown up along with him when they C4'd his CVPI. Pred was seriously injured but thanks to him shielding Claire from the majority of the blast, Claire escaped major injury.
|Misa Price - Sister-in-Law|
Misa is Mina's twin sister and a paramedic by career. Misa and Claire have a friendly relationship and are always happy to run into each other during their patrols, unless one or the other is hurt of course. Misa looks remarkably similar to Mina being her twin, something Misa uses for great comedic effect against Claire. Whenever Misa wears her hair like Mina's, Claire inevitably confuses her for her wife.
|Sam Baas - Father-in-Law|
Sam is Mina's adoptive father and Claire's father-in-law by marriage. Baas has been one of Claire's more stalwart supporters during her quest to become a cop in Los Santos, and was one of three recommendations on her interest form.
Claire has stood by Baas through all his troubles in the line of duty, always supporting him even when it's an unpopular position to take. Baas was one of Claire's regular FTOs during her cadet phase and their patrols together were always a delight for Claire. Claire regularly refers to Baas as "Dad" and he has truly come to take on a fatherly role to Claire. Claire has been a source of emotional support for Baas since the marital problems with Dante, always offering him a kind word and checking up on him.
|Dante Wolf - Father-in-Law|
Dante is Mina's other adoptive father, and also a long-term supporter of Claire in her quest for PD. Dante was one of the first people who demanded Claire join the BCSO and not the LSPD.
Since her marriage to Mina Claire now calls Dante "Dad" as well, although he is more the wild and out-of-control dad compared to Baas as the level-headed dad who gives you solid advice. Whenever they rode together Dante would regularly hit on women, even while married to Baas, confusing and upsetting Claire. Claire admonished Dante whenever he acted out, but his desires couldn't be quelled, and he and Baas ended up separating. Claire is dedicated at getting the two to work out their differences, however.
Bundy is a fellow former dispatcher and an old friend of Claire from when she first joined the Los Santos Police Dispatch. Bundy and Claire hoped to be in the same academy class once their chance came, and come it did. Claire and Bundy were hired as Cadets Claire also asked Bundy to be her maid of honor in her upcoming wedding to Mina.
As former "crackhead dispatchers," Claire and Bundy have a strong bond that's persisted even through Bundy's swap from the BCSO to the LSPD when he was promoted to full officer. Claire and Bundy grew used to relying on the other during their NA dispatch shifts and it's carried over to their work as cops, with the two working well together on scenes and often being relieved to see the other when responding to a call.
Anita is a Deputy for the Blaine County Sheriff's Office and one of the first people that befriended Claire when she originally moved to Los Santos. Anita and Claire hit it off immediately with their similar outlooks on life and shared sense of humor, always easily making each other laugh. They've become close friends since, and Anita even asked Claire to be a bridesmaid in her wedding to Henri King. Unfortunately, due to train issues, Claire wasn't able to attend the wedding.
Anita was another person who influenced Claire to join the BCSO when she was given Cadet. During her cadet phase Anita was one of Claire's regular FTOs and the two jived well together out on patrol. Claire and Anita enjoy jokingly flirting with the other, including making kissy noises, all to troll Anita's husband and also friend of Claire's, Henri King.
Spartan is an old friend of Claire's, and the two went through academy together a long time ago in a previous city. Spartan moved away first and became a cop before Claire moved over herself. Their history as patrol partners and academy classmates has created a nearly unshakeable bond. They don't patrol together very often due to differing schedules and other obligations, but Spartan is always quick to troll Claire with a witty barb or teasing comment. This often leads to them chasing each other around with Claire usually tazing Spartan in response.
Jannetty and Claire became friends after many interactions during Claire's frequent trips to Pillbox, either on-duty or off. Claire asked Jannetty to be her maid of honor in her upcoming wedding to Mina, forgetting that she already asked Bundy this as well.
Jannetty was the doctor who was in charge of Claire's physical eval before she could become a cadet and has taken full credit for her "impressive physical transformation" following his "tutelage." Jannetty has said Claire went from "muffin top" to "varsity athlete" in her physical conditioning.
Jones and Claire met through interactions at MRPD when Claire was a dispatcher and Jones was working for the DoC. Jones is also from Liberty City which led to a quick friendship between the two. Jones and Claire were deputized together before the transition, getting in a massive gang fight as well as defending a prison break and hope to patrol together for real someday soon.
Fingle and Claire are ancient enemies with a long rivalry that dates back since time immemorial. Claire and Fingle have been in countless pursuits together, with Claire winning as many as she lost against the wily old man. Fingle's arrival in the city renewed their old rivalry with the promise of many chases in the future.
Claire and Fingle have encountered each other many times since the notorious getaway driver lost his driver's license. After one such pursuit, Fingle informed Claire that he refers to Everly as "Nice Claire" and Seducer as "Mean Claire." Claire has been a responding officer to MANY scenes involving Fingle in this new city and is regularly amused by how much the wily old man flabbergasts cops unfamiliar with him. "This is just Fingle," Claire has been heard saying to fellow officers, "you get used to it."
During the massive Gathering of the Dans, aka DanCon, Claire was instrumental in shooing puking Fingles out of the courthouse and was even declared "Fingle Queen" by Fingle Prime himself. 
Yuno and Claire first met when the deputy pulled Yuno over for driving a stolen car. After a brief interrogation, Claire attempted to get Yuno to declare her the "Better Claire" in exchange for a break on his punishment. Yuno refused, declaring his boss & friend Claire Seducer the "Better Claire." Claire left the exchange determined to some day get Yuno to call her the "Best Claire."
Some time later, Claire caught Yuno again, but for robbing a bank! After the heist went bad for him, Claire had him exactly where she wanted. She dangled everything she could in front of him, but Yuno resisted and in the end slyly referred to Claire as the "BEST Claire in Los Santos...." adding "..that's a police officer" under his breath.
During one robbery, Claire was called in after Yuno's friend's shot at her fellow officers. After joining the pursuit Claire was forced to shoot down Yuno after he failed to put his hands up during the foot-chase, unsure who the fleeing suspect was or if they were armed. After finding out Yuno had been the one she'd been forced to shoot, Claire was distraught. After getting him medical care and a stern talking-to, Claire had Yuno in the cells. She tried, again, to get Yuno to call her the "Better Claire" in exchange for a break on his punishment. Yuno finally broke and told Claire she was the "Best Claire in Los Santos" with Conan Clarkson as a witness.
Despite Yuno being a notorious bank robber with friends who shoot at officers, Claire has placed a special trust in the soft-hearted young man. She even went so far as to ask him to be on the look-out for a creepy, soft-spoken man that talked about perfume. Careful not to reveal any pertinent details, Claire only urged Yuno to be safe and immediately tell her if he heard anything about someone that matched the description.
In her job as a deputy Claire has come across quite a few people who know Yuno and are happy to tell Claire all about his impressive bank-hacking abilities. Claire was shocked, knowing his involvement in the robberies, but not the extent of it nor that his abilities were so widely known. Despite being reassured by others that Yuno wasn't a "shooter," Claire was still deeply concerned. An experienced cop, she knew that a life like that only led to more violence whether you wanted it or not.
Claire thinks that deep down Yuno is just a normal guy who just wants to hack and likes a thrill. Claire wishes he wouldn't roll around with such violent criminals, and would instead find some other path. Claire is convinced these people are leading Yuno down the wrong path and she wants him to turn his life around and stay clean. Claire has been taking care of "Bimbus," Yuno's dog, originally whenever he found himself in prison, but has come to be a semi-permanent caretaker of the dog. Bimbus has fun playing with Claire and Mina's dogs while they dog-sit. In a way Claire has come to see Yuno as a little brother, someone she wants to look out for. In turn, Yuno sees her as family as well, going so far as to give Claire one of the first original paintings of Bimbus as a gift. Claire has another keepsake from Yuno, an old spoon he found in prison that she keeps under lock & key with the Bimbus painting and her other cherished items.
Jay and Claire met like she meets most of those on the wrong side of the law - she busted him. After a pleasant encounter including a lot of fruitless flirting by Jay, Claire seemed to have met another "crimer" on the streets of Los Santos who was smitten with her. In their first meeting Jay asked for Claire's number, and she told him it was "911." Claire informed Jay she was engaged and therefore off the market, and Jay kept a respectful but still definitely interested demeanor with Claire.
Seducer and Everly have a rivaly that dates back to Everly's first arrival in Los Santos. The ancient rivalry began when Seducer first noticed the tweets of the "other Claire." To Seducer she was the only Claire that mattered in Los Santos and the other Claire was merely an imitation. Nearly every encounter with Seducer turns into a dispute and often a shouting match. Upon getting Yuno to tell her she was the "Best Claire," Everly now approaches every encounter with Seducer with a smug undertone.
Despite the long-standing rivalry, in May of 2021 both Claires agreed to set aside the pettiness and bury the hatchet. It remains to be seen if this will continue.
Mike and Claire have a bitter rivalry that extends back to her days as a dispatcher. Claire has been one of the few people to consistently challenge and insult Mike despite their numerous violent encounters. Mike (along with members of the "Christmas Gang" Four Tee, Mel Rickenbacker, and Daquan Dumas) once kidnapped Claire during a dispatch shift on Christmas Eve and took her to her then girlfriend Mina's home to pour gasoline everywhere, shoot her, and then set her and the house on fire.
Once becoming a deputy the rivalry didn't stop, and has only heated up, with both of them shooting at each other in multiple encounters. In one day Claire got gunned down by Mike or a member of his family at least twice. Later, towards the end of one exceptionally stressful shift, Claire and Mina were picking up their checks at the City Vault when they were ambushed by Mike, Holden D. Block, and Gibby DeStreet. Mike and Holden robbed Claire and Mina, taking their weapons, radios, money, badges, and worst of all, their newly acquired wedding rings. After robbing them, Mike and his cohorts took their guns off the couple and piled into their car. The moment Claire was free of the barrel of a gun, she dove into her car and unracked her AR. She gave Mike one warning and then opened fire, emptying her mag at both Mike and Holden. Claire retrieved her posesssions, including the rings, but Mike swore he'd steal them again one day.
