“Way to man up, Gary. Saved by a Bandicoot.”
    —Claire, Crash Landing

Claire is a recurring Mabu in the Skylanders Academy TV show. Arguing or agreeing, she seems to be always accompanied by Gary. She can be identified by her pink dress and head bow. She is the original owner of the Hydra seen in the show, and also one of the anchors at Sky13 Action News.

Background

Personality

The Mabu frequently calls Gary out on his mistakes harshly, despite knowing he will only argue more. She is greatly offended by insults at her mother, however, and will lose all composure.

Story

Season 1

Claire makes her first appearance in My Way or the Sky Way, walking around Uncle Merle's. She and Gary are hypnotized by Kaos' spinning arrow as he absentmindedly spins it with magic and are compelled by him to eat lizard gizzards, making him realize he can force another Mabu to do his bidding.

Both Garry and Claire appear briefly in Dream Girls attending Stealth Elf's SED talk.

In Anger Mismanagement, the Skylanders accidentally take Gary's several month old reservation at Uncle Merle's dinner service, causing him to yell at Claire.

In Crash Landing, after a ill-fated attempt at vacationing in the Falling Forest, Gary and Claire are captured by Greebles and nearly eaten, until they are saved by Crash Bandicoot. Despite their rescue, they continue on arguing as they leave without thanking the heroes.

Season 2

In Spyromania, Claire recorded an interview with the Skylanders about their feats and abilities, and her careless dismissal of Spyro's abilities lead him to seeking out his special power; as well as recording Master Eon's discovery of the stolen podium for a comedy attraction. After Spyro recovered the podium, she returned to record their victory.

In Thankstaking for the Memories, Gary and Claire were tricked into attending the Doom Raiders' thankstaking dinner as their surprise 'guests of honor', unaware that the villains planned on eating them for dessert. The Mabu couple then left the diner after Gary made Claire cry when he insulted her mother's cooking, robbing the Doom Raiders of their dessert.

Claire participated in the 47th Annual Skyminister Pet Show with her pet Hydra in One Flu Over the Skylander's Nest. She bought the beast as a gift for Gary but he barely noticed them, forcing Claire to take care of the Hydra by herself. While Claire was distrated by Kaos's flirts, her Hydra was then stolen by him for Kaossandra's birthday.

In Touch of Evil, Claire reprimanded Gary for trying to wipe Malefor's worldwide broadcast out of view like his skypad.

Season 3

In Raiders of the Lost Arkus, Part 1, Gary and Claire were on a relaxing ride in their flying ship as part of their process in rekindling their relationship. Suddenly, Kaossandra's Castle (piloted by Strykore) rose from the clouds before them and knocked the Mabu couple off-course. Gary later took Claire on a relaxing fishing trip to make up for their earlier botched day-out when he accidentally reeled in Kaos's underwater prison and freed him. The evil wizard and Glumshanks then forced the two Mabu to row them to shore, an act that once again soured their relationship between Gary and Claire.
