Physical Appearance Edit
Claire has the long straight dark brunette hair that passes her neck and over her back, side left parted hairstyle and her father's blue eyes. And also Claire appears to resembles to her mother the most in terms of her facial features, save for her eyes, and having a pale skin complexion, which Helen claims that she are just like her father's.
She's a little bit resemblance to her ancestor, as a young child with the straight China bang front over her forehead, Isabel Sullivan, who's has a curly China blunt bang front over her forehead, who's Caroline Sullivan and Daniel Robitaille's daughter in a photo with her mother as a 8-years-old child first appears in Candyman 2: Farewell to the Flesh.
As a child, she was a very short height at the young age, she's wear the pink long sleeved undershirt, light white shirt with a teddy face front, blue coat, blue jeans, white socks, and black-white tennis shoes.
She have the very slim figure build and average height with a slender frame yet athletic physique as she's grew up as a teenager in the third film. Having a scar on her left arm by Candyman like Michael did in her childhood.
As a teenager in the third film, she's usually wearing the white-blue striped shirt, dark blue hooded zip-up jacket, blue boyfriend jeans, black baseball cap and black-white Nike sneakers as a teenager.
Claire is the shy and quiet girl with kind, sweet, innocent, polite, caring and gentle personality in the movie series. As a teenager, she grew up as a very sensitive, outcast, friendly, kind, sweet, headstrong, strong-willed, thoughtful, polite and tomboyish character in Boyle Heights high school in Los Angeles, California. Claire is highly intelligent, observant and mature for her age, though also somewhat reserved and easily frightened as she is both young as well as unlearned in social interactions, having been raised in Chicago with her parents in a apartment.
She's still fearing the existence of the Candyman, that he's hunted and harmed some of her family members and friends to be haunted of her whole life because he's become the demonic serial killer to kill many innocent people after his death and being immortal, then, both Caroline Mckeever and Christina felt similar personalities to her that Candyman killed her family, and Michael Robinson was only one who's related to and just like her, because they're both have the ancestors in their families and origins of the past.
Claire is shown to be a skilled fighter, who will not hesitate to use violence to defend herself or those she cares about. It's possibly because she understands only too well that if she does not fight to protect herself, she will perish. In spite of this, Claire does not appear to be malevolent; she clearly cares for her mother, father and the rest of her family who protect her, kills only those who harm or threaten her and is ultimately a lonely and frightened girl caught up in circumstances beyond her and freed forever from being under control hypnosis by Candyman.
