- People Puppets: Clara likes doing this to people with her abilities. It is often how she gets out of sticky situations.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: A lot of what Clara does is to earn her father's — a five star general — respect. Yes, despite the fact that she's 40, she still has daddy issues. She also has turned around and become rather like her father to the majority of the agents she deals with, so they will never know her nicer traits.
