------------------------------------------------------------
CHARACTER HISTORY
------------------------------------------------------------

EARLY YEARS:Devon and Sharise were appointed to be married from the time they were born. The arranged marriage had been devised by their parents in order to further both the pureblood bloodlines of both families, but also to increase the financial holdings and community standings of both families. Sharise's family believed in raising their daughters to be socially appropriate consorts for their future husbands and insisted that both Persephone and Claire go to Beauxbatons and not Hogwarts. Devon and Sharise raised their children with iron clad edicts and rules, but rarely had any warm personal time with any of their children. Claire seemed to be the child that craved something warmer--hugs, bedtime stories, someone who seemed to actually care. Devon and Sharise hired a nanny to raise the children. However, because Claire was the youngest and arguably the prettiest of the two girls, her parents treated her, materially, like a princess. They groomed her with rigid expectations that she was to be the jewel of the Marshall crown, and she got to make precious few choices of her own b/c propriety and convention always took first place. Ironically, the only relative she actually liked was her Aunt Zada, and despite Zada's lack of warm and fuzzy feelings or abilities, she did plant seeds in Claire's mind that it was perfectly acceptable for her to think and speak for herself. Claire learned early on what it was that Zada actually did for a living, but Claire met that revelation with apathy. She figured whoever Zada ended up eliminating was someone who undoubtedly deserved it for some reason.

HOGWARTS YEARS:At Beauxbaton's, Claire did get the opportunity to start to develop a mind of her own. She hungered for learning and for classes that challenged her thinking, like politics and philosophy. She was a huge disappointment to her family when it was discovered that she was, in fact, a talented seer. Marshalls weren't seers, and so far as Claire knows, her seers gifts make her an anomaly in her family. It was at Beauxbatons that she learned to ride horses, and she fell in love with the sport. She entered almost every contest that the school had for creative writing, and usually scored well, and gained a couple of wins. She wasn't naturally gifted at dance, but she worked long, hard hours to develop her dancing, and she learned to like it. She was exposed in her first year to Wizards' Chess, and liked the mental challenge it presented her.  Although she was generally liked, she didn't have but a couple of close friends. She preferred to stay to herself. Her professors noticed that she was a decent enough student but that she wasn't the social butterfly they needed her to be. They often had her repeat social or etiquette exercises, not because of poor marks, but rather because they wanted her to feel comfortable in being an appropriate hostess for elegant functions. She learned how to do the tasks they asked, but she never did learn to fully embrace and like it.

ADULTHOOD:Upon graduation, Claire had every intention of living in Paris and not returning to her parents' home in England. That, however, was not acceptable to her parents, and they insisted she return home. She got a job at the Daily Prophet as a proofreader for the newspaper. She was told that she would find a suitable/acceptable man to marry or it would be decided for her, just as it was for her parents. Claire did date, but the young men she was attracted to were the "bad boys" who were an antithesis for everything her parents found acceptable. Her parents grew tired of her poor choices, and they fought frequently. Claire isolated in the family estate and grew more and more bitter towards her parents. Her father started to hear rumors of Claire associating with "riff-raff" and he started to follow her when she went out. The family situation erupted when her father found her having a "liason" with a "ruffian" in one of the upstairs rooms of the Leaky Cauldron, at which time her father gave the young man a sound thrashing and a thorough bruising, and Claire was promptly returned home. Her parents arranged a marriage for her with Judah Montague because it was financially good for the Marshalls and influentially profitable for the Montagues because of the Marshall's direct connection to the D'Eath family. Her parents designed and planned and paid for the "social event of the season" by making every possible royal-like trapping for Claire's wedding. Claire hated every moment of it. She felt trapped into the marriage, but, on the other hand, Judah seemed to be the lesser of the evils compared with what she was already living with. Her family has made it abundantly clear that although Judah has children, she is expected to produce at least two pureblood heirs (or an heir and a spare) to help preserve Marshall family blood.
