Clare Dimension One

Clare Fancher was the daughter of the Office of Interchange's Diplomacy Director Roland Fancher.

According to information gathered by Dimension Two spies, when Clare lost her last baby tooth, Mr. and Mrs. Fancher placed a silver heart necklace under her pillow in place of a coin.

Mrs. Fancher made Clare’s lunch every morning when she was a child. During her lunch period, she often traded her potato crisps for candy or sweets.

Her favorite subject in school was art, more specifically, watercolors and her favorite color is pink.

She attended Berlin University of the Arts and earned a degree in architecture in 2006 or 2007.

She was introduced to future OI Deputy Director for Strategy Peter Quayle by a mutual friend from her father's office when she was 24.

They got engaged to be married shortly afterwards. Clare called off the wedding after finding a text that suggested Peter was cheating on her.

In 2013, Clare was killed by her Dimension Two counterpart. Her body was dumped with her teeth and fingers removed to avoid easy identification.

Clare Dimension Two

After being told her parents died due to The Flu, Clare was forced into the Indigo Program school in 1997.

She was taught that Dimension One was the source of the weaponized disease that almost decimated her world and killed her parents. She and her fellow students were encouraged to hate D1 and were trained to replace their counterparts there as part of a long-term plan to seek revenge for The Flu.

She was shaped in her counterpart's image in every way, including having her legs purposely broken while conscious in order to mimic an accident D1 Clare suffered in the late 1990s.

In 2013, D2 Clare came through The Crossing and spied on her other for some time before killing her and taking her place. She's been using her access to her husband's private safe and work documents to advance the Indigo plan. While they don't know her identity, OI agents refer to her as Shadow.

Clare recently gave birth to a girl. She named her "Spencer" after a boy she liked at the Indigo school. She claims having a child has changed her belief in what she is doing.
