Clara Marin 
is a main character in The Shadow Diaries


Clara used to be overweight prior to CeCe's disappearance. After CeCe went missing, the group split apart but Clara and Mona stuck together and Mona helped Clara lose weight, becoming thin and popular over the summer. The newly minted queen bee, Clara, wins Homecoming Queen but is constantly reminded by Cc of her dorky days as 'Hefty Clara'. Even though Clara is one of the most popular and pretty girls at school, she is generous and kind. She is the boldest and the most outspoken of the The Liars often making snarky comments, not afraid to speak what she really thinks of a person. However she is very gullible and ends up trusting people easily. Clara is witty and sassy but also innocent, caring and thoughtful. She does everything to keep her loved ones safe from Cc. She is protective of her friends and shows her fierce side when defending them. She tends to get in trouble owing to her impulsive and rebellious nature.


  • She is the successful new "Queen Bee" after CeCe's disappearance.
