Claire Bonnington
At 24, Claire is completing graduate studies at Cambridge. Though a bit shorter and a little curvier than is strictly stylish these days, she is an attractive young woman who sports a fetching bob and follows the latest fashions -- when not dirtying her hands on a dig. Although quite competent in the classroom and in the field, she is often out and about with the Bright Young Things of the Cambridge set.

Her voice is friendly and bright, with the 'Morningside' accent that denotes the Edinburgh upper crust and the diction of an educated person. That is, until she gets enthusiastic or angry, then she sometimes slips into a rougher sort of Scots, even lapsing into Gaelic occasionally.
