|“||It's a sad truth that the people closest to us are the ones capable of causing us the most pain.||”|
— Clara Stark
Clara Stark is a main character in Horrifically Wicked Tales: HIVE Academy.
Clara Stark used to be friends with Olivia Wright and was offered the chance to join the HIVE and become a member of the Bitchettes, but she refused and became an outsider. She is a very beautiful brunette who speaks her mind and will defend others from bullies. She is not in a relationship at the start of the series.
Clara is first seen introducing herself to the newly arrived Leo Barnaby, an American , and showing him to his new home in Iris Dormitory. She is interrupted by her obnoxious roommate Theodora Memphis. She offers to take Leo on a tour of the campus, to help him find his way around. She shows him the memorial dedicated to Callista Ranza, a student who died last year, and introduces Leo to Oscar Olsson, who helps Clara point out the members of the Bitchettes, the mean girl queen bees of the school. When the popular kids throw water balloons at pledge Lavender Jensen, Clara slaps Oscar's twin brother, Oliver. She then defends Leo from Cohen's hateful haranguing. Later on, she takes Leo along with Oscar to crash Cassandra's party, where they talk all night long.
Olivia was Clara's best friend last year. However, when they were both offered bee brooches and asked to join the HIVE, Clara refused, and in the process lost her friend.
Oscar is Clara's friend, who harbors feelings for her she is unaware of.
Leo is an American transfer student whom Clara befriends when he moves into the room across the hall from her.
"Dolly" is Clara's contentious roommate who irritates Clara by stealing her stuff, and horning in on her friendship with Leo in order to flirt.
As leader of The Bitchettes, Cassandra is considered by Clara to be the ultimate bitch.
