Clover was an Outsider of Inferni, currently a loner.

She is "little sister" of Jehan de l'Or. Her past mirrors his -- born in Concrete Jungle and neglected by an addict mother, she was found and adopted by the wandering loner. Defensive and foul-mouthed as a necessity, Clover was reluctant to trust her "big brother" at first, but their wandering led to a deeper bond, and soon Clover found stability in Jehan's friend, Cartier Inferni, who helped provide for them.

After the Inferni and Cour des Miracles War, Clover and Jehan decided to remain with Cartier in Inferni -- a decision that not everyone agreed with. Clover was poisoned by Osprey Fleurine after a few months, though the man's treachery was punished and Clover slowly began her recovery. She acted as a defender of Inferni, tutored by Vesper, and helped to raise her "nieces and nephews," Jehan and Cartier's children.

During the Second Boreas Conflict, Clover participated in several fights. When the Inferni-Salsola War broke out, however, Clover could not protect her entire family. Cartier perished in the mansion burning, and -- disconnected, wracked with grief -- Jehan abandoned Clover and his children soon after. In spite of this Clover remained loyal to Inferni during its move. She served loyally as warrior and healer even through starvation and territory scuffles, until terrible storms and subsequent illness darkened the clan.

When Inferni disbanded and the remaining members parted ways, Clover opted to remain behind with her longtime tutor, Vesper.
