    A Steel Viper through and through, Claudia was a member of the same sibko as
    Sasha Breen.  When the Steel Viper's were added to the invading Clans by
    ilKhan Ulric Kerensky, she was a new front-line warrior in the clan, fighting in
    the same star as Sasha.  She performed admirably in skirmishes leading up to
    and including Tukayyid.  Following the fierce fighting on Tukayyid, she was in a
    position to win a Bloodname, and follow up her success on the battlefield.  
    Unfortunately, she could not do so.  She failed to win a Bloodname on
    numerous occasions, first losing to Sasha, and then to others.  Unable to
    secure a Bloodname, and with her career beginning to slow down despite her
    good codex, Claudia was given the choice of either being a second-line
    Mechwarrior guarding New Kent, or to undergo a mission to the Inner Sphere.  
    She, naturally, choose the latter, believing an assignment on New Kent would
    result in her death of old age.  She soon found that her commander on this new
    mission, was none other than her former sibkin, Sasha.  Claudia did not like the
    Strikers; she viewed them as somewhat of an abomination, a disgrace to the
    Clans, as well as the Inner Sphere.  Though she fought to her fullest, as she
    was a professional, she remained depressed and discouraged about the whole
    situation.
    Claudia was the only member of the Clan group who fell victim to the Blakists'
    poisoning of a Clan barracks' water supply in mid 3068.  Her death prompted an
    immediate investigation of all facilities on base.  After the discovery of the
    saboteurs, Blakist spies disguised as Striker crew members, Mechwarrior Borg
    and the other Clan members tortured the guilty individuals until their affiliates
    were finally discovered.  The investigation ultimately led to Star Captain Sasha
    Breen's challenge against the Blakists.  The Trial of Refusal effectively avenged
    the Steel Viper's loss of Claudia, but the risky tactic resulted in a fantastic
    victory over the Blakists' Mech unit.
