Clare Beddor was a mortal girl who lived in Feyre's Village. She befriended both Feyre and Tomas Mandray. When Rhysand visits the Spring Court and asks Feyre for her name, she lies and tells him that her name is 'Clare Beddor'. Rhysand being able to read Feyre's weak mortal mind he knows that she gave the wrong name, but gives it to Amarantha anyway.
Once Amarantha hears the name, she burns down Clare's house (as well as her family) and tortures Clare inflicting many long burns and eventually killing her, believing Clare to be Feyre.
Rhysand and Tamlin are both present during this event. Rhysand later tells Feyre that during this torture he 'held' Clare's mind stopping her from feeling the pain and prompting her to 'scream at the right times'.
Feyre sees Clare's naked body nailed up Under the Mountain.
When Rhysand tells Feyre the truth behind what happened Under the Mountain, he reveals that he controlled Clare's mind while she was being tortured, blocking all pain and telling her when to scream. After a while he simply broke her mind, killing her. He claims she never felt any pain throughout the ordeal.
- The name Clare is Medieval English form of Clara. This is also the name of an Irish county, which was originally named for the Norman invader Richard de Clare (known as Strongbow), whose surname was derived from the name of an English river.
