Claudia Crane is a full-blooded telepathic faerie on the HBO original series True Blood. Played by guest starring actress Emma Greenwell, Claudia debuts on the episode "Hopeless" in the series' fifth season. A recurring character through the same season, she is one of seventeen sisters of the Crane family, which include sisters Claudine, Claudette, Claudellen and Claudwina. A dancer at the fairy nightclub Hot Wings, Claudia possesses one brother, Claude and is presumed deceased as of the Season 5 episode "Somebody That I Used to Know".
Jason brings Sookie to Hot Wings. They quiz Claude, Claudia, Claudette and Hadley inside the faerie club. Sookie asks if it's true that vampires killed her mother and father. Claude says that he only knows what Claudine told him: an Unknown Vampire ambushed their parents because he was drawn to something he smelled in the back seat of their car. In a flashback, Sookie's parents stop their car on a bridge so they don't hit a man standing in the middle of the road. The man rifles through their backseat, finding a bandage with Sookie's blood on it. Sookie angrily says that she doesn't believe Claude. She tries to manifest her photkinesis but it fails, and a group of faeries in the bar shoot their own beams at her as she screams. ("Hopeless")
Claude and Claudia tell Sookie that since she is only half-faerie, her magic is finite. They warn that if she isn't careful how she uses it, it will run out and she will no longer be faerie. Sookie is intrigued by this possibility. She later attempts to expend all of her power. ("In the Beginning")
The faeries take Sookie to the bridge where her parents were killed. The help her to connect with her mother the night she was killed to help them figure out who was responsible. She becomes her mother, watching as a vampire breaks into the car and kills her father. But then she starts seeing the event from the vampires point of view, as he kills her mother and then finds the band-aid with Sookie's blood in the backseat. Claudine shows up and drives the vampire away. Sookie is knocked off her feet (as the vampire was) and the vision ends. ("Somebody That I Used to Know")
