- "Oh god... He can see us."
- ―Claudija Crane, after Russell Edgington sees the Fairy hideout.
Claudija Crane is a telepathic faerie on the HBO series True Blood. Played by British guest starring actress Helen Sadler, Claudija makes her debut on the episode "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" in the series' fifth season. One of seventeen sisters, including Claudia, Claudine, Claudwina and Crane, and following under the leadership of her telepathic Queen, the Queen of the Fairies, Queen Mab, Claudija possesses only one brother, the telepathic fae Claude Crane. Playing a recurring role through the series' fifth and sixth seasons, Caudija is presumed to have met an untimely demise on the episode "Save Yourself", at the end of the series' fifth season. She appears once more, in a flashback in the Season 6 episode "You're No Good".
Claudija accompanies Claude to Sookie Stackhouse's house. Claude had previously taken Sookie to the site where her parents were murdered and helped her to visualize the event. The faeries are disturbed that Sookie manifested the vampire Warlow, drawing his attention to her. They warn her that he may come after her. ("Everybody Wants to Rule the World")
Claudija is present when Russell Edgington attacks the fae sanctuary. The elder tries to fight Russell, using her photokinesis to throw Steve across the field. She accidentally hits Jason too. However, Russell is too quick for her and drains her. Having consumed her blood, he is able to see into the faeries sanctuary. He sees Sookie with the faeries and moves to attack them. ("Sunset")
Having draining the Faerie Elder, Russell can see the fae hideout and moves to attack. The Faeries use their combined power to hold him back. Sookie has to pause several times as her dwindling powers leave her unable to sustain the attack. Russell's advance is slowed by their blasts, but he believes that their light has no further effect on him. As the Faeries continue their attempt to keep him at bay, Russell is ambushed by Eric just as he is about to enter the nightclub. Eric takes advantage of the situation and manages to stake Russell bringing him the True Death, satisfying a long held lust for revenge. Steve Newlin looks on in horror as his boyfriend is staked and then runs off into the woods. The faeries are relieved to be out of immediate danger. ("Save Yourself")
