Just how many times had Claire led her forces into battle against the savage tribe in that treacherous and barren land? In truth, she had never had the time to comprehend how if she were a slave, she would have been spared witnessing such horrors of combat. Atop her fearsome steed, Claire uttered but a single prayer each time she swung her blade. "Please, gods, protect me. Even if after this I am made a slave, I do not wish to die here."
Claire or Clair is a French variant of feminine name Clara of Latin origin; the meaning is "bright, clear, famous". The name was traditionally considered male, specifically when spelled Clair; however, it is now commonly used as a female name and is usually spelled Claire.
A wyvern, sometimes spelled wivern, is a legendary winged creature with a dragon's head, which may be said to breathe fire or possess a venomous bite, a reptilian body, two legs (sometimes none), and a barbed tail. A sea-dwelling variant, termed the sea-wyvern, has a fish tail in place of a barbed dragon's tail.
