Character Bio

Clarke Griffin photo
Clake Griffin - "Survival isn't who you are. It's who you become".

Clake Griffin
is one of the Delinquents sent to Earth to see if it is inhabitable. She is the daughter of Dr. Abigail "Abby" Griffin and Jake Griffin.

She is a headstrong, intelligent and bright girl. She is described as a natural born leader, especially by her mother; who speaks about Clarke having gotten her leadership qualities from her father. Despite all the unfairness in the world she lives in, Clarke fights for a fair chance for everyone; which was evident when she assisted Wells Jaha, even though his father - Chancellor Jaha "floated" her own father. Clarke is not only smart and inquisitive, she is determined, stubborn and headstrong - her head is always screwed on the right way and she always knows the best types of decisions to make when it comes to disagreements. Clarke is also portrayed as artistic, one of her strengths which was seen as she drew along the walls of her cell.

Clarke has blonde hair and blue eyes. She is seventeen years old and has a slim build and her hair is pulled back with a single braid.

She was imprisoned as an accessory to the crimes of her father, who was executed for attempting to release critical information regarding The Ark's swiftly deteriorating life support systems. She long blamed her father's death on Wells before realizing it was her mother who betrayed her father to the Council. Down on the Earth, she is portrayed as relatively benevolent, possessing natural leadership qualities.

Abby loves her daughter very much and is upset to see her get sent to Earth. However, Abby tried hard to keep track of Clarke while on the job.

Spoilers Ahead!!!

In Pilot, When Clarke's father found a flaw in The Ark he thought people had a right to know but the Council and Clarke's mother Abby disagree because they were afraid it would cause a panic. They were going to inform the public anyways until Wells Jaha presumably turned them in and Clarke's father was executed "floated" and Clarke was thrown into jail. It should be noted, that while Clarke was imprisoned, she wore her father's watch.

Clarke was then seen drawing a picture on a room in The Ark until she was stopped by Officers. Clarke then goes out in a shock and she see's her mother Abby. Abby tells Clarke that she will go to Earth and everything will be fine. The Officers shoot her with a shot to make her go to sleep. When she is woken up she finds herself on the Spaceship to Earth.

In Earth Kills, Clarke appears in a flashback, taking place a year prior to her landing on Earth. She is playing a game of chess with Wells, while Thelonius Jaha, Abby and Jake Griffin watch an old football game. Later on, Clarke is seen eating with Wells at school and she informs Wells of her father's discovery. Wells promises to keep Jake Griffin's discovery a secret and is originally believed to have told Chancellor Jaha about Jake's betrayal. However, it was Abby who caused her husband's death. Clarke watched as Jake, her father, was "floated"

In Murphy's Law, Abby was going to leave with Raven, but was arrested and told Raven to go alone. In Twilight's Last Gleaming, Abby learns of the survival of some of the Delinquents and is happy, believing her daughter is still alive.
