Clarice has also worked as a dominatrix at an upscale strip club but decided to leave the strip club after an incident where a library patron tried to blackmail her through knowledge of her night job 1221[6].

Clarice is single and has frequently bemoaned the difficulty in trying to find romance as an undercover domme 1642[7]. Recently she has been interested in Joshua - a book reviewer who often visits the library where she works.
