Claire Rondo is a member of the ISPV 7 Space Station's Control Section.



She was born in the impoverished South American nation of El Tanika on July 17 and moved to the United States where she was raised from a young age.[1]


In May, she achieved grade 1 on her secretarial test.[1]


In April, she acquired her aerospace special communications license.[1]


In March, she graduated from Columbia State University School of General Studies.[1]

In April, she joined the Technora Corporation's 2nd division and was assigned to the Aerospace Section on the ISPV 7.[1] Here, she would meet her new friends with Hachimaki and Kho Cheng-Shin. At one time she was even Hachimaki's girlfriend, however, they broke up.


In March, she acquired her special EVA skills license. In September, she got her Masters in Business Administration from Columbia Business School.[1]


She eventually developed a fateful friendship with Hakim, of the Orbital Security Agency and later, a Jupiter Mission candidate.

Gigalt gave her a nickname too: "The Swan". He gave his reasoning for this nickname to Tanabe: Claire's personality is, on the surface, serene and relaxed. But below the surface, she is working (paddling) very hard just to keep pace with the world around her. In this way, Claire's career-driven personality is well described, very penetratingly by Gigalt.
