Other family members include:
- Stacie Richards step-sister. The eldest of Lisa's two daughters from her previous marriage, Stacie thinks little of Clarice other than as the nuisance little sister who used to tag after them as children. She has aspirations to be a model.
- Karen Richards step sister. The youngest of the two Richards girls, Karen also has dreams of being a model. At this stage, neither has succeeded.
Mary O'Connell met Jacob Ferguson in the Caribbean shortly after they both finished law school. Mary was working there for a human rights organization and Jacob was there on vacation from a corporate law firm. They fell in love and Mary followed him back to Ithaca, New York in a whirlwind romance. Less than two years later, they were married and had a daughter they named Clarice.
She had a typical childhood, although her parents both worked a lot and as she got older, fought a lot. They separated when she was nine and were divorced when she was 10. Their divorce devastated Clarice and she lived with her mother who was a big believer of following your heart. Doing just that, Clarice began making her own clothing and doing many crafty things.
When Clarice was 11, her father remarried instantly adding a second mother and two step-sisters to her family. Clarice was a few years younger than her step-sisters and was frequently relegated as their annoying tag-along in what they thought was a budding modelling careers. It was her step-mother that got Clarice to start dancing and she quickly took to it, joining a local team and going to local competitions.
While Clarice was at Xavier's, her mother met and married David Eddings, a mutant-phobic man in insurance. Clarice refused to speak to her for over a year after that and their relationship is still strained. She has no relationship with David.
Clarice's father, initially uncomfortable with her mutancy, has begun to deal with it and has developed a strong relationship with his daughter, taking her to look at colleges and approving her as an X-Man trainee.
Clarice essentially has no relationship with her step-sisters, although they are friendly on the rare times they see each other.
Clarice's family cut all contact with her following M-Day.
