Clada was one of the apprentices who studied under their master at the Beacon of Hope. She appears to be religious, hinted at a quote of hers "By the Gods", when she discovered Shora having been murdered.
Clada was taught martial arts and weapon practice by the same master as Cale'anon, Notan and two other elves. The master was often focusing his training on Cale'anon, and made the others team up against him. Throughout the years this method paid off for Cale'anon. Clada later noted that although she never was her master's favourite pupil, she was his best.
Upon learning that their master killed Shora to ensure that Cale'anon would not return, she, Notan and a third apprentice attacked their master. Clada eventually killed him with a broomstick. They burned down the Beacon of Hope and left to find Cale'anon and tell him the truth about Shora. They arrived in Nestorep and were seized when speaking of Cale'anon, but they defeated the guards, learned of Cale'anon's Warlock friend and continued their quest to find him.
