Clarissa Harfouch (クラリッサ・ハルフォーフ, Kurarisa Harufoufu?) is the lieutenant of the German special force unit, Schwarzer Hase.


Clarissa has blue hair cut into an angled bob, blue eyes, and a slender body. She wears a beret and dark office clothing, with her skirt split in the center to show her legs, and an eye-patch covering her left-eye like Laura.


She is an avid fan of Japanese shojo manga, where the frequent love propose would involve a prince charming telling the princess (or heroine) "I'll take you as my bride".


  • Laura Bodewig - Her Second Lieutenant, Clarissa seems to be close to her as they share the title of Lieutenant. After Laura fell in love with Ichika, she would often call Clarissa for advice on what she should do, with all of her advice being based off of what she read in mangas.
  • Chifuyu Orimura - Clarissa seems to know her since she calls her Instructor Orimura, like Laura. Similar to Laura, Clarissa greatly admires Chifuyu and was looking forward to seeing her again when she, Maya and all the personal IS pilots were going to stop in Germany. But to her disappointment, Chifuyu was being princess carried by Ichika instead of leading the pack as she expected.

Infinite Stratos & Abilities

She currently pilots the 3rd generation IS Schwarzer Zweig. She is a very skilled pilot and fighter, having reached a draw with Maya Yamada, who is a first class IS pilot herself and was even using her personal IS to boot.


Clarissa has been working with (under) Laura and seems to have worked with Chifuyu Orimura in the past when she was the instructor in Germany.

Plot Synopsis

Episode 9: "Ocean's Eleven!"

Clarissa is first seen in the series being contacted by Laura Bodewig to ask her suggestions about swimsuits.


Quotes will be updated when available.


  • Many of Laura's friends have said Clarissa should be fired because she keeps giving Laura terribly inaccurate advice about everything. This is because she believes everything in manga is based on facts.
