"The nurse was about as old as Mrs Coulter, Lyra guessed, with a brisk, blank, sensible air; she would be able to stitch a wound or change a bandage, but never tell a story."
Lyra Silvertongue's description of Sister Clara[src]

Sister Clara was a nurse at Bolvangar who showed Lyra Silvertongue around the station after her arrival.[1] Her dæmon was a little white dog.


Her role at Bolvangar was to take care of the children and assess them, particularly when they first arrived at the station. Her dæmon was notably blank and incurious.
