- Edited the spoiler-free description of Clarisse McClellan: Clarisse is a seventeen year old girl who behaves differently from other people and makes Montag think differently. Clarisse McClellan displays every trait Mildred does not, in that she is outgoing, naturally cheerful, unorthodox, and
intuitive. She serves as the wake-up call for Montag by posing the question “Why?” to him as well as asking if he is happy. She is unpopular among peers and disliked by teachers for (as Captain Beatty puts it) asking why instead of how and focusing on nature rather than on technology.
