Claude is a raccoon, like Timothy Raccoon, but Claude wears a dark green polo shirt.
Claude tries to be the best in the school but comes off arrogantly in some cases. Because of this, there is some rivalry between him and Timothy. For unexplained reasons, his mother does not appear at any point in the series, but his father is a tennis player. He used to have a fear of water, but he soon got rid of that fear when Timothy secretly taught him how to swim, in which Claude credits Timothy.
