History

Previous to joining the Chicago Firefighters’ shadows, Clare Mccall worked as a librarian at Lake Clalumet Harbor Elementary School in Chicago, Illinois. After hearing the Call, she began to head the Chicago Fire Department Data, Archives, and News Group (known internally as DANG).

Mccall’s accomplishments with DANG include digitizing a large number of Firefighters records and memorabilia from various points in city history. These records are available online to the public in a highly corrupted format due to ILB anti-information filters.

Like all of us, she is from Chicago. Their jersey number is 363.

Appearance

Official records, videos, and photographs show Mccall as a heavyset Black/white biracial woman who moves assisted by a cane. However, a number of wander-prone fans have reportedly seen a ghastly skeletal figure matching Mccall’s proportions in the basements and back hallways of the Firehouse. These reports are corroborated by a number of rumors which circulated among Lake Clalumet Harbor Elementary School students at the time of Mccall’s employment mentioning the, “super freaky skeleton lady librarian.”

When asked about these rumors, Mccall laughed and replied, “If working with information has taught me anything, it’s that people love to tell stories.” When then asked about her subscription to Skeleton People Monthly, a magazine marketed towards living skeletons, Mccall once again laughed, then silently left the room.

Movement From Shadows

In an interview with GlQ Magazine following the season 19 election, teammate Lou Roseheart described Mccall’s surprise to be moved to the Firefighters’ rotation. “She was shocked. I mean, she signed the ILB contracts, but when you’ve been working backstage for, what, 19 seasons? Yeah. That’s a big adjustment. They’ve been a lot of fun to train with, though, and our rotation is as close as it’s ever been.” In contrast, Firefighters pitcher Conrad Twelve responded to the movement by saying, “Really? Clare? As in Clare Mccall? You’re kidding,” adding that ze would, “spare the details,” of their, “beef.”
