Clarice Willow, Caprica
Clarice Willow (Polly Walker)
In Caprica, the prequel series to popular sci-fi franchise Battlestar Galactica, Clarice Willow was a high priestess of Athena and the headmistress of the Athena Academy. This was merely a cover, however, as Clarice was a member (evidently in a position of leadership) of the monotheistic terrorist group known as the Soldiers of the One. It was shown in the second episode of the series that Clarice was involved in a group marriage with at least four husbands (Nestor, Tanner, Olaf, Rashawn) and three other wives (Mar-Beth, Helena, Desiree Willow) and that whilst unusual, group marriage was legal on Caprica.
Although she started off as a well-meaning monotheist, Clarice became the series’ primary antagonist beginning with episode 11, “Retribution”. Following a deception, and after the birth of Mar-Beth’s child, Clarice slashed her wife’s throat, dismembering and disposing of the corpse, then reporting Mar-Beth missing.
She ended the series avoiding any serious legal consequences for her crimes and remained free.
