BackgroundShe first appeared in House of Hello / House of Dolls. Poppy is Jerome Clarke's younger sister. She is 12 years old, and is a first-year student at Amun Academic Boarding School where House of Anubis is set in and the same one as her brother. Poppy is friends with Mara Jaffray and was blackmailing Jerome so she could get things like money and sweets to bribe other students. Poppy is manipulative and intimidating at times, but really she is a softie deep down. She is very happy to be reunited with her father again and obviously values her friendship with Mara very much. She has a strange relationship with her older brother,but she and Jerome really do love each other in the end. In the finale of Season 2, she is happy to be in one happy family with her dad and Jerome.

Poppy is Jerome's younger sister. She is portrayed to be very manipulative so she blackmails him when she is first introduced to the series. Poppy wants her brother's help so they can find their father. Though at first it doesn't seem so but she actually seems to care for Jerome in a way. Also Poppy often calls Jerome "Gerbil". Jerome tries protecting her by lying about their dad being a criminal. She broke into his room and found his key for the locked desk beside his bed. After Mara tells Poppy about the gem and Jerome places it back in the shield Poppy and Jerome hug each other. When Jerome does not attend her father's patrol hearing, she cries, showing care for Jerome. She reads the statement in front of the judges and saves her dad from more jail time. The family reunites at the party at the end of the season, forgiving Jerome. (See Joppy)
