In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, there is no character by the name of Clea. Tyrion does encounter a Westerosi-looking prostitute in Selhorys, a town under Volantene rule. Contrary to the scene depicted in the TV series, however, Tyrion does not befriend her but does have sex with her, noticing that she just lies there, unmoving. Her back is severely scarred and her eyes look dead, indicating she was forced to become a prostitute. Too drunk to care, Tyrion retches on the carpet and has sex with her again, then leaving ashamed with himself.
