Cold openEdit

Clare enters the Witch's Maw. The hallway bristles with Yoma rods. But the aura of their Yoma energy camouflages the auras of four attacking Yoma.

Clare kills three, the fourth fleeing. But a giant hand bursts through the floor and grabs the Yoma.

Round IEdit

Dauf kills the Yoma for retreating. Dauf then bursts through the floor, but the hallway constricts his movements.

Clare takes advantage and attacks, but his hide is too impenetrable. He launches Yoma rods at Clare. With two of them, he brings Clare down and smashes her leg. Dauf picks up the helpless Clare.

Round IIEdit

Surprise guestEdit

But a new visitor walks in—No. 3, Galatea. Involuntarily, Dauf drops Clare into Galatea's waiting arms. Galatea tries to leave, ignoring Dauf as he fires Yoma rods without hitting her. He finally caves-in the entrance.

Galatea instructs Clare to heal her leg, while Galatea fights Dauf. Despite all his efforts, he cannot score a single hit. Galatea cuts off his hand.

Galatea rescues Clare

Dauf screams in agony, cursing Galatea.


Riful suddenly appears. She instructs Dauf to strike Galatea with all his might. He does not miss now. Riful explains Galatea's Yoma Energy Alignment and Control, causing Dauf to veer off target. Dauf hits Galatea with a rod, bringing her down. He fires again, but Clare releases Yoma Energy.

Clare awakening

She snatches up Galatea before the rod hits. But Clare cannot revert back. She is about to behead herself, but Galatea realigns Clare's Yoma Energy and reverts her to normal. Riful explains she needs help to fight the Creature of the Abyss of the North (Isley). He met a female Awakened fitting Priscilla's description.

Clare demands the location of the "Man of the North." She makes her intents known on killing his female consort. Riful agrees to tell if Clare can land one sword blow on her. Clare tries to strike, awakening in the process. Galatea grabs Clare and stops her awakening.

Last chanceEdit

Galatea orders Clare to retrieve Jean, who has a sword technique that can penetrate Dauf's armor. Galatea will hold off Dauf in the meantime.

Downstairs, Clare finds Jean, who has awakened. Jean asks Clare to euthanize her.
