EtymologyEdit

ラクロア transliterates from "Lacroix," a possible fore-clipped version of "Delacroix," which alludes to French Romantic painter, Eugene Delacroix (1798–1863).

DescriptionEdit

East-most town in western region of Lautrec. In vicinity of Toulouse border. After crossing border, Clare calls it "the nearest town in the west."[8] See world map for approximate location.

Village has a rural south of France style, with Scottish medieval and renaissance Tuscan details.

HistoryEdit

Village where Clare, Cynthia and Yuma search for an awakened being. But they also run into the Lacroix mission, a search and rescue team looking for Renée.[9]

Scene 083a
Searching for Renée

Yuma knocks unconscious three warriors and two Men in Black, while Clare and Cynthia take on the Awakened, which tries to escape as a Winged Yoma-like creature.[10]

After Clare and Cynthia kill the awakened, they discover that Rubel witnessed everything.[11]

Egged on by Rubel's story of Rafaela and Renée being captured by Riful, the three Ghosts journey to the Witch's Maw II, northeast of Ticelli.[12]

Additional detailsEdit

NotesEdit

  • "Lacroix," French for "the cross," resembles land formation Clare, Cynthia and Uma see before crossing Toulouse border.[13]
  • VIZ edition of Scene 83 has Rubel referring to Lacroix as "Rabona."[14] Shueisha edition makes no reference to Rabona.[15]
  • In the village, Cynthia, Yuma and Clare being able to hide their silver eyes without aura suppressant is a continuity issue that occurs throughout the Claymore series
