      • The Organization link Organization: Nameless, mysterious group on Island


Unnamed by characters. Mainland unknown due to the inhabitants' belief that their island is the entire world.[2]


The Ghosts have just defeated Agatha in Rabona.[3]

Secrets revealedEdit

Miria announces the Ghosts' goal of destroying the Organization. When Galatea questions the usefulness of this, Miria reveals the results of her investigation into the Organization.[4]

She recounts her visit to a mysterious village far from Organization Headquarters. The villagers there never heard of Yoma, nor ever seen a Claymore warrior before.[5]


The warriors then hear Miria's theory—Yoma are created by the Organization.[6]

When Galatea questions this, Miria says proof is something every warrior carries—the Claymore sword. She notes that they are unbreakable and appear constructed for something much more solid than Yoma.[7]

Mainland warEdit

Miria says a greater land exists beyond the island. Where an ongoing war is occurring, among 多くの人種と多くの国[8] (many races and many countries). VIZ Media uses "many countries and many peoples."[9]

One side has non-human allies called Dragons' Descendents with impenetrable skins.[10] As a result, the Dragons' allies took the upper hand of the war. The other side, the Anti-dragon allies, is trying to develop awakened beings as a counter-weapon.[11]

Owing to the dangers of awakening, the Anti-dragon allies decided to conduct Yoma experiments away from the mainland. And the island is being used a testing site for those experiments.[12]
