EtymologyEdit

オルセー transliterates from "Orsay." May allude to the Musée d'Orsay Speaker of France.

"Orsay" may derive from the Norman village of Arcy, itself deriving from the Gallic elements ars (bear) and the suffix "-acum" (a settlement). Or from the Norman village of Orsai, which derives from the Latin name Orcius.

AppearanceEdit

Wears a monk's cowl, with only his face exposed. Of indeterminate age.[9] Sometimes depicted with engorged veins on his face, similar to Yoma and Claymore warriors awakening. Possibly not fully human and part Yoma.[10]

PersonalityEdit

Stern, parental demeanor. Repeatedly warns Teresa to behave herself.

HistoryEdit

Early life unknown.

RosemaryEdit

Orsay sends Teresa to Godar Hill on a black card mission, where she is to euthanize the former No. 1, Rosemary.[11]

When Orsay sees Teresa's disheveled state on her return, he asks if Rosemary awoke. Appears ambivalent with Teresa's jocular response that Rosemary did not awaken and that Yoma damaged her uniform.[12]

TeoEdit

After completing an assignment in unnamed village, Teresa meets Orsay on outskirts of town. He cautions her not to spread rumors of Yoma being sent by the Organization to punish non-paying villages. He gives a new assignment—the village of Teo.[13]

RokutEdit

Teresa executes a bandit gang in the village of Rokut, breaking a cardinal rule of the Organization—never kill humans. [14]

From a hilltop (a roof in the anime), Orsay witnesses everything.[15]

Later on a desert plain, Teresa is surrounded by a purge team. When Orsay refuses to reveal Clare's fate, Teresa paralyzes the warriors. Then leaves with Clare.[16]

Orsay orders warriors No. 2–5 to find and purge Teresa.[17]
