Cold openEdit

In the baptismal hall, the Voracious Eater, Galk and Sid are all surprised by the sudden appearance of Clare's Claymore sword.[7]


Clare's trapEdit

With Galk's sword, the Yoma charges Clare and strikes. Through acrobatic maneuvers, she avoids his blade. In the ensuing sword-fight, the two exchange strikes and slashes.[8]

Then the Yoma shoots out his extensible claws. Clare dodges the claws while cutting a groove in the floor. When the claws get stuck in the groove, Clare cuts off the Yoma's arm.[9]

False victoryEdit

But the Yoma now realizes that Clare is weakening. Also, she missed his head and amputated his arm instead. Claws from his remaining arm pierce Clare. He raises Clare to the ceiling, then hurls her into the floor.[10]



Galk tries to rescue Clare, but two claws pierce his armor. Sid retrieves the sword and throws it to Galk, who cuts free himself and Clare. Sid tries to attack the Yoma, but the claws now pierce his armor.[11]

Galk's gambitEdit

Inexplicably, Galk charges the Yoma, tricking the Yoma to use the claws on him. The claws now caught in Galk's armor, Clare cut off the Yoma's other arm.[12]

Scene 010a
Galk's gambit

Now armless, the Yoma "walks" into Clare's sword, trying to pull it away with his torso. Clare realizes she has to destroy the Yoma's head. She awakens and with her new found strength, she strikes the Yoma and bisects him in two.[13]
