Cold openEdit

Ilena, Sophia and Noel climb the plateau, where above the combat rages between Teresa and the awakening Priscilla.[5]

Losing her mindEdit

Using only 10% Yoma power, Teresa temporarily defeats Priscilla.[6]

Scene 023a

Priscilla remembers how her Yoma-infected father killed her mother, brother and sister. As the father was eating Priscilla's sister, Priscilla crept up from behind and cut off his head.[7]

Final fateEdit

Priscilla pleads to be executed, but Teresa hesitates too long. Priscilla cuts off Teresa's hands, then beheads her. The headless body collapses. Clare and the purge team watch in horror.[8]


Priscilla is almost fully awakened.[9]

Additional detailsEdit


  • Priscilla thinks she is becoming a Yoma and appears unaware of awakened beings
