Cold openEdit

Clare meets Ophelia, now a huge, serpentine awakened being. Ophelia asks about Clare's right arm—she thought she chopped it up.

Ophelia is completely unaware of her new appearance and speaks as if she still retained her human form. [6]

Renewed combatEdit

Strange hungerEdit

But this second fight is entirely unlike the first that began in Gonahl. Ophelia now desires to eat Clare's internal organs. The two clash in the forest. She takes a bite of Clare's left arm but spits it out in disgust. Ophelia hurls Clare into the lake.[7]

Revelation IEdit

As Ophelia holds Clare underwater, she sees her reflection—she is an awakened. Horrified, Ophelia releases Clare.[8]

Scene 039a
Ophelia faces Clare

Ophelia is besides herself with horror and grief.

Revelation IIEdit

Ophelia says she only wants to kill the one-horned awakened who killed Ophelia's brother. The description matches the awakened Priscilla.

Clare proceeds to chop up Ophelia's arms, after which Ophelia demands that Clare identify herself. Clare reveals that she is No. 47, who has taken on Teresa's flesh and Ilena's right arm. Clare says she intends on taking the head of Priscilla herself.[9]

But she also asks for Ophelia's forgiveness, as she also intends on taking Ophelia's soul.[10]

Additional detailsEdit


  • While Claymore warriors are hybrids, Clare is a composite of many people—currently the physical tissue of Teresa and Ilena—and later the souls of Ophelia[11] and Jean[12] and the mind of Rafaela[13]
