Cold openEdit

Riful asks Clare if she knows the identity of the female awakened in the north. Clare refuses to answer, demanding to know who and where her male partner is. Riful offers to tell if Clare can strike Riful with her sword.[7]

Scene 046a

Clare tries to strike Riful, but Dauf blocks her move.[8]

Clare's attackEdit

Dauf tries to catch Clare, but like a fly, she darts about him. When Clare block a Yoma rod with her sword, she begins to awaken. Before she can fully awake, Galatea grabs Clare's sword and throws her down the corridor.[9]

There, Galatea restrains Clare and uses Yoma Energy Alignment and Control to bring Clare back to normal.[10]

Galatea explains that Riful was trying to trick Clare into awakening with her proffer. Galatea gambles that Riful will continue to be a spectator only. If so, then their only chance to survive is to retrieve Jean, who can drill through Dauf's armor.[11]

Galatea orders Clare to find and bring back Jean, while Galatea holds off Dauf.[12]

Jean awakenedEdit

After a search downstairs, Clare finds Jean, awakened into a butterfly form. Jean pleads to be euthanized, but Clare tries replicating Galatea's technique of realigning Yoma energy.[13]


Clare strains trying to bring Jean back—Yoma power explodes.[14]

Additional detailsEdit


  • Jean repeats the alignment technique on the awakened Clare in Pieta[15]
