Cold openEdit

Flora tests Clare's ability in a sword-match, the action in deadly earnest.[7]

Match testEdit

Clare holds back. But Flora insists that Clare go all out with her Quicksword against Flora's Windcutter. Flora is rethinking the team leadership formation. She needs to know Clare's true strength.[8]

Scene 055
Flora's challenge

Flora implies that Clare may even replace Flora as team captain.[9]


The confrontation continues inside the shed behind the Eastern Inn.


Deneve guesses Undine's past.[10]

Deneve then reveals her past—how a Yoma killed her parents and older sister. How afraid she was as she watched her sister being killed. And how afraid she was to die after becoming a Claymore warrior.[11]


But that a friend (possibly Helen) told her it is human to want to live.[12]

Deneve says other warriors will help Undine do what she cannot do by herself.[13]


The sword-match leaves both Flora and Clare exhausted, with neither a clear winner. Clare gives the edge to the precision of Flora's Windcutter, but Flora concedes her title of the fastest sword to Clare.[14]


After separating from Clare in Scene 34,[15] Raki reappears wandering through the wreckage of an Alfons village. He saves a young girl from falling debris. The girl bonds with him immediately.[16] An adult male finds them. He appears to be the girl's parent. He offers to take Raki home. But the man reveals the name of the girl—Priscilla.[17]
