Cold openEdit

In the baptismal hall, as Raki waits for Clare. Raki is unaware of the Voracious Eater rising from a saint's coffin. As the creature shapeshifts, he expands from a skeletal mummy into a full-muscled Yoma.[6]


Clare arrivesEdit

Raki is taken by surprise, then hurled across the hall. But before the Yoma can attack Raki, a thrown knife pierces the Yoma's arm—Clare has arrived. She orders Raki to flee, but he refuses.[7]

Extensible claws attack Clare and Raki. In avoidance of the claws, the two are separated. The Yoma uses this opportunity to attack Raki, but Galk suddenly runs interference with his sword. Sid hits the Yoma's head with thrown knives. Now the two guards and Clare attack the Yoma from all sides. But the Yoma beats them back.[8]

The Yoma seizes Galk's sword and attacks Clare, who is put on the defensive with only her knife to block the sword blows. Little progress is made, till Raki tells Galk to give Clare the goddess statue.[9]


Galk hurls the statue over the Yoma to Clare. She unwraps it. Amused at the situation, the Yoma tries to cut through the statue and Clare in one fell swoop. Instead, the statue cracks open, revealing a Claymore sword.[10]
