Cold openEdit

Back into human form, Alicia corners Riful and with her Claymore sword and ruthlessly cut off Riful's arm.[6]

Round IIEdit

Dual controlsEdit

Riful senses that more than one Yoma-entity is taking turns in controlling Alicia's Yoma energy.[7] Riful is unaware of Beth's merger with a parasitic rod.[8]

Riful's tentacle attack explode the ground underneath Alicia, slowing Alicia's advance. But Alicia finally reaches Riful and cuts off Riful's leg. Riful retreats, now able to stand only with help of her tentacles.[9]


Riful cannot regenerate her missing limbs. Nor can she awaken. Alicia confronts her, but instead of attacking, Alicia struggles against awakening.[10]


Wayside fightEdit

When the awakened Beth and Priscilla meet, Beth attacks.[11]

Priscilla tears off the Claymore warrior torso on the awakened body. She drinks Beth's blood.[12]

Teresa's scentEdit

Priscilla loses interest in Beth and walks away. Priscilla's only goal is following the scent of Teresa. But Beth insists on confrontation.[13]
