Gentle persona. Indulges Clare exam with calm. And in anime, with some humor.


Early life unknown.

First meetingEdit

Clare is sent on covert mission. In Holy City of Rabona, Clare and Raki visit cathedral. She contacts Vincent in baptism chamber.[12]

Later that night, she meets Vincent in cathedral tower room. He explains how priests are being murdered. But he promises to take care of Raki in case of Clare's death.[13] Afterward, she runs into Galk and Sid.[14]

Next night, Clare again meets Vincent. She suspects a "Voracious Eater" is the culprit. Vincent names Bishop Kamuri and Father Rodo as being in cathedral during the killings.[15]


After Clare is wounded by Yoma, Galk brings Clare to Vincent's bedroom, where she remains in a coma for two days.[16]

Examining the suspectsEdit

Vincent calls staff meeting. Since all were present during murders, they are now suspects. Rodo is outraged by Clare's presence. And further by Kamuri being a suspect.[17]

Clare exams each suspect, trying to find the Yoma.[18]

All suspects have Yoma scent. Finally, she exams Kamuri and Vincent. But to no avail. The situation turns ugly as Rado verbally attacks Vincent.[19]

Clare finally reaches the last possibility. If Yoma can impersonate the living, what if one impersonates the dead?[20]

Additional notesEdit

  • The village elder of Musha resembles Kamuri, but is not blind[21]
