The 7-year period between the end of Battle of the North and the Claymore survivors' journey south.


Seven survivors[]

The timeskip begins with battle group survivors arising from the ruins of Pieta, a village in the northern region of Alfons.[3]

Miria is shown being lifted by her comrades. She grieves when she realizes that only seven warriors survived, 17 warriors being killed by the Northern Army.[4]

The seven survivors are Miria, Cynthia, Deneve, Helen, Tabitha, Yuma and Clare. Referred to as "ghosts" by Rachel.[5]

What transpired[]

The seven survivors desert the Organization. They hide from the Organization's Eyes by suppressing their Yoma auras. Unknown if their suppression is related to either Full Yoma Energy Suppression or Yoma Energy Control Technique.

The group follows Miria's original plan to destroy the Organization. The Ghosts practice their abilities and techniques using only their agility, strength and sensing baselines. They do not use yoma power. These techniques fall into two categories:

1. Old techniques without Yoma power:

2. New non-Yoma power versions of old techniques:

The Ghosts replicate Teresa's tactic of fighting with skill alone, holding one's Yoma energy in reserve.

During this period of intense training, Clare searches the deserted villages of Alfons for Raki.

7-years later[]

In a ruined village attacked by Priscilla, Clare discovers an underground slave prison. As she and Yuma explore the prision, Clare finds a drawing on the wall of one of the cells. It is the twin goddesses Teresa and Clare, an outline of the statue in Hamel. Clare realizes Raki was here.[6]

Later in their cavern hideout, Clare makes known her intent to leave Alfons and go south to find Raki. Miria has a sparring match with Clare.[7]

Satisfied that Clare can handle most single-digit warriors, Miria resigns as captain of the Ghosts. She will join Clare in the journey south.[8] But everyone decides to go en masse.[9]
