First appearance

クラウディア transliterated from "Claudia," feminine version of "Claudius," from Latin claudus (lame, halting), ultimately derived from a Sabine word of unknown origin. Possibly related to Greek kolossos. Name of several Roman princesses.

With the exception of the US FUNimation dub, all other anime dubs replace the manga character Claudia with the manga Yuliana.



Has shoulder-length blonde hair, worn swept back. Anime version sometimes wears Clare's symbol.

In the non-English dubs of the anime, the warrior with the twin braids (Yuliana en-us) is called "Claudia."[13][14][15][16]


A half-moon buckle holds 2-layer spaulders on the shoulders.[17]


Typical reticent warrior in both the manga and anime.



Unknown type. Having no Organization datasheet in the "Yoma War Record," her ability and baselines are unknown.

Claudia, a lower-ranking double-digit (No. 36), is the fourth to be killed in anime version of the Battle of the North.[18] Not to be confused with the US "Yuliana," who is named "Claudia" in the Japan, France, Germany and Italy dubs. The US "Claudia" is the second to be killed.


Early life unknown.

Battle of the NorthEdit

Member of the battle group in Pieta. Assigned to Team Undine: Deneve (No. 15), Zelda (No. 24) and Yuliana (No. 43).[19]

Engagement IEdit

During the first engagement with the three scouts, the Armadillo awakened nearly destroys Team Flora. Team Undine reinforces Team Flora. Armadillo wounds Claudia with extensible quill. Undine orders wounded to retreat.[20]

Engagement IIEdit

The Northern Army invades Pieta. Manga and anime diverge here.


Claudia appears in Yuma's flashback. In the banquet hall of the Eastern Inn, Miria holds a meeting with the battle group. She tells everyone to take a half dose of suppressant. If rendered unconscious during combat, a warrior will radiate no aura, making her appear dead to both the Northern Army and Organization.[21]

Then Northern Army invades Pieta. Undine, Deneve and Zelda charge the Mannequin awakened. Yuliana missing, possible already dead during attack. Mannequin's death not shown.[22]

Later, Claudia watches Rigaldo killing the team captains. Claudia drops her sword in fright. But Rigaldo ignores her and attacks Miria instead.[23]

Claudia presumably dead by Scene 66, though not mentioned by name, nor shown by her sword as grave-mark.


Claudia attacks an awakened, who lashes out. Claudia severed torso flies backward. The original Japan dub switched Yuliana's name with Claudia's. France and Germany versions repeat this switch. FUNimation US dub switches names back in conformance to the manga.[24]


Later in Anime Scene 21, Deneve stabs the Mannequin awakened in the ribs. In a continuity error, Claudia is shown still alive. Undine leaps and beheads Mannequin as Deneve and Zelda watch.[25]
