Dicky and symbol



Original name



Bib-like garment covering throat. Bears each individual warrior's symbol[1]




Claymore warriors

First appearance

Scene 1, Anime Scene 1

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Unnamed by the characters in the manga and anime. It resembles a dicky, though it can also be called a tuxedo or bib.

Description[edit | edit source]

A mock-turtleneck, tuxedo-like garment, with a long, rectangular, bordered flap. For trainees at the Claymore school, the flap is unmarked.

When a trainee graduates to become a warrior for the Organization, the dicky is marked with a unique symbol at the neckline. The flap is worn tucked under the buckle.[2]

Together with the Claymore sword, the dicky appears to be identical among all warriors, unlike the armor.

The Awakened Claymore of Egon is missing the dicky.[3]
