Easily angered. Outraged that Vincent brought Clare to cathedral. And suspecting Bishop Kamuri to be a Yoma.


Early life unknown.

First meetingEdit

Clare is sent on covert mission. In Holy City of Rabona, Clare and Raki visit the cathedral. She makes first contact with Father Vincent in the baptism chamber.

Later at night, Clare meets Vincent in a cathedral tower room. He explains how priests are being murdered. Before leaving, she asks him to take care of Raki should she be killed. He consents.[8]


Later in the baptismal room, Clare again meets Vincent. She suspects a "Voracious Eater" is the culprit. Vincent names Crown and his assistant, Rodo, as being in the cathedral during killings.[9]


After Clare is wounded by the Yoma, Galk brings Clare to Vincent's bedroom,[10] where she remains comatose. With Raki at her bedside, she regains consciousness after a 2-day coma.[11]

Examining the suspectsEdit

Cathedral staff have surprise meeting. Despite Father Rodo's protests, Clare, not fully recovered from her injuries, exams each suspect—including Bishop Kamuri and even Vincent—but everyone proves human. Yet all have a Yoma scent.[12] The situation turns ugly as Rado verbally attacks Vincent.

Clare finally reaches the last possibility. If Yoma can impersonate the living, what if one impersonates the dead?[13]
