From "Yoma War Record II."[16]

Early life unknown.

Hilda's huntEdit

Daytime in unknown locale. The leader of a hunt, Hilda, compliments Miria on her performance. Hilda vows to "team up together again as single-digit warriors."[17]


Another day. From afar, a Man in Black observes Miria destroy a Yoma pack.[18]

He notes Miria's "Phantom" technique. Also watching is warrior No. 4, Ophelia. Though part of the hunt, she refuses to participate as no awakened being is present.[19]

Ophelia's planEdit

The manga and anime diverge here.


Two versionsEdit

There are two manga versions. The earlier version has Miria leading the hunt. In this version, Ophelia is not a hunt member. When Miria nearly kills the awakened Hilda and discovers Hilda's identity, Miria nearly awakens herself. Ophelia comes out of nowhere and waits eagerly for Miria to awaken so she can fight and kill Miria.

In the later manga version in Extra Scene 2, Miria is now part of a hunt led by Ophelia, who speaks of a warrior who gave Ophelia a black card. But instead of giving it to the unnamed recipient, Ophelia tore it up.[20]


On a mountain, the party engages the awakened being, mummy-like with tape-shaped tentacles. The awakened acts strangely passive. Ophelia disables the awakened. Miria finally beheads it, while noting the awakened's suppressed Yoma aura. Miria now realizes the awakened's identity—Hilda.[21]

Miria realizes that Hilda allowed herself to be killed, echoing Hilda's earlier words "to team up together again..." In her grief, Miria awakens herself, with Ophelia waiting to kill her.[22]


In anime version, Miria leads the hunt as in the earlier manga version. Again, after nearly killing Hilda, who then dies, Miria awakens. Ophelia, who is not part of the hunt, comes out of nowhere and waits for Miria to awaken so she can fight and kill Miria.[23]

7-year timeskipEdit

After the Ghosts leave Alfons, Helen finds Hilda's sword one rainy night. The next morning, back on the same mountain where Hilda died, Miria plants the sword as a grave-mark. She speaks to Hilda's spirit, asking her to join Miria, the and fallen warriors of Pieta.[24]


In Rabona, Miria paralyzes Tabitha, then puts on her old Claymore uniform and leaves. Miria journeys to Organization Headquarters, where she paralyzes the entire warrior contingent. But during her combat with the Twin Trainees, an anti-Claymore warrior, Rafutera, uses Yoma power harmonization to cause Miria to hallucinate her old friend Hilda.

Scene 107a
"Hilda" returns

Later, during the Rebellion, while Miria combats Hysteria, Miria reminisce about "Ophelia's plan" to kill both Hilda and herself.[25]
