Engagement IIEdit

Manga and anime diverge here.


Matilda 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.[17]

Matilda is not seen during the second engagement.

Matilda's sword appears in graveyard.[18]


The Northern Army invades Pieta. After losing three members, versus five Claymore warriors, the Northern Army retreats.[19]

Matilda may be among the survivors in the inn lobby scene.[20]
