Cold openEdit

In an unnamed town, Clare uses her sensing to anticipate the moves of three attacking Yoma, whom she quickly dispatches. The Raki and the townspeople are amazed.[7]


As Clare and Raki leave town, he comments enthusiastically on how effective Clare has recently become.[8]


In the Paburo Mountains, Miria advises Deneve, Helen and Clare to hide any suspicion from the Organization that the mission was a deliberate trap. Also, to change their public image as troublemakers.[9]

But Miria further warns them to avoid engaging the top five single-digit warriors—No. 1, Alicia. No. 2 Beth. No. 3, Galatea. No. 4, Ophelia. And No. 5, Rafaela.[10]

The four comrades touch swords, promising to survive and meet again.[11]

Flash forward to presentEdit

Clare has her routine night meeting with Rubel. He comments on how well-behaved Clare has been lately. He assigns her to the Gonahl hunt. The target is a Former Single-digit warrior.[12]

End of the continentEdit

After traveling to the north coast of Lautrec, Clare and Raki finally reach Gonahl. There they find Ophelia waiting in the plaza of the ruined city.[13]

But Ophelia suspects Clare is awakened. She grabs Clare from behind and penetrates Clare's stigma with her fingers. She tastes Clare's blood and confirms Clare's awakening.[14]

But Raki attacks Ophelia with his Rabona sword, wounding her in the arm. He threatens to run her through. But Ophelia gratuitously tastes her blood and offers Raki a chance to be bathed in his own.[15]

Additional detailsEdit


  • Raki notes that Galk gave him the Rabona sword,[16] which is only shown in the anime
  • Despite reaching "the end of the continent," Clare will later say she is escaping Ophelia by traveling "due north,"[17] which would put her physically in the ocean according to the world map
