Scene 041
Clare from Memorabilia


At Organization Headquarters in the eastern region of Sutafu, the Executive meets with Rubel. The awakened body of Ophelia has been found in the mountains beyond Gonahl. The chief, Limt, asks if Clare killed Ophelia. Rubel expresses doubts about Clare's ability to do this.[10]

Executive members debate whether Clare's transplant of Teresa's flesh and blood succeeded or not.[11]

Limt orders Ermita to find Clare.[12] Ermita laconically replies, "Understood."[13]



In unnamed town (named Hamel in the anime), Clare searches for Raki. She checks in at a local inn. From up in her room, she watches the Zakol hunt leaving town.[14]

Despite Clare's suppressant, the hunt leader (Jean) detects Clare's presence. But Jean shrugs it off as her imagination.[15]

Next morningEdit

Clare gets up early. The innkeeper tells her the Claymores left for the Zakol Mountains. Clare resumes her search before they return.[16]

In town, she comes across two children arguing about a Teresa and Clare statue. They mention talking to a stranger. When Clare asks the young girl, Sister, about the stranger, Sister describes someone resembling Raki, who asked about the statue.[17]

When Sister asks who the stranger is, Clare says that he is someone very important to her and that she would risk her life to find him.


A woman screams. A fatally wounded, unnamed warrior staggers into town. As she falls, Clare catches her.[18]

Scene 041b

The warrior tells Clare that the hunt was captured. Before she dies, she realizes Clare is a sister warrior.[19]

Back to dutyEdit

Clare asks the townspeople to give the warrior a human burial. When a man warns against going to the mountains, Clare sheds her disguise.[20]
