First appearance

Anime Scene 24


The volcano does not appear in manga, only in the anime and Claymore DS Game. Unnamed by the characters.


A volcano north of Pieta, in northern region of Alfons. See world map.

Caldera-type volcano. Lava streams on inner walls appear to flow from outside source. Pools of lava are scattered on crater floor.[8]

Natural opening to crater interior is where Miria, Deneve and Helen, then later Jean and Raki enter.[9]


Site of the combat between Priscilla versus Clare, with Miria, Deneve and Helen later taking over for Clare.


In the battle-wrecked village of Pieta, Priscilla returns to her awakened form. This interrupts Helen's execution of Clare, who flies skyward to fight Priscilla.[10]


Round IEdit


Within a partially active volcano, Clare and Priscilla sword-fight.[11]

As Miria, Deneve and Helen rush to the volcano, they suddenly confront Galatea. Instead of fighting the warriors, Galatea directs them to the volcano.

Climbing the volcano, Deneve and Helen ask Miria why Clare is obsessed with Priscilla. Miria reveals that Clare has the flesh and blood of a warrior, instead of a Yoma. And that warrior is Teresa, who Priscilla killed.[12]


Meanwhile, Raki helps carry Jean across the winter landscape, as they follow the warriors' trail, Jean herself leaving a trail of blood.[13]

Round IIEdit

Defeat and arrivalEdit
Despite greater and greater Yoma power levels, Clare gets repeatedly beaten back by Priscilla. Clare lies crumpled in defeat.

Claymore Volcano

Claymore Volcano

Priscilla and Clare fight in volcano

But before Priscilla can kill Clare, Miria, Deneve and Helen arrive. Priscilla greets them. They attack, Miria cutting off one of Priscilla's wings.[14]
Yoma power vortexEdit

In the distance, Jean and Raki see the huge amount of Yoma power shooting up from the volcano. Jean carries Raki and races toward the volcano.[15]

Bigger surpriseEdit

Everyone is startled to see Priscilla evolving into a giant. During battle, she captures Miria, then severs the limbs of Deneve and Helen. She drops Miria to earth.[16]

Round IIIEdit

Clare sees her comrades lying unconscious. She picks herself up, having flashbacks as to why she seeks Priscilla's death. Clare awakens even further, evolving into a multi-bladed, winged being.

Jean and Raki finally reach the volcano's interior.[17]

Round IVEdit

Beginning of the endEdit

Despite Clare's increasing Yoma energy release, Priscilla still dominates the fight. She grabs Clare and drops her into the volcano interior.

But flashbacks of Teresa revive Clare, whose awakened form evolves even further. She once again challenges Priscilla, who now fails to keep up.

Priscilla, hit with multiple counterattacks, plunges inside the volcano. Priscilla reverts to her human form. As Clare approaches, Priscilla hallucinates her as Teresa.[18]

But before Clare can behead Priscilla, Raki stops her. As Clare loses control of her body, Jean intervenes and pulls Raki to safety. But Clare's mandibles penetrate Jean.

Jean, now mortally wounded, uses the last of her life force to bring Clare back to normal. In a vortex of Yoma Power, Jean is left dead, but Clare is back to normal.

Isley snatches up Priscilla. He calls for a truce and vanishes.[19]


Miria, Deneve and Helen leave Clare and Raki at the volcano. The three split up, Deneve and Helen going one way, and Miria another. Miria plans to live among the civilian population, gathering evidence against the Organization.[20]

Back on the volcano slope, Clare grieves at the grave of Jean. But Clare gets up. She asks Raki if he wants to accompany her on her journey, yet undetermined. Which he does.[21]

As Clare and Raki climb down the volcano, she stops to take one look back. Final iconic image—Teresa's ghost, standing by Jean's grave-mark, bidding goodbye.[22]
