Larger version of the common Yoma.


Unknown type and ability.

Displays a high strength baseline, with the associated high shapeshifting ability. The Yoma impersonates the mummified relics of a saint. The relics are displayed in a coffin inside the baptismal chamber of Rabona Cathedral.[9]


Early life as a human unknown.


Rubel sends Clare on covert assignment to Holy City of Rabona. Clare was apparently chosen by Organization due to Raki, who will play role of Clare's younger brother.[10]

In a prearranged meeting, Clare meet Father Vincent at the cathedral.[11] Later they have a night meeting in a belfry tower room. Vincent relate the killings inside the cathedral.[12]

Returning to the inn, Clare runs into interference from two guards, Galk and Sid. But Clare escapes.[13]

After two more murders, Clare suspects the Yoma is a "Voracious Eater."[14]


On her way to the cathedral, Clare again fights Galk and Sid. But someone screams from inside the cathedral.[15] Clare rushes inside and finds a body. Then the Yoma attacks from behind.[16]

Scene 007
Impaled by the Yoma

She saves the lives of Sid, then Galk, but is impaled and grievously wounded. Despite Sid's protests, Galk picks up Clare's body and takes her to Father Vincent's bedroom, where she lies comatose for two days.[17]

When she recovers, makes a request of Father Vincent. There is an emergency meeting of all the cathedral staff in the great hall. There Clare makes her surprise appearance. She examines everyone but discovers everyone present is human.[18]

Clare realizes the Yoma could be a corpse in baptismal chamber. She rushes there to find the Yoma revived and threatening Raki.[19]


In the baptismal chamber, the Yoma, posing as a corpse, rises from a coffin. He attacks Raki, but Clare arrives in time. Galk and Sid then arrive and the three fight the Yoma.[20]

The Yoma takes Galk's sword and fights Clare, armed only with knives.[21]


Raki gives Galk a statue, which Galk throws to Clare. When the Yoma strikes the statue with the sword, the statue breaks apart, revealing a Claymore sword.[22]

Clare's secret

Clare cuts off the Yoma's arm. But the Yoma still holds off his attackers with his extensible claws.[23]

Galk's stratagemEdit

Galk inexplicably charges the Yoma, who pierces Galk's body. Claws caught in Galk's armor, Galk gives the signal—Clare attacks. She cuts off the Yoma's other arm. Then cuts the Yoma in two.[24]


Later, Rubel tells Clare that the Yoma in Rabona was simply an above average Yoma, not a Voracious Eater or Awakened Being.[25]
