Original name

妖力同調[6] Youryoku Dōchō Speaker (yoma power harmonization)[7]




Align one's Yoma power with target, blurring target's vision. Then amplify target's emotions into hallucination





Associated technique



That ability is using Yoma power harmonization to control the senses.[8]

First appearance

Scene 107



Rafutera's ability is actually unnamed in the original Japanese text and is only described. An English-language online scanlation adds to the confusion by naming the ability with the result of this ability.

妖力同調 (Yoma power harmonization) describes the actual ability. 感覚支配 (sensory control) is result.[9] 妖力同調 is actually a generic description rather than a true proper name, as the French and Spanish translations suggest.

その能力とは妖力同調による感覚支配[10] can be translated as "The ability is sensory control by Yoma power alignment," and refers to "sensory control" as the result of "Yoma power alignment"

感覚支配 (sensory control)—the end product—is often thought to be the ability itself. The scanlation phrase "Sensory Control" is not used by VIZ Media.

Controlled AwakeningEdit

妖力同調 is also used as a generic description for Controlled Awakening. "Yoma power harmonization" is used in the VIZ Media translation to describe Controlled Awakening ("Soul Link" in most English-language scanlations).


Rafutera's sensing baseline enables her ability: aligns one's Yoma power with the target's. Then take control of target's frequency. Once the target's Yoma power is entrained, the target's vision turns hazy.[11]

Rafutera then probes the target's mind and amplifies the target's deepest feelings. Hallucination (sensory control) results. Target no longer senses actual environment.[12]

Ability resembles Alignment, but control of mental rather than physical movement is goal. Both abilities spelled with 同調, which can be translated as "entrainment," "alignment," "tuning," etc.


Phantom invasionEdit


Miria look upon the unconscious warriors she wounded. Audrey and Rachel appear, ready to attack. But Miria cuts them down.[13]


Identical Twin Trainees (tweens) challenge Miria. Like Alicia and Beth, they use a form of Controlled Awakening. But the Twins can switch roles back and forth. Miria holds her own in combat, trying not to harm Twins.[14]

Trump CardEdit

Warrior No. 10, Rafutera, watches fight. On command, she begins Yoma power harmonization, aligning her Yoma power with Miria's.[15]

Miria's vision blurs. Rafutera probes Miria's mind and amplifies Miria's deepest feelings. Miria hallucinates the Twin as Hilda. Miria refuses to fight back, despite the sword blows. Finally the Twin impales her sword into Miria's abdomen.[16]

The other warriors revive and surround Miria, now on her knees. They cut her down.[17]


During the Claymore Rebellion, Limt "court-martials" Rafutera. She is wounded and arrested.[18]

Later, Raki frees her from her guard escort. She entrains Cassandra's mind, making her sword miss Audrey.[19]
