Kinder than stern appearance suggests.



Unknown type. Zelda being a defensive type is fanfiction and forum speculation. Having no Organization datasheet in the "Yoma War Record," her ability and baselines are unknown.

Battle of the NorthEdit

Engagement IEdit

During the first engagement with the three scouts, the Armadillo awakened decimates Team Flora. Team Undine reinforces Team Flora. Zelda avoids the extensible quill attack.[17]

Engagement IIEdit

Manga and anime diverge here.


Zelda appears in Yuma's flashback. In the banquet hall of the Eastern Inn, Miria holds a meeting with the battle group. She tells everyone to take a half dose of suppressant. If rendered unconscious during combat, a warrior will radiate no aura, making her appear dead to both the Northern Army and Organization.[18]

The Northern Army invades Pieta.[19] Zelda witnesses Rigaldo killing the team captains.[20]

Zelda last appears in the final combat scene, surrounded by Northern Army.[21]

Zelda is presumably dead by Scene 66, though not mentioned by name, nor shown by her sword as grave-mark.


The Northern Army invades Pieta. After losing three members, versus five Claymore warriors, the Northern Army retreats. Rigaldo sequence similar to manga.[22]

Zelda appears among the survivors in the inn lobby scene.[23]
