Claymore – Chapter 84

The Bewitching Ambassador

Rubel is turning out to be a much more interesting character than first anticipated.

Brief Summary

Moving to another more secluded place, Clare introduced Rubel to Cynthia and Uma. They got straight to business, with her former retainer revealing what the Organization is trying to do… Recover their number 6 Claymore, Renee.

Clare asked Rubel if he knew what Riful was after and he did. He knew that the Abyssal one is trying to revive the remains of Raphaela, their former number 5 who was tasked to kill her awakened sister.

Meanwhile, Riful is continuing her experiment. However, her captive is unable to awaken the sisters since Renee’s too disturbed by her lack of limbs.

Acquiescing to the Claymore’s needs, Riful allowed her regeneration but Dauf was still unsure, not trusting Renee in the slightest.

But at the same time, Renee’s still trying to awaken Raphaela and Luciela but her consciousness was utterly destroyed.

Renee realized just how bad the situation was. If she was successful, there would be a large-scale. Needless to say, she needs her legs back to escape should that happen.

Back to Clare, Rubel also confessed to being Miria’s informant.

Though Rubel isn’t with the Organization, Clare knows that he isn’t on their side either, pointing out that he’s the one that tried to kill them in their half-awakened state.

And in the end, Clare realizes that Rubel is trying to do… He’s trying to kill them off to achieve a greater victory for his mainland nation.

Impressions

Whaaaaaa?!

Maybe the translation’s a bit confusing but Clare’s conclusion seems a bit off. I suppose Rubel’s trying to get rid of any wild factors that might ruin his plans to take down the Organization. By letting Clare and the others know about Riful, he knows that the seven would be forced back into the fray that they cannot win.

As for Renee, I think her time’s almost up. Even though she knows what’s going to happen if that thing reawakens, I think Dauf will keep his promise and destroy her before she gets a chance to escape. However, Renee’s reaction to her destroyed consciousness indicates that Riful might not be the victor in the upcoming battle.

Somehow, Clare’s search for Raki is getting backseated by all this development. Not sure if I’ll like it. Action scenes are always good and Raki has loli-Priscilla anyways. But with so much hype from his reappearance, I expected more development on his end…

  1. They can’t kill off Dauf! That means Renee will probably die trying to escape.

  2. I agree though more for Renee being such a minor character. Unimportant characters are almost guaranteed to be the first killed off…
