Clare arrives at a cave inhabited by two Awakened Beings: the "Abyssal One" known as Riful of the West, and her lover and protector Dauf. In her confrontation with Dauf, Clare is rescued by Galatea. While trying to fight Dauf again, Clare surpasses her limit and nearly Awakens, but she is pulled back at last second by Galatea's Yoki Synchronization technique. They then come to learn of a secret arms race between the three Abyssal Ones of the North, West, and South, and Riful's intentions to raise as many Awakened troops to join her side as she can before their inevitable confrontation. As Galatea buys time by distracting Dauf, Clare races to save Jean, the only Claymore capable of penetrating Dauf's heavy armour with her special Drill Sword technique.
