Veronica is Claymore No. 13 of Clare's generation. She is a defensive type.


"Veronica" is a transliteration of the Japanese "Veronika" (ベロニカ, pronounced "ve-raw-ni-kah").

"Veronica" is either thought to derive from the Late Latin "veraiconica," meaning "true image." Or the Macedonian-Greek "Pherenike" (bringer of victory).


Veronica has a heart shaped face and wears her long, pale hair in a tight ponytail, leaving no fringe at the front. She wears the standard Claymore uniform and has silver eyes.

Veronica seemed to be very calm and professional, the opposite of her bright and perky friend, Cynthia. She managed to keep her cool, even when the other Claymores were being killed by Awakened Beings. She didn't appear to mind being injured for the sake of killing her enemies, merely seeing it as her job as a defensive type Claymore to protect those who could not regenerate as well as she could. She appeared to have had a strong impact on Cynthia, whose main reason for fighting after the Northern Campaign is to avenge Veronica's death.


Veronica possesses the typical healing and regenerative abilities of a defensive Claymore.


The Northern CampaignEdit

Insectile Awakened Being

Veronica and Cynthia fighting an Awakened Being during the Northern Campaign.

Veronica was one of the 24 warriors selected to fight in the Northern Campaign. Miria made her a division captain, leading Cynthia (#14), Helen (#22), Pamela (#35) and Matilda (#41).[1]

In the first battle she and her team arrived as backup for Jean's team, which had been completely dominated by the flying Awakened Being. Jean used her Drill Sword and Helen used her stretching limbs to disarm the creature. Veronica and Cynthia then prepared to finish it off. Cynthia complained about having to be the one to get injured while attacking but Veronica explained it was only natural since they were defensive type Claymores. The pair then sliced the Awakened Being in two, killing it.

Veronica 's death

During the second battle Veronica and Cynthia both fought side by side. They were unaware of Rigardo standing in the sidelines counting the powerful opponents. He then decides to attack the team leaders and goes for Veronica first, slicing her in two before she or Cynthia can react. This makes her the first team captain to die and Rigardo's first victim in the Northern Campaign.



The two share a seemingly close friendship in the past. Right after Veronica's death, Cynthia tries to kill Rigardo. Seven years later, Veronica's death was motivation for Cynthia for revenge.
