  • Another Claymore

    This episode talks about another Claymore: Teresa. She has the name of "Teresa of the Faint Smile" because she is so powerful she can kill Yomas without using any of her Yoma powers and also smiles while doing it. She is sent on a job to kill a bunch of Yomas in a village and does so with ease. She starts getting followed by a girl who is attracted to her for some reason. At first she rejects having her around but later decides to let her follow. The girl doesn't talk because she is still shocked of the Yomas so Teresa decides to name her Clare.
  • This episode introduces a warrior named Teresa. She was first shown to be very cold and powerful, killing Youmas without releasing any Youma powers and with a smile on her face thus gaining the title, Teresa of the Faint Smile.

    When Teresa first appeared, she was cold and distant and showed that she takes joy in terrifying humans. And she showed the same kind of treatment to a young girl whom she saved albeit just a job as she says. The girl became attached to her because she really doesn't have anyone else to look to. At first, Teresa resented it but the girl showed so much tenacity that it is hard not to be moved. In the end, bisho no Teresa allowed the girl to follow her and that's when viewers get to see the softer side of Teresa, who was thought only to be a cold-hearted monster...She was actually very attentive and loving to the little girl so much so that she decides to name the little girl, Clare, one of the other name of her half.
