In a world where humans coexist with sentient monsters called Yoma (妖魔?) that feed on human innards, an organization has created an order of half-human, half-yoma warriors to protect humans from the yoma, for a large fee. The people of this world have dubbed these warriors "Claymores" based on their swords. They are also referred to as "Silver Eyed Witches", based on their appearance and seemingly cold nature toward others. Each Claymore has a rank number which is based on their strength and ability. There are 47 ranks corresponding to the number of regions of the land/world.
WHERE YOU COME IN
The RP is going to take place just before the Teresa back story and continue on umtill after the end of the Anime/Manga. Your job is to fill in the blanks without changing the reasons for Clare to be on her journy. everything else however is open to change as long as it isn't too far fetched.
The way this will work is simple, you can choose to be any rank within the orginisation, however 1-5 on both the male and female list will be my choice based on your profiles.
this doesn't mean that you can't be one of the origonal characters from the anime, keeping in mind that the ones from Clares generation will be coming in at a later date.
Claymores can be considered half-Yoma (except Clare, who is one-half her original self, one half Teresa thus one quarter Yoma and Clare's right arm is half-Yoma, half-Irene).Claymores are known also for their long lasting youth.
Properly trained Claymores have a tactical advantage over Yoma, despite the Yoma's greater strength and number, as Claymores are trained in the martial arts since childhood (Extra Scene 4) and make more skilled use of their yoki (brains over brawn). Claymores also have the ability to sense the yoki of Yoma or other Claymores.
The most common and least powerful, they are the main source of revenue to the Organization. These Yoma vary in appearance in skin color and build, varying from lean to bulky but always muscular with long torsos.
They and their Flying and Awakened kin have sharp teeth and a predatory attitude to match. Most have rows of stubby spikes growing from their upper backs, with elongated limbs that end in clawed digits.
Winged, they differ from normal Yoma by their flying ability, thus presenting a greater challenge. Claymores have speared them from street-level or rooftop by hurling swords.
But if a Claymore can jump high enough and has the skill, Flying Yoma can be attacked in midair. Flying Yoma make infrequent appearances in Claymore scenes.
Outside the Organization, a third type of Yoma, known as "Voracious Eaters," are alleged to be long-lived Yoma of extreme power and appetite. But this is spin meant for public consumption.
Within the Organization itself, they are called Awakened Beings, former Claymores who have lost control of their yoki, changing into a massive Yoma-like form, and far more powerful than either Claymores and Normal Yoma. As with Normal Yoma, their appearance vary widely. Some Awakened Beings have animal shapes. Others look like enlarged Normal Yoma with specialized traits, such as Dauf.
Awakened Beings that were former No. 1 Claymores.
Abyssal Ones' form and abilities are similar to those of lesser Awakened Beings and Normal Yoma, but are vastly more powerful—strong enough to control an entire quadrant of the Island World of Claymore.
According to Dietrich, after the disaster of the Northern Campaign, the Organization began a new line of research. The result: Abyss Feeders. Using the bodies of 11 Awakened Beings, they created monsters in human form, the reverse of Yoma and Claymores, who are humans that become monsters.
The Feeders are blinded, have their mouths sewed up, and only respond to nearby movement. They are designed to hunt down and destroy Abyssal Ones, like Riful and Isley.
A unique entity, The Destroyer is the merged bodies of an Abyssal One (Luciela of the South) and Claymore (Rafaela), awakened by Clare. Deneve senses the Destroyer to be more powerful the Abyssal Ones.
But the Destroyer can be entered and controlled, as Clare does when using the Destroyer to attack Priscilla.
