Miria and company search the Organization HQ.
So this is so-called dragon descendant...
From the vantage point in the hills, Dae is pleased with what he saw and identifies the apparition as Priscilla. Dae then asks if Rubel wants to see something interesting.
Miria, Helen and Deneve venture into Organization HQ and find the main hall to be completely empty. The warriors had met with Raki earlier and Raki stated that he and the trainees didn't encounter any enemies midway through their escape. Miria wonders if the Organization had planned to abandon the base once the three resurrected no. 1s had awakened. Miria tells her comrades to continue the search and kill any Organization people they find. Once Helen and Deneve had split up from Miria, Miria pries open a piece of stone on the wall to reveal a secret pathway. Miria follows the stairs down to a lab where a giant monster is chained to the ground. Rimuto is in the room and states that the monster is the "awakened form" of the so-called dragon descendants, although the awakening process is not the same process as Claymores. Rimuto then directs Miria to a large humanoid creature hanging from some tubes and chains and states that is the original form of the dragon descendant. Rimuto states that even in their original form, the dragon descendants are twice the size of humans. They are hermaphrodites, live 200 years and get stronger as they age. Facing such formidable adversaries, Rimuto states that his side had to work hard to try to even the playing field. Miria wonders if the two dragon descendants are still alive, and Rimuto answers that they are because dead dragon descendants decay very rapidly. The Organization operates by slowly removing pieces of flesh from the two creatures and somehow combining them into something that doesn't decay so easily. The new living mass is implanted to a human brain as a parasite, and Miria knows that such an infected human is what people call a yoma. Infected people/yomas have an insatiable need to consume human guts, and the Organization uses this fact to run their Claymore program. Miria had known this for years, and states that the rule that warriors are not allowed to kill humans is a lie since yomas are just infected humans. Miria then uses her sword to decapitate Rimuto and cut life support to the two the dragon descendants, and the two monsters quickly decay into a big pile of goo. Miria exits the secret chamber and shows Rimuto's head to Helen and Deneve, but she doesn't tell them anything more.
It ends like this.....????
Outside, Yuma and Tabitha are healing the injured warriors. Everyone then see Miria appearing on a ledge above, and Miria raises Rimuto's head to signify the end of the Organization.
Claymore is over? No freakin' way! I thought Claymore would be one of those mangas that'll never end especially at the pace it was going at. Anyways, the chapter did end with a "the end" mark, but obviously the story obviously is far from over. The Organization has suffered a setback, but many of their personnel are still alive. There is the matter of the dragon descendants and the war on the mainland, and of course there is the matter of Clare of Priscilla. Everything in this chapter was about setting up for a continuation in new direction, and it didn't look like one of those rushed final chapters where you can guess that the series is getting canned. Maybe Yagi will go on break for a bit, but I fully expect that the story will continue, perhaps in the form of a sequel series.
So this chapter puts an end to the warrior rebellion and battles at Organization HQ, and more of the conspiracy that is Organization is revealed. We knew the Organization was behind the Claymores and the Awakened Being as part of their weapons research program, but this chapter completes the picture as even the yoma are inventions of the Organization. Everything stems from the dragon descendants, and the Organization's plan is to develop a way to counter the powerful creatures by fusing their flesh to humans. People directly infected with dragon descendant product became yomas, and then warriors are created by fusing yoma flesh to a female. The warriors are tasked with killing yomas and awakened beings (warriors that lost control), and that creates a live test environment for the Organization to hone their research. It's a rather clever ploy and has most people fooled, but Miria for some reason knew a lot of the truth. How she came do obtain that knowledge though is still a question as most Claymores are brought up to not question the Organization. We don't really know why Rimuto stuck around either. Perhaps as the "leader", Rimuto chose to go down with the ship when all of the other Organization members abandoned the headquarters.
This chapter answered a few questions, but there are of course a lot more questions left in Claymore. The biggest question at this point though is will there be a new chapter of Claymore (or a sequel) next month. Hopefully we'll get more news as to what's happening with this series.
