Well, it obviously made sense after Yagi revealed it.
And although many guessed that there was something eerie about Priscilla, sort of like her power was being hindered or held back during the fight, none actually guessed it was the Destroyer itself, or it that it was Priscilla who was allowing the Destroyer's outer control of her body be battered to pieces.
As for Riful-doll, let's have some ideas running.
-It is a little girl, around the size of Riful.
-Has Riful's tentacle hair characteristic.
-Has hollow eyes and a hallow mouth.
-Face is cracked and shows emotion in horrendous ways (dat grin e.e).
-Is able to talk.
-Hair can untangle around her to assault/defend/protect.
-Mouth and hand can fire mini-bullets similar to the likes of Duff.
-Embodies Yoki that easily overwhelms the AOs' Yoki (as well as Riful)
-Supported with a mass of tentacle ribbon strips base similar to Riful
-Height is augmented; goes from shorter than Priscilla to towering over her multiple times
-Arms are elongated and covered with mass of tentacle ribbons
-Duff-like spikes sticking out of back
-Very hunched-like shape
Another question: is the doll male or female? It doesn't seem to have any sexual characteristics at all. Asexual? Hermaphroditic? Prepubescent?
The hate toward Priscilla made the corpses of Riful and Dauf merge. That gets my vote. It's like the opposite of Rafaela and Luciela merging. In this case though, the awakening was probably triggered by Priscilla's Yoki signal when Clare was freed...or something. Its only drive seems to be to kill Priscilla. So, like the Destroyer, it is running more off of instinct than an intellect.
Looks genderless to me.
I think it was more so Riful and Duphs "LOVE" that allowed them to fuse and there "hate" for prissy is what gave them a "power boost". and i think ur right that it may have thought prissy dead(as it seems her yoki was gone along with clares) but once she started escaping and the blob started "pulsing" the being that was formed and was "slowly fading away"(like the destroyer would have if not for renee and clares interruption).it was awakened by prissys yoki and the desire to kill her gave it life ? maybe?
I think it's a female. Looks pretty chibi-cute along with the likes of Claymore-version Riful, Pre-Claymore Priscilla, and other little evil things.
Any new theories?
Obviously it's putting up a pretty nice fight against Priscilla, when the latter is actually trying now.
So what is it? All we have to do is wait and see. I suppose we can expect some suggestive advantage/outcome of the battle in the next chapter if Priscilla's "recreation" skills are not already assisting her as the advantage.
Riful and Duff's baby theory? Meh...... don't think so....
In the first place.... when did Duff ever die?
That thing that fight Prisscilla is actually Duff wearing Riful's skin. The thing's breast is clearly flat. The thing might be a "he". I am pretty sure Duff's last appearance is he holding Riful's skin while wailing.....
the dolls fight like Duff and only used Duff's skills. It doesn't use not even one Riful's skill.
The doll came out of Riful's lower body. See the next few pages.
And the doll uses hair ribbons very similar to Riful's signature ability. In fact, looking at its 'power up' form, its whole body looks like it's more or less made of Riful style hair ribbons (and Duff rods). The human-like form is just more tightly coiled.
I sill like the baby theory. Because we already seen a Future Fusion between cass and priss.
so if riful and daph fuse its more boring.
having a baby OTOH is more novelty.
