Teresa did change...she went from alive to deadQuote:
But i do see where you are going with this. Teresa was a bitch met clare and instantly became a good person.
But in my opinion that scene was awful it turned one of the bitchiest most bad ass warriors into a blubbering baby(tho she did redeem herself when she sliced and diced all those bandits)....Plus i am one of the few people who dont really like Clare(and i absolutely hated her when she was a human) she was cool in her fight with Rigaldo i will give her that....she looked bad ass in that fight
I wouldn't call Renee ugly, though her looks were rather unique - she didn't quite look like the caucasian/western type of other Claymores. Instead she seemed to have very tanned skin, like she was from some tropical place... And well, she seemed quite *ahem* 'stacked'. Honestly, on a 1 to 10 scale, I'd give her a solid 8.
In sheer physical attractiveness however, and discarding personality completely, I'd say Teresa, Anastasia, Galatea and Hysteria are a 10. Maybe even 11...
This seems interesting, but I'm guessing Flora, Galatea, Dietrich, and Teresa are going to get a ton of votes. Renee and Rachel are the least attractive characters as far as looks go, aside from those creepy twins. Ophelia and Cassandra are definitely the most attractive characters in Claymore, though. We all know Riful's a fox, too...especially in her awakened form!

I quickly gave ratings to the initial list (and added some missing names), just to see where they would end up at:
Cassandra’s Friend: 7.5
Clare’s Rival: 0
Claymore of Jean’s team: 7 (half her body was missing…though)
Miata: 9 (her hair!!!)
Riful: 9 (esp. awakened, haha!)
Undine: 8 (in normal form, she’s so cute!)

I'm too lazy to go through the entire list...
Alicia : 9
Anastasia : 10
Audrey : 9
Beth : 9
Cassandra : 7
Clare : 8
Clarice : 7.5
Cynthia : 8 (is more 'cute' than 'hot')
Deneve : 8
Dietrich : 8
Flora : 9
Galatea : 10
Helen : 7.5
Hysteria : 10
Irene : 8.5
Miria : 9
Octavia : 9
Priscilla : 8.5 (in human-form AB, not as a Claymore)
Raftela : 7.5
Renee : 8.5
Riful : 6 (when Yagi first drew her - her face was odd!) - 8 (in later appearances)
Tabitha : 7
Teresa : 10
Yuma : 8 (is more 'cute' than 'hot')
Rating Renee (not quite as ugly as Rachel) over Cassandra (perhaps the most attractive character in the series) is blasphemy against Claymore. You forgot to rate Ophelia.
I think Renee is hot! It's a little hard to see because she spends all her time looking freaked out (can you blame her?) but she's got the goods.
As for Yuma, she's adorable and every now and again you get moments like panel 6.*sings badly* Baby you light up my world like nobody else/The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed/But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell/You don't kno-o-ow, YOU DON'T KNOW YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL!!! *contest cancelled due to admin being strangled by flatmate*
Since I'm expressing opinions on the contestants, I would like to make the following statement.
ANNOUNCEMENT: I will NOT abuse my power as contest admin to influence results such that they reflect my own personal opinions. My vote is as good as yours.

I agree with you here, I never thought that Anastasia was that pretty. And Cassandra is the prettiest of the resurrected number ones.Quote:

*shrug* it's just a matter of opinion, seriously there wouldn't be a need for beauty contests if everyone agreed - though apparently everyone agrees on Rachel at least . And honestly, it's difficult to tell how attractive a character is meant to be - in chapter 5, Clare was described as 'gorgeous', but I wouldn't go that far, there are more beautiful women in Claymore. I'll respect everyone's opinion even if they don't match mine, please give me the same courtesy.
And I didn't forget Ophelia, it's just that I can't rate her... When I did, I tried to overlook their quirks and personality flaws (seriously, Teresa and Hysteria look great IMO, but their personalities suck), but I can't help but remember Ophelia and Roxanne as complete psychos, which screws my perception... Then again, I'll admit that Ophelia was beautiful on her last page, with her hair down and that peaceful expression on her face.
Ophelia and Ophelia share more than a name. The Shakespeare character also had a protective older brother (Laertes) and died picturesquely in a pond. Given that the Death Of Ophelia is such a theme in the 19th century art of which Yagi is a fan (Alphonse Mucha and Henri de Tolouse-Lautrec much?), I don't think this is coincidence.
But looks vary with different artwork. I know of the characters that appear in the anime, I will always have those images in mind first over the manga. And some characters look very different even in just the manga. Also clothing can really make one seem more or less attractive. I didnt think Clare was super hot at first, in the organizations armor, but in the black outfit when she went to Rabona or the Ghost Clare is much more sexy lookin to me. A lot of characters didnt appear in more than one look though. Or some might have appeared different in just a quick glimps like Ophelia... totally not into the braid or the elf ears. But dang she looked nice on her final scene. Kinda hard to place her.
