View Full Version : Discussion How are the Yomas created??

Here is the deal...
In the beggining of the serie, we were led to beleive that Yomas allways existed, and the humans could never find them, therefor they couldnt destroy them... so the Organisation apeeared and came up with a solution...
they picked up humans (females, especially children) and incorporated parts of yomas in their bodies, so they became stronger and could locate the Yomas and thus the Claymores were created.

In the last few chapters though (if we believe Miria is right) we discovered that there are people who never heard of Yomas before. That the organisation lied to create the mith "Yomas allways existed"...

So, we know how Claymores are created, but how the Yomas apeear?? Did the organisation created them?? how??

lets especulate

Questions was answered so thread is closed

I think it all ready stated in the chapter that miria believes that yoma are created from within the org. I could only come up with one theory that they were once humans, but then if this was the case why would they be weaker than claymores and wouldn’t it just make all yoma in essence awakened beings.

Maybe their creation is related to the DoD, like from stolen eggs or something...

Thats a thory, but they would need A LOT of eggs to create so many Yomas.... i dont think they can steal that many from the DoD

one thing that interested me was how claire was fused with teresa's remains. Is Teresa's head inside claire? I think one scene a claymore was feeling claire's stomach area and there was blood...

Thats a very interesting idea. I wouldn't go with the "egg' though. I'm leaning more towards genetic alteration. Injection of DoD DNA into the body. How are the claymores created? I don't fully recall but something along the lines of placing yoma parts into the person. So what about when Clare offered Teresa's head? If they can use a claymore's head to create a claymore from a human, I'm sure they have the genetic alteration capabilities to create yoma.

Genetic mutation/alteration gets my vote.

Well, in order to not involve science in fantasy manga, I'll go with simple DoD flesh/blood trasfusion.
Like, Organization inderted DoD material into humans, but it was too strongly mutagenic, and resulted in yoma -- defected beasts. Then, org taken yoma blood (wich is 50% DoD - 50% human, and transfused it in human once more, resulting in more stable Claymores.

I also think that yomas might be the product of genetic experiments. Maybe they are mutated humans, maybe a DoD/human cross. But there is also the possibility that they are a separate species and the Organiztion took control of them and began to breed them like dogs. They might have created various 'breeds', like the flying types and so on...

That's the $64,000 question right now. I wouldn't be to shocked if it was all a little more technological than Maria could understand. The special material of their swords, using a whole content as a lab, doesn't sound much like a medieval civilization. Also alot of the higher ups at the organization don't seem totally human themselves. The whole issue of the origins of the yoma could be something out of left field.
