Lmfao @ undine having ZERO votes. I suppose that should be expected , after all, she's only one of the most butch and egotistical female characters in the series, why wouldn't she be hated by a bunch of virgin losers who can't handle confident women because they know they'd never get laid by any woman unless she's a submissive whore.
Men are usually turned off by confidence, especially when it's from a woman. We have to deal with our own egos as it is, so having that egotistical bullshit from a woman, especially a butch ass woman like undine, unsurprisingly yielded the results I nearly expected. Zero Votes for undine
And it doesnt mean she is hated either, just not in anyones top selection.
You also could have made your point without assuming (incorrectly) and stating that we are all a bunch of virgin losers.

I voted for quite a few xD
Irene: She's a badass and I love her technique. And the fact she gave up her only arm for Clare was pretty awesome.
Yuma and Cynthia: I love these two Their personalities are probably my favorite kind in the characters of series I watch/read
Galatea: She's a sassy nun! What's not to like ? I loved her from the moment she was introduced ^^
Undine: Really like her I was pretty sad when she died. She came off as a bitch at first but once we found out it was just an act I liked her instantly! (not that I didn't like her when she was a bitch haha)
Rafaela: I am drawn to tragic backstory characters. That and the fact she's an assassin of sorts makes her a total badass! (really liked Luciela too)
Alicia/Beth: Loved their Awakened forms. Though only wished they were in the series longer. Was pretty gutted when they died.
Audrey: I like her for some reason. Again not another character with a lot of "screen time" but she pretty cool, in my opinion at least.
Ophelia: A sadistic monster with a pretty awful past ? YES! I really loved her character and her death was so sad, she redeemed herself! TnT
I've been lurking as a ninja around these forums for quite a while now.
Finally decided to make an account, reason for that being is the fact that I cannot believe that Priscilla has 7 total votes including mine.
Well Here are my 4 votes:
Priscilla- Reason why Priscilla is my favourite character in the series, has to do something with how individuals function and develop within a society. Author hides great deal of psychological and epic literary works within the very few yet very precious dialogues that Priscilla provides.
Priscilla represents something raw and pure, a being that is "next level" so to speak, in comparison to those around her. I remember the first scene where I truly began to appreciate this enigmatic character was in the "War in Pieta" saga\chapter 11 I believe. She left with out warning in the middle of snowstorm, Raki instructed by Isley went out to look for her. Soon after leaving Raki discovers Priscilla on top of a cliff standing completely naked(this is very important symbolism that she is standing in her pure\untainted form), watching out into the distance crying. She vaguely says "One by one.. they all have been extinguished..." " Only Two remain, shining much brighter than the others" "Yet they are such ephemeral lights", pause , "And now all of the lights are gone"(tear flows down her face).
What this scene did was show a true raw human emotion that is not corrupted by society , culture,religion, ideology. The relevance of this is, that Priscilla isn't evil or good. She is simply a life form far above everyone else. Her world view isn't tainted or clouded by someone elses interpretation of right or wrong, she resemble life it self in its most pure form. If shes hungry she will eat her prey, if shes sad she will cry. She doesn't try to disguise her self as something she is not, so to speak she wears no mask of deception and lies that us humans will wear for various reasons such as to defend our personal interests or to defend a blind ideology we follow. On top of that being "next level", you are automatically isolated from everyone else(all alone on top of the mountain), which further contributes to her not being tainted and pure. Piece of dried sharp clay will not scratch a diamond, no matter how many sharp pieces of dried clay are laying around the diamond.
And its always the imagery that follows Priscilla's character. Her eyes will always be nearly shut, looking down signifying that she is barely in touch with the outside world, that there's nothing of interest or anything of desire around her.
Clarice\Miata- The weakest warrior, whom at first seemed rather insignificant. A weakest warrior who was paired up with a potential future candidate for number 1, Miata of the faint smile. (every time I see miata, I can't help but think of Terresa, further chapters will reveal if there are any connection between the 2)
Clarice was the weakest of all warriors, she wasn't particularly memorable or interesting. She was simply a medium that allowed us an introduction to Miata . But before Clarice died, she revealed a little bit about her self and the type of life she lived. She said something along the lines , " I was never anything special, my whole family died(or got ate by yoma), I was living in a pile of rubble, making bed on a pile of rocks, and scavenging for food with a group of rats , and I WAS TO WEAK to bring my self out of these circumstances." "So when my village got destroyed by a group of yoma i felt no particular sadness or regret" "Then organizations men came and took me." " I thought that finally I'll be able to become something , and be able to leave my circumstances behind" "So when I became a warrior with colored hair, I felt really special, but then I learned what the word colored head meant..." Clarice's life was empty, with out meaning, not something most of us can relate too. Although such story is not uncommon among claymores, Clarice never could fit in, neither with the villagers, neither among Claymores. She was aways referred to as dead weight\loser. She was trully all alone in this world. So finally after she became friends with Miata. Finally when she found a single friend in this world, before she died, Clarice erased all of Miatas memories of her self .This was done for Miatas and everyone elses sake and died forgotten by the only friend she ever had in her life. I cried no lie.
And miata- She has the foundation to develop into an excellent character, but yet to do so.
Teresa - Self Explanatory. Clever,strong. I won't go into detail why I liker her, and what I yet expect to see from the manga that involves her, since she was most favoured and most talked about here on this poll. So I would only be repeating.
Wrote this on my phone, so it was very short.

I got too many characters and I don't feel like writing a paragraph on each so it just an idea of why I like them. There are also ABs on the list since they were former Claymores.
Ophelia: She was my first favorite in the series. She was so crazy and awesome and I love her for it.
Dietrich: An intriguing character who I just liked right away like Ophelia. She's just awesome.
Rafaela: Rank 5, that's strong as Rank 1. Doesn't even use her yoki half the time and is still that strong. Awesome.
Audrey: Took a moment for her to grow on me, but I like what she brings to the table.
Beth: I don't know, but I just like all Number 2 Ranked characters and she is no exception.
Jean: Strong will is inspiring. Put Clare on the right track.
Teresa: She's just super.
Priscilla: See Teresa.
Cassandra: Same with Ophelia and Deitrich, I automatically liked her when we just knew her name and epithet as they listed the Number 1 bodies they had.
Agatha: She's a Rank 2 so I like her.
Europa: She's so damn lazy and I like characters like that.
Isley: A great character who was just too awesome to live. I was a bit sad when he died. Dude just wanted to spend time with his family and protected them by driving them off.
Rigardo: The one who started my Rank 2 craze. His skills and form were ferocious and he pretty much had the entire mission in the bad until Clare screwed it up.
Chronos: I don't know really, he's just so suave and calm.
That super armor AB who died against Priscilla but didn't have a name: She looked awesome.
