on a different note..what did Chronos mean when he said "But, this is without a doubt our best chance"...their best chance to what? Is there something else they are after?

unless she was meaning riful...maybe they came to tell the ghosts that Riful is fighting prissy
The only thing that "mini Riful" will be able to do will be buy some time, nothing more.
Also, about the "best chance"....it's basically what Brother Coa said.
First time she was able to kill 5 yoma and save around 30 Human lives.
Second time she saved Deneve, Helen and Miria by charging male AB.
Third time she saved Raki by sending him far from herself when that crazy nut head Ophelia go after her. ( she also killed her later, when she awakened )
Fourth time she went she was able to save Jean and Galatea from Riful and Dauf.
Fifth time she was able to save Miria and Helen by killing Rigaldo ( it did cost her Jean but she saved more than she lose ).
Sixth time she was able to regain Raphaelas memories and send Cynthia and Uma out of harm's way.
I don't recall any other situation where she have gone alone and failed ( except against Ophelia, but then again she kicked her b**t later so it doesn't count ).

a. lead this group of warriors she has lived with for over seven years, whom she leads, to a possible death and without knowing exactly how strong the org defenses could be.
b. she sends off all but all of her little team to various places, and thus away from her. she cuts down her comrade not to kill her, but to save her, as she had good reasons to think that she was heading to her death, and this comrade is particurally loyal to her. thus she attacks the organization alone, with the intent of setting an example to the other claymores there, and possibly weakening the defenses of the org even at the cost of her life, thus allowing the rest of their team to come after and be at far less risk than they would be before.
she chose the one that had the most risk to her and the less risk to the others. this shows the kind of person she is. to her, the lives of others are far more significant than her own, especially those she cares for. she actually cried when she realized that her plan seven years ago had only saved six others. she would prefer to be known as a traitor than let those six lives she saved be ended.
Yeah, that showed that Miria is carrying for other ( she showed that during fight with 3 resurrectied warriors ), but it also shows that she sometimes must choose hard decision - something that Deneve remind her during Organization fight. Yes, the Organization fight would be literally suicide for Ghosts, but if you are already determined to attack them and your troops are too then you only attack them in full force - you don't send your troops on two front and go alone ( the only time Miria acted stupid in manga ).
You can clearly see that changed after battle at Org. HQ as she is taking more risky mission - but wit hall of Ghosts together.
But did Chronos not say that Riful-duph was also something that surpasses the AO ? just like prissy....and from what we have seen this riful is more then a match from prissy/destroyer .... she punched her into a cliff and she is only in her human form she has yet to transform into her awakened body
that is obviously not the case. remember that while douf did get the drop on her, the moment she regained ocmposure she tore him like tissue paper. however thr destroyer priscilla here could not tear the new mosnter apart, and it actually physically tore itself from her grip. not with a tendril cut nor a dodge, real physical force.

Like I said: we can't really count that because Ilena helped her. But she didn't fail here because her goal was for Raki to be safe - and he was . Ophelia let her killed her but only after Clare chopped up all her arms and her entire body, like I said - Ophelia was crazy.Quote:
And Ilena could be credited for severely damaging her but not killing her, Clare on the other hand killed AWAKENED Ophelia. That is something totally different.
Exactly, the same thing happened with Isley too,lol.Quote:
There is just no way that someone can defeat Prissy, Claire is obviously one that could have the potential to surpass her (in part for story reasons and in part since she is connected with Teresa, the only other monster at an absurdly strong level)
which iw what i said...... which makes me feel i was just repeating someone else though. shrugs.
we will have to wait to see what kinda of origin this new monster has in the coming months i guess. though i can see it has several similarities to the destroyer itself. seemingly mindless and instinct driven, depiste it actually speaking but that could be some remnance.
from what i see, i think some of the infected twin's spikes made it to riful's corpse. likely the fact that the infected twin herself was of abyssal level, and mergeance of yoki, plus a bit of the destroyer itself, created a similar reaction to what created the destroyer. especially true for the fact both creature might have had their last lingering thoughts be on how much they hated priscilla. which would explain what it is doing out here.
There is no indication of what that Riful-Doll with Dauf's abilities is or where is it came from. But, Lars stated that it is a something else that surpasses the Abyssals and Tabitha said that it is very similar to certain person.
Chronos probably meant that it is their best chance at defeating Priscilla, since it looks like that Riful Doll is giving Priscilla Destroyer a run for her money.
Love this chapter!
Quicksword in action! <3
Irene is mentioned and shown for a panel! <3
Helen may now be officially a Quicksword fan! lol
(If Clare's Quicksword now is comparable to Irene's Quicksword, then IMHO Irene was truly a level No.1 warrior)
Cassandra is really an amazing tank! Considering she fought with Roxanne (another Abyssal One), and then remained in her awaken form for 20 days plus, and now she still able to regenerate pretty fast after being Quicksword-ed by Clare.
Octavia may be from Riful's generation or one of the earlier one, from the way she is calling Cassandra a child.
That Riful-Doll is still a mystery. (I'm calling a Riful-Doll because it seems like it is something else underneath Riful's shell)
- Judging from its ability to shoot rods like Dauf, infected Dauf may have did something to Riful's lower body before he took Riful's upper body to avenge her against Priscilla, in some way Dauf "save" Riful before loosing his mind.
- Or that Riful-Doll may really be the lovechild of Dauf and Riful, resulting in something that surpasses the Abyssals.
- It's still debate of what it really is.
Priscilla Destroyer seems like it wanted to merge with the Riful-Doll before getting sucker punch by it. Her fingers seem like it is sinking in or merging into its head. (Sidenote: I don't recall Priscilla having pointy fingernails like that before in her awaken form, edit. nevermind there was never a close-up like that one from this chapter lol)
