I interpret it as they are indeed Cassandra, Roxanne, and Hysteria, but as they are resurrected they are no longer a Claymore warrior nor an awaken being yet, they are a different kind of being that are bound to awaken no matter what.
After all, their dead bodies were indeed used in bringing them back. Those three have their own memoires, used their own techniques, and have their personality, so I don't think they are "completely" different beings that only looked like them. They are them but as a different kind of being that is bound to awaken no matter what in time.
If Cassandra's will or even Roxanne's will are still lingering within, it's not going to be easy for Priscilla to completely consume them, as strong as Priscilla is, she is not known to possess a strong will (extreme hatred, yes, but a strong will, no, well except the time she did not eat for 7 years, but that is another matter).
As I stated I do wonder if Cynthia, Yuma, and Tabitha alone are enough to find and bring Cassandra's self back.

The same goes for their yoma side. I don't think there is one Claymore who ever embraced her/his yoma side, but neither do they (except probably in some cases) seem to dwell on how much they hate that part inside. They learn to live with it. Develop some coping mechanism.
Doesn't mean they don't have issues, but they are functional [human] beings nevertheless. I think if all of them walked around with that much hatred we would see some signs. Unless the hatred is more of an unconscious thing?
I can buy the idea of the yoma inside being driven by self-preservation though, or wanting to assert control. But that being caused sorely by hatred leaves me somewhat unimpressed. As I mentioned, most Claymores manage somehow to learn to live with that side.
Easily the most "alarming" thing that's developed recently was Prisc's actual god-power. Remember only a couple months ago we were dumb enough to actually weigh Clare's new techniques that she gained, in relation to how, maybe, she could Half-Awaken (or w/e) and use those mutations to fight Prisc ? All a pipe dream now. Now, given only what's in front of us, Clare's only option is to literally awaken, or fight Prisc in a "dream state" or otherwise isolated mental realm- that would be a huge cop-out and lame, so I'm still waiting for my girl to awaken and give many fans what they've been waiting for for several years now. We have 2 ridiculous godzillas on the battlefield now; I don't see much of a reason to hold back on a 3rd godzilla.

Obviously, they knew that Cassandra was going to free Priscilla anyways based on their knowledge (and is pretty much confirmed now), so the best solution would be to stop Cassandra.
However, they already saw Priscilla coming out of the cocoon, so when she did, they obviously were smart enough to think this;
Fight Priscilla= Death
Priscilla + Cassandra= Good game
In the order of correct logic, they would then attack Cassandra and stop her from merging instead of running or taking on some opponent that would essentially result in suicide.
But I do agree it that the plan sort of became stupid when Priscilla was released from her cocoon, yet what else could they do?
Keep in mind the Seven Ghosts are trying to get the best possible solution out of this, and that is keeping Priscilla from becoming even more powerful.
Unfortunately, they did not predict that their plan was faulty since the start, since Cassandra was already a segment of Priscilla's mind.
And do you really think Clare will be able to tap into Teresa's power?
Why is it that she has not already tapped into such a hidden power previously?
I can think of multiple situations in which Clare desperately could have used that help, yet did not find it.
What makes this situation so different, or will make it so unique that she finally obtains this "arbitrary" power?
Finally, it's agreeable: Miria's an idiot.
But I still appreciate it, since she technically
isso far from what we have seen, has been the deuteragonist.
Though it's quite arguable that Clare or someone else has shifted the leadership role she once conducted, leaving her behind with Yagi's crappy plot digressions.
I don't believe that I'm missing out on anything tbh. It's not that your reasons for potential abilities that Clare can gain, these are logically sound. The point is that to finish this thing out, she will have to awaken- If we're talking theoretical access to these things. Either way it's going to happen.
My vote's still going to Clare turning into Teresa when she awakens.
ed: Here's what I'm prepared to offer as a good ending:
For those who agree that the power level of the strongest beings in the game right now have warranted an appropriate response in lethality, then it make all the sense in the world for several (and I mean any random ghost: Tabitha could freak out and do it- Deneve, Helen, Miata.)
This kind of craziness for literally last for a year of episodes at least. Part of me welcomes it too.
(sorry i quoted myself wasn't paying attention)
And if upon awakening Roxannes power should have increased so i think its safe to say she could hide it from more then 1 person now(tho theres no proof)
I just finished reading the english scanlation, and I have to say....I like the chapter a whole lot more now.
Specifically the bit on hatred - maybe it's because I've also had time to think on it, but my impression of the idea is alot more positive then it used to be, perhaps because this chapter also delves into the Priscilla's battle with Isley and her overflowing power. Naturally, nothing actually changed from the chapter itself then simply being able to read it in english, but as a whole....I enjoyed it more then I did before.
I still think, more then before actually, that Dae is simply speaking his mind rather than we are required to accept his ideas a la 'yagi mouthpiece'....regardless, unlike other such moments, usually with Dr.Deneve like the jean Wedge theory, I found myself liking this idea more than those others. On an intuitive level, I guess, it made some sense to me, even though are still bound to analyze his words like crazy for the remainder of the month to check for consistency....as well we should.
With regards to the bit about hatred the part of this post about 'meanness' might be of interest. Clare is mean when she receives no affection yet she entered remission when Raki turned up. Teresa too when Clare enters her life. Although there are plot holes associated with the idea that youki and awakening are a representation of meanness (as described below), its what Yagi is saying.
In case you haven't noticed Gernot has made his translation public. You should thank him since he's the most important person for a scanlation team (without a translator everyone else is useless).
