a fly (raki) compared to a T-REX (Priscilla).

what interest does a T-Rex have in a fly?
keep in mind Isley cared for Raki & Priscillia

Lucelia for Rafaela

Riful for duph

etc, we don't know for sure either way Priscilla stopped caring for Raki.

Infact I would find it interesting if he was her achilles heel

Roflmao, I really doubt that. She's always annoyed and fed up with him and his idiocy. Odds are the "love" grew unconsciously throughout time and their experiences(failures) together.

Priscilla hasn't forgotten Raki; the fact she still brings him up shows that. Regardless of whether or not she left him for dead, because she can't help him, because he told her to leave, or whatever, she still remembers him.

Which means that Raki still remains her achilles heel like kenshin says; perhaps not to the same degree as before, but he's got the best chance of getting through to her.

However, maybe he won't remember her. Who knows what the Org will do to him; they have experience with mental conditioning with Alicia and Beth and though he has a strong will, they are bound to try to tamper with his mind and his memories.

um... usually this is a female's weird way that they express their love... by being mean to a guy (though, guys who like girls too, are often mean to them as well)

at younger ages, both boys and girls are shy or embarrased, so they be mean, in hopes of masking-hiding their actually interest in that person..

at older ages... the lucky guys learn, that being nice is boring for the girl and she has no interest in such a nice guy. by being mean to the girl, it challenges-excites them and actually makes them interested in you.... girls like "bad boys" as they are fun and exciting to be with. girls wanna have fun and live wildly and be naughty, and a nice guy-boy is B-O-R-I-N-G ! and so NOT what the girl wants.
Roflmao, a list of stereotypes, but it did make me laugh Hedge

I have yet to see a female expressing their love for someone by being mean to them anywhere outside of cartoons , the same goes for the male being mean. Other then "tough love" from family(usually fathers), teachers, or some other older, higher authoritative figure, attempting to express love to a potential spouse by being mean to them is just plain stupid. I imagine it would probably end the relationship, if their is one, then keep it together .

Maybe I'm wrong and people actually grew up acting like one of these walking-cliche's, but it's usually the media who creates them and uses them. Growing up, I've never seen people act or behave like what you've written.

That said.......a fly? That's the best you could give Raki?

That is, of course, assuming thay they knew each other before they Awakened. Something very doubtful since they weren't from the same generation.

I believe she took him under her wing at first simply because he was the only who could take her without breaking - how many male Awakeneds perished before Riful discovered Dauf? Ouch - and, with time, she started to really care about him and, maybe, even love him.

You and me both my friend, I have even stated in the past that we really need an extra arc reflecting on that particular topic.

So... Has anyone else thought Raki=Laki~Lackey?

lack⋅ey
  /ˈlŠki/ [lak-ee] plural -eys, verb, -eyed, -ey⋅ing.

–noun
1. a servile follower; toady.
2. a footman or liveried manservant.

IMHO it's Raki=Laki~Lucky. In a few languages Laki sounds exactly like english Lucky.

I'm nost sure if anyone mentioned it before...
As we have seen when Beth was possessed by The Rod, she was able to retain her consciouness. It was told that she was able to do it because of soul link with Alice. Fab4 and Jeans example proved that to resist awakening will power is most important. As we know one of Raki strong points is his will power and determination.
A few people speculated that Raki might be a new male Claymore or something simmiliar to AF. IMHO he will be something like Beth.

Laki/Lucky though just sounds stupid 0_o. Yeah I guess he's pretty lucky, but as a name it's bad, and lackey is even worse because it sounds demeaning.

That still isn't good though; he's never been a servant. The whole "cook" thing was just an excuse Claire came up with because she's too much of a "bad girl" to say anything else. Raki has definitely elevated himself throughout the story, he shouldn't have a name that's essentially "Servant" :/ .

Dauf....now there's a guy who should be called Lackey, that's all he really is.

Hey guys, I just registered, for now I'll only be in the Claymore area, because it's my new favorite anime, but maybe when I see some more animes I'll start popping up in other sections of the forums.

Anywho, back on topic.
Firstly, to answer the original question of this thread. I think Raki is quite a vital part in the story. Even though physically he is pretty much useless, he has had a very large mental impact on many characters.

When Clare was fighting the Yoma in the Great Cathedral and was about to Awaken, he still clenched onto her and said "I want to be with you forever." Were those not the same words that Clare told Teresa too? This was probably why Clare mustered the power to revert back to Human Form, because she had already given up and said it was useless at that point. What would have happened if Clare awakened?
Secondly, I have a hunch that the only thing that's keeping Clare going now is the promise she made to Raki. I believe she knows that she's no match for Priscilla for now, so she is focusing on finding Raki and staying alive like she promised. Maybe she would have just perished if not for that promise?
Lastly, look at what Raki is doing with Priscilla. Even though it is speculated that she does not feel for Raki or "care" for him, she still follows him and it was made apparent she hasn't eaten guts in years. Who knows, maybe Raki may be able to change Priscilla before her fated showdown with Clare.

Spoiler for Storyline:


Just something I had on my mind and wanted to put out there

Welcome to the forum Saint Salty.
BTW, you don't need to use spoiler tags when talking about later chapters of the manga. This isn't an anime only thread.

That reminds me of the all elusive Naruto thread.

Glad to have you on board my friend. I also first started like you said. This is my first forum. And it all came about because of Claymore, although I'm now viewing Naruto and some others as well on this forum.

Hnn, seems that I missed a rather intense battle here a few weeks ago. And I didn't even mean to become drawn into it either.

Anyway, welcome Saint Salty - you'll find no loss of fanatical love of Claymore here. XD

And yes, since the ORG has effectively lost it's #1 and #2 to Priscilla, chances of them restarting the Male Claymore Program using Raki as the cornerstone does seem feasible. He's been around Youma, Claymores, and Awakened beings ever since he was a child - it's one hell of a longshot but there is a very very very slight chance that all that 'youki poisoning' (i.e. radiation poisoning) has changed him somehow.

If you work with it long enough, you will be changed by it - the same could be said of the MIB as well.

I'd give up all of my money that's in my savings (which is alot) to see a glimpse of Raki being a new warrior of the Organization. Then he see him leading 20-25 females warriors to take on the dragonkin invasion.
