When Clare finds Jean, the No. 9's body is already completely Awakened, but, incredibly, her mind is still human. Jean begs Clare to kill her as long as she's still human so that she can die a human death. Clare, however, tries the same method as Galatea to bring back Jean. Fortunately, she succeeds, and Jean's body turns back into its human form. After allowing Jean a bit of time to recover, the two Claymores join Galatea and the fight with Dauf continues. When things seem to be at their bleakest, Clare finally learns how to fully control the Quicksword, and this allows Jean to use her Drill Sword to break through Dauf's armor. They almost kill Dauf, when Riful interferes, saying that, for better or worse, he is her man. After Clare cuts the Abyssal One with her sword, Riful reveals the name of the Abyssal of the North and his location. Afterwards, she disappears, leaving Galatea, Clare and Jean behind. Galatea then asks Clare to follow her back to the Organization, but the latter refuses and Jean stands to protect her. In the end, Galatea decides to spare Clare and Jean and leaves.
