Throughout the land stalks a brutal scourge of evil known as Yoma, a terrifying breed of monster with an insatiable appetite for human flesh and the ability to take on the form of those on which they have fed. Their only foes are the Claymores or "silver eyed witches", female human-Yoma hybrids possessing extraordinary strength and sword-wielding prowess. The Claymores roam the land, offering their Yoma destroying services to those in need… but there is always a price to pay.
One such Claymore is Clare, a once beautiful young woman with a painful past, whose path toward vengeance is marked by violence, solitude and scorn. That is until she meets and rescues and young boy, Raki, who helps revive the spirit and compassion of his half-human, half-monster saviour, even as she recalls the fateful events that led to her becoming the thing that many - humans and monsters, alike - have come to fear.
