Clementine (クレマンティーヌ) was a member of the Slane Theocracy's Black Scripture, until she went rogue and became affiliated with Zurrernorn for protection. She was killed by Ainz as revenge for killing the Swords of Darkness.

Appearance

Clementine was a woman around twenty years old, with short blonde hair and delicate features, giving her a cat-like appearance. Her armor was made from the medals she had taken as trophies from the adventurers she had slain. Her favorite weapons were the stilettos she would wear on her sides, though she also used a mace and a mythril estoc coated with orichalcum.

Personality

Clementine was a sadistic psychopath, obsessed with inflicting pain and torture on others. As a former member of the Black Scripture, Clementine was extremely confident in her abilities. She would go so far as to declare herself unbeatable until her unfortunate encounter with Ainz, who proved to be much more powerful than her. During that battle with him, the woman eventually succumb to desperation as she was being crushed to death by his hands.

Background

Before Clementine went rogue, she once held the position of 9th Seat in the Black Scripture. Besides betraying the Scripture, she also stole the magical Crown of Wisdom from one of the Six Miko Princesses of the Theocracy. Because of that, she has chosen to flee from her homeland and join Zurrernorn for protection.

Chronology

The Dark Warrior Arc

Main article: The Dark Warrior Arc

In the night after Momon has accepted the quest to escort Nfirea Bareare to gather herbs in the Great Forest of Tob, she meets with Khajiit Dale Badantel in the secret shrine under the great cemetery of E-Rantel to discuss the kidnapping of Nfirea, and their plans to use him in the Ritual of Death prepared by Khajiit.[1]

One night later, she bumps into Zach on her way to meet with four workers whom she had planned on hiring to survey the house of Lizzie Bareare. However, she kills three of the workers out of blood thirst and uses mind-control on the last one to have him obey her. Still unsatisfied at not being able to kidnap Nfirea she again meets Khajiit in the secret shrine and launches a surprise attack on him, only to have it blocked by a summoned magic bone wall. Smiling, she leaves as if nothing happened while Khajiit, accustomed to her lunacy, simply curses her as a madwoman.[2]

The next day, Clementine raids the house of Lizzie Bareare, kidnapping her grandson Nfirea Bareare and killing the four members of the adventurer group Swords of Darkness. Clementine leaves fake clues before departing the scene to mislead Momon into the sewers but he sees through this and instead uses magic to track her whereabouts, by pinpointing the medals she took from the Swords of Darkness, right to the E-Rantel cemetery.

Finally confronting Momon in a duel, Clementine surprises him with her proficient use of Martial Arts as she is capable of landing a blow to his head. Since Momon is an undead who has the skills to make all low level attacks invalid, this blow which would normally be harmful to a human being does not even harm him one bit. Near the end of the battle, she ultimately finds herself being crushed to death within the powerful arms of Ainz Ooal Gown, vainly struggling to break free from his grasp. After Clementine's death, her belongings were taken by Ainz and her body was left in order to identify those who were behind the incident.[3]

After having been killed by Ainz Ooal Gown, Clementine's body was taken into custody by the E-Rantel's officials. However, her corpse mysteriously disappeared from where it was held.[4]

The Ruler of Conspiracy Arc

Before facing against the Martial Lord, Ainz remembered how his battle against Clementine allowed him to learn much about fighting as a warrior. Ainz felt nothing but gratitude for Clementine, who had taught him how lacking he was as a frontline fighter. During his fight with the Martial Lord, Ainz used two of the four stilettos he had and attacked in a similar manner like Clementine. However, Ainz did not try to perform Clementine's bizarre and strange crouching stance, but he did practice and learned to run in a similar way.[5]

Abilities and Powers

Clementine was considered to be one of the strongest humans in the Slane Theocracy during her service to the nation. While so, she was a member of the Black Scripture, which is the strongest Scripture in the Slane Theocracy. According to the Windflower Scripture, there are only five humans in Re-Estize Kingdom who can put up a fight with her; these being Gazef Stronoff, Blue Rose's Gagaran, Red Drop's Luisenberg, Brain Unglaus and the retired Vesture Kloff Di Laufen. She was actually stronger than Hamsuke, Gazef, and Brain. It is noted that Gazef could overwhelm her if he used all of his full equipment. However, if Clementine were to use her full equipment from when she was in the Black Scripture, even a fully equipped Gazef could not defeat her.

Clementine specialized in dealing stabbing or piercing-type damage. Based on her conversations with Khajiit, she is also skilled at dealing one-hit kills onto her target makes Clementine a formidable foe against the living. However, her fighting style is lackluster against the undead due to their racial Critical Hit Immunity. This is demonstrated in her battle against Momon. Although unable to damage his armor, she is able to stab him through the visor of his helmet repeatedly, an attack that would have killed most normal opponents, but had no effect on Momon.

Clementine's armor does not seem to provide much protection, but thanks to her agility and Martial Arts skills such as Flow Acceleration and Impenetrable Fortress, she is very skilled at blocking and avoiding damage. Using Impenetrable Fortress, she is able to block an attack from one of Momon's greatswords with a mere stiletto, despite being physically much weaker than Momon.

Her stilettos can be enchanted with a single use of a spell up to third tier that could be released upon a successful hit. One of the stilettos was charged with a lightning spell (presumably Lightning), another with a fire spell (presumably Fireball). A third was imbued with some sort of charm spell that allowed Clementine to control the mind of someone she stabbed.

Martial Arts

  • Ability Boost: Increases the overall abilities of the user.
  • Greater Ability Boost: Greatly further increases the overall abilities of the body.
  • Flow Acceleration: An art that temporarily accelerates the workings of the user's nerves, increasing one's attack speed and movement speed. The downside to it however, is that the extreme exhaustion that builds up in the user's brain.
  • Greater Evasion: Allows user to dodge attacks easily.
  • Invulnerable Fortress: Allows user to block attacks from physically superior enemies.
  • Pace of the Wind: Increases user's speed.

Main Equipment

  • Stilettos: Short piercing weapons excellent for attacking an enemy's weak points. Clementine carried four of these blades on her person and usually duel-wielded them with great skill. Additionally, these stilettos have a special property: they can be enchanted with a single spell up to 3rd tier. The user has the option of casting the spell on a successful attack. However, once a spell is cast this way, the weapon is emptied until "recharged" by a spellcaster. Of Clementine's four stilettos, one was imbued with a mind-control spell, another had Lightning sealed within, and a third had Fireball.
  • Morning Star: A spiked mace that used to inflict bludgeoning attacks.

Relationships

Khajiit Dale Badantel

Despite being partners in crime, the two of them were wary of each other. This is because if Clementine did not see any use for Khajiit, she would have killed him without mercy. The reason Clementine had not done so was due to their agreement that she would help Khajiit finish his ritual ahead of schedule in exchange for him covering her escape. Despite this, she would still attempt to kill him on a whim if he happens to lower his guard around her.

Momon

Clementine confronted Ainz as Momon. During their battle, she noticed that he displayed great physical strength, but no viable skills of a warrior. Ainz learned a lot about Martial Arts during their short confrontation and then killed her in his true form with a bear hug-like attack. He even tried to copy her weapons, fighting style, and stance when facing the Martial Lord, Go Gin in battle.

Quaiesse Hazia Quintia

Clementine's brother in the Webnovel. Between the two, he was more favored by their parents, who gave him all their love.

Trivia

  • In the Web Novel, she watches Ainz use Super-Tier Magic, making people regain their youth. She then instantly understood that there is no way to harm Ainz, and retreats. Also, she has a brother who is the 5th Seat in the Black Scripture.
  • Aside from being a former Black Scripture member, Clementine used to be a body double for Quintia.
  • Besides Nfirea & Fluder, Clementine is one of the three people so far to know about Momon's true identity as an undead.

Quotes

  • (To Khajiit): "...Then, don't call me a fragment of Quintia, hm? Call me Clementine."
  • (To Nfirea): "Hm? Ehehehe~ I came to kidnap you~ I need someone to use the spell which summons a biiiiiiig horde of undead, [Undeath Army], so could you be my magic item? Onee-chan's begging you~"
  • (To Momon): "Really? Well that's a shame~ It's fun to piss off those people who get all emotional when their friends come up. Oi, why aren't you getting mad? You're no fun! Or could it be they weren't your friends?"
  • (To Momon about Re-Estize Kingdom): "Yup, it goes without saying. No warrior in this country can beat me~ no, wait, almost no warrior in this country can beat me~"
  • (To Momon): "I don't know what sort of ugly face is under that helmet of yours, but there's no way that I, Clementine-sama — one who's left humanity behind and stepped into the realm of heroes — could possibly lose!"
  • (To Momon): "—Are you stupid? You're just swinging your swords with raw strength and speed, wildly swiping around like a kid with a stick. You might have a sword in each hand, but if you don't know how to use them, then sticking to one sword would be wiser. Aren't you taking the warrior business a little too lightly?"
  • (To Momon): "Ah well. If that's the case, next time~ hmm, maybe I should hit somewhere with thinner armor~ although I wanted to wear your down bit by bit, then sloooowly torment you once you couldn't move~ what a shame, what a shame."
  • (To Momon): "...Hah? Are you an idiot? If you've only learned that now...then you're a failure as a warrior. Oh well, it doesn't matter since you're going to die here~ though I'd like an answer to my question...was it some sort of defensive martial art~?"
