    Yes, when she awakeden she killed her comrades with pleasure. She knew what she was doing and enjoyed it.

    What makes her complicated is how she can mercilessly kill in her awaked form and then cry in human form.
    How is it complicated when you just cited the only 2 things we've seen her do? To me, it's seems rather simple. Also, it's due to lack of knowledge about her that might make it SEEM complicated, but as for what we've seen and know, it isn't.

    We know a lot about Riful, but she's still a complicated and tricky character (whom I love), unlike Priscilla.

    I just cited two things that are supposed to contradict each other - people normally do not cry seeing how thier enemies are dying.

    And yes, we certanly lack knowledge. Thats why i said that she seems to be complex, not that she is complex for sure

    Killing people and then saving lives is a contradiction. Killing people and crying aren't.

    I also don't see how crying and killing can make someone complicated. People could cry about killing, staining your hands with so much blood does have an effect on your mind. I'm certain most soldiers who has killed in a war didn't come back without horrifying memories which haunts them. To me that seems more normal than killing and not giving a thought about it at all. I've seen a guy on national geo where he committed 70 or so homicides only to try and find out if he feels anything towards the victim. He even killed his own daughter and didnt feel a thing nor shed a tear. That greatly disturbed me than a felon who killed and cried in court because he knew what he was doing but his body couldnt stop himself and when he gained possession of his body again the person was lying dead. It had something to do with very high lvl of testostrone(Not sure if i have the spelling right). I'd say Priscilla's actions are pretty normal if she does feel guilty about her killings. Riful on the other hand >.>

    I gotta say, I'm pretty confused about how she's been acting. Her crying for those Claymores just completely threw me off.

    Im not really sure about this but when I saw Priscilla crying in both the anime and the manga, I did felt something for her.

    It made her character more complex as she's not what we have always assumed her to be - a monster that walked around and eating others up without emotions.

    I just hope that more will be covered on her in the next few volumes

    You mean killing people and then saving them (exactly same people)? How is this even possible?

    None of Claymors ever felt guilty for killing enemies. It's true that we have seen Miria crying, but she killed her friend, not just any claymore. Note that other claymores from her team didn't show any emotions. Also, there is Teresa's phrase about a child teaching her that tears can flow from silver eyes as well. Which means that crying is pretty rare for claymores. What I'm saying is that while it can be normal to have mental stress over killing in our world it is not that typical for claymore world. They are, after all, far from being normal human.

    Riful, just as most of claymores, fails to care less about those she is killing. Which is, for some reason, different for Priscilla.

    Thats exactly what I mean.

    <sigh> no, not the same people. They are contradictory actions even if they effect different people.

    No one said Priscilla was an emotionless killing machine, but her crying doesn't make her a victim, it doesn't make her complex. It makes her more interesting.

    Not always. When terrorists are killed for the sake of hostages that are being released from them, both killing and saving occure at the same time and they do not contradict each other.

    It's still contradictory. Taking a life and saving one are at the completely opposite ends of the spectrum. Doesn't matter the reason, it's still a contradiction. When anyone is killed to save another person does it always make it bad? No, but it's still a contradiction of action (or motive).
