    No he becomes Priscilla's chupa chups. You don't eat it, you lick it every so often at night time. Raki can be seen as the booster rocket attached to the space shuttle (named Clare san MKIII) before launching. This would make Jean as the parachute which Clare san MKIII needs to safely land back to humanity.

    maybe Raki will be the gateway to Claymore 2: Clair and Raki's kid!

    personally I see him as some form of untouchable cross of ninja and pirate. (the kid)

    And I think its already been amply shown that Raki will definitly NOT become lunch -.-

    or dessert
    Perhaps Priscilla is a sleeplwalker, though. In that case, he can become midnight snack . But yes, I suppose the mangaka has something else in store for him.

    this have been going through my mind as well.. what is the purpose of Raki in the anime/manga.

    Maybe we will see it later in the manga.. because the anime almost finish. Yes there most be something significant about this character i don't know why they taking so long to develop him ...

    I hope it turns out good for him..

    I think he's a strong and brave character beside how he act cowardly sometimes.. He most act that way when he is blaming him self that is will never be able to protect Clare..

    Check out that scene with him and Priscilla the one from the anime where she was eating the people guts and he hold her tight and told her to stop..crying..

    And why did Priscilla get so attach to him.. there most be something about Raki.

    He seems like a much more useless version of Sando (to anyone who's read Shin Angyo Onshi). Still he's the only character who's status is in any doubt at all, we all know how to classify the other characters, but for him there's at least a bit of ambiguity, which I hope will develop.

    Come to think of it, lots of characters from the two series are in parallel situations actually, just that their gender and personality are complete opposites...

    Well, his role in first part of manga (before time skip) was pretty clear - to bind Clare to humanity and not let her become a monster. The question is if he will get any new role in future or not (such as male claymore or something else).

    He is what represents us, the humans. A man showing the parallels of human and claymore, the difference and how we as humans cope with the problems possibly to show or reminds us that although claymores now are acting more and more humanlike, theyre not human?

    here's a very childish theory:

    maybe he's the one called to kill Priscilla. i don't know why but when Claymores supress their yoma power they become more powerful (or at least it seems that way) so why can't someone who doesn't have yoma power at all become powerful. there could be some cheesy plot who mixes the rabona's sword (who is sacred or something) and Raki's "humanity".

    I don't think that Raki is there to show us contrast between Claymore (Clare) and human (Raki). It would contradict the conception that passes through the whole manga - Claymors, although being half monsters, are still human.
