A former #1 Claymore that was killed many years ago. She was considered one of the eight most powerful Claymores and because of this she was revived along with Hysteria and Cassandra by Dae.
Roxanne was Claymore No. 1 of her Generation prior to the series start. She was originally Ranked 35 but slowly made her way to number 1 by following and copying the abilities of other Claymores she was parternerd with for hunts. Eventually she reached No. 2 and met Claymore No. 1 of her generation, Cassandra. She tried to befriend Cassandra, even adopting a left-handed style to express her adoration. Cassandra was flattered, as most other warriors kept their distance from her and the two managed to strike a friendship of sorts. While sparring, Roxanne noted that Cassandra's swordsmanship couldn't even match that of Elizabeth's, mystifying Roxanne just what the higher-ranked warrior was hiding. Despite seeing her as a friend, Cassandra refused to take Roxanne with her on hunting missions. Roxanne, however, managed to secretly watch Cassandra battle an Awakened Being. It was then that Roxanne gave Cassandra the nickname "Dust Eater." After Cassandra befriended the new No. 35 after saving her she went on awakened hunt with Roxanne. Roxanne allowed the Awakened being to capture and torment the young warrior, even after she only being reduced to nothing but her head. The remaining members returned from the "failed" hunt without a single injury. Because of what she did Roxanne spread a rumor around the organization about Cassandra plotting a rebellion. Roxanne and many warriors gathered at the Organizations Headquarters in order to subdue Cassandra. Cassandra used her "Dust Eater" technique in an attempt to kill Roxanne in retaliation, however she was stopped by Roxanne who used her Blade of Evil technique to stop her. With Cassandra unable to fight back Roxanne and the other warriors finished her off.
Roxanne is created by Norihiro Yagi as one of the three new Abyssal Ones. Like most of the characters in Claymore, Norihiro used the names of characters from his previous works for his newest work.
Roxanne is skilled in yoki synchronization, allowing her to copy and master other warriors' techniques with ease. Among the techniques and fighting styles she copied were the "Blade of Evil" of former Claymore No. 31, Uranus, the yoki-sensing-dependent style of former Claymore No. 9, Neideen , and the "beautiful" sword technique of former Claymore No. 5, Elizabeth.
Another of her abilities is to completely erase her presence from a specific target.
When Roxanne awakened her body became a frail-looking creature with very slender hips, legs and plate-like structures around her head and body. Her arms have become segmented with wing-like appendages that are adorned with multiple blades.
