This is the beginning of a flashback arc. Teresa, the most powerful Claymore of her era, easily kills a group of Yoma, including one that had been abusing a young and mute Clare. Since she has no one else to care for her, Clare follows Teresa through the wilderness, despite Teresa's best efforts to abandon her.
