Legend said that the weapons housing the spirits of either beast would grant the holder power unrivaled throughout history. Chiara sought such absolute might to fulfill her ambitions. However, the two opposing wills were too much for her mind and soul to bear, and she became little more than a berserker. She found the sacrifice acceptable regardless, for she merely desired the utter annihilation of the world that imposed naught but misfortune upon her.
Chiara is both a feminine Italian given name and a surname, variant of Clara of Latin origin. Derived from the Late Latin masculine name Clarus, the meaning is "bright, famous, light, clear". Name of several Italian saints, most notably Chiara of Assisi (1194-1253), one of the first followers of Saint Francis of Assisi.
