Rigardo, also known as the Silver-Eyed Lion King, is a major antagonist in the anime/manga series Claymore, and serves as the main antagonist of the Northern Campaign arc. He is a male Awakened Being, and was ranked No. 2 of Isley's generation, back when the dangers of male Claymores had not been made aware. He considers Isley his lifelong rival, due to not being able to accept that he had obtained rank No. 1 instead of him. He is ultimately killed by Clare in a rampage.
He is voiced by Hiro Yuuki in the Japanese version of the anime and Vic Mignogna in the English version.
Rigardo appeared as a man in his early 20's. He had black hair and silver eyes. He could have possibly been blind as a human judging by the lifeless appearance of his eyes. As a Claymore his fate was not implicated.
His Awakened form resembled a silver-eyed, humanoid lion-ish creature with a wolfs' elongated snout, and is 3 m in height.
Rigardo appears calm and composed, which combined with his raw power, allowed him to be Isley's strongest and most efficient henchman. However, Isley reveals that he has witnessed a hidden, berserker-like side to Rigardo's personality that only shows up in battle, "Once your fuse has been lit, there's no stopping you" (Anime) which also made Rigardo the most bloodthirsty of all those in his army.
