Goblin Slayer - Chapter 5
Apprentice Cleric is a porcelain ranked adventurer who appears as one of the protagonists in Chapter 1 of Goblin Slayer: Brand New Day, while also making minor appearances in the main series. She is in a two person party with Rookie Warrior.
In the Goblin Slayer Light Novel and Manga and Goblin Slayer New Day Manga Apprentice Cleric is seen with long blonde hair that reaches towards her back. However in the anime her hair color is switched with Rookie Warrior to have Redish-brown hair instead. The anime also makes both of them taller and appear older.
She has a bit of a tsundere in her but genuinely cares for the safety of Rookie Warrior as well as herself.
She, along with Rookie Warrior, tried to persuade Priestess to join their party while she was drinking tea alone. This was out of their concern and assumption that Goblin Slayer was just using her as bait for goblins.

Apprentice Cleric then notices the Priestess has an obsidian tag now. Getting their courage back together they use what little money they have left to buy a club to go and fetch Rookie Warrior's sword.

Both are surprised by how effective the club really is. Heading westward they spot some normal rats and continue their search. The Candle suddenly gets very hot and a Super Giant Cockroach approaches them. They run away but soon realize his sword is inside the super giant cockroach.
Realizing there's no escaping the super giant cockroach they turn to fight it, Rookie Warrior gets an idea and grabs the lantern off of Apprentice Cleric's belt, inadvertently ripping off her dress, much her her embarrassment. He then slams the lantern on the floor causing a massive fireball to erupt in front of them. The Super Giant Cockroach stops to avoid the fireball and takes flight.
In a mix of embarrassment and fear Apprentice Cleric pees herself. Snapping her back to reality Rookie Warrior tells her to use her power. She uses Holy Smite to wound the super giant cockroach which allows Rookie Warrior to smash it to death.
He then uses his dagger to cut open the super giant cockroach to retrieve his sword. That evening after throwing their clothes they were wearing into the wash, and putting on new ones, they reflect on the day's adventure and realize they have a long way to go still.
