    Default Priscilla kills or doesn't kill little girls?



    I'm currently having trouble where everyone else got the idea that Priscilla doesn't kill little girls and goes out her way to avoid killing them when she kills everyone else if she's hungry. Care to explain anyone?

    I'm pretty sure that Eclipse translated it in the anime as no little girls got harmed by Priscilla... could be why people have conflicting beliefs on all this.

    my scanlation pretty much said that priscilla didn't kill *any* little girls. i think plot-wise, that would make more sense. little girls are simply too weak for her to even take notice.

    if she *only* missed claire, there's a pretty big plot-hole right there. unless it's the whole claire-reminded-her-of-herself thing.

    Im backing up my buddy Phantom Miria.



    I went to beg my friend to let me use his labtop and I managed to get this from him. (English scanlated version)

    I took snapshots from Eclipse. They only mentioned about Priscilla briefly. Did not touch on the topic of who she did not killed at all. Maybe the anime was short on time.

    If I had to take a guess at why Priscilla didn't touch Clare but she killed everyone and anyone she saw then it'd probably be this.

    Teresa spared Priscilla out of pity. Notice how she becomes so pissed off being pitied on by her enemy? It could be a jesture of ultimate revenge on the deceased Teresa by taking pity on Clare as Teresa did for her and out of scorn she decided to ignore Clare like she wasn't even there.

    From what we know, both from manga and anime, what we perceive to be the bestiality of Awakens is not completely true. They don't act instinctively and not completely overcome with hunger for guts and bloodlust, they retain a consciousness.

    Think about Ophelia's reaction to her own metamorphosis and how she responded to Clare's determination to kill Priscilla. Recall Riful's lack of enthusiasm to participate in Duff fight with the Claymores. And what about Riful stepping in to save Duff? Awakens are not animals solely motivated by hunger, but retain what we would think to be self consciousness and nature before awakening.

    Thus Pris' decision to kill or not to kill may be motivated by her hunger, or perhaps self preservation, but not beyond that. Just as the 3 who were sent to scout the Claymores in Pieta were acknowledged by Easley to easily be lost to bloodlust, on the contrary there must be those who won't be lost to bloodlust and retain a clear mind - such as Riful. Since we know there are Awakens who can think with a clear mind, it should be possible that Priscilla falls into such a category and retains lot of her personality, memories and nature even in her awakened form. She is clearly capable of emotions beyond bloodlust.

    My version of translation:

    See the difference? It is clea r that someone made a mistake in translation. The question is: who?

    Hmm... a few seconds after I opened this thread just now, I got to thinking...


    What if Miria's picture //translation is right? Then we go... BAM BAM BAM Ma'Fu((en BAM!!! What if Riful was watching Priscilla's fight against Teresa and counted that as a rampage and counted Clare as the spared girl?

    It could work... Right after she killed the squad, and wounded Irene, she said she was hungry... If Riful was watching just that time, then Clare could be the girl she's thinking of.

    Works? Doesn't?

    Hate to throw us all off the track yet again but just gave it more thought.

    Remember the time when Ophelia mentions that her brother was killed by the one horned demon? Yet she failed to explain to us just how was it that her brother was ripped to shreds but she survived? Assuming that one horned yoma was Priscilla which I think its a given, then the question is was she spared or was she really saved by her brother who looked like a bad outline of Rigald but isn't Rigald. If she was spared then thats enough reason to believe the latter translation of Priscilla went from town to town killing everyone while securing every young girls their safety.

    It's not impossible either translation.

    My reasoning was that Priscilla spared Clare and only Clare because Teresa spared her and now it was her time to spare Clare why? to redeem her honour and humiliate the now deceased Teresa by trampling all over her pity which was the original source of Priscilla's awakening to start with.

    Both translation is plausible but which one is the real one? Can anyone care to donate to me the raw page 187? I have a few japanese friends who would be happy to translate for me whats exactly written in fluent English.

    ^ The funny thing is that I have just watched episode 14 where Ophelias story is told and was going to post it here

    I highly doubt that her brother was that great of a warrior to be able to stop Priscilla, so it is possible that Ophelias life was spared.
