I disagree. I would argue that the Priscilla Isley met was her regressed infantile personality. Maybe she looked like an adult in size, but the persona she showed after killing Teresa was absent. Just look at pages 9 and 11 of extra chapter 3. Her dialogue is utterly childish, with questions of why people are running away or Rigardo, "not looking tasty." Compare that dialogue to Priscilla's lines just as she awakens or even when she goes on the attack in the chapter 90s/100s. She talks differently.
I would argue what really sets "adult" Priscilla from her infantile personality is cruelty. Adult Priscilla is cruel and mocks her opponents. She mocked Irene after tearing her arm off and Alicia/Beth and so on. The Priscilla of the extra chapter shows none of that. I just do not see the Priscilla of the extra chapter as the adult Priscilla at all.
Also, I am not comparing Miata to Priscilla in terms of power, but rather how the state of their personalities hold them back.

Concerning the physicaL strength.
Miata is a child, Galatea a woman, I'd say in her late twenties - and that is, for a Claymore, a long life to live. For a Claymore it is like getting stronger nearly all her life (even without training). How I came to that conclusion is simple: When a Claymore awakens, she unleashes all her potential (as stated at the time of Priscilla's Awakening). However, up until now, no matter how old she was, every Claymore who awakened got a power boost - meaning, that there was still potential. Ergo, a Claymore becomes stronger gradually, no matter what.
Taking the fact that Galatea already was number three and the seven years passed, I daresay that she may be even stronger than a your regular number one. Miata could not win to her, but she did not lose either. So saying that she is on number one level sounds pretty much legit to me.
On a side note: how much does Miata weigh compared to Galatea? Most likely less then half, so it should not be a problem for Galatea to toss her around while clashing in mid-air. Strength? Doesn't matter.
Prissy still would tear her to shreds, though, as long as she has not gotten weaker in the blob.
PS: Please, for the sake of our poor eyes, use punctuation. At least a little.
I think miata is one of the best ways to keep prissy distracted or pinned down (using her super strenght) She isn't strong enough to defeat prissy by herself but she can certainly hold her own. As for comparing her to the other ghosts, i think she's slightly superior to miria and clare in combat effectiveness, just because of her raw power
Ahh, Tabitha..... One of the best pieces of background scenery Yagi has ever drawnQuote:
Clarice? May die (rather not), but then Miata will go AO (yeah yeah, she's no number one, but you know about what I mean).
Miata? Mustn't die.
Tabitha? Will eventually rule the world (and Miria).
Oh, and Nixl:
I don't get that one, will you be so kind to explain?Quote:
If Tabitha is still alive by the end of the manga and in a position of power/authority I may very well eat my keyboard.
As fro Brolatea (Bro+Galatea), she has always been helping characters out from Claire, Miria, Clarice/Miata, and finally Tabitha. She is a bro.
