I doubt Galatea would let Miata awaken. She should be more skilled than anyone when it comes to yoki sync.
On that note, I'm wondering whether it's possible Galatea lost her "edge" as a warrior, akin to Teresa. After all, seven years without properly training will take a toll. Especially since she was more of a cheeky type, rather than tough and hardened. That could explain why she opted to stay behind.
True to that, Galatea is still strong. She was able to hold on her own against Miata who is No. 1 material and that is something.
She can still manipulate yoki dough, and that is quite useful in certain situations.
Galatea is the Queen of the Nuns XD But seriously though, her Yoki synch alone could probably pull Cassandra free i mean she froze the Turtle Awakened that was launched into Rabona by Destrilla
Galatea wouldn't decide to stay behind all this time due to her skills weakening, even though I think her combat skills have probably weakened a little anyway. She was often times lighthearted and "cheeky" in her warrior days, but she was never cowardly. Not to imply that you might think she is a coward in her decision to stay out of combat, but her fear losing her life due to being out of practice would be the only reason. Instead, she said in at least two separate occasions (maybe more) that she is "not like the Ghosts". If my memory is correct, she said she isn't into the Ghosts' interests in the chapter where the Ghosts arrive to fight Agatha, and then again she says she's staying out of it when Deneve+crew set out to go find Miria at the Org HQ. It would seem Yagi really meant it that she sees herself as a sort of pacifist (unless somebody tries to **** with Rabona), and, this would probably justify her not helping out with Cassandra... even though it would still make sense for her to help out with this.
Ah, I meant to say, she decided to remove herself from the battle, not because she is weak, rather she no longer has the heart (or the edge) for it.
But if it came to it, if she had to put her life on the line, I believe she would be more useful than Helen or Deneve, certainly stronger than them even if she is rusty. Maybe even as strong as Miria or stronger. We often forget that she was in actuality a no. 2 (her stats reflect that as well) since Beth was Alicia's equal.

Galatea's role now is a protector and caretaker, and an advisor to the ghosts. I have a strong feeling in the future Galatea would be taking care of the trainees once everything is settle down. (Galatea would be the Headmistress of a Claymore Trainees School for learning about yoki release and control, yoki sensing, yoki synchronization, yoki suppression, regeneration, and battle skills, etc lol)

@ Dark Night
You and I have the same idea of Galatea being a No.2 in power lol

And ah i see i cant wait to find out "youngling" makes it sounds like offspring i really hope that things turns out to be Riful and duphs child (and its possible that Riful was pregnant as agatha said awakened beings are no different from a "real woman" when they are in human form.....so maybe before duph lost himself he tryed to bring riful back to life by infecting her and what he ended up doing was "infecting" his own child that was growing inside riful....and as we have no base line to compaire it to we have no way of determining how long and what a pregnant awakened being would look/what changed it would go through .
You are right about galatea being devoted to the holy city really when it comes down to it i would say she is no longer a "claymore" but a "holy warrior" of the city just like the other guards (they treat galatea different from the other warriors....they even still call her "sister latea"....they treat her as if she was fully human and they seem to have great respect for her
If it is there child (not saying its not), its odd that they introduced it as a lower torso with blood sloshing out. From what I remember, dauf was holding the upper torso when fought Priscilla for the last time. Both parts would 'seem' to be halves of the same whole? Idk, maybe the child was located in the bottom half and simply hijacked what was left of rieful? Either way, I hope we get an explanation.
As to the chapter, I'm overall fine with it. It's obviously an AB intro chapter mainly designed to show off some of there abilities. It's pretty short (26 pages), and seems more like a chapter to get all the pieces in place for the final epic phases of the battle.

more beautiful form. Despite the fact that the initial image of Hysteria's form seemed lopsided/top-heavy, there are images such as this that show that Hysteria's first form wasn't all that bad.
I really don't think we can automatically say that Hysteria and Roxanne are really weak just because these ABs managed to damage Cassandra and avoid being eaten. Cassandra's attention is divided and she hasn't even entered DE mode yet. Cassandra immediately busted out the DE the moment Roxanne started attacking. It may very well be that Roxanne's whips travel at velocities only AO-level beings can avoid consistently. Maybe she wouldn't even need to release her blades against this lot and just chop them to pieces with her regular attacks. Hysteria's speed may also be such that these ABs won't even get the chance to transform before seeing gaping wounds in their torsos.
That's exactly what I thought of, as if almost everyone just made their conclusion right away without giving it a second thought thinking what if it was the other way around?? Roxanne and Cassandra were on like another levels as both were able to kill the other one if only had the right plan and tactics, while here even with all the help they can get and all their numbers and powers they were just able to stop her!!!! Just how powerful were those N.1s!! Really.. I think what we saw here is the same when Teresa fought Priscilla, as we couldn't conclude just how powerful Teresa, Priscilla or even Irena from that battle (the ESs were able to do so). So if thinking about it in this way, those 3 AOs were not only strong and powerful, they were demons indeed stronger than anything we have seen. Even Isley I bet wouldn't live against a combo of all these warriors and ABs against him alone and Cassandra is looking at them as if they were garbage!Quote:
Yagi doesn't leave a character alive unless they have a purpose, even those he killed and felt they were meant for something, he provided it in an ES. So for her to live. So she either has a huge role in the main land (as a leader or something) or she will show her powers trying to stop something very dangerous from happening.Quote:
I don't think that Isley would have more of a problem with defeating Hysteria than he had with Luciella. As you've pointed out yourself he has homing arrows which should travel faster than any AO, Hysteria being no exception. And with Hysteria's armour being as weak as we've seen one shot would be enough to kill her. I think Riful would have more problems than him although IMO she would win against her too. The same goes for Luciella who would eat her the moment she would be touched by her (so during her attack). The way I see it Hysteria would be defeated by any AO if she fought them but thanks to her speed she could choose not to and just fly away or escape using ground route.
