if you can show me the image thatd be good so i can elaborate on the details, also they still need to be re-written because right now they dont make any sense with how they flow in the article. if all of this came from during or after whatever happens in volume 8 it should be written to show that it was a change over time, something she gained rather than started out with. in the mean time im going to remove the changes that are currently there, message me back so we can discuss a way to add the changes
in regards to her strength being 1 of the 5 strongest in the village as well as the part about her healthy life giving her a more fit body, were these both from volume 8 as well? other questions would be if the other 4 were humans or if it counted the goblins, and does it mean that shes one of the only 5 people in the village who can actually fight or have the villagers been trained now to where they can all fight to a basic degree?
The part about healthy body refers to "working a lot and eating a lot, which result in strong biceps and abdominal muscles". I can't say if she gained this in volume 8 but I find more believable to think she gained this gradually through her farmer's life.
The "5 strongest" refers exclusively to humans. Goblins and others are excluded are excluded.
From what I read so far of volume 8, villagers "can" fight but more in a "we are not helpless peasants anymore" way than in an trully effective one. It is true though they face an opposition (ogres) far more powerful than "simple" human warriors. Goblins do the real combat. As this is from a really quick reading of the book I think it's better to wait for more official translations.
yea i have no idea what really happens in volume 8 aside from a few vague details so its hard for me to make calls about it. do you know if the whole "5 strongest" happened as a result of training that occured after the sunlight scriptures attack in the first volume (either from the goblins or training individually) or were these people strong before that?
as for the healthy bit the reason im confused about that is because it already states that "the hard farmers life has yet to leave its mark on her" which the way i interpret it means that there are no visible effects from farming as of yet. although now that i think about it i may have misinterpreted what you wrote, if you could give me your own interpretations of the two quotes and how you think they either do or dont contradict, thatd be helpful.
The "5 strongest" reference appears only in the description in the page I uploaded as far as I remember. This is not some sort of semi-official title in the village, the expression written can almost be translated as "I fear that currently she is the owner of a physical strenght amongst the top 5 in the village". I think the author just wanted to show she is physically strong.
For the healthy bit my own interpretation of the expression comes from how the wife of the former village chief was described : "Although she formerly had the charm of a slim, delicate beauty, many years of hard farm work have washed it almost completely away. Her face was full of freckles. Now she was only a skinny, old auntie with disheveled, shoulder-length black hair."
I think the "mark of the hard farmer life" refers more premature aging and beauty degradation than physical fitness. In that sense this would mean that Enri, despite being a farmer, was still a beautiful young girl.
"Growing up in Carne village and living there all her life, Enri has always lived the life of a simple farmer's daughter. Due to her healthy lifestyle, Enri has grown to be physically fit, to the point where she is considered as one of the strongest 5 in the village"
from what i have gathered from you they seem to be related so i have combined them both under 'background' for several reasons: these details may seem to refer to appearance and ability, but i think she possesses a more toned physique, making her strength not apparent when looking at her. as for ability, it could go there but it seems like a rather basic level of strength that should be instead listed under background, since it was gained from her life as a farmer. putting the details under either appearance or ability seems to give them more credit than i think they may be worth. however i do think they are worth mentioning, which is why i decided background.
adding this under background may cause a small confusion in relation to abilities since they may give off opposite impressions, however that can easily be fixed with a few word edits. what are your thoughts?
I think this is indeed more a piece of background. She is fit and strong, it helps define her and her place in the village, but in the village and amongst it's human inhabitants only, this is not a true combat ability she can use against any threat the village can encounter now.
