Oh Shi-

Lets get out of here people! And for god sakes, hide those teddy bear knickers!

...

Would the fact that Triela is older than she looks make her legal? Lets see 13~14 plus 1~3 years... Gah, still can't make 18!

The Age of Consent in Italy is 14, so you need not worry about "15 will get ya 20".

The only thing not making her legal is the fact her cyborg body still makes her look younger. I can't understand why they don't (since I think they can) give her a bit of a older body.

She just needs a bit of an upgrade really, remember the chapter where Sandro did his makup magic and she looked like she was 21! Now that'd be a dream come true.

They can make the girls look older with clothes, cosmetics, hairstyle, platform shoes and prosthesis like fake breasts.

However, they can't change the physical dimensions of the girls without replacing the arms and legs and while that would make them taller, since their heads and torso/abdomens would be the same, they'd look gangly and spindly and probably...odd...

I dunno, again, some girls have less biological parts in the torso than others. Like Henrietta I remember says she doesn't have her uteris anymore and so on, when Triela is complaining about her cramps. So I suppose in that respect, they can replace more than just arms and legs.

My personal view is that Henrietta's uterus was damaged through forced sexual intercourse with her assailant so they removed it because it was quicker and easier then repairing it.

Compound that with possible knife wound/puncture damage and it might have been outright unrepairable.

Grown man vs little girl. She can be heavily damaged with the least amount of activity.
Truth be told, I know girls who have been raped at an early age by men, in a large proportion of the time, they needed to be surgetically patched up or corrected because of the assault.

Ok, since weíve started to learn a good bit more about the girls and their handlers in recent chapters and episodes, I thought it might not be a bad time to revise their sections in the wiki. I also took the liberty of trimming them a bit, since in many cases they were more plot summaries than character summaries. Let me know what you think, please.



Originally from Tunisia, Triela was kidnapped and smuggled to Amsterdam by the Mafia where she was used in a violent snuff film.[3][4]. She was rescued by Hilshire, who took her to the SWA where she was converted into a cyborg without his knowledge. Extremely pragmatic with just a hint of rebellion, Triela has a sarcastic wit and prefers to wear masculine clothing[5], though she is seen wearing more feminine clothes at times. She serves as a sort of ďbig sisterĒ to the other girls of the SWA, helping them with their troubles and concerns. Triela's preferred weapons are the SIG-Sauer P230 SL pistol (after later losing her P230 to Pinocchio, she is given the newer version 232-SL as a replacement) and the M1897 Trench Shotgun with the bayonet attachment. She has also been shown with a selection of Heckler and Koch weaponry, including the G3A3 battle rifle, the P7M8 pistol, UMP submachine gun and MP7 PDW. Triela takes an intense pride in her mastery of martial arts, and therefore develops a fierce resentment towards Pinocchio when defeated by him in this manner during their first duel. In Volume 10 she learns the whole story of how she came to the SWA and paired with Hillshire, though the conditioning is affecting her memories, as well, and she fears she will not live much longer.

It's because she's always received the most focus which automatically makes her the most-polished character which is why the majority of fans like her. I expect she is Yu's favorite character, which is why he focused so much on her.

TVtropes is just a site to parody the real Wiki. The damn thing changes so often as people drop by to add their opinions that I read it just For Teh Lulz. Heck I didn't even see that entry about Ensemble Darkhorse the last time I checked. Whatever. TVtropes is still a good site to have a laugh at the stuff on TV.

I wouldn't say more focus equals more popularity. Sometimes it's the opposite. Sometimes people hate the focus character ebcause it gets that major focus that could be taken by other character. Triela is just a good character, that most people can like.

Thatís very true. No other GSG character has gotten the attention that Petra has, yet everyone still hates her. If you think about it, everyone likes Beatrice and we hardly got to know her at all. Front time has nothing to do with it. A good character is a good character, plain and simple.

"Everybody" is such a strong word...

Anyway I don't hate her. Rather I see her as 1. Fanservice material and 2. An introduction to the 2nd Gen girls. Triela comes across as the most "human" and has the most realistic perception of the world around her among the bunch. I believe I speak for everyone when I say that we relate to her better because of that (well, better than Rico but this is subjective).

If you ask me, Petra is Petra and she has her purpose in the story, just like Triela, Henrietta, Angelica, Rico, Beatrice, Claes, Chiara and Silvia (did I miss anyone out?) all have their purposes and roles in the story.

I'm going to have to back MikhailN here.

Now Triela's by far and away my favorite character form the series (followed by Hillshire etc). Yes she's the most human, plus I'm also a sucker for those sort of "leader by default/everyone's emotional support" type characters.

However, having been on the forums before reading the GSG manga, when Petra arrived I was expecting to find the bitch-queen-of-the-universe. But honestly I didn't find anything particularly dis-likeable on that level about the character. Yes, she's different from the 1st Gen girls (and I was NOT hot on the attitude displayed by the other 2nd Gen cyborgs), but to me she came across as another confused kid with the added suck of later teenage hormones to add to the mix. Like MikhailN said: she has a role to play in the GSG-verse and, well: I don't know about anyone else but I often find that things I dislike actually make a universe richer and better overall than if I agreed with everything that happened.

That said I was more than happy to get back to a somewhat Triela-centric arc Razz

You're not going to get lynched. At least not by me

This is where I usually like to make a distinction between GSG fans and Triela/Angelica/Rico/you get the idea fans.

When the Angelica died the Angelica fans were up in arms and going nuts. At the same time you'll see another group I think of as GSG fans who feel sad, but after a while they took a step back and said, "Hey, she died. But because she died the story became a lot more interesting/developed etc etc"

Neither group is wrong. It's completely ok to cheer on one girl or appreciate the fact that all the girls are playing a role in the story and their death is essential for Gunslinger Girl to carry on. The only group that is wrong is the one that goes "Why is everyone crying? Angelica? You mean that bunch of lines on paper has a name? What about these lines? Ooo so these lines are called a table?" Guh?

Triela has received significantly more "page time" than Petrushka or any other girl has, which has also given her more "screen time" than any of the other girls in the anime (of which Petrushka has received none and Elizabetta only a cameo).

Because she appeared first, many sites assumed that Henrietta was supposed to be the "core" character, but it's clear that Triela is the core character. Yes, it's an ensemble cast, but she gets top-billing in the credits and the most focus from the writers (writer, in this case).

...I still don't identify well with Triela... with Hillshire, sure, but... I actually identify a lot better with Claes than Triela. Though if you guys want somone to lynch... the character I identify with best out of the series is Jean. To the point that Giuseppe actually reminds me of my own brother a little... and Alessandro reminds me of several annoying co-worker/subordinates I've had through the years.

I can see where Jean is coming from, but I can't really say he is going about it right. But if there is a character I want to see get what he deserves it's Jean.

Screen time? The only thing about Petra we didnít see was her mother giving her birth.

Careful, Danjo. Next thing we know, Yu elects to give Petra some flashback scenes featuring just that.

I know it's off-topic, but that really reminded me of something...
Spoiler:

on topic.. Triela... lessee...
well, I'm pretty much with Kisk on this one. While Petra has had the most coverage in terms of percentage of the time that she has existed in the series versus percentage of chapters dedicated to her... Triela has by far the most chapters dedicated to her throughout the series. I think she's also the only one with a multi-volume story arc centered on her.
...Not that I think this is a bad thing. She's a truly awesome character with plenty of depth and even a little comic relief to her... she's just not the most interesting concept Yu has cooked up, in my opinion.

I think I'd have to agree with that. In terms of the concept behind each girl, the thoroughly brainwashed Rico or falling apart Angelica are much more interesting (to name two). The concepts are far more out there, and watching how people react to that and interact with them makes for interesting reading/watching.

However, being the most interesting concept there I think probably isn't the point of Triela, what she does do is ground the series. She is probably the best developed character, and is definately the most "normal" of the cyborgs. However, I don't think the more unusual girls would be quite so interesting were they not juxtaposed against Triela's normality. Being able to watch how the SWA personnell (not to mention "civillians" like Mario, Mimi, Roberta or even the GIS men) interact with Triela and then how they treat the other Cyborgs... well look at how the two Section One investigators opinions changed between Rico and Triela. Without that there would be a possiblity that someone reading the manga or watching the anime may come to see those more out there characters as being "normal" within the GSG universe.

Flip side of the coin is that, as likeable a character as she is, Triela on her own may not have been as popular without the other girls to compare against either.

Why does one think that Fernando hates Jean so much? Or Rachel of Rico? Damn guy rubs him the wrong way. (You'd understand this if you read Solution's Resolution)

As for Triela/Hillshire? Fernando and Rachel has no issues wth them. They are simillar in that they were brough in from the outside and that they both work (or at least want too) alone.

I can see that happening. He has already had her do everything else including losing her virginity before going to the hospital from that dancer guy... If I were him, I'd lie too to get some of that poonyang!

Considering how regimented her life is at the Academy, I would not be surprised if Elizabetta was a virgin when she jumped off the hospital. Plus a pregnancy would derail her career.

If nothing else, I'm glad that Yu has taken advantage of Petra's newness to give us some insight into the process of choosing, building and training a cyborg. All the Generation 1 girls were just dropped in fully formed and operational.

I'd agree - furthermore, when Duvalier is reading up on Elizabeta's background he watches a documentary on the Bolshoi Ballet, and there's an interview session with the students: Elizabeta directly says that her regime's so demanding that she "can't even think about boys", which I'd say clinches the argument.

Its a known fact that dancers sleep with their teachers & producers in order to get the top notch position in productions. "Cant think about boys" is a statement that she can not get emotionally entangled in relationships. But if such a boy is #1 in the producer's eye, then she would sleep with him in order to be his dance partner in the show. This is what he promised her before she left for the hospital. As such for that much attention, there is a priced to be paid.

Why do you think that many of them die from various diseases, like for the past 20+ years: HIV/AIDS?

I still think she has not had carnal relations, not that it really matters in the end whether she has or not.

On the other hand it could be progress on the Agency's part. Pre-program the entire Basic Training phase straight into them and you can avoid massive hilarity and internet memes (IMO Henrietta staring down the barrel of her Sig is hilarity). The downside is that all the 2G girls are so similar that they might as well have popped off an assembly line (which they did)

I'm not sure it is "training" as much as it is "practice" since they're always at the range. Claes' mission in the subway might very well have just been a test of her conditioning to make sure she'd kill a stranger when ordered to do so.

Unfortunately, they can not program (at least with the type 2s, as stated with Petra's examination) the personalities out of them.
Then again, once a bitch, always a bitch.

Claes' subway thingus, in my opinion, was a form of training far more worthwhile than any time at the rifle range. Nothing beats 'on-the-job' training where actual human beings are your targets.
