017 Dorothy

Can the timid archer rid herself of hesitation to master the bow?
A follower of the Elimine church, she works as Saul’s escort. However, she has difficulty handling Saul who seems to always seems to be womanizing. She has little confidence in her own appearance, and that influences her bowmanship –making her unable to show her true potential. With a kind and honest personality, she leaves a nice impression among allies.

Dorothy does not have confidence in her looks, bow arm, or even in her faith. Through advice from Yodel and Percival, she is able to grow little by little. After the war, she returned to her birthplace and lived peacefully.
Nonetheless, is the possible reason behind her lack of confidence in her physical appearance the fact that Saul never womanized with her?

 自分の容姿にも、弓の腕も、自分の信仰心にさえも自信が持てなかったドロシー。そんな彼女もパーシバルやヨーデルのアドバイスを受け、少しずつではあるが成長をとげていった。そしてベルン動乱終結後は生まれ故郷に戻り、おだやかに暮らしたという。
 それにしても、ドラシーが容姿に自信を持ってなかったのは、ふだんは女性にばかり声をかけるサウルが、彼女にはちょっともそうしなかったことも原因なのではないだろうか?
