Another example of a Ctarl-Ctarl's regenerative abilities is how Aisha
survived Shimi's explosive whip in the fifteenth episode. Shimi may
have only had an intention to incapacitate his foes but the attack
still looked very powerful. Back to the lasers, in the light novel El Dorado Covered with Clouds (El Dorado
refers to a planet rather than the MacDougall ship for some reason)
Aisha was shot several times in her stomach with a laser rifle, hence
the mention of their usefulness against Ctarl-Ctarls.
was penetrated and there's little doubt she was very vulnerable after
it, but she still recovered shortly after. In the same novel this
ability was likened to a battle droid's; "the only sure way to make
sure they're dead is to remove or destroy the head". Jim Hawking also
said something similar in the sixteenth episode when Aisha fought Lady
Iraga. Worriedly he commented that even a Ctarl-Ctarl would be history
if their head was smashed in. Are we still talking about Ctarl-Ctarl
here or zombies?
At one point in the show it was said that a Ctarl-Ctarl's
strength is ten times a human's, but this could have been exaggerated.
There's certainly some truth to it. Ctarl-Ctarls are banned from some
tournaments for example and many scenes in the show have demonstrated
their strength. When Aisha first met Gene at Blue Heaven she used a
whip which must have been extremely heavy as it could smash through
concrete with ease.
Additionally, Aisha had no problems getting through heavy doors,
shown in episodes sixteen and nineteen. It's thought that like their
skin's toughness a Ctarl-Ctarl's superhuman strength increases as their
beast state progresses.
High Metabolic Rate
It's no secret that Aisha can really chow down. Just about
anybody would love to do that with no apparent consequences. It's not
as simple as that, however. Given the chance you'd think she'd become a
world-class professional eater out of choice. Well, that's not entirely
true. This metabolism has a caveat...
