Talk:Angua von Überwald
I was reading Thud! and came across the section where she's called Captain and then through the rest of the book she's a sergeant afterwards. I think I was hasty in the revision when I came across it but, it stuck out in my mind since she seemingly attained the rank in Thud! and then lost it later in the same book through mysterious circumstances.
- Flipping through, I noticed "sergeant" near the begging, middle and end. I didn't spot a "captain". --Old Dickens (talk) 02:45, 10 February 2013 (GMT)
Maybe its a mistake that's exclusive to the kindle edition I have. They only referenced her once as Captain in the beginning when she's showing Sally around so its easy to overlook. I don't have a physical copy to reference unfortunately.
Here's a screen shot of the passage with the title highlighted from the Kindle version of Thud! http://i45.tinypic.com/25oxy6v.jpg
- Ah yes. It's "Sergeant" in my copy (HarperTorch pb, unfortunately). You might make an annotation. --Old Dickens (talk) 14:51, 10 February 2013 (GMT)
Maybe in Thud! Terry just got ahead of himself and promoted her before time? This could be a relict of an earlier draft where Angua had been promoted: it might not have been picked up in the rewrite. Just speculating... AgProv (talk) 08:27, 11 February 2013 (GMT)
