        Noble Cousin!

        Greetings from Solveig!

        Those are not exactly itty bitty people. And, they are young and still
        growing. Add to that the weight-gain regimin they put them through and
        they turn out pretty big. Even the little ones are usually big boys
        by the time they make it into the juuryou division.
