I chose to make Nausicaa like a unintelligent normal teenager because I felt as if it would make the ending more interesting. I also wanted it to be this way because I wanted to show what it would look like if Nausicaa went from a brave corageous hero, to a sort of coward like person and I also wanted to add some comedy in the book like when the plane was turned into a fridge and how at the end they became ghosts that kept arguing like an old married couple.
