Quote:I don't want to get into specifics but an Elite standing 8'6, from a high gravity planet, and being twice the width of the average human while also being highly muscular should weight around 700lbs.
I am 6'3 215 lbs, Shack is 7'2 320 lbs, do the math.
This bothers me, I know it is silly but I can't help it.
318lbs is a species wide average. Ripa 'Moramee is merely a deviation from that average. (I assume that was who was in your link. For some reason it will not open correctly for me)
Page 5 of The Flood (Or 17 in the newer version) might be able to help you as well. Their armour makes them appear larger than they actually are. That, as well as the 7' figures we have in the Bestairuim and Encyclopaedia, might suggest that they are naturally 7'4 without their armour on and 8'6 with it on. Therefore, that 318lbs number may be them without their armour on (Given how it was listed alongside the 7 number). They are also similar in strength to Spartans. You could expect their weight to then roughly fall in and around that of the Spartans, which it sort of does.
That is how I try to sort through all of these numbers anyway.
Edit: Got the link working finally
. I think you formatted it incorrectly. But yeah, look at his armour. It is very bulky. (Ignore that part about Ripa in my post)
