It was a body capable of enormous leverage

I will separate this sentence into two part, “It was a body” and “capable of enormous leverage”. I am not sure what it is of the second part in grammar structure.


The younger of the two was a stranger to me

I am not sure about the part “to me”.

I assume it is either an:

  • adverbial
  • attribute

to modify the stranger or the whole sentence.

From here https://www.englishgrammar.org/subject-attributes/ we can know what is an attribute in Noun Phrase.
