So who *has* survived, then?

-Sayla - Well, at least she managed to pilot the Gundam at least twi=ce
and not get killed, and was relatively happy at the end of the first

-Cecily Fairchild (F-91) - Kidnapped, nigh-brainwashed, trained to fly
the Vigna-Ghina, doesn't manage to kill anyone, defects *back*, tries to
kill her biological father, gets her MS blown up, survives, and is
rescued by the man she loves. Not dead, but hey, after all that, she may
as well be..!

Any others?
