Well, yeah, I assume anyone who understood what went on 0080 to be like
that, and I do think it is realistic for him to be annoying little kid.

But the thing is, I can't blame Quess for who she is. Maybe because I
read "High Streamer", but I feel sympathy for her than anything else. I
mean, her family has fallen apart due to Anadeur's womanizing, and he
never tried to understand her. But he even used MaHa to track her down
when she ran away from home. She was like a puppy in a small cage at the
old pet shop. As far as I'm concerned, she's no more annoying than
regular frustrated teenager. (Not that all the teenagers are annoying, in
defense of teenage members of this list. I was still teenager when I
joined in.)

Besides, she isn't the first brat in the Gundam. Amuro was, Camille was,
and in a way, Katsu was too.
