He going to talk Aina out of helping Ginias with his crack-pot scheme of
destorying Jaburo with the Asparagus Mk. III, and he's going to do it alone.
He is a leader that does not want to see his troops face casulalties (which
is very evident in Ep. 2). Furthermore, he want to do this himself so that
he can at least save Aina. They do have a intertwined past, and I still
believe he has her watch (as of EP 4, that how far I have gotten so far).

He's generally a good guy, a Gundam pilot who is destined to live a tragic
life, solely because he piloted a Gundam. I believe he has good odds of
getting hooked up with Aina in the end, though killing her off could be good
for the story, ala 0080. However, I doubt that coz:

  Seabrook got Cecily,
  Usso got Shakti (SP?)
  Domon got Rain
  Heero got Relena (actually, I'd think it's the reverse)
  Garod got Tifa (Is that true, the live happily ever after?)
  Kou got Nina...
