well, Relena, I think, is the whole center of the series itself, rightly
or wrongly...not because of force of character, but because she embodies
what peace there is left in the world she inhabits. In a way, her being
out of touch is a symbol of how peace-lovers in her world thought. she had
to grow up nfirst, it seems before everyone in the series could also grow
up. She doesn't have to be likeable, but she has to be solid in and of
herself. I actually like her for the conviction which she has...which, in
the beginning was quite misplaced. As for her "kill me Heero" thing, well,
it is a form of angst which I think symbolized how useless her dreams were

Quess isn't really evil. she's just one very stubborn and misguided girl.
unfortunately, she's also annoying and fell into the wrong crowd (whatever
