Zion Zum Daikun was assasinated by Degin Zabi using the old poison tipped
needle-in-a-ring weapon while Zion lay in bed in front of concerned family &
friends. This scene was animated and I'm sure it was included in the Movies...

But she did mention having to kill Char herself for what he was planning...I
wonder where she was in CCA?

I don't really know if or how evenly they divided up the gold though. Of the White
Base crew it seems some were much better off than others in later years. I wonder
if they even remembered to take the gold in the heat of battle or divide it up...
