Everyone on the site with the possible exception of Langsta is too old to be a Gundam pilot. Doom is about right to be the veteran Ace pilot that takes Langsta under his wing. Iceshadow, J. Agawhatsit, and I would be either cannon fodder GM/Zaku pilots, maintenance crewmen, or bridge bunnies.
I'm pulling for bridge bunny. If I get stationed on the White Base expy I've got a 90% chance of survival and a 50% chance of a major promotion before the sequel begins.
I was thinking more like Zechs Merquis, but maybe you're right, I'll settle for Lt. Lucrezia Noin.
