Well, Mashiro doesn't count, since her last name is "Windbloom".

Wikipedia's article on "My-Otome GEMs" said that Galleria, Arika's origin, is in Windbloom, but I don't know where they took that from.
It can't be, because IIFC, Mashiro and the others at Garderobe make a big deal over how Arika's hometown is some far-off hick place that no one's ever heard of, and if Galleria was a part of Windbloom, Arika shouldn't have been shocked at all the technology, etc. when she arrived, since Windbloom was the only country in the world that really had any at that point.

Quote:
Also, in "Mai-Otome Saga", Ayane Hazakura is from Windbloom.
"Otome Saga" is that novel, right? Without the kanji I can't know for certain, but "Hazakura" means "cherry tree in leaf"...so that's another plant name.

According to the Japanese Wikipedia, Ayane's name is written in katakana, not kanji: アヤネ・ハザクラ.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't her name written in kana? Isn't kana used in My-Otome to make the names seem like their names are from an English speaking country?

At first it was Takumi, but he has vanished due to Akira's defeat. Then she realised that she loves Tate and he became her MIP, but he also dissapeared (Shiho's defeat). And in the end she put all her feelings towards Mikoto

If child is defeated, the MIP "dies", but no opposite.

Yes, when a MIP dies, the HiME isn't permanently depowered - she will simply be unable to summon the Child unless she finds a new MIP.

(By the way, does this restriction apply to Elements?)

Where does Miyu say she watches after another girl? I don't remember anything like that.

Episode 24 I think it was, Miyu had a flashback "Miss, Those who inherit your blood are growing healthily" If you look closely, that girl in the flashback is Alyssa just not as a bird.

Miyu mentions that Arika is a descendant of "that person". It's possible that it was Alyssa, who is long dead.

I thought that the hime could still summon her child, just that the child wouldn't be able to reach their full potential till their mistress found one. For example Natsuki, who could still summon duran w/o an MVP till she relized it was shizuru and mai whos memories for tate let her summon kagutsuchi.

But there was a period where Natsuki couldn't summon Duran and when she did realize it, she finally could.

Natsuki's original MIP was her mother. After the meeting with John Smith, when she learned that her mother was trying to sell her to Searrs, her feelings disappeared, so she was unable to summon Duran until Shizuru became her new MIP.

Mai's last MIP, as I understood it, was Mikoto.
