For the matter of the soldiers being so young, it could be that all the "adults" are already on the battlefield and most of them have died off. Wasn't that a problem during WWI and WWII? All the "adult" men were drafted so women and children took their places in the workforce. Most of the people who weren't fighting during that time were children, women and the elderly. One could suppose that, in AC, they've lost most of the "adult" generation to fighting and have now turned to the children and elderly for the fighting force. Also puts a new perspective on MS. If your pilots aren't exactly in top physical form, you want to give them great weapons.

So, for the record- I just went back and reread the Chapter 1 translation and Quatre and Trowa are each referred to with the codenames Snow White/Professor W and The Warlock/Wizard/Dokter T respectively. Mobile suits, if any, haven't yet been mentioned after all.

(Though, Duo Jr's line here:

"Hey, you old fart," the boy called Duo butted in. "I couldn't give two hoots about that, tell me where my partner is."

Makes me think he's referring to a mobile suit. Can't say for sure yet though.)

I hope he is referring to a MS; I'm really interested to see what they look like.

Chapter 3 summary is out: http://corpus-yaoi.livejournal.com/28530.html

Yep, always suspected that guy was Heero's bio-dad.

Interesting, predictable and just awful all at the same time.


Spoiler for question:

I beg to differ. Let's take a look at that passage again.

Spoiler for to save space:

Kathy and Duo are both referring to Duo Jr. as a 'pilot'. Sure, it doesn't say MS pilot anywhere, but it suggests itself.
My guess would be that there are supposed to be two suits which will be piloted by Heero and Duo Jr., possibly built by Doktor T and Professor W. Although I could be wrong, of course. But wouldn't that be fun? With Heero's mission, it could be episode 2 all over again.

LOL at the summary of chapter 3. For some reason I had expected something more... noble for Heero's background.

By the way, I was just poking fun at the Special's ages. It isn't consistent with the (animated) series anyway. If Zechs and Noin had been pilots since they were ten, they wouldn't have been so surprised to discover their opponents were 'boys'. Personally, I've come to disregard ages in FT.

Right, that's what I was saying I was thinking the case is. Just that those codenames were referring to Trowa and Quatre, not the suits themselves, as previously thought.

EDIT: Er, and that they might not necessarily be Gundams. They could be normal MS for all we know (but they're probably not, I mean c'mon).

If they are getting new Mobile Suits, be them Gundams or not. I wonder if they are going to be similar to Deathscythe and Wing Gundam/ Wing Zero.

I am also curious to see if Duo Jr is going to be similar to his father in fighting style and outlook ( God of Death 2.0) or if he will come into his own. So far he does come off as a little abrasive, more similar to Wu Fei in that sense then his old man.

Any idea if Seis and Aoi are also Trant Clark's parents? If so, Trant may have been Heero's half-brother.

Already replied to this in corpus-yaoi's post but...

I can't see how that's possible. Trant was obviously far older than the Gundam pilots when shown, and he had to have been born after Heero (since Aoi was with Odin and then got together with Seis afterwards as I understand it? Unless it was an affair in the middle of her marriage, but...I dunno, there would be a mention of another kid if there was one, I'd think.), so he couldn't be a younger half-brother.

I think it's highly likely he was related to Seis (brother or nephew or somesuch maybe), but I'm doubting he's related to Heero by blood.

Excerpt from chapter 2, part 1.

Seis youngest brother Trant had [a] unique attachment, a tenacity, for the "ZERO" system on board the Wing 0 gundam in AC 195.
So yeah, if anything he's Heero's step uncle. Which surprises me since I never thought the Clark family to be important. Weridge? Yes. Clark? No.

Ah, missed that. Thanks for the clarification.

Yeah.. well, that's the thing. It seems like Sumisawa's going out of his way to connect EVERYONE to EVERYTHING. Next thing you know a random background character like one of Relena's maids is gonna be someone's mom. /eyeroll

The impression I got from this line: Sooomeone's been messin' with Heero's head... (He's always been brusque and unsociable but he's NOT cold and emotionless. Not the Heero we know, anyway.)

Quote:
...would seem to imply that AC ended pretty damn quick after the original run of GW. Also: AC is definitely after the Common Era and we were almost 200 years into AC history at the start of GW. At the start of Frozen Teardrop, we're in MC-022.
So... 20-30 years? Hmm.

Part 2 was decent.

Quote:
Take action as you deem appropriate.
For future soldiers.
I'm pretty sure that second line translates to what Walker's principle he got from Zechs(who, apparently got it Treize): Fight for the soldiers of tomorrow

The history of the Peacemillion was pretty cool.

Any word yet on the Winner Family?
I have a feeling Qautre is going to be related to someone in Romefeller or the sort through his mom. Due to the fact she died giving birth to him she wasn't featured in any works and only mentioned thus far, it would make sense for her to be the link that connects Qautre to any of the other characters. I would have assumed that Mrs. Winner would be some how connected to the first Heero but that might be a stretch.

Maybe a connection to the Barton family, I mean Qautre's father new about Operation Meteor to an extent and forbade him to leave, so that might be a potential link.
I realize I am just grasping at straws here but since we are getting more info on Treize and Heero's it seems like everyone else is somehow getting connected to it one way or another.

Lol, if Quatre and Dorothy are related, I will freak out. xD I love me some crack!ship. Then again, with Dorothy wanting to marry Treize and whatnot plus all this weird incest with Angelina, I wouldn't put it past Sumisawa. Also, it would be an interesting kink...

In addition to what Elo said, there's been a vast amount of backstory information being given (which makes up the bulk of the chapters so far) including:

Spoiler for for FT backstory content:

...I think I got most of the important stuff? x.x

EDIT: man what is it with me and these pagegets XD
