WEll, i really wnated to vote for Ed, because of all he's gone through. I mean, loosing his mom and then nearly loosing his brother, being around all of these deaths that almost always relate directly to him, [spoiler] and he died, too... although he came back.[/spoiler]
I voted Wrath for this, though... poor kid got abandoned and then was abuseed by a buch of people, saw the woman he viewed as his mother died, got abused again, lost his arm and leg, [spoiler] and then got chewed up by gluttony! >_< [/spoiler] Manga!Wrath i don't see as so tragic, though.

I voted for Hughes' family.. Losing such a loving man in the family to me is the saddest thing ever (I LOVE MY DAD even if he hunts me for my academic results all the time).. Glacier and Elycia were really pitiful in the series, let alone if they were to die in the movie I would break down for nights.. I always have the thought (while watching FMA) of seeing Glacier crying every night and Elycia just comes up to her to see if she's OK, and yet the thought of Hughes leaving the family to somewhere had been engraved in her mind.. Basically, she doesn't know that her father had left her forever.. On the other hand, Glacier was the person crying on her behalf.. I almost voted for Nina.. Considering that she died in the end, I suppose she didn't have to carry as much pain as Glacier. She did carry her pain when her loving father transmutated her as a Chimera, but death had actually allowed her heart to rest.. I guess.. I agree with Nil-chan that Ed's pitiful too.. After all that he beared in the story..

Oh geez. This was a REALLY hard question. I found all of the people in the poll, pitiable in their own way. They were all intense sob stories. I mean, if I were in their position it would be hard to recover. In the end I voted for the Hughes family. Yes. Ed and Al would totally sweep the polls if they were up there, . I mean, they went through so much , and in the end, it did pay off, just not the way they wanted it to.... WAH! The movie was so depressing!
Imagine being Glacier-Gracia which ever you prefer- she's kind of one of the reasons why Hughes died. Don't you think? It's not like it's her fault, but if Envy didn't choose to turn into her -which he chose her for the sole purpose that Glacier is Glacier, do you get that?- Hughes would have lived. Ahh. Once again, depression sweep... Hughes was totally comic relief, why did he go and die?
Yeah, but at the funeral there was a totally Royai moment...
Oh my gosh, whatever I do or say, it always leads back to royAi....
I vote Nina. She had not choice in what Tucker did to her, and not to mention that Tucker's her father, the person she loved the most. Despite his betrayal, she still protected him from Ed's wrath. And she was such an adorable kid! (the sub version, not the dub...the dubbed voice was annoying...)

i voted for izumi , because after thinking and thinking about the subject ( for some reason it became very hard to choose) i think that no mother should lost her kid ...it's so sad ...despite i'm being very close to chose nina or hughes family , i declined , first because nina after all [spoiler]died its was sad but means that she found peace in the end[/spoiler] and hughes family , well gracia lost a husband and elycia a father ( another thing that nobody should pass through but they have each other and family and friends ... now izumi..well kids arent supposed to die before their parents .. its so sad ... i think i pity her most
this sig is Nil-chan awesome work !!! thanks so much for let me use it !!!!

I picked Scar because of what had happened to him and his brother in the past, and the pain he felt at himself for taking revenge, and then the final episode when admits he was wrong. But you're forgetting a lot of people on that list. Tucker, though I wouldn't have voted for him, is piteable because after doing what he did to Nina, he spends the rest of the series trying to fix it. Also, Hohenheim should have been on that list. In my eyes, he's easily the most piteable character in this series, with all his family taken away from him, either by death or by hate. The worst is that he accepts that this is his punishment and knows he deserves it.
Also I'm not sure why Havoc's on the list, unless you feel sorry for him and his bad luck with the ladies.

I think Izumi because she had to go through the loss of her son, sacrificed greatly to revive him only to have him turn into one of the baddies (I think) Plus seeing her pupils having made the same she had.
