The character(s) I felt most sorry for were probably Nina and Scar.
In Nina's case, she had the one person she trusted most betray her and turn her into a monster. She was so vulnerable, and it's sad to see such thing happen to so innocent a child.
Scar's tale was also a terrible one too. In a couple of days, he had his entire culture, race, and family obliterated. To watch your brother , those closest you, and your entire way of life mocked and butchered is enough to drive anyone mad. I'm surprised that he still has some vestige of sanity left in him.
Joint second place for my pity went to Rose and Hughes. Hughes was a good man, and his family and friends have each other to cling through their hardships, so I don't pity them AS much. Likewise, Rose still has her child, which is at least something to hold onto in life.

I chose Scar not because of what happened to him. I chose Scar because of what he does. I pity his method of making things better. One life is worth another life, but not as many lives as he's taken for his brother. Even Ed refuses to kill, and we all know how bad he wants to help his brother. Scar just irks me, and I only pity his actions, and his victims.
But, other than him, I have great amounts of pity for certain other characters, especially Ed, Al, Roy, and many others.

For me, it's Izumi.. I just feel so bad for her. She lost her kid, was desperate enough to perform human transmutation and paid the price for it.. Now she has an ungrateful, unloving homunculus son where she could have had her perfect human son (which leads me on a tangent to anime!Envy but since he's not in the list I won't say anything).
In my opinion, nothing hurts more than knowing someone you love doesn't love you back. (Got lots of experience with that too). Things like that, especially with family, it's really painful. And to know you sacrificed so much, only to have that, now that's really awful. But still, she loves Wrath, no matter how horrible he is to her. She loves him in the way a parent loves a child, which has to be one of the strongest kinds of love.
I'm getting sappy again... But in a way I'm glad that Envy wasn't in the list because I'd be ranting and this post would be about a foot long... hehe.

Denny Bloch was kind of a pitiful character too. Watching the one he loves flirt with someone else had to sting. It was a funny kind of pitiful though. It was like "Awwwww, poor guy" yet you had to laugh at the same time.
Roy had a very tragic story. Being a soldier, he had no choice when it came to the execution of the Rockbells and the mass genocide of Ishbal. Then his best friend gets killed trying to get important information to him. Then he nearly dies at the end of the series.

...Hard Choice... I feel sorry for Izumi,since she lost her child and had a bad problem with her,meaing she has missing organs. Nina,And Alexander (can't forget the dog) I really miss them since they were innocent and well,you know what Tucker did. The one I choose is Trisha.Everytime I rewatch FMA, and watch the flasbacks of her,I feel sorry for her since she waited for her hasband til her death.Plus,she had Ed and Al to take care of and pretend everything was fine.

I'm giving my vote to Rose. You could tell that Ed felt guilty for what happened to her. And she had to sit by and watch as [spoiler]Ed got killed by Envy[/spoiler]. After everything she's been through, I wish Ed would just bite the bullet and marry her already.
