They all deserve pity.
Things Rose had to go through are terrible. The same is about Izumi. Winry who lost both her parents when she was a child. Scar who lost not only his family but almost all his nation. Gracia and Elysia who buried their beloved husband and loving father. They all lost their relatives, close people. And this loss will always stay tragedy for all people.
Roy who was forced to kill innocent people has another kind of tragedy. To become a killer because of somebody's strength. To become a killer only because of someone's order. Not to have freedom to choose and act by heart.
Trisha's tragedy is tragedy of left woman, shattered family and hopes.
Wrath was revived only to tangle in questions such as "Why was I resurrect?", "What should I do?", "Who really cares for me?", "Who should I care for?"... It's his tragedy to be alchemic mistake that was happened because of despair.
I can't put Havoc next to all these characters. His "tragedy" of unluckiness with women just looks weird among them and even insulting. It's unserious.
I haven't mention one more character yet. Her tragedy shoked me the most. Nina. I couldn't speak for good 10 minutes after seeing her story. She was a child, innocent one, loving her father and wishing he'd be ok. And he used his own daughter. I never will forget smoldering picture with happy looking Nina's family drawn by her. I couldn't believe in what have happened. I even couldn't cry. I only shuddered, tears came later.

Out of these, I know I felt the most sorry for Anime!Wrath. I really like him as an innocent kid, and the episode where he realized what he had done to Sloth through Alchemy made me pity him very much. :'(

I pity anime Wrath the most. Especially with what happened in the Evil M. (My name for the FMA movie) But I think the saddest part was when Ed killed Sloth and Wrath was so sad and began to beat the crap out of Ed. Ohmygosh, Ed, did you have to kill Wrath's "mother?" I just can't believe Ed would hurt someone as badly as he hurt Wrath in that episode. I think Wrath deserves to be pitied.

For some reason, Wrath always got to my heart more than Nina did. Just the way he let his emotions out was so raw and heart-wrenching, compared to Nina's calmness and... almost delirium at the end, where she still wanted to protect her father despite what he did.
And I suppose there's also the fact that, when faced with "Their Creator" or an afterlife, Nina would surely be granted some sort of mercy and be shown to a "Heaven" of sorts. But to me, it seems that Wrath would have no such luck, being a Homunculus.

I have not watched the anime, therefore my knowledge on everyone is limited, but Nina really struck me. The Hughes were sad, of course, and especially because I adored Hughes as a character, but Nina was the one I cried over the most. That poor girl! How could her father do that to her?

What? Alphonse isn't up there? Doesn't he deserve some pity too? He never got to know his Dad, his Mom is dead, he's stuck in a suit of armor, with his only travel companion is his short-tempered brother, who in the end, ends up losing. (temporarily) But for the poll, I chose Wrath, because though he was kind of a brat, he was just so raw with his emotions (like Blysse said) and because he was so devoted to his "Mommy." and in CoS when he sacrificed his body so Al could get his brother back...

I put Nina, because you know, she got her doggy-head blown off... :-(
I agree with Rain though, I think Alphonse definitely has it harder than a lot of the others on that list (Scar comes close). Not only that, but he handles it all with such grace (for lack of a better word).

You know, after thinking about it, I did feel a lot of pity for Havoc when he became paralyzed. It was pretty sad to watch him and Roy talk in the hospital and how he was going to retire and Roy had to leave him behind.
As for the other characters, even though I feel sad or a lot of other things for them, I don't know if "pity" would be the right word.
