Only five votes? Oh well, even with the forum outage, I think it's safe to end this one, the outcome is obvious...
Ma Dincht - 4
General Caraway - 1
The next battle...
Cid Kramer (Headmaster of Balamb Garden. You first meet in very early in the game when he gives the briefing on the exam. A lot of the time, he seems to come across as a bit of a doddering old fool. You eventually learn that he founded Garden with his wife, Edea, but his dream started to get lost when he turned to NORG for funding. He ends up putting Squall in command of Garden and, from Disc 3 onwards, spends his time in the orphanage by the sea.)
Dr. Odine (Genius scientist that resides in Esthar. Famous for research into the area of magic. He studied Ellone's power and created the prototype for the "Junction Machine Ellone." The party visits Esthar in Disc 3 to seek him out in the hope of removing Edea's sorceress powers, only to learn that they've already been transferred to someone else-- Rinoa. In the English language version, he speaks with a weird, German-like accent.)

Hmm... good battle.
Okay... Dr. Odine.
Thanks Neg for the banner!!
Much better turnout this time, thanks everyone. Let's see where we ended up...
Cid Kramer - 4
Dr. Odine - 5
Very close, but Dr. Odine wins by one vote. Next battle is...
Dr. Kadowaki (The very first character you meet in the game-- she asks Squall how he's feeling following the fight with Seifer. She takes care of patients at Balamb Garden's infirmary. Kadowaki seems to be a reasonably caring doctor who is good at her job and also very dedicated. During the Garden conflict, she refuses to take any sides and refers to the "faction mumbo jumbo" as "ridiculous." When Squall warns her that there are missiles coming, she says that she definitely has to say. Kadowaki is a Triple Triad player and though she indicates that she hasn't played much recently, she carries some decent cards, though nothing rare. At one time, however, she was CC King.)
Moombas (Moomba is actually one of the "final forms" that can be taken by a Shumi. Many of them work in prisons, often treated poorly. Exactly how they ended up there, though, is unknown. The Shumi actually hold them in great respect, noting their many noble features. At a prison, Laguna took pity on one and freed it. He also found it upsetting that they didn't have the power of speech. Moombas identify people by their blood, hence they confused Squall with Laguna.)
Dr. Kadowaki - 1
Moombas - 5
Interesting. I thought Dr. Kadowaki was more well-liked than that, or perhaps it's just that people are particularly fond of moombas. Okay, next up...
Nida (He passed the SeeD exam with Squall, but when Squall encounters him later during the inter-Garden conflict, he doesn't remember who he is. Later on he becomes the pilot of Balamb Garden. He's fairly decent at Triple Triad, though not a member of the CC group.)
Mayor Dobe/Flo (Mayor Dobe of Fisherman's Horizon and his wife Flo. Both are ardent pacifists and resent SeeD's presence in FH, but Squall ends up having to save Mayor Dobe anyway when he tries to have a reasoned discussion with the Galbadians. Dobe used to be a scientist in energy research before coming to Fisherman's Horizon. Flo carries Irvine's card once you lose Sacred to the Queen of Cards.)
