Supposing all the Gundam series' were stereotypical family members, all meeting up for a family reunion. What would they be?

For example,

Zeta Gundam - This would be the most respected member of the family, possibly the old war veteran with lots of medals. All the others look up to and highly respect.

After War X - This would be typical druggie of the family, the one who's invitation was "lost in the post" but still managed to get in somehow.

This idea occured to me while I was at work, and was just wondering what you guys' and gals' take on it would be.

Turn A would be that eccentric cousin who knows and loves everyone in the family.

G Gundam would be the kid who everyone questions if his real father was the milkman? He definitely resembles the mother, but they don't really see much of the father in him, lol.

Ok I'll say it....Victory would be the youngest, most depressed, thinking of death of the family, the one that everyone wonders if today would be their last day.

00 would be the quiet, dutiful, responsible one who settles any fights by mediating.

Occasionally he glows red and runs around like a maniac.

Gundam(as in the original) would be Zeta Gundam's older brother, a Clint Eastwood-style grizzled old war vet who left the military an NCO(whereas Zeta retired an officer).
Gundam Seed would be the twelve-year-old who wants to be a soldier like Grandpa when he grows up, and Destiny would be his endlessly annoying kid brother.

ROFL.

00 would surely be DESTINY's fraternal twin, different in some respects but not nearly as different as they think they are, and certainly not in any really significant way. But the parents dote endlessly on 00, despite his shocking similarity to DESTINY, because 00 wears a different hat and parents are shallow like that.

His older sister SEED tries to comfort him, of course. But SEED met this guy, Koichi Tokita, and they have a whole family of ASTRAY children now, and she just can't be around anymore. The youngest one, VS ASTRAY, has some developmental issues, and you know how much work that takes. He's such a handful, screaming all night long, dragging dead characters out of the cabinets, making plot holes in the wall...it's all she can do to get a few hours' sleep sometimes.

So DESTINY drowns his parental issues in cheap booze, lamenting how he would have been loved too and all his flaws might have been forgiven, if not held up as strengths, if only he'd spewed more horseshit about the flux capacitors--because that, he realizes after years of depression, failed marriages, alcoholism, and expensive therapy, is all his parents ever really wanted.

Alternatively Wing and 00 are brothers who come from the side of the family that believes whoever shouts the loudest is the winner. Others are very careful not to get into arguments with the two around as they're likely to get kicked in the teeth as 00 and Wing's way of pre-emptive conflict resolution.

@SC: Pure win.

Hmm...

0083 would be that former hotshot veteran pilot (Gundam's nephew or cousin?) who, at the present, is all mopey due to memories of his craft being shot with [plot] holes and a past relationship with a woman that turned a bit...complex. He also hates carrots.

0080 would be that odd uncle complaining about how he was disillusioned over seemingly fascinating things throughout his early life and would warn today's youth about the grim realities of life. However, parents typically keep their kids away from him due to his occasional pedophilic tendencies...

Nah, Destiny is that one cousin that had a mental breakdown some point in his life during a family reunion so now everyone just shuns him.
