While this may seem like an odd thing to have a WMG about, it's tied to Komato computer technology. Komato and Tasen computers use ternary (base-3) instead of our binary (base-2), and if I remember correctly, Iosa's kill counter overflowed and looped around to 0. 3[[superscript:8]] is 6,561, therefore it seems like a good estimate. Alternatively, their byte size may be 9 (multiple of 3, close to 8), 12 (3 x 4), or 27 (3[[superscript:3]]), which would put her kill count at 19,683, 531,441, or 7,625,597,484,987, respectively.

Added DiffLines:


This also suggests that the kill counter is unsigned, since signed variables have undefined behaviour when they overflow, and aren't guaranteed to loop. (Assuming Komato variable types work similarly to human ones, which they logically would considering how quickly humans managed to hack Tasen tech.)

[[WMG: Iji has prior training, perhaps in a militia]]
Despite her reluctance towards violence, she is a good marks-woman, having a smaller spread with the machine gun than all of the Tasen despite the fact that they should be better trained than her and better able to take the recoil. (Although it may be that they're just poorly trained or stupider than humans enough not to develop good techniques during long lasting wars.) She is able to credibly threaten Asha with a head shot with a shotgun while feeling comfortable that she won't hit Dan.

** Sure, because artificial gender-color relationships that have only even existed recently(seriously, pink used to be considered manly)have tons of significance in determining the sexual orientation of an alien creature.
* Gay or not, I have a hard time seeing Asha as camp. Maybe I just got killed by him on too many times... Wasn't his armor blue? RealMenWearPink, anyway.
** [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/asha.jpg Nope]]. Okay, it's more of magenta, but still. I asked this on the forum topic, in any case, and Remar stated that he didn't intend to hint at any relationships with him, gay or otherwise. Still, {{Fanon}}...
