Why don't more people love Sayid, who is the cool Iraqi soldier that is used to torturing other people for their secrets? He was in the Republican Guard during the Gulf War, and tortured people for information, that would prove vital to his own leaders and government.
Sayid tried to broadcast a distress signal so he and the other survivor's could be rescued, but he was not successful. He always tries to find out more about the island. Another example would be him deciphering maps he found at the French woman's place. He knows there are secrets to be found out about the island, and he wants to do what he can to figure them out and find a way off the, as Shannon called it, "craphole" island.
Sayid tortured Sawyer for information on where the inhaler was for Shannon's asthma. But Sawyer eventually said he didn't have it.
Sayid has always loved Nadia, a woman he grew up with and used to play with as a child. But when she was brought in for interrogation, Sayid could simply not do it, and instead of torturing her he would bring her food and show her care. Sayid was told to kill Nadia for not providing any valuable information to the Iraqis, but instead he let her escape. However, Sayid now believes her dead.
Sayid was taken prisoner by the French woman, Rousseau, who told him about the fact she killed all the other people she came on the island with 16 years ago. She mentioned something about them catching a disease from "the others". Sayid brought this information and her maps back with him to the other survivors.
Sayid started having a relationship with Shannon, and the two became inseperable. They would do everything together and as Sayid said to Boone, "It is very possible that me and your sister will become more than friends." Then we saw Sayid and Shannon kiss for the first time.
Sayid is one of the coolest characters, and should be loved by more people. He has a soldier's past, and he is brilliant with devices and mostly anything. I am excited to find out more about him.
