Since when is Xenia Onatopp tragic? She was a cold-hearted bitch who literally got off on killing people.
I agree. I love Onatopp's character. But there's nothing tragic about her death. I actually remember laughing when I realized she was being crushed against the tree after the cable caught.
Dear God, I don't feel as sorry for Onatopp as I do for her many unfortunate, innocent victims and her death was one of the more amusing examples of being hoisted by one's petard, however I did sense something unhappy and dysfunctional about her when Bond socialises with her at the casino.
