The only reason Izumi Curtis didn’t die in Briggs is because she was determined not to die a virgin and basically said no to death, and honestly that’s the most iconic thing any character has done ever
In the beginning of this year in the mountain area neighboring Drachma, cases of soldiers being attacked by a woman repeatedly occurred.

“I can hardly move… How could I be so arrogant to think I could conquer nature? I’m a ready-made meal for the wolves, at this point. What a meager life I’ve lived. If I had known I was gonna die… I would have given up on this insanity and gone home. I don’t even have the strength to get off this mountain, now. Eighteen years… such a short lifetime…”
“NO! I CAN’T DIE! I’M STILL A VIRGIN! Death can wait until I experience passion! That’s FIRST!”
