A man after my own tonsils. Were I that way inclined I'd plant a big wet one on you!
Athur Penhaligon from the Keys to the Kingdom books. Or Eragon. Because they both overcome their disadvantages and become hereos.
Luthiel from the Luthiel's Song series for her plucky nature, her loyalty to friends, and some damn cool dark magic. :balrog:
I think that my favorite has to be Uhtred from Bernard Cornwell's Saxson tales, Derfel Cadarn out of the Warlord series was very good too.
My Favorite fantasy Character from a book has to be Kahlan from the legend of the seeker series...."Wizard's first rule" and "Stone of Tears" etc. i made this choice because i think the character is well described and very in detail throughout the book...even more so than richard because to describe some of what he is feeling you the author had to describe Kahlan's full emotions and other such attributes, i also think the character is made to hacve a witty sense of humour and very sharp intellect making the character even more interesting to imagine!
Feanor from Silmarillion
Sturm Brightblade from Dragonlance. He's very black and white but I believe embodies what a man should be. When I think of him all that manly pride and thoughts of heroicness/honour and what have you swell up.
There are a few other characters that are in contention though, Sturm isn't a definite, but a good favourite.
I still have dreams about that. *sigh*
I agree about Vin, but I would almost say Elend from Mistborn gets my vote...
After having read the first book from the Mistborn trilogy, I find myself rather inclined to agree.
Also, beyond the Discworld characters I posted earlier, I also admire Melisande from the Kushiel books, if in a twisted way.
Wasn't the point of A Feast for Crows that she was not actually that cunning? That's the impression i got atleast.
Well I have to go with Piscine Molitor Patel (Pi) from "Life of Pi" by Yann Martel. Surviving 227 days in a lifeboat togheter with a tiger in the middle of the Pacific Ocean deserves some Kodos.
For his devotion, his honour, his strength.
John Daker, if only because he is the only incarnation who truly knows what he is. Tragic heroes have always appealed to me. (And my admiration goes out to anyone who reads that name and knows who and what it refers to without resorting to search engines.)^^
