    Favorite Fictional Characters

    I think that your favorite fictional characters say a lot about you. I'm curious to see what you say, and how they might or might not relate to you. I'll give some example and share why I think they've become almost like icons to me, shorthand for various aspects of my innermost self.

    (Btw, these characters can be from anything, TV, Movies, Books, or what not)

    Raistlin Majere
    From the fantasy series, Dragonlance. Raistlin is a complicated character, I'll tell you that. He's very intelligent, but caustic and frequently uncaring, except for those he feels are genuinely disadvantaged. It's then that some of his undeveloped compassion comes out. He's physically weak but makes up for it through cunning and strategy. He's highly ambitious, and sometimes doesn't know his limits. His pride rules him, and he makes colossal mistakes because he might miss a small detail due to that hubris.

    There's a lot of me in there--hate to say many of the darker and not-so-nice sides to my personality, but I think what I identify with the most is the sense of being an outsider, and using my smarts to impress or ingratiate myself to others.

    From the Star Trek : The Next Generation TV series. Data is truly a sophmore--the wise fool. Brilliant and precise on the factual information, a clueless neophyte on emotions, shared human experience, and deception. But he's always open-minded, looking for and seeking out new experiences for their own sake, and improving on his basic programming.

    I feel like this all the time--I want to be more than my body, my gender, my current understanding or awareness, so I'm always trying to improve myself. I also feel a little like the clueless dope who's moving through society and missing out on the punchline of the jokes, or failing to understand another person's perspective, because I'm so into my head most of the time. He tends to analyze everything and break it down into parts to better understand it--that's me, too.

    So, those are two examples. How about you?

    All right here are some of my favourites, I like:

    - Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes for of obvious reasons

    - Death from the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett for his fascination for humanity...oh, and he likes cats.

    - Indiana Jones for the ultimate adventurer he is.

    - Han Solo for pretty much the same reason plus he's flying the Millenium Falcon.

    - Crowley from Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett for no particular reason.

    - Anton Gorodetzki from Sergey Lukianenko's Watch books (I don't know the English titles, sorry), for his way of strugglig with Light and Darkness...and his taste in music.

    I think it goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway.

    Raistlin also condemned himself to suffer an eternity of daily disembowelment when he saw that his plans for the world would leave it a grey lifeless lump, his stars the only constellation left in the sky. I think it also spoke volumes about his character that he had a soft spot for the weak and innocent. Tasslehoff and a certainly Gully Dwarf come to mind, Bopu, Bupu? I cannot recall. One of my favorite Rasitlin moments was the use of flash powder to befuddle Fistandantalus.

    Here are some (others) of mine in no certain order:

    Aslan the Lion
    Darth Vader (not in the Anakin days...)
    Optimus Prime
    Repairman Jack
    Samuel Vimes
    Havelock Vetinari
    Rand al'Thor
    Lan Mandragron
    Richard Rahl
    And... no... that's all I got for now.
