A lightning scar, a fallen star, knights around a table. A princess bride, prejudice and pride, someone from a fable. Bearers of rings, killers of kings, tributes playing games. Brooding on moors, shrinking for doors, we always remember their names.
As many books as there are in the world, there are many, many more characters that inhabit them. While a plot is what keeps us turning the pages, characters are what make it worth it and they’re often what stay in our minds long after we’ve closed the book.
So, who are your favourite characters? What makes them stick in your head? Did you like them from the outset or did they earn it as you went along? As a rule, do you like protagonists, secondary characters or antagonists the best? Whatever character related thoughts you’d like to share, this is the place!
