Valentine Michael Smith (Stranger in a Strange Land, Robert Heinlein): This book, and in particular this character, shaped my philosophies and life when I read it in 7th grade in ways that still resonate with me today.

Pocket (Fool, Christopher Moore): An amazing and interesting character in an amazing and interesting book. Shakespeare's King Lear from the perspective of The Fool.

Hagbard Celine (The Illuminatus! Trilogy, Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson): Enigmatic, equally insane and brilliant, and another character that shaped much of what has come to be my life philosophy.

I'm sure there are others I just can't think of right now because I'm at work and my brain is fried.

Honorable Mentions (disqualified for not being fictional):
Carl Sagan: This is another individual that has shaped who I am via various media, both scientifically and philosophically.

Epicurus: An ancient Greek philosopher I discovered in 6th grade and have loved ever since. If any single classical philosophy comes close to how I try to live my life, it is his.

Check out my Codex: Scions of Slaanesh (Grey Knights complete rewrite)

And my Necromunda Escher gang project log (with lots of pictures)

In our embrace of the pleasures of the flesh we feel the embrace of the Dark Prince
She asks nothing of us but to enjoy life, and in doing so we bring glory to Him
Give up your petty faiths and morals and join us in the bosom of the Goddess of Pleasure
