Wilford Brimley. He's an inspiration to us all...

I'm surprised you had Gatsby as you're runner up. I guess he doesn't appeal to me, because we're forced to read the book in school .

If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

It was also required reading at my high school and at the time I did not think too much of it. I have no idea when, but sometime after I reread it and just was enraptured by the character. It makes me want to go back and reread some books I read years ago so that I can gain new perspective.

Scorpius (Farscape by Brian Henson and Rockne S. O'Bannon) - Scorpius is the ultimate villain, at least for me. He has all the traits of a successful villain, he doesn't care who he has to hurt, he's willing to risk everything, he's a genius, he wears an awesome outfit, his only true loyalty is to himself, and he isn't afraid to get violent himself if he has too. And he avoids the crippling weaknesses of other villains by never underestimating his enemies, knowing when to fall back and try again, and he is willing to aid his enemies if it suits him. Plus his voice is sophisticated. Truly a villain for the ages.

Spike (Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel by Josh Whedon) - Spike is one of the funniest, toughest and most badass characters on TV and comics. Always ready with a sarcastic quip and a fatalistic fact about the situation, Spike is definitely one of my favourites. I especially love his two entrances to Sunnydale, running over the welcome sign in his car and getting out flawlessly the first time, and falling out drunk the second time. Wish he had joined the crew earlier in Angel, he would have gotten so many good episodes out of it.

Tyrion Lannister (A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R Martin) - One of my favourite book characters. Tyrion is constantly berated, underestimated and scorned by every character that crosses his path because he is a dwarf. Yet he is one of the smartest and undoubtedly the most noble of his family. He isn't afraid to stand up and discipline his sadist nephew, nor to make a joke to his father who despises him. He's got some cruelty in him but only those who deserve it end up receiving it, not once has he given a cruelty that I considered excessive. Can't wait for A Dance with Dragons, so we can see how Tyrion is fairing across the narrow sea.

Three of my favourite characters.

Lord of the Night

I'll bump the Paul Maud'dib.
My favorite quote from all literature is a line of his from Dune: Messiah.

"To endure oneself is perhaps the hardest task in the universe."

Which is my sig as well! =)
