I really love June Iparis from the Legend series by Marie Lu. She's a perfectly flawed prodigy who thinks she knows everything but doesn't, and reading her book is like reading about myself, sort of.

character: Scott Pilgrim

series: Scott pilgrim

explanation/feats: He starts out as a complete loser, but through out the graphic novels he starts to become a better person. I also think he's really funny! Though all the characters in the series are real fun. He's just so lame and stupid but under all that he's real nice guy, that you can't help but root for him.

character: Kanola

Series: House of night series
Explanation/feats:Kalona is an evil fallen angel who was Nyx's (the goddess of the vampires) Warrior, but left hundreds of years ago because he grew jealous of Nyx's Consort, Erebus. Nyx officially banished him from the Otherworld. He is the father of all the Raven Mockers. He is thousands of years old, and can change his appearance to people's preferences, making people fall in love with him at the same time.

He loves A-ya, a woman created by ancient Cherokee women to love him and to trap him under the earth. He also believes Zoey Redbird is A-ya reborn (ironically A-ya is a Cherokee word meaning 'me'

Character: Roland Deschain

Series: The Dark Tower series

I have never read a series where I loved and loathed a protagonist as much as Roland. Equal parts sympathetic and despicable, I think he is one of the more realized and humanized protagonist in any genre of literature.

Character: Jay Gatsby ((Also known as, James Gatz.))

Series: The Great Gatsby

Explanation/feats: Jay Gatsby is my favorite character from a book because of how he loves Daisy so much that it's so unrealistically going to happen in real life that I love it((Does this even makes sense? Lol.)). Plus Gatsby is a fabulously wealthy young man living in a Gothic mansion in West Egg. He is famous for the lavish parties he throws every Saturday night, but no one knows where he comes from, what he does, or how he made his fortune. Mystery is always sexy. Lol, I'm gonna stop here. xD;;

It's so hard to choose a favorite character...

The first to come to mind is Hassan from "The Kite Runner"

Then, I remember the first character to steal my heart was Edmond Dantès from "The count of Monte Cristo"

And last but not least, I deeply adore Pi from "The life of Pi" and Petey from "Map of the harbor Islands"...come to think of it, I loved Hassan because he reminded me a lot of Petey.

I think guys like them are my type...they are strong-willed, selfless, kind hearted and very smart. Any of them could be your best friend and the gentleman every girl desires. <3

I've got a tie between two:

Character: Jake Barnes

Book: The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

and

Character: Dunstable "Dunstan" Ramsey

Book: Fifth Business by Robertson Davies

Explanation: My favorite aspect of written fiction is that you can say so much about a character by the way they narrate. Unlike most mediums, where I generally grow more attached to the more interesting supporting characters than protagonists, novels invite me to explore the narrator moreso than the other characters. The best thing about both of these narrators is that they're written in such a way that their outward 'surface' opinions are stated, but their actual motivations and thoughts are hidden. Implying opinions other than those stated from the narrator is a difficult feat, and when it's done well, as it has been in both these cases, the narrating character comes across as truly real.
