Locke Lamora from The Gentleman Bastard series, always been a sucker for the gentleman thief.

Praxidike Meng from the second novel in The Expanse series is also fun. I'm just a fan of the more strategic characters in novels.

A couple would be

Raskolniknov-- Crime and Punishment.

Andrew Wiggin-- Speaker for the Dead (and Xenocide and others I haven't read.... Ender's Game was good too)

Of all time? Probably Charlotte the spider. First character in a novel I ever loved, and she's stuck with me my entire life.

Much more recently, I was impressed by Nell Crane, the protaganist from Sarah Griffin's Spare and Found Parts, speculative fiction/YA. She's a fully-realized, multilayered character that could walk right off the page at any time. Good book, too.

Other favorites:

Lauren Olamina - Parable of the Sower, Octavia Butler
Croaker - The Black Company novels by Glen Cook
Lady Jessica - Dune, Frank Herbert
Molly Millions - Neuromancer among others, William Gibson
Offred - The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood
Sherlock Holmes, Doyle
Tyrion Lannister, A Song of Ice and Fire series, George R.R. Martin

Jim Holden from the Expanse series - a member of the Glass Council if I ever saw one.

Ziani Vaatzes - a bit contrived, but the absolute epitome of why you don't fuck with an engineer (oh, was that your population? Bad luck)
