My favorite character would be O’Hanlan, he is that true and bold hero of the weak (a small dream of mine). Irish Robin Hood with his crew of bandits also had a root in history which made the entire story even better. Another favorite character is Margret. 1. Jen is beautiful at this role. 2. She has so much emotion behind it. Which really drives it all home for me.
Characters with emotion are probably my favorite in any story or genre.
