Favourite: Polgara the Sorceress.  Probably.  I'm reading Septimus Heap at the moment, and I absolutely love Marcia Overstrand...

Hated: I don't really hate many characters.  It takes a very clever author to cause a character to get under my skin to such an extent.  I'll say Molly Weasley; horrible women, and very subtly...

Eclipse, I see this latest bit of necromancy as a direct challenge.  If only I had some supernatural powers to confront your dark magic with....

I feel a little guilty confessing that the only characters that instantly spring to mind are those I detest.

Caul Shivers, especially in 'Best Served Cold'. I thought Abercrombie ended up letting him off far too lightly in the later books.

Marith from 'The Court of Broken Knives'. I liked pretty much everything about that book, but the guy is pure evil of the worst kind with absolutely no redeeming qualities and somehow we're supposed to root for him.

Micah from the YA 'Wormweald' books. He wanders around like a lovesick puppy obsessing over his love interest when I just want to read about dragons and scavengers attacking each other. Then he stumbles across her when she's traumatised and barely aware of what she's doing and thinks it's a good time to get laid. What a creep.

And of course almost every character in the 'Inheritance Cycle'.

As for my favourite, I like Jorg Ancrath. I liked Tyrion in the first few 'Song of Ice and Fire' books. There's probably a fair few others I'm forgetting.

I guess I just like to rant.
