Favorite Human Character?
 
what the title says ;)

I would choose Moreta because she sacrificed her life (perhaps not intentionally)to save Pern. Plus, she is the roundest (NOT literally--that would be Jora) character in any Pern book I've read so far. Some come close, though :D

Robinton. No question about it, I love his character. It's very difficult not to love him (unless they're thinking of the young 'perfect' Robbie, but that never phased me too much). Even though he is somewhat of a busybody, he's just so endearing.

Others that come close in my opinion are Moreta, because she's a very realistic woman; Lessa because she's so interesting to read, even when she is being stubborn; and Jaxom, just because :tilt:

Moreta, without question. A nice well-rounded character who didn't get it all her own way.

I have a preferences for Harpers (cause my heart is more with them than the dragonriders or holders)...

So I opt for Robinton, Sebell and Piemur, those are my favourite characters!

Re: Favorite Human Character?
 
I really didn't like Moreta much. At the top end of my list of favs are Nerilka, Piemur, N'ton and Robinton

Anareth Mar 25 2005 04:04 PM

Re: Favorite Human Character?
 
Hm. Moreta, Capiam, Desdra (she so wears the pants in that couple)...oh, everyone in M:DLoP, really.

I liked Piemur better before his voice changed. He was a little rascal then but in RoP and WD and even DDrums he's too full of himself. Robinton, but not in MHoP. I liked pretty much every likable Weyrwoman excuding Lessa (who gets on my nerves) and Menolly. She would have made a good weyrsinger.

Re: Favorite Human Character?
 
Ok, here's the list. Menolly, Debera, F'lessan, Tai, Jaxom, T'lion Readis, Robinton, and pretty much everyone else. My least favorites (I think there's a topic for that but I'll post them here anyway) are Aramina and Nerilka. Nerilka is pretty boring and Aramina is just plain evil in Dolphins. ,

How is nerilka boring? She is one of my favourite characters as she is fully rounded, and DOESN'T want to be a dragonrider! She does not yearn for something that she can't have!!!

Larra Dragonrider May 16 2005 08:48 PM

Re: Favorite Human Character?
 
yeah, i can't see how she's boring

I would have to say Brekke or Menolly. I feel like I am more like Brekke and I admire Menolly for overcoming some of the obsticals that she did.

:lol: hmm, what was his name? That little boy who started the Dolphins hall...he was a cool little scamp I thought :sneak:

Re: Favorite Human Character?
 
Readis? I like him, although I don't like either Jayge or Aramina. Nerilka's good, though, and in spite of ending up married to a Lord Holder, her story's not all sweetness and light, and she doesn't get everything, unlike Jaxom who gets to be Lord and dragonrider, lead expeditions to the Red Star etc.

monkeysrule May 21 2005 05:56 AM

Re: Favorite Human Character?

Torene/Alaranth
Carenath/(Sean only sometimes)/his firelizards

Re: Favorite Human Character?
 
F'nor all the way. He is brave, handsome, honorable, happy-go-lucky, positive, and is not at all threated by or jealous of his brother. He is just happy with his place in life, except for that canth is a brown and if he had known KP's design from history he wouldn't have worried. In short nothing bothers this man :) Man if I where a green rider on in a mating flight before Breeke after all canth boasts there isn't a green he can't catch. :evil: :yum: :bouncy: :drool:

I reckon Lessa's cool. I can sorta relate to her as well. Especially with the whole 'Men if you don't like who I am then go screw ya selves' attitude in Dragonflight. Thats the one I use towards anyone of the opposite gender. You wanna wuv me ya gotta accept me!

McClance Sep 30 2005 07:56 PM

Re: Favorite Human Character?

T'lion
Readis II

Re: Favorite Human Character?
 
I liked so many!
-Lessa has to be up there, because while she seems difficult to get along with, she's strong-willed and intelligent. She helped me get the courage to grow a spine :D
-I love Moreta as well, so brave and well created.
-Menolly was neat, because she was close to my age at the time I read the Harpers Hall Trilogy.
-And Robinton of course, funloving, brilliant, and just incredible. I cried so much at his passing.

Jemmy's a favourite of mine too. I'm a fan of the minor characters
Sebell
Camo
I think Gemma would have been a good character.
Most of the other minor characters, which I am too tired to list now.

Re: Favorite Human Character?
 
For me is has to be:

Menolly, for her bravery, and the wonder she showed us in the harper hall.

Iantine, he is a great aritst on Pern, I loved his tail of and artist adventure on Pern.

Becky Mar 23 2006 12:36 AM

Re: Favorite Human Character?
 
Menolly and Robinton are my favorite Pern people. And almost every other character Anne and Todd have created. I love to hate the bad guys too, they're created so well! So I guess they are all my favorites! :)

Lady Maelin Mar 25 2006 02:30 AM

Re: Favorite Human Character?
 
Bad guys, that is something that Anne does great!!!:good:

Lady Holdless Thella, she made my skin crawl. She was so bad she was scary, I loved her.:fiend: :eek: :fiend:

The number one baddie though, has to be Avril Bitra, she was fantasticly hedious.I believe these two put ole nasty Fax to shame, with how evil they were. :eek::crazy::eek:

Myt Mar 25 2006 05:49 AM

Re: Favorite Human Character?
 
Toric is another baddie thatis done well
