Default favourite unusual character

the characters that aint meant to be lovable and likeable but are!

i was reading dragonsinger and i thought that Domick isnt as unpleasant character as Menolly thinks in the beginning. Hes cynical and sour, yes but hes not unkind and doesnt say very cruel things, theres something likable about him, and he gets nicer through the book!

Anyone else have one?

Petrion, Robinton's father.

He had trouble connecting with students, he never really connected with his own son, but he connected with Menolly.

I like Domick as well but, I also like Shonagar very well. He seemed rather mean to Menolly in DS but in DDrums, when Piemur lost his voice, he seemed so sweet. I kind of like the guy.

I think Petiron is a grouse character as well.

I reckon they should have let Robinton be under him at least for a while, as that may have had father and son connect, but they didn't, which is a shame. It would have done them both some good.
