    My favorite fictional character right now is Clete Purcel, the sidekick in the Dave Robicheaux novels by James Lee Burke. He is utterly brutal, honorable, loyal to a fault, creative in his revenge and has a good sense of humor. If you havnt read any James Lee Burke, I highly recommend him. Who are some of your favorite fictional character? Movies, TV or books.

    Pino from Ergo Proxy.

    I've wanted my own little cyborg ever since.


    Also, Pretty much any of the characters played by Dennis Leary.
    He really only plays one character, just in different situations.

    gads....I've read so much in my life, that it would be hard to say who my favorite character is....there are the Musketeers, the Count of Monte Cristo (the books, not the movies!), Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn.....which to choose?

    I guess it would have to be Robinson Crusoe, (the real full length book, both of them). He did so much, with so little, and made it work....He had strength, character and honor, all the the traits a man should have.
