    In the Renshai i didn't really like Colbey... he was too arrogant for me. I liked Rache though, the one who couldn't use his legs and still was the 2nd best swordsman in the world.

    Saltheart was good, but I liked Bannor a bit more in the first chronicles.
    Which I am rereading at the moment - I'd forgotten how painful Thomas Covenant could be to others.

    Oh Yeah - Add Traithe in the wars of light and shadow to my list, and even though it is sf, Duncan Idaho from Dune is my favourite character ever.
