    Strider sitting in the dark corner of the prancing pony the version I had in my head when I first read it not the way he was depicted in the movie

    The Death Character in Terry Prattchets discworld books
    and pretty much every other character that Terry wrote about too

    Mat Cauthon and Lan from WoT
    Silk and Belgarath fromthe Belgariad
    Zedd from SoT, the only cool character in the series. Probably because he's so remarkably similar to Belgarath
    The hysterical Bartimaeus from his own trilogy, and Nathaniel too
    And Gimli! from, well if you can't figure it out then just leave this site.

    Who's Gimli?....Nah joke

    Gimli, Son of Gloin one of the original fellowship of nine to leave Rivendell with the ring-bearer (You all know all this I'm sure but after I said Gimli who? I had to prove I was joking) For those who haven't read it Gloin was one of the dwarves in The Hobbit.

    Fiddler, Paran, Kalam, Mappo Icarium: MBotF
