I have to agree with a lot of people so far and say Fitz. Being with him as he grew up and watching him change made it impossible not to love him.

Prefers to be anomalous
I notice no one has mentioned Miles, though there seems to be a lot of feeling for him in other posts. I'm curious now as to why.

Nice topic- it makes me want to reread some of these books

I enjoyed the books, but didn't really care for Miles until Memory when he sort of grew up an integrated all the different parts of his personality. Prior to that he was funny, and occasionally interesting - but I didn't really care about him. He never seemed like a real person. From that series my favorite characters would be Cordelia, Aral, the young emperor (whose name I am blanking on now) and Bel Thorne.
