Which character do you identify with the most?

Ya know how sometimes you’re reading a book or watching a movie and you’re like hey, that character is just like me! Maybe you’re not alike in every single way, but something about them just draws you to them. It’s a character that you immediately love because you identify with them.

For me, it has to be Rory from Gilmore Girls. I loved that show growing up. Rory is still one of my favourite characters. I just love how she was always so driven and focused on her goals and yet was still a normal girl with normal relationships.

What character do you love and identify with the most?

    Vin from Mistborn, definitely. Probably the only book where I cared about the characters (call me heartless all you like, it’s true!).

    • I’ve been watching some lectures from Mistborn’s author, Brandon Sanderson. I read one of his Way of Kings books, but it wasn’t quite for me. Was Mistborn really good? What did you like about it the most?

        The way that Vin was portrayed. The fact that she was neither a girly girl or a complete tomboy, but rather a rather greatly-written mix of both. Also, KELSIER!

    Daria, I’ve always felt I could relate with her character: opinionated, sarcastic, head-strong. And she was intelligent, cleaver, and contained about the same amount of vanity as me…or at least I considered that to be so. It’s nice to have these relate able characters & have them act-out scenarios that allow us to watch them & consider how we ourselves handle life situations. It’s what keeps us watching.

    Korra from “Legend of Korra.” In “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” I always identified as a mix between Katara and Toph, and then this series comes along and Korra does it justice in encompassing both character traits in her personality.

    Seriously, after thinking about this for a bit, the obvious answer was Willett, that’s Marinus Bicknell Willett, the sharp-witted little doctor who saves the universe from cosmic horror and madness in H. P. Lovecraft’s “The Case of Charles Dexter Ward.” “As he had foreseen, there would be no need for acids…”

    Hummm…what a wonderful, thought-provoking post. I just spent the last minutes doing a lovely mental review of the various books and movies others mentioned, and then thinking of my own list of favorites. I would like to think I’m like Elizabeth in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice–she’s just the right amount of spit and vinegar, makes mistakes and has doubts, but ends strong. I’d like to think I could do that too.
