Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. This week's prompt is....
What is your favorite character archetype(s)?
I spent waaaaaay too much time looking into archetypes for this post. There's plenty I enjoy, but one surprised me in it's frequency and realizing some of my favorite characters ever fit it.
Here's a few in general I really enjoy:
- Han Solo
- Bowen In Dragonheart
- Eddie Valiant in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
- Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and Tyrion Lannister in A Song of Fire and Ice series.
Sam Vines, Granny Weatherwax, and Death in Terry Pratchett's Discworld are three I didn't immediately peg as Knights in Sour Armour though that seems really silly in hindsight. Click to pictures to find out more but beware spoilers if you have read Pratchett's amazing work.

My second favorite character ever: Fitz Farseer in Robbin Hobb's Elderling Realm series.
|The book that starts it all...|
