    I have to say Anakin Solo. Best character in all of the EU. Still hoping they bring him back.

    From the novels I like, Jacen Solo, Anakin Solo, Ganner Rhysode, Vergere, Boba Fett and Bossk(only really got characterization in the EU), Tenel Ka,
    Darth Zannah, and Scout.

    Anakin Solo:
    He had great character depth and he actually reminded me a little of myself in the JJK books. He had the Solo heart, Organa mind, and the Skywalker skills.

    And Tahiri beging taken from her love at such a young age after Chewie died for him was just horrible.

    What!? No love for Jolee Bindo? Oh, I get it. Let's play with the old man's head, is it? He's half-senile, he'll forget I said anything! Wait uh, what was this about, anyway?

    YES. Villie and Vos both should've been in the movies, in my opinion. Fantastic characters.

    In Tales of the Jedi, I liked Ulic's tragedy and redemption. I thought it was handled quite well. On the other hand, I thought Exar Kun was pretty much always a...poopyhead...and his fall was too predictable. And then he never really did anything for the war.

    Zayne Carrick, Revan, and Haazen were all great KOTOR characters. Zayne especially though. He's sympathetic, and I can empathize with him, better than any other Jedi.

    I like Aurra Sing, personally, too. She was a neat character throughout Republic.

    @Orman Tagge: Great to see someone paying homage to Orman Tagge! I think he should be brought up more in debates.

    Haha, he's a great character in my opinion and should get a bit more recognition. Cool concept, albeit with a very dated execution. I was surprised he wasn't mentioned more when I joined the forum.

    I also loved Valance from the Marvel run.

    @Orman Tagge: Many characters created by Archie Goodwin were great! The Tagge family, Valance the Hunter, Admiral Griff, Skorr...
    When the "Battle of the Cyborgs" thread was created, I was the one who proposed to include Valance.

    You most certainly seem to be a SW comic fan. Most of the characters you mention in your signature are great.

    Yeah, I dunno, I feel like comics are the best way (besides films) to convey the whole Star Wars...feel.

    May I ask whom you don't like in my sig? :p

    @Orman Tagge: I like the pre-TCW Darth Maul. Never liked him returning after he was "killed off" in TPM.
    I like all the characters in your signature, although not necessarily in that order... ;)

    I sort of have a guilty pleasure thing with Maul's return. It's definitely out of place and a little dumb, but by god I enjoyed those lightsaber fights.

    I just started reading Classic Star Wars, and I have to add Skorr to my list! Great bounty hunter character.

    Thrawn is my favorite EU character. My exposure to him was from reading the Thrawn Trilogy when it first came out. Additionally in the computer game Tie Fighter, Thrawn played a big part. His cold calculating and calm demeanor was what I enjoyed and liked most of all.

    @Orman Tagge: Finally, you got to know who Han Solo was refering to TESB.
    Did you already read the Classic Star Wars volume in which Lord Blackhole appears? I think you will like him too.

    I have not! I'm only through volume 2 of the TPBs. Is Blackhole the same as Cronal? He always struck me as a very odd character.

    Yes, Cronal is also known as "Blackhole" or "Shadowspawn".
    You will encounter him later on in the Classic Star Wars series.
    Let me know when you get there! Have fun reading the series.

    By the way, Admiral Griff is one of my favourite characters as well.

    Yeah he was interesting. The whole Executor-construction arc was pretty cool. In fact, across the board I've been impressed at how relevant the Classic Star Wars series has managed to remain: it tells important stories like Ackbar's introduction, Hoth's discovery, etc. that all actually enhance the movie. Very impressive.

    Have to agree with @dragonsith13 that Thrawn is probably my fave EU character. I also quite like Mara Jade. Starkiller, improbable a character as he is, is also a fave.
