    So many... Kyle Katarn, Mara, HK-47, Janson, Scorch, Revan, and M1-4X probably top my list, with favorite going to Katarn. And Waru of course. Can't forget Waru!

    I'd say Rahm Kota from the Force Unleashed games is one of my favorites, his way of thinking really sets him apart from the other Jedi in the fact he wanted the Old Order to take a more pro-active role in galactic affairs to prevent catastrophes from happening and the fact he was one of the few Jedi who actually had a military background from before the Clone Wars given the fact he grew up on a war torn planet where he fought every day since he was a child.

    Its just a shame more material hasn't been made to cover his time during the Clone Wars and his backstory, which will never be expanded upon now that Disney has scrapped the whole EU.

    Revan, Kreia, Vergere, HK-47, Freedon Nadd, Cronal, Arkadia Calimondra... I have a soft spot for Sith Lords/darksiders who aren't cardboard caricatures attempting to conquer the galaxy with their mega evulz.

    In no particular order: Kyle Katarn, Mara Jade, Jacen Solo, Vergere, Xizor, Nom Anor, Tavion Axmis, Sariss, Borsk Fey'lya, Dev Sibwarra and Firwirrung. And although not entirely EU characters; 4-LOM, Zuckuss, Feltipern Trevagg and M'iiyoom Onith would get my mention too as they were all elaborated upon in short stories.

    I find that I like the people that others resent as Mary Sues. Corran Horn. Mara Jade. Quinlan Vos. And yes, Thrawn, especially in his original trilogy, he's still my favorite villain in the entire EU.

    Tenel Ka. She was my favorite of the YJK four, between her background and the fact that she was such a badass. I'd have really loved to see books focusing on her after she became queen of Hapes. How she dealt with the part of her heritage she liked least basically taking over her life - both in terms of how she copes/reacts to it on the inside, and whether she tries to clean up the Hapan court and inch it towards something more in line with her own Jedi values (which I can't imagine she wouldn't).

    Vua Rapuung, the dude who really made the Yuuzhan Vong a fully fleshed culture, without diminishing them as enemies. Anakin Solo, who had his glory days in that same duology.

    Lara Notsil/Kirney Slayne/wev and Myn Donos, easily the best couple of the EU. Allston tried pretty hard in the Wraith Squadron trilogy to make sure that "ragtag bunch of misfits" wasn't just a catchphrase and to show people with real, sometimes major problems working their way through them, but Myn and Kirney are easily the most extreme variation of that... and yet, they still came through to a happy ending. I like the fact that they got out of the business (mostly) and settled down, too.

    Anakin Solo -he was my favorite of the 'new Jedi' and I was very upset when he died. So much would have been different in the EU had Anakin's character been kept alive...

    Nom Anor
    Thrawn was brilliant

    more so I'm a bigger fan of Mark Thompson for being such a Great reader, I own all my novels in audio book as well and Mark Thompson is the best audible reader I've listen to!

    Jacen used to be my favorite character, but then he turned evil and died. I also really liked Pellaeon, and he's dead too. Mara Jade--also dead.

    Others on my list--Jaina Solo, Jagged Fel, Wedge Antilles, Corran Horan (and Mirax), and Tenel Ka.

    For top favorite, I'd have to say Jag. He's clever enough to pass himself off as a Jedi, if he wanted to.

    Thrawn, Talon Karrde and Quinlan Vos. Nuff said.

    I tend not to like SW female characters so much but I did enjoy the cat burglar twins in Timothy Zahn's "Scoundrels" (I think they're called Tavia and Bink). Honourable mention to Juno Eclipse. And I really, really liked Daliah Blue in the Legacy comics. Now that's a woman with a capital W.
