I can't help myself. Obi-Wan Kenobi!
(Though I do harbor a soft spot for Han Solo)
Han and Leia
But you've got to love R2 and 3PO
All too hard to say...uuuum
1. Darth Bane
2. Kir Kanos
3. Luke Skywalker
4. Carnor Jax
5. Jacen Solo
6. Han Solo
well i must say i really love the whole jag and jaina thing in fate of the jedi ( except when christie ruins it ) but i must say i love luke because he struggled with the whole "luke i am your father' and still built back a new jedi order i mean i know its flawed but come on he did it! oh can't forget mara jade. han solo kicks ass. and i don't get the big deal with boba fett i mean he is most over rated star wars character EVER! i know u all will say he is cool but come on he isn't that good there are so many awesome characters out there. ( boba fans take no offence) or jango as well
Q-E, 2-E, and U-E are my favorites.
After them, I like.. everyone. I like all the star wars characters for different reasons.
Never actually read the Thrawn books but from what I know he'd be one.
(R2 too! - always need a funny droid)
I have a Corellian bias...
Well-written bad guys are the best, so the majority of the ones on my list are villains.
Top 10 in a rough order (no exact numbering for a reason)
- Revan (everything, light and dark)
- Corran Horn
- Exar Kun
- Qui-gon Jinn (but as much as I love Liam Neeson, his character didn't shine till he went into the EU)
- Jango Fett- one of the few good things about AotC, made better in comics and his video game
- Nom Anor
General Veers gets an honorable mention.
Luke used to be a favorite, but he's been overshadowed over time because of increased exposure to new things to read/play/watch. Still woefully behind though, so some of it could change. IG-88 and Jango are just barely hanging on there and I'm still not even halfway through NJO (with a few post-RotJ but pre-NJO to still read as well), with plenty of CW novels to read plus most of the comics, and I have so far mostly avoided TCW due to my annoyance towards the existence of Ahsoka and so on. So I've got a lot of catching up to see who I like. Wookieepedia helps so I know what goes on in a lot of other areas (especially when it deals with post RotJ), but it's not the same as actually reading it.
I doubt Palpatine, Revan, Corran and Bane will ever be bumped from the list though.
Exar Kun (don't know why, I think that whole storyline struck me just right).
Dooku (gentleman villains are so much more fun that indiscriminate monsters)
Ulic Qel-Droma (see Exar above)
Well I'd say Jacen Solo's my favourite and after that would be his bro Anakin.
Thou HK-47 is not to bad either... Meatbags.
Upping this for newer members of the boards.....
For me it would be Starkiller, Mara Jade, Luke, Han, chewbacca, R2 and 3PO, wedge, Landon, darth vader, Obi wan, darth maul, Thrawn, jacen solo, ackbar, revan, darth Bane, mace Windu, Palpatine, and Yoda. Yeah I know I like alot of them
And alot of them hold Lightsabers!!
Cem Fel- until I realize that we've never actually seen him and I'm basing that off of wishful thinking more than anything else.
I'm becoming a total Imperial fangirl though- Thrawn, Pellaeon, Jag... I'm even developing a bit of a soft spot for Vitor Reige.
Otherwise- Kyp and Jaina. Was a big Tenel Ka fan when I was younger and into YJK. She's less interesting as Queen Mother- and Kyp's less interesting simply due to lack of appearance.
Can't argue with that, authors need to know we need more Kyp, and Kyp being dangerous and reckless!
Vergere, by far. Possibly because I discovered her when I was for all intents and purposes insane at the time, and her philosophy gave me a halfway workable structure to see things. Also, because she's fascinating. Unreliable narrator, what is she really, and all sorts of cool quotes.
I have a thing for older men and grey characters that still have standards.
Obi Wan Kenobi
Mine would have to be Jacen.
Being as I just started the task of reading Thrawn's story arc after 5 years absence from EU, I *may* count him among my fave EU chars but I don't know as I'm not even 100 pages into HotE yet.
Anakin Solo and Tahiri Veila
Ben Skywalker , followed by Seha Dorvald!
