    Our next tournament is going to be full-sized. You can suggest any character that has appeared in literature, but please only suggest four in one post, and no back-to-back posts. Also, please include Wikipedia links (or other links if Wiki doesn't have them) so I don't have to go searching for a hundred some links when the tournament starts.


    These can be classic or contemporary characters. Although it is literature, so let's try to stay away from a bunch of sci-fi or fantasy characters exclusively.
