    Alurda has all my love. She's a strong woman who treads her own path and doesn't take crap from anyone.

    @Elia LePhant I love Verin. Please pretend to be shocked that this is coming from a Brown :lol but I do. Loial is probably a close second. Third is Bela because.... well, Bela. I can't pick just one of them!

    What about you? ^^

    I have an undying love for Androl Genhald actually, and I am super salty we didn't get more about him and Pevara. I think he was a super interesting character and I'd love a whole book about just him. :love

    Is there a particular WoT character you could express your undying love for?

    I absolutely love Egwene. How could you not? She starts out your typical tagalong know-it-all and turns into a complete boss lady who knows who she is and what she cares about.
    Also, she's always been the character I relate to the most so I've always felt the closest to her, especially since I was about her age the first time I met her.

    Matrim Cauthon, hands DOWN!

    Best man of any universe!
    He's (street)smart, fun, funny, strong, creative, handsome, loyal
    He's a no-nonsense kind of guy who has his priorities straight, doesn't blindly follow authority or bow down to superficial crap like titles, power or public or peer pressure.
    He knows who he is, what he's about, his strengths and his weaknesses and doesn't need to constantly prove himself to be a bloody hero while all the while being a bloody hero.
    His morals and principles stand like a Sa'Angreal made house and could very well serve as a guide for our Real Life world and we'd see an instant improvement in all our lives.
    He knows his abilities without needing to boast or brag about them which makes him look like an easy target (big huge flipping mistake!)
    He inspires and motivates thousands to follow him, to look at him for example and to improve themselves on a daily basis.
    AND...

    He knows how to handle a Green like nobody's business!

    That's mah boy, Mat! Matty! Mattiliciuos Cauthon! :ha:joy:ha:wave:ha:joy:ha

    Wow! I had no idea we had such a Mat fan in our midst. :lol

    I'd love to know who the glorious @Leo Kian thinks is worthy of undying admiration and love :look

    Rand is my favorite Wheel of Time character and beats out Roland from The Dark Tower series as my favorite all-time fictional character.

    What is it about Rand that you like the most? Is it aspects of his personality (and who he is as a character) or just his whole character arc and development over the series?
