Aviendha is a great character as well!
Mine is Moiraine and Mat. Ive had a crush on Mat since I was 12 years old. =) And Moiraine is just amazing.
Aviendha is a very close tie with Moiraine and Mat. I have always felt like I could relate to Aviendha's personality and the Aiel culture is fascinating. I wish I could train with the Wise Ones!
Every time I re-read the series, my perspective changes. Rand, of course, is a well built, great character. Honorable, humble, and imperfect, he's amazing.
Tam has grown on me recently; I love the simplicity of his outlook, and how humble he is. A blademaster and father of the Dragon could be a king.
Moiraine and Siuan have always been near the top of my list. Driven as any Blue should be, they are the very pinnacle of what an Aes Sedai should be.
Verin is the picture of a true Brown. She's driven to collect knowledge, but doesn't ignore the world around her. She bows when she has to, but retains her dignity; she is almost like a Blue in many ways. Throughout the book, she is respected even by Aes Sedai stronger in the Power.
Vanin is one of my favorite side characters; he is loyal, capable, and respectable. Developing a fatherly outlook towards Elayne was just perfect for him.
Saerin is maybe my second favorite character. She's Brown Ajah, intimidating, and perhaps the second most powerful woman in the tower (after Egwene). She's dedicated to Brown Ajah ideals, but doesn't ignore the world around her. She supports Egwene, and give off all the right vibes.
My favorite is, I must say, Cadsuane. She is the ideal Aes Sedai, dedicated to her Ajah, but displays traits of all. Born in Far Madding, she grew up in an anti-Power society, yet became the most powerful Aes Sedai (how did Verin get banished, after all?!?). She was taught at a time where Aes Sedai dignity and power were declining (look where those are today *cough* Shemerin *cough*). Abducted, taught, and strengthened by a wilder, she learned how to be a true Aes Sedai, and was gifted her powerful net. Now, she works singe-handedly to save the Tower, as well as meddling in everything she can. Her strength of will, wisdom, and no-nonesense attitude place her at the top of my list. If only we could see how she deals with the Seanchan! (Expect some embarrassed Sul'dam).
