So there’s this list going around about the 15 fictional characters that most struck a chord with you. One is supposed to make the list off the top of your head, but man, I’m really bad at that. It did take me less than fifteen minutes, but I agonized over a few of the choices here.
It’s a solid list, though perhaps some people would question how a list could contain both Hannibal Lecter AND Winnie the Pooh. Or debate with me that Miyamoto Musashi and Hunter S Thompson were both technically real people. I approached both through fiction about them, so I feel it valid to include them here.
The 15 Fictional Characters List
in no particular order
- Captain Jean-Luc Picard – Star Trek: The Next Generation
- Laguna Loire – Final Fantasy VIII
