PRINCE FLORIAN – A Character Who Stumbles Into Things.
Farid, from the Inkworld series by Cornelia Funke, is the one who always gets into trouble, especially when Dustfinger isn’t there to save his tail.
PRINCE CHARMING – A Character Who Looks Past The Exterior Of Those Around Him.
Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. Okay, this is kind of cheating, but I couldn’t think of anyone else who could go here that would be better suited.
PRINCE PHILLIP – A Character Who Fights For Those He Cares About.
Roran from The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. He will go to the ends of the earth for those he loves, and he will fight until there is no more breath left in him.
PRINCE ERIC – A Character Who Fulfills The “Dreamy Soft Boy” Trope.
Eragon from The Inheritance Cycle. He is definitely a dreamer who has a big heart. He tries to act the part of a Dragon Rider but deep down, all he wants is to live in peace with those he loves safe at his side.
THE BEAST – A Beastly Character Who Is Redeemed.
Murtagh also from The Inheritance Cycle (I’m sensing a pattern here). I can’t say too much for spoilers, but his character arc is one of my favorites because it’s so real. It didn’t happen because the protagonist simply asked him to be good, it happened because Murtagh himself grew and changed.
ALADDIN – A Character Who Assumes A False Identity.
Mortimer “Mo” Folchart from the Inkworld series. The Bluejay is one of my favorite Robin Hood characters.
JOHN SMITH – A Character Who Loves To Explore.
Starflight from the Wings of Fire series by Tui T. Sutherland. Granted he likes to explore through books and scrolls, but still, I think he counts. 🙂
LI SHANG – A Character Who Is A Tough, Military Leader.
Ajihad leader of the Varden from The Inheritance Cycle. I’d really like to put Nasuada in this category, but this tag is for the guys and Ajihad is truly a great military leader.
FLYNN RYDER – A Character Who Is A Scoundrel With A Heart Of Gold.
Finnick O’dair from Catching Fire/Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. He’s portrayed as quite the scoundrel, having captivated the hearts of countless Capital women and shamelessly flirts with Katniss. But then we find out about Annie. The poor girl who was so traumatized by her Games, she went a little crazy, and she’s the love of his life. And how he was so concerned for Mags and Joanna. Despite his flamboyant attitude, he’s just as broken as the rest of the Victors.
PRINCE NAVEEN – A Character Who Undergoes A Transformation.
Dustfinger from the Inkworld series. I can’t say too much because of spoilers, but he definitely underwent a transformation.
KRISTOFF – A Character Who Is A Down-To-Earth Hero.
Samwise Gamgee The Brave. He never set out to be a hero, but his never failing loyalty to Frodo and his friends showed just how great a hero he is, plus he gardens, you can’t really get more down to earth than that! XD All jokes aside, Sam truly does belong in this category.
EMPEROR KUZCO – A Character Who’s Obnoxious But Still Lovable.
Fegnolio from the Inkworld series. He is obnoxious and a bit full of himself, but the way he interacts with Meggie you can’t help but love him.
There are no rules saying I have to tag anyone, so I will tag you! If you are reading this and want to do it go right ahead, but if you do it please let me know, I’d love to read your post! Or you could answer what questions you fancy down in the comments!
