My second choice would be Laeral.

As for the reasons why... well, I think Steven already summed those up rather well!

Be well
Oh like as a charcter .
Well I voted Storm, as I finally found some art that actually depicts her as desirable woman (on some solo novel of hers).

But as characters... None of the chosen really strike a chord within me.

Good poll, and tough pick.

I went with the Simbul because she's just a force of nature at this point. But I almost had to go "all of the above".

For second pick, it's equally difficult. I'll have to sat Qilué here. She has a very difficult road as Chosen of Eilistraee as well as Mystra, but I do believe those drow who strive for it are deserving of their redemption.

Syluné - she's misunderstood more than most, and seems particularly compassionate, gentle and caring. She has time for everyone and there is an air of mystery about her that intrigues me.

Second choice would be Laeral, mostly because of her sense of humour.

Did her story in Silverfall influence your choice?

I know it went aways in nearly swaying my initial choices of the Simbul and Laeral .

Personally we say magic jar the whole lot of em, but as this is a poll the one we dislike the least is Qilue. Can't really explain why that one is least dispised of the rest *shrugs*

I like them all, but Storm appeals to me the most. I think it is the powerful, but at the same time real. having read most of the realms novel pertaining to her, it seems to me that she is most happy in some patched up dirty pants, working the fields with the general population. at the same time, mess with her and it's on.

I had to go with Storm... Don't know why, but she always seemed the most down-to-earth... Plenty of sass to boot ...

*nods* Storm comes across to me as by far the most approachable.

I think they all have speicific archetypes to fulfill, which is why they are all different. However, it does help to be nearly invincible and immortal to develop your character so clearly.

I love all the Sisters. Silverfall is one of my favorite FR novels. The Simbul and Storm stand out for me. I chose Storm because I feel like I would enjoy myself in her presence moreso that with The Simbul (what with her casting of spells all willy-nilly and whatnot).

"That's right, hurl back views that force ye to think by name-calling - 'tis the grand old tradition, let it not down! Anything to keep from having to think, or - Mystra forfend - change thy own views!"

Narnra glowered at her father. "Just how am I to learn how to think? By being taught by you?"

Laeral. she seems to be the one who stands out to me. I love the way she presents herself in the books. The others don't seem to have the same kind of...what's the word... they just feel like they are missing something compared with Laeral.


"What's that," asked Mogget.
"Sardines," said Sam. "I knew they were standard rations, so I got a few tins for you."
"What are sardines?" Moggest asked suspiciously. "And why is there a key? Is this some sort of Abhorsen joke?"

I'll keep it simple. I chose Alustriel; her ability to inspire her loyalty and her own loyalty to those people are qualities I enjoy seeing in a character set up as a ruler (her scenes with Taern in Silverfall was rather nice). I also enjoy the way she's been a calm, smooth operating politician in an area taht (especially as of late) has been pretty much ridden with strife.

I chose Laeral. Last pick would be The Simbul. She has an ego problem in my opinion and I don't like that....but I don't hate her, just like her the least.

Storm is the most interesting one to me. I can't imagine myself walking out in the middle of a blizzard wearing nothing just to help others.

I used to like storm but that description of her carrying a tree in Stormlight brings images of swartznegger in commando which is kinda scary, so I vote for Learal

Tough choice, really. In the end I decided to pick Laeral. Why? Intelligent, mischievous, interesting - and a bit unpredictable. All of which appeals to me.

Alustriel has my vote. She has that politician, woman of mystery and power thing going on. She is cool with every one. She likes to have a good time. Plus she lives in one of my favorite cities in the realms.
