What was the question ?
What is your preferred hero ? or what is the best character personality developped by Elaine ?

My preferred hero is Matteo. I dreamt for a so long time about a hero who would act without magic !

The best work about personality, according to me is... may be Liriel

But I do not know Ebenezer Stonemile nor Bronwyn

The last two characters are from the novel Thornehold, the last book (I think) of the Harper series. A good book.

In the French version, it's written this last novel was entitled "The Dream Spheres" (1999). Is it the same novel ? The cover is the same as Thornehold

Indeed in "Le prix des rÍves" (which would be "The Price of Dreams"), we can read about Bronwyn Carradoon and the dwarf Ebenezer

Thornhold and The Dream Spheres are separate novels. Bronwyn and Ebenezer were in Thornhold, which was indeed the last of the Harpers series.

Be carefull, because the French books series "Fleuve noir" is horrible, it does not translate the story, but shorten and simplify it a lot. In fact, I think the authors, if they knew French, would be ashamed their names are written on those books.

I think I like all her character. Elaith, Danilo, Arilyn, Matteo, Tzigone and Liriel. I Can't chose between them and have a faovrit. They are all great and so different. They all are the best of ther cathegorie.

Sorry for my bad English, I'm french born

Elaith or Danilo or Liriel, can't decide they're all great. Oh, I like the dwarwen bard from Elfsong to. But poor me havn't gotten hold of C&K and Thornhold yet.

Elaith Craulnober ftw. I love that dark anti-hero stuff. Especially if they have an overdeveloped sense of nobility. Like Vegeta in DBZ.. lol. hehe.

This was a tough one but I voted Elaith...he was the most interesting character to me, followed by Danilo.

I have a dream that one day, all game worlds will exist as one.

So many necromancers in the halls. So many "dead" scrolls are resurfacing.

Voted Liriel.

Elaith, but how about Ka'narlist?

Thread necromancy, FTW!

I like Liriel & Elaith very much; neither is straightforward or one-dimensional.

But my favourite probably has to be Ferret from Silver Shadows. She's not a major character, but I like the idea of seeing what happens when a character is in a fish-out-of-water situation.

No need to apologize. That was just a joke.

To the OP, is this supposed to be restricted to Elaine's FR characters? Not that I've read her non-FR works, but I'm considering, especially her Pathfinder ones.

So perhaps some scribes can share their thoughts on some of Elaine's non-FR characters?
