Vetinari - but I think you lot kind of guessed that ... He's clever, sexy, enigmatic and complex
Vimes - A perfect foil for Vetinari
Death - He's just wonderful ... and my dad says I can read him well!
Sybil - She's just wonderful
Gaspode - 'I did not say Woof ...!'
Constable Visit - I know he's not a big character but I like the fact that he fights on even if he knows it's a losing battle...
Sergeants Detritus, Angua, and Cheery - I love the Troll, Werewolf, Dwarf dynamic...
Human Greebo - Witches Abroad when he turned into a human ... :twisted: drool!
William De Worde and Otto Chriek - Think there should be another William De Worde novel...

Thats it I think!

After reading Unseen Academicals, I'd forgotten how much I liked Ponder Stibbons. :D

Nanny Ogg is my absolute favourite, possibly my favourite fictional character ever. Vetinari, Granny Weatherwax, Death, Carrot and Gaspode are all runners up. Although many of the others are not that much further behind.

I like Vimes, but not as much as most people seem to, I actually prefer most of the rest of the watch. The only lead character I'm indifferent to is Moist.

Hi and welcome Taliesin :D

I agree with you 100% there. I like him, but he's just a plodding copper as far as I'm concerned, nothing special.
(We are obviously not "most people")

I do like Moist though.

And I absolutely LOVE Professor Hix. :twisted:

I agree about Vimes, but Moist is one of my favourite, after Vetinari of course. He's my number one.
I like Moist as I like Granny and Mustrum (he's wonderful, why nobody name him?).
Then in third position i'd put Nanny, Tick, Tiffany, and the adorable wee free men..

But from what book is Professor Hix? I don't remember him. (if he's from UA no spoilers!)

like everyone else I find it hard to choose a favourite.
but to name a few..... Mrs Cake - I'd like to see her again in another book.
Qoth the Raven - with his penchant for eyeballs and going undercover in Thief of Time and getting it wrong.
Granny Weatherwax. Susan. Lu-Tze and Lobsang Ludd.
and in Unseen Academicals I loved all the new characters but I think Pepe stood out for me - his micromail doesn't chafe.
but the list could go on and on and...........

I came across this thread and was shocked that i seemed to be the only person to pick Brutha (from small gods) as my favourite character for reasons best known to someone else. A close second was Vetenari. Other characters of note that I feel have been overlooked are Windle Poons, the bursar, stanley howler and King Verence II of Lancre (maybe because he just changed the side of the door he slept on, when he became King)

It's a no-brainer really. Vimes. Always and forever Vimes. For that level of healthy cynicism there could be no competition for me.
