Favorite Male Character

Another day in the challenge, and another challenge for myself as a reader. I don't see this prompt and think "HA! I have a favorite male character! This is perfect!" I am always constantly challenging myself to figure out these answers. So I am just going to type for this one and see what comes to mind.


Going back into my fandom days, I was quite in love with Remus Lupin from Harry Potter. I remember reading endless forums devoted to him, his story and theories surrounding him. I remember back when I gobbled Woodiwiss' backlist, seeing Ruark, the hero from Shanna, show up in I think it was Petals on the River or A Rose in Winter, was super amazeballs. But I don't really have like a Mr Darcy that I always go to (shameful confession alert: I've never read Pride and Prejudice). 


I don't know. I am a love em and leave em girl. It's hard for me to remember specifics about characters enough to even call them my favorite since I devour books and not savor them. This means, that when it is a series, I get a chance to get to know them better and remember more about them. But I flat out refuse to chose or even allude to any favorite characters in A Song of Ice and Fire. That would be like the kiss of death.
