Approximately ten fictional characters (television, films, plays, books) who've influenced me and will always stick with me.
Nausicaa from Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind
Every heroine from Tamora Pierce's Tortall books, especially Daine
Delenn from Babylon 5
Oscar François de Jarjayes from The Rose of Versailles
Kaoru Orihara from Onii-sama e (aka Brother, Dear Brother)
MacKenzie Allen from Commander in Chief
Captain Janeway and Captain Picard from Star Trek
Lois and Clark from Lois and Clark: The Adventures of Superman
Pike Dexter from Big Eden
Nikki Wade from Bad Girls (the British TV series)
I'm sure I'm forgetting others.
I'm not tagging anyone--do it if you feel like it.
