"What Do Your Five Favorite Characters Say About You?"

From Pajiba:

'It’s kind of interesting what your favorite five says about you."




(I'm restricting it to TV characters - I have too many favorite fictional characters to pick only 5 if I include movies and books too. Sorry Pajiba. So below my five favorite TV characters.) 
 


Richard Sharpe (Sharpe Series)


John Thornton (North and South)


Morse (John Thaw)


Mrs. Peel  (The Avengers)
 
Ruth Evershed (Spooks)


What does it say about me??

If you want to do it too, pick your five favorites, here are the rules from Pajiba;

 
"So, a few ground rules:



1.Your five favorite characters. Fictional characters. I like Ann Richards too. This isn’t that.



2. You will find that five will feel impossible. In a tiebreaker, weigh the RIGHT NOW over the ALL TIME.

3. Now is not the only factor though, otherwise Imperator Furiosa would be on every list.

4. Books, TV, commercials, video games, anything is okay. Is it a Pokemon character? Great! Is it that model in the Sunglass Hut ad that exudes the kind of demure confidence you wish you had? Fine! No points for just plain randomness. Like uhhhh “Tony the Tiger!” Unless he speaks to you on a molecular level, he’s out.

5. Honesty is job 1. If you wish it was Ned Stark but it’s Littlefinger, say Littlefinger. If you wish it was Don Draper but it’s Pete Campbell, say Pete Campbell.
