    The Hobbit: Bilbo, Thorin, Bombur, Smaug, Beorn, and Bard. (For the film, I loved ALL the dwarves, nice work there Peter:p)
    Lord of the Rings: Pippin, Gandalf, Samwise, Faramir, Aragorn, Treebeard, Frodo, Eowyn, GoldBerry, and Tom Bomadil.
    Silmarillion: Sauron, Feanor, Luthien, and Turin.
    Also I adore Rover/Roveradom, the Green Dragon, and the Man in the Moon.

    Oh man, but if I had to chose only one....Pippin, I'd go with Pippin.

    Like, I have ALOT in common with Pippin (book and film) and well personal connection with the character (which I'd rather not go into, I just don't feel comfortable talking about it). One thing I will say though is: I have an elder cousin that is about 3 years older than I am and well in regards we are very very very close, he was in the room when i was born. So he's my Merry and I'm his Pippin.

    :D yup. Also Thorin is second place, I relate a lot with him and personality. (Again book and movie) and some of the things he's gone through.

    Faramir. Not only is a capable warrior, leader, ranger, and rich in lore...

    He is an absolute saint! "I will not pick up this thing even if I found it by the wayside."

    Yep. Total Saint.

    I would now have to say that after rereading the series that Elrond (Star Dome) is my favorite. Not only did he fight Sauron alongside Isildur and Gil-galad but he raised Aragorn/Ellesar/Strider, was a member of the white council, defended Dol Guldur and fought back Sauron's shadow, put together the Fellowship and kept the Elven ring of Air safe. He was a healer, a teacher, a father, a friend and more.

    Top Ten:
    Elrond
    Maeglin
    Fëanor
    Gil-galad
    Elrohir
    Tuor
    Beren
    Faramir
    Legolas
    Meriadoc

    "Greater and more lordly was Ecthelion, lord of the fountain, at that time Warden of the Great Gate. All in silver was he clad and upon his shining helm there was set a spike of steel pointed with a diamond."
    -of Ecthelion
