Who is your favorite fictional character, why and how do they influence your life today?
From early childhood in to my teens, I admired and aspired to be Spock from Star Trek. Why? No emotions and amnesty from their associated pains. "Illogical, Captain!" was my answer to most things at that time in my life. I actually remember reciting to myself, "Emotion is illogical! I am Vulcan - I am not capable of emotion!"
Do you have a role model from the annals of fiction who/which has affected your life and way of thinking in adulthood?
Lucy Pevensie, Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis. Her faith in Aslan is astounding. Her fiath is truly encouraging.
Don Quixote; by Miguel De Cervantes. In time, an epic stuggle capturing the essence of human existence.
James Bond; showed us the other side of life where the excitement never ends.
Mickey Mouse; inspired a generation of fun loving kids and adults, and taught us to laugh.
I don't have ONE favorite, and it depends on what I'm currently reading or watching. Right now my fave is Father Tim Kavanagh from the Mitford Years books by Jan Karon. I got turned off by organized religion decades ago, but the FT character lives his beliefs as he goes about his day tending his flock, but without being preachy. No bible thumping, no predictions of fire and brimstone, just quietly sprinkles pearls of wisdom and and examples of how he lives by the Golden Rule.
My favourite has to be the young Cathy from Wuthering Heights. She goes through a hard time and comes out resilient and strong, though she herself knows she is not perfect and her emotions get the better of her. In the end she always puts right whatever she can. I try to do the same.
It's got to be Jane Eyre: she is so passionate, empathetic, humble, full of life, yet morally grounded. She helps me remember to do the right thing all the time, even if it's going to be painful. Her enthusiasm and love of other people makes her my number one fictional character of all time!
Spider-Man! Everything from his motto, "With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility," to his ridiculously cool powers and witty one-liners. Oh yes, I would punch my own mother to be Spider-Man, which ironically wouldn't be very Spider-Manly of me, but I'll start the whole "power/responsibility" thing right after.
