Favorite Fictional Heroes



So I've been doing some thinking lately, (while I'm daydreaming about my latest hero), and I wondered.

Who's your favorite fictional hero? Do you have a 'type' you usually go for?

Me? I always went for cowboys. I think it was the strength I saw in them. The sense of honor. They did the right thing, no matter the cost. And when they loved, it was completely.

Those cowboys in the movies fed my imagination for years. Then I found Louis L'Amour's books and I lost myself in his descriptions of men and women who fought the elements and sometimes themselves and still managed to tame a continent.

And is there a woman alive who can resist a cowboy like Sam Elliott? The strength of character? That gravelly voice?

So tell me. What's your favorite type of hero? Give me some names. Are you a Highlander girl? An English Lord? A fireman? Police Officer? Let's hear it. Come on, let's talk heroes.
