15 characters in 15 minutes

I've nicked this from vegmb's journal:

Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen fictional characters (television, films, plays, books) who've influenced you and that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.


01. Odysseus in Homer's Iliad and Odyssey
02. King Arthur
03. Merlin in Mary Stewart's Merlin-novels
04. Alexander in Mary Renault's Alexander-novels
05. Ayla in Jean Auel's Earth Children-novels
06. Aragorn in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings
07. Lucius Cornelius Sulla in Colleen McCullough's Master of Rome-novels
08. King David in Joseph Heller's God Knows
09. Claudius in Robert Graves's I, Claudius and Claudius the God, and as played by Derek Jacobi in the 1970s BBC television adaptation
10. Lord Sebastian Flyte in Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited, and as played by Anthony Andrews in the 1980s ITV television adaptation
11. Robin Hood in the 1980s ITV television series Robin of Sherwood, as played by Michael Praed
12. Pride and Prejudice's Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the 1995 BBC television adaptation
13. Bram Stoker's Dracula's Dracula, as played by Gary Oldman
14. BtVS's Spike, as played by James Marsters
15. Indiana Jones, as played by Harrison Ford


A collection of adventurers and drunkards, most of them based on historical or semi-historical characters. I think that says enough about me.
