Today the topic of Top Ten Tuesdays is Top Ten Favorite Secondary Characters .

There are a lot of secondary characters whom I love and I tend to continue with series which have quirky cast of characters. It’s really hard to choose just one from such a cast but here goes:

1, Luidaeg the sea witch from Seanan McGuire’s Toby Daye series
She’s always cranky, but with a very good reason.

2, Sethra Lavode from Steven Brust’s Vlad Taltos series
She’s the most powerful sorceress in her world and also a vampire and quite a mysterious figure.

3, Ky Tung from Lois McMaster Bujold’s Vorkosigan series
Tung is an old mercenary.

4, Dunworthy from Connie Willis’ to Say Nothing of the Dog
I love the cast of this book! Poor hard working Dunworthy tries his best to keep his part of the university working.

5, Nobby Nobbs by Terry Pratchett
Prachett has lots of very enjoyable characters and it’s hard to pick just one but Nobbs’ subplot in Jingo was great.

6, Jack Robinson by Kerry Greenwood
A hard working cop in Melbourne who happily can count of Phryne to help him.

7, Joseph by Kage Baker
One of the immortals in this series.

8, Pirate captain Phaelan Benares by Lisa Shearin
Shearin has also a great cast of characters but I have a soft spot of (fictional) pirates.

9, Commander Zala by A Lee Martinez
A fierce Venusian warrior who is forced to protect her greatest enemy.

10, Iskierka by Naomi Novik
One of the dragons in the series, she’s perhaps them most aggressive of them.
