This week topic is favorite minor characters. Now the characters I’m going to mentioned are not exactly minor character, but they aren’t main character either. They are secondary and while their story is pretty fleshed out, I want more! Without further ado, let’s see who they are.
Ahh Kenji, my sunshine in Shatter Me series. If it wasn’t for him, I know I won’t continue with this series and finish it. You guys can fights Warner or Adam all you want, I’ll take Kenji happily. He’s an amazing friend, brother and leader to all. He keep everyone safe and happy, can fight and be serious when needed to be. He started the pattern of “funny guys with terrible past” rather than “bad boys with terrible past” for me, a theme that applies for all 5 guys I mentioned in this post.
Oh Nikolai, I bet a lot of people would DNF Siege and Storm if it wasn’t for you. His presence was such a breath of relief from the angst romance between Mal and Alina and the hopelessness of their situation against the Darkling. Nikolai has amazing sense of humor and swagger, but also an amazing leader that intuitive and truly cares of Ravka. He’s not exactly good at diplomacy without irritating his opponents, but he’s one of the most charming prince I’ve ever read about *swoons*
He might be portrayed as the most mature and wisest of the Marauders, but remember that’s he’s also often the mastermind of their pranks and I believe he ~sometimes~ use his power as prefect to prank people. Remus Lupin has be biggest, bravest heart I’ve ever read about. He’s compassionate with other people, care about his friends, and the best Defense teacher Hogwarts Harry-era ever had. He truly deserved better.
No, this is not a wolfstar post. While Remus has the biggest heart, Sirius has the biggest loyalty. Not that I meant Remus is not loyal, but Sirius loyalty is unquestionable. Whether it’s to James, the Order, or Harry. He spent 12 years in Azkaban, and when he’s free, he jumped right back into action to defeat Voldy and protect Harry. Truly a Gryffindor.
One of my favorite characters of all time: Magnus Bane! Where do I begin? He’s half Indonesian (YAY! even though I wish he told more about his life in Indonesia), he’s fabulous, throw amazing parties, and Malec gave me life. He might say that he do not concern himself with Shadowhunters business, but oh look where he is now. In too deep. His sense of humor, and sometimes, his narcissism produce a really entertaining scenes, and his relationships with the shadowhunters are very heart warming. Can’t wait to read more of him.
Honorable mention: Nico diAngelo (PJO, HoO, ToA), Daroga (Phantom of the Opera), Quincey Morris (Dracula), Hector (Starcrossed)
