Picking a favourite book character is like picking a favourite child. It's not really possible, I love them all so much. However, when I first read this the first character to pop into my mind was Cara, from the Sword of Truth series. I love the Mordsith, they have been through hell and back and they find the inner strength to keep going, that's powerful.
Cara comes out as a favourite above the other Mordsith probably just because she is more prominent in the series but they all hold a special place in my heart as the character type resonates strongly.
