gulberat: Alyosha Strannik. Everything written from his perspective comes out written extremely well.
marcusdkane: Some of your peripheral characters, like Claire and S'r'ss, used to be the most enjoyable, but I will admit that Amanda Palmer has really grown on me in recent stories.
jonsills: Grunt. The most competent...and unluckiest(?) Ferengi in Starfleet.
patrickngo: Enrico Montoya, the one character who continues to be badass long after his death.
shevet: Tylha Shohl, though Amiga and Kophil are also fun.
cmdrscarlet: Kathryn Beringer, by far.
danquelier: The Nameless Commander, though honourable nods also go to Rycho and Xa'Jev.
superhombre: Ch'Raul, though I also like T'Panna and, to a lesser extent, Yair. In general, I like the fact that most of your characters are so deeply flawed.
(Note that I apologize to anyone else who didn't appear on the list, I was simply going with the characters who immediately popped to mind).
Let's see... favorite characters...
sander233: Frank Grimes, General Ssharki, and I'm also thinking Jesu and H'mL'n.
gulberat: Strannik hands down, but I would also like to see more of Admiral Berat.
marcusdkane: Amanda Palmer and Claire, though S'rR's is pretty interesting, too. But yeah, I'm definitely intrigued by Claire--part of me even wants to put an AI in at least one of my ships.
jonsills: Grunt, hands down. I just love hearing about his misadventures, though I look forward to the day when he finally gets a properly functioning ship, not a bucket of bolts held together with spit and baling wire.
patrickngo: Eighty-Six, once again because of the AI angle. Also Liz Tran, and I hope that the romance between her and Jesu continues after
Road to Ruin
is over. Though I am also liking some of the characters in his latest story,
, namely D'Daku and Mary Moriarty, and that one Starfleet Ensign--she had guts leaving the ship like she did and jumping onto an enemy ship.
ambassadormolari: My favorite character among yours is probably Ta'nara, and I'm hopeful she and Veleen will get to interact sometime, be it in-game, here in an LC, or in another story.
No clue on any of the others--mainly focused on my favorite writers for these LCs.
Actually, after reading the revised entry from cmdrscarlet, I'd say my favorite character from her would definitely be Katherine Beringer. And a great entry, scarlet!!
