Top Ten Secondary Characters

Top Ten Tuesday

Hosted by the Broke and the Bookish

So this was a tough one for me as I have a hard enough time remembering the main character’s names. And I realized that most of my favorite secondary characters are from Harry Potter as they are the most memorable for me and I actually cared for them and not just Harry.

Malfoy from Harry Potter

Yes, he’s a “bad guy” but his character is just so interesting (and I’ve always had a huge crush on him). There is just enough information about him to picture him perfectly, but not so much you can’t picture your own stories about his life.

Dustfinger from Inkheart

My favorite character in this series.  He is always mysterious and elusive and just awesome..

Nico from Percy Jackson series

Another mysterious character I really wish I could see more of.

Annabeth from Percy Jackson series

Annabeth is amazing and she does get her own voice sometimes, but she’s never the star…however, she is by far  my favorite female character.

Sirius Black from Harry Potter

A wonderful character I wish I found was a secret godparent…I loved the scenes wit Sirius.

Isabelle Lightwood from TMI series

Another awesome female character who isn’t the main character…strong, beautiful, and independent.

Lupin from Harry Potter

Hmm, I may have spotted a theme for this post,…Lupin is another one of my favorite HP characters. Wish there were more stories about him too…

Who are yours? Got any similar ones?

    It would be so easy to fill the whole list with Harry Potter characters. They are so brilliant. 😀

  2. Big series books seem to have lots of minor characters, I think.

    Here’s my list of best secondary book characters.

  3. I love your list, mostly because I know who ALL these characters are. LOL. That doesn’t happen very often with TTT. Great picks!

  4. Loved Lupin and Sirius- couldn’t fir them on the list hough.

  5. THANK YOU for including Malfoy! I have been waiting for somebody to include him on their TTT list after reading about Ron, Hermione, Neville, Luna, Hagrid, Dobby, Dumbledore, Lupin, Tonks, Snape, and every other character known to the Harry Potter world. I wish that I included him on my list. I think that he is actually a very deep character because he just wants to be loved by his father and make friends at school. It is a shame that he had to turn to the dark side.
    I also agree with including Annabeth on your list. She keeps Percy grounded and is an excellent strategist and fighter. Girl power all the way!
    Great list!
    Check out my TTT list:

    Well I am glad you agree with Malfoy! It was great that he was the villain in the story, yet we also felt sympathy and understood where he was coming from (for the most part). He was a villain, but human…and in the end he grew as a person too (in my imagination anyway).

  7. […] Steph of Unlikely Librarian also made her list, replete with Harry Potter lovelies. […]
