My Favorite Discworld Characters

24 Festive Tasks: Door 23 – Hogswatch, Task 2:

Who is your favorite Discworld character and why?

Hmmm.  Until I read Pyramids two months ago, this one would have been a no-brainer.  Then I met You Bastard …

OK.  This may be slightly unfair, since Granny simply gets more page time than You Bastard, but:

1. Granny Weatherwax
2.  Runners-up, on an equal footing:

  • You Bastard
  • Angua
  • HEX
  • The Librarian

Total badasses and hilariously funny, the lot of them — and all of them can expose humanity’s (and society’s) utter inanity more effectively with a single word, facial expression or gesture than most other characters even by Pratchett himself.

ETA: AND the Librarian of course, for all of the above reasons.  How could I possibly forget the awesome Librarian of Unseen University?!
