I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani at Perspective of a Writer to share our love of great characters. Each week, Dani will assign a topic/type of character that we must find examples of in the various media we consume (books, TV shows, movies, comics, podcasts, etc.).
Last week’s topic:
A minor character who needs their own story
(Any character I want an expanded story about.)
Oh…this one is a toughy. There are so many to choose from. Well, since I’m on a Robin-Hobb kick at the moment, I choose….
First of all, that’s a bad-ass name for a spy and secondly, he has become a more fascinating character in the Tawney Man trilogy, which made me curious about his backstory. Reading a trilogy about him, the adventures he had before and while in service to the kingdom, would be loads of fun. We get some info on him in the Tawney Man trilogy, but it’s not enough. I want a whole book about him or from his perspective.
This week’s topic:
(A mentor character that I wish would mentor me too!)
I was going to choose Dumbledore but then I realized that Dumbledore isn’t a great mentor. He’s too manipulative. So instead, I chose —
Jessica Pearson from Suits
…though she can be manipulative too.
Suits is drama TV show that airs on USA network that I used to love. The story revolves around the lawyers at a prestigious law firm and I was hooked on it all through seasons 1 and 2 and maybe 3 too. I think this TV show is the perfect selection for this category because the first season focuses on a guy who’s being mentored by one of the lawyers at the firm. I, however, would like to be mentored by Jessica Pearson because she’s a fierce, formidable, independent woman in charge of the firm, and she slays all day every day. I LOVE her wardrobe!!!
