I Heart Characters! #5: Mentor Me, Minor Character!

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….

Chade Fallstar

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:

Mentor Me!

(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!!!

Let me know which characters would you choose for these topics.

  1. Zezee YES!! Jessica Pearson from Suits is so badass! I loved her!! I don’t think I got to season 3 because we gave up cable but I LOVED her… she was just as formidable as the leads of Suits (who I also love, but agree she would be the lawyer mentor I’d want too!) ❤️ And Chade… gotta love a spy! Every time you bring up Robbin Hobb I think that I’ve got to read that entire series! I did get my reading partner to pick up the first book… but I think I’ve got to just jump to the Tawny Man series and skip the earlier set…?! What do you think yes? No?! 😀 Perfect choices!


    1. Noooo!!! 😀 lol lol Start with the Farseer ones. I mean, you could start with the Liveship Ones instead, but reading from Farseer to the Tawney Man makes the little surprise nuggets in that story that much better. Some things probably won’t be as impactful if you don’t read those other books first, but I do understand not wanting to slog through the others before sampling the awesomeness of the Tawney Man books. 😀
      Lol, I think I may have mentioned Robin Hobb’s characters in every I Heart post so far lol. I’ll have to check.
      And yea! Jessica was great. I LOVED her wardrobe.
