As much as I love Reepicheep and Mr. Tumnus, I had to pick Aslan. :)

I choose Trumpkin.

He's a good character. I think they got a good A Actor for him in the movie.
I also like Hwin and Bree.

This is way to tuff!
But if I have to choose, my favorite non-human character would be Reepicheep!

1. Reepicheep, He is the most noble and courages of them all!
2. Puddleglum, How can you not love him?
3. Trumpkin, I love Trumpkin's atitude!
4. Glimfeather, I love him, I would love to ride him like Jill and Eustace did! Tu-whoo!
I think as others have mentioned, that without Aslan there would be no Narnia!
I wanted to put him down, but he is sort of in a special place in my book. :)

It's a tie between Puddleglum and Trumpkin. I can never decide between those two.

Puddleglum is so heroic, and negative, and so funny. He's one of the most endearing characters in the series.

Trumpkin is so loyal, he'll even risk his life for something he doesn't believe in, just for the sake of pleasing his king. He's very filled with pride. But unlike most prideful characters, he takes it very well when his pride is mortified, such as in the competitions with the children. Trumpkin takes it very maturely when he turns out to be wrong. Overall, he's just a very unusual character. And one of the most surprising things about him is how kind and good and honest he is, even though he's not a follower of Aslan (at the start). Usually in books written by Christians, the non-Christian characters are shown as evil. But there's something different about him.

Well, first off, I didn't pick Aslan.

WAIT STOP. I can explain, I promise! Come back... that's it... I don't bite, despite my woodland namesake. ...Well not much, anyway.

Okay, so the reasoning is this: Aslan is not a Narnian. I know, I know; that's not what the poll means at all. But really... I can't lump Aslan into the same judging category as the rest. He's the son of the Emporer over the Sea, and that makes him everything.

So, as to whom I did pick, that'd be Puddleglum. Mind you, it was a tough choice between him, Reepicheep, and Trufflehunter (badgers are awesome :D ), but in then end, Puddleglum is just so... wonderfully melancholy. He's an ingenious character and brilliantly written. He's the unrelenting optimist disguised as a pessimist, and if it weren't for him, then all of Narnia could have been lost.

Hwin and Bree, because they are three-dimensional characters who have such great motivational plots. And because I'm a native of the Mark of Rohan, so I love horses. ;)

I chose Puddleglum.
His Pessimistic Optimism reminds me a bit of Eeyore in Winnie the Pooh - but he lacks the sarcasm that Eeyore uses so much.

He always expects the worst, and thus he is prepared for every disaster, and nothing can scare him. His calmness is an invaluable help when they face the Green Lady - he stamps out and destroys most of her magic fire. (And there's not much magic in the smell of Burnt Marsh-wiggle.)

Is there a "vote for all of the above" option? :p

All kidding aside, I voted for Aslan. I mean, he is Aslan. The king of all Narnia. How could I not? ;))

But in actuality, I love them all for various reasons.

Mr. Tumnus - My second favorite. He is flawed, obviously, but really, who isn't? His relationship with Lucy is so, so sweet. (James McAvoy's portrayal especially brought Tumnus to light for me. I love how he makes mistakes, but tries to do the right thing overall.

Mr. & Mrs. Beaver - their relationship with the Pevensies is adorable. The Beavers almost play the role of grandparents, or aunt and uncle. They take care of the Pevensies in the absence of the four children's own parents, and also help them get their bearings in Narnia.

Puddleglum - his downhearted, glum mood is what makes him who he is, to be honest. ;)) And it strikes me as amusing all at the same time. He's so endearing and he's an amazing companion to Jill and Eustace; he really rounds out the trio and adds a whole other dimension in his marshwiggle-way. Also, his speech at the end of SC is stunning. “I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia.”

Fledge - It's been a while since I read MN, but Fledge really endeared himself to me first as Strawberry. Then, when he turned into Fledge, he became even better. Normally I dislike it when my characters change in such a manner, and I think I may not have liked it as first, but overall, Fledge's transformation was handled very well. Bravo, C.S. Lewis!

Hwin & Bree - Oh, I love these two, especially together. Bree himself is hilarious, what with his hinny-hoohy-ha-ing. ;)) And Hwin is sweet, mild-mannered, and sensible. And together, they just make a lovely pair. They were great companions for Shasta & Aravis. Bree & Hwin really helped guide Shasta and Aravis through their journey, as well as taking quite a journey of their own.

Jewel - Again, I must say; bravo, C.S. Lewis! I'm noticing a lot of themes here: All of these non-human Narnians were absolutely loyal companions. Jewel is a perfect example of this: His devotion to Tirian, though they were different in many ways, is beautiful. Also, Jewel's quote at the end of The Last Battle has meant so much to me over the years and even inspired my blog title. “I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now...Come further up, come further in!”

Reepicheep - Oh, such a valiant servant of Aslan. ;)) I loved his mouse-ish pride. While my memories of Reepicheep from the books are rather fuzzy (Book-Reepicheep and Movie-Reepicheep have kind of blended together, you see), I do believe he was fantastic either way. His loyalty is inspiring, as well as his journey into the End of the World. That part always made me quite sad. :( I couldn't understand why he'd left, though I'm beginning to understand now.

Trumpkin - It's been so long since I read PC that I think I'd better save most of my comments on him for another time. However, from what I remember, he seems to personify the cynic in all of us. I especially loved the illustrations of him by Pauline Baynes -- his all-over-the-place red hair and wild expressions always amused me. ;))

Ah, okay, I think I'm done now. ;))

Trufflehunter is really awesome. I like his personality in both the film and the book.

Not enough votes for Puddleglum! He manages to make me laugh and cry. Seriously, I don't know if any other character managed that in one book. Part of the reason I think The Silver Chair would make such a great film adaptation, there are plenty of laugh out loud lines. I think glumPuddle's character study on Youtube said a lot of the things that I would want to. Puddleglum's not really depressed, he's just so...realistic about everything? As glumPuddle said in his video, when things are going badly he finds the good in them, and when things are going well he is prepared for disappointment. To me, he's a very well-developed character. I wish there was another book with him, Jill, and Eustace interacting...they're a brilliant trio.

Defiantly Jewel, after Aslan.

well to more descriptive. jewel was in one of my favorite Narnia books, The Last Battle. He is a good friend to one of my favorites, King Tirian, and also very bold and courageous. Jill Pole was fascinated by him, I guess that I am also intrigued by him. Probably mostly though, because of himself being in the Last Battle.
