Puddleglum and Mr. and Mrs. Beaver (LWW). They are cute beavers.

While it's so tempting to pick a character like Puddleglum, Reepicheep or even Jewel, I ultimately had to go with Aslan. There is so much wisdom and layered symbolism to be found in his words and actions in the Chronicles. His character and other characters' interactions with him are truly the best parts of the series, and he's the "glue" that holds all of the books together, if you will. He is a truly remarkable character; I've never seen anything like Aslan anywhere else in fiction.

Puddleglum! I love how he puts a bold face on everything. I'm a pessimist, so Puddleglum's courage is inspiring to me.

My favorite Narnia character would have to be Puddleglum. I am rather gloomy and skeptical at heart. It was an advantage for Puddleglum to not be so gullible and somewhat distrusting of the giants. His outlook on life was not completely sad but rather a healthy skepticism as was his view of the giants at Harfang. :)

Reepicheep for his courage and leadership, but also because he is funny and so cute in the movies.

(Mrs. Beaver is also a favorite!)

My favorite? Reepicheep, of course! =))

Oh okay, I'll give a better answer than that. Of course I love Aslan, but as a kid, I didn't understand Aslan. It was weird: you got this powerful witch, a kingdom of talking animals who are so afraid of her they don't even mention her name, and one random lion stops her; even with the explanation of the Deep Magic, the whole thing about him coming back from the dead just seemed a bit "deuce ex maquina" (though I didn't know that expression back then). Then comes Voyage, when he says he's in our world too - which had me thinking how badly a talking lion would be treated in our world (thinking of circuses and stuff like that). Even after I came to Jesus, it was years before I ever learned what symbolism was or how people (and not just Lewis) use stories to communicate messages that are supposed to mean something to us beyond the story. Now going through the books again, I can't help but see it everywhere, and I'm loving that, but I can't really call Aslan my all-time favorite because, for most of my life as a Narnia fan, he wasn't.

But Reepicheep, OMGosh did I like him! Of course as a kid, I just thought he was awesome because he was not afraid to take on a dragon, even though he was just a mouse. He was a swashbuckling adventurer, possibly the smallest creature in Narnia but also one of the bravest. And now many years later, I love his character more than ever! He was a Narnian knight, loyal to King Caspian and with a deep desire to see Aslan's country. He's not without his faults, but IMO that just makes him a more "real" character. So I can't think of any other male character in Narnia that I'd rather call my favorite.

In fact, when I started coming around NarniaWeb last month, and saw all these very Narnian nicknames, I dropped my usual online nickname of the Geek on Skates, to officially join as Geekicheep! That's how much I loved that mouse. :D
