Peter. He has always been my favorite male character in Narnia :D . I can't say precisely why. He is most certainly not like me in any way.

Peter in a strong character, who can make decisions in difficult situations and stand by them. When he's wrong, he apologizes immediately. The meeting between Aslan and Peter in PC is a great example of that. He's also very impressive in LB, I don't think he would be my favorite character without his appearance in that book, for that somehow completes his character.

This was a really hard decision, but I’d have to say Edmund. I have always loved seeing how he changed from being the little brat who would sell out his family for sweets to being the heroic King Edmund the Just.

I chose Eustace. I know he doesn't start out as the most likable character, he's rude and arrogant and sometimes even downright mean :ymdevil: . In my opinion he was ten times worse than Edmund ever was, even when he betrayed his siblings to Jadis. But he makes such a dramatic change between VDT and SC, his is a story of redemption and hope, if someone like Eustace can change for the better then anyone can.
That's why I'm going to stand by the play world. 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. -Puddleglum

For some reason I empathized more with King Tirian than the other most worthy choices. He is flawed but at the same time he does his best to save Narnia though all his efforts are doomed.

But he does try because he is also noble and brave. His impetuousness gets him in trouble but Aslan is merciful to him in sending Jill and Eustace to free him to make the last stand for the Old Narnia.

Here is a king who knows the entire history of Narnia up to his reign and he is the end of the line. :( He did not ask for this fate but the way Professor Lewis wrote his character, he was the right one to be there at the worst of times.(IMHO) :|

And in the end he does get to interact in the New Narnia with all the characters from the past upon whom he had reflected in the Old Narnia. :)

How do you decide? It was hard to decide between Peter, Shasta, Cor, Caspian, Tirian, and Rillian. I chose Peter because he's someone who's from my world who got to Narnia which is something I've wished I could do ever since I first read the books.

Tough choice - I like each one for a different reason. I think I'll have to go with Peter, though. I've always liked the way he protects his sisters (especially Lucy) and how he LEADS all of Narnia. And besides, Peter's the High King.

I like them all! But as of now, Edmund is my favorite. I used to like Peter, but in PC, he got kind of weird. :(

I originally chose Edmund becuase of his incredible character, his nobility, loyalty, and his wisdom.
Then I had to switch to Eustace. Edmund in my opinion is certainly the BEST male character, but Eustace is my favorite. Everyone can relate to Eustace in one way or another. He is so utterly hateable when he is a prig, so utterly pitiable when a dragon (though the whole time the reader is saying 'ha ha, you deserved it!'), and so utterly likeable when he comes around. He's quite a real character. And of course, he's also one of the funniest in my opinion.

My favorite has always been Tirian. He is valaint and noble and very sweet and courteous to Jill. He is brave and does the right thing even if it means death, and he is not above saying he was in the wrong. And he is the only human in the books that is fully described physically.

HIGH KING PETER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! B-) B-) B-) He showed a lot of stregnth & courage in LWW & so much power & commitment in PC. I think he should just STAY in Narnia & RULE (NOT go back to England). He is the best King EVER!!!!

It was a tie between Caspian and Tirian, so I just chose Caspian, strictly because of the way he reacts to situations in Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
