Your less favourite characters posted 17 June 2005 in The Darkness That Comes BeforeYour less favourite characters by Randal, Auditor

Again, two questions here.

Which character do you dislike reading about?

And, Which character do you dislike as a 'person'?

Anyway, the answer to both these questions is the same for me in this case. The old queen-mother. Or should that be empress-mother?

She's utterly vile and disgusting, albeit in a more human way than the Consult. Which only serves to make her even more disturbing.

And she's one of the few characters in literature who disgust me to the point of not wanting to read about them either.

At least she's a radical reversal of the mother-figure stereotype. view post
