Default Who is your favorite character from the Horus Heresy series?

Heya,

So, who is your favorite character from the Horus Heresy series, and why?

Mine is Saul Tarvitz, I love his character as a decent soldier/astartes who stands by morals and his decisions, to me, he would seem to be the friend you've always wanted. When I finished Galaxy in Flames I almost cried at the ending.

To Saul Tarvitz!

I haven't actually read Galaxy in Flames yet, but did you just give away part of the ending?

No, no it wasn't a spoiler, I just mentioned how I thought the ending was good, and how I got upset, but I could tell you the ending if you want? :funny: :P

Hey, no stealing Tarvitz, Tarvitz is my favourite character and noone else can have him (grrrrr)

Yeah, he is great, In my opinion representing the best possible of aspects of the Adeptus Astartes. I even converted a model for him based on the Horus Heresy Card

Actually, the Horus Heresy series really got me interested in Lucius. Though I can't say who my favorite character is... Hmm I like whats his name, the Titan moderati not Titus but the other guy. He's an interesing character.

The characters that i like reading about the most are actually the bad guys. Sure you like the good guys more and hope they win, but the best ones to read about are marines like Lucius, Eidolon (as you constantly hope someone drops something really catastophically heavy on him), Abaddon and Erebus.

As to the books themselves, Torgaddon rules ;D But I've always liked Magnus and of course Dorn so I guess they can share the favorite character place.
Although I've read only the two first books and thus don't know anything about what might be (or have been) next.

I gotta say I found Tarvitz a rather dull and lackluster character. He was too much of a goody twoshoes for my tastes, though I'm glad there was finally a marine character who couldn't slaughter everything that walked.
