September: Secondary Characters

http://thespectacleblog.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/gracelingcoverjpeg.jpg

Secondary characters are often such rich additions to novels. Which of the secondary characters in Graceling - characters other than, say, Katsa, Po, Bitterblue, or Leck - would you most like to know personally? Why?

Or, what secondary characters from other novels would you most like to befriend?

I'd like to know Prince Raffin better (he he).

Secondary characters in other books I'd like to be friends with:

Spencer from SUITE SCARLETT

Rue from HUNGER GAMES

Luna from HP

Bitterblue is my favorite supporting character in Graceling.

Spencer is a great character, Shelf Elf!

If I start listing my favorite supporting characters from novels, I'll be here for days.

I have a booklist at Bildungsroman called Sassy Sidekicks of Children's Literature.
