Here are a few fictional characters that I identify with.

1. Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy (Pride and Prejudice) - I wrote a whole post dedicated to why I identify with Darcy. The man’s me in a book.

2. Gandalf the Grey (Lord of the Rings) - Gandalf is the voice of wisdom and guidance in the Fellowship, but prefers to leave the actual leading to others such as Aragorn. He prefers to subtly guide from behind the scenes, rather than be in the limelight. However, he’s not afraid to step up to the plate if he’s needed, and do what needs to be done, facing impossible odds like going toe-to-toe with a Balrog. (I say Gandalf the Grey, only because I don’t think that have the age and experience required for Gandalf the White.)

3. Dexter (Dexter’s Laboratory) - Dexter’s just wants to be left alone to do his thing. He’s a genius, and a good kid, but everyone keeps messing with his shit, and it drives him nuts.

4. Rhaegar Targaryen (A Song of Ice and Fire) - Rhaegar is the brother of Danaerys Targaryen. He died during Robert Baratheon’s rebellion, killed by Robert himself, and so does not appear in the show at all (yet, anyway. I’m hoping that they decide to fill in some of the history of Westeros in the show, and feature Rhaegar at some point.)

Aside from Robert, who had a hatred of all Targaryens, whenever anyone spoke of Rhaegar, if was always with fondness and respect. He was well educated, loved to read, excelled at anything he put his mind to, and epitomized the qualities of a true and noble knight.

"He seemed astonished too on finding her alone, and apologized for his intrusion…and after sitting a few minutes longer without saying much to anybody, went away." Volume 2, Chapter 9

It’s like looking in a personality mirror… =P
