Favourite kind of character

You can say for either reading or writing. I came thinking about this when i was writing though. I love to write tragic characters. Strong tragic characters that may be fooled, may be controlled or just is dealt terrible hands by fate. I never realised that before I wrote some.

favourite to read about.
1. Intelligent ones. (both for protagonist and antagonist)
2. Witty ones.
3. Naked women!

Characters i like to write.
1. Tragic ones.
2. witty/sarcastic.
3.

The character I enjoyed reading most was Ivan Karamazow. Superintelligent, good looking, but still tragic...

Good looking while drinking all the time? I bet he had a big belly

The best character I ever saw in book I think was Ahab from Moby Dick. Ahab is the kind of guy who didnt wasted his dialogues with anything useless...

Charcters that think they're smart, but really are not. You find a lot of them in le roman noir.

You know the scene it's very hum-drum
And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom"...

Alexei Karamazov is my favourite character in any book.

Thinking about the humble type of character I will definitely prefer Prince Myshkin to Alexei without even thinking twice.
