Protagonist

Protagonist - which is your favourite? We all have our favourite protagonist, these are a handful of mine. Being a fan of noir, protagonist Philip Marlowe, the private detective created by Raymond Chandler, is high on my list. He is one of the most inspirational character I have ever read.
