Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

What? the guy was such a bastard. You remember when he told Conn about how his first love went and got married, telling him only cause he knew it would hurt him more than his injuries from the bear.

From there i disliked the guy and he gave me more and more reason as the time went on.

Dont tell me you like the guy? Why cause you hate Connavar?

Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

I think some of the best characters to come out of his books are from Lion of Macedon. The minor characters like Mothac, Nicanor and Bernios are all among my favourites

I know why he created him. Braefar was made so cowardly and weak so well that you cant help to dislike him. DG did a great job there, its not often you found a character that annoys you so much.

By worst i thought meant character i didnt like cause and not a character that was made badly.

Heck i liked the so called bad guys more than Braefar in Rigante.

Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

How can everyone hate Sigarni. She's your typical passive/aggressive woman trying to do right by her people who has no idea where to start? Of course she doesn't take to leading her people, she's more or less just a ranger that finds out she's a royal. I loved her and how she killed the scum in the prison. LOVED her. This is the book that made me love david gemmell!

umm too many favorites but i guess least favorite book would be Echos of the Great Song, the character's just didn't have the staying effect that his other books had with me.

Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

I think what made Sigarni so difficult to like was the fact that she was "lose". It goes back to the whole thing that Sieben mentioned to Druss about how the women were meant to be. Its an subconsious thing I think. On recent rereads of the series Ive come to not think to badly on her. Its a weird thing but I think that IM coming to rate Hawk Eternal series higher than Echoes (ducks and runs for cover.)

Cool Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

so many good charcters! i'm probably going to list lots!!

Waylander is my fave! I think that was the first Gemmell book i read. I was so sad with Hero in the Shadows! Yu Yu was also cool!
Next is Shannow. i feel sorry for him, but i love him. I know this sounds wierd, and my dad laughs at it, but he reminds me of my dad .
Con is ok. but how can you not feel sorry for Braefar? Each to their own, but i cant help but pity him.
Druss is a fave too! DRUSS!
Winter Warriors rocked! I love Bison!
And Jerak, aka MorningStar. He is cool. Mum cant stand him or Owen though.
And Skilgannon! I almost forgot Skilgannon.


I'm sorry, but if i mention all the Characters i love, im going to be here forever. But ill hang around, and yell at people who got it 'wrong' . lol. i've think there's around 7 books i havent read yet...i cant find them! So, i cant make a comment on Sigarni (did i spell it right? ive read the second hawk eternal book though.), or Knights of Dark Reknown, Dark Moon, StormRider.

Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

Shannow is my new fav DG character. He is such a tragic hero that you feel sorry for him alot of the times. He is alittle nuts in the head too, he is very moral despite he kills when he has to.

Ihave changed my mind now that i have read more of him, i dont think any of DG are worst, they are all great in thier own way.


Braefar i never felt pity for. He enjoyed too much at hurting his own brother who showed him nothing but love even after what Braefar did to him.

That is why i pity him. He imagined people looking down on him, slighting him, hating him, feelings that were never there. Dopey bastard.
