- Dean Thomas
- Cyrus Vandergelt
This week’s Top 5 Wednesday is all about favorite minor characters in fiction. These aren’t the MCs or even side characters. They pop up infrequently in their respective stories but still found a way into my heart. First up is Dean Thomas from the HP series. While he was meant to have a larger role in the story, Dean’s appearances are always poignant. Plus he’s a soccer fan. How could I not love him? Then there’s Losen from Shades of Magic. The protege of Kisimyr is barely mentioned in the novels but somehow I just want to know more about him. Vikram, the Rajput from The Wrath & The Dawn, is powerful, reliable, and easily found his way into my faves while reading. Mentioned throughout the Off-Campus series, Fitzy is a hockey playing nerd who immediately caught my eye. Now he’s getting his own book in the new Briar Hockey series! Last but certainly not least is the lovable Cyrus Vandergelt from the Amelia Peabody series. He pops up in many of the Emersons adventures and ends up being a loyal friend through the years.
So, who are some of your favorite minor characters? Is it hard to zero in on specific people?
Let me know in the comments below!
