Nowth

It's not that I hate the character himself, just that I'm not so sure what I think about the reasons he's so loved by some. A refusal or inability to imagine that things could be different and not actually worse for it, a strong conviction that you're right no matter what... those are not attractive qualities to me. So when he does reach me it's when there's more to him than this (and I'm aware that there is) - it's in spite of his flint-ness rather than because of it. (Though if it were a bit more of a weakness I'd probably find that endearing again...)
