Do you have a character that’s a guilty pleasure?

For me, it’s definitely Izus Torrossian, the “Man” in the current pieces I’m putting up. I specifically limit the amount that I write with him, because I know it would all devolve into nerdish adolation. He’s also a little bit of a Mary Sue, which I generally hate in fiction. He’s the main antagonist in Lodestar [but not villain, please note] – I’ve tried to make his sporadic appearances memorable, but brief.

But still part of me just wants him to snap his fingers and set a continent ablaze, then hang ten off the nose of an allosaurus while sipping a cup of oolong with one pinky held up. And then pull out his double-necked keytar and play Queen covers for a while.

You got anybody like that in your fiction?
