Those Quirky Characters

I love characters that are a little quirky. I'm not talking about the ones with flaws. I like the ones that have that have those strange ways about them. Favorite quirky characters? The entire cast of Ally McBeal. I never missed an episode. I go back and watch a few on Netflix every once in awhile. I loved Ally's clumsiness and horribly embarrassing situations, Fish and his obsession with turkey waddles, and Cage, a seemingly mild mannered nerd, but a beast in the courtroom.

Favorite quirky character in a book? Simi, a demon in Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark hunter series. Although she's thousands of years old, in demon years, she's a teenager. Spoiled rotten, but so funny and cute, you can't help but love her. She doesn't understand metaphors, so all who come in contact with her have to say exactly what they mean. She also likes to eat bad guys with tons of barbecue sauce. She keeps a few bottles in her purse just in case.

Who are your favorite quirky characters?


  1. Whether I want to be or not, I'm a Big Bang Theory addict. They're all quirky, to put it mildly. :-)

  2. Like Liz, love the Big Bang gang. Also Janet Evonovich's characters all have interesting quirks.
