Ten Five Most Memorable Secondary Characters
Urgh. I was struggling to think of characters for this one. Therefore… Top Five.
5) Henry Fussy from Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. A little boy who is Fern’s ‘love’ interest. He is only referred to as is full name, Henry Fussy.
4) Mrs. Korjev and Mrs. Ling from A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore. The two babysitters of little Sophie. Middle-aged women, Russian and Chinese, basically the stereotypes of their countries, but it’s so funny.
3) Admiral Archer’s prized Beagle from Star Trek by Alan Dean Foster Yes, a dog is on the list. Hush now. In the media tie-in novel of the Star Trek 2009 movie, we finally get to see what happened to the dog. Oh, Scotty.
2) Archie Aymslowe from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling. Who is Archie you might ask? Archie was the man at the World Cup who was more comfortable wearing a Muggle woman’s dress because “I like a healthy breeze around my privates…” and Hermione couldn’t help but blush and giggle. Thank you Archie for quite a memorable moment that has always stuck with me.
1) Kinsey Hummingbird from Lost Souls by Poppy Z Brite. Bartender & owner of ‘The Sacred Yew’ in Missing Mile, he took the loner kids under his wing. I loved Kinsey. He was like an odd sort of father figure.
