Fictional Mentors

My favorite fictional character "mentors", and the list may not be complete, are: Sherlock Holmes, Malcolm Reynolds, Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Crocodile Dundee, Captain Jack Sparrow, and Paladin. (If I think of more, I'll add them- sneak them into the line-up- later.)

Those are the characters I would most like to "be like" in some major way. None of them are perfect, and I would prefer to gain their good qualities while avoiding their flaws. Of course, I already have plenty of flaws of my own; perhaps theirs wouldn't be much worse.

I'm not sure what that says about me other than that it's probably silly of me to have "favorite fictional character mentors" at all.



  1. As much as I like that movie (which I still like better than the book), I have trouble with V himself. I can't get past what he did to Evie, even if in the end she appreciated it (I suppose). But, as I said, all the characters have flaws. Some steal, most will occasionally initiate force. So perhaps I should give V more credit. He is very inspiring.

    I have tried to think of more and V is the first one I would even consider including.
