This is the secondary characters interlude section of the survey. Here are parts one and two of the survey, if you missed them.
My rules for deciding who would make the list:
- First, they must be secondary characters. That means no slipping in a protagonist's love interest (so no Jack Dandy or Warner, sadly) or any arch-villains (don't hurt me, Billy Dent!).
- Second, they must be well-rounded. How well-rounded varies by how much page time a character was given.
- Third, while I did look back through my reviews to jog my memory, I didn't need to see any more than a name for why I liked the character to come flooding back.
- Fourth, they have to be cool enough that I would follow them to their own book. Tall order, eh?
With all that in mind, I give you my favorite secondary characters of 2012.

|NOT how I see him, but as close as I can get.|
The largest man I have ever seen steps into the room. Half a head taller than Duval, he is travel stained and road weary and looks like an ogre who has strayed out of a hearth tale. His face bears the roughened texture of pox scars; his nose - broken at least twice - is a lumpen knob. His hair is shaved close to his head, and his eyes are creased in a permanent squint.Seriously beastly. But the Beast is a good man. He treats every woman like a lady unless she proves otherwise, and rather than being ashamed of his looks, he uses them as a test for friendship. I want to be Beast's friend.
My End of the Year Survey will return tomorrow, but until then, answer this question: What secondary characters stole your heart this year?
