Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Minor Characters
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish which I am taking part in.
There are plenty definitions out there of what a minor character is, but I have decided to just assume that if it isn't one of the few "major" protagonists or antagonists in a novel then they are fair game for this listing. Anyway, please read over my list below and post any comments, either agreeing or disagreeing with my choices.
Neville Longbottom - Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling
Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibbler - Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett
Apologies for my lack of variation and originality but I have another Discworld character here. Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibbler introduces us the world of commerce in Discworld and his antics always bring a smile to my face.
Otho - Deverry Cycle by Katherine Kerr
This grumpy, miserable dwarf popped up at various times throughout the series and whilst he tried to hide it, his heart was always in the right place.
