Day 15 – Favorite male character

The natural follow-up would be to pick a Heinlein character, but none of them are actually my favorite. This is partly because true love of a character takes multiple books, and for Heinlein that would leave me looking at Lazarus Long. Who has his points but won more respect than love. The male character I love is Miles Vorkosigan, hero of Lois Bujold's space opera series. He's a combination of brilliance and determination. The latter often lands him in holes it takes even more brilliance to dig him out of. What really makes me love him is his own loves and loyalties, to people and family. Most artfully expressed when he discovered his enemies had made a clone of him as part of an assassination plot . . . and since the clone is a blood relative of course his priority is trying to rescue the clone and set him up with a free life.
