Atticus Finch (from To Kill a Mockingbird)

Atticus Finch (from To Kill a Mockingbird)

You are smart, sharp, and kind. You are a fair and thoughtful parent, a good neighbor, and in absolute control of yourself. You always fight for the underdog, and believe more in following your conscience than in following the crowd.

Aibileen Clark (from The Help)

Aibileen Clark (from The Help)

You are quiet, consistent, and courageous. You are a good example to all around you. You are always willing to help a friend, and care for those unable to care for or defend themselves. You have a soft exterior, but the heart of a tiger.

John Ames III (from Gilead)

John Ames III (from Gilead)

You are educated, reflective, and in love with the world around you. A loyal friend and dedicated spouse. You do have occasional bursts of temper, but are always able to reign yourself in. You want nothing more than to bless the lives of those around you.

John Grady Cole (from All the Pretty Horses)

John Grady Cole (from All the Pretty Horses)

Strong and silent, you have a good sense of justice and morality. You believe in hard work and good adventure, and love above all. Some might see you as a hopeless romantic, even if you are a bit world weary.

Minerva Mirabal (from In the Time of the Butterflies)

Minerva Mirabal (from In the Time of the Butterflies)

Spirited and intensely passionate, you are always ready for a challenge. Injustice and tyranny infuriates you, and you would rather sacrifice your life than watch your family and friends suffer. You are extremely patriotic, and love your country in spite of its many flaws. You also don't take any crap from chauvinistic dictators.

Oskar Schell (from Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close)

Oskar Schell (from Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close)

While highly intelligent, you are also often anxious and depressed. You love adventure and stories, but are often discouraged by reality. Thank goodness for the people around you who love you and help you to make it through the hard times.
