Katiebird’s Favorite secondary characters:

Deacon St. Delphi from the Covenant series

Yeah, I’m great. Nothing like witnessing a death match between gods when I’m trying to get some Cheetos. Deity

Daniel Wesley from the Hopeless series

I call her Val because it’s short for Valium and I always tell her she needs to take that shit by the bucketful. I wasn’t lying when I said she was fucking crazy. Losing Hope

Luc from Obsession and the Lux series

Some people think that I’m paranoid, but I like to say I’m realistically prepared for when the shit hits the fan.” Obsession

Kenji Kishimoto from the Shatter me series

“Yeah, bro. You are moody. It’s always ‘Shut up, Kenji.’ ‘Go to sleep, Kenji.’ ‘No one wants to see you naked, Kenji.’ When I know for a fact that there are thousands of people who would love to see me naked—” Unravel Me

Jackal from the Blood of Eden series

– “Don’t ask me, I’m not a psychotic maniac.” He paused. “Well, not as much of a psychotic maniac.” The Eternity Cure

Julie from The Weight of Words series

Aubrey, darling, I don’t chase. I replace. I’m letting him do the chasing. The Weight of Words

Kelsey from the Losing It series

“SERIOUSLY? Is it because of Jesus? Are you, like, saving yourself for him?” Losing It

Magnus Bane from The Infernal Devices and Mortal Instrument Series

I was alive when the Dead Sea was just a lake that was feeling a little poorly. City of Ashes

Zuzana from Daughter of Smoke and Bones series 

Once you know magic is real, it’s really hard to remember what it was like not to know. It’s kind of like trying to see how you look with your eyes closed. Night of Cake & Puppets

Tina’s Favorite secondary characters:

Prof Picton from Gabriel’s Redemption by Sylvain Reynard

“…Christa Peterson couldn’t catch his eye if she were naked, holding the original manuscript of The Decameron and a case of beer.” Gabriel’s Redemption

Sarah from The Last Hour by Charles Sheehan-Miles

“No shit. I can’t wait until your mother and mine meet up. I wonder if we can get body armor for everyone else.” The Last Hour

“You may not see every single piece of the puzzle that creates your life — you may not see every move the grand chess player makes — but know, He is in complete control of the game board.” Ruin
