    I have to say my favorite female FreakAngel is KK, but not for all the same reasons listed above (those are good too though). KK is the one that we've seen more of when it comes to who she is on the inside. I like what I've seen of her beyond the surface, and I think the girl may have more real issues to work beyond than the others have shown. My runners-up line up as follows: Kait, Caz, Miki, Sirkka, Arkady (though Caz and Miki switch places regularly)

    My favorite male FreakAngel is Jack, for much the same reason, though most of the male characters have been given a touch more depth. I just have the feeling that Jack's story and who he is on the inside are both more interesting. Runners-up: Kirk, Connor, Karl, Jack

    Contrary to popular opinion, I think Arkady is the LEAST interesting. She and Luke are my two least favorite. I've seen a thousand and one Arkady-types. I think she has the potential to become a favorite, but I'm never suprised by her, and that's not a good thing. No matter what Arkady does at this point, it gets a shrug out of me, "Yep, that's Arkady, she can do anything..." If she was more about the person on the inside and less about the crazy and the special effects, I could like her more.

    As AngeliQ said, KK is hard not to like, but I find Kait more and more intriguing the more we see of her.
    Caz is a close runner up. Competent and practical - that gets my seal of approval (I am the mechanically incompetent scion of a long line of engineers, so maybe she has a special resonance).

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    For me its JACK. What can I say gun, boat, brooding loner with a bruised heart and soul.

    But we still have one Freak Angel to meet!

    Alice!

    Still Kait. A policewoman with a sword on her weapons rack? A resourceful, violent woman with a penchant for Quincy and impractical midriff.

    Agreeing with ERay! Kait is growing on me more and more.

    Kait's growing on me. I like the fact that she's a cop. That's so cool. And she's a wee bit crazy.

    She loves Quincy and that's good enough to bump her into my top spot. Jack, I still love you but ... you wear a mesh vest. And sort out your problems with Sirkka, already.

    Kait it is.

    There. I Changed My Mind.

    I want to mother Arkady, go out drinking with KK and bed Connor.

    Yea, Luke, have no use for him.

    Connor, Kirk, KK and Jack seem like they'd be cool to hang around with but I suspect I'd spend most of my time hanging out with Caz (we share a practical engineer's perspective) and Alice (a normal human among the 'Angels).

    I like Karl's take on life but I suspect we'd both be too socially self contained to have much to say to each other. Arkady is sweet but would get on my nerves after a while. Kait is intriguing but probably best observed from a distance. Sirkka... well let's not even start with Sirkka.

    If I didn't know about his complete and utter moral douchbaggery I think I could have some interesting philosophical discussions with Luke - assuming he'd deign to converse with an untermensch.

    But my absolute favourite FA is Miki - she's a Doctor, and hence scientific (if we excuse the occasional possible lapse into homoeopathy), she's empathic, strong willed, seems to be something of a voice of maturity and reason among the clan (for a certain value of maturity and reason), and she doesn't take any crap. My kind of gal :)

    "He was a crimefighting genius and he always had hot young chicks on his boat. Quincy's cock was a foot long."

    Oh, but I like Connor as well, if only because he seems to be the straight man of the group, and I've always had an appreciation for the straight man character in comedy and fiction.

    I think I would have to say Karl. In a situation like that, Karl is the one I'd probably end up being, albeit with less clothes and a louder voice (I'm assuming he's pretty mellow in volume).
    Sirkka, too, is someone I could relate to, to be honest. She's obviously on the far end of the spectrum, but I admire a person with so much love in her.

    I love all Freakangels because of their violet eyes. Exept for Luke because (1) he's a rapist and (2) wears no pants.
    My favourite is Connor, so far, because he writes things down and remembers things. He's got something tragic which I adore.
    I think I'll like Mark too, when we finally see him, because he's described as very charismatic.
    As for the women: I wish I could be like KK XD

    Heeey! I frequently wear no pants! Does that make me less of a human being?!
    Granted, I do tend to put on pants when I go outside...
    And I'm not a Freak Angel...
    Or cool.

    I just reread my post and realized I didn't even mention Alice. She's only an honorary member, but she is starting to kick ass.

    @ Magnulus - Our Great Leader has spoken often of pants. And his general dislike of them. Do you REALLY want to be put in Fin Fang Foom's pants? You do not. (Trust me.)

    Nice to see such a range of opinion. (I actually CHANGED MY MIND!) Arkady is the clear front-runner but the point seems to be there is no Right Answer. You like who you like and you know why you like them and even though they're just 'lines on a page' (or a screen), they're still real enough for people to say "I like your style, Dude." (Or in Luke's case, "{Fuck off, twat.")

    And we haven't even seen Mark yet.

    Don't love Kait or you'll be shot dead.
    Sirkka loves everyone.
    Love to hate Luke.

    > Who's your favourite?

    Like best as a person -- Kady:

    * She says 'hello' to little fishes
    * The children are overjoyed to see her, and she pushes them on their round-about
    * She's enthusiastic, in company and alone: ringing the bell, and looking out from high places
    * She's hard-working and independent
    * She forgives Luke, gives him another chance, overcomes his violence by sharing her own experience with him, saves him from being killed for his sins (or at least, that's what she did last time she met him, at his ex-girl-friend's place)

    > Who would be your mate, who would you like to hang out with?

    The engineer or the doctor are doing important jobs, but if they can do without my help I wouldn't mind offering to expand the strawberry garden.

    > Which character attracts you the most?

    Kait seems like a low-maintenance, self-reliant, undemanding, athletic kind of person.

    > On the other hand, who don't you like?

    The guy in the watch-tower, who does without company, and who aggressed Luke.

    I think I would be hanging out with: Kirk, Karl and Caz. They remind me of people I hang around with already.

    The characters I like to see the antics of: Arkady, KK and Kait. Cool to watch, not sure if I would want to be in the middle of them.

    I am the fence about: Connor, Miki, Jack and Sirrka. I'd like to see more of Connor and Miki before I figure them out. Jack and Sirrka's relationship an interesting reflection of the couple who is always on and off with a psychic twist, however both parties would likely annoy the shit out of me IRL.

    Who I dislike- Luke and Alice. Luke is obvious, but I disliked him before for being a mooch. I don't like Alice for sheer personal reasons. Namely that she reminds me of one of the only people I truly hate. This is something that may change over time as the series progresses.

    Kady... I liked her more in the beginning I think. It was when you got the sense that despite being... off... She was still a reasonable and mature adult. It seemed like partway through she gained a more childlike persona.

    I like Kait the most. KK a bit behind, although her character isn't as well explored, I want to see how she manages to keep the group together and whatnot.

    For the males. It'd be Carl, I like his relatively simple life and I feel a weird sympathy with Conner mainly because of the whole disliking fights but lacking spine thing. Which uncomfortably reminds me of myself.
