Best Red Queen Characters

The best characters from the Red Queen trilogy. (There will be spoilers from all three books).
The Top Ten
1 Maven Calore

He's honestly just awesome. His character is so complex, and he is seriously one of the most intriguing / mysterious villains. When I read Fare well, I cried because seriously... even though he doesn't even know what love is anymore, he still made the decision to protect his older brother Cal. I really don't know why I always like the villains in all the stories, but Maven is part of the reason why.

Love him! Yes...I know I shouldn't like the evil characters but I just do. In Red Queen he was the shadow of the flame and I felt so bad for him. He was also so kind to Mare. Then at the end of the book when he was reveled as the antagonist I loved him for being so cunning and just for being a genius. Then in Kong's Cage when he was revealing things about his past it made him so complicated. Like he wasn't just this complete ass who murderd his father and tried to kill his brother all so he could have the crown. It showed that he had a kind heart before his mother took all his kindness away. (The thing with Thomas also showed he had a kind heart but whatever) I definitely think he is the best Red Queen character.

He's always been my favourite character because;
1. Although he's kind of evil, it was never his fault, and he was forced to be the 'evil' pawn of Elara
2. He watched both of the people he loved slip out of his grasp
3. He made the choice that would save his brother from eternal sadness even though it came at the expense of his well, image.
Maven... my favourite villain will always be #1!

I LOVE MAVEY...And I still can't comprehend his death so my mind comes up with alternatives and I like them because he's alive in them. He's by far the BEST character in the series. He's flawed, cunning, manipulative but he was also loving and kind; it was because of Elara that he was what he was. I loved him from the instant and loved him till the end and still do...

2 Evangeline Samos

Evangeline is just really, really badass. She is a magnetron, and although she's the stereotypical 'mean girl' for the first two books, in King's Cage she helps Mare escape and shows she can stand up for herself. Her relationship with Elane Haven is also amazing, even though their ending wasn't what it could have been.

Evangeline is just such a complex character. You can see how there are two sides of her because of the pressure that society as well as her own parents inflict upon her through their expectations. Eventually she manages to break through that shell and become her own person.

Favorite character. Though she wasn't the best in the first book, she proved to be a good character in King's Cage. She's strong and talented, and most of all, not entirely heartless.

She's so cool and complex. She goes from doing what her family tells her to making her own decisions.

3 Mare Barrow

Mare is the main protagonist and she has been through a lot of awful things, but she still stays strong. She's an amazing fighter and really stands up for herself, and I love that she chooses herself at the end. She's such a strong individual and a really amazing person.

Just a quick comment: I meant she chooses herself at the end of book 3. I don't know if the same thing happens in book 4 since I haven't finished it yet but if it does that's relevant to both books!

Mare gets her way around situations. Protects the ones she loves and goes after what she wants

4 Shade Barrow

When Shade comes in, he is such a happy, carefree character. He puts a smile on everyone's face, and he's an amazing brother to Mare. He is literally a ray of sunshine, I love him and he deserved a much happier ending than the one he got.

He's so nice to people, even Mare.

5 Diana Farley

She is stern and commanding, and strongly dedicated. She is extremely powerful and I love that about her. She tries her best to hide her emotions, but you can see the pain she feels and you can see how much she loves Shade, and also Mare. She is amazing, I love her.

6 Kilorn Warren

Kilorn is the best friend of Mare, and their friendship is amazing. He is really funny and genuinely a nice person. He may not be a Silver or a Newblood, but he is still a fighter, and he perseveres through so much. He deserves a happy ending.

7 Cameron Cole

Cameron only really made an appearance in the final book, and at the end of Glass Sword, but she was a fierce character who stood up for herself. She never complained, and she was extremely loyal, even though she didn't have to be. She was a strong fighter, but decided she didn't want to use her power too much since it was so deadly, which shows her kindness and her sensitive side.

She was one of the only people brave enough to speak against Mare and point out that Reds as should be equally respected as newbloods and Silvers.

8 Gisa Barrow

Although she wasn't in it much, I love Gisa a lot. Mare sees her in the same way Maven sees Cal - the favourite, and the more talented sibling, but Gisa is an extremely kind person who loves her sister a lot. Cal can be quite big-headed and inconsiderate, and puts his kingdom over his brother and over Mare, but Gisa would clearly never do that. She shows that she fiercely cares for her family, and loves Mare with all her heart.

9 Sara Skonos

Sara cannot speak for a lot of the series, but she is a kind, trustworthy person. Cameron only trusts Sara to train her, and she is one of the few people who doesn't seem scared by Cameron's ability. She cares for everyone, and I am so happy for her now that she is able to talk again.

She's nice. You know what she is thinking even when she can't talk for most of the series.

10 Julian Jacos

I love Julian. He is so knowledgeable and helps to guide Mare through her journey. He is also the one who finds the source of Mare's powers.

The Contenders
11 Tiberias "Cal" Calore VII

I don't no why people like Maven, sorry guys. I know it isn't his fault but still. Did he stop himself in war storm when he was imprisoned? No. I would've voted on Evangeline but just wanted to say

I debated even putting Cal on this list. I found him arrogant and big-headed for much of the series, and the fact that he chose his kingdom over Mare and Maven shows that he doesn't value their feelings as much as his own. However, he is a strong fighter and a loyal person, though sometimes his loyalties are in the wrong place.

He's hot end of story

12 Elane Haven
13 Iris Cygnet

Iris Cygnet is the calmest most calaculated person in these books. Her character is complex, and war storm always worked best when told from her perspective. She is made even more interesting by her messianic faith in her gods.

14 Elara Merandus

Elara Merandus is the most intelligent and ruthless character. She's amazing, and manipulates everyone - Mare, Maven, Cal. And her power is amazing.

15 Ptolemus Samos
16 Lucas Samos

I think he is the best Samos (maybe except Evangeline and Ptolemus) but seriously, he was so nice to Mare and I seriously think he should've gotten a happy ending and it is really annoying how he isn't mentioned in all the other books (mostly) except for Red Queen when he DIED for Mare...
