Fictional Character Dinner Party

My post yesterday had me thinking about all of the wonderful characters from novels I've read over the years and what it would be like to met some of them (if it were possible) in real life.

I found the following characters to be interesting, different, likeable, unique, intriguing and/or simply fun. 

1) Hercule Poirot, the Belgium detective found in several of Agatha Christie's novels.

2) Miss Marple from Agatha Christie's novels and short stories.

3) Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser & James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser from Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. I found them both to be fun and interesting characters. Jamie is sexier than hell!

4) Susan "Stargirl" Caraway from Jerry Spinelli's novel Stargirl. I liked her nonconformist attitude and individuality!!

5) Behemoth from Mikhail Bulgalov's The Master & Margarita. Who wouldn't want to meet an enormous black cat, capable of standing on two legs and talking as well as his love of chess, vodka and pistols? Talk about unique characters!

6) Captain Nemo from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea... The best antiheroes ever!

7) Great-Uncle Magnus Pringle from Ultra-Violet Catastrophe! Or, The Unexpected Walk with Great-Uncle Magnus Pringle by Margaret Mahy. Wouldn't it have been to have him as an uncle?

8) Chiyo/Nitta Sayuri the lead character from Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden... I enjoyed reading this book and liked the leading character.

9) Samuel Hamilton and Lee from Steinbeck's East of Eden. Both were my favorite characters from East of Eden.
Which fictional characters do you think would make interesting dinner guests at a dinner party?
