    Um the only one I remember the most is Isabella from Northanger Abbey, she was great, i know so many people like her - unfortunately :p She was great at manipulating people, and coming across as doing things for their benefit.

    But I'm not a fan of Jane Austen, i find it very tedious, although i did learn the word 'impropriety' from her, as thats all i remember the characters saying about the slightest thing.

    I most relate to Elizabeth Bennet. When I first read Pride and Prejudice she was the character that I liked straight away.

    The other character I like is Anne Elliot from Persuasion.

    Of all the men in Jane Austen's novels I'm a sucker for Mr Darcy.

    I love Lizzie Bennett (she's just so cool!), but probably my favorite guy character is Henry Tilney from Northanger Abbey. For outrageous people, I like Miss Bates (from Emma), Mrs. Bennett, and Caroline Bingley. :D I'm still yet to read Persuasion, though.

    I relate to both Elinor and Marianne in sense and sensibility strangely!

    I can relate to Willoughby just because of my actions in relation to women.

    In my imagination. Not always a good thing...
    I'm the same as Tori. I relate most to Elizabeth Bennet and Anne Elliot. In different ways of course.

    And Mr. Darcy is my fav gentleman. :love:
