    All of the original Power Rangers. I believe my reasons should be obvious.

    Louis Wu and Nessus from Larry Niven's Ringworld.
    Reverend Mother Jessica Atriedes from Frank Herbert's Dune.
    R. Daneel Olivaw and Hari Seldon from Isaac Asimov's Foundation series.

    All are sentients with unique views of the workings of the universe.

    Would be a nice tea party.

    Invitee number six would be Rory from Gilmore Girls, as she'd also be fun to talk to.

    Most of my favorite characters are demented in some way or another and would make for awkward conversation.

    Tyrion Lannister, Cheranadine Zekalwe, Roland Deschain, Arthur Dent and Faith Lehane.

    There ought to be an interesting conversation or two in there. (Darth Vader would be invited, but I'm saving him for a one-on-one meeting).

    It would probably help if people would identify the books these characters come from. We haven't all read the same things. Who, for example, is "Anomander Rake"?
