Holland. He's murderous and cold but there's just something that makes me love him despite all of that. His character develops so much. Victoria has always said that her male characters tend to lean towards Hufflepuff and her female characters are more Slytherin. I feel that Holland is Slytherpuff. There's a side to him thats incredibly caring but he doesn't allow people to see it. Instead he puts on this cold and unconcerned exterior.
I will forever love Jaxon Hall even though he's an awful awful human being. But he's got such style and sophistication. He treats Paige as though she's his property and is all around nasty. Yet I'm still drawn to him, he steals every scene he's in and I end up utterly captivated.
I'm part of a wonderful group on Facebook dedicated to the Red Rising series and the general consensus is that everyone hates Roque. He did some bad things...some very bad things. But he's one of those characters that I look at and all I can think is why? Why did you do that? Things could've been so different for you. I still love him but I mad at him for what he did.
