Susan Ivanova - Babylon 5
When I was younger, I was always looking for female characters who represented the woman I thought I could be. That woman wasn't necessarily beautiful, and she wasn't necessarily popular with men, but she was blunt, honest, and in charge -- and she was probably a little baffled by emotions. Susan Ivanova fit that mold. She had all the characteristics I loved in male characters, except in a body that looked like mine. Babylon 5 and I parted ways when I got to high school and my favorite characters left the show, but I do still love Susan.
