Fellowship of Fantasy ABC Challenge - I

The original post is here.

 

Oh thank goodness, one that's easy. My favorite "I" character is Iathor from Elizabeth McCoy's Lord Alchemist books and stories.

 

This is one of those cases where, although I haven't always liked the books/stories themselves, I adore one of the characters. In Herb-Witch, Iathor didn't seem all that great at first, but he grew on me.

 

I love him for his strong sense of duty and deep awareness of his responsibilities. In a world where nobles emotionally bind people to them with a potion, the dramsman's draught, Iathor never, ever lets himself forget that he could seriously harm those who serve him with just a few careless words.
