Top Characters Who Would Make Great Leaders


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten Tuesday asks bloggers to blog about their top ten characters who would make great leaders. The following characters are in no particular order.


1. Hermione Granger, from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling - There is no doubt that Hermione Granger would make an excellent leader. She is the brains of the Trio and has the collected coolness during tough situations. She believes in equality for all whether it be for House Elves to Werewolves. I would totally vote for Granger for president!

2. Minerva McGonagall, from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, is a badass no question asked. She is skilled in dueling and is an excellent Transfiguration professor. Peeves hardly listens to anyone besides the Bloody Baron but takes orders from McGonagall. She takes charge of Hogwarts in the absence of Albus Dumbledore.

3. Annabeth Chase, from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians  and The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan, is the daughter of Athena and she is one of the chosen seven. She is head counselor of Cabin 6 and is an exceptional architect. She is well versed in battle and shares the same wisdom as her mother.

4. Tina Goldstein, from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling, is an Auror for MACUSA. She graduated from Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardy as a Thunderbird. Although, Tina follows the rules of the most part, she does what is best based on the situation. She has a good heart and would make fantastic leader.

5. Audrey Rose Wadsworth, from Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco, is the quintessential renaissance woman. She doesn't mind getting her hands dirty and doing things that a man can do. Ms. Wadsworth uncovers mysteries while taking charge in the 1800's, leading the path for ladies to take a stand and to do anything that set their minds to. It's okay to love forensics while donning a dress and drinking a cuppa.

6. Nicolette Lampton, from Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell, is independent and doesn't rely on others for her own happiness. She is smart and is very creative in engineering and other sciences. I love how she embraces her STEM interests. It shows that females can achieve anything.

7. Charlotte Branwell, from The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare, is former head of the London Institute and is the first female Consul in the late 1800's. Charlotte is a naturally born leader who can do anything a male can do. She is independent, responsible and knows when to lay down the law.

8. Sydney Sage from the Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead is intelligent, systematic and is responsible. She was once very closed-minded but has opened up after she eventually falls for someone who she once despised. Ms. Sage's character development has blossomed over the course of 6+ books. Sometimes being in someone else's shoes opens your eyes to things you've missed.

9. Kestrel Trajan, from The Winner's Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski, is a mastermind! Never underestimate her because she always has something up her sleeves. Not only is she a brilliant strategist but she doesn't care about rankings of the Valorians and the Herrani. She believes that the two shouldn't be at war.

  1. I've not met any of these characters, but I do look forward to meeting Audrey and Krestel. I've just recently added 'Ripper' to my shelf, but I've had the Winner trilogy on my shelf for a while now. Hopefully I'll read it soon!! :)

    1. I hope you have a chance to read Stalking Jack the Ripper and Hunting Prince Dracula. Both are excellent novels. The Winner's Trilogy is one of my favorite series! I hope you have a chance to read that one too.
