Indeed.  Along a similar line, Aurang is my favorite character.

I will say i always like and anticipate the birds sections.
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

Yeah, always so chock full of tasty morsels of information.

The part where he lists all his "exploits" is great too.

I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

When it comes to revelations, my hunger knows no bounds,  ;)

To indulge it is to breed it.  To punish it is to feed it.  Madness knows no bridle but the knife.

Ha, I think you are right.

Cnaiur urs Skiotha, the Most Violent of All Men. Who'd have thought such a touching and sometimes horrifying personal story would come from a barbarian chief archetype. Cleric is pretty awesome too.

Cnaiur is my favorite too.  Maybe its the nonconformist in me but I loved and totally related with how Cnaiur always felt outside even when being right at the heart of everything Scylvendi (in his rold as the Chief).  I often have felt that way at church, in the Army, in high school...etc. 

And you know, hes a brilliant badass with some of the best speeches and quotes of any series Ive ever come across.  So theres that

I know semi-recently we were discussing this in Quorum and I think you've hit the crux of the matter, geoint. So many of us come from different "narrow-minded" ideologies, though few likely as brutal as Cnaiur's, and we can empathize with the social isolation that comes with "seeing more" than your "tribe" (whatever shape that community forms).

Cnaiur is a great character.  It's too much to type, but in the cast Geoffbro and I got a chance to speak about how crazy he is, strolling about spitting on walls with an open throat wound, wondering why no one will look at him, and assuming it's cause everyone knows he is a "faggot/weeper" when it's just everyone is absolutely terrified of him. however he is as deep as he is crazy. Smart, isolated, a tribe of one.

Mimara is slowly moving up for me though.

From PON Cnaiur,Conphas and Kellhus.Very interesting and entertaining POV'S IMO.I also like Akka,Iyokus and the Synthese/Aurang.

From TAE Sorweel,Mimara and Cleric.All of Kellhus's children are interesting,especially Inrilatas!

Achamian - for some reason I really do like this flawed person a lot.

Proyas - I find people struggling with faith very interesting, and he may also be the most objectively "decent" person in the story.
