diogenes
And perhaps the best character of all is Diogenes Dagrepont Bernoulli. He's smarter than Aloysius in so many cunning ways. Time and time again Diogenes was able to save Aloysius, even when Aloysius was bested by the demon ghost or bricked in to die a slow dark lonely death. And he never failed to come to his brother's mind every time he was summoned at will. Evil yes, but an intentionally or unintentionally victim and by-product of his elder sibling's cold and cruel arrogance. I dont blame him for turning out to be who he was and engineering the 'terrible crime'. Especially when in his earlier days, he looked up to his older brother. And he was the one who got to Pendergast's ward's loins first when the man himself didnt even have the courage to reveal his feelings for her.


Or perhaps the smartest of all is Pendergast's ward. She was able to sample one brother and then captivated the other.

The Hippo cant help liking Diogenes better than the rest. Especially when he was better at Latin than Aloysius (she's a big sucker for latin). Pity the authors had this fascinating super intelligent character fall into a volcano. But is he dead? Perhaps not.

The Hippo is addicted. What girl wouldnt fall for a super wealthy tall thin eccentric aristocrat who spoke with a mellifluous delta accent with ineffable southern politeness, a well learned polyglot, with dual doctorships, and fought with preternatural abilities, but at the same time arrogant and a show off? shouldnt have picked up the Book of the Dead. And now she cant stop reading.

pendergast
Pendergast is the only series that the Hippo couldnt decide which character she likes better. Although Aloysius was the super fantasy man, more than James Bond and Christian Grey, and Holmes, or perhaps all 3 combined, Vincent was the one who stole my heart. Complete opposite of Pendergast's character, sorta like Watson to Holmes, Vincent was a down to earth sweetie, tough cop with integrity and a good heart (although on one episode one of his heart valve was grazed by a bullet - because of Pendergast - and needed a replacement!). Poor dude got some rough times in the series but ended up (so far) with a woman with 'amazing knockers', well deserved. "My dear Vincent" - Love this character.


Although the series was not without its flaws (and a great many of them), they were well written and highly entertaining, and sure took the Hippo away from her mundane dull and uninteresting world.
