Leo Valdez (25) vs. Raven (40)

Leo Valdez
Fandom: Percy Jackson

Leo is good-natured, easygoing, upbeat, energetic, funny, and loves to tell jokes, even if they aren’t funny. Leo is genuinely intelligent and honest, and cares about his friends and family. He sometimes doesn’t think before reacting and he enjoys pulling pranks on people, especially those who he doesn’t like. Despite his happy-go-lucky attitude, Leo is emotionally scarred from the death of his mother and is crushed by guilt as he indirectly caused her death. Leo has been shown to have a serious side, which happens when he is angered by someone or when the situation calls for it. He is also seen building small bits of machinery and equipment and is very skilled and serious about his work.

He is also known to frequently fall in love with any beautiful girl as long as she is completely out of his league, such as in the case of Khione and Thalia.  It is possible that this characteristic comes from his father, Hephaestus.

Near the end of The Lost Hero, he starts to let go of the pain of his mother’s death and learns that his pyrokinesis is a gift and tool, not a curse. He also decides to stop running from his past and he starts opening up to his friends more. As of The House of Hades, After Leo Visiting Calypso, Leo Has gotten more mature,and heartbroken, but still tells Jokes.

While Leo’s fatal flaw has not been revealed, however he shows feelings of inferiority. – Camp Half Blood wikia

Fandom: Delirium

Raven is a female version of Alex in many ways. She is also a fighter and has cause to hate the society. She is a leader and since she escaped to the wild with baby Blue she has been a caretaker. To leave her family and her life behind in the society, to go on the run in the wilds with a child that was not her own, is a selfless thing to do! She saved Blue’s life, and with Ravens care she lived 8years in the wild. Raven presents herself in a cold, hard, leader manner, but deep down she is just as lost and vulnerable, as well as horrible memories she has of the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father but she feels she has to stay strong for everyone else. For her acts of selflessness, and giving and caring, is why I like her!

hbarLuna Lovegood (26) vs. Teresa Agnes (39)

Luna Lovegood
Fandom: Harry Potter

Luna was an extremely quirky girl with a serene disposition and many eccentric beliefs and qualities. She was a complete nonconformist; she lacked self-consciousness and wasn’t afraid to show who she truly was. Luna was also highly intelligent and unusually perceptive, having been sorted into Ravenclaw, “where those of wit and learning will always find their kind.” Although many thought Luna was bizarre, Harry, Hermione, Ron, Neville, Ginny, Dean Thomas and Ollivander eventually became very fond of her.

Her demeanour and voice were often distant and dreamy, and she would drift away from a conversation she did not find interesting. She had an uncanny way of making others uncomfortable by being bluntly honest — a “knack for embarrassing honesty” according to Harry. She was completely unflappable and rarely seemed anxious or under stress, even under difficult circumstances such as being a prisoner of Malfoy Manor. Luna was very good at comforting others, such as when she comforted Harry Potter after his godfather’s death, and Mr. Ollivander while they were imprisoned together.

Luna was often the subject of ridicule and had difficulty making friends. Other students gave her the nickname of “Loony Lovegood” and even stole and hid her things. She was unfazed by this, though, and instead chose to be nonjudgmental and accepting of the others around her. She once said that she does not like dancing much, though she did dance some at the wedding of Bill and Fleur. Luna seems to have enjoyed artistic pursuits in her free time; her house was filled with various things that she painted.

Luna was very loyal to the few friends she had, supporting Harry even when he was outlawed by the Ministry of Magic. She also displayed admirable bravery during both the Battle of the Department of Mysteries and the Battle of Hogwarts. – Harry Potter wikia

Teresa Agnes
Fandom: The Maze Runner

Being the only girl in the Glade, Teresa had to be pretty tough to deal with not only all of the boys, but being the one who triggered the Ending. Even though she was vulnerable lying in a coma for a while when she first entered the Glade, her only true weaknesses are her faith in WICKED and her memories of Thomas and herself before the trials. Teresa has proven to be an excellent fighter and can hold her ground against both Gladers and Grievers alike.

Readers may have a love/hate relationship with Teresa, but she was a strong, badass woman who always stuck by her beliefs. Teresa put up with a lot from the boys, but still went on to become the female leader of the Gladers. She isn’t afraid to get herself in some sticky situations to help a friend and she can hold her own in a fight. Not to mention that she’s the other half of Thomas’ telepathic pairing and a possible love interest, making her one of the most intriguing characters in the series.

Alina Starkov (27) vs. Aragorn (38)

Alina Starkov
Fandom: Shadow and Bone

Alina Starkov is shown to be a simple, less-than-pretty, regular soldier without any sort of special powers.  She often conveys that much about herself, so comes across as lacking confidence, but still compassionate and grateful for any help she receives.  

She is often wary of people, and is too skeptical of her own powers even when she realizes the strength of her powers.  But when forced to fight, she finds the will to do so, at the sake of her own life at times.  

She comes to understand her power more and more throughout the book, but doesn’t let it get to her head.  

Fandom: Lord of the Rings

Aragorn possessed Elven wisdom due to his childhood in Rivendell with Elrond and the foresight of the Dúnedain. He was also a skilled healer, notably with the plant Athelas (also known as Kingsfoil). He was also a mighty warrior and an unmatched commander. Due to his position as Isildur’s heir, Aragorn has impressive powers for a Man; he forced Sauron to let him use the Palantír of Orthanc freely (although this was in part due to the fact that as the descendant of Elendil, Aragorn was the true owner of the seeing-stones).

Though there is no indication of his ever doubting his role and destiny as the future king of the Reunited Kingdom and one of the leaders of the war against Sauron, he was not immune to self-doubt, as he doubted the wisdom of his decisions while leading the Fellowship after the loss of Gandalf in Moria, and blamed himself for many of their subsequent misfortunes.

On one occasion, his pride (or reverence for his heritage) led to complications, as he refused to disarm and leave his sword Andúril (a priceless heirloom of Númenor and one of the weapons which slew Sauron) at the door of Edoras, as Théoden had required, and only did so after Gandalf left his own sword (also of high lineage) behind. Even so, he swore that death would come to anyone else who touched it (whether by his own hand or by some magic, it is left unsaid). – LotR wikia

hbarDavid (28) vs. Tess (37)

Fandom: Shadow and Bone

David first appears in Shadow and Bone when Genya takes Alina Starkov to the workshops to pick up her glass discs.  He comes across as very quiet and not very personable.  He is either unaware of Genya’s crush or uninterested because he never acknowledges her presence. David is a skilled Fabrikator and the Darkling uses him to create the collar for Alina out of the Morozova stag’s antlers.

Later, it turns out that David feels bad about creating the collar, and Alina tells Genya to let him know she forgives him.  He also ends up siding with Alina and it is revealed that he has more compassion than he originally let on. – Shadow and Bone wikia

Fandom: Legend

Tess’s spunk comes across fairly early in the book, and no doubt considering that she’s had to live pretty much on her own before she joined up with Day at the age of 10.  Despite having Day help take care of her, she’s pretty self-sufficient, and is very loyal to Day, to the point that she doesn’t welcome other people to join them.  When separated from Day, she finds a way to another group and integrates herself with them quite well.  She’s a survivor.
