Jace Wayland (9) vs. Sturmhond (17)

Jace Wayland
Book Series, Fandom:  The Mortal Instruments, Shadowhunter Chronicles

The archetypal Byronic hero, Jace gives the impression of holding most people in disdain but is quite chivalrous toward women. He is extremely arrogant, believing himself to be “the best Shadowhunter to ever live,” and to be above others. He can also be very sarcastic if he wants to be and is shown to be very confident about his looks and has dated a lot of girls, with Aline stating that he “gets around.” His charisma, good looks, and charm have made him quite the ladies’ man, and he is implied to be somewhat promiscuous among girls. Despite his luck with girls, he never forms emotional attachments for more than a brief amount of time, if at all, because of the way Valentine had taught him that “to love is to destroy.” And that love, therefore, makes a person weak. He is also known to be a bit self-centered; however, when it comes to battle and justice, he is willing to make sacrifices and the right decisions.

The only people Jace has any feelings of love for before meeting Clary were the Lightwoods. Jace shares the snobbish attitude toward mundanes and Downworlders that the Lightwoods have in common with Valentine, though he lacks their extremist tendencies. Beneath Jace’s flippant exterior lies a soul in constant torment. He is filled with a deep-seated rage that he keeps in check most of the time and which he channels into fighting and slaying demons and also, sometimes, his sarcastic and nasty remarks. Jace has also been shown to be a very passionate individual, and when he falls in love with Clary, he does so on a very deep and passionate level and does everything in his power to protect her from harm. – Shadowhunters’ wikia

Book Series, Fandom: Shadow and Bone, Grisha Trilogy

Sturmhond is the young, quick witted “privateer” who joins the dangerous quest for the second amplifier, the Sea Whip. His allegiances are hidden under a sly smile and seemingly never-ending charm, but the secret he’s hiding beneath that facade continues to make him intense and fascinating.

hbarWill Herondale (14) vs. Albus Dumbledore (22)

Will Herondale
Book Series, Fandom: The Infernal Devices, Shadowhunter Chronicles

He comes across as rude and arrogant, always utilizing his quick wit and sarcasm. He is aware of his good looks and uses it to get his way. This is in fact a front that he uses to keep everyone at arms-length. He is actually caring and would risk his life for the people he loves. He is also self-sacrificing.

Will reads extensively and has a perfect memory. He can find a quote for almost any situation and often makes his own (very bad, although sometimes purposefully) poetry.- Shadowhunters wikia

Albus Dumbledore
Book Series, Fandom: Harry Potter, Harry Potter Universe

Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, Order of Merlin, First Class, Grand Sorcerer was the Transfiguration Professor, and later Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Professor Dumbledore also served as Supreme Mugwump of the International Confederation of Wizards and Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot. His early losses greatly affected him early on, even at his death, but in turn made him a better person. Albus Dumbledore was considered to be the most powerful wizard of his time. He was most famous for his defeat of Gellert Grindelwald, the discovery of the twelve uses of dragon’s blood, and his work on alchemy with Nicolas Flamel. It was through Dumbledore that resistance to the rise of Lord Voldemort was formed, as it was he who founded and led both the first and second Order of the Phoenix. He was the wielder and the master of the Elder Wand from 1945 until 1997 and considered by many as the greatest Headmaster to ever grace Hogwarts. As he was about to die by a cursed ring, he planned his own death with Severus Snape. He was killed by Snape during the Battle of the Astronomy Tower. Though he was no longer alive at the time, it was through Dumbledore’s machinations that Voldemort was ultimately defeated and peace restored to the wizarding world. He is the only Headmaster that was laid to rest at Hogwarts. Albus Dumbledore’s portrait still remains at Hogwarts. – Harry Potter wikia

Percy Jackson (7) vs. Aragorn (38)

Percy Jackson
Book Series, Fandom: Percy Jackson, Percy Jackson Universe

Percy is a brave, spirited natural leader, and is willing to risk his life to save friends, family, strangers, and sometimes even enemies. He has a sarcastic and smart sense of humor, a laid-back demeanor, and has earned the respect of all the Olympians, including Artemis (who strictly dislikes men), Dionysus (who hates most heroes because of what happened with Ariadne), and Hades (who generally hates people). He also earned the trust and respect of the Romans of Camp Jupiter (who don’t usually trust Greeks). Percy remains true and never goes back on his word. However, he is definitely not perfect. Percy is somewhat short-tempered, and thus has trouble controlling his anger (such as when he sees bullying) and tends to do or blurt out things before thinking, no matter the consequences, causing him to get into a lot of trouble. He also feels responsible for everyone and anything which goes wrong.

Annabeth Chase mentions that he is technically smart but seems to act dumb; and is obtuse, meaning he doesn’t always see the obvious even when it is right in front of him, such as people’s feelings and what they are trying to see indirectly. Despite this he is perceptive when he wants to (or needs to) be; he could tell that Gaea wanted to keep him alive and gambled his life knowing that he was too valuable to Gaea for him to die at that time. Percy can also be derisively sarcastic and moody, and he dislikes being manipulated or forced to obey. 

Percy’s fatal flaw is excessive personal loyalty: he would risk the world and even his own life to save a loved one or even a stranger according to Athena. – Camp Half Blood wikia

Book Series, Fandom: The Lord of the Rings, Middle-Earth Chronicles

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

hbarHermione Granger (4) vs. Ron Weasley (32)

Hermione Granger
Book Series, Fandom: Harry Potter, Harry Potter Universe

Hermione was noted for being extremely intelligent and hard-working…   Unlike most wizards who depended solely on their magical ability, Hermione readily relied on logic. Although this often helped her cleverly deduce information that many others missed… Hermione’s emphasis on logic also made her sceptical about accepting anything without proof, as opposed to Harry who would come to intuitive conclusions.  Hermione was not afraid to stand up to her friends when she thought it was in their best interests, or when she felt they were wrong; she risked angering Harry by getting his Firebolt confiscated because she feared it might be jinxed, and argued with both him and Ginny over his use of the Dark Sectumsempra spell.  Because of her intelligence and her opinionated nature, Hermione had the reputation for being a bossy know-it-all. However, her sometimes abrasive confidence masked her insecurities and great fear of failure, as personified by her Boggart.  She was extremely loyal to her friends, fiercely defending them if they were insulted, and willing to risk her life to help them.  Hermione seemed to have a great deal of compassion, evidenced by her somewhat whimsical purchase of Crookshanks simply because “no one wanted him.”  – Harry Potter wikia

Ron Weasley
Book Series, Fandom: Harry Potter, Harry Potter Universe

Ron was a very funny person, but often emotionally immature, and insensitive. He had a sardonic, wisecracking sense of humour that often brought his friends laughter and relaxation. However, as Hermione Granger and Luna Lovegood pointed out, his humour could occasionally be hurtful, even if unintentionally. During his time searching for Voldemort’s Horcruxes with Harry and Hermione, Ron matured greatly, and even took to leading the trio when Harry temporarily fell into a depressive mood.

Ron’s character was also marked by moodiness and insecurity. He could be argumentative… He also had a fierce temper, which was especially prone to provocation if his loved ones were insulted, and was not above undermining the ways of wizarding kind during confrontations (e.g. he had, on more than one occasion, opted to manually resort to the use of his fists rather than his wand when provoked).

Ron was brave, to a level which would put him on a par with his best friend Harry; he never hesitated to put himself into extremely dangerous situations with his best friends Harry and Hermione, and as shown many times, he would rather die than have someone else he cared about be harmed. He risked his life on many occasions, and his bravery was not unnoticed by his friends. – Harry Potter wikia
