Oops, when I read my list to my husband, he said, "What about Rosella?" How could I have forgotten since she is in my all time favorite game, "King's Quest 4, The Perils of Rosella"? I still can see her in her cute peasant dress with those 2 golden braids down her back which would swing side to side as she walked north to the next screen.

Finest and best character--- It has to be Many in the Grim Fandango. No other character comes close in my book. He is a slam dunk
Jim
p.s. The other four are a hazy collection of also runs.
