I really liked Parlin and wish we got more of him.  Instead, he sorta disappeared once he started getting the hots for Jewels or whatever her name was.  Hey, you didn't specify Way of Kings. :P

::Likely accidental spoilers ahead.::

I liked Sigzil a lot.  Really liking most of the survivors of Bridge Four, actually.  I think it's worth noting that they're all similar to Kaladin in a way: they've all hit rock bottom HARD.  Kal's just the only story we saw.

Oh heavens no.  I don't even believe that, myself. 

I just thought it'd be funny if we take this weak character and set him up to be awesome !!! ... but he's still a weak kid with no training and he immediately dies.  And, of course, now that Dalinar is sure of himself and his only problems are external ones, the death of his son would provide an excuse to slow down his awesome bla bla bla.  Just musings of the structure of literature.

Baxin's mistress for me. I like her nonchalance and determinism.

Renarin is definitely my favorite minor character. Rock is a close second. For the Interludes, I loved Axies. I hope he shows up again.

Seems to me like a lot of Kaladin's bridge crew has a few mysteries in their past, Teft with his Knight Radiant worship, Moash with his vengeance, maybe even Rock with his bow mastery.

Axies was a fun interlude character.  I'd say he was my favorite minor character so far, but Renardin seems like he could end up being interesting.

All of the Heralds except Taln, anyone who is willing to leave a colleague to an eternity of barbaric torture has my vote.

(spoilers ahead)

Definitely Syl. She is awesomespren. Especially in the one scene where she fended off the deathspren by charging them with her lightsaber. Love her.  :)

Yes, SYL! :D I love Syl.  She is my most favorite character ever!

Axies the Collector was by far my favorite character, outside of the main ones.  Though I really did enjoy Kaladin's mother, and I very much disliked his father..  I guess dislike is a strong word, I just felt he was too much of a stereotypical character, other than the fact that he stole the spheres.  I'm pretty convinced at one point Kaladin will be reunited, even if he doesn't want to be, with his parents.
Now why'd you have to go and push that button?!

The most memorable interlude for me was actually the fisherman (though I don't remember his name), with their carefree lifestyle and the girl that wanted to marry him. I loved reading about all the different cultures of Roshar that we'll hopefully see more of in the sequels.

1. Syl. How could you *not* love Syl?
2. Rock. Chull dung stew!
3. Navani. The fabrial-making, butt-kicking mother of the king.

If you count her as a minor character then unquestionably Jasnah. She is my favourite character from any of the Sanderson books.

I vote for Teft, all the way!! Sigzil's past strikes me as the most potentially-fascinating, though.

Jasnah will definitely get a focus book, so I'm not sure if I'd count her.

I have to go with Lopen. I'm not sure if Brandon gave a thorough physical description, but even if he did, my mental image of Lopen is a one-armed Cheech Marin.
