Out of every character I have talked about or plan to talk about, Saphira is the one who most reminds me of you. Only she’s a gigantic blue dragon who is regarded as a natural flier.
Seriously though. I just paused in writing this to do some fact checking so I could really write about her accurately, and I almost cried about how much like you she really is. For starters, she is highly intelligent, opinionated, and wise, though she has lazy tendencies. Saphira is very proud, and even vain at times, once mentioning that she didn’t understand how people could go into battle looking anything but their best, and that she wanted her enemies to admire her as well as fear her. She believes herself to be the most magnificent creature in the world, but also has doubts about this. She wants a family badly- it’s a physical pain to her that she is the last free dragon in existence, which makes mating an issue. She doesn’t hesitate to give an honest and passionate opinion, and can be brutally blunt.
Saphira is an interesting character because not only do you see her grow as a character, you see her grow up. At first, she’s a baby, and slowly she learns to speak, learns to fly, learns to empathize with others. She becomes older. We see her when she develops a bit of a sex drive, and when she really comes to terms with the being that she is. Her journey is so much more incredible than that of other characters because you see this… you can see exactly why she is who she is.
There are so many interesting things about Saphira, probably because she has so many opinions and will not stand to keep them quiet. Like you, she sees beauty in pain, although she hates to see anything suffer for too long. She is a firm believer of the food chain, which does put her at odds a bit with her rider Eragon, who is a firm vegetarian starting in the second book. As I said earlier, she loves to look her best, but doesn’t see the point in being pretty if it isn’t practical as well. She doesn’t tolerate stupidity.
I used to not like Saphira so much, but I really have grown to love her. And I do believe that if you read the series, you’ll adore her.
Traits: fearsome, fierce, vain, proud, compassionate, calming, polite, wise
Things that might take points off: I really can’t think of anything you might dislike about Saphira herself. The books, though, do tend to start off slow. I know people who can’t stand them simply because of how slow they start out.
All around Zoë compatibility: 10. Yes, I’m giving her a perfect score. I think she deserves it.
Adding to your ask about "excusing" Dean... Not to mention Dean is a very non-verbal person when it comes to his feelings. He's the most emotional and sensitive character on the show, but also the least verbal about his feelings. So he's grateful to Sam and Cas and you can see that. That's visible. Hopefully, one day, he'll be comfortable enough with his emotions to say it... but just because it's unspoken doesn't make it not true or not there. Words to live by.
do you get all these replies? Like do they override each other? I don’t think so because I’ve gotten multiple replies from the same person on the same post before. Maybe I’ll keep sending them just because why not
