Silk (Prince Kheldar) from David Eddings' Belgariad.

But it's not a stereotype of which I am fond, to put it mildly.

I was torn between Mouse and Nifft, and went with Nifft because I was fairly sure nobody else would.

Not got round to reading it, but I have it in the library ready and waiting. I'm currently reading the same author's 'A Quest for Simbilis', his appoved sequel to Jack Vance's 'The Eyes of the Overworld' which of course features the second option in this list.

I've read it four or five times. It was a teenage favourite.

Kiera the Thief. Or Silk - how could you forget Silk?

Sorry - never read any Eddings. Should I?

You're about 20 years too old, I reckon ;-) I haven't dared to reread them, but I adored Silk at the time.

Agreed on the '20 years too old'. I adored the books as a teenager, but find them just a little too cheesy and formulaic these days!

Flattered by the idea that I was a teenager 20 years ago. I mean I was, but only just!
