This week’s Top Ten Tuesday over at The Broke and Bookish asks us to share a Father’s Day related Freebie! I love these freebie list topics as their is more room for creativity in our lists and so more reason to blog hop and comment. That’s always a good thing! So I love the idea of good dads and already wrote a guest post over at Curiosity Quills about it so I really had to put my thinking cap on… I love characters so I chose males that I think would make great fathers someday!
What characters have you read that have great Dad potential?
#1 – Tybalt
From October Daye series
The king of the Cait Sidhe or Dreaming Cats, he already has an heir in Raj, his teenage nephew and has trained him well. Having a child with Toby though who is the daughter of Amandine and a rare Daoine Sidhe, a blood worker… can you imagine their child’s gifts? And how snarky and gorgeous?
#2 – Simon Wolfgard
From The Other Series
The leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, he has a lot of responsibility but none so important than his nephew, Sam whose mother died violently in front of him. The poor pup had to be locked up in a cage which practically killed his uncle… So when he sees hope in freeing his nephew he works to make that happen…
#3 – Fian
Jarra has been a hard girl to deal with yet Fian stuck by her even after all her lies. He stayed calm and yet is totally passionate and those are good qualities in a dad… I see them having a slew of girls and they all are passionate about archaeology like their parents. I imagine some are “apes” and dad helps them deal with that…
#4 – Eli
From Not a Drop to Drink
One of the reasons I wanted to write this post is for a character like this who does not have an opportunity for a future. He is a city boy trying to protect his sister in a water deprived land. He doesn’t have the skills Lynn has but I think that he had the heart to learn. He wanted to protect and serve and he could have learned what was necessary.
#5 – Akiva
A seraphim who is in love with a chimaera in a human shell he has a lot of daddy issues. Having just won a war and learned who he is and where his mother came from he is ripe to settle down. He has mad fighting skills to teach a crop of sons… though I’m not sure how the whole chimaera and seraphim will work out in offspring…
#6 – Inari
From Red Winter Trilogy
As one of the Kunitsukami, the earth gods who protect, he embodies fire. He can shape changed into a 9 tailed fox and is quite soft and cuddly in his non-battle form. He is mischievous and a perfect playmate to a child and capable in protecting them as they explore the yokai world. And he can bring on the cold when discipline is needed!
#7 – Khalid
The Caliph of Khorasan has been cursed to kill a thousand brides and only through the efforts of his beloved wife Shazi has he been freed. I think after all he’s experienced that he understands the value of life and family. He understands what a father should be and would love to see a miniature Shazi…
#8 – Rider
About to age out of the foster care system Rider knows what it means to be abused and that sometimes all it takes to survive is someone to love. I think he wouldn’t waste one day telling his children that he loves them. He’d mentor the boys in whatever they wanted to do and protect the girls.
#9 – Takaomi Saeki
A delinquent whose affection formed Mafuyu into a good and kind master fighter he has come a long way from his youth and is now a teacher. I totally see him settling down and helping his rough and tumble girls and boys be good and kind delinquents with a heavy dash of mischievous mystery.
#10 – Harrison Cody
From Mayhem Wave series
Left on his own after his world melded with a future tech filled earth and a fantasy world he comes across Mitchell a little boy hiding in a futuristic train station. He gets the boy to trust him and takes him to a city where the little boy can start over.With nary a love interest in sight he’ll have to find a girl to settle down…
