From the anime Slayers, Zelgadis Greywords is a powerful sorcerer that ends up in Lina and Gourry's group. He is 1/3 golem, 1/3 demon, and 1/3 human because of a curse that he desperately wants to find a cure for. He thinks of himself as evil, but not too evil. While he is mainly a sorcerer he packs a mean punch with a sword as well.
Why I like him: He's determined and shy but he knows when to speak up. He doesn't like the way he looks and works very hard to change that. A lot of chubby people could learn from this teehehe. Overall he is the most interesting Slayers character to me and it was always fun when the story revolved around him.
Why I hate him: He's my favourite Slayers character, no hate here.
Overall: Slayers is LONG and for the most part mindless fun. When the plot episodes appear that is where it really shines.
