Another immortal I loved was Magnus Bane from Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments. I really enjoyed the way he was written as a character with so much history and pain. Another awesome character is Castiel from Supernatural (he's immortal, right?), and I also fell in love with Raffe from Penryn and the End of Days. (I think I have a thing for angels lol).

Ah...this is a good one too. I love the Tuck family. In fact, this is a book that I've read a number of times. So, I guess, on top of Peter Pan, I would say Jesse (and his family) are also good ones.

Whilst I'm on the topic of vampires, teenage me also loved Angel from Buffy the Vampire slayer as well.

I was wondering when people would bring up Buffy. I honestly just watched it a few years back (I'm sorry, I'm a young one), but I have to say that I loved Spike more. Less brooding, more trashy liquor and ramen hair. I'm not saying he's my classiest fave, but I do love him.
"Accursed creator! Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust? God, in pity, made man beautiful and alluring, after his own image; but my form is a filthy type of yours, more horrid even from the very resemblance. Satan had his companions, fellow devils, to admire and encourage him, but I am solitary and abhorred."
How can you not feel that pain?
And Lúthien is just the most kick-ass elf lady ever. Marrying a mortal, flowers growing under her feet as she walks, escaping by using her hair, taking on Melkor in his lair.... yeah, I think I want to be Lúthien.
After Tolkien's elves I discovered the Marvel cinematic Universe. I am still trying to figure out which brother I love more: Thor or Loki.
Wolverine from X-men is also a favourite - I cannot wait to see Logan! And mystique - another morally ambiguous, probably bad but super-awesome meta-human.
And my most recent immortal crush: Rhysand, High Lord of the Night Court in the "A Court of Thorns and Roses" trilogy by Sarah J Maas. I love his dangerous/bad persona in the first book and how one gets to know him better in the second. I can physically not wait for "A Court of Wings and Ruin" that comes out later this year. I do not think I have ever been as book hungover as I was after "A Court of Mist and Fury".
Lastly, I feel my list would not be complete without Tom Riddle/Lord Voldemort. Even though he is not immortal per se, that was his objective, without which we would not have the Harry Potter series. And though he is not my favourite character, I am intrigued by what drove him and where everything went wrong. (I guess I just wanted an excuse to mention Harry Potter).
