My Favorite Character of All Time - NaBloPoMo

The prompt doesn't specify if it's a movie character, anime, politics, historic or what not; since i'm a movie enthusiast  let's just assume that's what we are talking about. The other hiccup i have with this question is having to chose just one, that's so difficult, but i will try my best.

One of my many many Favorite Movie Characters is Lieutenant Colonel Frank Spade
"Scent of a Woman" (1992) Played by Al Pacino

If you have not seen this movie, shame on you! If you've seen this movie and you disagree, Shame on you twice!! This Character has such deep human emotions that it makes the whole difference in this movie.The personality is that of a bully but the heart is pure sunshine of humanity, just ignore the rest of the cast :)

One of my favorite bits, Lt Colonel Frank Spade:

"Out of order, I'll show you out of order! You don't know what our of order is Mr. Task. I'd show you, but i'm too old, i'm too tired, i'm too fuckin' blind. If i were the man i was five years ago, i'd take a flamethrower to this place! out of order? Who the hell do you think you're talkin' to? i've been around, you know? There was a time i could see. And i have seen. Boys like these, younger than these, their arms torn out, their legs ripped off. But there isn't nothin' like the sight of an amputated spirit. There is no prosthetic for that. You think you're  merely sending this splendid foot soldier back home to Oregon with his tail between his legs, but i say you are executing his soul! and why? Because he's not a Bairdman. Bairdmen. You hurt this boy, you're gonna be Baird  bums, the lot of ya. And Harry, Jimmy, Trent, wherever you are out there, Fuck You Too!"
