Who was the most memorable character of The Lantern Bearers and why? Aquila, the protagonist, undoubtedly is one of the most memorable protagonists in any book I've ever read. It's so relatable to watch him react to the sorrows, struggles and loss of his dreams, and to slowly over the years try to find ways to live with them and overcome them.
