It's so hard to choose a favorite, since each character adds something unique to the stories -- but I ultimately chose Willie.
Willie is such a nuanced character -- starting out as a down-on-his-luck, and not-too-terribly-bright drunk, who soon becomes the confidant of Barnabas, Victoria and Julia Hoffman. Each person comes to him with their secrets and trusts him to keep them.
Despite his shady past, Willie has a strong moral compass, and tries to protect the people around him from being hurt (in the case of Victoria, Julia, David& Carolyn) or being discovered (in the case of Barnabas).
My second favorite would have to be Victoria. Sweet and infinitely kind-hearted, yet also very much an enigma. I was really looking forward to learning more about her past.
