2. Davos - Probably one of the most loyal characters in the series
3. Oberyn Martell - Awesome fight with Gregor and I liked his character
4. Ramsy Snow/Bolton - His so insane but so clever as well how he faked his death and a ture villian in the series
5. Jamie - I really liked his character change when they cut off his hand, gains a sense of duty and honour that he didn't have before

2. Sandor "The Hound" Clegane: while cruel, I found Sandor to have a great wisdom while he lived. He knew the truth of the world.
3. Samwell Tarly: I found I could easily relate to this man of the Night's Watch, though I don't consider myself to be that much of a craven.
4. Davos Seaworth: This guy had an incredible sort of wisdom in him. His loyalty to Stannis was really more than the King deserved, to be honest.
5. Jaqen H'ghar: Even though he was a rather minor character in the second book (i'm not sure if he'll show up later on,) he just seemed like a cool guy overall. He seemed to understand the world well, much like The Hound, but this man paid his debts.

My other favorites are Tyrion (obviously), Jon Snow, and Bran. I identify with them for similar reasons as I listed for Arya, but unlike Arya, they are all much more wise about the world and its people.
Smaller characters I love are Varys, Tormund Giantsbane, and Meera Reed.
I really have to disagree that Arya appears weak, but agree that she tries to be strong. As a little girl she is obviously physically weak but it seems this aspect is never put to the test or shown to drag her down. Instead she has strengths that she develops and uses to become a "silent power". I rather enjoy the way martin used Arya as a character who seeks to find her identity and role in life.
Arya is one of my favorite characters because of the stories she represents. She undergoes a journey that is more like the backalley amorphous adventure than the structured main road of King's Landing.

Favourite? By far, I love reading Jaime and Tyrion's POV chapters.
When GRRM goes into Jaime's head and thoughts, it is really interesting and fun. Jaime will also be a really fun read next book. Tyrion's POV is just so addictiing. There isn't one part I didn't like.
I just really hope GRRM doesn't make Jon, Dany's and Arya's story boring...

And Theon....I know, I know....a lot of people HATE him for what he did...but I don't know, I have some sort of weird attachment to him and secretly am rooting for him.

4. Robert Baratheon (because of his back story, what an absolutely tank he used to be)
5. Loras Tyrell
and also Rhaegar Targaryan, can't really say he's one of my favourite characters but I find him so interesting I hope George does a prequel or reveals more about him/that time

I believe Dany must tackle the biggest challenges. She acts like Sansa at the beginning, accepting whatever fate she is thrust upon. However, she distinguishes herself by making the best of whatever position she is in. If she is married to a warlord, she knows how to use that to her advantage. Whenever she see's something she believes is wrong, if it is within her power, she stops it. She is becoming more and more independent of others every book. Big time when she tells Mormont off. I feel she is becoming a leader that will be powerful enough to take the Iron Throne, but is she losing sight of her youth? She always says she wants to "go home." but it never occurs to her that her youth is paying the price. Will she take the throne and find that home wasn't worth what she gave up?
2. Tyrion Lannister
4. Arya Stark
5. Bran Stark

Tyrion is a close second, the guy is just legendary for his witty comments and his very likable personality, he seems the only decent guy in all of kings landing at present
i at first did not like Jammie for his arrogance yet by this books end he had changed a lot and as his sister said he was not the same man as before. his experience on the road to kings landing and time with Brienna has changed him, he seems to really want to reclaim his lost honour

I love their acid dialogues, especially Tyrion's. I usually laugh a lot while reading his chapters.
At the other end there is Sonsa Stark, the girl with 'boring' written all over her face. "Sonsa" is a portuguese word for 'dumb'.
