Your favourite Blizzard Character and why?

Sure I swiped this question from WoW Insider, but I figured I'd post it to the rest of the community here. Blizz certainly has a knack for fleshing out the characters in the game. So I ask you this, from the various characters in all three Blizzard universes (Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo) who do you consider your favourite and why? Unfortunately, my knowledge of the Diablo universe is drastically limited and I wont' be able to comment as such.

Is it the vulture-riding, gauss rifle firin' Marshal Jim Raynor? Or perhaps Fenix, the Protoss with two lives? Perhaps its Jaina Proudmoore, one of the few truly intelligent humans who actually grasped the threat and answered what was asked of her to do.

Hmmmmm...

SC - Mengsk, evil, cunning. I like it.
WC - Grom, just an awesome char in WC3, funny char in WC2:BTDP
Diablo - Cain, if only because hes the only "character" in both games, and all i really know.

SC - The Overmind is certainly my favorite.
Wc - I find it hard to like most of the characters in this ridiculously defaced universe post-wc3, so I'll go with Deathwing, because Deathwing was awesome and represents when WC wasn't in the gutter.
Diablo - Why, Diablo, of course! He's big, he's manly, and he lights shit on fire. Cain was pretty cool, too, because he is old enough to be my great grandfather and still wanders around in the depths of hell no less worried then a mailman packing heat.

SC: Raynor, hes the good guy :)
Wc3: I loved Illidan before blizzard butchered lore and made him evil to everyone, I recall in the night elf campaign that he was done with them and would chill in outland.

SC: Fenix of course.  Aside from Aldaris, he had the sexiest Protoss voice.  He was so noble and awesome.  When he was back as a Dragoon, that is when I dedicated my online avatar to him for always.  I was so sad when Kerrigan made me kill my favorite hero: where I then promptly one-shotted him with my Queen because I didn't want to kill half my swarm trying to take him down.

WC: Ticondrius.  He made the Burning Legion look really cool and my favorite Undead hero.  His voice and attitude, again, was sexy.

I know AA7 I hated killing Fenix to so I did also use the Queen to do a quck death.

Also Diablo 1: The blacksmith (forgot his name) he had a cool accent and was pretty funny sometimes.
SC: Zeratul because hes so mysterious and Tassadar for he is a brave man.

SC: Aldaris, aka PROFESSOR SMACKDOWN
WC: Everyone in the WC universe is retarded, but Varimathras is awesome because of his voice.  As far as favorite character, maybe Sylvanas in TFT?
Diablo: No one in the Diablo universe was really interesting.  Halbu would have been awesome if he didn't just stand there repairing shit and muttering "hail to you, champion." Prat.
