12 Literary Characters We Wish Existed In Real

Sometimes you come across such beautiful characters that you feel like wrenching them out of the book & bring them into the real world, for the sole purpose of making them your new bff! Below is a list of various characters that would have the world a much happier place had they existed in real.

1. Jay Gatsby From The Great Gatsby

His larger than life character. His Rags to Riches story. His unworldly love for Daisy and blind pursuit of her. Every party he throws, everything he purchases, every decision he makes is a part of grand scheme to bring her back. Set in the jazz age this one surely makes us want to either go back in time or wish we could attend atleast one of his parties

2. Bertie Wooster From P.G. Wodehouse

Our British sweet natured but intellectually negligible young man. His camaraderie with Jeeves, whose genius manages to extricate Bertie or one of his friends from numerous awkward situations is the highlight of the series. Who woudn't want to sit with him at "The Drones Club" and know about how he manages to put himself in such situations.

3. Hermione Granger From The Harry Potter Series

According to J.K.Rowling "I did not set out to make Hermione like me but she is...she is an exaggeration of how I was when I was younger." She recalled being called a "little know-it-all" in her youth. Isn't that enough for us to wish she existed in real life?

4. Atticus Finch From To Kill A Mockingbird

A lawyer with a heart of gold and the world’s best dad, Atticus Finch is a character you automatically respect and love. It’s hard to get any other reaction. He is brilliant at whatever he does. He is kind, courageous and modest. It’s a herculean task to find such people today and the world sorely needs all the Atticus Finches it can find.

5. Sherlock Holmes

Nerd has always been looked upon as lame but Sherlock Holmes makes it effortless and always in style. Seriously though I truly wish an ingenious character like him existed. His analytical style could be used in a multitude of ways. Sherlock Holmes could use his almost superhuman powers to solve potential security disasters. Or helping us solve the mystery of ‘where on earth did the remote/keys/socks go?’ either way we are not fussy.

6. Holly Golightly From Breakfast At Tiffany's


The first thing that comes to our mind is Audrey Hepburn getting down from a cab on fifth avenue and walking towards Tiffany's with a pastry and a coffee. Oh ya who can forget the Givenchy black gown. Based on a novella by Truman Capote titled the same. Holly is sweet natured, eccentric, cafe-society girl who has no job and lives by socializing with wealthy men, who take her to clubs and restaurants, and give her money and expensive gifts, she hopes to marry  one of them. She would be an ideal girlfriend for our ladies night out and men would simply love to pamper her

7. Holden Caulfield From The Catcher In The Rye

Almost all of us can identify with him. Holden has become an icon for teenage rebellion and angst. His discontent, vivid ways of expressing himself has made him one of the most endearing characters in 20th-century American fiction. We would love to chill with him and talk about his revulsion for "phony" qualities

8. Dracula

The original baddie award goes to... Dracula! Bram Stoker’s book of the same name was published in 1897, and the fascination with vampires still continues. Had Dracula existed today in real life he would become a living icon, or the world’s most famous criminal (it can swing either way!). If anything tourism would thrive because I am sure people would show up in throngs to catch a glimpse of the real living legend.

9. Ford Prefect From A Hitchhiker’s Guide To Galaxy

This funky and witty character is from A Hitchhiker’s Guide To Galaxy  written by Douglas Adams. Ford is an experienced galactic hitch-hiker and also an alien journalist. Could anyone have a cooler job? Maybe not. He is intelligent, brave spunky and stomach achingly hilarious. He is broad minded and possesses a very black sense of humour. Imagine the fun conversations you could have with him! 

10. Tyler Durden From Fight Club

The charismatic, deadly, unshakeably cool " Soap Maker" Tyler Durden from Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club. He is a bad ass who defies and creates rules while never letting anyone walk all over him. Brad Pitt played the role of Tyler in the movie adaptation Everything he says sounds like the most quotable thing you've ever heard. We would love to meet this anti-hero especially if he came in a Brad Pitt avatar

11. Jo From The Little Women

It is said that this character is based on Louisa may Alcott herself. Josephine or jo is that girl we all want to be friends with. She is a total tomboy and unselfish to boot. She sells her hair for the sake of her family! Jo refuses to adapt to the gender stereotypes and is a good sturdy person through and through. She is not a perfect character, she is flawed but we love her all the more for that!

12. Rhett Butler From Gone With The Wind

He goes around doing exactly what he wants without worrying what everyone thinks. He is not hypocritical to judge a woman, who works to make sure food is on the table. His gorgeous looks combined with a smart mouth can make a woman go weak in her knees. Who can forget the scene when he tells Scarlett "You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how." We can swoon over this man only if he existed.
