Celes (FF6) A female soldier with integrity who came to stand up for what she thought was right.
Tifa (FF7) She's so sweet and loyal, and the fact that she was so shy was kinda cute and at odds with her appearance and asskicking abilities.
Freya (FF9) A tragic figure, but doesn't wallow in emo and angst.
Lulu (FFX) I love her sarcasm. XD
