Any character influence you?

Great question over on the Nathan Bransford blog. He reminds us that "fictional characters possess all of the power of real people when it comes to influencing and changing lives. So the question: what fictional characters have most affected you? Who has changed your personality, worldview, and/or ethics."

I wonder what would happen if we narrowed this down to the mystery / thriller genres - can anyone honestly say they were influenced, even in any part of their lives, by a fictional detective or other character from these genres?

I can not say with for sure any particular character has influenced me. However I do know one of the influences on our lives is what we read.
