Hi. I totally agree with you. Hands down, Agent Silver. I also agree that the scenario would definitely have to be completely different for me to want to be like him.

To be completely honest, I had a hard time identifying with any of the characters. Maybe Sliver if I have to pick someone? Only because I understand the pressure and discontentment of sometimes just having to follow your role, and do what you need to do, whether you like it or not.

Yes, I chose Sliver as well, but hope I would not actually be like him. I did enjoy the fun things about his character, like being very strong.

I would identify with Kelly in some circumstances but in life, you may find yourself doing what was not your intention hence will most likely behave like Agent Silver. This is a perfect example since he was also able to change positively.

This is my view also. It is at times difficult to understand why you will have to do something especially when it is in your role to do so though you may not necessarily like doing it.

It seems Agent Silver is getting a nod of approval from many.

He was definitely the most human out of all of the characters. That's how I felt, at least :)

So, I tend to agree here. I felt no attachment to ANY of the characters. I don't think I can pick one that I identify with the most, because there are none.

Appreciate your comments. Things did center around Sliver for sure.

Yes, he found himself in very strange circumstances and brainwashed into doing things he would not otherwise have done. Nevertheless, I still identified with many aspects of his personality.

I don´t think I truly identify with one of them. There´s Rex´s compassion, which I´d like to think I have, and Kelly´s innocence, but I think my choice would be Sliver.
Even though it´s not a complete identification, because I´m not an assassin, I think we see him evolve and transform and curiosity was a central part of his character and I´m terribly curious and feel like I´m also evolving from overcoming many set ideas and/or prejudices that my religion and upbringing have set on me. So, I don´t know how I would react to all the training and hardships that Sliver had to endure, but I can relate to that facet.
