The Host - Character Page by picklelova The Host - Character Page by picklelova
Here are all the characters from The Host by Stephanie Meyer:

1. Melanie/Wanderer - I drew them in a pose similar to how I would draw Niki/Jessica for Heroes fanart. The whole dual personality thing is fun to draw :aww:
I find 'Wanda' (oh, how I hate that name, it just doesn't suit her) a bit too...I don't know...moral?

2. Jared - I hate Jared. He's inconsiderate for the longest time, violent, and doesn't give a rat's ass about Wanda. He's a jerk. :steaming: (I exaggerate, but he's way too selfish)
Jared = Jacob Black

3. Jamie - Jamie is really sweet, but also really manipulative. I don't think he does it on purpose, but he really is.
I didn't get all the stuff about him crying like a man. He acts like he's 8!
Jamie = Seth! :XD: (Werewolf from Eclipse)

4. Ian - Ian is my favorite! He's so sweet, a little overprotective, but he's tries to connect with Wanda. Lot's of fanart of him coming up!
Ian = Edward Cullen :love:

5. Kyle - He's a jerk. He sould have died. Nuff' said

Spoilers: I'm so happy he's stuck with Sunny. Haha.

6. The Seeker - No comment. She's a bitch. We know.

7. Jeb - I think he's awesome. He's kind of like Dumbledore, nice, but he could kick your ass in a heartbeat. I'm happy he's alive.

8. Doc - HOW OLD IS DOC???WTFH :confused:
I drew him here how I imagine him, like a hard 60 or 55 at best (He looks 70, but he's not supposed to)
But I imagine Sharon like 30. WTH?
Now I imagine Doc as 50-55 and Sharon as anywhere b/w 35 and 45.

Overall, I really like the book :D

A. Jared is NOT a jerk!!! He lost his whole family and his love!! SYMPATHiZE!! It's really hard for him to see Mel with silver eyes, it makes him feel like he's failed!
B. Jamie is THE cutest character in the book! He does NOT act like he's 8! He's tragic! The boy lost his whole family!!! He's only like, 14!
C. Doc is also something like 30!

Doc is like twenty-five or something.Just imagine,Sharon is kind of the same age as Melanie,and Melanie is like,uhh 20???So this means Sharon can't be married to a 60 yrs old man unless he is a pedophile. O.o

Also isn't Sharon like the same age as Melanie but with a pole shoved up her butt? (NO OFFENSE FOR ANYONE WHO LIKES HER!!!)

I imagine Doc like 35. xD Maybe like three years older then Sharon?
Kyle is awesome. I love him. But I love Ian more. xD
You're right. Jacob=Jared. Jared is a mother f***er
Ian is not Edward for me. He's Jasper. xD

I disagree. I love Jacob Black with all my heart (though Ian is definitly growing on my, I just finished the book like 20 min ago)!!! He is nothing like Jared!! I love your pictures but I personally disagree with Ian= Edward and Jared= Jacob. I don't think we should compare them. They are four diffrent characters from two diffrent novels. Although I agree inthe fact that Edward and Bella should be together. I personally am not a huge fan of either of them (thought I love all four of the books) Your art is very good and I think it matches the characters well.


Ian/Wanda forever.

Jacob/Ella(me^^)

Nice!

Though I don't think Doc's old. Maggie is Jeb's age, and I pictured Sharon at around 30. I think Doc clocks in around there too. Though that's just me. I could have totally misread something. *cough*likely*cough*

Do you really hate Kyle? Cause I did, until I saw how protective he was of Sunny. Then I gave in. :) Though his brother's still the best.

Kyle is an ass. Hopefully Stephenie will go ahead with that sequel, and we'll get to see him change a bit. Because I'm sure Sunny will help him with his attitude problems. :P

btw, when i said i didn't like wanda, i meant THE NAME, not her. she is the shiz... except when she has the fiery love bits with HE WHO SHALL NOT BE NAMED i.e. Jared...
I guess Jared's okay... hmph.

Wanda is a terrible name, I totally agree. When Jeb says that I thought, "oh God, she is not keeping that name for the rest of the book, is she?" :noes:

Smiley-Faceless Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2008
hmmm... I agree with you on everyone but kyle...
I actually sorta like Kyle... I know, HYPOCRITICAL, since I dislike Jared for being pig-headed and cruel and selfish and all. But Kyle is soo sweet at the end, and I really like what happened with Sunny - it was like a huge learning curve for him lol. And plus he's Ian's brother. And I... okay, this sounds weird, i know, but I reckon that the scene where he tries to kill Wanderer (i don't like Wanda so much either) is one of the best scenes - i don't know why, but it's so... intense!! Awesome art, too... this has sorta turned into a character love/hate session rather then an art comment lol. But i do love how you drew Wand(gr)/Mel. V naice!
Wow, long comment... sorry.

I did love the whole Sunny thing (Haha Kyle didn't get exactly what he wanted and he learned a lesson) and I like him as a character, but I hated how whenever Wanda was like "Need some hel-" "OMG ur tryin' to kill us with seekers and eat our babies!omfg~!" >_<

awesome pics but I disagree with you saying Jared was inconsiderate for a long time...everyone who loves Ian seems to forget that he tried TO KILL Wanda and Jared protected her!
Reply
:iconpicklelova:
picklelova Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2008
my point was, Ian admits he was wrong and protects her within 50 pages. Jared takes forever to actually accept her. He doesn't protect Wanda , he's just instinctivly protecting Mel's body. Its not because he cares like Ian.

i love how you drew them all but i dont agree with your character comparing. in my opinion Jared is sooo not Jacob Black. and Ian is sooo not Edward. i just dont see it. and Jared is not a jerk, im getting tired of people saying that! obviously he was mean to Wanda, just like everyone else in the begining, but him especially because it was Melanies body. why should he have treated her nicely? she was just another one of the ';parasites' and none of them treated the other souls nicely. at least he stopped anyone from killing her.

It was just the fact that he refused to believe the truth even after everyone else did. He did too, but just wouldn't show it because he's a bit too proud. He's not a total jerk, he's just stubborn.

well okay, i can see that. so that makes him like Jacob because Jacob is too stubborn to see that Bella loves Edward more?

Doc was based on Stephenie's little brother... I like he is supposed to be around 30.
I saw Ian as Jacob the whole time. Jared didn't remind me of any Twilight characters. And Edward didn't have a parallel in The Host, no one had his personality.

I thought Ian's overprotective, cool, and caring attitude reminded my of Edward, while Jared's jerky, face-rape'y' behavior reminded me of Jacob.

Jamie = Seth :aww:

Ashuisha Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2008
All the people in the cave reminded me of the werewolves because no one really sophisticated survived the invasion, only the people who were more out of society to begin with. Ian actually cared about more people than just Wanda, and Edward only cares about Bella. Ian also pushed Wanda past physical limits in the beginning that she didn't agree to and that Melanie definately didn't agree to, and Edward would never do that. The way Ian competed with Jared was also more Jacob behavior and how he responded when Wanda said she was going to be removed from Melanie would also be how Jacob would have responded. Both Ian and Jared kinda face raped Wanda/Melanie because they had a tendency to forget one of the two existed. But you also have to admit Jared has a side in all of this. If the person you loved came back as another person, I am sure most people would respond the same way. I sort of saw the book as Stephenie finally making Jacob look good and giving him the girl.
