On Wednesdays We Wear Black

(WARNING. This post contains major spoilers for the first book in The Invisible Library series.)

We're linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday. This week, the theme is 'Ten Books that Feature Characters...' so bust out your eyeliner and put on your leather jacket, because we're talking about characters who wear black.

1. Thalia Grace and Nico di Angelo from Rick Riordan's Greek Stuff

Thalia: I wear black, listen to Green Day, and have a shield with Medusa's face on it. Ain't no one edgier than me!
  
Nico: *Strolls in wearing a skull ring with zombies springing up from the ground in his wake*

Thalia: *Leaves*

(I think those events might be in the wrong order. Nico couldn't summon zombies until the end of The Titan's Curse, and as for the ring -)

It's a joke, Ivy.

(An inaccurate one.)

...Next you'll be telling me that Thalia didn't leave because of Nico.

(She didn't.)

Oh my God... 


2. Ronan Lynch from The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

Wears black leather. Owns a raven. Would fight Glendower behind McDonald's at 3am, but Glendower probably wouldn't show.
 
3. Most of the Villains in the Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

Voldemort. Bellatrix. Snape, although whether or not he's actually a villain is up to interpretation. He's certainly not a saint.

(Harry would disagree.)

A moment of silence for Albus Severus Potter.

4. Kai from The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

When Irene first meets Kai, he's wearing a black leather jacket. Kind of ironic, given that Kai is from a race of beings associated with order and leather jackets are typically associated with rebels.
5. Jared and Lucas in The Legion Series by Kami Garcia

They're ghost-hunters and involved in a love triangle with the heroine. 

(They have truly earned their leather jackets.)
