Thought this might be fun, it doesn't seem to exist already (?). I just thought of it (on seeing the audial impressions thread) so i don't have any ideas yet.

BAP reminds me of Watson (Sherlock Holmes).

TimeAsylum maybe reminds me of a Greek tragic hero - perhaps Achilles.

I think Architect is more like the ObiWan and has an avatar to match the trope.

My opinion using links 1 and 2

Architect - I agree with Obi-Wan.
TheScornedReflex - Shapeshifting Seducer
Cognisant - The Idealist
Redbarron, Montressor, BAP, just george - Cynics, Higher Selves, or Loveable Rogues
Duxwing - Holy Child, Cunning Linguist
ADMINs - Powers That Be (especially the mysterious Fukyo)
TimeAsylums - Prince Charming/ The Fool or Jester
Dialectic - The Archmage
Gopher - Evil Overlord
Clock - Clock King
THD - This type of doctor or Super Doc....no scrap that see this.
Polaris - Stern Teacher/ Sadist teacher

I got carried away.

I think he's more of a social gadfly but not at par with Socrates.

Are you comparing Holden Caulfield with Socrates?

(Sorry, I hated Holden, but I do admire Socrates).

Is that girl Hermione Granger? :headscratch I never read the Harry Potter books, but I can appreciate her dedication to pronunciation correction (especially considering that mispronouncing a spell can injure you): rock on, sister!
