Just wanted to say how much I relate to this. Sinclair was tough (he beat Neroon up!) but spiritual; he sought wisdom and was a thinker, but was never afraid to act and do the right thing; he was an excellent diplomat even when he probably felt like punching someone. And he liked Tennyson! I think Sinclair had a lot of gravitas and Sheridan had a lot of charisma. Being British, I do tend to sway more toward the stiff upper lip thing that Sinclair had going on!

Ultimately I like both Sheridan and Sinclair for different reasons, but I identify more with Sinclair.
