Havlock Vetinari from Terry Pratchett's Discworld books. Smart, shrewed, resourceful and, according to one of the other characters in the series, with a mind like corkscrew.

Second choice would be Louis Wu from Larry Niven's Known Space books. Not as interesting an individual but his life's experiences would be facinating.

Judging from how the ladies are reacting, I'll have to say Mr. Darcy!

I was trying to think of a Discworld character I'd like to be... (definitely not Wee Mad Arthur). I think I'd like to be Rincewind. Always getting into trouble, going on adventures but everything works out in the end. Or maybe the Librarian. Hang out in the library all day eating bananas. Sounds good to me!

Terry Pratchett is good at coming up with crazy characters.

I would die to be Elizabeth Bennett, from Austen's Pride & Prejudice -- especially as she is imagined in Mr. Darcy takes a wife. Hubba, hubba.
