your favourite character from Gulliver Travels and why you like it?

I enjoyed the Houyhnhnms the most. Finally we encounter a species that surpasses humans in intellect and civility. They are an enlightened species.
They are endowed with great kindness and virtue. Gulliver lives among them for several years and afterwards is extremely reluctant to return to England.
Hi Aslan, Can you write something about Gulliver?
My favourite character would have to be Gulliver. From his voyages around the world, he sees different perspectives of lives. He is a giant among the miniature and puny inhabitants of Lilliput; a tiny creature as compared to the giant inhabitants of Brobdingnag; in Houyhnhnms where horses’ rule and have all the power while humans has the status as animals. One way or another, he is always finding himself in a sticky situation where he is in a tight spot and faces many difficulties. It may seem like a miracle but everytime he is somehow able to get back to his home country safely. After going through all those experiences, he feels that life in England seems ordinary.
Gulliver, whose name is a somewhat transparent reference to gullible, lacks a lot of essential knowledge in each world he visits. This lack of knowledge enables Gulliver to be completely honest and earnest in some situations.
