Well I think tushantin said it best,  but actually I was a Magus hater back in the day. I only started to like him when I played the DS version because I saw that he was misunderstood and all he wanted to do was have his sister back : (. So I kind of felt bad for him.

When I first started playing the game, I got annoyed with all the Magus fans and I usually killed him off instead of adding him to my team. Frog has always been my favorite character, so I thought I owed it to him!

I guess I joined the ranks when I made a Magus fic myself. lol. He's not become my favorite character or anything, I guess I feel like I understand him better. He's not emo, he's just dark and motivated. Also, I think his sprite is really cute. He looks like a little chibi elf. lol.

My friends and I used to "assign" characters to ourselves whenever we'd play rpgs with a big cast. There's usually someone for everyone, or else you get to make fun of the friend that's stuck as the talking animal or the opposite gender. We were also like ten (but still do it thirteen years later). I was Frog, my buddy with the long hair was Magus. That was the dynamic we used to relate to the game. Frog is still my favorite, and even though I haven't seen him in several years, Joe probably still loves Magus. Those two are the only ones in the party that get backstory shown in more than one flashback. I know what Lucca looked like as a child from the single time you go into her past, yes. And even Marle looked like the other little blonde haired white girls in the Millenial Fair. But you see Glenn grow up into a knight, then you see it get taken away. Brilliant. You meet Magus. Later, you see this little shit running around a magic island brigning everybody down. You meet the prophet, albeit indirectly. But then it all turns out to be the same person. I think these types of revelations are where the fan obsession comes from. Seeing what one of your favorite game's characters as a child and seeing them interact with others and understanding the development from that to what you know and accept as the "current" version, the adult version, definitely creates a bond between character and player. That's my two pennies and you can take em or leave em in the 7-11 jar.

Magus is like Drizzt, minus what I call the Spice Girls Factor. The Spice Girls spread themselves way too thin.  The same thing happened for Drizzt.  The nice thing is that there is not a whole race of Maguses, unlike a whole race of Drizzts, therefore stopping said Spice Girls Factor.
