I'm not sure just how...unbiased a sample you can really argue given various fandoms, what with the heavy leanings media has towards male main characters and predominantly male casting of (most) ensemble shows.

HOWEVER.

I don't really identify with male/female so much as other characteristics.

Strong supporting characters, particularly those who could be seen as 'main character with added brain and/or ethics' float my boat a LOT. Note that this does not apply to characters who act as the show's ethics (i.e. Daniel Jackson). Those who visibly wrestle with heavy ethical implications, such as Hammond, do too. Not to say that main characters don't, but if I can't see it, they don't get points. Or something.

Characters who represent an alternate and/or outside point of view, and/or 'quasi-villains'. This usually falls to 'token aliens' (Teal'c, Dureena) or characters who would generally be considered 'evil' but at least look like they're trying to redeem themselves for whatever reason (Todd, Ruby).

All in all, I haven't actually listed out my favorite characters before now, but I do know I have a decided leaning away from main/central characters. Whether that affects the male/female ratio..uh. I don't know, I don't think I'm in enough fandoms to really analyze that closely.
