Thumbs up Which Sharpe character are you?

Daniel Hagman

You are Daniel Hagman!
A crack shot and still one of the elite, even at your age.

You are Major-General Hector Ross! A genial commander who knows his business, and head of Wellington's intelligence service.




I like the bit about being head of the 'intelligence' service ....
