My favorite character from Rurouni Kenshin. He doesn't follow any ideology and is free from any political affiliation in the manga.
He's not a hermit because he wants to be one with nature or any of those cliches people have about the old masters that live up in the mountains or away from society; he's a hermit because he specifically finds dealing with people annoying.
I like characters that go and do their own thing and don't give a damn what other people think.
