What a great idea!
Can I suggest the sidekick from my own series of books?
I write the Jimmy Coates series, published by HarperCollins. The first in the series is 'Jimmy Coates: Assassin?' and it's just out in paperback in the US. (It's already a year old in the UK, where I'm pleased to say it's won awards and some great reviews.)
Anyway, I'll stop plugging my book and tell you that Jimmy's sidekick throughout the series is his friend, Felix Muzbeke.
