Mine are:

MC: Elincia, character wise, even if she's a way better unit in RD.

Cavalier: Titania, Female Seth FTW

Mage: Calill, characterwise

Myrmidon: Stefan is a pretty interesting unit, especially the way to recruit him

Fighter: Boyd is a bro

Soldier: Nephenee is cool with that lance

Knight: Gatrie, a handsome flirt in blue armor

Archer/Bow Knight: Astrid, shame RD messed her character up, F U Makalov

Thief: Volke, more interesting and can promote

Medic: Rhys, liked his character more

Pegasus: Marcia, characterwise and a good unit

Wyvern: Jill, characterwise

Cat: Ranulf, characterwise and a stronger unit than Lethe

Tiger: Muarim, more interesting

Hawk: Tibarn, A Sexy Daddy Bird you don't want to mess with on the battlefield

Dragon: Nasir, stronger unit.

Other: Reyson, more interesting and likeable, plus is the refresher unit

Which of the following is your overall favorite, in terms of character, design, and/or unit?:

MC: Ike ( I really like Elincica in RD, but in PoR she doesn't really develop that much. Ike has a lot of good western-hero qualities)

Cavalier: Oscar (has the most abusive support boost, benefiting himself and Ike the most, has the Triangle Adept easter egg, although technically it's better to have him take the hand axe master race for his second weapon)

Mage:  Calill ( People always say that it was RD that nerfed mages, but tbh I really don't like them in PoR- probbably because forging and 1-2 range javelin/ handaxes on Bulky units are so readily availble. Both Soren and Illyana have an early period where tome weight or low MT prevents them from killing enemies that they might een double. Calill can't use staves, which is a shame, but tbh your units don't need healing that much in this game anyway, and She has immediately usable weapon ranks and combat stats)

Myrmidon:  Lucia (for not being a complete muppet- Mia has barely anything to do with the setting, Zihark "wanting to know laguz" is practically forced and better explored elsewhere, and the Stefan just pops up out of nowhere, doesn't comment on the present conflict whatsoever, and then lease because of *sequel building* ) 

Fighter:  Largo (His map sprite and combat model just satisfy me more than too-skinny Boyd)

Soldier: Nephenee  (She starts out with the absurd wrath skill for free. It's a lot of fun)

Knight: Tauroneo (I actually did a joke run where I used all three of them to Lvl 20/20 - Gatrie got doubled by a siege tome in the laguz tower level. Brom is thanfully fast enough to double fellow armors, axe units, and weighed down tome users. Taureno is kinda crudd, but he does have Resolve as a skill by default, and EVEN on him, it is a super skill.  Not many other places in the FE franchise where you'll see enemies that are in combat range that will refuse to attack _)

Archer/Bow Knight: Rolf (Rolf comes pretty close to capping every non-magic stat, just like Shinon, and you can use him during part of the game when you are actually fighting Fliers)

Thief: Volke ( Can open chests, I like the implication of Ike planning to have himself killed for the other's safety if it becomes neccesary)

Medic: Mist (Rhys is almost a joke charather statwise)

Pegasus: Tanith (Marcia is an awesome unit, but Tanith is fun with her unique reinforcement ability).

Wyvern: Jill ( I don't really like her early game without a BEXP dump, but same reasons as everyone else)

Cat:  Ranulf (Lethe is fun for like 8-10 chapters, and then she never levels up strength- Ranulf doesn't fall off so hard)

Tiger: Mordecai ( I like him because he fits the "General" build  a lot more competently than the actual Generals in this game, it's fun to beat things down with him, although his transformation timer starts in a pretty annoying place. Also Shove to win! )

Hawk: Tibarn (The other hawk's don't stand out compared to the pegauss and wyverns at all.)

Dragon:  Ena ( She works pretty well as a chapter boss, if not for her you wouldn't notice Ashnard's mount at all, her hiding her laguz status isn't as cheesy as Nasir hiding his)

Other: Reyson (Punches Oliver in the face, can dance multiple units, basically immune to enemy mages not that hand axe master race requires lure units)  and even has fairly decent healing)

MC: Both are some of my favourite characters in the series but Ike is number 1.

Cavalier: Titania, as a character and unit she is great.

Mage: Soren.

Myrmidon: not a huge fan of any of them but Lucia for her role in the story.

Fighter: Boyd, usually one of the first to promote. 

Soldier: Nephenee by far as the first playable foot lancer in the West. 

Knight: Gatrie is one of like 3 knights in the series I actually like.

Archer/Bow Knight: Rolf, even if he isn't the best unit.

Thief: Sothe if we take RD into account

Medic: Mist, a great supporting character 

Pegasus: Sigrun... ok she's only in RD but I don't really like Marcia or Tanith.

Wyvern: a rough one because both are awesome, but Jill has a much better arc.

Cat: Ranulf for his story presence.

Tiger: Mordecai, such a lovable guy.

Hawk: Tibarn is probably my favourite of the laguz leaders.

Dragon: Ena, for her role in the story

Other: Reyson, though I didn't like him at first

MC: Considering both PoR and RD, Elincia. Ike is just kinda... there... as a character. He's really bland on the whole. Elincia at least has something to her.

Cavalier: Titania. Yup.

Mage: Ilyana. So cute!

Myrmidon: Mia. No one should be surprised by this.

Fighter: None. Largo is barely there (not even there in RD) and Boyd rubs me the wrong way. So I hate both.

Soldier: Nephenee. Duh.

Knight: Gatrie. OTP Tree in a skirt!

Archer/Bow Knight: Astrid Why did she have to fall for that ****er Makalov? Rolf is a VEEEEEERY close second, especially due to underdog status, but he doesn't get Paragon.

Thief: Volke. I hate Sothe.

Medic: Mist. This might shock people; but if it wasn't for the damned Mia vs. Zihark debates I'd use Mist over Rhys as I find her more interesting and certainly enjoyable on the whole. Why they had to make it so she could only end up with Boyd, I dunno.

Pegasus: Tanith. I don't know why but Marcia really never did anything for me. Each time I use her her stats end up in mega-screw territory (I once got THREE 0-ups in a row when BEXPing her). So, yea... Tanith

Wyvern: Jill. No duh.

Cat: Lethe.

Tiger: I hate both. 

Hawk: Tibarn

Dragon: Eh. I don't care one way or the other about them. Too little screentime.

Other: Giffca. Screw Naesala for getting Leanne!

MC: Ike. I love Elincia too, but she's better in RD.

Cavalier: Kieran! I like Oscar too tho.

Mage: I don't really care for any of them.

Myrmidon: Zihark, no contest!

Fighter: Boyd is the only one, but I like him a lot anyway!

Soldier: Don't care for either of them.

Knight: Tauroneo, but I like Gatrie too.

Archer: Shinon!

Thief: Don't care for either of them.

Healer: Rhys

Pegasus: I feel I should be allowed to say Elincia here, but I really like Marcia too, so I can say her as well.

Wyvern: Both! I like Jill and Haar equally.

Cat: RANULF <3

Tiger: Mordecai. I like how he looks scary but is really a big teddy bear. Those kinds of male characters seem to always get to me.

Hawk: Tibarn!

Dragon: I'd like to say Kurthnaga, but since he isn't playable until RD, I guess I'll say Nasir.

Other: Reyson.

Writing-wise, yes. Design-wise, they're equal to me. But in PoR, Ike is better than Elincia writing-wise. Elincia is kind of just there for half the game and then is FINALLY playable in chapter 27 or 28. She's the main female, but because Ike is the actual lord and playable the whole game, he gets much more.

Agreed. But Micaiah is the best-written Tellius protagonist. Too bad she's not in PoR.

MC: Ike- Elincia is cool too, I came so close to disliking her after some incredibly annoying interactions with super fans, but playing RD is making me remember why I liked her. Ike is still my favorite by far though. I like how he kind of lives in his own little world, and how his character arc pretty much ends with him just wanting to not deal with people anymore. I think I am the only person on these forums that doesn't mind his RD ending.

Cavalier: Titania- Oscar is a close second, but Titania is just the best.

Mage: Soren- Need it be said?

Myrmidon: Stefan- pretty much entirely because the ridiculous way you recruit him amuses me.

Fighter: Boyd- only by virtue of that I used him for almost all of my first PoR playthrough.

Soldier: Nephenee- RIP the other guy, I forgot he existed until his doppelganger showed up in RD.

Knight: Tauroneo- because his mustache is fantastic.

Archer/Bow Knight: Rolf- my crit god. Shinon gets honorable mention.

Thief: Sothe- I like his design better.

Medic: Mist- couldn't have done that stupid BK duel without her.

Pegasus: Neither.

Wyvern: Haar- I love Jill too, but Haar is just the best.

Cat: Lethe or Ranulf- DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE

Tiger: Mordecai or Muarim- See above.

Hawk: Januff- his supports are great.

Dragon: Ena- Someone give this poor dragon a hug.

Other: Reyson- angry angelic birdman, what's not to love?

Cavalier: I know that Titania is way better as a unit, but Kieran is also pretty good and I really enjoy his character.
Mage: Soren hands down
Myrmidon: I honestly can't decide between Zihark and Stefan. They're both amazing gameplay and character wise.
Fighter: Boyd because at least he's relevant
Soldier: Nephenee someone always gets RNG blessed for me.
Knight: Gatrie's always been pretty funny and he's somehow gets a 60% speed growth in RD.
Archer: Shinon as he's also very good in RD and he brings a unique perspective to the Greil Mercenaries.
Thief: Volke is actually my favorite thief in the series (barring RD Sothe).
Medic: Rhys
Pegasus: Marcia has a pretty great support with Kieran where they pretty just shout at each other.
Wyvern: Jill

Interesting topic ^^

Which of the following is your overall favorite, in terms of character, design, and/or unit?:

MC: Ike 

Cavalier: Titania, Oscar, Kieran, or Geoffrey

All good. Except for Makalov.

Mage: Illyana,

 Great gril

Myrmidon: Stefan

Best developed character. I can talk hours about Stefan.

Fighter: Boyd

Awesome character. Boyd is ma boi 

Soldier: Nephenee 

Great stats

Knight: Gatrie, or Tauroneo

I like Gatrie. He is the best knight. However, Tauroneo has more character & a good backstory. Also, his line against Ashnard is awesome

Archer/Bow Knight: Shinon

Shinon is awesome. Astrid only get's her good looks and great growths (with an axe especially)

Thief: Volke

Awesome character. Nuff said?

Medic: Mist

Rhys(te vlaai) is cool. But Mist has a better character development. 

Pegasus: Tanith

Idc tbh

Wyvern: Haar

Funny character. But can be serious. 

Cat: Ranulf

More character development. Although I almost ALWAYS used Lethe. She was quickly transformed and her level was higher then Ranulf on many occasions. Also, Lyre is hotter than her sister qq

Tiger: Muarim

A f*ng green tiger. But not only that. He has a great (but sad) backstory

Hawk: Tibarn

Awesome character

Dragon: Nasir

Better story arc. Ena was kinda bland. But that was because she was sad all the time

Other: Naesala

He becomes more of an interesting character in RD

I didn't care that much about Reyson. But he got a great dialogue with Ashnard
