    I'll choose Despina - I'd rather have a laugh with her in the scullery than be bored to death by all the privileged bimbos in their chintzy drawing rooms.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    I have to go with Susanna. She's fueled by love for her husband to be, but she's an independent sort who is more likely to speak her mind. She also seems very playful. Even if there wouldn't be love, I could definitely get along with Susanna as a friend.

    In addition - I think she is probably of all of them - possesses the most feminine charm. She drives the count virtually insane with desire and Figaro mad with jealousy - plus her music - notably the act 4 aria - is seductive to say the least.
