“One Tree Hill” continues to be a cult classic, and a huge reason for that is the incredible cast of characters throughout the nine-season series. Choosing a single favorite character is nearly impossible, but there's likely one character you've really resonated with. Learn what your favorite character says about you.

Check out our video for the short version of this article:

Lucas Scott

It's crystal clear throughout the series that Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray) is a literature junkie. From his poignant voice-overs featuring lines from classic novels, to his pursuit of his own writing career, Lucas is bound to resonate with someone who also has a visceral love for literature. You may consider yourself a bit of an intellectual and enjoy finding deeper meanings, not only in the stories you read, but also in your life.

Nathan Scott

Throughout the series, Nathan Scott (James Lafferty) has one of the best character arcs. The person he is at the start of the show is a far cry from who he ends up being (in the best way possible). If you found yourself drawn to Nathan, you've made mistakes and have had to learn from your experiences. You welcomed those mistakes, however, and you know that they helped you grow into the person you are now.

Peyton Sawyer

There are two primary reasons Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton) resonated with you: music or trauma. Partially inspired by the real-life actress, Peyton has a huge love for music that spans across genres. It's a core part of her being and if you were always looking to listen to the songs and artists she gushed over, you shared that same passion.

On the other hand, Peyton dealt with some pretty heavy trauma in the series, from dealing with a stalker, to facing the death of a parent. You likely found solace in Peyton's story as a mirror to reflect that you weren't alone. She feels like more than just a character to you and rather like a close friend.

Haley James Scott

A multifaceted character, Haley James Scott (Bethany Joy Lenz) featured many core parts of her personality. She was a musician, a teacher, a mother, a wife, and an incredible friend. If you relate to Haley, you don't consider yourself to be just one thing. You have many things you're passionate about, and watching Haley take on every one of her passions in a way that doesn't burn her out is super relatable.

Brooke Davis

Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush) was the ultimate girl boss before the phrase was mainstream. It's easy to relate to Brooke because she has a fierce independence that drives her to follow her dreams and push naysayers aside. Whether or not you're interested in fashion like Brooke, you recognize the power it takes to work for something you want.

Dan Scott

The ultimate villain and one of the worst parents on “One Tree Hill” is Dan Scott (Paul Johansson), and if you can't help but feel drawn to his character, don't worry. It probably doesn't mean you're also a manipulative psychopath. You might have an intense interest in what makes bad people tick. You're the type of person who listens to true crime podcasts on repeat, eager to learn everything you can about the perpetrator to understand why they are the way that they are. It's why you're so intrigued by Dan's character.

Julian Baker

Being nostalgic is woven into your personality if you feel most connected to Julian Baker (Austin Nichols). His character has a fantastical quality that yearns to find pivotal moments from classic cinema in everyday life. Much like Julian, you've been inspired by movies from your youth and continue to watch them on repeat. You're nostalgic for the past and try to recreate those feelings of bliss in your adult life.

Clay Evans

While Clay Evans (Robert Buckley) certainly had serious storylines on the show, the character had a fun-loving quality to him that you couldn't help but adore. You enjoy surrounding yourself with people who are humorous and spontaneous, and that's likely the type of person you are as well. You strive to be a person that brings joy to others, and you look forward to engaging in exciting activities with your loved ones.

Quinn James

The older sister of Haley James Scott, Quinn James (Shantel Van Santen) is the type of woman you can depend on. If you related to her, it's because that's the type of person you are for others. You're not one to allow people to walk all over you, but you’ll support those close to you. You're the first one to jump in if a friend or family member needs help. You've been known to drop what you're doing for the sake of someone else.
