About This Quiz

The hit series "Outlander" has already enjoyed four incredible seasons on Starz, bringing to life Diana Gabaldon's historical time travel romance. As showrunner Ron Moore noted, the books represented a particularly difficult challenge when it came to adapting them for TV. They take place in multiple periods and cultures in the past, from postwar Britain to the time of the clans in the Scottish Highlands, from pre-Revolutionary France to colonial America. They were written in the 1980s, meaning that they can seem somewhat out of date, and elements around race, feminism and colonialism had to be updated for the modern screen.

Still, the producers pulled it off, and the result is a beautiful show that features believable characters who remain relatable in spite of their thoroughly improbable situation. Indeed, it's these characters who make time really fly. Even as Claire struggles to survive in 18-century Scotland, she acquires not just a husband in the form of the studly Jamie, but also true friends and eventually a bold and beautiful daughter - and we all root for them all to survive and even thrive!

At heart, "Outlander" is all about how there are many kinds of strength and courage, from fighting for a cause to holding fast to the truth even when you know people think you're crazy, from running away when you must to risking it all for love when you can. That means no matter who you are, "Outlander" contains a character who embodies the sort of hero you have inside you. Which of them are you? Let's find out!
