Aromantic/Asexual characters?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know any aromantic/and or asexual characters from books, tv shows, or other forms of entertainment. I always find myself excited when I think a character might aromantic or asexual but it almost always doesn't turn out to be the case and the writers throw in some random love interest, but anyways does anyone know any? Or does anyone know any characters they think may be on the spectrum?

Yes!  Here are two I've found: 

Jack O'Malley from Widdershins (webcomic)

Jack O'Malley is canonically aro/ace, with author confirmation.  It's confirmed within the comic too.  

Storm from Survivors (book series)

My profile pic, haha.  One of the books explicitly states that she'd "never understand what made dogs want to be mates."  I love how it specifies "never", confirming that this is an asexuality thing and not just an age thing (she's a full-grown dog anyway) or because she hasn't met "the one."

Zeph from the visual novel The Elementalists (on the Pixelberry Choices app) is aro-ace.

I was so excited when I got to that part!  I also like that they gave you an option to not seek out relationships in the opening chapter...

Also, on the freeform tv show Shadowhunters, their is a character named Raphael who implies his asexuality. He is still in a romantic relationship, but during one scene he says something like “I’m just not interested in sex... I’ve always been like this.”  And I believe the writers confirmed he is ace.

however, in the book series the show is based off of, I don’t think anything is implied with that character.

Luffy from the anime/manga One Piece is most likely aro/ace. His friends are most important to him and doesn’t have any love interests. Even when the most beautiful woman who everyone falls in love with explicitly tells him that she loves him he just ignores that and continues to treat her as a friend.

Will always recommend The Deed of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon. One of my favourite books. Try it out.

I'm almost 100% certain that Sheldon from Big Bang Theory is Demiromantic Asexual.   I've been binging that show over the last couple weeks.

Victor Vale from the Villians series by V. E. Schwab was confirmed as ace in her newest book Vengeful! I definitely recommend this series, and Victor is such a great anti-hero.

I have, I watched the whole show.    I still believe he is asexual.

 

Spoiler below, so don't read if you don't want to be spoiled

Yes, I know he has sex with Amy, but some asexuals can and do have sex with their romantic partners and can enjoy it.   The fact that Sheldon seems like he's having sex mostly for Amy's benefit, and would probably be ok living his life never having sex shows me he is probably asexual.  Amy on the other hand I would say is demisexual.  

 

reference below:

Being asexual does not automatically mean you are sex repulsed and never have sex.

I've heard that the book 'Baker Thief' (cant remember the author sorry) has really good representation of an aromantic character, though I haven't read it yet. Also, Todd from the tv show Bojack Horseman is asexual.
