Carlisle Cullen from The Twilight Saga is a vampire who adopted a family of non-human blood drinking vampires. His journey started after being savagely attacked but his heart of gold and life of faith wouldn't let him feed on humans and he adapted to living off the blood of animals. While the Twilight series focus on the romance between Edward and Bella there would be none of that without Carlile. He turned Edward and gradually drew Edward into the life of no human blood drinking. While Alice and Jasper were already vampires before being adopted into the family the rest wouldn't exist without Carlisle.
Also I am drawn to his determination to help humans and live a life of goodness and protect his family. His willingness to help Jacob despite him being a werewolf and his ability to walk away from the Volturi despite the chance of power just solidifies my admiration and respect for this character. To me he is the Nelson Mandela of vampires and while some might gawk because he's from Twilight, no matter what you might think of the books, take a closer look at Carlisle. He might just surprise you.
Whether in the books or the movies, Carlisle Cullen, I salute you. Plus that situation in the last movie when Esme had the 'devastated face', that was so my reaction on the inside as well. On the outside I probably had Edward's shocked/alarmed face. Anyway, like I said I give Carlisle Cullen an A+ on being a truly good person.
P.S.: I will be commenting as much as I can during the challenge. Sadly due to some money woes (ish) I had to pass my laptop saving over to family members. I am being paid back but I have to start almost from scratch. Good news I have $100 US in waiting from my ghost writing client. Bad news thanks to lending out what I had I need at least $200 more for the laptop I want. But family is family and I can just bother my dad in the early morning for his laptop for a little longer. Well more like swiping it while he sleeps. But he knows and still lets me despite complaints. Good man.
