Happy Friday everyone!
Asexual Awareness week was October 20 – 26 and, as some of you may know, I identify as asexual. Representation of any kind of diversity has always been important to me, even before I realized my sexuality. In a belated celebration for Asexual Awareness week, this Friday Favorites post details a few characters that I headcanon as asexual.
Lukas (Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia)
Cool, calm, and collected, Lukas is a soldier of the Deliverance who invites the main character Alm to join the cause. While he ended up being a favorite for his personality in the game, there was a specific DLC support conversation he has with Python where Lukas confesses that he doesn’t feel the same kind of “fire” that Clive and Mathilda — the resident battle couple — has. That little nudge towards not experiencing that longing cemented Lukas as a favorite.
Miles Edgeworth (Ace Attorney series)
I adore Edgeworth’s character arc throughout the Ace Attorney series. Considering it’s canon that he’s not interested in marriage and turns down dates, he’s always been one of my favorite characters to headcanon as asexual. Focused on his work and his tight circle of friends (despite seemingly grumpy at times when he has to deal with them), Edgeworth is a character I can relate to.
Cyrus (Octopath Traveler)
Cyrus was the biggest dork in the bunch in Octopath Traveler, and he ended up amusing me to know end with his love of learning and absolute obliviousness to all the women trying to flirt with him. He was an easy character to headcanon as asexual due to said obliviousness. Even though romance wasn’t really prominent in any of the eight main characters’ paths, it was still rather nice to see a character who had no romantic inclinations whatsoever.
