CELIBATE HEROES - Updated June 3 2011 - NOT VIRGIN HEROES!!! (There are seperate threads for virgin heroes)
Help me compile a list of celibate heroes. I am mostly interested in those heroes who are celibate because of their love for the heroine and they cannot see themselves with anyone but her (during their seperation). Other reasons for being celibate are OK as well.
