Rupert Giles in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series

Who didn’t have a crush on Giles? A Watcher with an interesting past, he dabbled in black magic and the music scene when he was younger, earning the nickname “Ripper.” Eventually he followed his destiny to prepare (and protect) Slayers like Buffy to fight the Big Bad. Giles takes librarianship seriously and charmed the pants off viewers when he monologued to fellow teacher and ladylove Jenny Calendar about the importance of books.
