By the end of season 1, I would've put Father Jack Landry from V in this spot. As season 2 progressed, I found myself enjoying Hobbes more than Jack. The great thing about Hobbes is that he's the resident bad@$$ of Erica's faction of the Fifth Column. On top of that, he's got ties to Marcus of the visitors, and that makes things more complicated for him.
Sterling is the Director of National Intelligence, but more importantly, President Martinez's most trusted asset. He didn't really register on my radar until an episode that found him fighting almost alone against the non-terrestrials during their escape from their holding compound, Inostranka. From there on out Sterling became a more compelling character in my eyes. He eventually would play a pivotal role in stopping the non-terrestrials from releasing a virus that would wipe out the human population.
Though I do enjoy Will and Biggie on Sanctuary, I think Henry entertains me the most. He is the sanctuary's tech geek, and he is an abnormal himself (sort of like a werewolf, but can control when he transforms). He provides a lot of comic relief, but he is also prone to saving the day with his tech abilities.
I did not like Greer at first, but he became more likable as the series went on. Greer is the most loyal soldier, and would do anything to help his people. We learned a bit about a troubled past as a boy, giving Greer some emotional depth that was not noticed originally. He is the number one guy you'd want by your side when going into battle.
Colonel Young was not meant to be the leader of an across the universe expedition, he was forced into the role due to unforseen events. As a military leader, he knows how to handle the troops. Unfortunately the expedition is full of not just an unprepared leader, but an unprepared crew as well. Made up of more civilians and scientists than he'd like, Young had to learn how to lead people who aren't used to military rule. Young grew as a leader as the series went on, and though still flawed, he proved to be more than adequate.
The boy genius of the Destiny expedition, Eli was thrust across the galaxy and forced to become a man almost instantly. Eli became arguably the smartest member of the crew, and helped accomplish many near-impossible tasks. At the end of the series, Eli showed his new maturity by volunteering to stay behind (and possibly sacrifice himelf) while the rest of his crew went into stasis (they were one short).
I also met Eli...
In a house full of monsters, Josh is the most human of the three of them. Though Sally (ghost) and Aidan (vampire) are monsters full time, Josh only has to deal with being a werewolf once a month. Unfortunately that still forced him to run away from home and leave behind everything he loved for fear of harming them. Now Josh does his best to keep sanity and humanity within the three-monster group.
In a show full of instability (especially among the characters), Sean was the one character you could get behind from the very beginning and follow to the end. Sean started as an ordinary young man who was getting ready to propose to his girlfriend, then suddenly was dropped right in the middle of a major conspiracy. While the President and a small group within the government faced the alien dilemma head on, Sean was learning things behind the scenes that the government didn't even have access to. He was committed to his girlfriend Leila and always did everything he could to help her. This meant a lot, considering she was kidnapped, then discovered to be half alien (paternally), then used by her own people to test a virus. Near the end of the season, Sean worked with Director of National Intelligence Blake Sterling, rogue alien Simon Lee, and assassin Vicky Roberts to stop the release of a population-destroying virus. I know, pretty ridiculous...but entertaining.
As unofficial head of discovering Destiny's mission, Dr. Rush was a brilliant man who cared almost entirely for the ship (and not the crew). At times this conflicted with leader Colonel Young, and even led to Young leaving Rush to die on a planet (unsuccessfully). Rush's only objective was to learn the purpose of the ship they discovered, as he believed it was created to discover the meaning of existence. Rush did show sympathy at times, but rarely. He did find many ways to save his crew, though more likely he was saving the ship that the crew just happened to be on.
I almost think the definition of "honor" should just show Stark's image...with one caution. He did father a child with a woman other than his wife, but that is long in the past. He has ruled with honor as the Lord of Winterfell, and is a close friend to King Robert. The Starks are now clashing with the Queen's family, the Lannisters, and things are becoming quite messy for Lord Stark. I look forward to seeing how he handles it.
