There are some characters on television that just remain pure and wholesome no matter what the world throws at them. Despite the drama going on around them, they manage to stay true to themselves and their morals.
These characters always put others before themselves and try their best to do the right thing even when it's not easy. Honestly, they're just the type of people you want to wrap in a blanket and protect from harm.
Here are 27 wholesome characters with those good-natured characteristics who we think deserve the world.
Barry Allen - The Flash
Barry Allen may be the fastest man alive, but he's also the cutest. His quirky and kind traits make him one hell of a superhero as he actually cares about every single person that he's saving. Barry doesn't just see heroes and villains -- he sees people and always looks for the best in them.
Jake Peralta - Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Some may say he's a little over the top at times, but that's just one of the things that make Jake great. He is absolutely adorable and Jake wouldn't be who he is without his pure heart and desire to the right thing.
Kira Yukimura - Teen Wolf
Kira is the most polite badass I have ever seen. She can kill you with kindness and then actually kill you if you threaten her friends. She was the sweetest and one of the most endearing characters on Teen Wolf, and she deserved a lot better than being left in the desert with the Skinwalkers only to never be seen or heard from again.
Prince Charming - Once Upon a Time
Prince Charming, otherwise known as David Nolan in Storybrooke, is probably one of the few portrayals of princes that's actually deserving of the name. Charming always wanted what was best for his family and would sacrifice himself at a moment's notice if it meant keeping others safe.
Clay Jensen - 13 Reasons Why
Clay deserves so much better than the hand he's been dealt. The death of Hannah who he loved, will haunt him forever and it seems he's always going to feel like he's partially to blame. He would do anything to get justice for her and even puts his life on the line to stop others from making life-changing mistakes. He's just an all-around kind soul who's full of love and compassion.
Janet - The Good Place
Janet may be a computer who's programmed to be good, but that doesn't change the fact that she is indeed wholesome and pure. It's hard not to want happiness for someone so incredibly warm-hearted.
Sam Hanna - NCIS LA
Sam is just an all around good guy that deserves everything out of life. Despite the tragedies that continue to hit him, he's always taking care of others no matter the cost to himself.
Spencer Reid - Criminal Minds
Reid brings something special to Criminal Minds. Although he has his share of internal struggles, he does his best to work through them and fight for the common good.
Jessica Day - New Girl
Jess is an actual ray of sunshine who would do anything for anyone. Her bubbly personality and her huge heart make it impossible not to love her. When Jess was sad, we were sad. And when she was happy we were ecstatic for her. She deserves everything that life has to offer and it was incredible to watch her get all she ever wanted.
Quentin Coldwater - The Magicians
Quentin started off as a pretty lonely character but was always kind to those around him and had everyone's best intentions at heart. Although he had his fair share of fears and struggles, at the end of the day Quentin just wanted to do the right thing no matter the cost to himself.
George O'Malley - Grey's Anatomy
There's so many amazing things I could say about George but I'm just going to sum it up in a quote from Richard Webber. "George O'Malley jumped in front of a bus today. He knew what he was doing and he did it anyway. And he did it to save a life." There's really no arguing with that.
Waverly Earp - Wynonna Earp
Besides being unbelievably cute, Waverly Earp is also unbelievable kind. Didn't you hear? She's the nicest person in Purgatory. There was a vote. She even got a sash. I didn't see those poll results, but I'm pretty sure not a single person voted against her.
James Olson - Supergirl
James has been one of Supergirl's best characters from day one. He doesn't only care about the big things, but he pays attention to the little things too. He's always there for his friends no matter the circumstances, and the thing he wants most in the world is to make a difference. James Olson truly is a hero.
Magnus Bane - Shadowhunters
Magnus Bane only knows the word give. The only taking he ever does is everyone else's pain and suffering into himself. Whenever Downworlders come knocking at his door, Magnus will do everything in his power to keep them safe from harm. His heart is absolutely humongous and he deserves to be protected from everything bad in the world.
Sutton Brady - The Bold Type
Ever heard of characters being referred to as a cinnamon roll? Well, that's exactly what The Bold Type's Sutton Brady is. She may have had a hard time standing up for herself in the beginning, but Sutton has proved that she will do what it takes to fight for what she wants. She's extremely polite and soft-hearted and will always be a helping hand to those who need it.
Marshall Eriksen - How I Met Your Mother
If you think this picture is an exaggeration of Marshall's personality, guess again. Marshall Eriksen is the kind of person you strive to be or strive to be with. He is caring, compassionate, an aspiring environmental lawyer, and undyingly loyal to his wife Lily. No matter how much time passed on the show, he always stayed true to who he was and fought for what was right.
Monty Green - The 100
Monty is one of the few characters on The 100 who managed to remain virtuous on a post-apocalyptic planet. All Monty wants is to put an end to all the killing and have peace even if it means surrendering. He's smart, loyal, and just wants everyone to live together in harmony.
Teddy Flood - Westworld
Teddy was a lot more than what he was programmed to be. His main focus was always to just be a hero and do what needs to be done. When his programming was changed making him become a more ruthless version of himself, it led to his tragic end.
Jane Villanueva - Jane the Virgin
Jane is one of those characters who are full of light and love. She cares deeply about those around her and would do just about anything for her family and friends. Who wouldn't want a girl like this looking out for them?
Josh Rosza - The Originals
Josh has always been an incredibly supportive and loyal character. He's continued to grow as the series has gone on and learned to stand up for himself, yet he doesn't let that derail him from showing kindness and compassion to those in need of it.
Toni Topaz - Riverdale
Don't let the badass serpent jacket and motorbike scare you off. Toni Topaz is a giant softie who deserves nothing but love and unconditional support. She has a never-ending loyalty for Cheryl and the serpents and her kind heart is something that is too easily overlooked. Even though Toni is not in the best situation herself, the needs of her friends always come before her own.
Conrad Hawkins - The Resident
Don't let his tough exterior scare you off. Dr. Conrad Hawkins may be strict with the other residents but it's just because he wants everyone to be the best they can be. Conrad cares for his patients deeply and would do just about anything to make sure they're safe and healthy.
Nick - The Handmaid's Tale
Nick is a character that defenitly has a lot on his plate. He is constantly torn in multiple different directions but it all comes for his desire to do the honorable thing. His love for Offred is a driving force behind a lot of Nick's actions and we just want everything to work out for him so he can have the life he deserves.
Leslie Knope - Parks and Recreation
Leslie Knope is the definition of extra and we wouldn't change a thing about it. Parks and Rec would be pretty colorless without her presence. Even though her co-workers may take advantage of it at times, she would do anything for anyone and not think twice about it.
Tommy Merlyn - Arrow
Tommy is an example of another character who deserved nothing but happiness and only received pain. His tragic family life aside, things were never smooth sailing for him. Tommy wanted to work hard and make a name for himself outside of his father's toxicity. Just when things were finally turning around for him, he was killed saving the life of Laurel, the girl he loved. And nope we are still not over it.
Glenn Rhee - The Walking Dead
Glenn Rhee is a sunshine who should've existed before zombies took over the world and that's all there is to it. He touched everyone's lives on the show and they all would have been dead countless times over without him. We can't help but hope that Glenn will stay true to his final words and find Maggie, even if it's in the next life. Wherever he is, he deserves complete happiness.
Nate Archibald - Gossip Girl
Nate was that character that you just wanted to whisk away from all the insane drama. And yes, he may have been the cause of it at times, but really Nate just wanted everyone to be happy and honest with each other. Unlike the rest of his friends, Nate was kind to everyone whether they were from the Upper East Side or Brooklyn. While a lot of things may have changed over the course of the show, Nate's compassion never wavered.
