Favorite arospec characters? (canon or headcanoned)

Title says it all.

Personally I unfortunately don't really know about canonically arospec characters, but I love making headcanons. I headcanon Marie and Agent 3 from Splatoon as arospec because of their very aro color pallette, and because it seems to fit them. Another one is Berdly from Deltarune because to me he seems like he's trying to make himself be into romance, if that makes sense?

Anyways, what are some of your favorite arospec characters and headcanons? I'd love to hear about them!

Princess Merida from "Brave" is one of my go-to's for aro-spec headcanons, and I wanna say Isabela from "Encanto" as well. And I haven't thought about this in specifics, but I've just finished reading the "Tea Dragon Society" series, and I'd picture Rinn and Aedhan as being in a QPR. 

Canonically speaking, Georgia from "Loveless" is an aro character who's self-discovery is the main premise of the book.

I headcanon Diana from Anne with an E as an aro and she is a great character. When she get in her relationship with Jerry, she seems to only like it because of the feeling of freedom it gave her at first, as she knew it was something her parents would forbid. The actress said herself she played it this way. Plus Diana soon felt trapped in the relationship, and they broke up soon because of that.

I also headcanon Jack Frost from the Rise of the Guardians (an animated movie that deserves more attention). Which makes me laugh a lot of people ship him with Elsa from Frozen (despite them not being of the same franchise), and Elsa is also a common headcanon for aro. The thing is, in the movie, the fairy is totally attracted to Jack, but he seems to have no clue what's going on and to see her as a friend.

And I almost forgot : Merlin from... Merlin. The fandom is all about him and Arthur, but that's not canon and as far I'm concerned, he sent 5 seasons without a love interest even of he is the main character.

These are not exactly major medias, but they are what I'm very into atm!

Billy Bones from Black Sails is heavily coded as aroace. Most people just say asexual, but I think that's the unfortunate link of asexual = no relationship ever. I headcanon Miranda Barlow as alloaro, personally! She's shown as sexually very free, especially as a woman in the 1700s, and she definitely loves the two men in her life (Spoilers for Black Sails: 

Spoiler

Her husband, Thomas Hamilton, is gay, and she fully knows this. She acts as his beard, and they are incredibly good friends. She gets a new squeeze, James McGraw, and they have a regular affair with Thomas in the know. Eventually James falls for Thomas, and they have a romantic and sexual relationship. I interpret Miranda as someone who happily has sex with friends (or strangers!) but don't really want a romantic relationship.

Then there's the Terror (2018). This is purely a headcanon, but I read Harry Goodsir as aro. Sometimes non-SAM, sometimes alloaro. I fully project my own Complicated Aro Feelings™ on him through my fics, hah. The characters in Terror are fun to play around with sexuality and gender wise, but aro!Harry is one i hold onto.

I actually have a list in my notes where I keep track of all canonically aro-spec characters I know. That's how it is currently:

- Musa Faris, aromantic asexual, one of the main characters from Buuza!!, by Shazleen Khan (I love him)

- Walker Anderson, aromantic asexual, main character from Wandering, by pearsfears

- Landon Addison, demiromantic pansexual, one of the main characters from This Is Not Fiction, by Nicole Mannino

- Kim Koizumi, aromantic asexual, main character from Chroma Key, by Brandon Dumas

- Georgia Warr, aromantic asexual, main character from Loveless, by Alice Oseman (already mentioned by aroace_auncle)

And I personally headcanon Alma from Charity Case, by Malacandrax, as aromantic. I don't have many arguments, I just sense an aro vibe from them, and honestly, I think they're really cool, and I want to be like them, so I like to read them as aro like me... Also, I mean, Alma is the only (relevant) character in the story who isn't romantically interested in anyone, so I wouldn't be surprised if the author said they're actually aro-spec.

@Holmbo of Billy Bones? i'd have to look through the series to find the specific scene, but i could easily do that! he unfortunately has no aro-specific scene like the ones in the vid, which is why people tend to say he's just ace, but i could send you the specific episode + timestamp of that. i don't think the clip is easily available online anywhere.
