Okay I totally lied, and this is so embarrassing... I once loved another literary character, so much that I read it for the first time in 6th grade and STILL have the book and still read it every now and then and it's been about 13 years. That guy is Luke Muldenhower from "Don't Die My Love" (Lurlene McDaniel). I still cry every time I read it... it's about a couple in high school who are deeply in love, he ends up with cancer. It in many ways reminds me of edward and bellas journey, him keeping his secret from her and pushing her away a bit because he feels it's for the best for her to go on with her life, and her extreme optimism and naivety that they'll spend forever together and live happily ever after regardless of his condition. Truly a heartbreaker.
It's of course not in the same category as Jane Eyre literary wise, but none-the-less he stole my heart.
