Annnnnyway, there is something kind of awesome in that character throwing himself cheerfully into harms way and basically saying, "Yeah, I'm the guy who is always going to get stabbed/bitten/stabbed again/thrown off a building/oh, more stabbings?" because that is my role, and you know what? I AM GOING TO OWN THAT AND THROW MYSELF INTO IT WITH CONVICTION!"
*Seriously; there is a reason that a subset of the fandom for that particular work is the "OHNO, JAMES!" club.
