Thanks for the welcome! And for letting me know how to join Team Edward. Apologies, but I am REALLY new to posting and such, let me know if I do something dumb please. I won't be offended.

She would always need him in some way, and therefore he would be there for her.
I think you are spot on about this. Just because you're a grown up, doesn't mean you don't need your Daddy sometimes.

Mine neither! I'm trying to get him to read Twilight so he can get some tips from Edward...so far, losing battle.

I think he felt useless sitting at home while his fellow countrymen and others were doing in the war. I think he wanted to help those he could, and try to bring some justice and moral into the war.
That's a good point. I don't think his morality changed much after he became a vampire. And he was young and idealistic, with the I'm-indestructible complex most teenage boys seem to have. It is interesting to contemplate his father, though, and how much of an impact he had on Edward's personality and beliefs.
