A reliable person

What's the descriptive word for a quality in which a person who feels reliable and courageous often because the person is strong and unshaken? This expression might be used often of men as it's traditionally a quality that's been required of men. But I think "manly" doesn't really suit the case, anybody even a dog or horse can possess this trait and or even machines (as with an SUV).

All I can think of is "reliable", which I feel very far-fetched.
