    Which was he more of?

    Hero?

    Or villain?

    And would you trust him to watch your back?

    * This thread obviously best avoided if you have not seen the entirety of BLAKE'S 7.

    I just think he did cold equations in his head and chose the most practical outcome.

    Not sure that pegs him as a psychopath.

    That said, as the series went on, he became quietly more and more desperate, though he would never admit that of course. Would never reach out to another human being. He had just been so hurt by Anna Grant that he was afraid to reach out anymore.

    And eventually those cold equations in his head started working against him as the decisions he made became more and more brutal to the point where he would discard the assets in his life, trading them for short term survival.

    But inside that all I think there was just just a desperate and wounded man.

    Just such a shame he cut himself off from the rest of humanity, that I think that he really yearned to join.

    You don't yearn to join humanity if you are a psychopath.

    He always kept his word too.

    I don't think many psychopaths would do that.

    I rest my (flimsy) case!
