In one of my stories there is this guy , very sexy , but extremely unstable - he's gullible and vulnerable , gets tricked and used ( especially blackmailed into unwanted relationships.) His past is filled with horror stories of abuse and neglect and frequently he tries to commit suicide. He's not the main character , he's the best friend of the main character. The main character is always pulled into bailing his friend out of some bizarre situation and over the course of the story the sexy guy starts to go insane. Would a reader just say - I'd wish he'd ditch this character , or maybe I wish he'd croak so that the main character can get on with his life? Is it too much?
