I have this very complex character in my story who I am very slowly starting to get to know. Now I have some things about which I'm not completely sure and perhaps some advice might come in hand. I see him as being insecure about himself, even though he is a well known musician and girls almost worship him so to say. The reason for being so insecure is that he always doubts if people like him for who he is or because he is well known. When he really gets to know people and get a bond with them, he tends to be selfish. As in he always wants them to spend time with him and he gets jealous when he isn't invite to a party or something. An example hereof is his sister with whom he has a very close bond. When he was younger, he would get very jealous when she had a boyfriend because it meant she would spend less time with him. I picture him, however, as someone who will do almost everything in his power to make his lover happy. He is very careful in relationships and doesn't open up easily because he is afraid to get his heart broken. He himself had never experienced a hard/horrible break-up, but his sister did. Now I was wondering if the latter doesn't contradict the selfishness and makes it less believable. Someone who can shed some light on this?
