Okay, so my main protagonist is a genetically modified soldier. He was born on a planet that was basically a giant scientific research facility. His father stole and stored the latest combat technology into him just before he died and did not atatch him to the system. But when the protagonist finds this out he is too deeply in love with a girl to care about the fact that the world around him was an illusion, he just wanted to stay safe with her. She wants him to use his strength to help the people of neon. And when a security bot manages to track him down she gets killed in the crossfire which makes him determined to live up to her wish. Basically from there he saves neon then goes on into my fictional universe to complete more obligational tasks. but he has no drive, after seeing the love of his life die before his eyes as well as killing the amount of people he'd killed he doesn't show his emotions at all. I want people to be able to like my character but also be able to keep his "pokerface" element. So that later on in the story when he finds his drive and he pushes his body and his sanity to the edge to achieve it that there's a noticeable difference.
