Basically, I'm starting to think Heridon Copper is more of an anti-hero than I previously expected. He does things his way, he won't do anything unless it best suits him or his interests. For example, if a little girl who was part of the mystery he was solving got kidnapped, he's not going to do a damned thing except let the cops handle it. This, despite some of his friends telling him he has to go after her. However, by having his cousin be kidnapped as well, it gives him a motive even though it's more "save my cousin, the other girl's just secondary". If the girl's the daughter of a professor or supervisor that's treated him like shit, he's going to balk if someone tells him to go after her and, again, he'll only actually go after her if his cousin was in mortal peril as well. (if not his cousin, then one of his friends or his love interest.) As he describes himself, "I'm a cynical bastard who thinks being a 'hero' is boring, and if I'm gonna get anything done, I do it my way and don't worry about what anyone else thinks. I don't care about their problems. The only thing I'm concerned with are myself, my family, and my friends. The rest do not matter...much." Of course, he does have his pluses, but this is basically what I see of him. Is this what you'd define an anti-hero? Or is Heridon just insane? What other ways could I make him an anti-hero? Thoughts? BONUS: If it helps, I picture him as a college-aged, non-medical equivalent of Dr. House, except without a cane.
