Okay I'm thinking about writing a story where a guy is trying to start his life over or is on a mission of redemption. One idea is where he doesn't remember his past another is where he does and is trying to be a better person. Anyway I'm thinking about having him be a character that doesn't openly show remorse and doesn't apologize because the way he see's it he did what he did and even though he regrets it he sees no point in apologizing because it wont change anything and apologizing and asking for forgiveness would be an insult to his victims. He's essentially a rapist and a murderer. So is this a good idea also is better that he remembers or gets his memory back? I think it's better for him to remember because I feel the amnesia thing might be perceived as a cop out.
