* {{Narcissist}}: Tony obsesses over being adored and only ever helps people out of the hope that they will love him for it. When he goes rouge, he continues this behaviour, taking it up to believing he still deserves the undying worship of those around him even as he slaughters them, unable to look at people as anything more than toys for his amusement.
