** Furthermore, the television shows reveal further things, such as the travesty of war and seeing so many soliders die along with seeing his student undergo wanto cruelty and betrayal to where she refuses to rejoin the order when her name is cleared. Combine this with the stoicness and emotional control imposed by the Jedi Order and we see further how the young Skywalker became Vader.

* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher2'' portrays the elven partisan Iorveth this way. In his heart, he still dreams of building a future where the races of the Continent coexist in peace and mutual respect, but he’s become so embittered by years of fruitless struggle with humans that he often seems to be out for little more than bloodshed. He’s highly intelligent, a fact he flaunts by delivering [[ReasonYouSuckSpeech long, lyrical speeches]] in situations where a simple “fuck you” would suffice for most people. He’s also extremely handsome, with his looks marred only by the fact that the right side of his face is a mess of scar tissue swimming around an empty eye socket. Unlike protagonist Geralt, who is taciturn, aloof, and socially awkward, Iorveth is charismatic to the point that his elves hero-worship him. In contrast to Vernon Roche, the other deuteragonist, Iorveth is a figure of rebellion motivated by his internal sense of justice, whereas Roche is a man of the status quo who is motivated by his senses of loyalty and duty.

** Doctor Strange ticks all the boxes, being TallDarkAndSnarky, suave and sophisticated, charming, brilliantly intelligent, deeply arrogant, bitterly regretful for what he has had to do in the name of the greater good and riddled with self-hatred under the arrogance, and is entirely aware of what he has become.
