Recessive Evil Trait
If a family, race, demographic, etc, is always chaotic evil, any exceptions will likely still be rather unpleasant to speak with.

It's a noticeable tendency in fiction that when you have some group that's pretty much exclusively evil, any exceptions to this rule aren't likely to be the most pleasant of people.

Expect to see this character's heritage manifest, not in lying, cheating, stealing, or anything particularly villainous, but in rudeness, cynicism, irritability, snarkiness, and brooding.

A sweet and pleasant exception to Always Chaotic Evil is hard to come by, and anything like Incorruptible Pure Pureness coming from such a background is almost entirely unheard of.
