Quotes: Character Alignment

Nine distinct alignments define all the possible combinations of the lawful-chaotic axis with the good-evil axis. Each alignment description below depicts a typical character of that alignment. Remember that individuals vary from this norm, and that a given character may act more or less in accord with his or her alignment from day to day. Use these descriptions as guidelines, not as scripts.

Rimmer: Looks like I'll have to rescue him. (Referring to Lister, from an alternate timeline in which he's rich, famous and extremely happy)
Holly: "Rescue him".
Rimmer: It's my duty! My duty as a complete and utter bastard!

"It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."

Legend: So where do you stand, then? Where do you see yourself in terms of the sliding scale of good and evil, heroes and villains?
Skitter: (laughing) All of the above? None of the above? Does it matter? Some of us wear the villain label with pride, because they want to rebel against the norms, because itís a harder, more rewarding road to travel, or because being a Ďheroí often means so very little. But few people really want to see themselves as being bad or evil, whatever label they wear. Iíve done things I regret, Iíve done things Iím proud of, and Iíve walked the roads in between. The sliding scale is a fantasy. Thereís no simple answers.
