Added DiffLines:

* BaseBreakingCharacter:
** Chas Dingle: Some view this character as a tragic figure, who's doing her best to keep her family together and has suffered through terrible situations whereas others see her as a woman who will put her son's happiness before anyone else, even at the cost at the people around her, takes her frustrations out unjustly on Paddy, complains at situations that are beyond her control, judgemental and hypocritical.


** Robert Sugden is a terrible human being, but knowing his family history helps understand where he comes from and why he grew to become a terrible human being. He does have a nicer, kinder side, which he shows to very few people. At this point, this circle has expanded to include his sister Victoria and his husband Aaron Livesy.
