Just One of the Good Guys: Eddie Riggs

BT writes: You know, I’ve noticed that throughout this run of articles, I have yet to delve into the backstory of someone who is not damaged, negative, or all around depressed. We have seen a share of morose individuals, possibly due to the fact that they breed characterization and growth rather easily. Slapping a tragic past to a backstory is easy, and how the story is told can depend on the reception a character has. But what about someone who, for all intents and purposes, has no real tragic past, or at least a past that is not important to their defining characteristics? What about the all-around good guys?

Well, look no further. If you would indulge me for picking from one of my favorite games, Brutal Legend’s protagonist Eddie Riggs fits that bill like a spiked gauntlet on a headbanger. Eddie is the type of character that, truth be told, is very straightforward, but in many ways just as deep as any sullen hero can be. At least, depending on how you look at him. (Brutal Legend, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

His father left him when he was a kid, he's marginalised as a roadie and during the actual game he does some increidbly questionable things and is an utter bastard. I would not call Eddie a straight up good guy.
