I love my muse a lot, but I recognize that he is a cocky scumbag and has more faults than he can count on his toes and fingers. He has a bad past, mostly due to his own stupidity and need to create an image of himself that matched he thought he was seeing in celebrities that were rock stars at the time. He is not meant to be a very sympathetic- he ruined his relationship with his parents with his frequent theft and often chases off all of the friends he could even have with oversexual or cocky comments.
Though I notice that he can only be sympathetic when characters who do not know him shit on him before he is able to open his mouth. ( and honestly if Akira was a mute he would probably get all the ladies, he just needs to shut his fucking mouth ). So naturally I feel he gets a slight victim complex when he gets shit on so badly by everyone around proclaiming that he has no talent and his style is shit. But most of the time I feel he is a shit bag due to his need to preserve his self esteem. There is no doubt that he has strong aspects of a histrionic personality disorder ( at least parts of it ) as well as high levels of narcissism that is highly apparent ( and with that he can take very little attacks to his esteem ) since he has a very fragile self-image and self-esteem and cannot take anything that is thrown personality at him.
