Symptoms of a sociopath are pathological lying, lack of remorse, incapacity of love, need for stimulation, lack of empathy, juvenile delinquency, unreliability, criminal or entrepreneurial versatility, and shallow emotions. (Humphrey, p. 1) People like this can seem like any ordinary person, making friends, having relationships, but to them the people they interact with are just objects, not people with emotions or feelings. A person is not always born a sociopath, it can be manifested during childhood through random acts of cruelty which build into a mental disorder. It is extremely difficult to judge if someone is a sociopath because on the surface they act just like everyone else. They can be extremely charming but this is only an act to benefit themselves in the future.

"He ashamed, and wants to tell her so, but it's not for him to apologize. He hasn't earned the right" (Page 176) - I found this quote to be significant because I felt that it showed Dragan's character and how the guilt had built up within him. It showed us how Dragan felt remorse for what happened to Emina but he also felt that he wasn't worthy enough to own up to it. He felt that since he never helped her, well she was shot. So he feels he's unworthy of showing her, his remorse because he never tried to help her in the first place.

A Byronic hero is someone that exhibits emotions and excessive moodiness which Gatsby often does when Daisy does not claim to have never loved Tom. A Byronic hero is also someone that is a loner.
