Well, but that's exactly what he does not! In ASB for example he CURSES all the time, while in DKR he STILL plays a kind of father figure and tells that kid who was going to curse something "Watch your language, son".
There is no consistency in this series. He jumps from an optimistic "Robin Hood"-type (Year One) into a berzerking madman (ASB) into a hard-as-nails-vigilante (DKR).
