Re: How would you roleplay a LE?
Everything of importance that you do has an ulterior motive.
That noble's daughter you rescued from the gnolls? Yeah, daddy now owes you a big favor. The donation to the orphanage? Makes you look like the good guy and hey, elections for mayor are coming up. The secretary you've spent the last two months seducing? Sure, the sex is nice, but it's really to get into her bosses' tax records.
People are either a means to an end, or an obstacle to be removed. Society is a system that you learned to take advantage of while staying within its parameters.
Note: This does not stop you from having real friends, morals, or a cause to believe in. In fact, those things may very well be something that motivates your behavior (which doesn't make it any less "wrong").
