In nature, he is an antagonistic due to his antisocial tendencies. However, he excels in giving a veneer of a good boy for all adults. He seems to be a so-called all parents' dream. But only 'seems' because his peers know his real nature of a lust for manipulation and cruel games.
Some time ago, I read an article on his personality where his type was said to be like those of a character in a classical either US, or British book. It's a boy who beats up and humiliates his peers. But adults don't know about that and like him a lot thinking he is an ideal child.
The problem is that I forgot the name of that boy in a book. And since I'm not good in US / British classic literature, I can't remeber the book's title.
Could you please help me out?
