His character :

Diogenes is a rather strange character and difficult to define. Indeed, it has two facets very different from each other. The first is adventurous, free and excessive, while the second is thoughtful, reserved and introspective. Despite this somewhat complicated mixture, Diogenes is a stubborn man with a militant morality. He is also able to devote himself to causes that are important to him. Having a strong confidence in him, he does not shrink from any obstacle.
Not very emotional, Diogenes is perfectly capable of controlling his emotions. At the same time, he often finds it difficult to express his feelings despite his passionate side.
