Lord Byron made a character type famous. This character type is the Byronic Hero. Here is a definition:
An antihero who is a romanticized but wicked character. Conventionally, the figure is a young and attractive male with a bad reputation. He defies authority and conventional morality, and becomes paradoxically ennabled by his peculiar rejection of virtue. http://web.cn.edu/kwheeler/lit_terms_B.html
Name someone in life, literature, or movies who could be a Byronic hero and explain your reasons.
