    I think a classic flawed yet relatable (and still technically "good" - most of the time) is Lois McMaster Bujold's Miles Vorkosigan. And if there is ever anyone you want to keep a safe distance from, it's him. Really bright, charming, hyperactive, overachieving - and so goal orientated he can be a menace to bystanders. One of the joys of that series is the reactions of some of his friends and relations.

    "People don't live on the Disc any more than <....> they live on balls. Oh, planets may be the place where their body eats its tea, but they live elsewhere, in worlds of their own which orbit very handily around the centre of their heads." Terry Pratchett, The Last Continent.
