He risks screwing up his relationship with his daughter so that he can protect Rose and her son for Raiden's sake. And in the end, he usually disobeys orders or ignores protocol so that he can help Snake. --- Underwater Spartans: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUhjsL2tOkA

I'd say Raiden was a pretty nice guy especially in MGS2. He had to put up with a lot of BS with Rose and Emma, Snake and Otacon kept lying to him and yet he stuck by them, and I think he felt genuinely bad when Olga was killed by Solidus not to mention the fact that he refused to kill the president after he revealed all. But it wasn't just his actions neither; to me he just seemed like a genuinely nice guy. All that despite his rough past too.
But it seems like that's what made him so naive too. He was so focused on being a noble hero and always intent on doing the right thing that it became so easy for others to walk all over him. Nice guys finish last I guess. In MGS4 he was a lot darker and depressed. His actions were right but his demeanor was changed. --- "I loved being in the boy scouts. We went to 'Nam." - Rich Hall
