He's always had a rather hot-blooded personality and wasn't ever able to get a handle on his emotions. While most would think this a dangerous facet for others, the simple truth of the matter is that it really only hurts him and his relationships with other people. He doesn't always set out in the morning, hellbent on being an asshole. It just kind of... Happens. It doesn't help that there are those who fear and/or despise him on principle without even getting to know him first. When x number of people treat you like crap, you tend to lose faith in people. He had a tiny bit of faith remaining in people until his wife took his kids and left him but then that faith was lost and in its place, there was nothing but anger, resentment, and bitterness.
Beneath his bluster and rough edges, he's a sweet man who's hurting. Nobody seems to recognize that side of him, however. Of course, he's over giving people chances. He doesn't see the point in giving people chances when all they do is screw it up. He doesn't seem to be up-to-date on the goings on in town and usually seems fairly distant. Some would argue that the word distant doesn't begin to describe what he is and how he acts. Some might even go so far as to say he's a cold-hearted bastard who only cares about himself.
The thing people don't seem to get about him is that he's just scared of being hurt and left behind. It happened once already, so what's to say it won't happen again? He has a tendency to zone out during the middle of conversations, also, which doesn't help his case any. He focuses too heavily on his past mistakes and his regrets. As a result of that, he can have depressive episodes. He's extremely hard to get to know and those that have tried have either been eventually driven away or simpler still, given up when the going got tough... Which is, in essence, one in the same. You can't have one without having the other to some degree.
When Logan was sixteen, he met his now ex-wife. She was visiting from a faraway place, and he was helping his father with odd jobs. He loved her from the first time he saw her and knew he had to have her. They started a letter correspondence and within the span of two years, went from being pen pals to being something more. On a whim, Logan paid for her to come to Dawnbreak and within a year of her moving, he and she got hitched... Also on a whim, admittedly, but who were they to deny their feelings? What he refused to acknowledge at the time was that they were young and dumb. He just figured they loved each other and would work through the rest and sadly, he couldn't have been more wrong.
After having three daughters, he wanted a son and about that time, their marriage started falling apart... Surely, a baby would fix that and was cheaper than going to couple's counseling, right? By the time his son had been brought into the world, his wife was sick and tired of him. She took their children one night, while he was out and about, and left Dawnbreak, swearing their friends to secrecy. She never quite had the heart to divorce him so for the next few years, they remained married but separated. He even tried tracking her and the kids down for a time but with his efforts proving fruitless again and again, he gave up and resolved, instead, to be a broken man. He focused his efforts on revitalizing his father's business, instead. Maybe if he did his part, his wife would come back to him... And maybe pigs would fly, too.
