To others, he may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. His feelings and loyalties run deep, but he often does not let people know how much he cares. Bruce Payne also sometimes needs to learn to relax, enjoy himself, and play.

He is definitely not one to wear his heart on his sleeve.
