I guess this depends on which aspect of his character you look at.

On the one hand, he is appealing because of his past.  He was born poor and he has made it to the point where he can buy all these beautiful jewels.  You have to respect that.

But as far as liking him?  I can't see wanting to hang out with a guy who is so into his jewels but is not really all that nice to people.  I think he's gotten too obsessed with wealth and power and so I don't think I'd like him in person.
