Character: the X-but-Y game

With the limited number of words available in a synopsis characters often get reduced to a three word contraction X-but-Y. Some of mine have included, ‘ballsy but vulnerable’, ‘polite but determined’, ‘kind but neurotic’. Don Quixote might be ‘intelligent but mad’; Hamlet’s father, ‘angry but dead’; and if David Cameron were a fictional character, ‘be-suited but pink’.
Have a go.
