"I am not altogether on anybody's side, because nobody is altogether on my side"
True Neutral characters are those who prefer to just "stay out of it". That is to say that in big conflicts between good and evil True Neutral characters try to remain well, neutral, as much as possible. That said they are NOT completely ambivalent and uncaring. True Neutral characters WILL pick a side if they are forced to, and usually side with good over evil (since the average person would rather have a good person looking after them than an evil one). But they do not set out to do good the way a good character does, nor do they set out to be cruel or callous the way an evil character does. In essence True Neutral characters are a more mild and innocent Neutral Evil in that they are chiefly self-interested, but not to a ruthless, cruel, or well, evil degree. They're out for their own and do not like to get involved if at all possible with either good or evil, but again will usually side with the former if forced.
