Well with Rayek you can sort of understand some of his gloom...he does, after all, carry a seriously cracked out woman inside his soul/mind/body.
He seems have always been a moody and glum character, even as a child. Even his few smiles were more satisfaction and pride than joy. He was endearing in his youthful devotion to little Leetah, but he was never carefree. Sure ,now, he does have a reason for his moodiness.
To get back to Pike, considering the life he had, he is an exceptionally gentle, cheerful, even tempered, and forgiving character
