Sorry, I hope you won't mind me for quoting but I have a reason to voice out
Roy does not make friends and allies easily. This is made abundantly clear in both the anime and the manga. Most people just don't like him, because either of having the torture of having to have had worked with him, his attitude, or the fact that he definitely puts on th air of someone who only wants a promotion.
From what I understand Roy's character in the manga/series, he is someone who doesn't easily show his emotions except to Riza Hawkeye. Since he's not a major character (or just say his role swelled through the story), there's little proof of him showing his full character.
Yes, Winry and Sheska aren't close to Roy and thus there's a reason for them to judge him negatively. In the end, I guess Sheska won't judge him as negatively as before since she knows that, [spoiler]Roy was hospitalised in episode 51 and before that, he did gave her a hint that he would avenge Hughes' death, which is by browsing his Hughes' records.[/spoiler]
As a high-ranking military man, he does have a rather, cocky
attitude. His hunger for promotions and stuffs.. clearly shows his motive that he wants to become the Fuhrer. Thus, he needs those promotions. [spoiler]In the episodes, Roy's reason for a promotion was to change way Amestris runs, basically to stop the war, this is a promise he made to Hughes. In the manga, his reason was quite the same, but I think he made this promise to Riza[/spoiler] IMPOV, being a high-ranking military officer you won't expect him to show or lose control of his emotions in front of everyone right?
It would be inappropriate(sp?)!
Deep down inside, Roy is a man with good heart. He does cares for everyone but he doesn't show it. This may be because he's bounded by the fact that he's a military officer whom had been sent to Ishbal war and became a
hero out there.. He does
cares for everyone, especially Riza.. There are lots of hints but I guess everyone knows it..
EDIT : FullmetalRaptor
, I really hope you don't mind. After all, I'm "counter-attacking" your view and I understand some people may not like it. Anyway, everyone do have their own rights to voice out their view.. Once again, I'm so sorry
I hope its alright with you..
