In one early draft, the character who was to become Prince Myshkin is an evil man who commits a series of terrible crimes, including the rape of his adopted sister Nastasya Filippovnaand who only arrives at goodness by way of his conversion through Christ.

His unpleasant tendencies are offset to some extent by a mischievous sense of humour, a sharp intellect, and occasional bouts of abject self-condemnation and compassion for others.

Nastasya Filippovna orders Rogozhin to leave and hysterically demands of Myshkin that he stay with her. At the start of the book, the autobiographical heroine Selin has just arrived as an undergraduate at Harvard and is worrying about how to live.
