I recently read Stark/Westklake's fifth Parker book, THE SCORE (where they hold up an entire town) and Grofield sort of works that way with Parker
(the stone thief, not the writer). We've talked about Parker's badassedness and sociopathy. He doesn't need anyone to help him steal, torture or kill. Grofield's a lighter character, provides some comic relief, and seems to have more morals, from the two books I've seen him in.
