I don't think he was a 'dark man' at all. Just take a look at the explosion of joy when he received his Oscar for his work on alien.
But shenanigans aside, judging from the interviews he gave it seems like he was a jolly fellow. He always had a slight smirk on his face. Ridley Scott said about him that he had a warm personality, incredible generosity, and a sharp sense of humour.
