He also made up in his mind not to kill anyone, Suigetsu even referenced him being a 'leaf ninja'. Which is a testament to his 'softness' at the time.
Also, Sasuke made it clear to Itachi that he wasn't going to kill a friend for the sake of more power, as he believed Itachi did. In retrospect, Sasuke's aim was to be everything Itachi wasn't, because he hated everything Itachi was. Like I said, had it not been for Obito.
He did kinda have a loner personality, but he was a rather gentle soul. I would say he was far from 'evil' or 'bad'.
