In Final Fantasy XIII Episode Zero -Promise- it's said that Hope believes his father no longer keeps the promises he makes to him and his mother let alone listens to them, viewing work as more important than family. All Hope can remember about the last time he began a conversation with his dad was how Bartholomew brushed him aside. His speech is normally reserved but he has outbursts when his emotions get the best of him.
His naivety makes him quick to blame others for his misfortunes, and he is affected by harsh words and rash actions, especially when they involve personal subjects. Besides coming from an upper class family and having little knowledge of how the world works, Hope has no battle experience and fears confrontation, and thus tries to flee from a fight when he has the chance. Hope is also shown to be very smart and insightful, able to deduce things from his observations.
Though confused by her cheerful demeanor, Hope initially turns to Vanille for emotional support and protection as she comforts him on the horrid situation he's plunged into.
He later depends on Lightning as a surrogate mother figure and mentor when he comes to idolize her and tries to follow her example.
As they travel together, trust develops between them and they confide in each other. Under Lightning's tutelage, Hope matures into an efficient fighter and confident individual in control of his emotions.
He becomes willing to throw himself into harm's way for others' sake, show his sense of humor, and comfort his friends. Advising his companions and remaining positive in dire situations, Hope ultimately lives up to his namesake as he, in a way, becomes the spiritual leader of the group and gives hope to his friends. In Final Fantasy XIII-2, Hope has grown into an intelligent and confident leader, admired by many, but continues to show moments of vulnerability whenever he reflects on his past experience as a l'Cie.
His personality is still that of an adult, though his emotions have been sapped, distancing him from the woes of the world below.

He has become emotionally disconnected from his memories, remembering past events as though he wasn't there. He still trusts and cares about Lightning, supporting her and promising to be on her side no matter what decisions she makes.

Hope's class took pictures with their toy cameras as they learned about the scenery and wildlife, and returned to a lake's shore for lunch.
When Kai wanted to take a picture for his younger brother Hal, he realized he had dropped his camera to a path that had been closed off. The trio slipped past the researchers cleaning up the main route but got lost. Following advice from his father, Hope used a sharp rock to mark a boulder to designate their starting position. I liked her look. I liked her attitude. She was missing from 2 mostly, and I have yet to run into her in 3, but I know I will.
Looking forward to it. I'm one of the rare people who liked her in XIII.Final Fantasy XIII - 050 - Vanille's Regret. Sazh's Sorrow.
She brought a sense of lightness and hope. Plus she had Death, which made a lot of fights super easy for me.

Like Fang, she was missing from 2, but it looks like she's fallen into darkness in 3. It appears that she wasn't able to keep her cheerfulness in light of the end of the world and it has become to consume her.
At least, that's what I'm guessing based on the glimpses I've seen of her so far.
In 3, he's back to being a kid in appearance, but he's still a man mentally. He's taken on the role of in-game adviser. He's not annoying in anyway so farbut unlike Lightning, I can believe that his emotions have been taken away as he is very mission-focused most of the time. He was amusing in XIII.
That fight with the Cactuar was great, and he had a nice little cameo in 2.
