Oedipus is the king of Thebes; he also killed his dad, slept with his mother and gouged his own eyes out. To say that Oedipus is a tragic figure is an understatement. His greatest flaw revolves around his pride which "allows him to disbelieve the Gods and hunt the source of a plague instead of looking inside himself" Gradesaver has a more detailed description to exactly what you are looking for.
