My Monique was adopted as a declawed cat about a year and a half ago.
All of my other cats have their claws. There is never any worry about Monique getting hurt around here as she tends to be a bit of an ornery cuss and all the guys pretty much give her wide berth.
I think attitudes go more on a cat by cat basis and don't see why you should have any problems, especially since you would be bringing a male in with the females. She showed her haughtiness when I went to pick her up and has been showing it ever since. My male Maine Coon mix came from the same rescuer and he also has a bit of a high and mighty attitude.
Monique loves to come in and lay on my chest at bedtime and mix her little heart out. I usually have to fend off her kisses because she can get carried away.
I don't think you would need to worry at all about your declawed cat getting hurt by the others or being loving toward you if that is in the cats nature.
My Jade, (declawed), that came to me as a stray was a very loving cat and so was Samantha, (rescued declaw). Jade lived with me by herself and Samantha with many of my crew I have now. Both girls were very loving and attached to me.
I say go for it and give that guy the wonderful love he deserves.
