I’m working on a new project right now, and I was hoping you could all give me some input on a question I have been mulling over. When you read a book what do you want in a villain?
Do you want someone who is senselessly and inherently evil, or one that can be almost likable? Does your bad guy need a defined reason to do the things he does or can he just like being bad?
Can you form a connection and hate him or love to hate him if he has virtually no good qualities to redeem him?
I have been tossing around ideas and am really curious to see what you think.
