I'm working on a story, and it's awesome. I have cool characters, lots of angst, some action in planning.... Just one problem though: I have no villain! My story is about an alchemist, the Time Alchemist. Count Draven has cultivated a way to actually slow down time through the process of cooling the molecules in the air, thus slowing them down. He, his niece Kathryn, and his swordplay student Drake are setting off on a journey to the Archives of Esperanza, a library holding the key to the Philosopher's Stone. The journey there routes through Sanri, a desert land where alchemy is taboo. Characters include Drake's disfunctional family, the count's housekeeper, an orphan girl, an owl, and a chessmaster princess. The princess is an anti-hero, but other than that there's no solid antagonistic character. Any ideas?
