This is actually about a villain character. Recently I've been doing a villain overhaul because I felt that he lacked depth, motif and character. Frankly I'm not so sure that others can relate to him yet, but that is not something I'm worried about at this current place in time. What I do want to have considered are the things that compose his character. More so, "How does this sound to you?" for a villain. The villain is a man who fosters existential nihilistic views because his life from childhood onward has been filled with misery and constant depression; his view of living in general is that it is insufferable and in order for him to do away with it entirely, he must first bring everyone under the intense degree of agony that he feels, making their unanimous demise far more acceptable. He is a leader over a highly esteemed, advanced and technologically superior empire. He views his domain as of little gain, despite its ability to conquer all other kingdoms. The villain also selectively murders his own people to cause intense negative emotion to arise from the remaining patrons; from this he derives his fleeting, twisted pleasure. After conquering the entire inhabited world, he sets his extremely influential, malicious power out into the heavens to overrun the stars and ultimately take the universe down with him. It is fair to note that he is immortal, and has no specified age... so taking over the universe is quite possible for him, given enough time. Soo... your thoughts?
