My Bonnie and Clyde-style story isn't just about the two main characters (as well as a "third wheel") flying around the galaxy on a crime spree. It also ties into corruption, gangs and space piracy. Many gangs want the team dead for interfering with their business so the team end up having to flee authorities, bounty hunters and gang members whilst trying to bring down some of the criminal empires. After all, if they wipe out the person who's placed the bounty on their heads then there isn't a bounty to collect. One of the members of a criminal gang, while he isn't the main antagonist in the story he is the "scummiest" out of all the gang leaders, the kind of person who'd kill his own mother if it would keep him in power just a little longer. There's really only one element to this character that makes me think I may be stooping too low to create a character who is for a lack of better words a total dick. I was considering making him a paedophile. It's not something that gets a lot of focus as it's only mentioned once or twice in passing but is mainly used at one part in the story to blackmail him as if he was found out he would lose support (people who are involved in piracy, trafficking and drugs have to draw the line somewhere). Not to mention the fact that the self-appointed ruler of Valhalla (the largest and most notorious colony on Mars) will probably have him flayed alive if word gets to her (again, she has to draw the line somewhere) It's also a display of power by the main antagonist, showing that they have eyes and ears everywhere. If I am indeed stooping too low to create a completely unlikeable character, what other relevant material could I use to blackmail a crime lord (especially with Mars being the scummiest place in the galaxy)?
