I am looking for traits and characteristics, personality-wise, physically, and mentally, for a real-world, very believable anti-Christ figure. Also, some history and background ideas would be very welcome too. Maybe like what he did in his childhood, what he was like growing up, notable events and actions when he was a young adult, etc. Now, there are many ways to come up with a good anti-Christ character I am sure, so all suggestions are welcome, but I want to avoid too many special powers, magical mind-control abilities, etc. I am angling for a character which is real-world based, but who still has a otherworldly mystique about him (or possibly her?). This anti-Christ will herald the coming of the Apocalypse and all of that, but he will mainly do this with normal, albeit extraordinary, abilities, like really high intellect, sociopathic charm, etc. I was kind of inspired by the left behind series, and how popular that was among the Christian community, I mean those books sold like hotcakes. I actually don't own any of those books, but a friend had lent one of them to me on high recommendation a while ago and I just perused it, didn't really read it. It was mainly by two authors, if memory serves, so it is like a bi-author series. I am thinking if I were to write a novel with this main character, it would be much more in line with the mystery/thriller/suspense type genre. Much more secular, with an action/adventure aspect. I like the idea as well of an introspective first person narrative interspersed with third person main narrative.
