Characteristics of the “Bad Guy” Antagonist
A few footnotes:
1. This list is meant to characterize an “evil” antagonist – some antagonists are perfectly decent people, and some are not even people.
2. Can also be used as a general flaws list that pertains to any character.
3. I wrote the list with masculine pronouns because English is hard, but all of these can apply to characters of any gender.
4. The four categories are just conceptual, for thought organization. Characterize freely.
Fun flaws aren’t just for bad guys.
