Recipe for a Perfect Villian
by Evan Parx
(Seattle, WA, USA)
1.Give him/her a reason for being the bad guy (Ex. family feud, bad childhood experience, bad luck, being cared for/ taught by a bad guy)
2.Make him/her have a distinguishable physical feature (Ex. ugly, scar, handsome/beautiful, large or small or oddly colored feature like big nose, small eyes, or red ears)
3.Make them believable, not ridiculous in your attempt to be scary.
4.Give them a cool phrase or accent.
5.Be creative -- don't just use standard villains, create your own. It can be as unexpected as you want, like a little girl or someone you think is good, especially if they are handsome/beautiful.
