Beautiful People: Communist ("Community")

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

I am linking up with Beautiful People today - this month we are talking about villains. I only have one villain so far, and thus, you may get to know him better than you ever wished. :)

1. What is their motive? Selfishness. Communist desires to own everything and everyone. He also has an other-worldly fear of being poor. And money-lust is always a strong motive. 

2. What are they prepared to do to get what they want? Most everything. The only thing Communist wouldn't do is risk his own life. You see, self-preservation is very important to him. Even if it means the unwilling giving up of his desires. As long as he is alive, he considers himself the victor.

3. Are they evil to the core, or simply misunderstood? Evil to the core, I am afraid, though at times I get the false hope that he is otherwise. He certainly is misunderstood, though. Too many people think he is doing something much higher, much better than he really is. 

4. What was their past like? What about their childhood? Was there one defining moment that made them embrace their evil ways? He was born in the slums of a distant city. His first memory was in a street at night, all alone. He survived in this city for twelve years, only through much theft and mendacity. He finally grew tired of this lifestyle, and moved to the country, where a strange man on the side of the road took Communist into his home. Communist had yet no name, and called himself "The Man". Though first strangely thankful, and feeling indebted to the man who took him in, Communist soon found his motive to be ulterior, though it bothered him not. In fact, once the age of twenty, he helped him create many machines and inventions of unknown quantity and functionalities. All that was know of them was that they all became illegal in coming years, and the two were put into jail for their work. This was the defining moment for him, when the rage, boiling up was pent inside of him, and he became reprobate. After an unknown about of years in prison life, they were released, though the other man did not make it out alive. From here, Communist looked at the world as his enemy. 

5. Now that they’re evil, have they turned their back on everyone, or is there still someone in their life that they care for? (Brother? Daughter? Love interest? Mother? Someone who is just as evil as they are?) The one man who cared for him is the only one who ever found a soft spot in his stone-hard heart. Now that he is no longer alive, Communist does nothing more for anyone than defend his partner-in-crime at the last.

6. Do they like hugs? If you dared get close enough to him to touch him, you'd be lucky to be uninjured, if that answers your question. ;)

7. Are they plagued by something? (Nightmares, terrible thoughts?) Nightmares, yes. All the time. I would say he was plagued by terrible thoughts, but he certainly wouldn't call his thoughts that.

8. Who are they more similar to: Gollum or Maleficent? I have not the pleasure of knowing Maleficent, but I can say that Communist is not much like Gollum, other than his self-absorbed-ness. 

9. If your villain could have their choice of transportation what would it be? Whatever gets him there fastest. Communist is not a patient man. 

10. If you met your villain in the street, how afraid would you be? Are they evil enough to kill their creator? I would certainly be frightened. But I don't think he would kill me - he doesn't kill without reason. And he only has one thing against me - at first, I tried to make him a bit more likeable. As you see, it didn't exactly take. 

“I am Communist the great! No one will ever defeat me!”
“Is that so?” the man asked. “Well, you better get used to disappointment.” 
A long white arrow flew from the darkness.
