I am still really not sure how I want to handle it, and I am still deciding whether I want the villain to have more depth, or whether I want the villain to be a standard-issue 'perfectly evil' dude.
The villain is a Prince of Grims (a kingdom) who has managed to do a number on the world economy. He has gotten rich off of the high unemployment, and uses the newly created public infrastructure to run a massive theft scheme, enriching himself and his henchmen.
From there I am unsure as to what the story is supposed to be. He makes a deal with The Devil, and is offered two gifts: an army of thousands, and the chance to not only kill his own people, but to gain their power and their allegiance. This is mostly a moral dilemma for me. Should we do evil, or should we be good? Should the villain be expected to have a higher level of empathy?
I am trying to think of a character arc for the villain, but I am not sure where I am going to go with him. I want him to have a tragic backstory, 0b46394aab
