The Sympathetic Villain

Create a fantasy villain with a backstory that evokes sympathy.

Every villain has a story and quite often, they are not born bad, but turned into villains due to certain events and experiences. In your narrative, breathe life into a villain that readers can empathize with. Explore their journey and the incidents that transformed them into a villain. You could delve into questions such as, ‘What made them take the path of darkness?’ or ‘Is there any chance of redemption for them?’. This prompt can help you create a multifaceted character and elicit mixed feelings in your readers.
