People should stop confusing what they want from a character with who a character is.
Specifically when this character is evil.
Let the psycho bastard be a psycho bastard. And stop trying to force the poor character to be what they are not… and they are NOT the good guy/girl. Or misunderstood. Or needing love, affection, and hugs. They need a swift kick in the ass and probably to be shot in the face out back.

The inferno of the living is not something that will be; if there is one, it is what is already here, the inferno where we live every day, that we form by being together. There are two ways to escape suffering it. The first is easy for many: accept the inferno and become such a part of it that you can no longer see it. The second is risky and demands constant vigilance and apprehension: seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space.
