Once upon a time on a local RP board, a Sanderfan concocted a villainous character named Nighthound. Nighthound was so depraved, so sadistic, so universally despised, that the players of the RP took to repeating the sentence "And then Nighthound died" to themselves just to cope. Eventually other sadistic characters were concocted, and the tradition was expanded into a full list. The ATTD list, we called it--short for "And Then They Died." Ladies and gentlemen, this is your chance to get in on this fine tradition. In this thread we will assemble the absolute worst villains from the world of fiction, the villains who are so awful, so horrifically devious, that the reader can do nothing but hope and pray for the page that spells this character's untimely demise. We will assemble a list, so all may desire these villains' deaths as strongly as you do. I'll start by listing a character from The Algebraist, which I am currently reading. I'm not far into the book, but already I can tell the the Archimandrite Luceferous, warrior priest of the Starveling Cult of Leseum9IV, is a worthy addition. Six pages into the novel, during the Archimandrite's introduction scene, we learn that the Archimandrite had the severed head of a rebel leader named Stinausin kept alive by technological means, and then hung from the ceiling in his quarters to be used as a punchball whenever Luseferous is in a foul mood. View this passage describing the situation to see my case for Luseferous' entrance to the ATTD List. Your turn! Who are the absolute worst villains in your opinion? Remember to mark major spoilers, and to have fun... or as much fun is possible, with company like these afoot.
