Villainous Developments


The other day, I was writing Super Sporty 7, and I was on page 35, and I realized that I didn't really have a villain. By that I mean that I knew there was going to be a villain, but I didn't really know much about him. I didn't even know his name! So I shut down the computer, got out a notebook and a pencil, and, with the help of an excellent book (The Weekend Novelist by Robert J. Ray), I drew up a character sketch:

Name: Tombulus Mako

Age: 28 (Skerndroth years)

Gender: Male

Planet of Origin: Skerndroth

Evil Specialty: Mind control

Physical traits: Tall, thin, yellow humanoid alien with blue stripes on face. Constantly wears a ridiculous-looking helmet with various pieces of gadgetry on it which obscures half of his face. Also wears a dinner jacket.

Motivation: An obsessive desire to be more evil than his little brother, Tymon.

Obviously, this isn't my complete character sketch, but the basics are there. Some things will probably change as well, because, once they're on paper, a character tends to write themselves. However, I have my villain, which is what counts!

Ellie out!
