Hmm. Let me get my evil seer and good seer from Their Posthumous Lives duology.
I like how evil he is and how evil he knows he is. Unapologetic evil. He’s slick about it, too.
What I don’t like about him is how unwilling he is to be human, but this comes from him being unable to understand emotions very well.
He’s a psychopath and while I like that about him, boy does he make it difficult for me to write any remotely touching scene with him. He’s a villain, but he’s also got a heart “somewhat”. Come on Richard, admit it, you’re in love, you’re lonely, and sometimes you do wish you were not immortal.
He’s trying too hard to not be human and it’s getting ridiculous.
He’s a smart detective, writer, and good-enough father. I like how affectionate he is toward his wife and how willing he is to show his vulnerability to her. He loves her so much and she’s his rock.
BUT, Mallord has hero complex. But who can blame him? He’s been called “legendary detective” for decades and he HAS been a hero to many. Also, he is a tad narcissist although he does not want to admit it.
But recently, he realized he had hero complex and he’s embarrassed about it. That he should be!
I’m tired of him not admitting he’s made mistakes that might have cost the lives of five people (not dead yet…YET). Admit it, Mallord, you’re not perfect. Make me write you admitting it, please, I’ve been dying to do it. Embarrass yourself in front of your friends. PLEASE.
Basically, that was me ranting about my characters, to my characters XD
