Opposite of the heroes journey. A villain doesn't become evil for the sake of evil itself. Every villain has a story, often one that is more in depth, interesting and tragic than the story of the hero. A powerful dark magic user with a grudge against people and established government is slowly being shaped by the winds of fate, but those stories still need to be written. How did such a powerful being become the way he is? what was the instrument of his fall from grace? who was involved? who wronged him? who befriended him? who did he meet? who did he lose? who did he save? who did he kill? And how did he become a dark lord in command of armies and powerful allies and friends at his side? And finally, who will help me write this story?
