  • Female villain who doesn’t do that redemption bullshit
  • Female villain who can kick ass and hold her own at the top of her game
  • Female villain who is unapologetic about anything she does for her own benefit
  • Female villain who is not egotistical and megalomaniacal enough to think that she can step out of line with her (genderless) demon masters
  • Female villain who will destroy those who mistreat women because they are evil - without succumbing to the foibles of being ‘good’
  • Female villain who does not hesitate to step on the backs of anyone she needs to, man or woman, to raise her own position
  • Female villain who is perfectly feminine while being no less powerful
  • Female villain who is not overly tropey or moustache-twirly
  • Female villain who is intelligent, ruthless, cold-blooded, but still with motherly instincts and some commonly thought of as “womanly” traits - but won’t let them interfere with her goals
  • Can look demons, gods, vampires, and monsters in the eye unflinchingly, and yet can still have her humanity touched by things that are too cruel or too monstrous - even if she allows them to continue
  • The perfect female antagonist

It’s a survival thing. I made a lot of devil’s bargains and I stuck to them. As a result I live somewhat dangerously and quite comfortably. And my mother, who no longer recognizes me, has the best room in the clinic. I get up every morning, put on my game face and do what I have to.
