Recall the worst person you’ve ever met. A psychotic boss, a back-stabbing friend, a playground bully. Or make someone up.
Next, assign one redeeming quality to this character—kindness, courtesy, sympathy, a fondness for animals. Then write a scene with this person in action, conversing with others.
Perhaps you show a sadistic ex-spouse helping a homeless person find shelter, or a bank robber arranging a baby-sitter on behalf of a woman he’s just tied up.
The result? A fully dimensional villain.
