Sangome Posted September 21, 2009 Share Posted September 21, 2009 [SIZE="1"][FONT="Microsoft Sans Serif"][COLOR="#862A51"]Inspired by [URL="http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=60709"]Gavin's thread here[/URL], it's basically the same concept, just in video game flavor. Hooray! So to start things off, one of my absolute favorite villains in a game is [spoiler]Dahlia Hawthorne[/spoiler] in [I]Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations[/I]. She is an absolutely deplorable human being, [spoiler]her crimes including poisoning/attempting to poison at least four people, three of which succeeded [though one of THOSE came back from a several-year-long-coma to whoop butt, and another was essentially goaded into poisoning [I]himself[/I]], stole her father's precious gem in order to flee with her "lover", who she also set up [with his input, granted] to make it look like an abduction, THEN staged a suicide to let HIM take the blame...while he went on to poison himself, as mentioned earlier. She also sent her sister to pose as herself, as Phoenix's girlfriend [though Iris wound up falling in love with him and was genuinely sweet. D'aww].[/spoiler] Oh, but the fun doesn't stop there: [spoiler]She also was in on a plot to assassinate Maya [who is technically her blood relative] just to get revenge on Mia for getting her a guilty verdict, THEN later goes on to take control of Maya's body to properly disguise herself as Iris, so she'd get the blame for a murder she did not commit. All this while Dahlia herself was [B]dead[/B].[/spoiler] So then why do I like her so much? Perhaps it's because I've always had a fascination with her character type, trying to deconstruct their mindset in an attempt to figure out why they did what they did. I may have also pitied her somewhat, considering how her [spoiler]parents essentially didn't want her[/spoiler], but I dunno. She's just so freakishly evil and batcrap insane, easily one of the most evl characters I've encountered in a game, ever. I just can't help but like her. She is a terrible human being, definitely deserving [spoiler]what she got in the end[/spoiler], and definitely a master at what she does [[spoiler]giving off a delicate, frail persona to throw people off, which probably just adds to how utterly messed up she is[/spoiler]], but she's just fascinating and terrifying. Anyway, now that I'm done assaulting you with a wall of text and spoilers, it's your guys's turn.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
